  1. Is the second pic showing a transparent cover on the amp?
  2. Thanks. Do you use any resistors across the speaker taps?
  3. Do you drive your planars directly off the amp's speaker taps or via the headphone jack?
  4. Now we need to know when these are available
  5. Thanks! Somehow I don't see this model whilst searching through the g shock website
  6. Can u share the model number for this piece? Interesting to see the word Gaussman on it. Anti magnetic?
  7. Please share some impressions when you do get to audition the cans. Thanks
  8. Nice quality strap from Omega indeed
  9. That Omega looks droolicious!
  10. Thanks for the advice on the bronze case. Speaking of Speedys, I do have to add that the FOIS is also within the same price point and it looks nice as well as having the broad arrow hands that I prefer. Do you reckon it's possible to get the omega service centre to regulate the FOIS to cosc levels of accuracy? Just a crazy thought..
  11. The B&R Divers look nice and unique although at its retail price, i could get a pre-owned basic Rolex (OP39 blue dial) but the Rolex would look really, really pedestrian beside it. The new Autavia Isograph looks interesting but being a Tag, i do find them over priced here. As for the Zenith, i actually prefer the skeleton version. Nice open worked dial, thin profile, titanium case and the cool blue croc/rubber strap has me drooling over it. Difficult choice for sure, both coming in at a similar price point.
  12. First time chiming in here. Been reading the Legend of the Condor Heroes (English translated version) by Jin Yong (pen name of Louis Cha who departed recently) Book I. A classic novel of martial arts intrigue. Fast paced and manages to hold my attention, which tends to get very short most of the time :p
  13. Thanks for that nice bit of history on the watches. Of all the Speedys, i prefer the broad arrow handed ones like the FOIS. Not too much of a fan of the pencil hands. But a nice watch with a lot of history and what the watch guys say "providence" behind them On another note, i'm now looking at the new Bell & Ross green dialed Bronze Diver BR 03-92 and the Zenith Defy Classic Skeleton. Anyone have comments/opinions (good or bad) about both these watches? Both are within my budget and though not a Rolex or Omega, they seem to catch my eye more than the others,..
  14. Being a watch noob, i can't tell what's the difference between the 2 Speedys haha
  15. So, when are these available for public purchase?
  16. Oh well...that's just a bummer. I'd prefer something with lesser hassle in terms of maintenance. Or buy and throw like a Swatch :p
  17. Yes, the Spring Drive does have a good reputation for high accuracy. Only issue is we don't have an authorised dealer locally who could service SDs should any issues arise so that is a consideration. Point taken. Good enough for space = good enough for earth Thus far, only the snow flake dial has captured by interest..the others are pretty...unexciting. I don't doubt the craftsmanship that goes into making these watches but somehow, their simplicity is not attracting me to them, yet.
  18. Thanks for the feedback, HS. Looks like a very nice first Omega watch to have with an affordable entry price. Only quibble is it doesn't have a clear case back I'm really not familiar at all with movements except for hearing common names like ETA. I suppose a slight drift in accuracy is very well acceptable even quartz watches are not entirely accurate. It's just the consistency that I'm most concerned about more so if u buy an expensive watch and it doesn't tell me accurate time. Well, I do appreciate that some buy watches not to tell time ?
  19. Anyone with a Speedy FOIS can chime in as to its accuracy over time? I understand its using one of its earlier calibres and not the later in-house movements, which are COSC certified. The FOIS has a nice arrow hands that i prefer but am a bit anal in terms of accuracy over time..
  20. Is it ready for orders?
  21. Agreed. We just need to be patient. Too many wrists wearing the same sport Rolex models..
  22. Maybe one day my Swatch watches will fetch a fortune at auctions ?
  23. I'd accept it if it were a Patek but didn't expect Omegas to fetch such insane amounts of money
  24. Lol.. Are these vintages really that valuable?? That's an obscene bid price..
