I had a terrific time, and special thanks to my boy Alex Rosson (and Reid, you're a rockstar) from Audeze for putting this together; to Ken & the ALO team for being such good people, and making killer products. To the Schiit team for also being good people, and making me laugh. To Jude, my friend, SO glad you could make it, and it was great seeing you as always!!
To Mark: I LOVED being asked to share my stories about Arif Mardin and Mr. Ertegun with you, it meant the WORLD to me.
To VAL - your hospitality, laughs, and I'm looking forward to writing about the M-80's for The Daily Swarm!!
Of course Bentley - for the shots, the laughs, the smiles, it felt like an underground event at this AMAZING home
(pix to follow on the CEntrance Facebook page/blog - to be updated)
and to BattleBrat - whom I was happy to give a lift to the meet and the afterparty, who also aided me in set-up!
He made my day when, without solicitation, I sat him to sit down in front of the CEntrance Audiophile Desktop System, as I
was in the midst of dialing it in - and I asked him what he thought, he said: "Holographic" - I should have left on the high note!
Pulled the George Costanza
Also: Admitting this was my first headphone meet, as a sponsor/exhibitor (usually I'm merely the journalist, getting to listen and watch)
I learned that you can't bring speakers to a headphone meet!! Well, perhaps you can have them, but use them before and after (or at very
select times). I blame my CEntrance team for setting me up!! SMILE.
I'm used to setting up big systems in hotel rooms, and to be honest, I loved the vibe of this meet - like the very first CanJam in Los Angeles!!
I look forward to more!!!!
