  1. Hello everyone! Sorry I've been being antisocial, and I'm sorry that I have clearly missed out. This year I won't be Sporting Wood.
  2. FYI - This is totally untrue. Not to defend the 98% of Representative who a Fuckwits, but http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Congressional_pension
  3. In honor of Jimmy Castor who passed away on 1/17/2012 Stay Funky Jimmy!
  4. I believe I've heard the term "Thought Leader" concerning Newt Gingrich, be very afraid http://www.facebook.com/notes/dagblog/newt-gingrich-thought-leader-for-hire/10150467857361203
  5. Isn't it: 9005 time is the Charm
  6. Jesus! What's with the SAM?
  7. The Pink Floyd Discovery 14 record Remastered Box Set. I'm just about done ripping it, so I'll know if it's any better soon. Oh... in the same shipment from Amazon I received a Canon PowerShot SX230HS, but I'm much more Jazzed about the PF Box Set

    On Friday Amazon had a 15 minute Black Friday 15 minute deal on the Canon SX230HS, so I bought it for $149 + 3.99 to upgrade to overnight shipping. Received it today, battery's charging. Glad to hear that you think it's a deal at $199.
  9. Thanks Tom. I'm leaning towards the 3a. I'll give Beth a call next week. Still does the 3a really need the qualifier "for a portable setup"?
  10. Thanks for the input. I have heard the SR009's and the LCD3 so the point was unmooted.
  11. Since I am selling my Big Speaker rig I'm toying with the idea of putting together a nice portable rig. Since Headcase is the known home of the JH Audio mafia I decided to ask here. My primary source (Mobile) is an iPod Classic and at home it is likely to be one of several D/A’s (PWD, Exemplar Audio 25.2, EAD DSP5000) or maybe SPDIF in to the 3a. The systems I’m considering are: JH13 or 16’s with a Fostex HP-P1 JH3a I am a little confused as to the feature set of the 3a. I believe that it would have to use the analog out from the iPod, yes? Otherwise I’d need some kind of iPod dock like the Wadia 170i but portable (does such a thing exist?) to give me a spdif for the digital in of the 3a. I’ve been trying to nail down the differences between the JH13 & JH16. I’ve tried going to peoples profiles to determine what full size cans are favored by the owners of the 13’s and 16’s so that I might extrapolate which model I might prefer, but most owners of both models are headphone collectors and therefore list many different full size cans. So I would ask JH13 and 16 and 3a owners what are your Favorite full sized cans? And considering that I will be using an iPod classic with all Lossless files which solution do you think would give superior results: iPod > Fostex HP-P1 > JH13 or 16 Or iPod > JH3a ----------------- With potentially adding an iPod to Digital SPDIF converter at a later time (too much money at this time) And how would these setups compare to some beats by Dr. Dre? Or maybe some Quiet Comforts?
  12. Nothing worse than over the hill rockers trying to rock, still Ozzy is one funny fucker Maybe they should bill it as a comedy tour.
  13. There's no way that I'd sell them for $3700. and considering that I've received close to a dozen questions regarding the sale in less than 4 hours there seems to be lots of interest.
