How much of this is orchestrated by the companies and how much its impossible to keep things quiet because of the number of people involved is difficult to estimate. But how many others think that this is becoming REALLY tedious. I'm personally now completely ignoring these immediate post-announcement reviews with pre-production cameras and jpg. samples taken from the few battered cameras that are couriered around the world to sites who make their living from "being nice" to the companies who send them cameras. The hyperbole, the fanboy (or opposite) speculation, and above all the general innacuracy of whats written is becoming ridiculous. Its usually worse with some retro "lookaleica" and its currently in full swing with the Sony RX1, which is assumed to have a similar sensor to the D600. The latest headline is "It is my expectation that the Zeiss Sonnar 35/2 will outperform the Leica 35/2 Summicron-M" Yeah Yeah. OK I'll sell everything I own on your say-so. Then of course, you actually read the piece and discover that the person making the above assertion hasn't actually even had his hands on a camera!! Unbelievable but true."

 

It's remarkably similar to head-fi in that sense. I guess that's why I haven't upgraded my equipment in over five years.

Also, regarding Audio-Technica, I've heard that the AD2000X is going to be released by the end of this year. Looking for a source to verify this atm. Also there's this:

If this is true, this is the greatest news. Hopefully that means the whole line up is renewed too.

Those new ES looks classy, like always.

The beauty of the SGS3 lies in its thinness/unobtrusiveness in your pocket, so why spoil that with a hardshell case that doesn't add much useful protection at all?

 

Oh and btw, get yourself a HS3000 and try it with your short cabled SE530 and Neutron Music Player. jm2c.

 

Those Zazzle cases are rebranded Speck dual layer cases with a rubber layer on the inside so I think it should be helpful.

 

Does that bluetooth thing have a mic in it?

I love how she stares at you while making those faces.

That's from Nisemonogatari, the second season. The first one is Bakemonogatari. I don't know if the 1st has landed in the USA (the 2nd one I canbet hasn't landed yet, since its air time was last winter in Japan).

About that tooth brushing anime girl: She must have terrible teeth and they must hurt like hell when she brushes them. I can't stop staring in agony.

>not saying anything since it's spoilery

Actually Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
it's her brother that's brushing her teeth. Over a bet (of something IIRC). And now some of you are disgusted.

I kind of have a thing for large mouths and teeth...

 

Edit: *reads spoiler*

 

Psh, that's not so bad. I was expecting a worse context.

Yep. Plus, it supports aptX over bluetooth, which is more reliable and better sounding than conventional A2DP. Together with the SE530, it's a really nice sounding, minimalist wireless rig.
