    Atlanta Audio Club Annual Meet - May 5, 2019

    Due to a scheduling mix-up, the Manley Absolute is not available for the meet. Sorry to have rung everybody's bell unnecessarily! There should still be lots of interesting gear to see and hear though!!

    Atlanta Audio Club Annual Meet - May 5, 2019

    APRIL 26 UPDATE Club members and friends I have an exciting announcement adding to the raffle. In addition to the Vanatoo T1Es currently under review by yours truly, we have added a brand-new pair of Grado SR 80 (Click Here) headphones courtesy of the fine folks at Grado, and a set of new 1More (Brand) Triple Driver BT In-Ear, Batt Operated Headphones (Click Here) donated by the manufacturer and Chuck. But it doesn't end there! We'll also have four jazz vinyl albums donated by our fabulous jazz reviewer Eddie Carter from his personal collection. (And you know he ain’t got no junk albums!!) Who knows what else might get donated by the 5th!?? EveAnna Manley of Manley Labs is sending us one of their Manley Absolute Headphone Amplifiers (and also pre-amplifier) for your listening enjoyment! Don’t get too excited though… it’s NOT in the raffle! But it is a work of art! (Click Here) If you’re not going to be there you’re going to miss out on the headphone event of the year… and you don’t want to do that now, do you!

    Atlanta Audio Club Annual Meet - May 5, 2019

    We have some exciting news to share! Another company that has supported our meets in the past has stepped forward to contribute to this meet. Arthur Power of Matrix Audio and Violectric Audio USA is added to our co-sponsors for the event! Matrix is picking up the costs of the refreshments! Since they have very generously doubled our normal budget, and since the meet starts at noon, this will allow us to provide a light lunch in addition to our usual snacks! Also… there will be a raffle! I am currently reviewing a set of powered speakers that do pretty much everything you can ask for including pre-amp and DAC duties. These speakers are the Vanatoo Transparent One Encore! From what I can tell so far these things may be the Swiss Army Knife of powered speakers! Add a source and you have a system! Gavin Fish of the Gavin Fish agency, arranged for me to review these speakers. He has also arranged with the two engineers, Gary Gesellchen and Rick Kernen, who own the company, for us to raffle them off at the meet! Once my review is published, I’ll provide a link so you see my opinion of these! Of course, we’ll try to pick up a few more items between now and then just to make the raffle a little more interesting! I expect that there will be more to say as we get closer to the day of the meet, so keep watching! John
  4. This is our first full year, legally, as the Atlanta Audio Club, and once again we are honoring our commitment to support Southeastern Region headphone enthusiasts. We can’t do another CanLanta type event as it is just too much for our club to produce each year. (NOTE: We own the Canlanta.org URL. If an interested entity with the manpower and money to make another CanLanta event happen here were to step forward, we would make that URL available to them!) We WILL do our annual meet on MAY 5th at the Dunwoody North Driving Club where we met last year. Same location, same time... 12N to 5PM. As usual we'll provide space, tables, power, and refreshments! You provide the equipment and extension cords/power strips you need. For more information, see the Event Page on our website . Click Here This year, our co-sponsor for this event will be those builders of fantastic headphone amplifiers, HeadAmp Audio Electronics! We are sure you’ll be able to see, and hear, their latest and greatest at this meet! Everyone is welcome, whether you're from the industry or an enthusiast. We'll find room for everyone to show off your "stuff". If you didn't make it last year, here's another chance!! This meet is open to all, from beginners to veterans of the headphone wars! We guarantee there will be something of interest for everyone. Just getting started?? Here’s your chance to see lots of set-ups in one location and talk to the experts about your passion! Watch this forum to see who is planning on attending! John John Morrison, President, Founding Member Atlanta Audio Club Direct: 770-330-3919 mailto:[email protected] http://www.atlantaaudioclub.org
  5. So happy everyone enjoyed themselves! The lady with the Focal Utopias was at her second meet and vows to return next year WITH the Utopias this time so stay tuned!! I had a ball and just wished I had had time to hear more of the systems. BTW, I did get the HifiMan Supermini working perfectly today. Turns out I needed to install a firmware update that fixed all the problems we experienced yesterday. Listening to it right now and it even plays my Sennheiser HD580 and 650 louder than I care to listen!! Listening to it through my HifiMan HE400i's and the sound is amazing for the tiny little player that it is!! Keep the first Sunday in May open next year. Hopefully we'll be doing it again. Many thanks to Grover Neville with Schiit Audio who co-sponsored the event and also to his partner in crime Evan Grimm with Audeze! They brought a lot of great equipment for us to enjoy. Also present were Tom B from Beezar Audio who brought his stupid good amps, and Purk who not only brought his own equipment, but equipment provided by Justin Wilson of Headamp and Arthur Power of Violectric and Matrix!! Also others too numerous to mention who made this such a great meet! Can't wait until next year!! John
  6. Remember that this is NOT like our regular meetings. You can come at any time from 12N to 5:00 PM. You can wander the tables and see and hear many of those products you have only heard about on the Head-FI, Head-Case, and Superaudiobestfriends websites. Bring your own headphones and sample the players and headphone dacs & amps! Bring your player and sample the dacs/amps and phones! This is your chance to see/hear the entry level, the high end, and even historic equipment all in one place. New to headphone listening? Get a chance to pick the brains of the professionals and knowledgeable enthusiasts who will be there! All this an light refreshments provided by AAC and Schiit Audio, the sponsors of this event!
  7. Purk, you should get the chance! BTW, getting kind of concerned! Not hearing from near as many people this year as last. If you are coming, please respond to this thread and let us know! BTW, just got a Hifiman SuperMini in. Got to get some microSD cards to make it work though! Didn't realize all I had were plain old SD cards... Duh!
  8. Hey folks, I promised we'd publish a list of the Schiit Audio Gear that Grover will be bringing. At this time here's what he's telling me!We'll have the new Multibit card Lyr and Jotunheim, a loki/magni 3/modi stack, Valhalla and Bifrost Multibit. I think I've got a Raggy and Yggy lined up, but I'll hold off on promising that until I know for sure. May be one or two other assorted small things. Audeze will be there too. Also heard from Evan Grimm with Audeze, and he will be coming with a whole gaggle of their products; LCD-2 (may be bringing something else in place of this) LCD-3 (may be bringing something else in place of this) LCD-X LCD-XC LCD-4 LCD4-Z (this one may replace one of the LCD-2’s or LCD-3’s) LCD-MX4 iSINE10 iSINE20 LCDi4
  9. Schiit Audio will be partnering with us to sponsor the May headphone meet! They will be providing some of the funding and some of their current production equipment as well as several items that will be new to the market. The new equipment will not have been introduced in any venue yet. This will be its “sort-of” introduction! Grover Neville of Schiit Audio will be providing us an equipment list as soon as he is able. I will make sure the equipment listings get on this website as soon as I have them. There will be an initial list, which will be added to once Schiit Audio releases the new equipment they will be demonstrating. Grover will be in attendance as Schiit Audio’s representative and will be able to answer any of your questions about the equipment. In addition, Grover will also be contacting other manufacturers that Schiit Audio partners with and asking them to provide equipment also. He specifically mentioned Audeze! Looks like this meet may be a bit bigger than we initially expected! If you're planning on attending let us know on this forum so that we can get an approximate headcount! Remember that we will have both industry and enthusiast exhibitors. Let us know if you plan to exhibit!!

