Oh I know I was just making the statement. Cavalli Audio has a sale on them at the moment. At its sale price it could possibly be worth the price as end game. I'm usually critical of their non sale prices in general. I feel the EC amps are worth their asking prices usually in the high quality transformers they use. The liquid glass seems like a very versatile endgame amp with plenty of power for even the HE-6 and I think it's a dead sexy amp personally. Just at its non sale price I couldn't justify it even if I had the money when placed next to competition like the BA.

The new Pharrell album, G I R L, sounds fantastic! Love it! Will definitely be part of my meet test disk. The man is single-handedly rescuing pop music from the abyss.

The discount rate is good right up to the 19th. call them direct, at 1-704-892-9120.

I called twice yesterday and spoke to a nice young lady. She said that she knew nothing about the discount but did see that headfi had scheduled a meeting on the 19th. She said that she would check with the manager. I'll call back today and try again.

I'll come down. I'll bring my modded Grado SR60i's, Schiit Magni/Modi, and MacBook Pro. Vinyl is too heavy.

I'm still down for this meet. Been bugging the piss out of my managers to get the off time Approved, that I put in for like a month ago... scehdules come out 2 weeks ahead of time, so I'll be there FOR SURE

 

and to update my list, in case I haven't told u guys

 

my HE 4 and W1000x are both getting a Mini Azude Ear Ring mod, and each will be feed by a Half Sleeved 24 AWG OCC Midnight Cable, built by Brian at BTG. I guess for those of you who want to listen to the w1000x or HE 4 will need to swap out the cables although the W1000x will be fed by my Portable Rig... so it's complicated <3

 

I might have to pony up for another cable or see if some one has one I can barrow [maybe the dudes at Moon Audio will lend me a cable, I can do some free advertiseing for them lol]

 

Non the less my HE 4 is also getting fitted with wood Cups made my MonkyNutz, so I'm the happy owner of three wood back headphones <3.

 

Just hoping Briant at BTG can get all of this work done before te 19'th

I'm bringing two sets of HiFiMan-compatible cables. One is the stock HE-6 cable, the other is homemade. You can borrow one for the meet, or experiment.

For whatever it's worth, the stock HiFiMan cables are technically very good. I mostly made my own because I wanted something with better ergonomics

You can add Mad Dog Pro to my gear list.
