Under $2k? That still puts it in LCD 2/3 and HD800 price categories...this might be what im looking for as my next upgrade :) Assuming its on par with those 2 but with the HE-1000 sound (a bit fuller/smoother than the 800, from what i hear) 


I really suggest you give it a good listen before making a decision. At under 2000 there's a ton of gear to pick from you might like.

It's a direct competitor to the LCD-X.

You could get a capable stat rig for under 2K if you hit the right deals. I wouldn't necessarily rush into buying something new from hifiman or audeze given the frequency of their upgrade cycle. Not something that expensive anyway.

Oh true, i was being facetious - eventually ill be looking at all sorts of options if i ever upgrade from the hd800s.  But im a fan of hifiman, i was hoping for a cut down version of the HE1000, didnt realize the X was a real thing till a couple weeks ago
 
 
Is there any talk for another Winnipeg meet? :)

I'm in town and available the 14th, 15th, and 21st evenings. I'd love to hear an HD800 and see if it's worthwhile saving up to upgrade from my hd600. The Internets are divided on that issue.

As a fantastic coincidence, those are just about the only days I have free in the next couple weeks. What about the rest of you guys?

Alright, I'm coming to Winnipeg tomorrow night (Unleash the Archers are playing at the Zoo. Any power metal fans want to come?). Shall I bring my main rig, or are we putting the meet off till next week?

Are they actually playing there? I haven't been able to find any details on it since the zoo sold. I even messaged the bands facebook page but they didn't have any details on a show other than they were playing in winnipeg. If they're at the zoo I'm there

Yup, they're playing. They were supposed to be opening for Hibria, who dropped off the tour. So it's a UTA headline tour now. I have no idea who's opening or any other details.

Something's come up and I won't be able to make it in tonight. I'm still coming to town tomorrow till Friday though, and will bring some toys if people want to hang.

Only a couple voices so far... so maybe next week would be better? We can tentatively say the evening of the 21st if that works for people.
