2012 Headphone Meet @ LAX Hilton - Saturday, August 18, 2012 - OFFICIAL THREAD - Page 24  

post #346 of 483

Fees are fine, as the privildedge of seeing unique best of breed combinations don't really exist anywhere, due to the internet wiping out margins that allow for testing. Plus, its member driven. If someone had space in their business and power to do this, then this could be free, but the odds of that happening are nil. I won't need a table, but I will surely be listening to combinations trying to find out what sounds good, to me.

I can't make it, but I'm going to send some modded vintage orthos down to the meet.  Questhate has graciously agreed to bring them, and they will be at his and Purrin's table somewhere.  Please be careful with them, as they are 30 years old! 

 

I'm not sure which ones yet, but it looks like it will at least be:

 

Yamaha YH1

Yamaha YH3

Fostex T20v1

 

and maybe my modded T50rp and an HP50...

I haven't heard these headphones myself yet, but from the look of the measurements, the LAX folks should be in for a treat....

700

 

Will be bringing a pair of Wachara's DIY Stax Omega clones. These will be paired with a new  "poor-man's" tube amp. These headphones open up a whole new world in low cost high performance DIY.

I should have Maxvla's there.  PM me.

Will Justin be bringing the GSX?  

 

I think we need some additions to the front.  The Electra, 2 PWDs, another Bryston, Ultimate Ears, Leckerton UHA6S, Portaphile 627; Headroom gear TBD and maybe some new Schiit.

Im in. I'll bring my Centrance Dacport running off an iPad and a selection of headphones including AKG K550s, AKG K701s and Phiaton PS320s. If there's room at someones table I'd be happy to bring my Oppo SACD player and some choice disks as well.
post #358 of 483

Hmm, I will bringing a Sennheiser Amperior to the meet as well, seeing no one else is bringing one. smily_headphones1.gif

I'm not sure.  I've only pasted the stuff that people have posted, even if I already have a pretty good idea about what they're bringing - don't want to force anybody to bring something they don't want to.

You can take me off the list so someone else can go. Was really hoping to go but with college starting i can't afford the Metrolink. 

Hopefully i'll come to another meet sooner or later.
