These monstrosities:

What am I even looking at here?!
Super high-end speakers are scary.

 



Ah the Duevel omni-directional speakers. The brown "lenses" make the below speaker cone disperse the sound in all directions evenly.... or that's the idea at least.


If you see Magico, check them out too. They make the "Ultimate" horn speakers. I actually own one of the 15" woofers you see at the bottom of the below towers, that driver alone was $800. The whole set you see below .... only $600,000.

Never go full audiophool speakers!

I'm really saatisfied with my nuberts right now and will most likely stay away from the whole speaker business until I have the high paid job that I will probably never get :3
 


I just installed the WASAPI plug-in for Foobar.
Guess what?
Everything sounds like it did before.

post #102678 of 157606
Lol I don't blame you. I spent a few thousand on my speaker setup with all kinds of plans to upgrade these "entry" components...... here I am like 8 years later with no desire to upgrade. I learned a lot about diminishing returns with that project.

Can you try ASIO? I find ASIO does improve things for me on my past 2 PCs.

WASAPI was supposed to improve sound?

I think so, doesn't it bypass the windows processes and stuff like ASIO does? I know WASAPI makes my volume control not work in Win7 at least.
post #102681 of 157606
Dunno. I think it bypasses the Windows mixer and ignores anything that uses said mixer, which makes it the only sound source in the system. At least that may be why I used it - I rarely use my computer for music, so I honestly don't really remember...

I've never heard a difference when using wasabi. Fidelizer on the other hand made a pretty big difference.

looks like i missed nothing in the last 99 posts... knew I should've skipped :o

 

Welp. Mahou Sensou is one of those that skipped quite a bit of the LN. 

 

Z/X is yugioh 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
with lots of round glutton :normal_smile : not sure whether to like it or not. I've seen so much of it around lately. Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. Otherwise it's nice.

The iDOLM@STER movie finished premiering like, an hour ago.

Now to wait for semi-decent version and subs. ;_;

You missed EVERYTHING.

Z/X is basically yugioh, but with...um..... it's in a city... like a Duel city... oh wait... hmmm.

Why does China need it's own set of human "rights"? Is it really that special? I honestly don't think it is anymore.

I'm just not buying their arguments.
You always make it sound like the PRC is just a scared and helpless little puppy that is in constant fear of being swallowed by the bigger dogs around it.
It's time for them to snap out of this victim mentality. Possible that a lot of these horrible crimes were necessary to grant the stability of the country like 50 years ago.
But now?

 


Bitcoins, Dogecoins, Litecoins etc are soooo confusing....All this mining, peer-to-peer, special software, trading stuff on weird websites, wallets etc etc....

I think China is trying to retain their ideal implementation of communism - in theory:

 

Step 1. One governing party gets all the power

Step 2. Everything is well managed, and everyone is happy

 

But in practice, only the first step was carried out. Step 2? Well, you can see how well that went during the Cultural Revolution.

Well, it's because of people like CY Leung (nicknamed 689, China's dog and Your Mom's ****** **** (due to the way that IKEA mascot's name is romanized). Just people who do whatever China tells them to do (sometimes with money, or just brainwashing like Jackie Chan).

Why would I pick a specific case if all of these violations are happening there almost daily? I honestly don't know how the government want's to justify them.

I really really don't think that everything the Chinese government is doing, happens based on statistics etc.
Last time I checked, China had a pretty big problem with corruption.

Exactly, the PRC is not a helpless and scarred puppy. Why is it still acting like one? You are saying that all these "violations" happen just because the government is in constant fear that their country will fall apart any minute and then get swallowed by the western world.

Yes, it seems all a bit to convenient, don't you think? (for the Chinese Government that is).

I had no idea because I'm practically cut off from HK's information networks. (can't read chinese)

Are you from Hong Kong?

They've got bigger fish to fry than to tackle censorship/all the things you've mentioned, change doesn't happen overnight, and now is as good a time as any to be born in China, or anywhere in the world, really.

 

You can't hold them to the same standards, it'll take at least a few decades for them to 'catch up' with the developed countries.

Probably still recovering from the incident of '76-'89.

I guess the initial "WOW WTF"-factor of the animations and the general artstyle is starting to vanish and the story really isn't one that is fascinating me that much.
 


Agenda for next weekend:
Celebrate brothers birthday
Visit the Norddeutsche Hifi-Tage convention in Hamburg :3

Most of the stuff they are going to show there are stupidly expensive speakers/turntables etc, but there will also be companies like Sennheiser, Fiio, AK etc there.

I'm thinking the same thing; I'm more interested in Chuu2byou Ren now...and finishing Nichijou.

Woah! I just finished the TV series, too! Looks like another movie I'll have to wait for, like the AnoHana Movie.

 

 


Some extra LOLs from Jackie:

Nichijou is the best! (Joshiraku is besterer though!)
Chuunibyou is also the best!

 


I'm trying to make it through the first season of Ghost in the Shell right now....difficult. maybe too difficult.
The movie was super good but the series is kind of meh. It's slow. Which doesn't really have to say anything, but the cases they are solving are just a bit shallow.
*sigh*
I still have Spice&Wolf right now (which is a lot more story driven than I thought).

I could barely finish S1 before I went to S2....if you can't watch season 1, you won't last S2
