You can also upload the pics to a website like photobucket, then just post links to the pics.

Another free tool for resizing/editing images is Google Picasa:

thank you all, when I get home from work tonight I will post the pictures
(such as they are). It is very cute: the blue led light on the Heed and Xenos
match in color.

Gotta gez them pics!

I've used imageshack:http://imageshack.us/. I think it's easy to use their resize feature. Hope it works.

I used Irfanview and when I downsized the pix to 25.0 KB they looked dreadful.
A member was nice enough to email me and offer to photoshop them if I would email the pix to him. I feel rather incompetent here. I see such nice photos in other threads, I can't believe they are only 25.0KB in size.

Neither do I. I've been wondering about that too.

Wayne why don't you use? http://xs.to/ after you post in XS you can then use the feature of posting a thumbnail which when clicked upon it links you to their site and a new page opens up with the full size picture. Using this method you do not bog down Head Fi and can still get good size pictures. For example:

Miguel, excellent idea. Thanks as always.

Post burn in: The Xenos really did not change during the burn in. It is the first
amplifier I have owned that did not. The Heed and Microamp changed a great deal. The Heed had increased soundstage, tighter bass and better 3D layering.
The Microamp grew warmer and more responsive to the Microdac.
The Xenos, also connected to the Microdac sounds exactly like it did on day one. I am anxiously waiting for another HeadFier
to receive their Xenos so we may swap reviews. But do not misunderstand me, the Xenos is still
getting my highest praise.

Wayne, help me out here. How does any of this invalidate its performance?

Dex, not at all, not at all. I just didn't want to reiterate all of my early gushing
because it would be redundant at this point and I am the only one reviewing the amp. I don't want any Andrea analogies. The amp is absolutely marvelous and
except for the enormous soundstage and layering of the Heed, it very much holds its own, particularly with HD650s. The Heed just loves those 701s so much. And I have come to love the Sennheisers so much more since the cable upgrade. I really am at a loss but to praise the Xenos but bear in mind it has
the luxury of the Microdac fueling it.

Got it! It shouldn't be too long before other folks receive theirs and post some impressions. Certainly before we see any photos outta you...

for someone as overly educated as myself, you would think I could upload a couple of pictures This 25 KB is making me nuts. I want to figure it out without
having to host these little amp photos. Hang in there. Tomorrow I promise they
will appear.

Why don't you host your photos on a free site like PhotoBucket or flickr, then simply link to them using the image link button? Then you don't have to worry about any of that 25 KB nonsense.

My Xenos 1HA-EPC is in the hopuse and getting it's batteries charged right now. I can't wait to try it out, but that will have to be tomorrow - it has a little slip of paper that says charge 10 hours before first use. SO that's what I'll do.

I will say this - this is a substantial amplifier. It's a little bigger and heavier than the Larocco PRII - Something I never thought I'd see in a portable amp. Looks nice too (although not in the PRII's class in that regard).

Can't wait to hear it!
