Dallas, TX - Sunday, September 29th, 2013 - "Big Tex Wears Headphones Too" meetup - Page 12

Speaking of speaker taps, I need to invest in some good banana plugs. Have any recommendations/extras Morbid? I only need 8.
post #167 of 227
I use bare wire atm so no pluggy bits to speak of at my place.

Also...KUZMA HAS LANDED (at the shop). I'll be unboxing it for literally the first time the day of the meet. If anyone with TT setup tools and stuff could bring 'em and help me it'd be much appreciated.

This will be my first time in a meet, but I might come on Sunday. :)

 

Can't bring my entire home gear though, so it's just my paltry portable setup. :(

You know, this sounds really exciting - I have ben following the thread and would love to demo (most) of the equipment everyone is bringing. It sounds like an excellent time and I would be extremely stoked except for one thing: NFL. That is my only sports vice - I don't watch NBA, NBL, NHL, anything NCAA - you get the gist. I just love the NFL and, unfortunately, the Cowboys are my favorite team. Now, the 'Pokes don't play until 3:30 and I can record the early game, if it is a good match-up. Now, fellow Head-Fi'ers - here is my dilemma: I have equipment I would like to share and some (lots, actually) I would like to hear. this is what I can bring to the meet:

 

Head gear I can bring:

Focal Spirit One

V Moda M-100

V-Moda M-80

Skullcrusher Aviator

InCase Sonic

Velodyne V-Pulse

 

Sources I can bring:

Asus Vivo Tab RT - I am totally surprised by this tablet's output (made better with the HRT, of course - but it is a fun way to have a mobile computer with 96GB for on the cheap and Media Monkey)

Sandisk Clip +

Nuforce Udac (I believe the Udac II w/out the preamp outputs)

HRT MicroSrtreamer

 

Plus, of course, some(non-audiofile approved) music. If anyone wants to take a listen to anything above, please, please let me know and I will be there for the early shift. Also, if anyone is brining a Q701 or X1, please let me know!\

 

Thanks!

Oops - I almost forgot: Digizoid Z02 (works great with the Incaase and Skullcandy Aviators).

The HE-60 has been sold and shipped, so not much for me to contribute.

What's the procedure for selling things at the meet? Anything that's frowned upon? I am going to have my T90 and my Magni for sale at the meet and I was planning on just putting sticky notes on their boxes with the price on them. Is that alright?

Never thought I'd see the day. What's next?

But your seasoned advice for the savvy listener is the shiz! Always good to have your 2c in the opinion bucket. :)

Fine by me. As long as it's headphone/audio/geek/tech related, go for it.

I used to own a set of Rega r3's (bought used from the same place). I'm sure the RS3's would make most people happy.

Running through the DFW craigslist turns up a lot of great speakers. It's hard to pick just one set.

the tinnitus now keeps me from even using a headset at work, so.... a nearfield 2.1 system through my computer and a Xonar card. Decidedly a step down. I'll give this a few months until I get sorted in Portland, and see what the new mancave layout looks like before getting serious. Oh, and I haven't yet figured out how to incorporate the Ayon, so it is listed as well.

 

Sadly, with the funding uncertainty of my employer, I have a bunch of stuff to do this weekend to be on call to go mobile Monday afternoon.

 

Not to worry - keeping busy on other fronts:

Noooooo. My beloved Ayon. Lol.
post #180 of 227

Yeah... it CAN be all yours...   :beerchug:

 

Not sure what is sadder - disassembling the system, or no longer being able to enjoy it as it sat idle. Oh, well, Gibsom & Martin are helping me recover.
