LOL, that's okay.  He brought some stuff (those Ferrari cans) that didn't belong to him so he had to make sure nothing happened to them.  I totally understand.  Outside of hearing a few things that I REALLY want to hear, I'm generally chill with just hanging out.  In fact, I think a large part of my time at the upcoming LA meet will be working the registration desk and doing security and what not.

Yeah, the price is a bit steep on that.  But the way Mike (Headfonia) talks about it, one would think it's the second coming.

The W1000X is almost the same... though with bigger soundstage and slightly cleaner treble.

 

I kinda liked it, the ES10 I mean.  Not for everything all the time, but it definitely sounds like it's ready to partay.  Someone suggested the JVC FXD80 to me if I wanted to get the same signature in an IEM.  Any thoughts on that?

Well, that is... if we get enough people wanting to meet up. We are missing at least 60 heads.

 

We still got a little time.  Let's try to get the word out!

We seriously need to name this combination the "aamefford rig".  It's famous.  biggrin.gif  Did you notice how many people were taking pictures of other people listening to it last time?

 


 

BTW, is it just me, or is this thread pretty much dominated by the Room 6 Crew?  I think we all had a pretty good time because we were a little more casual than some of the other rooms.  Either that or the unusually large concentration of O2s chilled everyone out.  We need to get HiFiGuy528, oblique and some honorary Room 6 Crew Members up in here.  LiuTim would be good.  So would SanJoseCanJunkie.  Also, there was a guy that showed up a little later in the afternoon and hung out for a while.  I think that might have been kramer5150... does anyone know for sure?

I spoke with HifiGuy528 and asked for his support as well. Hopefully Mike can chime in here as well.

Nope.  I waited on his penguin butt all day.  Nothin'.  Sad for me as I wanted to see his work - especially some of his mods - up close.  Oh well... maybe he can come this time?

I was out of the room most of the time my own rig got the heavy check out.  I'm glad it did - as I'm glad some folks got to listen to it, and to the Mad Dogs.  This will be a fun meet - we need to get the word out.

It was the Mad Dogs w/Alpha Pads I think.  Dan only had two stations open, and of course everyone wanted to hear them.  Then it became known that someone in Room 6 had a pair.  Cue the inevitable stampede.

Yup, Mad Dogs with Alpha Pads, version 3.0 per Dan's April Newsletter.  He is now to version 3.2.  My current pair is upgraded to either 3.1 or 3.2, not sure, and are a prototype of the new balanced option.  The connector and cable are a bit more primitive on mine.  I think we are straying off topic here, though.

I'm really a midrange-head. So done with articulated bass and detailed treble. L3000.gif

 

Anyway, while I'd prefer the Portaphile 627 to all portable amps I have had the pleasure of listening to, I wouldn't consider it the second coming. But hey, it's still my top pick if I had the cash.

 

About the JVC FXD80, I don't know, to be honest. I haven't heard that IEM, or any IEM for a looooong time.

Yeah, I know what you mean.  BTW, just so you know the breadth and depth of my indecision, I'm now interested in an X5, a DX50, and a Nova N1 as well.  I have no shame.

Gotcha, though I think you might change your mind after hearing Wolfetan's Heir.
