Thank you for quoting Frank Lloyd Wright. He loved Japan.
Thank you for the comment.
Yes, that is one of reason I choose his quote.
In fact, FL Wright is the farther of Japan modern architect. A part of his Imperial Hotel is still preserved as a heritage.
As a weekend photographer, I like modern architect and I like his works.
When I went to Chicago, I visited his remaing studio at Oak Park. That was a nice experience
Is the plug on the YH5M not like the YHD series? The 1/8th plug fits inside the 1/4" - it looks like a single plug but if you hold the rubber part at the back and pull, it separates. The plug for the YHD is metal while all the other yamaha plugs I have come across ( YH1000 all the way through the YH3 ) are a single moulded plastic.
I will take a picture of the YHD2 plug and post it - I just presumed it was a standard for the more "portable looking" - their impedance is not conducive to direct drive from a portable device and after damping, their efficiency is even less so. The low impedance and high efficiency of the YH5M is perfect IMHO ..dB
