PS, when you get tired of your CS1.6's, be sure to let me know! Thiel are among my favorites.
 
It's true, I was so happy when I came to that realization. I did realize that my current system isn't going to be my endgame system (like I thought it was), but at least my next step is relatively attainable.

It's an excellent album, isn't it?

 

If you have the chance, take a look at YoYo Ma's other cross-genre albums like the Silk Road Ensemble (Beyond the Horizon is my favorite), his work especially with these cross-genre and cross-culture pieces is incredible.

That pair of 596's look really good!  :D

The Omens are the "easy" load. We're still waiting for the Magnepans to be shipped, but for the moment I'm using my Eminent Technology LFT-VIs for the "tough" load. Really too tough--they're more Emotiva XPR territory. The Magnepan 1.7s should be right about at the limit of what Ragnarok can do.

 

Back on the subject, I'm glad Lee got the Vali, and sorry about no Ragnarok for the show. It's still undergoing teardowns and tweaking.

Thanks for selling them to me. They look and sound excellent in the WA5. Now I need to source some more

This meet made me want to upgrade my T50rp's to the D7000's.  Huge step up in cost, but they sounded fantastic.  When you're ready to upgrade, let me know, Taowolf51..

Wow, another ET fan?!  I had some LFT3's in the day, Bruce's work is first rate.

Man I am bummed I missed this meet. The two people that were supposed to go with me ended up having to work. I didn't know anyone else and felt a little shy about going and not knowing anyone and being a newbie to the whole headphone scene. I regret it know... I should have gone. Well I guess I will just have to be on the look out for the next east coast meet in NY. or Philly.

I was really looking forward to see how my DT990 250ohm sound with a Schiit Valhalla.

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.
Anyone else share the boomy bass opinion? This would be unacceptable if true in a phone of this price :-(

I did not find this to be the case.

Well, I didn't care for the Abyss, so there is really no substitute for a direct listen.

Thanks Lee for having this again. This was my 4th meet and by far my favorite.

It was awesome talking to Lee, Frank I, dminches, TaoWolf51, Craigster75, etc..

I feel in love w/ the WA5 w/ hd800s and the he-6s. Should be placing a order for this around march-april.

The Glenn OTL sounded great as well. I wouldn't mind having one of these too for the price.

WA234 seemed to be the amp of the event which is understandable. Although I didn't care much for the Abyss w/ it the hd800s shinned very well on it.

It was essentially a bunch of us awkwardly walking around making some awkward conversation and touching really expensive things - so yeah it was pretty awesome! Definitely come next year! :)
