    The NIKON Thread (Talk About Nikon Stuff here)

    ultimately, I love the 24-70 and 14-24, the nikon counterparts are better. I just don't have the money right now for both of those, along with a d700. Hell, I think 17-55 would be great too. I just happen to pick up the 16-85 because it came with the body for only 1829 from B&H. So I have an...

    The NIKON Thread (Talk About Nikon Stuff here)

    Dj mocok has a running joke of posting really bad shots in this thread. Look back on all his picture posts and you will see what I mean. However, if you check his gallery, he has some nice shots. Its real night and day.

    The Canon Thread

    looks like peter has 'L' fever. Also i think its unfair to compare a $400 sigma lens to $1200 'L' canon lens

    Good Tube Amp for Denon D2000/D5000?

    the singlepower website hasn't been updated in years. There was a 'press release' of sort in the mall-fi section. However i think we lost it when head-fi crashed.

    What's with the bassheads?

    bass helps you feel the music. Just like at a concert. Its a state of being where bass isn't a regularly experienced thing unlike vocals and 'most' of sound spectrum. I love Hip hop and techno, a lot of the 'musicality' comes from the beats pounding your chest( or in our case eardrums). I been...

    how to get a good balance of life? *spending habits*

    i myself have the same tendencies. I love gear related hobbies. Wether it be paintball,PC gear, or hi fi audio etc. etc. At one point i was just like whatever, no more deficit spending. I hate giving away money. I feel like all those interest charges are as such. I dont spend nearly as much as i...

    Another limited edition A900

    as i a big 'A' series fan, im going to have to pass with it only its 900 designation. Why? because at $300 the a900ltd or a950ltds are a great sounding can for the price. However im not paying the extra price just for Titanium + limited edition status. I really wish AT would release a new...

    Amp/DAC for $300

    theres not alot in that price range, i think the beresford or zhalou 2.5a with the headphone amp upgrade. However, i dont know of the performace of either. Another option would be to go for the original master for <$200 and an entech number cruncher off of ebay.

    Dac/amp combos perfect transportables?

    This is kinda in response to Boomana's thread about portables not being able to power the 701/650 properly. I was thinking about criteria about recommendation on amps. Usually its someone maximizing their budget on their headphone like a 701 because everyone raves how good it is. As a stopgap...
