San Jose, CA meet November 26, 2016

Postby amb » November 22nd, 2016, 4:58 am

There is a headphones/gear meet this upcoming Saturday November 26 in San Jose, CA., from 10am to 4pm. The location is at the Alum Rock Branch Library. Admission is free. Full info can be found in this thread:

http://www.head-fi.org/t/824498/finally ... e-the-date

I will be attending and demo'ing the following gear:

- Sennheiser HD800 and HD600 headphones
- AMB β22 amplifier
- AMB γ3 high resolution DAC
- AMB γ2 compact high performance DAC
- AMB γ1.5 miniature high-res USB DAC + headphone amp
- AMB γ1 miniature DAC
- AMB Mini³ portable headphone amplifier
- AMB κDCX-enhanced Behringer DCX2496 DSP electronic crossover
- laptop computer as music source

Unlike other head-fi official meets, this one is not filled with commercial vendors. It's more of a member's meet, the way it used to be.

I invite Northern California/San Francisco Bay Area people to attend, whether you have gear to show or not. If you're coming from farther away, then even better!

A photo gallery of the meet, as taken from my camera, is here:

The meet was sparsely attended, probably due to the rainy weather, but a good time was had by all. I had a listening session on my system comparing the Sennheiser HD800 vs. HD800S. There are things to like about each, and they are different. The HD800s upper midrange and treble is not as bright as the HD800, which is good, but somehow the spacious imaging of the HD800 shrank down in the HD800S. I noticed some difference in the ear padding, maybe that's why. It would be interesting to see what happens if HD800 ear pads are installed on the HD800S.
