9th Calgary Headfi Meet! Sept 8 2013 - Page 6  

post #76 of 125

Hey everyone - I can't believe I live across the street from this meet; the hi-fi stars have aligned.

Disclaimer: Like a bunch of you, I guess, I'm also new to higher-end headphone audio. I have a lot of music on my Mac Air, but all of it is MP3 quality and I have no DAC. Should I bother bringing it?
Also, I've been getting back into CDs but my player is garbage. Will there be something to play the cds?

Thank you,

Peter

I'm curious as well if anyone is interested in "lower end" gear, source etc.  Wondering if it makes sense to bring my stuff:

 

Sources:

Macbook without any HD files - about 50% CD Rip AIFF and 50% 320k MP3

iPod Video and iPod Classic

 

DACs:

Schiit Bifrost optical only (harder to bring as it is set up in my main stereo right now)

ODAC

 

Amp:

RSA Mustang

 

Headphones:

Grado SR60i (some mods)

Skull Candy Aviators

 

iems:

Cardas 5813

B&W C5

Hi Guys,

 

Whatever you can bring is great! part of this hobby is trying out different components, discovring new music and meeting new people who enjoy music.

 

Cheers,

Al

Fury are you a student at U of C? If you are I might have seen you with the Grados on your head, nothing catches my eye on campus like a nice set of cans!

post #82 of 125
I left UC( as student) 8 years ago,
I do go back for some visit sometime,
Dont believe it was me lol.

If you seen someone have a grado in futureshop, it could be me.

As i did wear a pair of RS1i to futureshop and best buy several times last year.
post #83 of 125

haha nevermind then, I did see someone having a large pair of grados

(I dont know grado models) and they were silver too just thinking if could be you.

Ive seen a person with m50's, some westones ,shure's , porta pro's

I have an eye for nice headphones everywhere I go haha

post #84 of 125

lol there are only two "SIlver " Grado

 

 one is 325is ( it is not that BIG)

 

another one is a PS1000 which is BIG!

 

 

you have any friends who may want to join in?

post #85 of 125

Haha well there is a PS1000 in the headphone list perhaps its that person? My uncle owns Sr80i's and the ones I saw were definitely large in comparison.

 

I have one that's into headphones and also a headfi member but has something related to school that's keeping him from coming on sunday,

we have a good list of headphones in the list, ones I dream of hearing myself
