The diary entries of a little girl in her 30s! ~ Part 2 - Page 582  

post #8716 of 21760
Hm.. yeah. That helps a LOT Tangster. beerchug.gif

Little things like MF just mentioned hadn't occurred to me, and seeing it in proper color instead of trying to photoshop with my mind makes me think red is not going to work. I really love the amount of red and how it lays on the face and contrasts with the black in the body of the case, but the devil is in the details and it's just not lining up for me.

But...

Looking at it longer, the white lettering doesn't look bad to me, but the LED would certainly have to be changed. The lettering has to be white since it is laser etched, AFAIK. I think black would be too dark anyway. Silver would be ideal.

Hm.. I sorta still like it. I'll see what Justin can do with the LED.

That's basically how I view it, too. When my choices are narrowed down to two extremely highly-rated engineering schools, it's hard to think of going to either one as being a loss versus the other. So, it looks like RPI will be my school for a few years. I'm looking forward to the move. It'll be a very different experience from Walla Walla.

Lol, thanks.  biggrin.gif  But if I'm to be honest, there was a guy who used to post in here (obobskivich), and he puts me to shame.  Some of his posts were - well - very very long.

I need to decide if I can deal with the XLRs still being black. Justin's found me some red screws that are a pretty close match, so that's the only thing holding me back. The silver looks great except for the XLRs, but it might look OK in deep-ish red.

 

Gimme a few minutes.

How about this?

 

 

 

I've left the bottom one intact so you can easily compare.

Agreed, I've changed it to yellow.

My other gear is black, so it will be the only thing to draw attention. The red amp sitting on that silver CD player does look bad, but if the CD player was black it would look nice.

Fantastic Warren. The clearer image has really sold me on the red, though I will go white on LED. The yellow is interesting for sure, but not what I'm going for.

red amp + all black hd800's. If I think about it that way, and if you move the CD player, it is indeed nice :D 

 

Have you thought about

Im going to put my 1500th post here since this seems to be the place in which I procrastinate in the most. I still remember posting in the threads preceding this one and asking the most ridiculous questions (which is something I still do frequently biggrin.gif) but fellow Diary members would still try their best to help me. This helped me a lot through the years in which I have collected a small amount of gear which I have used and loved, this place also gave me a sense of acceptance in which through good times and bad times felt like a digital home in the vast world of the internet. So for all that I would like to use my 1500th post to Thank everybody ^^.

Yup, the very one.  I'm pretty accomplished at Quote-Fu, but he had these "song of his people" wall posts that went on for quite some time.  wink.gif

Thanks!  The trick was to leave the non-aluminium parts as-is I think...

I'm not really discontent per say but yeah I was thinking the same thing a day or two ago. Merge the best from the K240 with the best from the Q701 and AKG could once again say they had a headphone worthy of the name flagship.


I've been thinking whether or not to hit Heir Audio up for a refit. Some days I get on with my new CIEM quite well and other days I really wonder if my fit is an optimal fir or just barely sealing. I got to give this some more serious thought


On the lighter side of things, today I finally found my Harley Quinn. I've placed the order and can hardly wait until shes delivered into my hands
