Trying to determine what will sound best for prog rock/prog metal, and stoner sound.
If you guys plan a meetup, include me.
I would still be happy to attend a meet, but I have sold most of my headphone stuff. I still have the W4S DAC and SX-950 but I use them with my speakers. I sold most of it off slowly to help pay for school and other expenses as they came up. When I accumulated more discretionary income I ended up spending it on another hobby. The STAX setup was the best I have heard, but I can't be spending that kind of money again soon. Maybe another set of LCDs will be in my future. Those will run just fine on my Pioneer.
As for Wilson Audio, I am not the biggest fan. Some nice stuff, but he harps too much about how two channel is better than surround sound, even for films.
Peek a Boo!! Greetings from The Woods of Livingston! near Baton Rouge if it doesn't t ring a bell..... I too am new to the hifi scene but have an ok setup made out of Asus and Onkyo hand-me-downs.... and some k701's and Sony xb's i have collected over time....
I'd love to make a meet sometime to get a better feel of whats out there.
Hello fellow NOLA head-fiers, I'll be camped out in mid-city for quite a while. Lemmie know about any head-fi meets, get-togethers, etc.
Hello. I live in Baton Rouge. I would love to meet up and check out some high end set ups; as well as share my setup ( bifrost uber>m-stage hpa-2>hd 800)
Great, man. I would love to try out that Schiit lyr with my setup, and try out all your cans. I wish there was a bigger community of headphone enthusiasts in the area.
If there's anyone willing to act, I'd be willing take my HE-500 w/ speaker amp setup.
I work at a restaurant, so my schedule is constantly in flux...but I could meet up on a Wednesday night. It is about an hour drive out to New Orleans. I get my schedule today or tomorrow. So now we need to just find a place or pick one.
I would also like to hear those HE-500s as well!
I can't host as I live with my parents in Baton Rouge....but I have money and we could rent a hotel or something else...
EDIT: Added info
I've always been a headphone/earphone enthusiast, but I'm trying to branch out from another expensive hobby (whiskey).
I live in Lakeview, but my main rig is at my office in Mandeville: Schiit Modi > Valhalla 2 > HD700.
Until about a month ago it was FiiO E17 > HD650, which has moved home. I also have a set of Shure 535s and nice surround and stero office setups. I'd like to meet some folks in the area that are into this stuff as well.
Yeah, aphexist. I would like to meet up as well. I'd like to trying your Valhalla 2 and listen to your other cans. The can enthusiasts seem to be far and few between on Head-Fi. I have been considering making a longer drive or flight out to the bigger Head-Fi meets. Though, I am down for a small meet up. As you have probably read in the above thread me and this other guy were trying to meet up. He has some other Schitt gear that I wanted to try. I am happy to see some life in this thread. I continually check it.
