Hi i have stupid question here:

Wondering about music source. Will be there "anything" where i can hook-up my usb, cd or mp3 player?

I know we all bring DAC`s, AMP`s and headphones. But play (your own) music from laptop or sansa clip+ and TEST headphones is kind`a crime (without dac).

Anyone thought about that?

I will be testing headphones with my own music from my own source, at least that's my plan.

Galaxy S3 -> ODAC -> O2

I will also burn a CD with my own tracks, just in case I may need it.

 

I still need to decide what tracks I am going to use...

The most common meet set up is laptop > DAC > amp > cans, at least for the headphone rigs. The thing with meets is it's more about socialising with other enthusiasts and listening to their setups, hearing the same headphone being used at the end of different component chains etc, rather than it being some mix'n'match free for all, at least with desktop-fi.

 

For the portable/IEM crowd, there's usually a table where stuff ends up collecting and things get passed about. Testing kit seriously is a bit pointless anyway since a) it's too loud to listen critically b) you always get sidetracked waffling about gear/music to people or forget to try something out you wanted to. It's a chance to get a feel for stuff you haven't heard, hear things you can't afford(!) and most importantly, make some new friends and catch up with people you haven't seen.

 

Let's just hope it warms up a bit in the next 4 weeks!

I am looking forward to hearing some 'phones and I am very happy for anyone who wants to listen to any of my kit. I have some Comply tips that may be useful to people who want to listern to unfamiliar IEM's. However, I am not sure about just leaving my stuff on a table. I am suprised to find that I feel that my stuff is quite personal as it is only ever me that uses it. More pragmatically I would be gutted if something got scratched. I am a total tart when it comes to my gear.

Ha ha, I don't think you're the only one Kris. 

 

Can't remember if I mentioned what I'm bringing with me, but if not it's;

 

Astell & Kern AK100

Heir audio Rendition 1 amp

Sennheiser HD 650 headphones

Heir audio Tzar 350 IEMS

Holy Crap...

 

How did I miss this thread?

 

I would totally love to go along!!

 

Fingers crossed that waiting list will go down a bit, nearer to the time :)

I guess i will be OK amongst fellow neurotic searchers after perfection! I would love to see/hear your Astell & Kern. If the Tzars are universal a listen to them would be great too.

Chaps, I'm trying to see if we can get a bigger room in the hotel, if I'm successful, I will let you all know. Might take a few days as my contact at Sennheiser is off until the 8th. Sitting in Germany at the moment and back tomorrow evening...
