I am getting a holiday? When's that? :D

 

Other than being a smartarse, I'd like to put down my preference as being later in May perhaps, got a few things on early in May ...

It would be nice to meet some of the DIYers so I can pay them to fix my headphones...

 

Other than that, I have a few pairs of headphones in my inventory, LCD-2 rev2, FWJ with magnums (the ones that are falling apart), MS1000 (jaben mod), AT AD700, I also have the CLAS, The Continental, O2 amps etc, whatever that means.

Fiio E17

Grado 325i FWJ

hehe youve pretty much already met them, not a very diy centric lot the Brisbane lot, though a couple have bottleheads and crack amps since last time i think, so perhaps a few have caught the disease. if you are talking woodies though, like woodies actually needing work other than rewiring i think you'll be out of luck. i dont really even work on Grados as they are often glued together

anyone got a metrum octave? interested to see how the state of the NOS art has progressed, the measurements are pretty ordinary but reports of the sound are positive. its not at all suitable for my rig, but interested to hear it

There are some DAC-enthusiasts in the qld audio club and Qlders at stereo-net, I'm sure there was at least one getting around Brisbane a while back, I will ask around.

post #42 of 223

Has a date or intention of one been set? Just so that I can coincide it with work if possible as I am interstate.

Thanks.

i'm interested to hear how -60db THD+N 0.1% !! can sound good in a dac. I mean thd in particular isnt everything, but thats GOTTA be audible, slew rate looks very good, IM is ordinary and plots of 5khz sine look horrendus. its puzzling so i'm intrigued, plus i've been pretty critical of NOS in general so I need to be able to say i'm doing more than gazing at numbers

 

objective listening you say? hehe

post #44 of 223

I'm interested, not heard (proper good)headphones so have no gear except for a new set of ears!

 

Late May would work, more notice the better.

 

Cheers,

 

Drew.

@PET-240 - I saw you posted on diyA about the waveio i2s boards, I am collecting mine from the post office tomorrow, fingers crossed I will have some sort of setup rigged up (probably without a proper enclosure) in time for the meet, in that case you could have a listen to mine. Hopefully qusp will bring along some classier alternatives so if you're not in a hurry to drop cash on usb interface boards unseen/heard then hopefully there will be some options there for you. Though the subsequent stages in qusp's setup(s) are a fair bit different to mine. 

 

 

@qusp - It'd be hard for me to listen to the Octave without some serious expectation bias, but hey as long as I'm listening to my choice of music then I won't complain too much.
