This is exactly what it looks like. New TV plugged into Mac with DAC and amp on the ground with my Q701

 

Watched Shinsekai Yori and Psychoo Pass. As usual, good psycho pass episode, interesting and very wowing and really interesting shinesekai episode but with the crappiest animation a front page anime has had in the last 3 decades possibly

 

I'l be able to do this much easier in the future. I'll have speakers next time and it will be wireless streamed instead.

That isn't to say keigo is particularly easy however, especially when you have to divide it between sonkeigo, kenjougo, and common teineigo. In Japanese when you're speaking keigo you constantly have to be thinking about what your social position is in relation to others. It becomes second nature with some time.

Speaking is definitely the easiest part of the language when you're up against the monster that kanji is to tackle.
Yeah, speaking is definitely the easiest. Though that applies to most languages IMO.

Nice insight you provided, thanks. I guess the transition is always hard whether from honorific to normal, or the other way around. I never learnt Japanese in any proper way so stepping up to honorific would be the bigger challenge for me. Learning slang is probably harder... way too much references I don't know. Btw, if you do not mind me asking, what country are you residing in?
I kind of envy you guys having Japanese courses available at your university. Mine for one does not so everything is self taught, or rather, piled up from years of deliberate exposure.

I think bowei is just spoiled. *cough*. Or he does well in school and his parents reward him. Could be either.

 

Bleh I still haven't get my refund money back yet. Looks like I won't really be picking anything up BF season. Hopefully 1964 ears will have a winter holidays sale or something.. $350 for the v3 would offset some of the customization costs since they charge extra for recessed sockets :c.

I'm currently a sophomore attending Cornell University in NY. To be honest my Japanese study history isn't exactly normal, as a pre-freshman I took an entire year (note: summer AND academic year) where I literally did nothing but Japanese courses from 9am to 4:30pm every weekday. A bit different than the normal freshman but being motivated it was a really fun program!

 

Basically, in one year I did the equivalent of 3 years of university Japanese; I'm currently in 4th year (normal) Japanese class at the moment. The focus shifted from mainly speaking and reading to pretty much reading, presenting, and typing up papers etc. I just completed a short research paper on Japanese's OLs and their role in society haha

 

We're currently reading about recycling and how in Japan at least, it may not be the most eco-friendly thing to do:

 

for some reason the image uploader is making it flipped lol.

Gah, my iPod is screwed up... for some reason, it sounds like the DAC has suddenly started clipping through the line out. Kick drums and other instruments sound "grainy" (not sure if that's the right word), but they lose their detail and screw up the sound and stuffs. I tested the same song being network streamed straight to my iPad, and it didn't have the same effect. I then tried it with my iPad lined out to my O2, still sounded better. So I did a hard reset on the ipod, and still sounded bad. So I'm in the process of doing a factory restore and putting all my songs back on. Hope to hell that my iPod isn't giving out on me, that would put a damper on Cyber Monday sales if I have to spend at least $70 on a new logic board to fix this thing... >_<

I wonder what the danger of nonrecessed sockets is. The CIEMs I want don't offer recessed. T.T 

 

I do need to buy something soon though, my grades are dropping by constantly being on Head-Fi T.T

I think nonrecessed are actually safer than recessed. Recessed are easier to get moisture and dirt trapped into them and then you can't clean it out and then it's just broke. 

 

Nonrecessed you might just snap the pins off your cables or accidently pull them out more often.

Unfortunately taking that program has given me 40 credits of language of which I can only use 6, I was going to pursue a major in East Asian Studies but I'm now a Comp Sci major w/ a minor in Asian Studies. Going to take Japanese Classical Literature next semester to keep my reading in good shape!

The really short LOD going from the iPad to the O2 looks uncomfortable, haha.
