You will get sick of head-fi - Page 10

post #136 of 215

This thread kind of reminds me of a monkey ******* a football...

I'm still only starting out with head-fi compared to some others but I definitely get what you're saying.

 

My grandfather owns a 30 year old B&W system that was state of the art back then - it only plays vinyls but it still sounds stunningly good. Better than most $5k systems you here in the shops. A system like that is as far removed from flavor of the month that you can possibly get but it's still a valid system that plays wonderful, wonderful music.

 

Something to remember - at the end of the day it's about the music and not the gear.

 

Your journey with music shouldn't end but your journey with head-fi might.

It is a verb. Throwing is not it...

Ok, last guess: Trolling?

Try putting all the "four letter words" into a post and adding "ing" to them and watch what happens when you submit it. That might give you a clue. biggrin.gif

 

(Unless you already knew that, in which case my sarcasm detector might be broken today).

May as well throw in Op Amp rollers too.

And while we are at it, all DACs sound the same.

 

Fact:

The analog output of your iPod is all you need!

 

I have spoken!

The subject is closed!

 

Foolish Earthlings!

Prepare to be annihilated!

The alien invasion/destruction begins tomorrow!

Or maybe the day after tomorrow.

I giggled out loud. Bravo

Laugh all you want.

Laugh while you can.

The aliens will annihilate you first!

 

I know this is true, because I saw the movie Prometheus and came to some very rational conclusions.....................they are coming! confused_face_2.gif

Nah, might as well say that if all working cables sound the same, then night is day and the sea is land.

"What!? You don't like Marmite? Are you a Nazi?"
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is abject stupidity.

Clearly some people are sick of Head-Fi because one of the most popular forums in the Lounge is about being sick of Head-Fi.

There is a lot of crazy conjecture, unprovable claims, and headphones filled with Blu-Tack here.

>I drilled holes in the baffles, rewired them, filled them with tissue, applied the dickman™ mod, set fire to them, buried them in the garden, and when i finally dug them up they sounded like HE-500. I showed them to my wife, and she was so impressed she kneed me in the groin and finalised the decree nisi. Then I chopped up an old belt and glued that to them. I can tell you I get some impressed looks around town.

I have nothing against modding, but jeeeesus.

Pleased I just bought the HE500's instead of going through all that malarkey!

 

Yeah there are a lot of mods on here and I'm not just talking about peeps that like "The Who".. I've been guilty of a few; removing the foam out the the 650 drivers and replacing it with toilet paper was one of my most revelatory moments in this hobby! And it wasn't even the posh quilted stuff!
