I'm interested to try some Amps to power my K701. Is there any chance for that?

Hey Shubar, 

 

Is this a meet to have coffee or if vendor are present to show off some gear?

 

The reason I ask is... haha, i don't have much to contribute other than my K701 with cryo recable. . . but I'm considering to buy some tube amp..

Just got home from the Melbourne Meet. It was very pleasant to meet some of the local HeadFi members.

 

It was as much of an eye opening experience as it is for ears, very nice and wonderful gears!!!

 

I can't remember all the product names, as I'm not used to gears at that level. 

 

One of my most memorable experience was listening to Lejatte145's AKG K1000 on his vintage tube amp. I guess the K1000 is as open as open headphones can get.

Another rare item, HD600 with it's dedicated amp.

Shubar's DarkStar, normally matched to LCD2, but this time powering the AKG K1000.

and this is TomAus(?)'s HD650+Silver Dragon + Burson Amp

Another strange headphone from LaJait, a Sony speaker in da air headphone, with base tubes probing my ear.. it was ... a strange experience lol. But they do sound fantastic, well there wasn't much base and when there is base, the base tubes vibrate in my ear!.

 

Ya, I couldn't wipe the smile of my face from the tickles hahaha. Na, actually the smile is from listening to K1000 =) Loved it, except I would have to lock my self in a room without any windows, it's just a little embarrassing to bee seen wearing it.

Jate thanks for kindly offering your cafe as a venue again! I really enjoyed the meet.

 

It was good to try the HE-60 again, the clarity and detail retrieval is very impressive. The AKG1000 was also amazing! It just goes to show that well designed headphones are really timeless!

so what happened to oversized melbourne meets? We had a 20-30 people consistently in sydney recently. and when I left melbourne a couple of years ago there was a big meet at a church place I think...
post #27 of 40

Yeah, not a lot of action here atm.

 

We had one other large meeting when A2A was just starting up a couple of years ago, and that was it for big meets.

 

The mini-meets have been fun though.

post #28 of 40

Would be nice if we can hold another meet this month though, because I'm leaving for good early next month frown.gif

post #29 of 40

Hey all, any plans within this month so far? Or has the action died down since the increase of online stores?

post #30 of 40

I am interested given that my Miracles come before the meet. How about another more experienced Head-Fier arrange a new meet in a new thread? Or I could arrange it as well I guess.
