I'm a Tom Baker Doctor fan. I wish the classics still played on tv in the US. I have a bunch on VHS but no VHS player.

I used to use all of my Disney learning VHS to make castles and ****. Ahh childhood.

In any case it's a pretty convenient way to access lossless classical recordings where the CD equivalents are hard to come by locally.

Carpet installation next week will also be a pain. Somehow I will need to source a granite slab between now and the carpet installation. Silentone may be able to sympathise. Guess I can use a granite chopping board for the interim...

As a long term goal I'm considering empirical audio's OffRamp with an I2S connection, just need to make sure the connection can be configured for my DAC.

The new ibasso dap looks tasty. Kind of wish they went all out and copied the ak120 instad of the ak100 biggrin.gif. Guess that will have to wait. In any case the dx50 may very well be my next dap unless the new hifiman dap has low zout.

I don't really read many other threads these days...

 

I've been trying to go OffRamp>I2S connection for awhile now; cannot afford it... yet. Hope you get it! Steve has contributed to configuring my system in the past - a great guy.

My plan is to go spend the weekend in Japan, go to Fitear with my Japanese friend, order the 335 and Monet and pretend I live in Tokyo and have them delivered at his place. And the come to the thread and brag smily_headphones1.gif

I've also heard they plan on discontinuing the Monet soon-ish. When I was looking at some product listenings, it seems the Monet has indeed been removed on several of FitEar's publications.

I get the sense that the Monet is kind of a sore point for FitEar. Customers largely misunderstood what the point behind it was, thinking it was tuned specifically for today's popular anime soundtracks, when in fact it was tuned for anime soundtracks from the 70s and 80s.

Really, I just hope they continue to use Mone-chan and her oversized ears as a mascot. From what I've heard, I don't think this will be the end for the Monet concept thankfully.

Best and most honest head-fi rationale I've seen in a while.

Ramen (ラーメン rāmen?, IPA: [ɽaːꜜmeɴ]) is a Japanese noodle dish. It consists of Chinese-style wheat noodles served in a meat- or (occasionally) fish-based broth, often flavored with soy sauce or miso, and uses toppings such as sliced pork (チャーシュー chāshū?), dried seaweed (海苔 nori?), kamaboko, green onions, and occasionally corn. Almost every locality in Japan has its own variation of ramen, from the tonkotsu (pork bone broth) ramen of Kyushu to the miso ramen of Hokkaido.


Yes winks I even made my noodles from scratch. ;). So I made the dough and prepared them into noodles. As well as making my own dashi stock. :) It was very delicous and worth it. Just next time I may just buy noodles instead of making them lol....

I'd be jelly, but I kinda know what's around the corner, so I actually think it's best to hold off on the "current" Monet.

 

Hint hint.

Well if you are making a CIEM specifically tuned for 70's and 80's anime soundtracks, why not only sell it to Shinto Monks Preist who live a the summit of Mt Fuji and were born on the 29th of February.
