Perhaps it would be more comprehensible if we followed Dr. NakaMat's recommended brainstorming regimen:

 

1. Get four hours of sleep per 24 hour period.

2.a Consume no more than 400 calories daily.

2.b Consume Dr. NakaMat's patented brain enhancer snacks.

3. Have your entire bathroom gold plated to assist in the flow of mental energy.

4.a Swim in your pool, only surfacing when you reach the threshold of losing consciousness.

4.b Jot your notes down on a plexiglass notepad using special water-proof markers.

 

Remember: oxygen is bad, and you must be on the verge of passing out in order to ascend the Pagoda of Creativity!

 

 

 

Oh, Dr. NakaMats how I love thee. You may remember I've gone on at length about what an amazing f'in human being he is.

I still think this guy is crazy but he may be getting a few things right!

A few updates....

 

 

~> The EarSonics SM64 should be in my ears by tomorrow morning.

 

~> I plan on posting initial impressions of it along with some impressions of the T-Peos. I've been promising the latter for a week or so, but now I've had a bit more time to process what I'm hearing.

 

~> Sort of had a moment of kinship with the Tzar 350 this morning. Specifically, I've been really enjoying listening to Coil through it paired with the UHA-6S. I wouldn't go so far as to say it was an easy listen all of a sudden, but I most definitely felt a connection to the album and appreciated the Tzar's immense technical capabilities. For sure, it's a top contender among in-ears and full-sized headphones when it comes to extracting every last detail from your source material.

 

~> I've decided to put in an order for the Heir 5.0. The custom 8.A is an enjoyable listen I find, and since the 5.0 is supposed to take after it to an extent, I figure it will make a good foil for the analytic Tzar 350.

 

~> Speaking of putting in orders, the Cavalli Liquid Glass should be coming in the next few days. I've been missing it ever since last year's audition. I could easily "retire" with this as my summit-fi dynamic amp, but I'm not sure I'll be able to resist the pull of the Eddie Current Leviathan down the road.

 

~> Sent the Apex Glacier back to TTVJ for a replacement. As I've said several times by this point, the sound of the amp is very nice aside from the hum; in particular I thought it had excellent synergy with the Sennheiser IE800. I'll be trying the RSA Intruder next if the issue remains. Really, I may try it out anyway even if the Glacier replacement works out fine.

 

~> Heir Audio's Rendition 1 portable amp looks interesting. It lacks a DAC module, however. A fellow head-fier in one of its dedicated threads posted that at a price point of $339 he'd be surprised if it included a DAC. I wouldn't be surprised myself, but then I suppose that's another instance of my being spoiled by the UHA-6S. Still, I'm interested and may go for it along with the 5.0 (to take advantage of the discount apparently offered on combination orders).

 

~> Aside from the Intruder and Rendition 1, the only other currently available amp I'm interested in now is the BAB-1. Specifically the one optimized for IEMs. On the horizon however there's an upcoming portable amp I'm really looking forward to, one that has me falling for it head-over-heels based on the planned feature set and folks behind its development. Can't say anything more as it's one of those "secret" products at this point, but I'll be sure to keep diary members posted as things are revealed publicly.

 

~> I think I just might get the Woo WA7 Fireflies. Last night during one of my dreams, it made a guest appearance along with some FitEar CIEMs. Now, one thing you rarely see in those glamor shots for the WA7 is the big umbilical cable sticking out of its rear end which, in turn, leads to an external power supply that is almost as big as the amp itself. Still my lust for this amp is strong.

 

~> Oh, and on the CIEM front: my impressions have been received by JH Audio, so my JH-3A seems to be getting underway. My other impressions should be making their way from Jaben to FitEar as well. Decided to go for all red on the shells for the MH335DW. Now I dunno 'bout you, but for me the thought of vibrant red CIEMs paired with a black WA7 is amazing. Sensual desktop audio.

