Well I'm part Indonesian (although most people can't tell) so no Dutch blonde guy either. I like my beer and Ajax though :beerchug:

Remind me never to have surgery out there. :D

The beginnings of decriminalizing weed out here in the USA have begun, Many don't realize that if they fail a drug test at work, they will be out of a job and will have nothing to say about it.

Yeah, but it's pretty normal not to be stoned when working right. I mean I'm a freelancer but I wouldn't work drunk or stoned. Ever.

I never ever touched that stuff (or any other stuff which breaks down ur braincells on the longrun) in my life and got (abit) drunk only once in my whole life and i am born here from portuguese parents biggrin.gif
And to be be honest..i am interim..i get hired by companies for a short while for different reasons..if i ever wouldnt be on my best..well.then.lets say it wouldnt be good for my professional life biggrin.gif
So they expect me to be sober in every way...24/7... But i dont expect otherwise from them. wink.gif

Yeah, I dislike drugs but I'm not the kind of guy who can just drink one beer. That's why I only drink when going out with friends ;)

I have some tube socketsavers which is why the tubes look stretched. They are the Philips Miniwatt E88CC I just got today. Very pleased with them! 

 

Glad you got your Miniwatts and they're working out.  Is it ever the end game with tubes though?  :D

Saw your pix in the other thread.  Now you just need a comfy kick-back-and-enjoy chair.  The back of the one in the shot not shown here makes my back cringe ;)

 

And don't mind StanD.  He's a troublemaker, as if it weren't painfully obvious (yeah, yeah, takes one to know one!)

Well, schiit, brother, now we're talkin'!  I'll bring some fine reds over, and you supply the cheese.  No, cheese is not code for anything ;)  I'd bring it, but customs and all.  I'll even bring my HE-500s and we can have a battle on your amp :darthsmile:

No worries, mon, dah guhv'ment wants you to work less and pursue your weed, errrr, dreams.  Yeah, that's it.  Dreamy weed ;)

You know what they say in Barrytown: the surgery's on U.S.!!

Trust me, you'll have had enough red wine to make you beg for my HE-500s ;)

 

Glad your upgrade was worth it.  Truly.  I'll use my spare cash to explore some vineyards... or maybe buy one :D

Or u will pass out on the floor as here in europe some wines can have high precentage of alcohol biggrin.gif
Yeah until now i am very happy with my code-x..even starting to get an idea i struck gold with this buy although it was expensive....the other superbuy i did (also unexpected!) was the 337, which i just sold to a very happy fellow headfi'er who now uses him to drive his he6, his hd800 and his he500 through his excellent v800 dac, and in the process totally forgot his v200 amp i understand.. wink.gif

But the he500 was a headphone i cherished deeply as i did with the he300 when i was on a tight budget for a while..i loved the darkness and smoothness of that dynamic phone..especially with the modded mstage (ver. 1) i had..i took them with me as if they were portable! I even had a backpack in which i could take the mstage with me...
On the other hand i found the he400 completely awful...and i sold it very fast! That phone gave me severe headaches sometimes... And i didnt use it on high volumes...i even tried warmer sounding tubes like rca ones..but to no avail...

Hope the new 400! Will be less agressive and more balanced... I dont want a phone which needs to be equalized to listen to it..for me thats sacriligious in the worst sense...imho ofcourse

Am going to sleep..its 4:20am here..need my 4hours beauty sleep..tomorrow busy day...going to look for new furniture for new home with my ladies at home..FUN! .hehehe tongue.gif

Get some sleep and dream of the new HE-560 and save time by skipping the upgrade step from the new 400 whatever the number is. :tongue:
