I’m interested in listening one of these. They are not very popular but they are supposed to be really good.

Please?! Although it might lead me to punch a hole in the wallet. :)

Ok. I think most of the interest is in the area of the GSX mk2 and utopias. I think I'll bring them and a DAC of my selection, but not the Yggdrasil. Let me know if anyone prefers the PS audio or the Holo audio.

The thing that I would say about the Pure Bipolar and the GSX mk2 is that they are astoundingly similar in terms of sound. The biggest difference between them is that the GSX mk2 is much more versatile in terms of gain, inputs, outputs.


wow, that's a great collection you have there. What are your favorites for HPs, DACs, and amps?

I'd definitely be interested in hearing the Stax HPs since I've been curious about them.

I can realistically only bring one setup and given the size and weight of the KGSSHV Carbon, I much prefer taking the GSX. Maybe next time.

I am much more curious about the Spring, planning on buying the Spring 2.

I'd love to give those a listen!
The connector developed an issue, probably it was an issue from factory and when I transported them home it started to fail. I was debating whether try to fix them or send them for warranty, the good news is that I tried to fix them and put a 4pin XLR instead of the 1/4" so now they are balanced :)

@DimitriSF thanks so much for being a fantastic host. Without you, a SF meetup probably wouldn't have happened at all. Be sure to thank your wife for all of us too!

It was great to meet everyone and listen to all the different gear. It was a lot o fun to talk head-fi geekery with everyone IRL instead of online.
