On a more serious post, many thanks to the main man, Purrin, for setting this meet up and for graciously covering the cost of the venue. Despite some offers to take $$$, he refused. That's some major generosity! It's a privilege having you as friend and member of this community!
As always, it was great meeting the people of this fantastic community. I really enjoyed sharing my music and talking with many of the people who showed up.
LCD-3: A nice headphone...it's what the LCD-2 should have been. I only listened to them briefly but the overall improvement in linearity is a most welcome treat! I would really need some extended listening time in a personal, intimate setting. At the moment though, my desire to purchase one has been quenched and I no longer have the desire to own one. Perhaps that might change with prolonged listening.
SR-009: Talk about refinement! Listening to it out of n3rdling's rig was the sonic highlight of the meet for me. I didn't find it bright or lean at all. Very fast, dynamic and neutral. It's a damn shame these headphones are so expensive as I would love to own a pair.
Donald North Audio 2A3: Fantastic sounding tube amp. I wish I could have spent more time with this blue beauty. I have avoided jumping into the whole tube arena due to the cost of the tubes but this amp might just change that as the tubes used in this build are very affordable.
LFF's modded T50RPs: Highlight of the meet for me personally. Best ortho I've ever heard, only ortho that has a good amount of air and a nice soundstage. This sounded more like an open headphone really...it totally caught me off gaurd. Tonal balance was fantastic, very similar to the SR009 but wasn't as refined/fast/open.
Thanks! That is seriously quite a compliment, especially coming from you.
LOL! Glad someone read it before the change.
As for the pics, I have "recreational" proof but there are minors here. The actual proof of the original event and all subsequent events until marriage were deleted by SWMBO.