  10. We may have changed the club name to the Atlanta Audio Club, but our commitment to support Southeastern region headphone enthusiasts is still the same. While we can't do another CanLanta event, we will do a meet at the Dunwoody Driving Club where we met last year. Same location, same time... 12N to 5PM. As usual we'll provide space, tables, power, and refreshments! We invite all who have participated in the past to show us your latest and greatest whether you're from the industry or an enthusiast. We'll find room for everyone to show off your "stuff". If you didn't make it last year, here's another chance!! This meet is open to all, and everyone is welcome, from beginners to crusty old veterans of the headphone wars! There will be something of interest for everyone. Keep watching this forum to see who plans on being here!

    Atlanta Headphone Meet - Sunday, May 7, 2017

    I finally got to listen to them toward the end of the meet. I listened using a needle drop that I recorded of a well known London FFRR recording and they were remarkably true to the original recording. The musical balance and quality of sound was very close to what I experience on my home system. Of course, being headphones they can't convey the soundstage width and depth of the home system but I was really impressed with their open and detailed sound. One of the best sounds I heard at the meet.

    There was a cosmetic problem with the initial run and Audeze didn't want them shown when less than perfect. Proud parents! Heard they sound spectacular though! Great pictures and lots of fun at the meet. For many attendees it was their first meet and they were blown away at the equipment that was shown! At the same time it was great to renew old acquaintances and make new ones!

    A last minute reminder that while we will provide multiple AC sources, you will need to bring your own extension cords and power strips!
