Don't bring an iPod, it won't do certain equipment justice.  Give it flak....(flac,..ha.ha) and hopefully you get the possible sound. 

I don't think there is anything wrong with bringing an external drive, if anything, you can reference anything you want and not have to worry about it after you go home.  It's always nice to know what different genres of music sound like over certain sound systems.

iPods are worth listening if they're Rockboxed. And without Rockbox, most of then sound pretty good as well

Bought some name tags and alcohol wipes. Come to my table at the meet for a name tag. Whoever needs wipes, I'll have some handy as well.

Or, if they are like mine, mated to an algorythm solo via custom silver interconnect and full of wav files biggrin.gif

I really wanna see what that Solo can do to my iPhone... All MP3 files in my phone, that's why I'm not a fan of Apple sources. I'm a FLAC junkie haha. Go Hifiman and Cowon for portable sources!

Hopefully the people will take your wipes more than mine because mine are damn expensive and hard to get without tons of shopping Fee...

AAC and LAME MP3 has come a long, long way. It's transparent enough that I usually fail ABX tests on foobar with 320 ABR AAC vs FLAC. That's on the LCD-2 w/ DAC-1. Which is a plenty resolving rig. I don't doubt others can hear the difference, but it's a good thing for my iPod that I can't beyersmile.png

 

Nothing against flac, hell 2/3 of my library's filled with it. But that's mostly for archival purposes. I could live with AAC any day.

 

Might not be able to bring more than 200GBs of music though, my only spare external drive is pretty full already. And this meet might be the last time where I can bring the Westones. Planning to reshell with driver upgrades eventually!

Hope you guys have enough power to feed my very power hungry Vintage AKGs!! So far, I found my EF5 and the Lyr to have enough juice to power them, will be curious to see what other setups sound like with a timeless headphone.

I have good news and bad news.

The good news is I made a cable with 4 pin Neutrik connector for the speaker taps of my Carver Receiver. That's 130 WPC for you planar magnetic headphone owners. The Carver is a real treat no matter how you plug into it.

The bad news is my Lawton Audio D7000's will not be back from Surgery in time for the meet. Shortiefish's D2000's will have to fill in.

frown.gif Looked forward to listening to those Denons.

 

Well, the D2000 will be there. Still quite excited, as they would be the first time I get to hear Denons.

Sorry, I'm disappointed too. I was really hoping to share them this weekend. I promise I'll bring them to the next meet.
