Official 2014 Bay Area Meet - SUNDAY - Feb 16th, 2014 - Page 26  

post #376 of 431

For those keen on sampling the Omegas, I'd recommend bringing a SD card loaded up with some ALAC or high-bitrate MP3s of your choice. Besides that, something with USB/optical output might work as well -- can't guarantee playback of any other formats on the machine I'm bringing.

 

I'll have a few ALACs loaded up but it'll be mostly newer stuff like alternative rock, trip-hop, nu jazz, maybe more. It'll be a very small collection and will not suit everyone's tastes. ;)

Love the idea!

My good friends.

I am not going to make the meet tomorrow.

 

As I wrote earlier, a week ago I awoke with severe ISSNHL (idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss) in my left ear. At first the vertigo, nausea and tinnitus were all pretty severe... along with radical loss of hearing.

After 6 days of Prednisone and a cortisone injection... through my eardrum, into my middle ear (transtympanic injection)... I have lost the vertigo, but the hearing loss is still nearly total, and the tinnitus (and sound distortion) is massive.

 

So while I'd love to see everyone, and will greatly miss being at the event, I would find it too difficult and frustrating. I wouldn't be able to test any of the amazing equipment you all are bringing, and noise - talking - sounds are all too painful, even with earplugs.

 

I'll be thinking of you all, and what a great time you're having. I want to see lots of pics, and great reviews!!!
Good luck to all on the great raffle and door prizes!!

 

See you next time!

I still haven't heard if there is a table free and it's already tomorrow. Again I will be bringing the following:

 

Headphones:

 

Audio Technica ESW9s and ES10s

Beyerdynamic T770 Pros 32ohm Limited Editions (with both velour and stock pads)

Denon AH-D950 (Might bring the AH-D750s if someone can help me repair those they can have a listen)

Ultrason Edition 8s

 

Dac/Amp/Sources:

 

Centerance Dacport

Sony Vaio Z3

Nokia N9

iPod 4G

 

I could also bring the following if anyone is interested: Bang and Olufsen Beosound 2, B&O A8 earphones, iPod classic, Nokia N900...

 

Let me know if there is a free table, I should only need a half table probably? How safe are these meets in terms of people snatching stuff?

post #384 of 431

I just received my Fostex HP-V1 Portable tube amplifier and I will bring it tomorrow...

post #385 of 431

Sorry for the last minute request from folks who are attending the meet - I'm having my stock HD800 cable modified and it unfortunately didn't arrive in time for the meet.  Would anybody happen to have a spare stock vs aftermarket HD800 cable for me to use during the meet? 

 

If not no biggie - Feel free to bring your own headphones to test out my Bifrost & Cavalli EHHA Rev. A

So sorry to learn of your condition.  Just goggled it.  I didn't realize it was so severe.  I wish you a full and speedy recovery and I hope you can make it next year.

 

Take care

I have you covered.  I just found my stock HD800 cable and will bring it to the meet.  Stop by my table in Salon 4 to pick it up.

Not sure if I can share a table with someone, but I might bring some gear, just in case.  If I can't, no biggie.  I will bring my LCD-XCs and TH900s regardless.  If I can get some table space, I will share my new EC 2A3 MkIV.

Swing by! I only have 1dac/amp/HP (salon 4)
post #390 of 431

Hi everyone. I wanted to let you know that I plan to attend tomorrow's Meet too. I live in Michigan most of the year but have been lucky enough to be spending this winter in Sunnyvale, CA; only a short distance from the Meet. I'm also not normally a headphone guy. But, it seems that no matter how hard I try, or how much I spend, assembling a great sounding speaker-based audio system has eluded me. So, I'm going to change my focus and see if I have more success assembling a great sounding headphone system. Having an opportunity to audition all these great systems will really be helpful to me.

 

Thanks very much.

 

Bob
