As usual, I spent more time talking to folks than listening to music. Lots of folks I have seen at many meets for many years...not going to name names, but really enjoyed seeing you guys again. And I had some great chats with some folks I had never met in person before...really enjoyed that as well. Got some great new music ideas too!
I really enjoyed the Eddie Current Balancing Act. Had never heard one before - mighty impressive.
The equally as impressive TTVJ Millet 307A
Finally heard the production version of the EF-6, driving the HE-6 of course. Sounded very good, and certainly drove the HE-6 with great authority and seriously deep and powerful bass:
I brought the Decware Mini-Torii and the AT W3000ANV - will look forward to other people's comments, but of course I think it sounded great
DBel's prototype Liquid Glass was VERY impressive sounding, I thought...one of the things I enjoyed the most at the show, actually.
The ever popular Liquid Fire, which has sounded good at all the meets I have heard it at.
Analog and digital sources from Burmester were beautiful looking and sounded great with the Apex Peak/Volcano used for the headphone amp. I'm very familiar with the P/V, and I think highly of them. I first listened to the Burmester / Apex combo on the Sennheiser HD-700, and heard some good things but thought the sound was kind of bright/aggressive. I then plugged in my 3000ANV's, and was much more impressed by the Burmester stuff. The HD-700 don't sound like my cup of tea.
The Alnic HP-5000 was also very impressive sounding...I want to learn more about and hear more about this amp.
The massive Beta 24 driving the HE-6 from its speaker taps was also awesome:
I also liked what I heard from the Fostex TH-900, but not enough to fork over for a pair, for now. Will need to hear more first.
My son RJ, who has been coming to meets with me since he was 8, is now taller than Ray Samuels (sorry Ray!)
Again, a wonderful meet, sorry I didn't take more pics. But it was all about listening to, and talking about, some awesome headphone gear!
