Well just wanted to thank those that turned out for a fun mini meet weekend. Just for those that don't know how Florida rolls, our meets are more about friends getting together and having a fun time together than gear listening. That said we had some good gear present so I thought I'd open this up for some impressions.
Carl brought a Woo WA6SE that just killed! It was set up with a Macbook and small dac and the HiFiman 500 headphones. This amp just plain out rocks! I've heard the 6 before a few WA6SE and while they were good I had not had this reaction. Carl's is set up slightly different than stock and was a great match for the HiFiMan 500. This set up produced very clean detailed sound from top to bottom with great instrument definition and detail I also listened to the Audio Technica AD2ks and Sony PFR-V1 (weird but wonderful small speaker orbs with bass tubes!!). The AD 2ks were wonderful through this set up and it really showed off the AD2ks bass abilities. The sony's were a surprise as they have been riding the pine in the back of my closet for the past year and WOW they sounded good out of this set up.
Frank had his DynaMight there as always the sound he gets is stunning. He's had this amp or an iteration of it for some time and I am always impressed each time I hear it. The HiFiMan 500s shined on his set up.
I also had a Wavac MD300b set up with K1000s and the Sonic Studio 305 and as were able to get the JH 3a demo kit for the weekend and most were very impressed with the sound they heard.
As always the meet was bookended with a few meals out and a few great beers to share. My thanks to all that attended!
