Anyone remenber an impression of my system? (It was the Audeze LCD2 recabled with the yellow kevlar jacket [yes, kevlar], plus the modified Woo WA6-SE and Hifiman EF5 amps.)

I'm trying to wrap up a review. Should be soon.

Thank you for bring that set-up, I was the kid that keep coming back and being mind blown by your set-up.

Sorry for the delayed response, I have been away. No problem "warrenpchi", I did not perceive any rudeness. I will try to bring the Magnums to the next meet if people are interested.

I have heard this amp with the HE-6's at the last two LA meets. And will say it again and again. 

This is the best I have heard the HE-6's from a tube amp, it is on par with my restored SX 1250 (165w/ch) but the tubes give it more musicality vs. the SS crispness of the SX 1250.

If you are looking to soften the analytical nature of the HE-6 this could very well be an end game set up.

Very Nice.  I'm now also curious if this would syngergize with the HD-800 as well?

Haven't heard the HE-800, but I'll borrow Anax*'s pair and give it a spin.

So we have an overage of $165.71. We have a couple of options:

 

  1. Donate to charity of choice
  2. Save up for a mini-meet
  3. Donate to HF

 

I'll let the masses decide. biggrin.gif

 

hold onto it to apply towards the next meet.

I'll keep it around for next year or the next big one.

post #189 of 191

I concur with keeping it around for the next meet. 

As an aside, I would gladly donate if given the opportunity but would likely be unable to attend (work and baby keep scheduling in a vice). I apologize if lots of requests went out for donations and I missed them, but I would offer the constructive criticism that perhaps there are others lie me who would donate if given the opportunity despite bing unable to attend. 

 

In any event, thanks for putting this on, it has been awesome seeing the aftermath unfold here on Head-fi!

Yeah, that'd be cool, thanks!  Been very interested in Grados period as I've never owned a pair.  obobs[kivich] suggested I start with the SR-225 to get the quintessential Grado experience.  On my to-buy list now.

Or just hold onto it in general, I wouldn't mind that!

Hi Everyone,

 

I know this isn't the right forum for this, but I had a question for all the people who went to the LA meet...

 

We are having a meet in San Diego on Sat. November 3rd. You can read the thread here.

 

Anyway, I would love to have any of you come down to Coronado for the meet.

 

Also, I know this is a long shot, but we had arranged to have Alex Cavalli send down a Liquid Lightning and his Stax SR-009's. However, his 009's got damaged at RMAF/Can Jam.eek.gif

 

Is there anyone from LA who is willing to come down with their Stax SR-009? I'll pay for you gas money and buy you dinner...Plus you could hear how your 009's sound on a Liquid Lightning.

 

I read that you had 3 members who brought their 009's to the LA meet. Maybe one of you might want to come?

 

Anyway, PM me, or post on the San Diego meet thread.

 

Of course, for anyone else who wants to come with gear or without, we are still trying to get a bigger turn out. I know there will be at least one vendor showing a never before seen product...

 

Plus if you've ever wanted to demo a Smyth Realiser, I will ave mine there for demos. Heir Audio will also be doing free ear impressions for anyone who has a proof of purchase of any Heir custom IEM's (of course they will also ship them to China for you for free.)

 

Sorry to post this on your thread, but I figured that would be the best way to contact the LA people.

 

Hope to see you at our meet!

 

-Darin
