    Noble Audio - the Wizard returns!

    Yes, that's true, but mass media control by the corporate elitist pigs has become more and more endemic and might have had a hand in discouraging the series revolutionary spirit and so Lucas had to go along.

    I'm discouraged that LucasFilms is now owned by the corporate evil monster Disney!

    Ahah, still one more virtue to extol with the X7 which seems like a well thought out design feature.

    Well, I got news for you friend: lots of people now own the K10, having paid $1600 ot more for it. I'll bet the majority of them do not at all regret having paid that much money either. I count myself among them... and I am not rich by any means. As a matter of fact, I'm on a Disability income...

    Yeah well, some of us like cheese, no? lol. Would you care for a slice of Gouda? Just wanted to extol my confidence in a company that stands out for its Nobility, just like Noble, from which I am the happy owner of the K10.

    It takes one to know one. It takes someone awesome to know someone or something awesome, therefore, you RedJohn,  are awesome, my friend!

    Sorry for this seeming diversion from a completely materialistic take on electronics. Thanks, Zuvio for a very perceptive response to my admittedly somewhat mystical take on numerology and the Fiio X7. Glad there's at least someone else in Head-FiLand that can appreciate the invisible side to...

      Looked at my case and, you're right, no name of Pelican, just mine embossed on the cover

    Thanks Twister. I like the Noble cable that comes with the K10 because it's just the right amount of stiffness-flexibility. How would the RSA/ALO Kobiconn 4-pin balanced connector compare in that regard?

    Yeah, you are right! And without humor, my life would dry up and shrivel and for that matter, so would the planet. Keep those Head Fires burning, people, lolz.

    Haha, you actually put yours in the oven. I'm sorry but that sounds a bit ridiculous to me. On the other hand, if burn in using regular electrical run time is used, I'm sure there'll be an improvement, despite what many naysayers say. I experienced quite an improvement, for instance, when I'd...

    This time, goodyfresh, I completely agree with you. I wish some headfiers would be acting less overly strict. I've noticed this on many threads and I just think it is going over the line and will not stop or slow down what they perceive as wrong for these threads.

    I don't know of any music recorded that uses, say, the 432hertz scale, which the one originally used before the change except recordings before 1938 when this was imposed.   I must apologize for posting this on this thread, but, to be honest, I'm desperate to get this info out and so I figure...

    Ah, thanks for mentioning my post about the musical scale thing. I'm going to send you a pm about it now, since you show interest. I want to spread this info around, so that people can know how this affects health and moods, okay?
