  1. You also might consider the P2V2. Comes with a lithium cell and a charger for the given price. Design and form factor might be a turnoff.
  2. Even if the LCD-3 costs a kilo more? I'd be content with my r2, after all they are in different weight categories. Now only we need to see if LOTUS membranes justify the price difference. And the question of reliability.
  3. What's the only headphone you would take with you on a desert island...
  4. Seems that Audeze got wiser. Still despite the price LCD-2 sold like hot pie.
  5. Also- Starts shipping 11-11-11 Price - $1945.00
  6. Now they just need to give a pair to WarriorAnt so history can repeat itself. Also I'm not sure if I like the new look.
  7. Pictorials for your viewing pleasure.

    Yay, for cheaper rev. 2!

    Battlefield 3

    One thing that bothers me in the BF and other games is the reduced explosive damage radius of some weapons. I think they should try to emulate the dynamics of explosions indoors, so that when something explodes in a narrow corridor the field of the blast extends both directions. Not just the same globe around the point of detonation. Also I don't see much fragmentation from grenades. They should implement defensive grenades that employ additional fragmentation with a longer but more random kill radius. And yeah, I know that in essence it's just a game with different tools of playing masked behind loosely modeled real world weapons. P.S. They also should let you upgrade the flashlight so that you could engage a strobing mode to confuse enemies. And induce some epileptic seizures...

    Battlefield 3

    IMO the only thing where BF was inferior to COD is gunplay but now it seems a lot better. At least I see that they are putting some sweat in it. And don't get me started on the single player, COD2 was the game where my satisfaction with killing the opposition took a serious plunge. First of all- no single enemy really present a serious threat and second- the health regen. Gone are the days of Half-life low health creeping around and avoiding any damage. The gaming industry is afraid to challenge- both in the way of difficulty and in storytelling. All in fear that someone might not get past a certain area or even not buy the damn disc. When was the last time you could not finish a modern game?
  11. Someone might say that Stax SR-404LE outmeasures the SR-507. Seen them at similar prices at the HF. Now to audition some...
  12. More like- "Kонечно, ёб' твою!"
  13. Well, those aren't from the land of Birgir (the trees should be a dead giveaway), those are from my home country- Latvia and the dry dock is from Finland (from the Sea Fortress). But Icelandic pics should follow shortly, haven't got myself to sort them out.
  14. The Bad Plus - For All I Care. Some of the best jazz renditions of good songs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sX_Iij8Eyts
  15. I'm a bit cautious when getting modern remasters of classic records. Most of the time they end up being louder and with a narrow dynamic range. Maybe I'm wrong. I sure hope so.
  16. I think that without Steve Jobs we would not have the popular interest in portable audio and headphones that we have today. Every death is a loss. RIP.
  17. Head-fi, of course. Still- judging from the whole "logos" behind the amp lukewarm should be okay. The consensus is that it is a "wire-with-gain" and a bit too large to be considered portable. http://www.head-fi.org/search.php?search=%22Objective+2%22+amp
  18. I was recently searching for opinions about this amp and the reviews are lukewarm. Not the end-all amp that was promised. And the size seems a bit to large for portable use. Maybe I'll build one when I get home, or a Dynalo, hehe...
  19. Thanks, Spritzer- I wasn't sure about how long should I lurk and click on a certain link in high ranking member signatures to be deemed postworthy. But so far so good. My blundering hasn't broken any vases or anything, right? And yeah, we could try the RS-1 and maybe it'll be better because of my now low hopes. To be honest I'm a bit suspicious how much one can improve a certain design by adding better matched drivers, cups of wood and a fancier headband. But still, I can't imagine not liking the sound. At least if the records are right. In any case thanks for showing this oasis in the usual digital noise.
  20. Well, removing the button was out of the question, but in any case I'm not telling that the sound I was hearing seemed bad in any way (maybe the bass qty.). It's just that maybe I got my hopes up to high or maybe I did not have enough time with them or my source was sucky. Beats me. I would trade my SR80i for them no questions asked, but I felt that 400$ difference should yield something more. Regarding the amplification- they were fed through a VERY special M3 so juice was plenty. And I'm comparing them to an unamped SR80i. Though I have a hard time justifying amping for my Grado. Volume seems more than enough.
