Sorry, in my original post I wrote 12th ~ 14th - obviously a brain dead moment.  I fixed the post.
Thanks,
Steve

Steve,
Will I be able to audition the CSP2+ and Taboo with my headphones at the fest? I know you have gear all over the place but wondering if you can make a corner for headphone users. I have the zenhead now but would really like to hear my headphones with tube gear. Maybe even put the zenhead next to them so one can audition all three with their headphones. Just an idea. My headphones are 50ohm so trying to figure out which tube amp would be better.
Thanks,
John

Put aside some ZEN monoblocks and a SELECT for me to listen to.

RR, as if you don't have enough Decware amps.....


John, If you want to audition a particular set up, we will make every effort to make that happen. There are other rooms within the building we can set you up in for your audition. Last year a couple of guys used Steve's shipping room and set up a whole system. Room acoustics not being good for that, but for a headphone audition, the room is perfect.

See you all at the fest....

Thanks ZYGI, I can't wait to try this. Right now I am playing all my files through an Ipod at work, WAV files. I will bring that, the head phones, and my cables to listen to them. It will be interesting to see how the sound compares to each other with the different amps.

deucekazoo,
If you really want your Ipod to pop, you need a dock that bypasses the internal DAC. Then play it through a good DAC. Then into the CSP2+ and Taboo. You will be suprised! The $2 DAC in the Ipod can be vastly improved.

Donnie,
Thanks for the recommendation but you do realize the components you just listed would come with a nice 3K+ price tag.  :D
Right now I am trying to keep it simple. I am getting great sound with the Zenhead connected directly but just want to try the tubes to see the difference. I was hoping that I would like the CSP2 or the Taboo alone more than the Zenhead and not together. I could see it now, falling in love with the combo. It sucks being broke.  :'(
Maybe you can bring your dock to the fest if you are comming. I have a cheaper DAC i can bring to try things out. It should be fun.
