    I don't plan on selling the Mojo, but I'm always interested in a trade for something better. I plan on selling everything else though, although I've had some people tell me the Groove is better. I just got the Groove and haven't really used it yet. The one thing I stillneed for the 660S is a good desktop amp to give it a ton of power. I listen to a lot of hip hop and synthwave, so the one down side to the Mojo for me is that it doesn't provide enough bass power to make my 6XX [and soon 660S] exciting for those genres. I've seen some comprehensive reviews that say the Schiit Jot amp is incredible for the 650, but I've never tried it and I don't wanna waste the $50 restocking fee if it's not going to give me the bass slam I want. My main objective at this meet will be to find the right amp for my 660S.

    I used to have the Jot and H650. I would pass on Jot.

    Oh please elaborate. Plus I'm switching to the 660 which is much more neutral, so I don't know what pairing works well for it. I know the HDV 820 does after my demo, but that's about 5x out of my budget.

    Looks like you fell for the same trap I did Jwizz - there will be a couple of pairs there!
  5. JWizzlez
    Good cause now I get to go around auditioning amps for my 660. I assume we'll get them in time with UPS ground since we have 10 biz days before the meet? Mine haven't shipped yet.

    @Icasadonte: So unfortunately I'll still be out of town until Sunday.

    Real sad I can't make this event (been waiting for a couple years now)

    @lcasadonte -- I sent you a PM with my name. :)

    I'll bring an Aeon, PMx2, Tisbury Audio CA-1, DACmini CX, possibly LFF Paradox Slants, and whatever else fits in my bag.

    Sent a PM earlier this week but in case that didn’t go through, my name is Jared Weiss.

    I’ll also be bringing the Shozy Alien gold, so if anyone is interested in demoing it and wants to listen to their own music, bring a micro sd card that is FAT32 formatted with the albums in individual folders on the card and nothing else on it. The Alien is super picky about working correctly. Took me months to figure out how to set up the files without any issues popping up! I have a mix of stuff like Dave Brubeck, Beyoncé, Daft Punk, YoYo Ma, Kanye, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Kamasi Washington, Bon Iver and some other stuff on there so it should satisfy any genre taste. I’m sure this group isn’t that excited over the Alien, but other head-fiers I met were so I figured I’d give you the heads up.

    Thanks I'll get the list updated. Sorry if I missed a pm. On my third state this week. MA will be 4. From Blink about parking and demos:

    Parking is usually best at the Parking garage at 260 Green Street, ($2/hr, best value) corner Green / Pearl Street, two blocks from here.

    • parking garage at Pilgrim Street ($12/hr) (coming from Mass Ave, turn into Sidney, 3 short blocks, turn right).

    Please send me a list with names of the members of the group if you have it. If you send me their emails, I can instruct them, or just forward this info.
