but ofcourse my MAIN hobby is my family..and immediately also my most expensive one!! as i have an ex-fashiondesigner and a 11 year old very smartie and beautiful lady in the house..and trust me when i say that those two spend more yearly on fashion and stuff then i ever spend on my car, my pc and my audio together in a year!!!

I think you need one adopted son... :D  As he might be older than you, I hope that's OK ;)

but i am smart..since her birth i have been pumping 100euro every month in a savings account and my mum does the same..on top of that my mum dearest has some money put aside for later for her grandchild...as its her only one..so she has a little fortune already on that account that will be used for schooling...as we want her to give the same opportunity as i had back in the days when everything was more affordable (and when college was almost free here in the netherlands!) those were the days.... :D 

My folks were immigrants of limited means. I went to The City College of New York and studied Electrical Engineering. It only cost a few hundred dollars a term, most of it on books. My daughter went to New York University, that cost me a new Corvette every year. A BS degree means that I should have 5 Corvettes in my garage. LUckily her Masters degree was on the house, she worked at the same university as a Research Scientist and NYU covered most of it. Now she's in CA working on a P.h.D. and she get's paid to do that. I still want my 5 Corvettes, damn it.:mad:

My son went to a less expensive school and since he's a combat veteran, the Gov't helped with the latter half of his education. I have to straighten him out, he actually bought a Bose headphone a couple of months ago. :confused_face(1): It was a QC-15, but he doesn't commute and doesn't need the great NR that it has. In a bus, plane or train it's the best headphone at home it's average and not worth the price. At least he didn't get a celebrity endorsed red plastic POS.

Tell him you'll do a nice grill mod for him. It'll match his new amp.

The Hopi foresaw my coming to Amsterdam.  I done seen it on Ancient Aliens ;)

i always respect these kind of stories... well done as a parent! i hope my kid will come out well also...but only time will tell..she is smart..but using it is an alltogter different game :o

 

but ru trying to scare me? 5 corvettes? damn....

 

 

 

and ur right..u have to straighten ur son out...BOSE..really? but ur right..better that then what u mentioned..lolz

 

as a solution u could give him a he300 for his birthday and a matrix mstage (with the dac inside) to go with it..it wont break the bank..and u will feel much more connected :D

My wife and I love Giorgio... OK, his outrageous hair-do, at least.  That show is my comedy for the week.

 

 

 

But no, my man Childress laid my destiny on me.  Blue Star Kachina FTW!!!  He's a helluva guy.

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75

 

That's Childress on the right, in case you were wondering.  I'll never forget the day we took that picture.  Good times.  I look pretty good, I must say.  I had to have my HE-500s designed with an extra wide headband.  Shocker, I know.  Interestingly the  Q701 PADS!!!  fit just fine ;)

Absolute schiit, but comedy gold.  Actually, they do reference the occasional bit of archaeology that piques my interest.  Then the pinheads start talking and the comedy resumes.

 

and i hope my bliss will start in two weeks time... as it will be sent off next week

 

Yes, I read!  I'll congratulate you when it arrives in one piece.  But right on.  I know you must be as anxious as... well hell, I can't imagine.  I'm sure it's gonna rule the roost.

 

mod for food huh? but i already have everything modded in my rig! and all my cables are custommade...even my USB cable is custommade...the only orginal thing in my rig is me (or it could be i am a modified clone..golden ears and extreme sensitive smell....remember?) :D 

 

It was a general statement for any Summit-Fi people willing to take in a poor mid-fier.  I'm sure you can +1 me the next time you're going to Club Olympus ;)

I hope Hifi doesn't go for another capacitor or figamajig last minute mod to his ever evolving amp. I don't think that his nerves could take another minute of delay. I wonder if he gets abducted by aliens during his brief 4 hour snooze. I wonder if he's being probed right now. With a dB SPL meter, not the other thing, silly.

Time to flip some power switches and plug in my HE-500.
