I was talking to a guy in headphones. He kept bringing up SRH840, which I'd already tried and like, till I finally asked him what his favorite is (DT770). That's when he explained that he's under orders to push Shures.

Do you think a store like Guitar Center carries any high end Shures?

well then they are only pushing at the retail level.  they are usually absent from most, if not all, enthusiasts events.  I've never seen them at an event since I joined.

I didn't see any when I went to the Lombard and Arlington Heights stores in September and October. They generally don't even sell mid-priced models (e.g., they sell DT770 not DT880.

I'm beginning to think it's an oversight as opposed to a snub. If we inform them, maybe they'll show in June.

we always inform them, and they never come.  I don't think they really snub the community, I just don't think they are very interested in it.  I have yet to hear anything from them that is worth a lot of hype anyway.

Keith is right on as I have tried contacting them several years in a row and either get no response or a "No".  I have heard they don't spend much time on the consumer market but focus on the pro-market.  With the introduction of products like the SE846, you need to market it if you want someone to drop $999 on an universal fit IEM.

That's all the more surprising and foolish. Sorry to hear that. It's also strange considering that they've always had someone knowledgeable call me back when I've had questions about their older models.

not a lack of knowledge or customer support.  its just not where their priorities are.  its a huge company.  on par with sennheiser.

+1 I was just complaining in another thread that I wish there was a way to test a lot of these AMP's and DAC's that people are discussing(odac and Schiit). I thought for sure that had to be a meet up in the Chicago area.  Looking forward to it!

 

My co-workers are excited too totally worth the road trip from DeKalb.

Lots of us are willing and open to hosting visitors to audition our gear. I know I met Fraggler/Justin under the circumstance of needing DIY help. If anything on my sig appeals to you or your coworkers, I wouldn't mind hosting a mini-meet dinner for you and your pals! That goes for anyone who can get to Hyde Park reliably, too!

A tentative yes from me.  Alas this is my daughter's birthday...  But she's a high schooler so not a huge dilemma.

Bring her with you to help out.  Schools out so maybe you can take a little time and enjoy Chicago before and after the meet.

I'll be there. All I have to contribute are a pair of Denon AH-D7100's.

Looks like I'll be done constructing both of my setups by then...Fraggler and I got up to some mischief on Sunday (meaning mostly Fraggler and me talking about random head-fi stuff). Here's a lil preview...
