    Sorry, Eric, I'm East Coast only. But whichever table you are working at next year, I'm sure it will have plenty of Twizzlers treats :wink: You have to make it to NYC, otherwise what was the point of getting that winter jacket to use it only once? :p

    Funny you mention the coat, that topic was brought up at the show. I agree 100%.

    Oh man, the land down under, that might even get me on a plane. I guess I would have an excuse to get a passport also.

    Loads of great stuff at Canjam Socal.

    Best IEMs I heard were the new 64 audio unnamed flagship. Really spectacular. Close runners up were the Jomo Audio Trinity, the TOTL hybrid SoftEars (Moondrop) and the Shozy x AAW Pola 39.

    Was surprisingly not a huge fan of the Noble Khan. I'm a huge Noble fanboy and own (and love) many of their IEMs but these just felt a little dry to my ears. But many people absolutely love them so it's definitely very subjective. These ones just weren't for me sadly.

    By far my best experience at this Canjam were my several visits to the Effect Audio booth. You can read my impressions here if you are interested: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/effect-audio-cables-thread.787717/page-245#post-15028648

    Thanks so much to Jude and the Head-fi team for a great Canjam. Bring on London!

    Did we happen to mess around with tips during your Khan audition?

    Thanks Wata, really wanted to visit with Noble. I bought my K10's sight unseen, or in the proper forum verbage... unheard.

    Never been happier, they are amazing! Still.... I would love to visit with the family.

    My grand daughter was fine just had a virus (I believe), vomiting for @ 24 hours, then done. My wife gets worried, she's a bookkeeper, I'm a Critical Care RN.

    So... missed my Sennhieser session and many other demos. But, worst of all I missed meeting you and many other members here, and did nothing to reduce your Kit Kat inventory!

    Seriously gonna have to make this up.

    Regards, and thanks to all for posting your impressions, you made up for a lot of missed CanJam!

    No. I think I maybe made a mistake in not trying different tips, now that you mention it.

    Yes... "Poorly" measuring AKs sounding better than better measuring, cheaper DAPs.
    It's been a strange path of investigation for me these past weeks as well.

    FiiO M11: better THD/power/IMD than SR15.
    Sound? No longwinded explanation here, but for me SR15 > M11.
    SE100 I have now is even an order above that.

    AK players seem to do well on low noise floor (much lower than M11, objectively and subjectively), jitter and distortion at small power levels (i.e. Using IEMs).

    I had a very long discussion about this with a colleague EE who's designed some amazing mixed signal gear in the past, including high end, highly praised headphone DAC/amps.

    His conclusions:
    We can't measure everything yet, but overall lower noise is always better.
    Harmonic distortion, within limits is not a good indicator (this makes sense as its several orders of magnitude below transducer distortion).
    We don't understand jitter fully yet, but he goes through great lengths in his designs to keep it as low as possible.

    I'm no EE by any means, still many unclear areas for me here.

    The majority of the time when people say it doesn't sound good its a tip issue. That issue though is usually lack of bass. But I like to speak to everyone I help after they listen to make sure I gave them all the proper amount of time swapping tips and hearing what they have to say. I wasn't really the main person this time, had some help so I am not sure if it was m that dealt with you. My helper was doing a show for his first time.
