Because it requires me to press a button before even getting to the login screen and that's plain stupid. I want to get to my desktop ASAP. I thought Windows was meant for businesses and productivity. o_o

But... but... anime! 

 

Also, if you do CtrlAltDel to log on, the CtrlAltDel to log on screen is the lock screen which is nice.

Yea... that listing was there for a long time. I find that normally hi end stuff get sold pretty quickly. 

I didn't like the Alpha Dogs that much. Kinda thin sounding? A bit harsh on the vocals. I posted something in the thread, but I don't remember where. Apparently, Warren says that it might be too "fast" for my music, hence my discomfort. So, personally for me, it wouldn't work out. Not to discourage you from getting them.
I did quite dislike the paint job though. I think it has a looooong way to go for acceptable aesthetic quality.

Yep. Agreed on the DAP vs phone stuff. For example, my Kaedes didn't really scale up much with the Invicta (the only Hi-end I've heard extensively), and for a brief demo with the AK120 with music i wasn't familiar with.... well, I didn't hear a difference at all. People started laughing at me at the meet when I couldn't hear a difference between the AK120 and my itouch with IEMs like: 1P2, 334, Kaede etc. For full sized, I can definitely see why you would need something more powerful. I was quite surprised that the AK120 could power the HD800 to a pretty loud level. But alas, I won't be using a hard to drive full sized any time soon. Hence, I keep my allegiance with apple. 

Wait... Aren't you the one with the "less than perfect" Kaedes from e-earphone or whatever? wink.gif

The dent is on the filter, which is tiny, and not the phones themselves, so no biggie. I bet you can probably pop the dent out by gently pushing on the other end with a screwdriver or something. Anyhow, I ain't complaining. It's a crazy good price for what's essentially a portable HD-800.

Yeah I kinda figured the Alpha would be on the thinner side, it being voiced towards absolute neutrality and all. How thin was it compared to say the Kaede? I'd like to own a phone geared towards absolute neutrality just for reference purposes. And I heard the paint issues were being sorted out. Doubt that Mr. speakers would ship out a pair of phones in such shoddy condition. He'd have a **** ton of returns to handle

LOL at all the source freaks. Really boggles my mind man. My friend LCFiner told me about how he spent a **** ton of effort modding an AK100 to have less than 1 Ohm output just cause they wreaked havoc on a pair of Heir 4ais he had, then went thru some crazy firmware **** just to wind up with "somewhat better sound" than his vanilla iPod. He's hooked up his 1P2 to his Burson 160D and had a Bel Canto as a DAC, says a nano drives the 1P2 to like 90 percent of their capability.

With that in mind, I don't know how any of those people expect you to discern any differences whatsoever during meet conditions. :l

I think for the price. Why not? Shouldn't be too bad I guess. Oh, if you came for soundstage...it really isn't that incredible. Basically only a bit better than the Mad Dogs. Anything else is an exaggeration. Meh, I would wait until a good deal more reviews come out.

 

Maybe cuz I don't like the feel of buying a "modded" phone? Not sure. I would just buy an HD800 if i wanted "neutrality" and be done with it. I sure as **** don't know how neutrality sounds, nor do I care cool.gif. (this is meant to be sarcastic btw)

 

I feel that my impressions of the Kaedes are a bit skewed. If you tell me to compare IEM to IEM. It's fine. But IEM to full sized might be a bit difficult. So... meh. It's prob less thin than the Kaedes, but don't take my word on it. I have some tips coming in from Kalbee and Mechy, so I'm looking forward to how those might change the sound.

 

 

 

Oh, also another side topic. but the 1P2 has horrible build quality (compared with the K3003, Kaede and 334). At the meet, it kept popping out of people's ears, disconnecting and falling onto the ground. Almost had a panic attack when a guy dropped them on the floor (carpet don't worry) after it popped loose from the wire.

And of course they're all credible people? Because they spend lots of money on BHSE+009s. They have hi-end gear, hence their word is god rolleyes.gif

@ Bowei do you keep the pre-login screen enabled with the cartoon depiction of the Space Needle showing the time and weather? I disabled it because it's a useless screen that requires me to do one more thing before actually reaching the login screen.

This:

Ooh, I did not know about that installer! Thanks micey!

I really like the space needle thingy!

Exactly! This is what I use, perfect for the sleep screen ^^

 

Ooo, you have a surface pro???
Wonder what you do with those anyway? rolleyes.gif

All the BSOD's happen regarding either storage or memory access. All drivers are now installed properly but BAYUM....and it freezes it. 

 

Sometimes Page Fault BSOD's, sometimes other ones.

 

It's just Windows 8 with the bootcamp drivers for specific hardware. Know how? Because I can use Mac OS X fine without any errors.

 

Win 7 with boot camp worked flawlessly, going back to that. 

 

Anyway, using CrossOver to play G Senjou now :) Works flawlessly

 

I am sitting in an empty room with a Mac, headphones, and a charger. THANKFULLY, I was smart enough to back up the save data to dropbox before I sealed away my desktop :) 

LOL, reason #2304873204598713254 I'm not buying a mac anytime soon! tongue.gif

Okay...

 

Yes

 

I think I'll stick to white as a personal colour for maximum font visibility.

I don't see what the problem is, I can see the text just fine with my Dell IPS.

Besides, how many times do you actually look at the headers of those stupid programs anyway? rolleyes.gif

Ask mechgamer or miceblue to give you a kiss. You'll be better in no time. They are the service maids of this anime thread.

Hahaha, thanks guys. I'll, uh, keep that in mind. cool.gif

 

And no, I'm not in Japan. I'm in an exceptionally boring part of the United States until I come home from vacation and play with a good thousand dollars of gear I've bought while looking for something to do. floatsmile.png
