Singapore Headphone Meet 2007 Impressions!

Recommended Posts

First of all a BIG thank you to all of you.

Without you guys this meet wouldn't have been such a success!

 

Ok so my b22 power supply went up in smoke for a moment :sweat:

But luckily I got it to work in a matter of minutes.

No real damage, only one blackened resistor :x

Hope you guys had a good time. Rock on. :party:

 

Started this thread for meet impressions and pics.

SO POST AWAY!

Got home and slept... Was tired cuz i work at night. Gotta leave for work so i'll post my impressions tmr maybe.

 

It was good to meet up with new faces and some old ones (no pun intended =p) as well....

 

I think it was a rather successful meet as it was in a very quiet area and we had lots of unused space!

It was great success and thanks to everyone for coming, without you guys it won't be so successful. The function rooms were freezing cool, enough space for people walking around and all that. Besides was swimming pool but I was surprised gfgfmoses didn't send me those photos with bikini babes. :grin:

 

Here are some pictures for you guys, taken by gfgfmoses' Canon EOS 30D :DD

 

So it begins, gears setting up and all that....

Robin's Ayre CX-7e CDP, it was a great player, crisp, clear, see-right-through-the-soundstage end of things...

Firstly thanks to those who coordinated and hosted the meet. It was a good one with plenty of space and equipment. The only weird thing that happened was when someone started to play music through speakers.. :rclxub:
