London Calling...19th October, 2013. - Page 14  

post #196 of 618

I'm in.

 

And I'll stay over if others want to share food again!

 

I'll be buying some more kit before this event but was touched by the ref to the Sonosax.

 

I'm trying out some other portable hi end setups to try and better the Sonosax.  It's a tough bit of kit to beat.

 

Look forward to seeing you all in October.  Thanks Nadeem for your great enthusiasm and organisational skills.

The last rig I listened to at the meet was one of the best-sounding I had ever heard. It was a closed-back Ultrasone headphone used in combo with a the Sonosax SX-DA2 and fed by an iriver player.

This rig had an amazing sound that was very clean and clear with a lovely, perfect tonal balance that I did not find fault with. The deep bass and a slightly warm sound was a delightful experience.

Cheers chaps.

 

I have one thing that someone might be able to help with I hope - we have Russ Poole coming along to share his musical skills with us and he's offered to do a short set as well as a talk on the recording of his songs. To this end, some kind of small PA system would be great. Can anyone help out?

I agree, this was the first thing I listened to with my HD800s and it was the only portable rig that I didn't find too bright. The ultrasones sounded nice too, but I didn't listen too long with them. My only criticism is that it wouldn't fit in a pocket biggrin.gif

Any idea what the Ultrasones were?

Just in case it's unclear, Russ will be doing a short set hopefully around lunchtime, most like likely around 20 mins.

A live music set at a Headfi meet, personally I'm really pleased...smily_headphones1.gifsmily_headphones1.gifsmily_headphones1.gif

What have you updated to then Duncan?  

 

I am hoping to have a pair of those Sony 7520 studio cans (the cans the Z1000's never where) with a custom cable by Whiplash Audio with one of their TWag cables which you can listen to.   

 

p.s. could not wait - got offered a good loyalty deal with contract renewal by my network but they did not have the HTC One so went with the Xperia Z in the end which after a Crapberry is like going from wheel & cart to the Starship Enterprise!

Hi Fortis...

 

I received the LCD2's yesterday (traded the HD800 for them, some may see that as a daft manoeuver, but - never really had much love for the Senns, and knowing that the Audeze' are known to mate well with my amp..............

 

...Makes the FI-BA-SB that I got last week sound not so good now (relatively of course), question I have to ask myself now is, do I live with a compromise, or - do I finally pluck up the courage to get some CIEMs...

 

Hmm...

post #207 of 618
CIEMS are so last year. TOTL universals is the new cool ;-)

Beyerdynamic will be along and will bring the A1 and the new A20 amp or so I have been told.

Well well well! I thought I missed this year's event. Another pops up. I should be able to make it. Looking forward to meet all the veterans and newbies.
