I'd like to host a headphone get together at my downtown LA loft on Sunday. There's room for around 10 listening stations. I have Mad Dogs 3.2, AKG 550s and Phiaton 320 portables and my wife might let us use her Shure 840s. I also have a good sized collection of hires and surround discs (SACD, DVD audio and Blu ray).
I'd really like to hear the new Mad Dog Alphas, AKG K551/545, PSB, NAD, Philips Fidelo, and any other new or interesting headphones. Icing on the cake would be if someone brought the new Centrance HifiM8. Basically I'd like to get together with some fellow SoCal enthusiasts, try out different set ups and share my surround sound music hobby. Anyone interested?
Although I am not sure how many people on Head-Fi are also audiophiles for speakers, the LA OC Audio Society, a very large audiophile user's group, is having their annual holiday gala on Sunday, 12/8 during the day from 11:00am to 3:30pm. So while there are many people in So Cal driving to Buena Park on Sunday, some of us, like me, will be attending the gala.
But, thanks for the generous offer to host a get together. I'd love to take you up on your offer some other time as I also share your interest in surround sound music!
