Built in battery which is said to last about 8 hours. To my ears it was very solid state sounding, but hey, that's me being picky.

 

I suspect that it relates back to the opamp selection (change) during the early stages of its design in the interest of conserving battery power.

Hmmm... I do not know about a bigger ballroom. I found this year room a bit noisy for a careful listening. The open headphones let in too much outside sound to completely ignore the surrounding and when you have 4-5-6 stands in one room it can get too loud sometimes.

OH

 

I completely understand your point.

 

Think of this the other way around: We'd have more real estate, similar to what the fellas do w/ the LA and NYC meets - more akin to CanJam at RMAF.

So you'll have more space between tables/exhibits - allowing for a more conducive environment for open-back cans and such.

 

PLUS: This is a ballroom that is being constructed where the Hilton's Spa used to be (it was third-party owned - and the owners recently retired, so they

want to build it into a ballroom) - so the space is also specifically designed to be a bit away from the traffic!!

 

The two things we had working against us at The Headphonium were the doors always had to be open (and with only 2,000 square feet, we had a helluva

noise-floor) and the actual limitation of space.

 

We may not have to deal with that next year!  I say MAY because I'm still not sure if I'm going to be working on The Headphonium next year.

I LOVE CanJam at RMAF - and I'm on the RMAF team, so I may decide to focus all my efforts there and where I'm moving: The Bay Area.

 

BUT - I wanna do a walk-thru and see what we got!

 

Thanks again to ALL who helped me this year.

I appreciate it more than words can express.
