I was a student many, many years ago. I saved or got my parents to buy me stuff for birthdays and x-mas. Also companies releasing new equipment often sell samples at a reduced price. I bought a sample AUDIOTAILOR HM-1 for review for a substantially reduced price. That reminds me, have you thought about the AUDIOTAILOR JADE - great little amp!
Haha...yeah it is and I've stopped working now, so it's really hard. My parents don't exactly buy me anything actually. lol. My mother doesn't really believe in celebrating birthdays so errr...yeah. The first 'present' I ever got was last year. haha...I'm only halfway through my course and I have another 3 years to go. Shrugs. I really really love music, but I don't have the time to go as in depth as everyone else though I wish I had the intellect and money to do it!
Just had a look at the Jade, interesting proposition that and Skylab gave it a decent review as well from my quick skim through. I might have a look at it. $300 + shipping though and it weighs a fair bit. lol. Was hoping not to overstep $250, let alone $300. Damn this is another expensive hobby! And I wanted to pick up photography at some point too.
