Do you need a "dog"? I'll provably last a good 13 miles before my legs turn to Popsicles and break off! I'm sure that's enough tho right XD

Hey Warren,

I told him about the meet and that I wanted to bring the TU-05. It cut my wait time down to just over five months.

Looking forward to hearing it

Hey Dallen,

You could come over and hear it before in Santa Monica.

I would love to but I have two 13 hour days of work before the meet. This is my high season for work although it recently dropped from 70 hour weeks to about 65, still high level. I had to twist an arm or two to make the meet.

Glad my schedule opened, so I'll definitely be there. Unfortunately, I don't have any table space, so I think my Audio-GD Reference 1 will stay at home, unless there's a last minute cancellation (fingers crossed). I'm hoping someone can donate some space and a set of RCA outputs from a DAC, so I can bring my Emotiva A-100, so people can have a listen with some ortho headphones? Any takers?

 

Also I try to take headphones to meets that aren't being brought by other people (for variety :D). These are the ones I don't see listed on the front page. I think I'll bring a box and carry them around, but let me know specifically which ones you'd want to hear, so I know to bring those!

 

1. Denon D7000

2. Audio Technica AD900x

3. Sony SA5000

4. AKG Q701

 

Requested so far:

5. AKG K702 65th Anniversary "Annie" - Early production

6. AKG K702 65th Anniversary - Late production (Sounds identical to K712)

I'll have room on my half table so you can use part of it for your headphones so you don't need to lug around a box the whole meet lol :D

Will I get laughed out of the building if I bring my monoprice headphones to listen with and to compare to "real" headphones???

 

LOL

 

Also you said no hair gel.... are hats OK to protect the owners headphones?

Very kind offer, but it's not that big of a deal to carry them around, and then I don't have to leave them without an amp.

Meets are pretty friendly. I think you could bring in a pair of Beats and people won't mind :p

Even *I* know not to own a pair of Beats!!  

 

I do like how the monoprice cans sound and I am trying to learn what more expensive headphones sound like and see what sounds good to me so I will know what to buy in the future.   It's a learning process for me for sure.

Alright its all cool, I get pretty tired carrying around my backpack with my headphones all day last meet. If you want a place to rest your weary arms you can use my table. :rolleyes:
