Looking forward to future meets :)

Maybe we can get more and more people + gear. Pretty sure I heard that some people wanted a taste of Audeze (me included).

Big shout out to Acustoms for making it to the meet and of course Paul for organising the event once again.

 

Was absolutely awesome to have a chat, and listen to some pretty incredible gear. (Will have full meet impressions when I am less sleeepy). Hopefully we can keep something going as far as more regular mini meets... maybe even using this thread?

And now it is forever enshrined in memory, for better or for worse...

Very Nice!

 

Meet impressions:

 

-Standout for me was the Chord playing some DSD files on Taka's gear.  Crazy, unimagined levels of detail and "they are here" realism.

 

-Invicta was fantastic as always, puts my DAC to shame.

 

-GSX has a warmth to it I didn't expect but still very detailed.

 

-Unfortunately no chance to hear the Calyx Femto, will have to listen to this next year hopefully!

 

-Burson Soloist with TH900:  Great imaging, spooky at times, lots of bass, bass rather warm too.  Nice treble sparkle and 3D projection.  Best results when using the built in amplifier.

 

-ZX1:  great sound, I'm not familiar with portable gear but this blows my my old ipod to shreds.

 

-UM Mentor Nice mids and hights, rather forward presentation but great transient response and extension.  Way too much bass rules it out for me.

 

-UM miracle universal demo, smooth, sweet, spacious but slightly diffuse and blurry.  Apparently the universal is nothing like the custom.  Better balanced than the Mentor, at least with the fit I had.

Yes definitely~ as well as everyone for being there. AND viper0700 and other members who helped picking up the key and setting up the meet~

Well if someone were to hint hint report the post to the mods hint hint it might get featured hint hint...

 

I would do it myself but I am soooooooooo modest.... ^___^

Too bad I wasnt free to attend. If i had to pick a single thing it would be to try the AK240 DAP. Did anyone have it there? Would be willing to pay to hear it haha...

 

PM if you're in sydney with one and is willing to let me test out this bad boy OMG

When is the next one! Fell in love with the PS1000. Thanks to whoever brought it in! Creative aurvana live 2's were awesome for me as well.

Hear, hear!

I've been informed by the mods that if we want some featured page loving for our little meet we will have to start a new impressions thread because they don't want to promote a thread with 18 pages of planning information lol.

You should have started the impressions thread right after the meet finished and posted your video on there.

 

Most of the attendees would have moved on by now as it's been almost a 3 day gap between your post and the previous one.

Ahahah yes. With the benefit of hindsight *sadface*

=) you could probably ask mods to split off the posts in the thread into an impressions one (starting from last organizer one that you could edit).

at least phpbb and invision allowed that, not sure about huddler

ps hi Sydey hf people! :P . looks like it was a great meet wink.gif (and good to see you talked ACustoms/UMAus into coming)

Hey guys, 

 

Massive thanks for having us and a big shout out to Paul for organising this event and inviting us to come along, as well to Lachlan for documenting it so hilariously.

 

We really appreciate all of your support and it was great to get the thoughts of some very seasoned ears on some of the gear we brought down.

 

Hopefully we'll be able to make it for many more to come!
