I know I'm not teh subject of this, but I do respect Apple very much and I am a fan of Jobs Minimilistic approach, in addition in edition I had a friend of mine bring up this point
namely; "the upper society people Apple markets to like things to be simple, so with the appl OS everything is under that House name. So for them it's simple to use Apple products for everything to maintain that simplicity while still having a high quality experince!"
So with that in mind, while I enjoy the freedom that comes from a more complicated approach to computers. I 100% respect and can understand why people pay so much for apple. Apple isn't a computer but rather an entire technological approach! And again on that note, for the sake of a simple and effective solution people buy apple, simply because they KNOW it's going to work!
So no more calling apple fans suckers, but on that note I do encourage people to take the time to learn how to use the cheaper options that are out there!
In addition I got a sexy new cable for my Hifiman Rig... it looks nice ^^ it's a Media Bridge Gold Platted Coiled Cable! And very simple it's a better visual match than the crappy radio shak cable I had b4, plus I need that Radio Shak cord to stay attached to my Tv since I use my Dt 880s with my Wii.
Also on the subject of Pink Explosions there are a lot of them in Eureka 7!

scroll in a bit and watch the pinkness~
Seems like the pink might be exclusive to in-space explosions...?

Yeah. I forgot you were sarcastix a lot. Haha
Yeah.... You mean you NOW do. You called all of them suckers and made very biased approaches before
You are also forgeting that its not just the upper echelon. Its almost everyone world wide. There are 2.3 Billion internet users world wide with ONLY 54 million of those being computer enthusiasts. Thats only 2.3% market. .....//./ yes...post #37709 of 9705110/24/12 at 12:12pmThread StarterQuote:

The definition of DIY is VERY different. It depends on how you look at it... I just simply used a word...... a word ಠ_ಠ ಠ_ಠ ಠ_ಠ ಠ_ಠ ಠ_ಠ
A ...word!.....a WORD.....
Computer Enthusiat me? Not so? How?
Replacing RAM is considered a Do it yourself project to most. And no..getting nutella is not DIY Ծ_Ծ
Not one of who? I'm not a regular enthusiast. I am much much more open and don't fall into bias and subjectivity. So while I'm not what most enthusiasts would call an enthusiast in terms of what they envision copies of their fellow enthusiasts are like. I am one per definition and will just use the term as thats what people call us. Otherwise, I'd just use whatever I want. I'd go with Panda ..just plain panda. Done
Intel made it and Apple did some stuff. I doubt they did much other than say stuff like "we want this and this and that and that feature" it just sounds fancy. but hey, credit is still given to them.
Thunderbolt allows for up to 6 as long as they have their own power source. I believe this was each port but then again, it may have limitations from the southbridge or northbridge(lets just say chipset) of the mobo and what it itself can support at max.
There are some people that have laptops with external graphics cards through huge adapters already and people with desktops and to look nice, a huge PCIE cable and then dock on the wall somewhere but I feel you. It depends on how it will be implemented or how it will work. Either companies support it, or it will just work on any computer as its not hardware dependent(say, you just need a Thudnerbolt port) I don't know how thunderbolt actually works works and how it interfaces with the Windows OS and so yeah.
It's a very broad and ambiguous term. A lot of things can be considered DIY, like sleeping or walking down the stairs, so we'll just leave it at that.
Well, you mostly don't consider yourself one, but you just don't seem as...well, interested as the rest of the enthusiasts. You also said today that you don't really want to be grouped with them.
Okay, well most of the enthusiasts are regular enthusiasts.
GETTING NUTELLA IS DIY BECAUSE IT TAKES EFFORT, AND THEN YOU HAVE TO OPEN IT AND TAKE OFF THE SEAL AND SPREAD IT BY YOURSELF! THEN YOU EAT IT BY YOURSELF.
Ugh...people these days think whoever uses something first belongs to them. *facepalm*
6...still, I think there's a resolution limit as far as monitors go.
I'm aware. I've looked into it once. They run off USB or mPCIe or Expresscard.
It should work just like any external device. The Thunberbolt chip (Intel) just has to check the device to see what it is (storage, monitor, etc.) and then makes Windows act accordingly.

