DC/VA/MD 2013 Meet Interest Check! *Moved to Official Thread!* - Page 3

post #31 of 76

Hoping this is on a Saturday after the 4th of May, that's the only time I can reliably get away from campus :P  damn CS/IT major.....  I take it we aren't going to be able to settle on a date until the end of February when we book the place?

PM vvs_75 and ask what date he's thinking. Then, report back here!

What I can bring:

V-Moda M-100

Grado SR60i

Schiit Magni

Stoner Acoustics UD100

Laptop

A stack of CDs

 

Yes, not much. I purged my gear :P Which was a bad move, really starting to miss my old stuff :( 

 

Out of curiosity, can you still get the stoner acoustics UD100? I am very interested in getting one for a project of mine, but I can't find them anywhere.

The Magni is a pretty solid, neutral amp with more power than the 500's need (or just the right amount according to the specs). I don't really think about the Magni as good or bad, but reasonably transparent for the price. Offers plenty of power when I need it for (for example) the classical stuff that's recorded at low signal level but pops up into the high volume range now and again. But for low-dynamic range rock/pop stuff, if you don't listen too loud, you can actually get away with the 500s straight out of an iPhone; it certainly isn't ideal, but doable, so the 500s, in my experience don't demand a high-end or particularly high-power amp excepting that you might like a more non-neutral tonal flavor that a higher-end amp could offer.

 

BTW- When I a/b'd the 650s and 500s at the last meet, I found them almost jarringly different (not better/worse, just very different). I'd be interested to see what you make of the comparison.

Haha, mine just came in the mail a few days ago (took three weeks to get to the states) so yes, you can get them by emailing the guy. It doesn't play well with the Magni :( output is too high. I really don't want to go with attenuators, so, actually, would you like to buy mine? :P It's virtually mint, I used it twice. No damage, and it will come in much less than three weeks ^_^ It's a shame it's not working out for me, when I crank everything down to where it only makes my ears bleed slightly, it sound really clean.

I would not have an issue with that what so ever. I am building a CD player for my mom by using an old PC so I need a speaker amp and a dac.

 

How much are you looking to get for it?

Just made an unofficial gear list in the first post. After compiling it, it makes me think that Da5ld is a troll rolleyes.gif

If we knew when this head-fi meet was going to be I could just give you the money. It isn't like this CD player is going to get done overnight anyways.

Nope, not a troll. But I do intend on coming to the meet so I'll keep watching this thread. I did lurk for quite some time on this forum, and now I'm kind of broke because of it. :-)
