Nope, stock.  All my stuff is stock. I haven't really gotten into the modding game.  (Yet.)

 

Neither have I.  It sounds fascinating, but my gear looks at me as if to say "don't you love me anymore?"

Hey, traveling light is a good way to go these days... as long you got your gear and your wits about you.

BUT, you only get a cool name badge if you respond early.  If you're just gonna show up on the day of without warning, Ima slap a "Hello, my name is..." on your forehead.

I'm still debating what I want to bring down to the meet.  The full haul would be the Burson Soloist, Bottlehead Crack+Speedball, HRT Musicstreamer II and II+, Sennheiser HD650, Beyerdynamic DT880-600, Beyerdynamic DT770-80 and Denon AH-D2000 ... but I may leave some of that back.

Wow you have a Bottlehead Crack and Burson Soloist :O I really want to come test out my DT880s and compare between them and my Schiit Asgard 2 + Bifrost stack. I've heard the Bottlehead Crack is the tube amp to get for Beyers and Sennheisers.

And I want to hear the DT880-250 as opposed to my DT880-600 and compare the HRT Musicstreamer II+ with the Schiit Bifrost... so it sounds like we can have a little gear party going.

Ok. Call me a noob, but what does one do at one of these meets?

Do you bring your own cans, and plug into as many amps as you can stand?

Or do you hope that someone will provide cans for you to drool on?

And do you recommend wearing protection?

Do you bring checkbooks? Credit cards?

Or do you leave your wallet at home, in the (perhaps false) hope that doing so will prevent you from dropping cubic dollars?

Do you bring a glass in case you find the hidden bottle of whisky?

Or do you folks call it whiskey?

Do you watch video's of funny cats while listening to music?

Do you speak in Gaelic and think up funny names for amplifiers?

Do you have a race to see who is fastest at building a Bottlehead Crack before the meet ends?

Are there recliners?

And how about cigars? To go with the whisky, of course?

Can I bring my own whisky? Rye?

 

Thank you kindly for your thoughts.

Likewise I'd love to hear the Bottlehead Crack paired up with the Bifrost as well. I'm about to get my DT880s back from BTG audio in a week or so. I had a dual entry cable modification(hard wired) with 8 strand SPC 99.997% OFC and a Furutech 1/4'' jack mostly for aesthetics but I'm sure I will notice a change in the overall sound.

 

This is going to be a very exciting meet! I will for sure be there, I recently had a debate in my mind whether I should see Atmosphere and Slightly Stoopid July 20th in San Diego or travel up to LA. I am not going to miss out this opportunity though because head-fi meets don't usually land in San Diego.

I haven't checked head-fi in a while! Good thing I did because I enjoyed last year's Hollywood meet and would love to attend this one as well. Count me in! :)

Thank you kindly for your thoughts.

Just meeting and chatting with a group people that share similar interests is a valid enough reason to come, right?

My DIY is awaiting replacement 300B's  When those arrive it's make or break.

 

Thus, it'll be either A or A&B

A) Schiit Lyr, Schiit Bifrost SPDIF/ Toslink (uber), LCD2 Rev2's

MacBook Pro retina.

 

B) Christiansen DG 300B, Schiit Bifrost SPDIF / Toslink, LCD2 Rev1's

Mac Mini control via "Remote" app.

 

A question:

I'd like for folks to plug in their own source but I only have SPDIF, and unless someone is walking around with a Mac that won't be useful.

Is it worth it for me to order the USB option from Schiit?

Stated another way, will folks be walking around with USB source music?

post #267 of 665

Speaking of Single-malt glasses.  I'm thinking I might etch a small batch of glasses with a headphone image to sell at the meet.  Anyone interested?  

I'll post a pic once I get a prototype done bigsmile_face.gif

***I have no idea if what I'm asking even matters, so that's why I'm mentioning it.

 

Are there any permits/licenses needed to do that at the meet? (not that any form of authority is actually going to check up on the meet)

Well I am going to be walking around with a MacBook Pro and as I have never used it with the optical out I am interested in hearing it that way. USB seems to be the norm these days, but I would say the buying the upgrade card just for the meet while being extremely nice of you is maybe overkill!

I have an extra USB to SPDIF converter I would be happy to loan you, but users might have to install drivers to make it work. Let me know if you want me to bring it...
