Just saying.  All are awesome rides but the Vette is a better platform to start off from.

I'm talking MSRP, the corvette is roughly 10k more

It all depends on where you want to start off from.  The STI is a glorified Subaru Imprezza.  The Evo is a glorified Lancer.  The SRT4 is a glorified Neon/Caliber.  You get what you pay for.  I'm not saying GM's Vettes prior to the stingray had phenomenal interiors but you certainly got more bells/whistles.  I find the C6's interior to be more that sufficient.  

 

Anyways...back to the new purchase stuff, picked up this bad boy yesterday.  Already rooted and played around with...LG G3

How do you like the G3?

It's good.  I like it.  I'm just waiting for the mod community to get at it.  For now I've rooted it and put in a bunch of tweaks via Xposed.  

 

I don't miss my Galaxy S4 one bit at the moment.

Awesome ride man!  I wish more cars came with manual (despite auto becoming more superior day by day).  0-60 in two gears!?!?!?  Wow!   Two gear shifts gets me to 115mph LOL

 

I traded my 2002 35th Anniversary Camaro SS convertible with an LS1 and 3.73 gears to buy my new car, and believe it or not, I'm having a blast with the Fiesta ST! Sure, it can't compete with my old Camaro in a straight line, but it is very fun on a twisty road. I love Corvettes too, and I've owned a Camaro Z/28 six-speed with an LT1 as well as my old Camaro SS.

 

Beware of the Fiesta ST at an autocross! ;)

Why is it significant for me?

 

It is my first USB DAC and/or amp I bought, whether I would move on from there would depend on time and finances

 

Now waiting for my headphones to arrive to my door

Kai, I think you've made a great investment. I feel sometimes the Audinst doesn't get a whole lot of love with all the competition it has. It's a great, and to some extent, portable DAC & amp combo that features great sound and will indeed showcase what external DACs are all about. Enjoy! : - )

 

Can I ask what headphones you are awaiting the arrival of?

My Sennheiser HD580 (bundled with DSP Pro) should be coming to my door soon...

 

Gonna replace the grilles with HD600 ones and the cables with HD650 ones, since I think it looks aesthetically better this way

 

I know the HUD-mx1 may not be the best combination... but I am just going to experiment for now and see how I like the sound to go

I don't have a stock suspension.  It's got some upgrades to take the corners.  ;)

 

That's awesome I used to own a 99 Camaro.  Same body style.  

 

Anyways, new significant purchase.  Put some new rubber on the car with some new wheels.

I've been buying too much crap lately...joys of new house. :beerchug:

 

Finished out the home theater.  Blackout vinyl the windows and put decorative curtains over it.  All complete and ready for (American) football now! :L3000:
