Yes I do & you listen to it with B-52 in balanced mode as the original cable is terminated to 3 pins XLRs.

The Boulder Balanced CD player will be there too.

I will add it to the headphone list in the first post. Thanks Ray

I plan on being there.  I will hopefully bring my ODAC, EHHA Rev A, and HE-500's.  Perhaps my Bijou amp and Opus DAC as well with some T50RP's that I modified.

post #20 of 162

To clarify on what I said before, I can definitely bring the following:

 

Headphone(s):

 

Ultrasone Edition 8

and I'll probably bring my Audez'e LCD3's since I have the carrying case.

 

DAPs:

 

Hifiman HM801

Hifiman HM601

HiSound Studio V

 

DAC/amps:

 

Fostex HP-P1

Objective 2

PA2V2

 

Again, I'll have to travel fairly light, lest I'd bring more.

Fang will be at the meet for HiFiMan / Head-Direct.  

post #23 of 162

I plan on attending.  I'm leaning towards bringing a JVC DX1000 and iBasso D7 since neither is scheduled to make an appearance.  I could potentially bring my T1, K400, K501, and Woo WA3--or anything else in my sig, really--if anyone would be interested in checking it out.

I was recently talking with David from Hammertone Audio, the global distributor for Allnic Audio.  David mentioned Allnic Audio is in the process of releasing a headphone amplifier, the HPA5000.  It is scheduled to be released soon.  David will try and send one to the meet to give the Chicago Head-Fiers a chance to audition there first headphone amplifier.  It will be available in black or the silver shown in the photo below.  Some information on the design is below the picture.  I did have a chance to talk with the designer who was actually visiting Hammertone Audio this weekend.  With its optimization for 40-50 ohm headphones and being capable of 5 wpc, if it can make the meet, I look forward to hearing it with some of the great headphones that will be at the meet.

 

 

Allnic-HP-(lr)1.jpg

The HPA5000 could be listed as an OTL and OCL (Output Transformerless and Output Capacitatorless) design. Power output is approximately 5 WPC into a 40 to 50 Ohm impedance. The tubes in each channel (1) 6AN8 (1) E180CC (2) 7233. Voltage gain is +24dB. This amounts to a pure tube design possessing 2 pairs of RCA inputs and one 1/4" headphone jack output. The gain attenuator is Allnic designed and built 41 silver stepped.

The DX1000 would be great.

I just ordered Fostex TH900's, which I'll hopefully have in time for the meet.

post #27 of 162

I'll be there. I'll bring a Yulong D100 (macbook pro), Bottlehead Crack, and maybe a Gamma 1 dac - and headphones: Beyer 880/600, Senn HD600, and AKG K702 (unless any of those prove to be doubles or unnecessary). 

 

Has anyone reached out to Shure? It's just down the street from them.

I tried reaching out the past several years to Shure but they did not respond so I didn't even try this year.  If someone has any direct contact, maybe they can make the contact.

I sent a note to my old PR buddy who did work for them. Who knows what we'll hear.

I hope they respond as there has been a request to have the new 1840 available at the meet.
