I remember others took many photos as well. Post 'em, guys! :D

This was my first audio meetup and the first opportunity I have had to experience some truly amazing equipment and sound. The only equipment I have had a chance to use before are the devices I own myself (HD598, DT770Pro, Magni/Modi, Valhalla, E17), with all of which I have been very pleased, but they are definitely still low-end to mid-range audiophile gear. So, it was wonderful to get a chance to check out some more high-end items and to really hear what great audio can be like.

 

It was also really great to be with a group of people whom share such a strong appreciation for, knowledge of, and familiarity with high-quality audio. For once, I was on the learning end of things instead of trying to share my sound and limited knowledge with my often-not-as-enthusiastic friends, haha. I only have one or two friends whom are semi-serious about high-quality sound, so I do not really have much of a regular opportunity to share my interest with others.

 

I would say that the highlights of the day for me were as follows -

Alpha Dogs on the Schiit stack - it was great to hear a closed headphone sound so good, had a nice little chat with Dan

HD800 on the Decware - this was some of the best sound I heard all day

Shpongle on the Kuzma - first chance I have had to listen to the new Shpongle vinyl I got, and it sounded incredible

Rega RP3 - I plan to get one of these in the nearish future, so it was good to check it out and give it a listen

 

I had a blast and I look forward to the next one. The two friends I brought with me had a wonderful time too. I expect I may also try to make the Austin even in January as well if possible.

 

Thanks to Nick for organizing these events!

I wish I could have made it. They moved my Dallas meeting to 10/3-4. I did enjoy Dallas' hospitality for the 3 days I was there. Keep the Pics coming! Great to see the good gear. I concur about the HD800's and the CSP2+. I love the combo with the USAF-596 in the rectifier slot.

 

Nick, is that the Mesh EML 5U4G you were using in the CSP2+?

Yes indeedy! Tried nearly all of them except the Sophia 274b which is outside the rated specs. EML 5U4G mesh is my favorite.

I'll bet it looks awesome in the dark as well!

Looks like a great meet guys!!   I'm hopeful to make an appearance at the next Austin meet.   I'm working nights these days, so I'm sure I can probably be there...but consciousness is not guaranteed.

Sorry I missed this one... looks like it was fun.  I should be there for Austin, though.  

 

Nick, are you still trying to kill people with that salsa?

Finally able to catch up by reading this tread.  No surprise that I wish I would have been able to attend.

 

Provided the salsa wasn't left over from the June meet, it was probably OK.

Maybe I was imagining it, but didn't I see something about Austin 2014 somewhere?
