Haven't received it yet, but it's supposed to be an extremely revealing headphone from the late '70s. Warm and lush with wonderful imaging, very organic sounding. 

 

Damn, how many vintage 'phones are you going to have come the meet??? Haha wink.gif. Can't wait to hear them considering them being favorably compared to the SA5000.

I would love to come, but I'm afraid that is a considerable distance from where I like (St. Charles)...

I'm sorry to hear that. I've never been to a meet and i'm excited myself, so I can empathize about missing it. Hope you can make to one of them! :(

Awesome! I'm not too familiar with Sony headphones besides the MDR-10s/holy grail. I'm looking forward to hearing what they can do!

Vintage headphones are kind of my thing, lol. Check my profile, I have almost two vintage sets for every modern one.

 

My very first headphone was a vintage KOSS set from the 80's. I got them from a garage sale when I was about 12 years old. Probably has something to do with it tongue.gif

Damn....have to cancel, guys. I'll be getting back from a business trip late on the 20th. I'm really disappointed....was really looking forward to meeting people and hearing new gear.triportsad.gif

I will be attending. I can bring my Oppo BDP-105 and Fostex T50RP with Shure pads otherwise stock. I also can  bring my Audio-GD NFB-12 (2010 model). 

 

I will likely have 3 - 4 others with me but I am not sure if they will bring their gear. 

 

How do we go about "setting up?" Do I need to bring a table? Source material will likely be Fedora MPD  --> USB --> Oppo BDP 105. 

 

I have never attended a Head Fi meet before. I'm pretty excited. gs1000.gif

Hi guys,

I have another item I'll be bringing.

The new HRT microStreamer.

post #262 of 334

Is it too late to sign up? I'm starting a nice little audiophile setup and this seems like a great way to make my stuff look inadequate. I can bring my Grado 225i, an AKG 271 MKII, plus NAD 3022 amp and Dual 1237 TT. If I can, I was going to bring a friend or three, try to get two them into the hobby and one out of getting studio beats.

Hi, I'm darkfireblade25's friend, also a student at MSU. I will bring my DT 770 250 ohm and my HE-400s. Really excited to be there!

also, if I want to bring my own music would an SD card be appropriate? I've never actually been to a meet before.

post #264 of 334
SD card would be good but you may want to bring a few other forms. like something with line out, something with digital out, or at least a USB hard drive.

Personally, I'm bringing a 500GB USB hard drive loaded with all my music. I'll bring an SD card reader for you if you want.

Well, I will definitely not have the Centrance HIFI-M8 for the meet, but I can take a Benchmark DAC-1 USB and a macbook pro with pure music and a nice assortment of tunes. Since I wont have a balanced rig I will take my HD-600s with a Cardas 1/4" plug and also the balanced cable in case someone wants to hear it. Can't wait 'till the day.

post #267 of 334

Just got a pair of airmotiv 4's as they are slightly on sale. I could bring them to them to the meet but I'm not quite sure where i'd set them up without being rude. Coming from an older 2.1 cambridge soundworks(engineer left bose, formed that company) setup and should be a nice bump. Meet is getting closer and closer! I'm pumped up!

post #268 of 334

I need to sell some things so I can get a dedicated amp for my cans... again with the shamelessness: anyone wanna buy something? biggrin.gif

post #269 of 334

Oh by the way guys, my V-MODA M-100 has the paper towl mod installed on it which slightly altars the sound (henceforth why i did it) and also helps with comfort (its original purpose). So mine sounds different then the actual M-100. Does anyone want me to take it out or hear it how it is moded now? I really think this can shines with the mod and prefer it much more then the original. 

post #270 of 334

You should probably leave it in. The mod does squash the pads, and they don't reform after a while, and there is at least one other set coming that is not modded.

 

 

Mine. biggrin.gif
