Like the jacket aswell.
Thanks. The shoes look great in person but I walked a hole into both soles in an unreasonably short amount of time. Now I have to go throw $65 at Nordstroms so they fix them. I still think they're worth it though.

Hopefully my sarcasm will be a good example of what not to post, I was happy to see those other threads go.. it would be nice to delete them even.

iPod Video 5g - Black - 60gb... Significant, as I don't buy much. I am saving for my next HUGE significant purchase! (CAR!)

The eBay pic:


Now allowing iTunes to do the meticulous sorting now I listen less on the go and therefore, care less about SQ, and having my music sorted EXACTLY as I want. Plus I was running out of space and needed another SD for the D2, and also, now when I fire up, i'm looking for a certain album to play, and switching between 3 8gb SD's was annoying me.

Was on ebay at £65, with a leather case 2 weeks ago, and thought i'd regret not buying it at that price after watching others. Looked like it had a Classic like metallic black face, was listed as a 4th gen, which it clearly wasn't, and was listed under the iPod Video category on ebay. My friend said it's one of the ones between the 5.5g Video, and the 6g 80gb/160gb Classic, as it has a 60gb disk. Wondered if it would have coverflow or album art at the side of the albums in album view like the newer Classics do. Anyway, at £65 shipped with a leather case in "excellent condition" I couldn't pass up... Thought i'd regret it with 80gb units (alone) selling for £90+, and older 60gb Video's going for £75-85. And i've only got 40gb of music, and don't need 80gb anyway!

Anyway... Turned up a week a go, and turned out to be the old shiny 5g Video... Didn't lok like it in the picture! Anyway, was a bit scratched, but for the shiny model of it's age, not bad... Few marks on the click wheel, and a few brasso won't get out on the back, but will look much better when the invisible Best Skin Ever (Like Invisible Shiled/Zagg, but 1/4 price and just as good IMO) gets slapped on. Always hides the fine scratches the polishing compounds leave.

Anyway, loving it, and I used to be an iPod hater! Battery is so so, might upgrade it to a cheap ebay "950mah" (will it be at £8?! Doubt it!) or a 750mAh well known branded one at £16? SQ is not too shabby. And podcasts are great on there, automatic, and show where each topic starts on a good podcast, with changing album art dependent on topic. Great. And no shuffling of SD cards!

Wanting to slap this skin sitting on the desk on it, resell it, and extend my budget to an 80gb Classic which is slimmer and has a nicer featured UI, now I know I like iTunes and iPod!

Will post pics on the rig thread when the skin is on and it's looking loverly, with the beater phones on my to buy list (PK3 and a cheap IEM - until I have money available to burn on new customs... LW's need reshelling, and the company are uselessly unreliable and slow now!)

(Also, I always found the last thing you bought thread interesting! Guess i'm nosey! I used to read back until the last post I had seen !)

Thanks,

Matt

Tascam DR-100 digital recorder. DPA SMK4060 matched mini omnidirectional mics and a mannequin head.

I've been happy with my headphone rig for some time. And my speaker rig has just moved to as far as its going for any number of years. I'm selling some gear to put funds towards taking up binaural recording, which I've wanted to do for some time but am fortunate enough to have the flexibility of buy before sell on this occassion. Moving onto a new phase of my academic life with a PhD, I thought it an apt time to take the plunge into a new hobby too.

Should be fun!

The ipod with the LiveWires sounds like a nice portable rig. I'm aware that quite a few head-fiers don't much like ipods for a variety of reasons, including sound quality as compared to other players, but when I'm using a portable rig, I'm usually not in an environment where subtle sq differences will be noticed one way or another. I've always liked my ipod and the much maligned itunes, and plan on getting a 160g when I've taken care of other priorities.

Speaking of, and though I certainly won't post a picture, my last significant purchase was another month with a personal trainer at the gym three days a week. It's significant because I woke up one day, and completely out of the blue it seems, I was middle aged, overweight, flabby and sluggish. All of this happened without my consent, mind you, but nonetheless, nothing seemed to be changing while doing the same nothing that got me there. Ah well. Last year's theme was audio gluttony. This year, I'm focusing on my health, and at least can listening to wonderful sounds while nursing some really sore muscles.

BTW, an ipod and JH13 makes cardio not only bareble, but fun.

Was typing the above before Duggeh posted. Dang, Doug. I can't wait to hear what the heck you create, and expect copies. Oh....and Ivan says hello.

setting up a binaural rig sounds like fun

Gateway MD7330u.


Fast as heck to boot up. And did I mention dead sexy as heck? For less than $500, I'm pretty damn happy.

At first I didn't either, but Gateway MD7330u. is in the post title. So I assume its a laptop. The picture helped to confirm that diagnosis.

Audioengine A5 powered speakers. I recently got these as an entertainment system for the lab that I work. They sound great with a spacious sound and good bass for their size. I'm playing Pandora radio through them which gives me music all day without having to change CDs as I was doing in the past. Makes the work day pass a little faster. I like to blast it late in the day when everyone else has already gone home.

ESS AMT 1D with the great "Heil" tweeters
Mind explaining the missing center bits to us speaker impaired?

Also, I have a feeling that every time this thread gets deleted it will be resurrected.

Its missing the dust caps thats the only flaws w/c is replaceable for a few bucks. The most important part of these speakers are the heil tweeters w/c usually goes around $300 to $600 and they do sound really awesome. I already put in the new dust caps and just started removing the old veneers.

Wow, this is a really cool thread. My most recent significant purchase was my HF-2's. As a matter of fact, the only full-size headphones I own are the HF-1's and the HF-2's.