 

~> I appreciate the vote of confidence in selecting playlist themes. I'll post the first theme by the end of this week, if that works for diary members.

LOL!

I knew I had seen him/heard of him before!! Dr... TAKE MY MONEY!!!! :rolleyes:

I have had some feedback on the sm64 placing them at a comparable level with the 334 and 1plus2...which is crazy for the price. Which model did you get ? Batch 1 high impedance or batch 2 slightly lower ?

Fine by me. The weekends is casual thinking days.

I half wonder whether there should be a video diary thread.

There isn't any chance that you'd want to add an XB800 to your collection is there? ;)

 

I'd even do a trade with cash with that E-Q7 bwaha.


Not really interested in the XB800 but I wish I could find a XB1000 for cheap. I used to own the XB500 awhile back and I doubt the XB800 has more bass then the XB500. The crazy thing was just bass and little else. It's probably the only can I've had on my head that could vibrate my fillings if I turned the volume up high enough. If you would like the Ortofon's PM me. The pricing is in Canadian dollars and since I consider you and others on this thread an online friend I'll knock off 20 bucks. That should make shipping to Oz quite affordable. I'm getting tired of having them sitting on the FS forums and having low ballers PMing me with silly offers of 90 dollars and below.

 

P.S.

In case any passers by read the above post no I'm not selling them any cheaper then the reduced price I have in the FS post. The offer I made is for a_recording and other team diary members only due to the fact I consider them all online friends.

Let's hope it doesn't take to long. To much popcorn will turn me into a whale.


 

As time goes on my Facebook page is becoming more and more a geeks paradise come true. As far as the eye can see we have silly jokes audio gear galore collectable figurines and the odd funky iOS pic tossed in for good measure. I'm starting to sort of understand why some people use Facebook.


Another post add on:rolleyes.gif

 

The more I mess around on my laptop with my CLAS/amp setup the more I'm noticing some rather disappointing short comings involving iTunes. Using it as a music management solution is perfectly fine but as a pure player it's becoming more and more obvious to me it sucks. When I compare it to VLC Music player there's no comparison to be had. VLC wins on sounding far better then iTunes could ever hope to sound. I'm guessing it's time I made the jump to another music management program that can match and hopefully surpass VLC media player. There's got to be a few computer audiophiles on here so what do you guys think is the better sounding software package, JRiver or MediaMonkey? Also, can someone tell me exactly what the ASIO plugin does and why I should use that setting? Please nobody say Foobar. I tried using that program a year in a half ago and all it did is make me want to chuck my laptop across the room. Oh yeah, I also need a player that will support ALAC AIFF and FLAC.

My old place had nice built in shelving which I used for most of my gear. The new place lacks this feature, so most of my stuff has been in pseudo-storage. Since I've got some new gear coming in the next few months, I figure it would be best to finally get some new audio racks. Problem is, a lot of the racks with four to six shelves have less space between shelves despite offering adjustability (as there's only so much total room). This is fine for solid state gear, but tube amps tend to take up more vertical space what with their Frankenstein's lab aesthetics; as a result, I've opted for several tri-shelf units side-by-side.

 

For the time being I only need one for the two Cavallis and my Float transformer since my DAC stays on the desk. I don't use my CD player or turntables much ATM (though this will change after my next move hopefully). The second and third racks are reserved for tube gear and their power supplies...

I'm contemplating a new project, restoring an old "beater" rifle, but I don't know if I'm skilled enough to pull it off. If nothing else, it would add a .33WCF to my collection, though I would hate to muck-up an antique.

 

The 80's as I saw them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pk30a0qsVIk

Every time I hear this song, I flashback to high-school for some reason. Have no idea why...

post #7020 of 21761

Oh man, why didn't I run across THIS before I pulled the trigger on all my gear. Yes it's 4000 bones but it's still not a bad price for what's being offered.

Hey MuppetFace, do you just use iTunes when you're on your computer or do you use JRiver of Mediamonkey with ASIO plug-in?
