Head-fi Austin - January 18 2014 - Page 10

Howdy All!

 

Just joined here a few days ago. I want to say this site is awesome. 

 

I am looking forward to the Austin meetup. 

 

I just purchased some HD 650's after reading about them extensively on here and I am amazed at the sound. I have about 3 other pair of Sennheisers (598, 25, 218) and now I'm loving the 650's too. 

 

I have never had the opportunity to listen to headphone amplifiers, and hope I can listen to a few at the meeting. I have really had my eye on the Bifrost/Lyr setup.

 

Thanks again. 

 

-Mike

Hi Mike. Welcome.   You'll definitely have tons of amps to listen to.  There'll be lots of music there but it's not a bad idea to make a sampler CD of some of you're favorite songs that you know well and can use to audition your phones with when plugged into unfamiliar gear.

Me, too, but mostly jazz and classical.  I will have a few "audiophile" records for sale.

If it helps ease the hit, fwiw my gf is coming with me so that's another $20, she is using my gear.

This is going to be my first meet! I'll bring my HD650 and a couple CDs/LPs. I really just wanna hear some different amps, in particular tubes and good tube hybrids (Woo stuff, Valhalla/Lyr, etc). Everyone says the HD650s need tubes to really sound their best but so far all of my gear has been solid state as quality tube gear is prohibitively expensive. I at least wanna know what I'm missing, haha.

 

I also wanna hear the Grado RS2i... although there isn't one on the list currently :( the RS1i will do I suppose. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna love it and they'll be the next addition to my collection, but I wanna be sure.

 

I'm not sure about signing up for a table... is this a place where I could get rid of some gear? I'm trying to sell my HE-400s and an Aune T1...

 

EDIT: Also, where am I paying by PayPal? I think I missed the link heh...

 

EDIT2: I can also just bring the Aune T1 and HE-400, for sale or not, if anyone would be into that. I also have M50s, SR80i, and an Asgard 2 that probably won't be back from Schiit in time for this weekend.

The link is in the first post (tinyurl link) for signup. The paypal address is listed on that page and you can request a table there. Selling things is perfectly fine! Just leave a page on your table with pricing so you don't have to be tracked down every time someone is interested.

--

To all wanting to pay via paypal, I will only take paypal until midnight tomorrow night (Wednesday night).

Thanks, FYI I'll have signed up twice on that link... the first one can just be discarded. But I just sent the payment. Super excited!

 

EDIT: Also have an ODAC and AMB Gamma2 Full++ that I can bring along if there's interest...

Looks like I am able to make it this weekend. I'll only be bringing records this time so no space is needed for me. I already did the whole google form and paypal link so everything is all set.

Tonight is the last night to PayPal. Cash at the door only after tonight.

I'm not sure if I can go there, so I'll probably have to pay out of pocket as I get to the place

 

Also I'm not packing much, only an SRH840 and my Walkman with the ALO Rx MKII. I just want to try out the gear I couldn't afford lol :p
