Separate names with a comma.
Rather than change the optical back to coax, maybe they can offer optical AND coax both?
didn't someone just say the exact same thing a couple posts up?
Well, this is supposed to be the big week... Originally I was told that they would begin receiving the amps in batches of 20 and shipping them out as they get them in the 30 days after 2/17. However, I am assuming that with the input issue they are having, their timetable has slipped by up to another month (!?). Even if Jerry came back with all 100 amps this week, the tuning would still take a while IMO.
Idle speculation at this point....
Any predictions on what we will hear this week? If it does slip again, will anyone be canceling or going with the IEMs only?
maybe all this was just a excuse in the first place as they needid another excuse/reason to delay the release after making yet another promise they knew they could not keep.
we will get a few more dates that will come and go and anyone actually thinking they would get this within the next 3 months at least is dreaming.
If this is the case, I am sorry. As much as I like Head-Fi, the more they rely on adverstising to generate revenue, I am afraid that unbiased reviews and neutrality about equipment issues will go the way of Stereophile and every other high-end audio magazine. This is commerce.
i think this is more about maxjam being a spewer of battery acid than an accurate reporter of bad experiences with vendors. virtually all of his posts have been vituperative and have not contributed to the discussion. if vendors mistreat customers this does get reported here. but ugly speculation with only negative intent is worse than worthless.
I agree with daveDerek. What good is it going to do if we just keep complaining? It's not going to make it get here any faster. They gave us most of the information that we need and they know just as much as we do. They are trying their best. Keep in mind its their first time doing something like this. I'm no entrepreneur but I would suspect that its not as easy to release something in this scale especially if you have to deal with a third party supplier too. Anyways, I miss my jh 16 pros but I'm sure it will be worth it. Just enjoy your other headphones in the meantime. Watching the news in Japan suddenly doesn't make my headphones that important anymore heh.
I think we should focus discussion on the JHA release. Jerry IS in China and working on the issues.
I am just at a lost on how long it takes to change an optical connector to a coaxial one? I would *assume* not a whole lot but we will see.
Head-Fi'er DaveDerek just wrote, and asked me to post the following message from him:
I just got a hold of a copy of jh3a+jh16a. fits me really well actually, I had to put on a rubber tip from another in ear to make it seal in my ear. my ear hole is a bit larger than the custom shell.
it has since become my favorite to go in office use. I have not heard the newer ones. but this thing is 2009 to 2011 seems like. it's quite marvel of a technology. you can see I been through many gears and this little thing compare really well with all my big cans.
anyone still keeping their copy? I got it for like less than 1/6 the price new. can't complain. even battery holds charges well. I think it's more like a collectible now. seems like the company's very early model and tried hard producing it. don't think there are a lot of copies made. originally was thinking of making some money selling it but after listening to it end up flipping other things lol. too bad the guy didn't find the 3.5mm adapter and seems like the 8 pin XLR it uses is not from this world.
I ran it through a hifiman HM802 using RCA to 3.5mm adapter. Sounds good out of any of my dac really, even hook up to audio-gd ref 10.32 extremely well too. Can't believe it was considered portable back in time. the hm802+ this thing is the size of those brick cell phones from 90s lol.
