Any New Orleans area Head-Fi members? - Page 3

post #31 of 43
Old Metairie checking in. I'm about as an amateur at this stuff as can be. I'm wanting to fonny break away from the cheap stuff and start hearing music for its potential.

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.

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.

 

Thx!

My setup is a little more midfi. I'm running oppo->zdac->Schiit lyr-> q701/focal classic/ hd570. I use a laptop as often asus->geek out 450->focal spirit classic. Using CDs or wav 1440 files. Nothing is gonna compare to those hd800s. But I'm happy with it / them for now

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.

Both of you guys have phones I'd like to hear. What days are good. We're hitting season here so I'm down to Wednesday off. But im usually free until 2pm if its local.

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

If you're planning an all nighter that may be the only option. I can host for a couple hours but a surly dog and gf make it uncomfortable for extended periods.Our place is pretty small.
I also work in service but nights only. Let me know how your schedule shapes up. I know this should be a pm but still hoping for joiners
