So I can reveal it now: Kevin Gilmore Blue Hawaii
Clean build in and out, 1 case with psu inside but zero noise floor, and lots of voltage for the o2.
It's a hefty amp but sounds great!
I'd be interested in attending. I could bring along Schiit Magni/Modi and Sennheiser HD595.
NC born and raised here. I am currently in UT. I hope to return to Asheville soon and hopefully in time for the meet. Put me on the list tentatively.
Works for me.
Just a reminder my personal gear list is very tenative since I've been flip flopping around about what I want with my tax refund. I was originally going to upgrade my DAC and buy either a K812 or LCD-X but now (or for the moment) I think I'm going to just upgrade my DAC to a Concero HD and instead buy a new Macbook pro as my music and casual use computer (Kinda sad when the cost of a headphone can buy you a well spec'd Macbook pro ). I'm currently using a very large and noisy desktop gaming PC as my main source. And I've always been curious of the OSX music player software available.
I've owned the original Concero and the HD upgrade seems like it should offer a reasonable improvement, especially with my USB battery. I maybe may still get an HE-500, especially if I can find a used one, but I'm on the fence since I've only heard and owned the HE-6. My current K712 continues to impress me and I think some of you meet veterans will enjoy this one alot, especially compared to the older K701. And my previous main headphone was an HD-800 if that says anything. I can't wait to hear it on some of the high end stuff.
What tubes does the Ember use?
