At first I was all like:  I want Sieveking, now Sieveking looks boring as hell.

Updated gear list, added DNA Sonett 2 and *maybe* the Stratus. Donald of Donald North Audio (DNA) has been kind enough to lend me the DNA Sonett 2 for the meet. If a demo Stratus is available, he will send that as well, will confirm later.

These are really hi-fi amps up there with Eddie Current, and of the like, and are VERY well regarded by many. Brace yourselves my friends.

It may be a long shot but I may have my new full sized headphones by the time of the meet.

Okay 4 days, and still no change on the polls. Can I just remove it and go for the majority date?

JVC DX1000's. I love the Japanese approach to music reproduction. The PF's and TU-05 have really given me so much musical enjoyment. I think I am done with "HiFi"!

Go ahead, I don't think much is going to change anyways. Let out a mass PM to all Vancouverites and maybe even Seattle people at previous Seattle meet threads.

Cool looking forward to listening to your unique gear, Ian. I'm guessing you'll be over at the quiet listening room? :) I think anyone with open back gear that wants to set up a table to have people listen should come to the quiet room. I'll come up with the rules soon. I'll probably be in the quiet room the whole time since I have to guard my desktop rig and DNA stuff.

Wow - $800 for the DX1000's... I would be done as well! And if not because they sound so great, then because my wallet would be completely empty LOL!

 

Then again, I have been sucked in lately by various ATH phones, and so far I am loving the Japanese approach (although each of the headphones has cost considerably less than $800).

Will do master troll's job for him. i.e.

 

Shame the TH900s weren't considered...at least I would think so.

Esoteria like the CK100PRO or the F111 is more to my taste :P

Where have you seen them for $800?? The cheapest so far is $888. When I first looked the cheapest I could find was $1250!

You probably felt a bit dirty doing his job. Sorry about that!

 

But luckily, at this point in my audiophile-headfi-addiction, I am still immune to the power of the magical "DO IT" gif when it comes to $800 headphones. Having said that, the thought did enter my mind the other day that $600 for the HE-500's might be something that might be okay down the road. I quickly (as quickly as I could) purged that thought from my mind lol.

 

For now, I am going to be blissfully happy with my GR07BE's, AD900X's and WS99'S  t h a n k   y o u ! ! !

Are you going to bring the stratus to the seattle meet too?
