Hmm...what to bring, what to bring? I'm thinking I'll bring my iFi iCan Pro + iDSD Pro + iPower Elite combo with the Audeze LCD-5. That'll be easy to transport.

I was planning to bring my LCD-5 too. Along with the Soloist 3XP and the MEST MKII IEM.

I'll be interested in that HD800 if it SDR mod, I'll bring my Beyer T1 Dampening mod :D

otherwise ZMF Verite Close with Hugo 2 and maybe Vioelectric 281 for me.

A recent addition to pair with the TH900 and I couldn't be happier with it. I love the TH900, but they can be painfully bright to my ears when listening on SS amp without eq (even the anniversary tuning edition). WA6 has made them much more enjoyable for me without needing eq.


I thought the TH900 was warm and bassy already, maybe my iteration was an older one.

@Law87 The bass is bomb for sure. I guess warm/neutral/bright labels don't work too well for V-shaped headphones. The bass is bomb and impactful, the treble can occasionally be peaky and strident, the mids are a tad scooped. I personally enjoy the "stock" sound signature quite a bit as long as it's not too fatiguing and that's where the WA6 is shining for me.

that's too much for me lol..My bass preference is with Susvara, HE1000SE and HD800s, hell I'm even ok with my Beyer T1.

ZMF VC sometime push my limit.

Oh cool! Never been to a meet before, and I didn't know that there was one 15 minutes from where I live. I'll probably bring my my modded HE6se V2, Centrance Ampersand, Oriolus BA300s mk. 2, Hifiman R2R2000 red, and maybe an IEM or two.

I think I should be able to make the meet. If I can, I should be able to bring a hotspot, mobile roon server, auralic altair streamer, vega 1 dac and taurus headphone amp, hugo2, focal utopia's, 64 audio tia fourte's, a&k Kann 1 and a pair of Beyerdynamic T5P's which are for sale. I also have some pi streamers set up to work with roon i could bring if anyone wanted to play. It will be nice to see folks again.
