Will anyone be attending CanJam NYC this year. I just purchased my ticket and will be booking my hotel and flight later on today or tomorrow. I plan on being there from Feb 14-17.
I may or may not be there, the world will never know
We have a limited number of rooms available at a discounted rate of $264/night.
Ha! Heh heh Yeah… No. Will not be attending. My wallet is still trying to recover from my set up re-vamp.
Is there a equivalent can jam in LA?
There is the SoCal canjam
And a fair amount of other shows too
Gonna do my best to get to this one
I should be back in Europe by June i might see ya there! This one in NYC will be my first. I have wanted to go for years now. Also, this is the first time i decided to not creep around the forums and actually be a member lol…
I used Expedia and called in my order. I got a hotel about 3 blocks away and the flight with a 4 day 3 night stay for 800$. Some of the other options even the one it is being held at were about 300-500$ more. I can walk to it i mean it is New York.
I think I spent $1200-1500 upgrading my desk setup in my dorm room… I don’t think it can take a weekend trip down from Maine along with a couple nights in NYC.
I was dead set on a pair of ZMF Verite or Aeolus but i find i have some hearing/sibilance issues that might come up in either of these lines. So instead of spending 1800$-2700$ on a pair. I wanted to go to CanJam and test out as many headphones as i could to see what the results are. My email is full of nothing but amazon links for purchases and returns . I kind of want to stop that from happening.
Well… From new monitor, powered monitors, TA-10, XD-05, CPU, GPU, pre-amp, bt5 sender/reciever, a number of cables/adapters, Symbio W eartips, Prota Pros… Sadly shit adds up, and I did not wanna stick with cheap logitech speakers and onboard audio with a portable amp. Shrugs
I was in the same place. I made a post on what did you buy today a week or so ago. Had to revamp my tech bag and went all out. I travel a good bit and needed a powerhouse in a bag.
What Monitor/CPU/GPU did you decide on.
I had a Q5s THX AAA but decided to return it and pick up the BTR5 for portability and get a stand alone desk DAC/AMP.
Sometimes I feel M0N is Zeos’ 3rd alias. Since the ‘Zeos’ alias has been exposed so much already. Lol
Overview of CanJam NYC 2020.
Lots of new gear shown.
I’m especially curious about the new Drop/ifi Dac, Drop CAN 6XX. Looks really promising.
There ain’t shit in Ohio besides <------ this guy jamming out in his room, lol.
I am so disappointed i had to cancel my trip out to NYC there is so much i wanted to check out. Looks like a good bit of tech is going to leak into the lower market segment. The iFi Dac/Amp stack looks interesting paired with the 6xx. Also the iFi Hip Dac looks like it will be a decent portable options compared to the BTR5 and Q5s.
Ifi is really hitting the lower end market pretty hard. They make generally well regarded products, and their use of Burr Brown chips is relatively unique, and a market differentiator.
Kudos to them.
I own the iFi Micro iDSD Black Label and absolutely adore its versatility and power. My upgrade path was to get a chance and listen to the Verite LTD open/closed before i pull the trigger on a purchase. M0N did suggest a Tuba Amp to pair with the iFi MiDSDBL. I was torn between the Aeolus LTD and the Verite and now with the closed backs being coveted it is becoming harder without a proper audition.
Currently have HD660s - I do really enjoy this sound over the rest of the HD6
Argons on the way
