  1. After talking with somebody fairly extensively about the topology and circuitry of the amp, seems it's like a PPAv2 (or any other PPL amp), but slightly tweaked. What's the consensus around here for one? Is it worth the asking price over a PPAv2? What are the sonic differences between the two? I've heard a Lisa, but not the PPAv2...just wondering if it's worth supporting the DIY community or supporting somebody who doesn't really hold back his designs to the DIY community. http://www.esnips.com/doc/837045c1-25a0-4004-b933-7b9f9c842bc0/LISA-III-New-Front-Panel-019 I like how slender th
  2. Carbon is sexy....the case is about the same size as the iPod itself and comes with a screen protector too.
  3. Anybody own these? $158 recable for a set of $25 cans. I'm not being skeptical or facetious, I really am curious on the differences.
  4. Meh...who cares about that? Never said I wanted a pair, just said I wanted to know how they sound....
  5. Who has heard or owns them? Pretty premium price...I'm fairly eager to know how they sound...
  6. Australian beers...I'll check that out next time I goto Total Wine or World Market. ANy specific ones?
  7. Which is your preference? I noticed most people fall one way or the other. I personally HATE beer. It's disgusting and flavorless IMO. I can tolerate DARK DARK beer, like Mackeson XXX and Gulden Draak, mainly because they're so damn dark...but otherwise, I pass on Bud, Miller and Heiny..blah. I personally prefer liqour... 4 Horsemen, Svedka on the rocks and mixed girly drinks hit the spot...
  8. I figure this'll get any kind bugs and server issues sorted out by posting this on the forums to get our server loaded. And for whatever reason, I don't get bugs on my end viewing with Safari, IE, Firefox or Opera...low and behold, somebody will get one(which I need to know about)....as it always happens. http://www.fitforkingsclothing.com It's STUPID simple and STUPID basic. We decided against anything even remotely complicated and wanted to keep a simple theme for things to be "off center" as we're both a little, well, off center, lol. We used some of our friends and random people
  9. I suggested the same thing way back when, and got a nasty gram from adminz...difference is, I singled out RSA. I was told in was inappropriate and that it would be very difficult for a manufacturer to do such a thing....
  10. ^ I guess that's what I'm getting at. You can still get the sense of impact from a bass drum hit or bassline and it not be bloated or screw up the entire spectrum of sound. Like anything, it just has to be executed right. You don't have to necessarily "feel" it, but the note itself, can be achieved. I'm a concert kinda guy, and a good example for me is when I goto watch Tiger Army play. The upright bass is rediculous, and even at crappy acoustic set-up venues, you still get the sense of impact that guy has when he plays. I've gotten that same feeling when listening to SE530's out of a Por
  11. nice.....I'm gonna go into my kitchen and do it. WOnder how much battery life it gives you?
  12. This isn't directed at anybody, but I find it kinda humorous that people want it to sound as life-like and accurate to the live performance as possible, yet, when a headphone replicates a hard hitting impactful bassline it's heard as 'too bass heavy'. Example? People revel and awe at the sound of a K701 or HD600, and although they sound organic and realistic, IMO, they lack the hard hitting impact bass that a cello, bass drum hit, upright bass, or slap-bass guitar give you when you heard them live. Yet, people look for a "neutral" phone when looking for cans, but in a live performance, the
  13. What makes the vintage Grado's special compared to the current ones? I'm not knocking anything, I just really don't know the differences.
  14. $6-8 covers the shirt. I just said I can do it for $4-6 depending quantity and colors. So it still looks like my higher price is on par with your higher one. $35 too much? THAT'S INCLUDING DIGITIZATION(mostly for embroidery). Did you ever read that I was charging digitization fees? Um...NO. That's cause I don't charge them. Lets see anybody else do that. That $35 is usually waived if the file comes to me ready to print, but most people come to us with an idea, a couple random pictures and ask for a design to be made. You said yourself, he's not charging you because he knows you'll be o
  15. I'm still here. Called out in the T-Shirt thread? How? For being so closely knit, I didn't even know you were in existence at the Tampa meet. Pretty close knit eh? I didn't see any women there, nor have I ever seen you....And it's not like I was wandering all over the place and we happenned to miss each other, I sat on the fucking couch the whole time and listened to portables, his Denon table and the Orpheus'....so uh, for being so closely knit, I sure as fuck didn't see you anywhere. I'm going to call you....nevermind.
  16. It was the one around the time I registered on HF. I didn't know anybody. I remember Nightwoundstime commenting about it when we were in the Tampa meet and that's how we actually met was in our distaste on how we both thought that switch was a sham.
  17. At the meet I was at he was answering tech questions, with the exception of op-amps used. Granted they mainly consisted of battery life and why he chose the batteries he did, but tech questions none the less. I expected no different on a forum. I also asked if the battery were user replaceable. Most likely a simple answer, and DEFINITLY not a "tech question". I don't want to have to rely on his ass to change out a fucking battery. How the fuck am I supposed to know he doesn't answer tech questions on a forum? Hmm...answering questions in person, but not on a forum, especially on the
  18. Meh...what's in a name? Hell, I didn't even know you were a mod till just now...that's how insignificant/meaningless those titles are to me... My opinion of Ray was before I came to head-case, however short it were, it's still crap that he can't answer a question, especially if it means a sale. I'm not in the financial position to say "meh, I'll drop $500 to see if I like it..." I'de expect ANY question asked to be answered...meh...
  19. I'm calling him a douchebag cause I've sent him PMs on other forums, as well as eMails WEEKS before the outtage of Head-Fi, which lasted 3 weeks. I've gotten not even "I'll get back to you when I'm not so busy" reply. Which atleast, would have been somewhat understandable. I guess you can call my "singing him praise" in ignorance. Sure, I own an original Hornet and love it, but that doesn't say I respect the guy on a personal level. Especially after getting ignored on several fronts. After I've started to read about his whining (not just hear-say, but the posts themselves) whenever says ANY
  20. Funny how he can post an update, but chooses to ignore any questions he has about the tech side of the amp...douchebag.
  21. Heh, it says I have 31 pms, but I goto both my sent and inbox and ther are zero. Still says I have 31 stored ven after I checked both of them...
  22. Of course there's the obvious "I want $$$$" answer, but realisticly speaking, what should I tell her? She's familiar with the cost/nature of the hobby, but I don't want to completely stray her away from ever buying me anything audio related ever again with some extravagant want. So what should I tell her I want? It would be for something primarily used at home or when on the putor like now. But I would occasionally take it out wherever. Again, not expensive. So I was thinking along the lines of lower end Grados, K240, HD555, K81DJ, RP21, RP22,etc. Something lower end that doesn't giv
  23. I know you were Screen charges are $35. But we also don't charge a digitization fee if it's FAIRLY simple. Now if you're wanting to get all crazy with halftones..... But we're able to keep costs down cause we have no overhead, no other real staff, and everything is paid for.
  24. He's a liar...it's still not up
