Lol. The price for getting stuff first. I don't regret it though.. They do sound great and is one of my all time favorite cans.

 

Yeah, Dsnuts my friend, we have to learn to be a bit more patient. Well the XBA-4 got me at $364 when it came out, so I understand. That was my lesson of "never again." lol

 

Yes, I'm really enjoying these headphones. I can safely say they are my favorite headphones *surpassing my beloved S500." But you can't beat the S500 for the price, I think.

On that note. I have decided to take a completely new turn in my life and I am now enrolled in medical school.. Dr Evil approves!

 

 

Congratulations!

Thanks. But and there is a buttt. I will be jobless for a while so that means no more discoveries for me for a while.Which is a good thing. I am all about the new stuff I got recently and some older favorites now a days.. I have too many headphones and earphone for a life time anyhow so now I am learning to appreciate what I have more so than looking for the next big deal.

 

I haven't been in school for a while so it will be interesting.. One thing I did discover though. It seems the majority of the students and staff at this particular college I am going to are female.. It kinda reminded me of when I was attending CU back in the day for something like Sociology. The women out number the guys like 8 to 1..

After I graduate I might have to change my name to..................................Dr..Nuts.

 

In all seriousness. I had to take their entrance exam.. They had a wonderlick test as well as a math test.. I suppose they don't want to let retarded folks in the school.. I had to get all dressed up to be approved by their head Dr..Which was a very nice lady. I was also surprised they did a background check..Gotta make sure I ain't no smooth criminal.. I got accepted and just like that I will start next Monday..

This is interesting. It is a US made PCM2704C (Newer Chip) DAC. A US version of the ELE dac but looks like it is made better.

The WS99 can be used outdoors while the A900X is more for the home. The WS99 does have the bigger brawnier bass region and what I stated earlier was correct.. The A900X has a bit more treble energy and less bass over the WS99 with the wider stage.

 

I like the fact that the WS99 has a different sound over the A900X or the AD900X.. Happy to own all of em. Each one has a different sound. I have all 3 hooked up to my MX2 and all 3 sound great to my ears.

Haha, I own both A900x and AD900x. Nice to know that all 3 has a different sound. I may be getting a WS99 soon to complete the legendary trio lol (after auditioning of course).

It does look like a DIY kit one of those kits you can buy at a Radio Shack to make a little radio but hey I think it kinda looks cool.. It is a $25 dac and it seems this guy uses premium parts with the PCM2704C.. Which looks to be a newer version of the PCM2704.. I bet this sounds good.. $25 plus $2 for shipping. Anyone want to try/ take one for the team?

Congratulations on getting in to medical school man. The medical field isn't going anywhere, so you shouldn't have to worry about being jobless once you complete it. How long is going to take you?

 

Btw, did you ever get the E12? I'm looking for a portable amp and this will be my first one. Would it be a good choice to start with? I want a neutral amp, but I'd rather it be warm than bright.

Being outnumbered by women (unless they are all mad at you) is never a bad thing, Dr. Nuts. lol beerchug.gif
