Chi-Uni-Fi 7.5 - Chicago Area Meet - Nov 2nd - Page 5  

post #61 of 107

And my Bottlehead S.E.X. is finally finished being rebuilt.  Hopefully, I did everything right and testing will go smoothly this week.  

 

So if everything goes well, I will bring the Bottlehead S.E.X., my CEntrance HifiM8, my balanced Momentums, HD800s, and the DT660s that I have for sale.  I still have my Concero (also for sale, though someone just said they were interested), so if the sale falls through or if I can convince the guy to come to the meet (he apparently lives in the Loop), I will have that there driving the S.E.X.

I have a proper balanced cable for the lighting.  I'm looking a converter so that we can plug the cans into a standard 1/4 plug amp without having to change out the entire cable.  the cable connectors on the hifiman cans is a horrible design for changing around cables imho.   I just figured it would be easier if someone would like to try the cans on their own, non balanced amp.  So I guess we'd be looking for a female RSA to male 1/4 inch.

 

if its a huge pain, don't worry about it.  I just thought it would be a nice option.

I have a 3.5mm to 1/4" adapter built already that I haven't used in a year or so.  It wouldn't take but a few minutes to swap an RSA connector onto it.  I was more concerned about the amp itself and whether or not it can handle having the grounds for each channel tied together via the 1/4" jack.  It is a question for Ray that we should ask prior to using the adapter.

wouldn't be using the adaptor on rays amp.  it is balanced in and out only.  the adaptor would be used on any other amp that needs SE.  Sorry if I'm not explaining very well.  or maybe i'm just not understanding.  I have a balanced cable for the lightning/HE-400 setup.  was just looking for an option so that we can use the same cable for the magni/modi..

 

the RSA amp is in no danger.

Ok.  I had it reversed in my mind.  Thought you wanted to use a SE headphone in the balanced amp.  Not a problem.  I have an adapter for that already.

There's good news and bad news.

 

Good news is I received the gungnir so the gungnir/mjolnir stack is available. 

 

Bad news is I'll lend my LCD2 to my friend and thus won't be able to bring it in the meet. 

 

So do you guys still want me to bring the Schiit combo?

Sadly, I'm going to have to cancel my RSVP for the upcoming meet.  Keith and all of you lovely headfi geeks, I'm sorry!  (More for myself, of course.)

Any idea when and where will the next meet be?

I'll have my LCD-2s along.  I lent my HD800s to someone, but it looks like there's plenty others with a set.

The LCD-X did arrive, just doing a first listen now.  Interesting...  Will have it at the meet.

 

I also just got a little O2 Amp to play with, will bring that along as well.

Ohhh an LCD-X, this is exciting I can't wait to see & hear it!

 

Does anyone know if there may be a pair of alpha dogs in attendance?
