    Bay Area (San Jose) Meet Impressions (Jan 27, 2024)

    What surprised me most was actually Aurorus Audio's Borealis open backs. For $900 they are a great value headphone. Neutral but still enjoyable. I'm not a fan of that floppy headband, but besides that, it is a solid open back with great staging and imaging. If money wasn't tight right now, I'd...

    Comment by 'DimitriSF' on listing 'DAN CLARK CORINA ELECTROSTATICS'

    The Corina is my favorite electrostatic HP. I've auditioned the Voce, the entire Stax line up, the Warwick line up, the HE-1, and the Corina is my favorite. Sure the HE-1 is amazing but at 60K, it's a non-starter. $3K is also a really good used price. If my budget wasn't tight, I would pounce on...

    Agreed. Eric was really great. Super kind, so accommodating, and just a really nice guy. Pure class.

    CanJam SoCal 2023 Impressions Thread

    My parting thoughts about this week's CanJam: I was blown away by most of the estats I heard: Sennheiser HE-1 (no surprise there!), Warwick Aperio, DCA Corina, the STAX line up... I never understood what people meant when they described estats as sounding more "ethereal". Now I've heard them...

    CanJam SoCal 2023 (September 30-October 1)

    Thanks for the advice. I'm flying back, same day, so no baggage at all. Google maps' walking directions, between John Wayne and Irvine Marriot, has me going the long way around (2 miles). Is there a shortcut? I can walk 2 miles, no problem; just wondering for my return walk, when I go catch my...

    Yup, I know about the shuttle, but I fly in at 7:30 AM tomorrow, so I rather than rushing to the hotel, just to twiddle my thumbs for 2 hours, I figured I'd walk.

    Is anyone walking (or has already walked) from John Wayne Airport to the hotel? Is it possible? Or, is it better to grab a cab, uber, shuttle? I know it might rain, but I'll bring my umbrella. D

    My suggestion is for you to go early, and put your name on the manual sign-up sheet, at the Sennheiser booth. If there are no-shows, they call the people on that list, to fill the open slots.

    Am I the only person who intends to listen to a crappy, poorly-mastered song with the HE-1, just to see how it sounds?

    CanJam SoCal 2023 (September 30-October 1)

    If anyone wants to switch their HE-1 Saturday slot for my Sunday 3:00-3:30 PM slot, let me know. My hope is to fly in Sat morning, and fly home Sat night.

    Samsung S23 incompatible with Schiit Modi+ DAC

    In case anyone is interested, I captured the distortion, in a brief audio clip. It starts 6 seconds in, last for 20 seconds, then goes back to normal. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VNy7uM2T4jT6oC1X5QMXHAd7k3SolXu4/view?usp=share_link Can anyone help?

    Samsung S23 incompatible with Schiit Modi+ DAC

    The Schiit Modi+ DAC isn't compatible with the Samsung S23 for some unknown reason. The Modi+ worked just fine with my Samsung S20, but when I try to stream audio (YouTube Music, Amazon Music) or stream videos (Amazon Video), it initially plays perfect audio for maybe 10 minutes or so. Then the...

    I'm going to add a Verite Closed to my gear list. @David A Silva , I couldn't stay away, and bought another set of VC headphones :) I'm going to bring a bunch of different pads for it. If I remember, you chose the lambskin Auteurs and Universe pads. If you're curious how the suede Auteurs change...

    You're welcome. Looking forward to trying out everyone's gear. Speaking of which, I'll bring the following: NITSCH Piety amp. Released last month, in a very limited run. A nice little solid-state amp, lauded for its full, tube-like sound. Yamaha HP-1 vintage headphones. These are the world's...

    That is an incredible price for an epoxy-stabilized set! I would've expected this to be priced higher. Wow.

    Ok, since I've already reserved it, and folks can make it, we'll have the meet at Saturday, January 28, 2023, 12 PM - 5 PM, at the Ingleside Library Branch in San Francisco. When the time gets closer, I'll create an RSVP/Gear google sheet to track who's coming.

    Hi folks. The only January date I could book is Saturday, January 28, 2023, 12 PM - 5 PM, at the Ingleside Library Branch in San Francisco. That's the day before the San Jose meet-up (hosted by SF Audio Lodge). I tried to find an earlier week, so as not to have 2 events so close together, but...

    I wish I'd have checked here before buying from ebay. Yours are cheaper, in better condition, and include the original box. I can attest to the sound quality. Definitely a steal at this price.

    Anyone in the SF South Bay Area?

    @nickpa , the event isn't letting me choose a ticket. Am I doing something wrong? Edit: nevermind, works now. Got my ticket. See you all then.

    Hi @Thunder240, Sorry for the delay; got distracted with work. I'm planning for January. I'm trying to reserve the meeting room at the Ingleside library branch (by City College) for one of those Saturdays. If that falls through, I'll just have it in my home, like I did in 2019. (My street has...
