Long time no see! I'm doing great. I feel like things did get easier by starting new section for help and recommendations though. I guess it keeps everything nice and organized.

 

That it does!  But somehow it lacks the urgency the old thread had.  It was like having to pee really bad all the time.  Not exactly fun, but frenetic and exciting!  :smile:

You should re-instate it then notPeeing is everyone's favourite pastime not really.

Half kidding of course yep

 

It's very annoying to shift through nowadays, seems like the usual people have mostly given up.

I'll be pitching in from time to time.  But still so much out there that I haven't heard yet, as always.

It's harder for answerers to response to recommendations/questions with this set up. I do pop in there every once a while, but I feel like I liked the old method more.

Lol. I still have less than half of warren's posts. Still, it was good times.

btw, how did yo uget 544 posts? You must have been following that thread for a while!

Since November. Actually Doc (who was the 4th most frequent poster on this thread) started another recommendation thread prior, since the original wasn't getting much traction, then we consolidated into this one.

 

Actually, I more often than not had 10-20 quotes within every post so the 544 number is a little lower than then the actual reply count (it should be in the thousands). So before you joined in (around April) and when Warren joined in after I asked in May, I had to answer everything myself from November to March. There was some help from others but they quickly phased out after a short while

Great work! That must have been very hard. Even when warren and I were working together, it was pretty hard to keep up with all the questions.

I think it would help a lot if people actually read some stuff around here, and did more lurking before asking for recommendations. Well, at least that's my style.

Well, I must admit that the search feature of head-fi isn't the best.... but yeah. Googling might be a better option to do some research. I think those seeking help should be open to lots of options. For example, if some one asks me to choose between a superlux iem and radius iem, I don't think many head-fiers can answer that.

 

Also, we should have a criteria that help seekers should fill out(we had this for the single thread, but not anymore).

Some thing like the following(I filled it in as an example):

Price range: $500-$1000

Source/amp: AK100, UHA-6S.MKII

Style: In ear, around the ear(ear guides)

Isolation: Needed. Good isolation is a must.

Comfort: Don't mind too much.

Sound preference: Neutral sound with wide soundstage and good imaging.

Music preference: New age, easy listening, rock.

Yes, if people listed all their info like that, it would be much easier to help them with recommendations. But there are still lots of newbies that don't really understand what a dac or amp is for. Also, a lot of people don't actually know what their sound preference is, especially when they're starting out.
