I can't imagine stuff sounding better than it does now.
get an x-fi based card and a pair of ath-a500 or hd555 and you'll notice! you'll also have an edge in fps because you'll be able to hear people moving around corners and know where they are.

Its ghetto and alive!

Now I don't have to worry about the amp blowing my headphones out if the computer locks up lol. Volume control is the one on top. I didn't feel like messing with the front panel because it was too thick for the volumite without an extension.

The F1 looks awesome Matt, along with the rest of the setup. Just need a solid CDP transport now (boo pc lol) .

Your rig progressed so fast it's hard to believe the level you're at already. What took me almost 2 years to figure out has taken you like 6 months.

Lol never! I love having my pc hooked up so I can just click through music whenever I want. I'll just drag the ps3 out for meets since those will only happen 2-3 times a year.

I think it was more blind luck instead of figuring it out lol. When I was looking for a new dac, the buffalo just happened to pop up used on head-fi. The K1000 just had so many great reviews and I liked akg so I stuck with them. The F1 is the only actual intelligent decision I made. I was thinking of building a B22 and read the F1 is the best for driver control on lower impedance cans/speakers. You know from all the pm's back and forth that I was all over the place lol. I really think I was just lucky.

The Jersey meet was fun. Aura you missed out. It was smallish at only around 25 people, but there was some good gear and honestly I would prefer meets about this size because there's lots of gear and fewer people talking

Anyway, this is what I posted in the impressions thread. I was only there for about 4 hours.

Thanks for having me everyone, it was great meeting all of you. Maybe I can spend some more time next year (hopefully) and bring some gear as well.

I really wanted to give both the HD800 and HP2 a listen and I was not disappointed with either. The HP2 are great sounding cans for the money and they look great. I must admit I'm a bit torn on this headphone mostly because I didn't order a pair and now new ones are no longer available. Yes, they are a can that I would love to have, but I'm ok with the fact that I don't have a pair coming.
The HD800's are very good. I probably enjoyed them the most of any other headphone at the meet. I listened to them driven by I believe it was the WA22. Honestly, if I listened to headphones more frequently I would be seriously considering getting a pair in the near future. As it is, I could live with them, but just not sure I could swallow the price.
I mostly just brought my HD580's around to different rigs focusing primarily on single ended amps instead of the few balanced amps with a single ended output. Of the amps at the meet I enjoyed the WA5 the most. It's a great amp and is a bit better than my current amp especially in the low frequency where it has more weight and accuracy. I would have liked to do a side-by-side comparison. Unfortunately, it is quite a bit more expensive than I have invested in my current amp, but if I ever sell my inefficient speakers for something a bit easier to drive I might have to get one just to de-clutter and use as both a speaker and headphone amp.
