Official NYC Meet Sat June 2nd 2012 - Page 24  

post #346 of 427

Because I'm not checking any luggage, I'm just going to pack a few smaller things. Though I'm not yet sure what few small things I'll be bringing, I know for sure I'll be bringing the tiny AudioQuest Dragonfly USB DAC/amp.

I may be able to make it but not sure yet. Hopefully I'll see you guys on Saturday. If I come, I'll bring some of my portable gear (HM801, Protector, maybe other stuff) and Sony Z1000.

Maybe this was discussed and I missed it, but am I correct to assume that tables to set up gear are being provided? I got everything packed up last night, and I think I'll be able to fit it all in my car, but I definitely cannot fit a table....

^ yes.  

 

I just ordered a JDS O2+ODAC all in one, unfortunately it won't arrive until the week after the meet.  Bummer.

post #350 of 427

Umm, no at this point I haven't gotten that far. Its certainly a possibility. Let me see what I can do. If there are volunteers, I may opt for that.

 

I'm a bit hesitant since I still have received back my enormous collection of headphones which include HD800's and so many cables and players from the UK meet last year. The member just simply disappeared with my goods. I need to spark that subject again since Im out thousands of $$...

 

Anyways, I assume it wouldn't happen at this meet since I know most and they are NOT the type that would "steal" gear.

FYI to anyone driving, there is a school across the street from the train station, if parking is full at the hall park there and NOT in the train station parking lot or you will get a ticket unless you load up the meter with quarters.

 

Everyone I know who commutes to the city parks at the school on weekends and holidays to avoid parking parking fees.

I have the same question: Will there be tables (or do we have to bring our own), will there be enough tables (this thing is growing bigger and bigger) and will there be enough outlets and AC power?  Really looking forward to this.

I replaced my highend DAC with a Smyth Realizer which is, at best, an indifferent DAC, but at least it is still much better than the analog outputs on my Dell laptop!  But I just found today that if you do not have a monitor on the other end of the HDMI pass-through, my computer will not output audio into the Realizer via HDMI.  ... and I have no other quality front-ends at the moment. 

 

Does anyone going to the meet have a front-end with an extra output or something that I could run off?  Sorry, and I don't want to impose, but I also see no point of driving all the way to NYC from Rhode Island just to have my SR-009/KGSS sound like ass because they are running off my computer.

I'm bringing my netbook as a last resort, but it is hardly ideal as 1) I don't have it set up for that and 2) USB is not the best way... I use it because I have to, older computer no coax or spdif output...I've used it through my TV using a media server, and oh dear me is there a difference. 

I'll also be bringing my Cowon J3, Aiaiai TMA-1, Audio-Technica A700, and HJE900s (Though I'm not sure how IEM sharing would work)

 

Sorry for the big multi-quote.  I just wanted to let all interested parties know that I'm going to be bringing three DACs with me.  All three have USB input.  Of the three, I'll only be using one, so the other two are up for grabs for use during the show.  Just don't make me regret it.  wink.gif

 

I'll be using the Resolution Cantata Music Center with my amps.

I'll also be bringing a Cary Xciter DAC (single ended only) and a Benchmark DAC1 USB (balanced and unbalanced outputs), so other people can use those if they want.

I would like to be added to the list as well.  Thank you so much for organizing this!  I was able to attend the last one in 2006? and had a great time.  

 

Best,

Aaron.

Hi all - so I'm really excited to announce this. I've been sitting on this secret for months and it has been killing me...

 

Ultimate Ears has just announced a new product and we'll be publicly debuting it at this meet. And this is no ordinary product. Or launch. This is about as exciting as it gets in the world of headphones. The minute I saw this, I recognized it as all of our collective dreams coming true. Today, we are debuting a personalized custom tuned in-ear monitor. What's your favorite sound signature?

 

You'll get to listen at the meet. We'll be posting a sign up sheet later on so everyone can get a turn. I'm happy to answer any questions about these in advance. And without spoiling anything, I believe that another one of our members has already had the pleasure of finding his perfect sound and he'll be commenting on that shortly...

 

Here's the official press release. Enjoy!

 

 

Logitech Introduces World’s First Personally Tuned Custom In-Ear Monitors

Ultimate Ears Personal Reference Monitors Are Engineered to Fit, Look and Sound Exactly Like You Want Them To

 

NEWARK, Calif. — May 31, 2012 — Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) today unveiled the world’s first personally tuned custom in-ear monitors – the Ultimate Ears™ Personal Reference Monitors. Engineered to your exact needs for fit, look and sound, the Ultimate Ears Personal Reference Monitors were created to deliver an experience as personal as your passion for music.

The process begins with our exclusive Personal Reference Tuning Box, which allows you to precisely adjust the sound signature of the monitors based on your listening preferences. The Personal Reference Tuning Box captures your adjustments to the mix of highs, mids and lows, which Ultimate Ears engineers then use to craft Personal Reference Monitors to your very own sound signature based on those exact settings.

 

“There are some people out there – and we’ve met many of them over the years – that know exactly what they need and want in terms of their sound signature,” said Philippe Depallens, vice president and general manager of Wearables at Logitech. “Our new, handcrafted Ultimate Ears Personal Reference Monitors are designed with these people in mind. The Personal Reference Monitors take custom in-ear monitors to a new level of personalization – creating an audio experience tailored to each individual listener.”

 

The Ultimate Ears Personal Reference Monitors showcase Ultimate Ears’ expert technology, honed through years of delivering superior audio experiences and include our proprietary five-armature design, a three-way crossover circuit and triple-bore sound channels. Additionally, the detachable, low-profile, low-distortion cable eliminates burdensome Y-joint connectors and is tightly braided to reduce friction, unraveling and tangling.

 

Ultimate Ears Personal Reference Monitors provide 26 dB of isolation and passive noise cancellation. Similar to our other Custom In-Ear Monitors, they are compatible with wireless transmission systems for the stage and portable media devices. For the first time, there are four custom fine-wood faceplates that will be available exclusively to Ultimate Ears Personal Reference Monitor customers. What’s more, Ultimate Ears Personal Reference Monitors will be the first Ultimate Ears product to come equipped with RewardTag. Through RewardTag, if your Ultimate Ears Personal Reference Monitors are lost or stolen, whoever finds your device can return it through RewardTag and Ultimate Ears will give the individual a reward for their safe return – providing you with extra peace of mind as you travel with your earphones.

 

Pricing and Availability

The Ultimate Ears Personal Reference Monitors are expected to be available in select locations throughout the U.S. including New York, NY, Nashville, TN, Irvine, CA and Los Angeles, CA beginning in June 2012, for a suggested retail price of $1,999.99. Once you place an order, a personal service specialist will be assigned to guide you through the process of fitting, designing and tuning the Ultimate Ears Personal Reference Monitors. For more information please visit www.logitech.com/ue.

I intend on coming.  If I do, I'll bring my balanced RS1 :)

Debating renting a car vs. public transit.  I will be going to the event from JFK, and our gracious host explained how to get the LIRR to Babylon.  Looks faster than driving if I catch the express...

 

Going back, I will be going to LGA.  Anyone know public transit to there, or driving that way?

 

I look forward to meeting you all...

post #359 of 427

Hey, I'd happily offer you a ride from JFK. I live like 10 minutes away and you can avoid public transportation on the way there. PM me and well figure out the details if you're interested
