wow all of the new woo audio gear looks absolutely terrible, massive step back in terms of design when compared to their current line up.

Somebody ask Justin about his plans for the Gilmore X2...

I kind of like it. It's retro sci-fi. Fritz Lang's Metropolis meets  Forbidden Planet.

 

@Dminches .  Are those attenuators stepped, so one can match volumes?

I personally don't think that those will look nice in my room... too retro sci-fi looking

I will post my full notes when I get home because typing on a phone is terrible.

I listened to all 3 amps they had at the table. With how busy they were they weren't allowing the cans to leave the table but I suspect the best pairing would be with the Darkstar.

These are the amps at the table. I'll give details when I get home. In backwards order of preference:

3. Eddie Current 2a3
2. RWA Audeze edition
1. Cavalli Liquid Fire

Has anyone at the show gotten to play with the new Wyred 4 Sound music server?
post #160 of 678

Speaking of Wyred 4 Sound, still no sightings of the smaller chassis?

If anyone has seen/heard the new Fostex products yet then please feel free to post your thoughts (TH900 headphones and HP-A8 DAC headphone amp).  It sounds like everyone is having a brilliant time.

Justin says he is nearly full time building BHSEs and work on the X2 is moving slowly because of it. He said he might have news in about 6 months. Needless to say the project is far from completed. Move on to something else if you are holding out for the GilmoreX2.

Jude thanks for covering the RS 220.   I've been interested in the Wireless Sennheisers for High Def TV and Movie viewing and now I'm glad to hear that music performance with the RS 220 will also be a pleasurable experience.  I'll be looking for the street price now.
