Omaha Head-Fi Meet New Date May 19/CE! - Page 2

post #16 of 63

Not entirely sure if I'll be able to make this event, if so I wouldn't be getting to Omaha until early afternoon. Mark me down as tentative normal_smile%20.gif

 

Gear I will be lugging to the meet:

Vintage rig

Sansui sr-838 (Stanton 681EEE Mk.2 cart)

Luxman L-80V

My very modest vinyl collection

 

Digital rig

Macbook w/ optical HiFace

Eastern Electric Minimax DAC

Guess I'll bring my Audio gd c-2c amp, even though the preamp section of the Luxman sounds far better IMO beyersmile.png

 

Sennheiser HD-650

 

Again I hope to make this event but am not sure, depends what time I can slink out of work by on Saturday morning.

That will probably happen. The brief tasting led me to buy at least three bottles of bourbon last year.

I actually have a C-2C that is for sale. While it sounds better than a C-2, I'm keeping the C-2 because it fits better in my lifestyle.

I would love to compare the HD600 vs the HD650. It may not be new, but I look forward seeing your gear there.

Audio GD C-2 (which will be for sale for 250$, no longer available new, but amazing discrete performance)

Audio GD C-2C

Audio GD NFB-2

 

Sennheiser HD650

Grado SR325i (which will be for sale for 200$, 300$ new)

Shure SRH840

Sony MDR-V6

I may come by if someone has a good digital source with XLR outs (or an RCA->XLR adapter) to connect my T1/Auditor combo. Don't feel like hauling mixer/turntable/records and no one wants to listen to my records anyway. :)

 

I also have Beyer DT1350s and DT770-80s retrofitted with the new T70 pads.

I will have my Smack amp with XLR outs.

post #26 of 63

If it's not too late to sign up, I can (probably) make this event.  I'd be willing to pack up my Peak/Volcano as long as someone could bring along a source - I really don't want to take my BDP-95 out of the entertainment center or haul CD's there.  3 or 4 headphones and my trunk starts to get a little packed.  Anything else I'm missing?

I will have a couple of CD players and would love to hear the amp! Just show up!

post #28 of 63

Looking for a source with XLR outs or adapters - I have the amp

I will bring my Emotiva ERC-2 but won't have cables.

post #30 of 63

OK, it looks like that ERC-2 has XLR outs - correct? If so, game on!
