Welcome, Fester. This will be my first meet too. Hopefully, the hazing won't be too severe.

 
I had the s4 and unfortunately misplaced them, I really enjoyed them, they had the best bass extension I've heard on an iem. I have a new pack of monster super tips I'll bring along to try out some new iems and hand out if others need be.

Well then, I might bring a couple more IEMs than I'd originally planned. We'll see.

I'll bring my Yamaha EPH-100 IEM's if you want to try them out. I'll also bring my Fischer Audio Eterna's to sell/trade if anyone fancies them :)

 

I always like trying stuff out. I sort of jumped off the deep end for a portable setup, have Heir 4.As on the way and will probably end up with a Leckerton UHA-6S Mk2. But still interested in hearing stuff, it'll give me a good basis to compare the 4.As to when they finally get here.

We can compare 4.As and Leckerton UHA-6es...

Unfortunately, I'm not going to have either by the 20th I suspect (ear impressions just got to China a week ago and the UHA-6 is out of stock until the end of January).

In that case maybe you'll get a preview of what you put your money on. biggrin.gif

Indeed, that'll be nice. And if someone's got a 1/8" to 1/4" adapter I can even see what the UHA-6S can do (if anything) with the LCD-2s. Honestly I expect to keep separate desktop and portable setups, but if it does happen to work for everything that'd be even better.

I've got an adapter somewhere around here. I'll throw it in the box.

This meet will decide my next purchase. I've got it narrowed down

I've been meaning to build an adaptor, I'll try to get one done this weekend. Maybe make an RSA -> 4-pin XLR while I'm at it.

 

My UHA-6S is the original version, it's got plenty of grunt for the LCD headphones, those phones aren't too demanding. The newer version of the amp has more juice, too, so if you're happy with what you hear at the meet, you'll be fine.

Do we have a need for a phono preamp with the turntables that will be there? If so, I can bring along my RSA F117 NightHawk.

 

Also, do I need to bring the CARY 306SACD or are we good without it?

Good to know; what opamps do you have in it?

 

I'm thinking if it sounds similar to my current Schiit stack at my normal listening levels then I'll probably get one and use it with all my cans (at least until I inevitably end up with a Mjolnir and Gungnir or something).

I have a couple 1/8 to 1/4 adapters i can throw in the bag. Well with the sudden interest in IEM's you can add my Vsonic GR04 Pro Flagship Edition to the list. I'm welcome to sell/ trade. I like the sound, but i swear my ear canals are just hell bent on rejecting every IEM in the world,so if anyone is interested.... Most of the tips have been tried for fit then just replaced in the baggie.

 

Oh and i have and 11ft (i think) long plain old auxiliary cord. Nothing fancy just a big, thick, boring monoprice 1/8 to 1/8 male-male cord. I can bring it along if it might find some use.

 

And on yet another side note, I have a second symetrix 304 that has a slight static problem. I can bring it if anyone wants to buy it for parts/repair. The working one i have is pretty nice...from what little experience i have. 4 outputs, up to 25 gain with infinite pot for it. mono/stereo button. I couldn't tell you whats wrong with it but hey...

 

...and this is my first meet as well

I've still (after 2 years) got the stock 8610 in it, though there are a half dozen more waiting their turn.

Ah cool, it's really between that and the 209 for me, so will definitely be useful.

All I have preamp-wise is a bottom-of-the-barrel Behringer. I'll bring it, if for nothing more than to evaluate my need to upgrade in comparison to yours.
