I really liked the Yggy>Black Widow combination at your table. I brought over Warren's Ether and loved the sound coming from that combination. I liked it better than the Chord Hugo>Liquid Carbon>Ether combination. Since I already have the Liquid Carbon and Ether on order, I would have liked to have heard Yggy>Liquid Carbon>Ether. I'm trying to resist thoughts of getting the Yggy and Black Widow.Yggy > EC Studio > Abyss/HD800/HE1000 was the best rig I've ever heard.
I have put aside $10k for the studio. I've never heard an amp as good in my life, bar none. Better than the MKIV which was superior to the pinnacle and teton. I was almost in tears.
The biggest surprise was the geek out v2. I like the first but this was a significant step up. I have to rethink my portable chain as the Triad holds it back. The STOCK Geek Out v2 beat the pants off my v1 SE.
The biggest disappointment was the Hugo TT. Less resolving, less smooth, terribly harsh (old British HiFi sound) when stacked against the Geek Out V2. This little $300 think paired with the Leckerton (4627-B) beat out the Hugo TT hands down with my HD800.
A lot of folks were surprised by the Eddie Current Black Widow at my table. I'll let Warren and others comment. He tried to place an order at the meet, ha-ha.
^agreed. I really enjoyed itResistance is Futile …
I'll post up some thoughts later. Sort thoughts - lots of great equipment and head-fiers in a great setting with gracious hosts made for the most fun meet I've attended. Got to try a bunch of fun gear in many combinations, and missed a bunch of stuff - completely missed Craig and Marv's table. Special shout out to Jude and Warren for letting me bogart the Ether, and to our organizer and mad scientist BillP!
