    Feedback by 'analogbox' on listing 'Fostex TH-X00 Ebony'

    Sold a pair of TH-X00 Ebony to gruntfather. The transaction went smoothly. Would do business again. Highly recommend.
  2. Fostex TH-X00 Ebony

    Hello, I have a pair of Fostex TH-X00 Ebony that I'd like to sell. These have not seen much use since I was out of the hobby for a while so I'd rather find them a nice home where they could be loved and listened to as they deserve. These are in very good condition with the exception of a tiny...

    iPad 2 first impressions. Will you be getting one ?

    This concept of intentional delays always come up in a situation like this, but, in the business point of view, it's a bad idea because of the risk of getting a bad company image, and, most importantly, it's not worth it as opposed to actually selling the product collecting the net profit. Board...

    iPad 2 first impressions. Will you be getting one ?

      Quote: Yes. With the Japan's recent disaster, Apple will have a huge delay in it's production since Japan is one of the world's biggest micro chips exporter. But, even before the disaster, it has been reported for years that the suppliers are always struggling to provide enough NAND...

    iPad 2 first impressions. Will you be getting one ?

    Quote:     I just don't see that happening in any foreseeable future. The reason why Android feels broken is because they are not working with device manufacturers to ensure the solidity of the OS. Google just develops the OS and throws it at the manufacturers to figure out the...

    iPad 2 first impressions. Will you be getting one ?

    Quote:   That argument is really getting old at this point. Anyone who's spent a considerable amount of time with an ipad will tell you that's just not the case. The user experience is totally different. Try making a full size track with any synthesizer apps, or drawing, or taking notes...

    Best Rock Headphones - $350.00 or below

    Quote: Many people are recommending 225's and I do not think that they have harsh sound. It only sounds harsh when the music is recorded that way, in which case, many other headphones will share the same fate.

    AKG K240 Sextett--Grado'd AKG?

    You're probably right about the shipping. And, I have also bought a few things from them in the past so I know they are trust worthy. It's just that ordering from Frank would have simplified ordering of several different parts. Plus, it's kind of good to see companies backing up their products...

    Best Rock Headphones - $350.00 or below

    Another vote for SR225. Unless you can grab a pair of AD2000 for $350 which I've seen happen before. It's truly second to none when it comes to rock music. They are not so great for classical and jazz though. Also, your description sounds almost exactly like what I think of ES10's. The...

    AKG K240 Sextett--Grado'd AKG?

    Quote:   You beat me by a few seconds. If I saw your post before I would've just bought them from Frank instead of Sweetwater.

    AKG K240 Sextett--Grado'd AKG?

    Thanks for the info, Kevin. I will give him a call tomorrow and try to order those parts. Hopefully, it won't take three months to get here. :)

    AKG K240 Sextett--Grado'd AKG?

    Does anyone know how one can go about ordering some parts for sextetts? I saw a name and a number in an earlier post but that post was made about 2~3 years ago and I wonder if they are still valid. I recently bought a pair of sextetts (mp) on ebay but the elastic is very loose to a point where...

    ATH-M50 vs. HFI-780... or anything else?

    Out of M50, HFI-780, and HFI-580, I'd pick M50 in a heart beat although I still miss grado-ness of the HFI-580. But if you mainly listen to vocals and strings, I'd pick something else as recessed mid on M50 is quite prominent. Another contender is Audio-Technica ES10 and I personally think it...

    Help me ! Which earphones is my best choice with 3 drivers ?

    Quote: Originally Posted by songobill I prefer TF10Pro to SE530...although classical on Tf10 worse than SE530...but I think the ER4S better Were you reiterating what I said? Cuz, that's exactly what I said. And for classical and jazz, I'd prefer MD over ER-4S.

    Help me ! Which earphones is my best choice with 3 drivers ?

    Classical on SE530 was a no-no for me. The treble roll off really takes a toll when it comes to classical although it does sound good with vocal and jazz. I prefer TF10 over SE530 but classical music on TF10 sounds actually worse than SE530. I haven't tried any Weston phones but general...

    Favorite Test tracks/songs??

    Some of my benchmark albums are: The Dave Brubeck Quartet - Time Out (Always been my reference album as it has great sense of space and separation.) Oscar Peterson Trio - Night Train (As with Time Out, this too has a great sense of space and separation.) Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto -...

    Poll: Best IEM for Trance (any price)

    Perhaps next time when you make a poll, you can come up with a more reasonable list? I'm not bashing you or anything. It's just that you will never get a fair opinion this way because I highly doubt that they'll be any single person who've heard all the IEMs that you've listed in the poll, and...

    Poll: Best IEM for Trance (any price)

    Based on my memory, soundstage on TF10s wasn't as big as that of CK10s. Also, if I might add, for trance, you want something with controlled and tight bass, not necessarily lots of it because trance music are bassy by nature, and with bassy phones they'll just sound bloated and out-of-control...
