Toying with the Idea: Austin, TX Mini-Meet (Seriously. Mini is the key word here) - Page 2

post #16 of 28
Hi, I live in Austin and I'd love to join in. I was prevented from getting serious over the past few years by repeated moves and remodeling but I'd be very keen on hearing a serious hp listening system at long last, especially with electrostatic or planar magnetic drivers.

I have some basic toys of my own to bring but nothing unusual (unless someone would like to check out a GuitarJack 2; the rest is Duet I/K701/iMod 4g/RSA SR71/original Atrios -- nice oldies).

Side note -- did Amtrak to Chicago once: Austin to Dallas took seven hours!

009 is probably only staying through the weekend so anyone that wants to hear it had best get over here tomorrow. Anytime before 6 or so tomorrow would be fine. PM me for the location.

Yes I do though Alex might be coming to pry it away from me soon. Want to come over tomorrow before 12:30 and try it? :D

I have a pretty full day at work today, unfortunately.  

 

So... after reading the 800 thread it sounds like you are in the market for one?

Wait what? I'm selling my 800s.

To get 009s? Big step in price.

After doing the math I shouldn't need to throw in too much more to get them and the LLs (in the grand scheme of things). 

 

To sell:

Calyx 24/192 (Which was already for sale)

HD800

Liquid Fire

iMac (This one will hurt a bit, but I've got my MBP and haven't played games in a good while so it's basically a really expensive 27" TV right now)

 

You said you wouldn't at the Dallas meet, but man...after hearing it? I can't stop myself. At least there's nowhere to go from here.

Yeah I'm not interested in owning a set of 009s. And yes I have heard them.

Oh no. I totally get your preference. I know what kind of sound you like. biggrin.gif

I knew you'd heard them and they weren't for you. But after I heard them...powerless.

And yes...I'm in the market for one.
