The Utah Meet & Greet, Jan 28, 2012. Be there!

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

We're on!

 

Meet time: Saturday, January 28th, at 11:00 a.m. I hope everybody will be there. =-)

 

The Address: Airport Rd, (I will pm the exact building number closer to meet).

Ogden UT, 84403

 

The Location:

 

Ray Kimber's newly acquired personal flight hangar. Ray keeps his "pride and joy" in this flight hangar. I'll say no more. Think Motorcycle collections and BMW collections.. Spectra also used to manufacturer mics and amps, and turntables in the 1970's here. There will be a lot of neat history at this location. There will also be refreshments, tables, and chairs already at this location. All we require is you, your cans, and a powerstrip - just to make sure. It is also encouraged to bring your Amps and sources. biggrin.gif

Dang that date is way too soon for me to make it. If it were in February instead (or later) then there'd be a possibility, but next weekend is too short of a notice. frown.gif

 

Who owns the SR-009 and KGSSHV btw? Would've liked a chance to hear those. If the date was later, I could've brought my own electrostatic gear too (specifically the HeadAmp BHSE).

^^Dang would've liked to hear the BHSE :P. Hennyo is the owner of both the SR-009 and KGSSHV.

Hi, Asr.

The 009 SZ-013 "was" mine. Now it's Michael's.

The KGSSHV is the one Michael has been building for me (he's going to ship after the meet).

Regards,

Erico

^^ Pictures of the KGSSHV will come. As far as I know the Sr 009 is basically unopened, only being used to test that it works... The attendees at this meet will be very lucky indeed. We've all met before and while there are more people in UT, I didn't invite many. (Mostly because the last meet I organized was a lot of work..) This is meant to assemble all the best of the best in one room. But mainly the small number is because Ray's hosting and he's got many, many millions of dollars worth of toys on our venue.

 

I wish we could wait too, but as Eric said, the KGSSHV is being shipped out later that day. And Ray's schedule only the 28th is open up till late March this year.

Hennyo, thanks for putting this together.  I am really looking forward to hear the KGSSHV/009 combo.  It is the top phone on my list right now.  I heard the BHSE/009 and the WES/009 and they sounded very different.  Looking forward to it.  I also wanted to work with Kimber to help me with some special ICs.  

post #9 of 21

Man I'd really like to make it up there being relatively new to Ut and HF... Supposed to be up in PC next Saturday for a work event frown.gif... 

post #10 of 21

Id love to make it and attend this as my first meet.  The timing and the road conditions make me a bit nervous driving from Boise.  Maybe next time.

post #11 of 21

Hennyo, can you post time and address of meet for this Saturday?  Thanks.

Hope you guys had fun today; I'm jealous!  Keep me in mind the next time you have one of these as I'll make my work schedule fit around it beyersmile.png

post #14 of 21

I just wanted to write a quick note to thank Hennyo for organizing a highly fun event. And most of all to Ray Kimber for his hospitality as a host and what a great host he is.  We had a lot of fun.  Got to create a profile on Ray's Smyth's Realizer, to listen to the 009, the other stax and the Orpheus system again.  Just love the 009.  Still prefer it over the Orpheus.  I think we need to have another one in the Summer and may be trying one of Ray's fleet of Honda or Yamaha bikes ;-)

We may have another one sooner than that. It was great to see you again Jalo! I think 8-10 weeks sounds fair? Followed by a long break? I'm hoping you may have your lcd-3's/upgrade path by then. I hope to have my own working KGSSHV and Buffallo III Dac at that time.. Once we got it running through the ExTata.. OHhhhhh "Hhhhnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnyyyggghhh" We'll have to see how the ESP 950 sounds through it. I really enjoyed that headphone this time around. (ExTaTa as well.) I cannot wait to see tangible improvements. I could still hear the potential from both the Sr 009 and ESP 950, my favorite complimentary Estats these days.
