I got a Nikon/Crumpler 7 Million Dollar Home free for buying the D750. It is probably worth about half of what I paid to trade in my D800 for the D750 so I'm not complaining! Crazy thing is, it will fit the Bigma! If I do use it for that though, I wont be carrying it far.  
Guys, Jason doesn't do comparisons with competitors, so can I suggest that this discussion would be better suited for elsewhere?
Many of these arguments would be resolved if people posted the kind of music they were listening to and roughly how loud when posting impressions. Then it'd become pretty clear what is going on.   There was a guy on another thread annoying the heck out of everyone because he was listening with a pair of HD-800s out of an iPhone (or something along those lines). People were falling over themselves telling him he needed better gear, not surprisingly. When he later compared...

 Mac owner here, since the '80s. The best I can do is speak in a high-pitched voice, sorry.  True story: I used to run a Mac-related IRC channel, among the membership of which were a number of friends who indeed had had a male to female sex change. They owned Macs before that though.   Re: Ubuntu: If the install screws up, how do you recover it?  
 I was talking to someone in the industry last time I was in LA about that album. The gist of what I was told was in effect that Beck uses gear to generate the sound effects on his albums that isn't high res, but because it makes the sound he wants in the music. It was definitely a poor choice of an album to advertise as high res. Definitely not Beck's fault in this, he just made the music he wanted to make.  I guess the industry is just going to keep shooting itself in...
Guys, just a reminder about the topic of this thread. If you want to discuss audio mastering (which is a very interesting topic) then please either start a thread or I can split the discussion off into a new one.
  I took the RX100II with me on a long drive through the country after the rain.
 Not really. I think the X5 is a nice IEM DAP, but fairly poor with full-sized headphones. That is quite often I think why people buy it with the E12 (?) amp.
A blob might have been overstating things I guess. On at least one live recording of Jeff Buckley, if I use my HD-800s out of the FiiO X5 (or with the HD600 and HD650 back when I owned them, with amps of differing quality) it sounds like I'm at the back of the audience, with everything happening in front of me. Out of the Schiit Valhalla or the more expensive amps or DAPs I have here, it sounds like I'm in the middle of the audience. If you happen across someone with an X5...
