Just think of all the money one could save on skipping the liquid nitrogen.

Bliksem, it's cold.

Thanks zoom25... Yeah i really hope it will be as stellar as i expect it to be....

But again reading about the guy who is buIlding my amp makes me believe it could be something special i will be getting..and in future i can easily transform it i to a battery powered/solar energy powered amp...i just have to sent it back to him and pay..is that green or what? biggrin.gif

And u guys all know the builder of my new headphone..LFF ..who also made the world happy with his excellent Paradox headphone..So u can say i am on a skyhigh slope ready to dive into a deeeeeeeeep unknown swimmingpool..but if my intuition is right (as it was with my 337 and he500..which i both bought without listening!) and if i did my homework right..then it will be a extremely satisfying and LOOOOOONg swim.. biggrin.gif

I better not kiss the headphone as its real wood..it could damage the protection..and even worse..the amp is stainless steel..and we all know if u kiss that it gives stains on the surface..so better only look at it and listen to it biggrin.gif

Just heard the powersupply case will also have a illluminated blue circle in front...for esthetics sake..so it paires well with the front of the amp..as they will be placed side by side. wink.gif
Now i think of it..need to make room for those two cases..AND the PLC thingee FX2 conditioner. Will be crowdy on my desk next to my lappie. biggrin.gif

My Macbook Air is only 11" and it's 11 inches of pure awesomeness. Kinda what I'm used too :rolleyes:

 

I use Flactunes to convert and it's really not that much work.

Did I hear that correctly, "It's time for a new desk." :eek:

You know what? I ended up installing win7 on my macbook pro and I don't really regret it. My next computer will be a pc, to hell with aesthetic. The only thing I'll really miss is the more-than-excellent touchpad. It's really, really good as I prefer it over a mouse.

You zapped OSX as in sayonara or installed Windoze in a virtualized environment?

I dont think a bigger desk then the one i have now (ex-microsoft office desk i bought when they moved to another building.. It was a steal compared to what these extremely heavy professional desks go for nowadays!)

Just to give u an idea how full my desk is and the surroundings..my apologies for the mess and the bad quality of piccs (i made them with my ipad 3 biggrin.gif
