Andy, did you order me a couple of shirts?
Meet equipment update
I was perusing kickstarter recently and came across the Sicphones - a high end Silicon Carbide headphone amplifier. Now DIY headphone amps are two a penny, but the Silicon Carbide reference rang a mental bell, as Nelson Pass brought the simple constant current-driven topology to near legendary status. Though I'm pretty sure that a JFET headphone amp with this specific SiC component is quite a rarity.
So... I emailed the Sicphones designer and he's shipping a prototype over to the meet!
Do take a look at the Sicphones kickstarter web page -
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1682246865/sicphones-a-high-end-silicon-carbide-headphone-amp - and consider backing this innovative project. Monetary pledges give sponsors the option of receiving an amp in kit (self build) or fully assembled form.
Meet countdown - 13 days and counting!
Anybody fancy one last competition to keep the momentum going?
Yes, with only 14 days to go, finally, the BHSE has entered the building!
Talk about cutting it short. But now I can come to the ball with something to offer.
Here's a quick snapshot of it sitting on it's shipment box, with with my Stax O2 on the power supply to show scale.
And I'm about to go away for a week, so no impressions other than to say the standard of constructions and finish does indeed match Justin's high reputation.
Congratulations, that is pure audio porn! You're in for a sublime sonic treat.
Really sorry there Andy, you put the word 'sonic' and 'porn' in the same sentence...
Childhood officially ruined
Only recently learnt about this show.Looks like you've put in a great deal of effort.
I'm interested to the point of wanting to gauge if there's anything better than my Meridian/Rudi RPX-303/LCD3s(balanced)??(excluding electrostatic).
Is it possible to state what high end Amps will be available for demo?
81 pages is a lot to go through?
That sounds good to me too, obviously being an earlier casualty, having to drop out
Sounds like this will be the meet to end all meets, still gutted I cannot go... That being said, its prompted me to spend a whole lot of money recently, so its not all bad
Young man your journey of audio discovery is just beginning!
vive la différence
In a word no, as the amplifiers present will overwhelmingly be headphone versions, though some attendees may bring high end amps to power particularly hard to drive headphones. Thread page 1 lists the amps that attendees are bringing along and if you look at the retailers who are supporting the event, you can peruse their respective websites to ascertain what amps they're likely to bring.
Yes,Headphone Amps are what I'm interested in-as in the Rudistor RPX--303?!
Ah OK, just never heard of Rudistor before.
The Violectric range will be present and the Burson lineup too. Personally I doubt whether anything solid state can touch my ECP Audio DSHA-1 sonically, but if it clears Customs in time the new Cary HH-1 might push it close. There's also a Bakoon Products AMP-11R that sounds amazing.
Hi everyone, I am bringing...
T-50P - now burned in, pads squashed and sounding awesome, these will surprise some I guarantee
ATH - ES55
Jolly good! Thanks for letting me know.
