You beat me to it.  Despite his taste in tech, Textfeud's a good guy!

 

 

 

Full disclosure: I own one Apple product... but I installed Rockbox on it :p

Yes, very. But still have to receive the headphonecable. Only have the interconnect and usb so far. 

 

I took the Noir Hybrid (copper and a touch of silver). They are his top-of-the-line and aren't mentioned on his site yet. So e-mail him if you want those. 

 

Build quality is great. But I won't be going into SQ debate. :rolleyes:

Yeah I'm weird. 

 

You must be a Rafa Nadal fan.  Do you arrange your HP stands just so... like Rafa with his water bottles?  Just don't pick at yr pants!  ;)

Surprise surprise. I just plugged my HE-500's into my laptop while listening to the below and it was much louder than I imagined it would be. Even my HD600's did well. Looks like my Samsung laptop has plenty of driving power, it's one of the better i7 models that looks a bit like a MacBook Pro.

Haha, good to hear. I try to watch all his games. I'm a sportsfan in general I even watch the world cup of Darts right now (Mighty Mike!!!).

 

But only European sports, no American sports. Not because I hate it, but I didn't grew up with it so I don't have a connection with baseball, American Football or basketbal.

Because I'm a aesthetics guy I like my stuff to compliment each other. Which is why I would buy a silver dac and amp over a black one given the choice. Luckily the Bifrost and Lyr both come in silver. And yeah, I switched some cables so all my cables are black. Is that so weird to do. triportsad.gif  
Text, not at all. I have the same preferences, MBA, silver color etc. My cables are black as well

F*** apple... Only thing that I have from them is an Ipod which I would gladly give up for an android device if it they had a real portable music player...

 

Their laptops are horrible and completely overpriced, it's a joke

Superior build quality and improved aesthetics are probably the main reasons people spend significant sums of money on peripherals like headphone cables, but I listened to the stock HE-500 cable tonight and to my ears there is definitely an argument for improved SQ with some aftermarket cables. I swear my Charleston cable adds a real weight to the bass. I'm almost positive I'm not imagining it...and I'm not just saying that because it's up for sale :-)

I like to add comfort and an ease of mind. Don't we all just want the best for an ease of mind even if our ears don't hear it :wink:
