A visit to Bill and OJ's table had the very familiar feel...a home base for a headphone geek like me.

Milos' (N3rdling) table was yet another display of unobtainium on a member table. A HeadAmp Aristaeus, Stax DAC-X2t, and Sony MDR-R10 were among his delights.

Marv has also been a huge influence on the evolving vibe of the headphone enthusiast world. He founded, which has become an important place for fairly advanced headphone enthusiasts to have dialog that strives to find a middle way between objectivism and subjectivism.

Ben (Zashoomin on Head-Fi) is a fun, enthusiastic, and outgoing guy. He's been in the hobby for less than two years and has found himself swept up in the DIY electronics part of the activity. With one exception the list of amps in his profile at Head-Fi reads like a who's who of the DIY headphone amp world.

Not doing my normal show vendor reports this time, I think it best to focus on the community and talk about that. It's the most important thing about CanJam SoCal 2015, in my opinion.

Register to win an Audioengine B2 Bluetooth Speaker (MSRP $299) we are giving away.

According to the company:

"The audio quality of most Bluetooth products isn't usually very inspiring and their limited range can be frustrating. The B2 solves these problems by implementing the aptX codec, which is a high-quality audio converter designed specifically for audio. The B2 also has special circuitry and a precision-tuned antenna to extend the wireless range, providing much more versatility than other Bluetooth speakers."

[This sweepstakes is now closed.]

...a spine tingling run of notes starting at 2:28 in which you can hear audience members gasp at the crescendo of notes and intensity. I was swept right along until, as the song wound down, I opened my eyes to see, yet again, my fingers hovering motionless above the keyboard.

"Damit, I'm not going to get anything done with this Pono gadget playing in my ears."

And then it hit me, the Pono Player was delivering exactly what it promised: a deep connection with the music.

Famed recordist and mastering engineer Bob Katz is a headphone enthusiast...who knew?

Bob recently offered to write a series of articles for InnerFidelity readers on his recent adventures with headphones. I just couldn't turn down an opportunity for a peak at our favorite head-worn audio device through his venerable ears.

Welcome, Bob!

You've seen me play with Photoshop a bit for my InnerFidelity Updates. I had no idea it could get you in this much trouble!
