Uh-oh... many of the people I know who audition BHSE and Stax end up buying the rig.  In fact, um, Bear?  tongue.gif

Yep, that's the risk you take by auditioning the good stuff, adding to the addiction, I am now on the long wait for audio bliss. That's one of the reasons I am going to so many shows and meets...to keep myself busy while waiting.

Jolida Glass FX Tube DAC MKI (modded) // DIY SET ECC99/5751 // DIY SET 2A3/6SJ7 (Western Electric 91A inspired) // HE-500 (jergpads 2.5 / headband strap  / fuzzor modded)

iBasso DX50 (Rockbox & Mango FW) // Sandisk Clip+ (Rockbox) // HiFiMan RE-400 (modded) // TDK BA200 // InEar StageDiver 3

I've got some extra Westone TrueFit Star/Foam tips, Shure Olives and some others that fit narrow nozzles in a variety of sizes that I'll bring along too.

Lol, duh, I guess I could just bring a variety of tips to ensure suceess.  :D

But that's dangerous too!  Because then you start thinking "okay, got my endgame stat rig on the way... let's see if I can build a kick-ass dynamic rig in the meantime."

 

My endgame home rig - which is not even remotely in my budget right now - is an SR-007 Mk I with a KGSSHV (DAC TBD).  I've been told that a BHSE would be even better, but as I'm not remotely in a position to buy ATM, I've been avoiding adding another first-world problem to my worries.

Done.  Also made it a full table.  :smile:

Yeah, I know, that's how the HD800 and taboo made it home, I also started on the portable rig, Roxanne and AK120, etc.  

The home rig DAC and source are next...:biggrin:

Lol, INCORRIGIBLE!  :D  I'm getting an itch to explore as well.  Combined with boredom, that can get deadly.  The Mytek might have to go so I can try something else.

Hi guys,

 

I'm also awaiting my BHSE.  If Justin comes there will be no need for me to bring it (if I have it by then).  

 

I'll try to bring the F1J and the AMR DP-777, however, I'll need some table space, I can't stack them as the F1J gets way to hot.

 

My C.A.P.S consist of a two box system with keyboard, mouse and a 27in. TV as the monitor - will this be an issue?

 

I have a pair of SR 007 mk1 that I haven't heard yet.  If my BHSE is not ready - I would love to hear what I got :biggrin:

 

I can also bring my Hardwired HD800 and the Hardwired HE-6.  Those three headphones are all I have ATM..

 

--Darryl--

Darryl, how much space do you want?  We've got plenty so it's not a problem.  Will 2 tables do?  :smile:

I'll be attending.

 

Looks like there are plenty of people bringing a DX50, however I will bring mine anyways.  Currently with 1.2.8. 

 

Nothing fancy but I'll bring along my DT770 Pro 250s, and my Grado SR60i's. 

post #87 of 324

great look forward to seeing you there

post #88 of 324

I will definitely be there! Looking forward to meeting all of you guys.

post #89 of 324

Super!!!! Glad you cna make it.

post #90 of 324

While I'm flattered you gave me partial table space, I don't think I'll be needing it.  I'm just going to bring probably one pair of headphones and portable source, so someone else can much better utilize the space :P  I would likely be walking around with my stuff anyway since I was hoping to try my 595s with some nicer equipment than the base level Schiit stack I already have.

 

So thanks, but please leave that space open for someone else that will bring some other amazing gear!
