The pick at random method is a favorite of mine. If I'm looking to buy a cd at my record store but I don't know what to buy, I'll either pick a release from an artist I'm familiar with that I don't already own, or I'll pick something I've never heard of. Usually I'll pick it if the album art looks interesting or strange to me. Or if the artist/group has a name that piques my interest.

Schiit's got some really cool stuff slated for the future. Like... really freakin' cool.

 

Can't say any more for now! But I already know what my next purchase from them is going to be (besides the Ragnarok)....

So far I'm really liking the S-EM6. It has a somewhat laid back character, not unlike FitEar's house sound, but with a thinner type of presentation. The midrange in particular is really intoxicating so far. Bass lacks the 1Plus2's sense of oomph, but I'm finding it's tighter, faster, and more articulate than on the TG!334. Treble is smooth and less emphasized than on the 1Plus2 which makes for a less fatiguing type of presentation, but it comes at the expense of some of the 1Plus2's sparkle and more overt sense of detail. Spatially, I'm finding the TG!334 to be wider (left to right) but also flatter. The S-EM6 has more of a sense of depth by comparison, though the 1Plus2 still has the deepest "out-of-head" type of presentation. The S-EM6 does a good job avoiding a "blob effect" that comes from delineating everything too much into left and right channels; the instrumental space is nice and continuous.

This kind of signature is appealing to me. It's relaxed without putting too much syrup on my sonic pancakes. It's a clean and accurate sound, but I never feel as though I'm going to cut myself on its edges.

Oh yeah, and build quality seems fine so far. Pretty much average as far as CIEMs and universal versions of CIEMs go. Not up to FitEar level, but better than JHA.
Great concise impressions Muppet. These seem really nice and you got me tempted...don't you think they are a bit expensive though?

Try to check out pitchfork.com. They have nice reviews even if they are sometimes a bit snob. What works also well for me is to subscribe to the newsletters of labels I like, like 4AD.

Thank you MuppetFace, that confirms what I mean about S-EM6, we exactly ear the same ;)

 

Mimouille, if I can tell you my opinion, S-EM6 is not too expensive, not too cheap, just the right price in comparison to the international competitive.

Yep in a slightly disturbing but good way...the music is nice but takes another tone with the videos...and takes us back to how videos are part of the musician's message sometimes.

imo they are pretty hit and miss for me. Papi Pacify was great, How's That I enjoyed, Water Me was creppy... I like her voice not so much her looks, too childish but that childish look is what gives Papi Pacify it's deeper and darker meaning imo, 

 

so I might grab that album... see what direction they go into. I did like Water my lyrically and I enjoyed the story it told...

Well she seems pretty young and this is just an EP...so all in all not bad for a start.
