Black vs silver. I really wish Schiit and NAD offered their gears in both black and silver.

Schiit had some limited black versions due to an error from their manufacturer.

but not for Mjolnir/Gungnir. It was restricted to their smaller units.

Exciting times ahead it seems. Haha. :biggrin:

 

I'm personally saving for a DA8 from Yulong. I was somewhat interested in the X-Sabre, but my interest has shifted. As for amps I want a Master 9 from Audio-gd. HE-500/LCD-2 combo is keeping me very happy but I'm always tempted to sell and jump for the LCD-X.

LOL, never crossed my mind.  Could always go to Vansterdam, just over the border... and across the continent ;)

I just love this place, it's a shopping extravaganza where we get others to spend their money on stuff that we think is cool. :D The next trick is to get some of this stuff gifted back to us. Any ideas on a good strategy? :D

So I ended up jumping on a "couldnt pass up" deal last night for a pair of HE-500's. Now I have both the HE-400's and the HE-500's so I can do some serious A/Bing. I am going to be picking up an Emotiva mini-X A-100 and was wondering something about it. I had read previously in this thread that some had modding their mini-X, one of which mentioned putting a headphone out jack in it. Has anyone here done it and if so do you have any pics of the inside, finished product and info on parts used etc.?

 

Also, what parts are you guys using to connect the Emotiva mini-X to the TRS jack on the stock HE-500 cable?

 

Edit: Nevermind, found these on Google: Ill def be doing this, looks great and very convienent!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As opposed to this mess:

Holy chat room batman!!!  Go away for a few days and I miss so much stuff...interior design, housing issues, etc.

 

It was -26F this morning  when I walked to work (wind chill had it down to a 'feels like' temp of about -52F).

 

I should have just stayed home with my jergpads and called in sick...:biggrin:

Ouch, and I'm dreading tomorrow's 12F commute. You've got to love that lake effect, NOT. glad I don't have to put up with that. Maybe I'll use my Sennheiser Momentums as ear warmers.

I started off so happy with my Beats and after that the Ultrasone Pro 900 :tongue_smile: Yeah, I thought I liked boomy bass back then.

Blue circle audio is a whole different ballgame audio concerned then a emotiva x100..as they do lots of custommade projects..all made by hand...and a eeny weeny bit more expensive... wink.gif.

My amp is on the more budgetside of their projects with the value that i posted here on this thread..its probably most expensive stuff i bought in my house..not even my watch is that expensive! .. :

That's for sure! I'm getting my Denon D5000 tomorrow. Can't wait to check those out. I need a closed can, hopefully they don't make me want to grab the HE-500. :D
