This is full of win:




(for those that don't speak Japanese: in the third panel she literally says 'it's the switch that makes people come out [of the house]!')

And on the case ("Don't look." - Kiri Komori), We'll either go with a simple brushed aluminum or steel block with the small 19mm diameter (I think that was it) buttons from Bulgin that's flush to the surface. The other possibility was to use a case like the Yulong D100 II, 1704 DAC, DAH1 MK II, or Crystal DAC Amp (not the portable version, well...they look the same so why not?) but with the layout we have and probably without the text on the front panel unless we can come up with a name that basically everybody agrees on (No, not project-H and thank you, Boris, for not putting that on the PCB. Please don't. I'd feel compelled to not buy it for some reason).

 

 

Photos of the Yulong units I'm talking about. (Click to show)

Images not in order as listed.

 

 

 

 

Also, Boris, we'll be using screws with two hex nuts with a large surface area (or a really wide washer) in which we can use to clamp the PCB because I don't really want to go with superglue for the O2 PCB.

We can use either rivets (I like the look of countersunk rivets) or screws with a hex key. Philips head screws would be fine too. As long as they're flush to the surface (or a bit deeper into the front panel). For the volume knob, if we really can't find one without the teeth or the rubber rings to act as grips around the dial, we'll probably end up with the teeth because the rubber looks...cheap and odd. Front panel will be silver or black, preferably silver. Same with the knob (silver color).

Those Yulongs look pretty alike to standard Hammond cases.

Based on broken almost-incomprehensible machine translation, they did compare the MONET with their 334, and saying that it's more 'fun', whatever that means. Hence the astronomical price of it. Since it's the same level as the 334, at least that's what they reckon it as.

If dear ImperialX was not bogged down with endless exams, he would've burst in our thread and sing the praises to high heavens about the new Apple stuff. And frankly, I'm disappointed with Apple's iPad mini. Considering the price one would think that they would at least compete on the screen res, and not just rely on the brand name. Which still would make them money no doubt, but more guarded customers won't be so easily swayed IMO, considering the other 7" tablets (at least in the US).

I read the entire live stream thing on Anandtech. They definitely look nice, as usual, but yes, the specifications are pretty disappointing.

 

Edit: That and the fact that, as expected, soldered on RAM (soldered to motherboard) and they also used a non-standard solid state drive (uses your standard SATA connector I believe but a different form factor. The SSD is also used for, I think, cache only which you might be able to change).

 

I sometimes wonder why they don't just make a hole in the PCB for where the RAM should be, throw a connector on where the edge of the hole is on the board, and stick in the RAM so it's very low profile. The RAM PCB would be on the same plane as the motherboard PCB. Swappable RAM and low profile. Y U NO WANT TO INNOVATE THIS TIME APPLE?!

Spare me. He already spammed my Facebook news feed. If he would have gone inside here it'd be horrible, to be honest.

On the good side, it's more posts. tongue.gif

That's exactly the bad side.

Apple letting people easily swap out internal hardware? What madness. I could understand the low profile point but I don't think they would let their presumed idiotic customers the pleasure for relatively easily swappable RAM. I think.

TBH again, it's the mediocre screen res that's a huge bummer in my mind, even if I'm set to acquire the N7. I mean the most differentiating feature of the iPad is it's ridiculous screen res. And yet the iPad mini's is just the same, if not a little bit inferior to a few other competition. http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2012/10/apple-joins-the-fray-a-survey-of-the-7-inch-tablet-scene

And quite mercifully, he didn't spam them in Twitter. wink.gif

I'd say who cares what Apple decides to shove in their new products. If it's good, get it. If it's bad, drop it (gravity!)


On another note...!!

If you're looking purely for good sound, stray away from these :P

LOL you bought that? I hope at least that you have a AT planar drivers to transplant into that thing. Or any other fitting planar drivers.
