My wallet thanks you for your support!!!
Seriously though, you're right. That's why I'm trying not to be tempted, but I think an HD800 is an inevitable part of my future...post #860 of 9482/25/14 at 7:31pmpost #861 of 9482/25/14 at 9:19pmQuote:

It is an inevitable part of everyone's future.
I went to a Hi-Fi meet recently and I thought I would see a few HD800's but considering the price, not too many. Boy was I wrong, everybody, their brother and their dog had a pair hanging around their neck. I tried to hide my HD650's so I wouldn't look so out of place.post #863 of 9482/27/14 at 6:42pmpost #864 of 9482/27/14 at 6:42pmpost #865 of 9483/19/14 at 11:22ampost #866 of 9483/19/14 at 11:42amIt doesn't get warm at all. It actually stays quite cold due to all the aluminum. It could be used as a monitor stand I suppose, but I don't think it is completely flat on top and you would need something to protect the surface.post #867 of 9483/19/14 at 12:42pmpost #868 of 9483/20/14 at 4:02am
