Seattle Meet/ Woodinville Saturday 12/15/2012 - Page 5

post #61 of 71

I have long maintained that finding a 'proper' balance between all of the various pieces of equipment is key to getting the most out of the music.  Just as tube rolling and cables etc. can help tailor the final delivery of the music, so too will a gross mismatch between pieces create a situation where no amount of 'tweaking' by the aforementioned adjustments will be able to overcome a poor matchup.

 

Knowing (as in experience) is key here and it's WAY to easy to get hopelessly mired in bad combinations.

 

Which is why sharing of the various possible 'solutions' is or can be so helpful. (A subtle tip of the hat to meets).

ps I will also be bringing a few home made power cables as well.  :thumb

Just got finished packing for the meet. Everything is sitting on the platform dolly. Wife is actually impressed it was done so fast. Told her " been doing this for years" lol. It was actually a very pleasant packing up. Cant wait for breakfast to kick it off.

Yay, I finally get to hear some HD-800's. It was an all Audeze fest last meet.

There are some still around, yeah Audeze gets a lot of love in these parts.

One more day left, getting more and more pumped up for the meet.

Well I guess I can't bring the K 701 with me for this meet since the shipping process got delayed. I'll definitely bring it to the next meet though (fully burned-in). :)

It's just kind of a bummer since I wanted to hear how they sounded with different amps.

Sadly, I have to work all weekend and won't be able to attend. I had wanted to hear the HD800 as well.

Hi Folks, 

 

Sorry to say I won't be able to make this one. We have been absolutely swamped this holiday season. Cyber Monday was surreal, we had a month's worth of orders in a single day. We are staying close to home and keeping the kit packing elves supplied with chewing tobacco and NoDoz until we get all the orders shipped.

I won't be able to make this one either. :(

 

Someone take pics!
