Yeah... There's nothing up here in Quebec. The only option is shopping online at slightly higher prices with the shipping and everything -.- I hate it!

I found shopping online out of the US way cheaper than any of our Canadian online stores.  Pretty sad how much the price difference is, considering how close the our dollar and theirs is.

to get us back on topic, I just got my first rig hooked up and my little brother will probably be ordering some Schiit soon bigsmile_face.gif he was really impressed also have a couple "music lovers" from work coming by to check it out.   On the other hand my Dad liked the way they sounded but could care less, I didn't mention the price

One thing i have to say is that my 2 year old iphone/ipod uses a lot more music file types than my brand new playstation does. IMO Sony is worse than apple when it comes to patents and stuff. Sony parts and plugs change style more than a schizophrenic on crack. Sony is a great innovator, but mostly I find them to be sadistic.

Hi guys,

 

Have to add my today's experience. Friend came over and wanted to play Crysis 3 ... so I gave him HD650 and let him alone for about 10mins. When I get back he complained about sound of guns. He said that for example sniper rifle is doing "piercing" uncomfortable sound instead of "boomy" sound he is used to from his (lower end) speakers and that there is probably something wrong with headphones or sound setting.

 

I was quite confused that some ppl just don't appreciate/like more realistic sound.

I use the HD 600 now. And I don't produce for a band, I'm just mah own artist. 

This is my newest creation https://soundcloud.com/dani-l-cornelisse/mr-bill-cheyah-goodness although because it was for a contest I had to limit it to soundcloud. Which sounds utterly horribad. :/

His mind is programmed to think that guns sound like that..try to take him to a shooting range..with real guns..and am sure his eyes will open in a shock and buy ur headphone biggrin.gif

I don't just think I can do better for myself, I think everyone can. Their pricing is ridiculous. You know they charge $975 to upgrade your RAM to 32GB in a Mac pro? $1000 for a 512GB SSD? How can people be taking that seriously?

You're not quite comparing the same thing. Though expensive that's ECC DDR3 SDRAM, a premium business grade component designed to ensure maximum reliability and system uptime. It's a commercial product that can be bought by consumers. If you compare pricing on consumer equipment sold to end users versus the price for original equipment for industrial and commercial entities you would be a lot less surprised about the price of things.

 

Yeahhhhh, about that... $975 is a completely ridiculous price for 32GB of ECC memory and you'd have to be an idiot to pay for that upgrade.

I've been buying, building, and running servers ("business grade components" or whatever you choose to call them) for over 10 years. Not only do they need ECC memory but they usually also require fully buffered dimms which are even more expensive and I've never had to pay even half as much as Apple charges for their ECC memory. Its a rip off no matter how you look at it.

 

Anyway... we better get back on topic. ;)

I like it man! Also, yea, the sound was not good.

Can we just agree that all PCs and macs suck and be done with it?

 

- This thread was so awesome until we all started down this hate path.

Not when I make a gaming headset out of my Stax by hot gluing a boom mic to the side of it. floatsmile.png
