What's WIP?

Should be fine as long as you have the right bias voltage...

Oh nothing. I commented on Tangy's Reddit picture link(he also posted the pics here) of the meet.

 

And a newbie criticized my review as having only spent a day with it(I spent a month with it) and for not giving it burn in (my tour samples had 40+ burn in hours as they were on tour) and then cited a mental happening that happened very often with new listeners where after a few hours, he no longer 'heard' the harshness of the 3.Ai's and thus the burn in must be working right? Well, our brains will typically after we decide we like it to remove those 'harsh' things and make it so that that sound we hear is the new standard. Think back to your first headphone. You don't admit to it, but you started (for a bit) comparing other headphones and sounds depending on what you heard and liked from that new headphone.

 

But the dude did admit he had limited experience.

Did I just schiit on him? No. I was just defending myself. Do I not have the right to do that if I was criticized? Am I being confrontational? No I am not(and wasn't in my reply post).

Yeah, I can't be arsed to go over it again. So I just say stuff along the lines of "everyone's opinion is important". He hasn't actually bothered talking to you to ask you for your opinion of the Heirs or what you dislike, etc so w/e. Redditors will be redditors.

Where is this thread? I shall make an entirely new reddit account just to schiit on the guy. If he doesn't like it he can shove my 3.Ai in his arse. I'll take his in return.

1: He admits he basically has no experience

2: Him not hearing the harshness anymore is a common trait for newbies. Where they get used to it and then use that as a standard (subconcoiusly).

3. His claims about me and the conditions were all wrong. The 3.Ai I had were extremely burned in as they were on tour, and I had them for a month.

 

And not to mention, he never posted, or asked me about it and seems to not want to even talk about what he is hearing, and the causes of it.

 

And his attitutude

that greatly irritates me about bowei006's coverage of the heir lineup on head-fi.
 
Anyway, in his review he comments a lot on how harsh or sparkly the 3.Ai treble is, when that's not really the case in my experience. I call that 1-day review syndrome, where a review is made before becoming familiar with the product

You can see his post below. I don't know who downvoted him for spewing that stuff. But thank the guy who did. (I don't personally actively downvote people I disagree with. )

How much are the ClariS singles/albums from the place you purchased?
1238 yen or so plus shipping for reunion from cdjapan. I bought the irony OP from amazon.com for around $20 before I knew amazon jp was a thing.

Again, saying "it's not run of the mill" or "it's the best ever" is not convincing enough. I mean, who the hell expect that when pushing Madoka Magica for example to someone that dislikes mahou shoujo by using only "it's the best" or "it's not run of the mill magical girl show" is going to make that person watch it, without some hooks like "characters die for real in it" or "real mindscrew happened".
Um.. whereever the University of Nottingham is. I'm still clueless about malaysian geography.

Haha, but I went in to Madoka only because you guys said it's "really good".
But if you insist: Mindscrew does happen.

It's been fixed after I made note of what the hell people were doing
http://www.reddit.com/r/audiophile/comments/1d8ldc/projecth_dac_and_amp_we_built_this_from_the/

But here. 

Before this, each of my comments were downvoted 3 times.
lol you're a redditor?
I guess it's like their "culture" over there, the downvolts probably don't mean much.
That said, I've never been to reddit myself....

Eva 3.33 mentions that

evolved...

 

I just want to mention that species/things don't evolve. Populations evolve.

post #72507 of 137816

Just finished Eva 3.33. Initial impressions with zero? spoilers. 

 

I can see why some early reviews weren't favorable now. The weak opening; the complete snuffing of character development for everyone bar Shinji; the shorter, not-quite-as-epic battles in comparison to 2.22; the return of religious symbolism; and the poorly explained ending. It's very much a transitional film. A lot of info-dumping, some confirmations of things that were always heavily alluded to in the TV series and taken as fact by the fans but never confirmed, and the lack of a concrete explanation for the ending really leaves a much larger gap between 3.33 and the eventual fourth film. 

 

As for more specific annoyances, the first thirty minutes or so is largely filled by techno-babble. After all the character development for Asuka and Rei in 2.22, 3.33 barely allows them to play a part in the story outside of piloting their Evas (though Rei gets the better deal again). And sadly Kaworu's relationship with Shinji is given less time. 

 

It all adds up to a rather unfulfilling experience. Don't get me wrong, it's still Eva and it's still bloody good (the middle portion has some amazing scenes), but it just doesn't hit the same highs as 2.22. 

 

The ending is something I'm still wrapping my head around. I'm not quite sure if they're using it to set-up the finale of the series or if it was largely meant as character development for Shinji. I'd lean towards the latter, but due to the fact that KaworuXShinji is, as I said earlier, given so little development it really dampens the impact (no pun intended). 

 

 

P.S. The series is in completely new territory now. The only episode of the TV series 3.33 is even remotely similar to is episode 24 and that's only because Kaworu is in both.

I'm about to finish and I agree.

 

Yeah, I was going to ask if 3.xx is parallel to anything in NGE but after some googling, I can see not.

 

They from the start of this movie went into new territory.

 

And yeah,some of the cuts, scene changes were ...what?

Has yet to be revealed. After the second film I was very much believing the "TV series events actually happened and the movies somehow went back in time/dimensions/somethingweirdhappened and the characters are now re-doing everything with slightly different results" but after 3.33 I'm not sure.

Only things I noticed were a few line changes in the first seven minutes since the first seven minutes was all I ever saw of the theatrical version. There are some comparisons around on the web, but they're mainly about animation changes rather than script changes. But basically the CGI/animation was all cleaned up and improved as usual.