Yeah there is worse but we must consider that those components are "made" to run at those temperatures so while they are hot to us and people that are used to Enthust or Gaming PC cooled desktops, they are "normal"
They have used an aluminum unibody for half a decade and have a state of the art($100 million USD) wirless signal testing lab(they are a phone maker....and they updated it TREMENDOUSLY after the iPhone 4 problem)..... and as far as I can tell. No. Everything gets sent nice and neatly.
I wouldn't think so. Asus and their big Transformer tablet fail.Quote:

@b1o2r3i4s5 My bad for not explaining well enough~ I didn't make the images, but I did do some Photoshopping on several of them. Anyways.. Really nice illustrations~ I've never ordered Custom IEms before, could someone tell me about the quality of the images, from what I saw on the internet, It's quite bad... I used the JH-audio online design thing.
Still, good job.
I really want some CIEMs now. Time to go to Cosmic Ears...Quote:

Releasing a new iPad 8 months after the old one... Now my 64gb 3rd gen (paid $750 for) is probably worth half that, after only 8 months.
Now I have to fight off upgradeitis for their newest model... Oh well at least I know this one is the last one to have the dock connector that everything is compatible with, and it's jailbreakable
Also, I'm thinking of selling off the EPH-100s and Wooduos, possibly to get the GR07 bass edition, or mad dog t50rp, or at least buy some black Friday goodies...
I actually ran out of space on my 2tb anime drive today! O.O looks like I'm gonna need a 3TB

I guess I'll just go with the 2GB config then
Sure Hackintosh can run on x86 and x64, but you would only get a decent performance and I won't get the feel of the real thing. There's specific hardware needed to run things smoothly. iOS isn't as open source as Windows, so drivers are limited
2GB will benefit you if you game at higher resolutions.
You haven't used it have you?
Well that's obvious, but it doesn't matter since they're both very closed source.
Yup.Quote:Originally Posted by b1o2r3i4s5
Never lived outside the city so I have no idea how it is for you :D
I choose UE because I like their sound from demos (never tried UM)
and also because they ere the guys who started this whole CIEM thing 16 years ago, I figured they'd be the most experienced.....
That said.... my UE11's broke 2x in 3 months... maybe I'm just cursed....
Yeah, gotta love their colors :)
Jealous of that color selection...Quote:Originally Posted by VortexBlast
Just came back from Jaben Jakarta and played with various headphones.
I auditioned the Sony XBA-4, MDR-Z1000, MDR-MA900, Denon AH-D2000 and the Fostex HP-A8 DAC/Amp.
Sony XBA-4: Didn't like it, too much annoying piercing treble and very fatiguing to the ears.
Sony MDR-Z1000: Excellent build quality (mind you, magnesium cups), industrial look, comfortable, balanced sound with very nice punch on the bottom end, detailed and airy treble, mids could give a bit more detail and body.
Sony MDR-MA900: Excellent comfort, a nice open sound with good soundstage and good imaging but the sound is decent, some bass emphasis but overall, not much detail but a relaxed sound. Very forgiving on poorly mastered tracks.
Denon AH-D2000: Comparing it to the K550, the D2000 feels better built and nicer looking. Comfort is hands down for the K550 but the sound is sonically better on the D2000. It can sound a bit harsh but at least, it has good mids and vocals with body (unlike the K550), a realistic and well defined treble (K550's treble sounds a bit artificial and piercing) and balanced lows with body and impact (K550 is tighter though), soundstage is not as wide as the K550 but more natural and better imaging too, overall a more neutral and accurate sound over the K550. But when it comes to isolation, I wonder myself if the D2000 is a closed or open headphone.
Fostex HP-A8: I didn't have much time with it but the sound was beautiful. Lush, smooth and lean. I spotted a hint of warmness but it had great detail resolving. It sounded very natural and musical .
I really want to hear the HP-A8 (as opposed to asking "why", why not?). I already heard the D2K but that was 2 years ago.
This. I see jgray's point. Sort of has this confused or surprised look.Quote:

Just watched the trailer for Unicorn and they had an in-space explosion that wasn't pink.post #37710 of 9705110/24/12 at 12:25pmWhat I linked wasn't unicorn?...
And I also said: Seems like the pink might be exclusive to in-space explosions...?
not the other way around that is "seems like in-space explosion is exclusively pink"
Besides unicorn was cited as one without the pinkness
