Philadelphia Are Meet 10/26 LeeSure Extravaganza  

post #1 of 73
Thread Starter 

Lee did a fantastic job with running the regional meet today and we had an outstanding turnout. Jack Wu showing his magnificent Woo products and Justin Wilson fantastic company and his products of which I took the GSX home with me to review for Part Time Audiophile.  The sour s coming form all the rigs were lots of fun. Making a huge splash today was the  new Audeze X and XC with the X  really steeling the show. The sound stage was very wide and extremely deep and this may be the best Audeze headphone yet priced at $1699..0 with the XC at 1799.00.  Jack had plenty listening to the Abyss headphones on the WA234 and also the lcds and LCD3 were doing a nice job on bothe the 234's and the GSX.  The Mr Speakers Alpa Dog was well received and in constant use on everyone's rig. The HD800 were popular on lots of rigs today as well as Dminches OTL designed by Glenn.

 

I want to thank Lee and everyone who attended to make this meet a smashing success and look forward to seeing everyone at the NY meet in a couple of weeks. Great mer and thanks to Fang for the RE600 raffle door piirze that I picked the winner for and helping to defray the cost. Suoer job everyone!!!!!!

 

Missed MULLETT and DEADEARS and my buddy NIKONGOD and some others who could not make it. Hopefully next meet.

I thoroughly enjoyed the denon 7000s. Thanks, Colin, for letting me check those out. Also really liked the lcd-x. If I had the budget, I'd get those two pairs. Sadly, I don't see either in my budget any time soon frown.gif


I spent some time a/b'ing the alpha dogs vs the bmf dbv#3 t50rps, and I hate to say, I'm a bit disappointed. They sound very solid, I will say, but I expected more based on the hype. Not sure if it was just poor synergy or if my ears aren't as good as others here, but the alpha dogs sounded rather harsh and a bit sibilant.. They're a hell of a lot nicer looking and feeling than the stock t50rps, but sound wise, not that great. I'd be very interested in trying them out for a longer period of time, perhaps they just need some brain burn in time.

Thanks for sending the alpha dogs in. Even though they weren't my cup of tea, it was awesome getting to give them a listen, since I've had my eye on them since they were announced

I had a chance to hear LCD-XC which had boomy bass on a Pink Floyd track and as usually heavy. I also heard ugly looking and heavy, but at least more comfortable than LCD-XC, Abyss which sounded great. I like how Alpha Dogs sounded from RWAK100 so for me they are suitable for portable use. I also tried HD800 with Alo AUdio cable on few setups including S.E.X. amp with speakers taps and I confirmed that I made the right choice buying HD800 as my end of the game headphones.

This was my first meet and I must say the bar was raised quite a bit on what I consider reference gear.  Until yesterday, I hadn't heard about 75% of the headphones that were available, not to mention the amazing amps, so this was quite an education.  I was particularly impressed with the Audeze line as well as the Alpha Dogs and the D7000.  Thanks to everyone for sharing their gear and making the meet a fun, as well as educational, experience.

I have been to around 4 of the Philly meets over the years and they are ALWAYS a blast! Next time I'll just leave her in the hospital and she can wait... :bigsmile_face:

I ended up HAVING to take her for an emergency tooth extraction, RIGHT afterwards which she neglected to tell me, you know yesterday was NOT my day! :(

 

I am glad it turned out as awesome as usual! I may never get to own most of the super high end gear but just listening is a real rare treat, let alone

meeting other members!

I look forward to the next one, whenever it may be... :smile_phones:

A great event -  many thanks to Lee & Frank. Lee was the most gracious of hosts. And I really enjoyed hearing those Audeze X's that Frank brought along. That, to me, was the highlight of the day. They reminded me of my main speakers (a planar magnetic/ribbon) and I don't think that's a coincidence.
