The trip to Bottle Head Headquarter really worth the time and drive. Thanks for Dr. B 's hostility and kindness. Dr. B 's setups are all about music, organic and natural. The technical aspect of our meet is getting better each time. Of course the great beer right next door, I really mean at next door!!
The prototype "Mainline" headphone amp had great synergy with HD800,and also worked well with LCD-2, which is a rare found for an amp to drive both headphones well. This amp let me have second look/opinion about HD800 that I never liked before.
Thanks for KingStyle's effort to bring all his gears to the meet, a full car load, it was a lot of work to setup and pack away. The highlights of meet are:
DIY Blue Hawaiian and headphones to go with it.
Bottle Head prototype Mainline tube headphone amp
Many LCD-2s and HD800 in different version and cables
Stax 007 V1.
Cavalli Liquid Fire Amp
Hi-Fi Man ? (I did not have time to check them out)
Eddie Current BA with KR and ECC35 tubes
Eddie Current Electra
Eddie Current Zana Deux
The meet was in very small group. Everyone had time to sit done and listen.
