Either way, a dac is a necessity. The macbook's jack gives off so much static.

It all depends on how you get to Uni and how much room you have there. For me, P-H worked just fine with my setup:

If you're gonna be flying to your Uni, then yeah, don't take P-H. Something like a Leckerton UHA-6S MK2 might be a good idea at that point. But if you're driving to your uni, you should have plenty of room in that big SUV crossover thing! :veryevil:

Suck on this! :D
They even have the option in there to use the Japanese names and voice pack!


Also: Welcome to this mess of a thread :3

 

Ah, yeah. I don't really mind though. At least it's coming to the US, that's what's important. For a while I didn't have much hope that it would.

 

I've posted here before, just not much because I haven't been super into manga/anime recently and have little to no knowledge about headphones and the like. Hard to jump into conversations when you don't know what you're talking about haha.

Hang on, you're from WA as well? :eek: What part of the state do you herald from sir?

They crumple so you don't.

If you don't mind dying in a crash though, you can always get a vintage car like my friend did. No power breaks or power steering, but it can probably run over smart cars without getting much more than a scratch:

I rear ended someone at 10 mph and it was on an incline so it crushed my engine without touching my bumper or even the other guys paint. Either way, I used to hate driving but using insurance check from totaled car I got a subaru impreza and my best friend got me into cars. Even though at times now I like to drive fast on twisty roads etc, I am a much better (and safer) driver so I think it helps to own a car you don't hate.

Even with my piece of schiit car that handles like any old American car would (like a boat, AKA bad), I still take corners I know probably a bit too fast. :veryevil: Though I don't so much anymore since I haven't gotten around to securing my subwoofer yet, and I don't really want it sliding around tooo much in the back of my trunk...

Finally got around to watching the Steins;Gate film, only to find myself so perturbed by the ****tacular subs that I spent the next several hours combing thru the script and squashing all the terrible grammar and typos in the SRT file. Should make for a much more pleasant second viewing

Haha yea. From CA to NY is probably a long flight...

 

I've been eyeing that small usb Dac thing, that's as small as a regular usb. For $90..it should be ok.

"Town so nice they named it twice"

//although I'm not currently there, I'm currently about ~2 hours from Seattle. Although I wish I wasn't. Picking colleges while undecided is very risky.

 

One of our older cars is pretty nice, although if someone hit this thing it'd be toast basically haha. But it can take corners like nobody's business, these things were made for corners.

You're joking, right?

Walla Walla (well actually College Place) is my home town! I'll be flying back on Friday!

Two of my friends there are into anime and have accounts here as well. There's @Chasenuva1 who you probably just missed for the night and Atominator99, who never comes on anymore...

 

Oh? What school are you going to? I'm going to UW and Atom is going to Western.

Yup, it's safe to say that if you're flying, don't bring large audio equipment. It's just a waste of luggage space.

The only problem I'd have with one of those dragonflys is that it sticks right out of your USB port, and might damage the USB port in the long term.

What the heck does "Bravely Default" stand for? Sounds like something the US government should do regarding its debt or something tongue.gif

Nah not joking. I'm in College Place, but since that's even lesser known that WW I just say that because most people get it. I go back Thursdayish maybe not sure.

Ah, yeah I know someone on here who has an account, although not sure what it is. He's basically the reason I have an account, he's been trying to get me into headphones since he "really" got into them. He's also who I get most of my manga advice from. I currently have a running bet with myself to see how long it takes him to find my account and ask me about it.


Western. I'm trying to transfer to RIT or (even better) RPI since I found out WWU doesn't offer either majors I'm wanting. Go figure. But costs are a pain and ehh lots of that fun stuff.

 

gonna edit...

Bravely Default comes from the battle system I believe. "One of the core aspects of gameplay is the option to both "Default", an option which allows the player to store battle points for later, and "Brave", in which the character selected unleashes multiple attacks in a single turn." from Wikipedia, but that's basically it from what I understood of Japanese demos.

Wow, awesome! Would you be down for a little meetup somewhere? :tongue:

 

Huh, probably don't know about that one yet. Both of my anime friends aren't into headphones toooo much...

Haha, I think I wanna do something with Computer Science, and WWU basically said "Yeah, we have that one", which completely ruled them out for me.

 

Lol. Is this friend who got you into headphones and gives you manga recs from Walla Walla? Might just be the same friend who got me into headphones and gives me manga recs as well. If it isn't though, you should talk to him about RPI, since he's going there right now.

I went to Western because I basically got distracted with HS and went with whatever since I was undecided and figured nothing could go wrong. A week before the "hey, I think I wanna make vidya games! Or architecture!" and when I got to signing up for classes and they asked what majors I was considering all they could say was "Uh, we don't have those. I'm sorry" and told me to put whatever I wanted on my schedule.

 

Thaaaat he is. I'm guessing we're talking about the same person, and I have a pretty good idea of who you are because he took pride in getting someone into headphones and often called it a success. I think you two swapped headphones once or twice? Something like that.

Video games? You should consider DigiPen. I'm a fellow Seattle-ite here too. Lots-o-people from Washington in this thread. :-o

My friend helped make this game as part of his senior project.



Bah, I'll just turn in my essay late tomorrow...I seriously need sleep. >.>

Er, I was more refering to potential colleges. I'll only get my letters in May. But the NY one I was referring to is Cooper Union. 

 

I'll prob get into Rhode Island School of Design pretty easily though, same with SAIC. 

 

It's the non art schools (like Yale/Carnegie Mellon/Stanford) that will be a reach for me, as well as Cooper, infamous for it's 60 acceptance out of 1000 applicants for its art program.

Damn, what a small world it is...

 

I'm assuming you went to Wa-Hi then? Did you ever take Media Technology and Animation with DeBroeck? I took that my first 2 years. Gah, how do I now know you!!! D:

 

Probably, LOL. We've heard all of each other's new gear, except the stuff we've gotten since going away to college. And I have bought some headphones from him and helped sell some old stuff for him.
