10th Calgary Head-Fi meeting June 29th 2014 Sunday at University of Calgary - Page 2

post #16 of 82

Hi Guys!

 

While I'm looking forward to another Head-Fi get-together for Calgary, unfortunately June may not work for me. I had some fairly major neck surgery on March 31st and have been slowly making my recovery. I'm actually staying at my parents place out in BC as my condo is being renovated right now and my surgeon recommended getting away from the regular routine as you tend to do things that you shouldn't (and hence you delay your recovery).

 

I just started physiotherapy last week and will be back in Calgary for some follow-up appointments with the surgeon and family doctor at the end of June. While I'd love to attend, if June works for everyone else, I'll just have to pass on this one.

 

Let me know if July is a possibility.

 

Dale

Hi all,

Given the June 29th date, I'm going to do my best to make it and join in on the fun. Assuming my doctors give me the A-OK, here's what I'll be bringing:

Headphones:

1. Sennheiser HD800 with reterminated stock cable - can be used single ended w/ 1/8" or 1/4" TRS plugs, or balanced with RSA (Kobiconn) connector, dual 3 pin XLR or single 4 pin XLR.
2. Sennheiser Momentum Black over-the-ear - can be used single ended w/ 1/8" or 1/4" TRS plugs.
3. Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 250 ohm - can be used single ended w/ 1/8" or 1/4" TRS plugs, or balanced with RSA (Kobiconn) connector, dual 3 pin XLR or single 4 pin XLR.
4. Hifiman HE-560 - pre-ordered, so hopefully they arrive in time.

IEMs:

1. Shure SE-530 - single ended only
2. Shure SE-215 - single ended and balanced
3. Shure SE-846 - MAYBE - considering a pre-order but not likely

DAC:

1. Cypher Labs Algorythm Solo dB

DAC/AMP Combo:

1. Fiio E17 with E9 desktop amp/dock
2. Ray Samuels Audio 'The Intruder'
3. Headamp Pico - FOR SALE - $300 or best reasonable offer
4. SLIGHT POSSIBILITY - Light Harmonic Geek Pulse X with femto clocks, upgraded passive and active components, LPS 4 analog power supply and Geek Blue Bluetooth streaming adapter.

post #21 of 82

Hi, all. I'll try to attend. (I say "try" because it seems that every time I say "yes," something comes up.) I'll (try to) bring along HE-6 and bluemonkeyflyer-modded DBV#3 T50RP headphones along with a DIY Class-D amp and a Project Sunrise II DIY tube-amp/pre-amp. Also likely ODAC and CDAC+ (which is an ODAC variant with isolated USB and separate power supply). 

 

Looking forward to seeing you all.

Hope you can make it. Good luck on your recovery.

 

On another note, I'll be bringing the UE 6000, Klipsch Image One and the JVC FRD-80. So nothing special :)

I've only had the TH900 for a couple of weeks, and havent had too much time to listen. But initial impressions are that they are fun and bassy. Not too intrusive, but just a lot of bass. Not as detailed as HD800 or LCD3. I think LCD3 still wins in mids, but TH900 come close. Haven't decided if I like the TH900 more than my other phones, so I'll keep listening but right now HD800s are still my fav.

 

As for pairing, i think they pair really well with the BHA-1, they seem to control the bass a bit better than my M^3. With the M^3, they can sound a little bloated at times

I'm looking to try out a bunch of IEMs, so bring yours guys!

Just noted that the left drive on my WooDuo2s went out recently, so they wont be of any use for the meet :(
