If anyone has a sealed portable headphone that you particularly like, please bring it. That's my current quest.

... I use my D2k and W1000x as portables xD

jWahl I'd love to come. I'm relatively new to high end audio, I only truly got serious about 6 months ago. So far I've got the bug bad. The chance to talk with people much more experienced than me would be fantastic. Also, demoing gear would be an exercise in wallet control as I'm a broke college kid (GT).

 

Having said that I can bring my DT880 600oHm and Lyr. I also have a Modi but I'm not sure whether you care about having multiple instances of the same piece of gear as I saw it listed a couple times in the info you listed.

My Dt 880 is running 4pin XLR Balanced, so if yours is SE, then I'd count it as a different headphone :3, plus your running from a Schiit Lyr, and me from a NFB 10ES2

 

So imo, one balanced Solid State Combo, and one SE Hybrid Tube combo is a great way for every one to experince the dt 880! Different flavors of the same headphone :3

 

it should be great!

Excellent! I'm glad a newbie like me can contribute at least something instead of just soaking up knowledge :P Sounds like a fantastic time!

Indeed, I look forward to hearing the Lyr :3, I had the Schiit Vali for a time! I liked it very much with my DT 880

I might as well bring my KEF M500. It doesn't take up much space anyways.

 

I sold my T90 today, so this is looking like my inventory I'll bring:

 

Headphones:

Sennhesier HD800

Hifiman HE-500

Koss ESP950

KEF M500

 

Amps:

Bottlehead Crack w/ Speedball

Bottlehead Quickie w/ PJCCS (You guys don't know it yet, but this will be the prime attraction. ;) It's paired well with every amp so far.)

Emotiva MiniX

 

DAC:

Audioengine D3

Not sure using stock amp. Only upgrade is the power supply and using Quickie preamp. It's supposed to be compatible with Stax amps if I had a cable convertor.

That's cool, maybe I'll see if I can come up with an adapter

My HD800's will also be there along with my Woo Audio WA22. Not sure what tubes I'll bring yet but I'll bring along a selection because the WA22 really changes character depending on what tubes are in it.

post #102 of 530
Dang I am very excited for this meet!
post #103 of 530
Dave are you running your 800's balanced to the wa22?
post #104 of 530
Anyone have any 6DJ8/6922/7308 tubes they could bring? I'm trying to find some tubes I like that I can roll into my Lyr, and I would appreciate the opportunity to try some.
post #105 of 530

It's a maybe for me. I'd certainly like to be there. I've sold most of my gear to buy the new hifiman due out in March. Hopefully I'll be able to show up with one.

 

Current gear is:

 

hd650

md 3.2

Vali 

uberfrost

 

I could bring my restored vintage Pioneer sx1280 for those who'd like to really experience how good these old receivers pair with planar hp's.
