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

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

You just need to organize a little better ;)  Do you have any storage bins for the stuff on the desk?  My "office"/laboratory was basically a junk room until my wife kicked my ass into chucking 60% of it, and getting some stackable plastic bins (with pull out drawers) that fit in the closet, into which went cables, hard drives, computer parts, et al.  Opened that room right up.  Hell, I even put a plant in there ;)

I've been using Macs for over 6 years. Never once have I used ALAC. It's been exclusively MP3 and FLAC. All you need is Audirvana. Clementine if you want to build a FLAC library. I keep music on external hard drive and then use Audirvana to play off my hard drive. I like it more than Amarra. Really efficient as well. Also it supports cue files and other stuff.

As long as we don't mention the H E - 5 0 0 s (<-- don't want someone to see this post accidentally, if they're searching for the actual cans ;))  it's all good.  One could make the argument that the listening environment is every bit as important as amping them properly.  Of course, were one to make such an argument, they should be prepared for merciless, and well-deserved, ridicule.  Thus, I am not making said argument :D

Maybe the guy who makes Toxic cables can branch out a bit.  Branch out?  This is all becoming a tad woodsy for me.
