Yup my Krell. I have a 4 pin XLR to banana plugs adapter. I have some resistors to increase the S/N and have more volume to play with.

 

Seems like you guys only use 2x 3pin XLRs so we might need an adapter to 4pin to get any action.

Hey I will be there! I live in college/SDSU area so making a trip to Coronado is easy :] I will be bringing my Schiit stack and modded DT880s

I can't wait to try out some Summit-fi equipment finally!!!

I will need a decent amount of space because I'm running a desktop rig though hopefully this can be accomodated

That would be awesome!

 

How about bringing as many as you can carry so we can buy them from you. ;-)

 

I have not heard back from anyone at Schiit to see if anyone from the company is coming to the meet or not, but it sounds like between LFF and whatever Mr. Speakers brings, we should have a fair amount if Schiit to hear.

Great news!!

 

I just got word from Brannan at Noble Audio that he will be bringing universal versions of their ENTIRE line for demo at the meet.

 

This is the first time anywhere, that I know of, that you can hear universal versions of their CIEM's including a universal version of the Kaiser 10's! That's 10 drivers per side...

 

So, if you are considering CIEM's, this will be a great chance to actually hear them before you buy.

 

Also, if you have a particular source you want to test, bring it. I believe Brannan will have at least an AK120 as a source.

 

Again, if you do plan on coming to the meet, please RSVP in this thread.

 

Thanks.

Man, this is so tempting.  Went to CanJam over the weekend, and I haven't been to a meet other than that.  I could get a round-trip ticket DEN-SAN for $200, and I'm off those days.  I'm just not sure about taking leave right now.  I'd love to hear the Noble stuff, though.  I'll have to think about this (but not for very long).  I'd also have to find a place to stay and figure out transportation.

OK, I resolved my potential schedule conflict, so I'm good to go.

 

Will bring all or a subset of the following:

 

Lynx Hilo

Resonessence Concero/Head-Amp Gilmore Lite (possibly Concero HP if I have it by then)

Resonessence Herus (possibly driven by iPad via CCK)

iPod Touch/Fostex HP-P1

 

Sennheiser HD 800 (w/SE and balanced Cardas cables)

Fostex TH 600

And someone PM me to remind me too. It's busy season for me at work so I tend to forget things.

Can you bring your Abyss headphones? (I  didn't know you owned a pair) I will have a Cavalli LAu to pair with them...Or we can try them with the Vali and compare to the LAu. :D

That's great news!

 

I have updated the first post with your list of gear. Thanks!

Sweet! I'm really interested in the HD800 and Fostex TH900 right now. From what I hear the TH600 is similar to the TH900, so I'd be very interested to try it out.

 

 

Does anyone have any requests from me other than the HD650's? If no one has a vested interest in the K550's or DT770-80's I think I'll bring the Pro 900's, since they have their own carry case.

Glad to see that I might be able to audition a set of balanced HD-800's with my rig.

I have 3 pin XLR jacks.  Hope there's a set that'll fit.

I will be bringing a pair of HD800's with a pair of balanced cables with two 3 pin XLR's (and a cable with a single ended 3.5mm jack)

 

I think someone else might be bringing balanced cables too.

cool

I have an XLR to 1/4" socket adapter that will accommodate standard cans.

Yes. LOL, I actually just ordered them. I should be getting them sometime next week, well in time for the meet.
