Iceworks don't allow for bookings on Sundays. Saturday it is.

 

The venue has changed a lot. We'll sort out that mess later on.

Hey I'm definitely interested in coming. New to this headphone business and starving to listen to some cans and setups.

I've got a KRK KNS 8400, FA-011 and e17 to bring along if that's what we're meant to do... :)

ahh oh ermm yeah NOV is cool, culled the cans a bit and suspended a couple solid state headamp projects to concentrate on finishing a killer digitally crossed Speaker rig. but still got a few, some portable, some home, as well as dacs galore which crosses over, thats plenty of time and I would hope to draw a line under everything headphone related DIY by then and NOT start any more for now.

 

cans

HD600, JH13, UM3X (somewhere ...)

 

amps

The Wire (Balanced)

modded D10

Lisa III original w LLP

I think the portable will surprise some people. 'the wire' has been favorably compared to the beta22 and several other amps many times its price and has better measured performance than the O2 in every spec.

 

I've used Zfoil resistors as the only resistor in the signal path (and theres only one per phase) and the whole thing is running on A123 LiFePO4 batteries, seen by many as pretty much the perfect power source for low level components, but with the capability to output 140A bursts at ~14v (+/-6.8v) yes thats 1960W … so lets just say the batteries arent holding it back =)

 

the i2s fifo will surprise some people also, though I may not have any way to show people with or without it in the signal path in my ackodac

 

then we have the LPUHP, anyone got any HE6? i'm quite interested to hear them with these amps. the SS 6.5"revelators in the pic are mid-woofers and will not be powered by the LPUHP, the LPUHP is for my tweeters; but they will also make excellent headphone amps. The have ridiculous measurements, great sound and exceedingly low output impedance with high current, about +/-16V swing (transient power will do 25-30W temporarily) balanced input, single ended output. its basically 'the wire' BAL-SE with 8 x parallel buffers on the output.

Momji, there is NO WAY I'm going if Grev isnt going to be there !  

 

(And, yes, you are the only one here who will find that even remotely amusing)

Hi Guys

 

Momiji has just made me aware of the change of date. I was wondering what happened to April. All good from my end i think. I am pretty sure i will be able to get there.

 

With respect to gear check out my profile with the gear i currently own.

 

Although this will need to be updated as i have now sold off my Yamamoto HA-02 amp and in its place i have a DNA Sonett amp.

 

I also have a Octave Metrum DAC that i will bring along.

 

And i also will have by then (i hope) a special pair of Headphones happy_face1.gif ... details provided closer to the day.

 

cheers j
