Guys while I'm definitely coming, the Leben won't be with me. I sold it. Sorry. I will have the ATW3000ANV with me, and also my PSB M4U2, but what amp is up in the air at the moment.

Are you doing any reviews for Inner Fidelity still?

post #168 of 522
Yes, I'm still part of the reviewing staff there, my last review was just a couple weeks ago.

You should see about talking with Chris Z. who represents Allnic Audio.  I think it would be great to get a review out there for those two.

Go ahead and count me in for the meet. I'll figure out my travel/lodging plans sometime between now and then. :p

It has been a while since I attend a headline meet in the area. I believe it was at Ray Samuel's house in 2004/5. I recently added an sennheiser hd800 to complement the Smyth virtual Realiser A8 that I bought. I look forward to attending and learning about people's favorite headphone amps.

Oh boy do I want to hear a Smyth!

I'm using my vintage, fully restored Pioneer SX-1980 monster receiver during the times when I'm not reviewing an amp for IF.

Not sure if I will bring it with me to the meet but I understand the desire to hear it having followed this product for ten years since it was first announced as a prototype in 2004 in an article in Widescreen Review. I must stress that the power of the product is in the personalized measurements of how your ears react to the measured speakers and listening room. Of course people are trading measurements of rooms with others with varying degrees of success. With Glenn Poor's Audio of Champaign being a dealer ,at least people don't have to travel to Los Angeles for purchase and measurements. I did not want to order the product and attempt to find a room to measure on my own.

It is an amazing solution to a particular audiophile/videophile problem I.e. the condo/apartment dweller who hates the absence of a sound stage in headphone listening and whose neighbors will not permit a full fledged surround sound/subwoofer system be employed. Its value for professional recording engineers has long been recognized. It is unfortunately not a "turn key" product. It requires a significant learning curve, accurate measurements and a cooperative party to permit their room to be measured. The price is also not inexpensive. But if done properly, it is almost like having a Xerox machine for listening rooms. I am confident that this technology or something very similar will play a role in creation of virtual reality environments of the future. I find it hard to believe that the Oculus Rift will not use a technology similar to the Smyth Realiser.

I have just begun my learning curve with the Realiser if it goes well, I may bring it to the meet in June.

Hey!
Wish I could have been there, haven't been able to spend much time in Chicago lately.
Am trying to plan an extended visit to include chiunifi.
Axpona looked great from the pics, did you have fun?

Did you go down to Glen Poors in Champaign to buy it?  Lorr Kramer was just there two weeks ago but I got sick and couldn't make it.
