Lubeck-Heerlen is a 7 hour train ride according to Google maps. For me it's about a third of that, and I still think it's way too far. tongue.gif

I guess I would tackle this odyssey if the venue doesn't change to a place that is a bit more north :/

It would be fun to have a really benelux meeting with guys and girls coming from all countries around us biggrin.gif

I for sure will come..my new headphone will be delivered tomorrow i saw just now...so 1 part of my rig is in...my amp is still being built..hope to have it in february..as its being completely handbuilt to the specs to drive a he6 at its best..but the builder keeps on having new ideas to improve the amp while he is building it..he said its his petproject..so its sort of his hobbyproject...and as that guy is crazy with his innovative ideas (he made a dual monoblock endamps in two lady PUMPS!.only because he wanted to.....so i hope i wont get an amp powered by a huge pacemaker cooled by synthetic blood...but never say never.. biggrin.gif. Nevertheless i need some time to burn it in as its totally opamp based!

So i hope the meet is after march wink.gif

I'm hoping you will ever get to see your amp and that he doesn't run away with your money, it's been really long already :frown:

This kind of working is his way...i talked to other custommade BC projects owners..and they all confirmed that if ur lucky to be in his favor with ur project...then u will get something special..without paying extra but it could take a while before getting it..as he likes to try new things and implement new ideas on the fly.....BUT they also said not to be pushy..but let him do his thing...One told me he almost cancelled his project because he (new owner amp) was starting to get a bit demanding for delivery...So i let him...he keeps me perfectly informed reguralery with every change or updates.. And he has a very good name..so i trust all will go fine...and a month extra wont kill me after waiting for 6 months already.

But i understand ur fear wink.gif

Just a preview what i will be bringing with me biggrin.gif

Ps..dont forget..the amp is still being built..this was first 'in proces' pic i got...the blue case is the main amp..the grey case is the case for the external powersupply...there was no room anymore for it and it is better for a lower noise floor. First pic is my new headphone..the last headphone pic is included because of my dual mono balanced custommmade cable on the pic. wink.gif

EDIT: maybe Harald (soundconsult) wants to join us again with some of his excellent products as he did last time...and especially now there are new audezes out and that new hifiman's are coming also..would be perfect to try them out then..soooooo Harald ur welcome! Also because uR a nice guy ofcourse wink.gif would love to talk to u again..and i did promise him to let him listen to my new amp and my new code-x.

My new referencesounds Code-X HE-5 #15

First in process pic of my new amp



Sexy connectors

Hifimanrookie,

 

That's a pretty serious setup for your HE-6! It certainly deserves it, from what I hear.

 

Getting the soundconsult people in on this would be amazing. I've been curious about them since the last meet, which looked very well-organized, and I too would love to explore the Hifiman and Audeze ecosystems.

 

So.... Does anyone have a location? :D

 

Edit: Also, my SR-007 Mk1 came in. It's been a dream for years to get one and I'm supremely happy with it.

decided not to get a HE6 in an impulsive act last month, but to get one of the few very rare (Original) Code-X' ses..just search on headfi for the Code-X appreciation thread for more info.
Would love to hear ur sr007... As Next phone i will be getting will probably be the sr007 (MK something) or the sr009(MK something)
I will try to contact harald from soundconsult to see if they are interested again in attending wink.gif

Whoa, so that's a heavily modified HE-5 if I understand correctly. That's very interesting.

 

The SR-007 has three main versions: MK1 (considered the best), MK2 and MK2.5. The latter two had slight alterations made to them that make them more aggressive and a bit less linear. The MK2.5 also takes a few design bits from the SR-009.

 

The SR-009 has had a tiny little revision I believe, but nothing serious. The opinions about the SR-007 MK1 and SR-009 are varied, but they are considered two out of the three best Stax units (the original Omega being the last of the big three).

 

If anyone can bring an 009, or even more unlikely an original Omega, that would be astonishing. Those two are $5K or so, and the Omega is absolutely ridiculous in rarity and will be rising in value indefinitely.

 

I guess if we want the best headphones in the world represented, we'd need an R10, an HD800, and an Orpheus.I know there's one or several R10's in the Netherlands, but no idea on an Orpheus. HD800 is fairly easy, of course.
