    Get your game on!

    @Grahame sorry I will never buy or steal an ubishit game. I will just have to wait until you guys are done.

    @MexicanDragon and @Grahame you both have to get PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Solid game $30 on steam for early access but damn it feels so damn good when you get one of these: http://i.imgur.com/orMgeIy.jpg We can do squads with @TMoney of 4 people. Just Do Et
  3. Been seeing a lot of Duke brackets but I think Arizona is going to take it home this year. http://freebracketchallenge.1.mayhem.cbssports.com/brackets/shareable-bracket/767b66c3b1f045110509e231cd9adb4f56548d2b167f9e7f?randkey=821435&ttag=BC17_tw_sh
  4. Alright all boards have been delivered so this group buy is officially closed. Thank you everyone for your help.
  5. For those who wanted an opinion regarding the Ether E-Stat update: MrSpeakers Ether E-Stat (out of BHSE): Unfortunately I know that the Ether E-Stat still is in the prototype stage and after talking with Dan he had mentioned he hasn't really been working on it due to the focus on the Flow (which to me makes business sense since more people own amps for the ether planar line than the e-stat line). As much as I wish this was good unfortunately it falls way short of living up to the legends the Stax 007 MK1 and 009. It doesn't hold any of the properties that Stax are know
  6. Wikia Impressions: @n3rdling's HE90 Clones (out of BHSE): For those of you who might have missed the opportunity to listen to these you need to put it on your must listen to at the next meet he attends. Personally having never listened to the original Orpheus but loving my 007 MK1 out of the Headamp BHSE and hating the Stax 009's I felt at a loss. I mean the 007 MK1 is my favorite headphone I own but at times want something a little more refined that my HD800 SDR isn't doing. Well enter the HE90 clones I have heard these at one other meet I attended and it was out of t
  7. Impressions from Wikia regarding the Focal line: Focal Elear (out of Eddie Current BW SC): Really well built Solid feel and very comfortable I have to say I did feel like this was a cleaner HD650 and slightly more detailed Would probably describe it as having the best of both worlds between the HD600 and the HD650 Best part about it is you don't need an expensive custom tube amp to remove the HD650's veiled sound At a $999 price point however I feel like another entry into upper mid-fi will hold this headphone back Focal Utopia (out of Eddie
  8. Impressions from Wikia as well: MrSpeakers Ether Flow (out of Eddie Current BW SC): Will just cut to the chase here as no I don't like closed back headphones so I didn't bother listening to the Ether-C Flow and have always felt the Ether open back is miles better than the C. Just personal opinion so I won't be comparing the two. Really solid build quality like Dan's previous Ether iterations. If I have one thing to say that I believe Dan excels at is his understanding of people who have headphones on for hours a day. The Ether Flow like it's predecessors is lightweight
  9. Just a few rides I have done in the past. After death ride tour Colorado I quit cycling. I love the downhill but have always felt i might enjoy the climbing better (especially when I am in the zone). https://www.strava.com/activities/52392823?utm_content=1831823 https://www.strava.com/activities/46393994?utm_content=1831823 https://www.strava.com/activities/54202707?utm_content=1831823 I will say this the century ride I did was probably one of the most mentally taxing things I have ever done. Your mind starts to wander and you find yourself in a strange place. Though it
  10. Damn after seeing this thread so populated makes me really think about potentially getting back into cycling. Let the great bike search begin
  11. Just finished this and wow it was a real eye opener as I was very young when the case happened. Thanks for the recommendation @TMoney
  12. I tried the Razer Blade Stealth at CES this year it's a pretty nice machine. If you are going with that you would definitely need the Razer Core which is really expensive for what it is. That and the performance for what it is according to what some reviewers have said is not as high as expected. Razer Blades though are very nice looking (basically a gaming macbook pro) but I don't know about reliability. Personally I don't trust razer as a company as they have made some pretty cruddy products. I guess what you need to figure out first is what is your budget. I will say no matter

    Actually after reviewing the steam sales you could actually save a few bucks on G2A buying stuff. Pretty sad and get an additional 3% by using the code: NADIA

  15. Would you really hurt your team by making a stupid mistake like that? Regardless Green knew he was in foul trouble. Not defending James here but Green was the one with the most to lose here.
