Plugging your walkman into the "big-boy" amps as a source may be too inconvenient. But most everyone will allow you to plug in your headphones. Key is just to ask. People are pretty chill and friendly.

 

Since there are a lot of newer folks showing up, I might reiterate the following:

 

The standard procedure is to turn down the volume pot, remove current headphone jack, plug in your headphones, and then turn up the volume. Basically always turn down volume before switching headphones.

 

Also make sure the headphones are plugged in properly (and everything else is working) while turning up the volume. One year, there was one guy who plugged in his headphone into the wrong amp, and kept turning up the volume on one of my headphones which was the one actually plugged in. A few guys noted this and screamed at him to stop.

Thanks! as most of my stuff is pretty cheap, im looking to try out some of the portable amps and some of the higher end setups that i can dream about that night! i just love music and headphones so im amped to check all this out! as for the "big boy" amp statement...i assume you mean its just not worth it to use my little mp3 player on the bigger setups? im gonna feel pretty lame bringing my mdr vx100's and my phillips she3580 iems...but at least ill get to see if anything makes a difference!

Well, I think part of it is that it's a pain to unplug / plug in sources while other folks are waiting. The TOTL rigs tend to be popular. Don't worry about what you bring. I'm bringing stuff on behalf of Cavalli Audio, otherwise I would have walked in with nothing (or my Beats) and just enjoyed being in fancy toy store of sorts. If you are super curious, I'll let you plug in your mp3 player in the amp I'm bringing.

We like to bring a Pure i20 dock so iPhone/iPod users can listen to their own source material on our rigs. Much easier and higher quality than a Walkman...

Maybe easier, But not everyone owns a ipod or iphone? And sound quality should be similar i would say ! Guess we will see! Kinda seems like a shot at my walkman comments?

So I guess I will be taking fatman place at the show.  I appreciate him giving me his tickets.  Now only to decide which gears to bring with me?  HD800 or LCD2

Yeah I think I'm going to bring the Wadia dock, or perhaps the Algo Solo for that.

I got this killer YBA ipod/iPhone dock but the damn thing only has USB and analog out

(no coax)

 

My Wadia dock is the older model (doesn't support iPhone).

Just bring the Cypher Labs Algo Solo you think??

 

and I regret not getting to hear your cans at The Headphonium (and I should've had

you there at your own table - I'm so sorry about that).  I hear amazing things and

I'm pumped to hear them on the ALO Studio Six! I'm bringin' that badboy and maybe

my E.A.R HP4 (my current reference)
