  1. As I said on Head-Fi, must be a NH thing to prefer 2 wheels to 4.
  2. Can you visit Headwize at work? Here's the clown pulling the same stuff there too.
  3. I can only assume that you are aware of this thread. And I believe that HR recently revisited the pricing of the modules and serveral other upgrades in their lineup.
  4. Oh...god....I'm crying laughing at that picture...
  5. Only real item of interest that I see is allegedly Mikhail showed something to a couple of members that for now is an off-books project that cannot be discussed... Our own philodox has knowledge, maybe he'll share in the confines of the Casino?
  6. According to a conversation I overheard Sunday this is one of the reasons they won't be available for 6 weeks, they're still working on the packaging, seriously. And I can't remember who said it but someone close by said, "John, don't worry about it. I get pizza every Friday I don't need another box from you."
  7. And a few of us were wondering what this new high-end Grado will do to the prices of the so called "ultimate" Grados... This may be the one measurable impact of the new cans on the used market as I don't expect it'll do much to the lower end cans.
  8. Hey, that's my red jumper wire you're picking on . Ray broke the resistor setting up the amp before the meet. He was running around asking if anyone had a DMM he could use. I had brought mine figuring that something of mine would likely blow up during the meet so I let him use it and when he found the broken resistor he asked if I had a jumper, which I did so I gave it to him. I didn't get a chance to hear the amp as it was one of the more popular places at the meet and knowing what it would likely cost made it a non-issue for me.
  9. John said it has new drivers in it. Rumors put the price just south of $1k.
  10. Variety = spice of life. If you can afford it, keep 2, if you'd rather use the $$ for something else there's no shame in one.
  11. We can have a little K340 party with it .
  12. Both, but don't get to either much anymore since moving to the S4. Local wheeling space dried up in the course of a year which also prompted the sale of the ZJ, not to mentoin the 12mpg \. Nate
  13. GE, My 98ZJ used to roll on 32s, BB+OME suspension and such. In the end it proved to be a platform that just didn't seem to handle abuse very well , I'm sure longarms and such would have cured most of its ills but it was my DD and that wasn't in the cards. My other $$$ sucking hobbies include: photography (i'm a hack w/ my D70 and small used lens collection) and of course this... 2000 Triumph Sprint RS - lightly modded w/ 21k on the clock (90% mine)

    I like salt. Pretzles are so good. Eat them, yum.

    Bwaaaaaaaaaaahahahahaha! You talkin' bout my mom!?!?!
  16. Well, the National Meet sure is shaping up to be a doozy in product announcement terms, not that I can blame anyone with half a business mind for doing it that way. With HR's "new stuff" and Resistor-Ray's Balanced Bomber it won't be lacking, that's for sure. I wonder if Single Power will bring the SS amp I've been hearing about? Nate
  17. Well, I for one hope to see you there, gear or no gear. I hope we all leave the Head-Fi drama at home and are able to just kick back, listen to some wickedly good headphone rigs and realize that we might just be there for the start of something special in the headphone world. I wonder what the first SEMA was like? Nate
  18. This is my rig as I prepare to move to a new house. It's about 90% DIY with the exception of the transport (which has been DIY modded) and the Senn 600s that it is driving. Other than that, cables, amp and DAC were all built by me. Oh and the digital cable was built by a friend.
  19. If you like the Denon house sound you could look for something like this. That's assuming that you're cool with going the used route, otherwise in your budget are the typical things like a Music Hall CD-25 and players of that ilk. Nate
  20. Well, speaking from the perspective of someone who has rolled Diamond Buffers into several different amps that previously used chip buffers the difference has been the same each time. Better, more refined sonics at all frequency levels with the most pronounced coming at the lower end with cleaner, tighter bass that has better extension. Can't wait to hear your version Tyll! And as far as the HA-2 goes, well that just makes me nervous... Nate
  21. Oh dear... is my friend Pete involved? Muaaaahahahaha, MUUUAAHAHAHHAHA!
  22. I think you'd be shocked to learn how little less the stand-alone Max DAC would likely cost. At the last Boston Meet I cornered Tyll for a while and chatted about stuff like this and he offered what I thought was a pretty reasonable explanation of why things are the way they are and why they are likely to stay that way for the foreseeable future. Nate
  23. I think a smaller Desktop PS is in the works. While it can run 6 amps at once a single-unit version isn't going to cost that much less. Nate
  24. A little bird told me that even if KG doesn't spill the beans we won't be waiting that long to find out what's up with Operation Tiffany.
