Isn't that how the EU works? Do they get a VAT on your transactions?

Finally going to a local store to audition the HE500s today.  If I like them and all things go as planned, I might be coming home tonight as a new owner of some awesome headphones!!!!

Did you read about some EU minister's idea/proposal to start confiscating savings, a la Cyprus?  Here's my favorite headline:

EU commission studying proposal to re-allocate savings of 500 million citizens

 

Red being mine.  "Re-allocate."  Ever heard of a thief saying, "I'm just re-allocating your wallet | watch | TV to me."  To keep it slightly on-topic, they'll pry my HE-500s from my cold dead hands.

Bloodsuckers and thieves. I'm glad to be on my side of the Atlantic Ocean.

Does this mean that people who are careful enough to save get ripped off? I wonder how our European Head-Fiers feel about this.

Quick, buy a pair of HE-500's before they take your money away.

I'm not sure even the vaunted EU can get away with that on such a scale, but ya never know.  Hard to have a diffuse revolution, so maybe they feel confident in that kind of thievery.  That they're even considering it would make me sell my schiit and buy a ticket to anywhere else.  Or at least consider it.

 

Come to the US and get your HE-500s for cheap!! ;)

I'd be inclined to spend excessively on overpriced Amps and DACs rather than just hand my money over. Perhaps I'd be in the HE-6 thread, very soon.

I hope not, I'm probably getting a closed can from the States :eek: Anyone heard the ZMF? It's supposed to sound like the HE-500, but closed!

Too expensive if I want them painted :-)

 

I'm looking at ZMF because it pairs up well with Schiit Modi and Vali.

Just reading about the ZMF.  Intriguing.  What options are you looking at?
