Official Los Angeles Regional Summer Meet - Saturday, July 20, 2013 Warner Center Marriott,... - Page 15  

post #211 of 665

I'll say I'm a tentative IN at this point.  Hopefully nothing will come up to derail that in the intervening months!

Those are voltage regulators.

There are two 5V  for the 300B's and a 6.3V for the 6N6P.

Here is the build thread

 

I hope it will be ready and worthy of bringing to the show.

 

Ah I see.  I hope it's ready too, would be nice to have a sizable DIY presence at the meet... and everyone counts!  smile.gif

Hey this'll be cool!  Wonder how the Asgard 2 tames the brightness.  What ohmage?

 


 

Man, this meet is gonna be so good it's giving me a hard on.  biggrin.gif

Here's a little something new from  the DIY contingent.  You  all should be able to guess  what this is built for.  Even if you're a complete electronics ignoramus come look us up. You might be surprised at what you hear and there's lots of help available if you're interested in creating something of your own!

My DT880s have never sounded warmer. Asgard 2 is definitely a warm sounding headphone amp but doesn't sacrifice detail that the DT880s are known for. Bass impact is much more impressive, while not quite basshead quantity, the quality of bass is very noticeable.

 

I have 250ohm DT880s. I love them despite the myth that the 600ohm are better which isn't true at all.

Curious, as i live across the street, and since it will be my first meet i have a couple questions? 

 

Is this a meet where i maybe bring a portable source and get to try out all of these wonderful products? 

As a spectator, do i bring nothing ? lol 

Excited to go to a audiophile meet ! i lovve high quality sounds but usually never have the pocketbook to satisfy it

Hey, I had a 32-Ohm, which is supposed to be the worst of the bunch.  Didn't keep me from smiling when I listened to it.

They you must come!  We've got people coming down from SF - and flying in from all over the country for this.  It would be a SHAME if you missed it.  smile.gif

YES.  Bring your source, and maybe a range of interconnects, and you'll get to try out all kinds of headphones.  If your source has a line out, you're definitely going to want to try some amps as well.  Basically, BYOM (bring your own music) and then mind = blown.  AND you'll get to meet and talk to people who UNDERSTAND exactly why all of this is important to you.

Well, if you've got something to share, definitely bring that as well.  Take a look at the first post when you get a chance, to see what everyone else is bringing.  If you've got something that isn't on the list, by all means bring it and share it.  smile.gif

That's one of the best parts of a meet.  The possibility of sampling gear ahead of time will help you make good purchases and avoid bad purchases (i.e. stuff that you don't like).

Hey all,

 

As someone who will be attending, I have 2 ideas to liven up the meet.

 

DJ spinning tunes whose signals are cabled to anyone who wants the signal. Anyone who is tapped in would be listening to the same thing, like a silent disco. People would take turns spinning whatever they wanted. Alternatively, we could have different genres segregated with different DJs and different signals to tap into.

 

Segregated BYOB booze room (with ID check) supplied with brandy snifters, tumblers, a fridge/cooler with ice, low tables, plush couches and shared signal ports.

 

Anyone else like this idea? If so, can we actually make this happen?

To my knowledge, there are at LEAST three DJs attending the meet, so this might actually he possible.  smile.gif  Depends on whether they feel like spinning that day though.

The degree to which I like this depends greatly upon (a) who is paying for said booze; and (b) who get's stuck with serving bouncer duty.
