Also, another big thanks to everyone. Everyone was extremely kind, welcoming and created an environment that makes me proud to be a part of.
I got to listen to a lot things that I had never gotten a chance to even be in the presence of before, including the numerous Stax, Audeze, and the rare K1000.
The big standouts for myself were the Stax SR-007, Heaudio Jades, the AUG K1000 and the K812, and the HD600 (via tubes). I almost forgot the Denon D7000.
I also learned that both Hifiman and Audeze aren't my thing (though the HE-6 was my favorite of the two brands).
I'll post more soon, but those are my quick impressions.
