  1. 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
  2. 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!
  3. 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!
  4. 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
  5. 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!!

  6. 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!

  7. 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.
  8. Atlanta Headphone Meet - Sunday, May 7, 2017

    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!
  10. Atlanta Headphone Meet - Sunday, May 7, 2017

    Lee Scoggins is bringing Audeze Sine Deluxe.

    When are you arriving, leaving? Do you plan on a rental car? Do you have friends here that can put you up. Would you like to have a club member help with local transportation or lodging. Email me directly. jhm3 at bellsouth dot net John

    I assume you are talking about CanLanta 2016... no raffle this year!
  13. Atlanta Headphone Meet - Sunday, May 7, 2017

    I have just updated this event information on our website. I have provided a list of the attendees as I understand it today. I recommend you click on the link provided and review the information. If it is not correct I will fix it. If I don't hear from you I'll assume it IS correct. Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday!! https://a-vcoa.clubexpress.com/content.aspx?page_id=87&club_id=290418&item_id=625137 John John Morrison, President, Founding Member Audio-Video Club of Atlanta Direct: 770-330-3919 Fax: 1-866-891-3690 mailto:jhm3@bellsouth.net http://www.a-vcoa.org
  14. Atlanta Headphone Meet - Sunday, May 7, 2017

    I originally felt the same way. Then I realized that in most of the smaller meets I have been to, the exhibitors and listeners tended to gravitate to the same side of the table when listening. I had someone on another headphone forum tell me he had been in meets with round tables that worked well. People flowed around the edge of the tables. It looks as though we will have to rent a number of 6x30s anyway, so there will probably be both. In your case, I'm sure we'll be able to provide a couple of 6x30s or the equivalent.
  15. Atlanta Headphone Meet - Sunday, May 7, 2017

    I need a quick opinion. The Dunwoody North Driving Club (DNDC) has a number of round tables capable of seating 8-10 people in a banquet type situation. I had planned on renting a number of 6 foot by 30 inch rectangular tables for this event. However, some of us are thinking that the round tables would work. Does anyone have any experience in using these tables for a headphone meet? Do you have an opinion about using them? They are large and as many as two to three exhibitors might share one to show off their system. And, we have enough that we think the 5 or so vendors will be able to have one maybe two tables if necessary. Let me know your thoughts on this ASAP. If we can use the round tables, it will save us some money and aggravation! John
