There should be.  But hey, if not, we'll share.  Which reminds me, don't forget to bring power distribution stuff people.  :smile:

Please do! You know who you should meet and talk to? Drew Baird at Moon Audio. They carry (or can get) a bunch of stuff, are super knowledgeable, and might just turn into a semi-local dealer for you.

 

Thanks. Gotta convince the wife but I don't think that'll be too hard. I won't be able to bring much gear, as this is about all I got.

5.5G iMod, Silver LOD, Leckerton UHA 6S.MKII amp, and DT 880250ohm cans. The iMod, Amp and Silver LOD are all capless and the amp is able to comensate for the 2V of DC offset from the iMod. It has a very neutral transparant sound. I defiantely enjoy it. I also have a copper LOD (Pictured) with capacitors in it. the Silver LOD, without capacitors, causes a little distortion at higher volumes so the LOD with capacitors is nice for when I need more volume.

Here is the setup in the ALO amp wallet.



Here is the mod done by Red Wine Audio along with a pic of my solid silver LOD







Only other gear I have is the Nuforce uDAC2 and Fiio E17 amp which is nice as it can EQ the sound out of the LOD and

 

Wow, that is BEAUTIFUL!  :beerchug:

I want to see how far an HD650 can go with better amp so I'll likely bring my headphones to test around if that's okay with the other head-fiers.  It's my first time so I don't really know what's considered bad mannered.  Go easy on me! :beerchug: 

 

One of the most commonly-said things by people who have just attended their first meet is "everyone was so nice!"  Trust me, we all take care of each other.  :smile:

For that, you'll have to come to one of our SoCal meets.  :smile:

Rock on!  With any luck I'll still have the Pandora Hope IV and VI that just came in for review... which I think you might want to hear.

Yup that's what I'm doing at least with my Dad.

 

Tell them it leads to good things.  Wolfetan44 started going to meets and shows when he was 14.  That's where we met, and now he writes with us at Audio360.  :o

Update:

 

I will be attending the event and CanMania with my Dad

I will bring my:

 

-Fostex TH900

-Shure SRH1540 (didn't see anyone bringing these figured we could use some variety)

 

I won't be staying longer than half past 1pm or my pregnant wife will kill me (in case anyone wants to hear my cans).

 

Hmm, how early can you come?  Even though the meet doesn't start a little later, I think that a bunch of us at the hotel will already be having breakfast and an ad hoc mini meet by then.


Home of the Liquid Carbon, Liquid Crimson, Liquid Glass, Liquid Gold and
Liquid Lightning headphone amplifiers... and the upcoming Liquid Spark!

I was planning on staying from 10-1pm. I was under the impression that CanMania starts at 10am. Is that not correct? Maybe you quoted the wrong post of mine and meant to quote the one where I said I could come an hour early and help you setup? If that's the case then what time will you be setting up?

Lol, yes CanMania and the meet officially start at 10:00.  But for those of us who are staying at the hotel for all three days of the show, we'll already be up and about earlier than that.  We'll probably be having breakfast, hanging out, checking out each other's portable rigs, and stuff like that.  Since you don't have a lot of time, you're welcome to join us.  :smile:

Get on board for this show. There will be a slew of companies to jump on board with this show. We have one ballroom filled up with vendors and working on the second one now plus our  great Meet. Exciting times are coming. I will have the Hugo there also with the AK240 and Astell and Kern and Noble jumped on board.

I would hate for my headphones to all of a sudden grow some legs and walk off while I was gone.
