For you analog buffs I'm going let go of either if not both of my reel to reels to finance my next headphone purchase. If anyone is interested let me know.

Pioneer RT-909
Akai 1730 D-SS 4 channel surround deck with some really cool old JVC 4 channel headphones.

For the budget minded I also had a sennheiser HD 590 with a Stefan Arts Equinox cable I never listen to.

Hmmm, I might have to try out HD-590 cable on mine at the meet.  I've always been curious to hear a better quality cable on it as the one it comes with stock is quite thin and flimsy.  I rarely listen to mine though either, I've only kept it on sentimental value as it was my first real headphone I bought from starting to read Head-fi around 2006.

About For Sale items, originally I thought we'd have a "for sale" table but now I think it would be best for the owners to display the gear at their table. This makes it easier for potential buyers to local the owner and for the owner to demo the gear. I suggest that for sale items be labeled as for sale with price included.  If anyone has suggestions or ideas about this let me know.

Sounds to me like a good plan.

Is there any interest in a non-working Harmon-Kardon Citation IV stereo preamp? I got it a long while ago as a restoration project but only recently been able to be honest enough with myself to admit I'm not ever likely to get around to it, since I don't have use for a tubed preamp. It deserves to be in a home that will give it the attention it deserves.

I can bring it if anybody wants to check it out; PM me if you want to see it or want to ask questions first.

That's an excellent idea.

 

And I figured all transactions can be made via paypal gift, on the spot?

 

I think there should also be some type of printed record of who's bringing what, as well as a printed list of what is being sold or traded.  As items are sold and/or traded, we should use a pen and indicate who the new owner is of which item, just to be sure there are no discrepancies or issues regarding missing or stolen gear.

Well, it appears I won't be able to make it to the meet after all. Some weird family death-related event has come up. Sorry if this causes any confusion. My (surely highly anticipated tongue_smile.gif ) offerings* to the meet will need to be removed from the list. I'm not sure if my pair of LCD-2s, my iphone, turntable, or my cmoy amp were ever included in the lists though.

 

*akg k240 DF

*akg k240 M

*JVC HA-RX700 (open mod)

*Beyer DT 770 (80 ohm)

 

This really sucks. I was really looking forward to this. Any chance it could be rescheduled? Or do another one some time soon? I know it's a big production to pack up, unpack, pack up again, and carry around all this gear. I have no idea what it took to set the space up (thanks again fatcat). Would anyone (maybe those who also couldn't make it to this one) be willing to come to Winston for a meet? Maybe in the summer? I could look into finding a space here.

Sorry to hear that RastaDolphin.

 

As to another meet later on, you might want to start a separate thread on one for later in the summer and just see what sort of response you get.

Sorry to you won't make it, but certainly understandable. Your presence will be missed.

 

X2 on starting a Winston Meet thread. Put one out there around march and see what the response is. I'd suspect it would be good, there are quite a few Head-Fiers up your way.

Sure, and you might as well add the magni to the comparison

Agreed. I noticed that the output impedance of the m stage is 5. I suppose this shouldn't make much difference with higher impedance cans but i wonder about lower...and then again, the O2 and magni are under 1. Huh....comparisons comparisons.

Wow...I live in the Charlotte area.

 

I literally just got into all this like 5 days ago. I'm wondering if I should attend...

Cool man, welcome
post #240 of 285

Don't "try". Consider making it a priority to come to the Meet. They are rare happenings, like once every 1-3 years. It is a great opportunity to get to know people in your geographic area with a common hobby/passion. Also, it can really cut down you time with the learning curve in this hobby by asking people questions. They may not always have the "only correct answer" but it is a starting place as is this site. Finally, you will have the opportunity to hear a lot of interesting gear that you read about on this site. This is a rare opportunity.
