Nice.

Have you been eyeing my posts on AVS forum?  wink.gif

Good find on that "Sylvania Mosaic Flexible Light strip".  That looks pretty similar to the one I've got.  I'll have to bookmark that in case I need more.  I'm not seeing it for less than $40 online though, so maybe it's only $29 at the store.

Yeah I have and they've been very helpful thank you very much. I've only seen it in store. It will sell out soon in my area because I'm gonna go buy it all and put it behind all my monitors and TVs at my place and my folks, muhahaha smily_headphones1.gif

Why do they have to make this stuff so expensive?! Id love to get the HD800, the stax 009, the HE-6, the LCDs - 3, hell even the HD 700.

 

Worst Part... i want all of them :D.

 

When i joined this site i thought "Sorry about my wallet? maybe once" But this damn thing is a Drug!

Right now im thinking i should sell the HE-400 Asap and try to get the Auden LCD 3.... or the HE-6... Damn.

 

Whatever, my next buy goes to Visuals or a PC.... need tog et away from this site for a year or so...

My Compass 2 tracking says its here for delivery.... gah, the wait!
post #10775 of 37326

I feel your pain in relation to my Annies.  They arrived in town last friday night around midnight, but since they're getting delivered to my work, I've had to wait all weekend to get them.  Finally they're out for delivery today!

post #10776 of 37326

Yay, my Annies just arrived!  I can't wait to use them tonight.

 

I gotta say, though Mad; even though you obviously sold me on them with your early impressions, I'm still eager to read your final review.

Source Components For Sale/Trade.

 

That's where all sound cards and DACs go, along with portable devices. I've seen smartphones, gaming handhelds, and even full-blown laptops sold there.

 

In other news, speaking of buying things:

 

-That keyboard case I ordered for my Galaxy S III finally arrived. However, in practice, I find it to be a bit kludgy if you're trying to use it in a handheld fashion because it's just a flap of pleather that hinges the actual case part and the flap that the keyboard itself rests on, meaning it's kind of wobbly. A slide-out design would've worked better, preferably portrait orientation as that's how I use it most of the time and blocking off the camera and speakerphone without compromising keyboard space would be significantly less of an issue.

 

It is significantly more practical as a laptop orientation stand, however; the case can prop up the GS3 itself, and since the keyboard's Bluetooth, it's wireless. Sticks on with velcro, so you can take it off and plop it on with ease without having to worry about it not getting a good grip.

 

Also, typing on a thumbboard of this size is a hell of a lot nicer than putting up with on-screen keyboards, and I don't lose valuable screen space.

 

-I pulled the trigger on that video capture card I was talking about earlier. Can't wait to see first-hand how it does my numerous consoles justice...

Has anyone gotten their hands on 2013 a40s? They are supposedly an improvement over previous years. I'm wondering how they compare to the PC 360s, as the Sennheiser set seems to be aging a bit. And I'm not talking just the Mixamp; the headset itself is supposed to have been improved. Astro claims better acoustics. To quote directly from the website, "The new 2013 edition of the A40 Audio System combines an acoustically improved A40 Headset with our updated MixAmp™ Pro to bring you the next-gen audio experience."

Oh wow, thanks :) Thanks for the info about the KB. Sounds great :)

I wasn't clear on whether you purchased the headset with the new Mixamp or just the Mixamp, since your review and the update note only mentioned the Mixamp being the 2013 edition, unless I missed something. Anyhow, thanks for clearing that up.

The a40s were reviewed earlier, then the Mixamp. Both entries are there.

Hey, just wanted to say that I bought from BestSeller21 on Amazon for the Annies, and I picked the slowest/free shipping. 3-5business days it said. Well, he/she is located in NY, and I have to sign for it, but get this, it's being shipped Fedex2day. O.o Wow. How nice! :) I get them Wednesday then. Good thing I'm off work.
