Los Angeles/San Fernando Valley mini-meet, February 15  

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 

Note: let's aim for early February for this one. Pushing back to the 15th... need more time to build interest.

 

I'm interested in meeting headphone enthusiasts around the San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles area. I can host a small meet at my home near Northridge, with room for about seven setups plus my own. I'm primarily interested in hearing other headphones besides the ones I own, and other headphone amps. Examples would be the LCD-X, LCD-3, Hifiman HE-6 or HE-500, Senn HD800, the Mad Dog or Alpha Dog, many closed headphones I haven't heard yet, and good amps for driving these.

 

Time and Location:

 

The plan is to start at noon on February 15th. No set ending time--as long as someone wants to keep listening we'll keep going.

 

Location is my house at 8418 Oso Ave, Winnetka, CA, 91306. You can park in the drive to unload stuff, and then move to the street. There is plenty of unlimited-time street parking.

 

My contact phone number is 626 710 8663.

 

Pizza and drinks will be provided courtesy of Brilliant Zen Audio. Can you give me some drink orders? I mean do you want Coke, Root Beer, or diet drinks, etc? If I don't hear from anyone I'll probably just provide Coke and Diet Coke.

 

People coming by train and bus... there are a few bus stops within one block on all sides, so you don't have to walk far. If you get into trouble and need help, call me any time that morning at 626 710 8663.

 

bring power strips and extension cords.

I'd be interested! Saturdays work best. I have DNA Stratus/Grace m903/HD800. Also, will shortly be posting event info for the big LA/SoCal meet on March 22. Stay tuned!

Great, I'll start tracking interested parties in the first post. I'd love to get an extended listen to the HD800.

third_eye, you aren't too far from me, and I've wanted a chance to hear the Stratus/HD800 combination (particularly interested in the imaging, I know from past experience that Don's amps have amazing imaging and then you are pairing that with the HD800), so maybe I could bring my transport/DAC over to your place to hear it, sort of a 2-person mini-meet, if we can't get anyone else interested soon.

This thing still happening?

Yup, I'm still willing to host a mini-meet of up to 7 people at my house, but just waiting to see if there is enough interest.

 

Maybe I should retitle this "Los Angeles Mini-Meet" because it's essentially in the Los Angeles area.. in fact much of the Valley is within the Los Angeles city limits. It doesn't seem to be getting much attention when titled "San Fernando Valley."

How about February 8 for this meet, assuming we get a few more people interested? Or is Feb 1 or Feb 15 better?

post #12 of 55
Feb 1 or 8 is fine for me.
post #13 of 55

I'm interested as well. I have the HE500s that I can bring as well as my Grados sr325i.

 

Would love to be able to test out different amps for my HE500s and perhaps for the HE6 as a future purchase.

 

I am also in the Pasadena area. Would be convenient for me to meet anywhere in LA.

Thanks, Angelbelow. Out of Feb 1, 8, and 15, what works for you?

 

We need a few more people with amps to respond. Right now we would have the DNA Stratus from third_eye, and I have a few amps but they are all custom-modified, not something you can buy.

For now, I am fine with any of the dates. I had the woo audio wa7 but I sold it so I won't be able to bring an amp. (also why I was hoping to try some out ^_^)
