Wow, there is a surprising amount of STAX auctions on ebay Germany.

http://www.ebay.de/itm/Kopfhorer-STAX-SR-80-und-Versorgungsgerat-SRD-4-SR-84-/291050005792?pt=Kopfh%C3%B6rer&hash=item43c3eea520

And many many more.

I guess so but.... :(

Only thing that kept me away from JoJo so far, are the meh visuals. *sigh*

I want some STAX too! Would be waaaaay to expensive to import them though.

Lol, you just have to learn to deal with it. Maybe watch some really old stuff with crappy visuals to get yourself adjusted? :tongue:

 

Yup, I can imagine the VAT would make everything quite expensive over there... Though I have seen a couple pairs of SR-202s going for ~200 euros (without an amp iirc) which might be moderately affordable? 

Also, if you're used to the SM-64, which from what I've heard is a fair bit warm, STAX may sound a bit too bright to you. It's weird though. I don't really like bright headphones, and the STAX are undoubtedly a bit bright (other than the really old ones) but they're never piercing or painful to listen to like dynamics that are bright, or the few planars I've heard that have treble spikes.

The worst looking one I've seen so far was Kino no Tabi.
But the visuals are really not imporatant in this anime.

Yeah, I already read things like this about the STAX. Too bad that there is most likely no way that I will ever get the chance to demo a pair :P

 

Bookmarked. Let's see for how many this setup will go away.

 


Quick question: What is the difference between the normal version of Fate/Stay Night and the TV reproduction?

Nevermind, it's some kind of OVA.

Two one hour long recaps....can I just watch these and then skip to Fate/Zero? :D

Lol.

Another one of those gaming "celebrity" parody accounts. You read it and you are like "OK, wow". It's kinda funny.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Then you realize there are real Geoff's tweets retweeted there and it's hard to distinguish them from the parody ones.

What normal version? Besides the game, there is just the anime series and a movie.

 

The movie is not the 'regular' series. It also isn't complete canon in that its no the 'main' story line.

 

The movie Unlimited Blades Works follows another of the visual novels main heroines and her story. The anime didn't cover this of course as it stayed true to the 'main' line.

Okay, what I get from the reviews is that I should STAY (olololol) far away from this OVA.
I guess I'll watch the regular anime then.

Visuals are never truly important in any anime, much like graphics aren't really important in video games.

 

Like I mentioned earlier, buy them for as cheap as you can find and if you don't like them, sell them for what you bought them for. You may have to eat the shipping charges, but that's fair enough for getting an extended demo of a headphone, don't you think?

What are you saying :confused_face_2:

 

Welp, good imagination is king. So, it all ends well. Also read the manga. Good ending :)

All this STAX talk. I was SO close to getting some 007s but I don't want to trap myself in the limited amp selection out there. I would need to see if someone has made a DIY bias supply/impedence matching transformer for stat ear speakers, then all you would need is a custom cable that splits those leads from the signal lead and you could use any amp you want.

Goes without saying. But sometimes bad executed animations etc can be such a party pooper....

That's true, I guess. Maybe someday....

 


Sorry, but why am I watching Fate/Stay Night first?
Wouldn't it be smarter to watch Fate/Zero first because it's a) the prequel and b) a better way for me to find out if I'm even interested in the whole Fate/blabla business?

SnK has been added to Netflix!

 

It has subs AND IS IN HD!

 

If you have a Netflix account and want to watch SnK, please do so instead.

 

There is no reason not to now since it is in HD and has subs. 

 

This helps support the anime industry actually and helps bring more anime to Netflix.
