now that we've managed to get a non-'glamour' shot of the 010, that doesnt look like it cost Y262,500 to make. or even half of that. or come to think of it, even a quarter.

EDIT: that jack! that neutrik jack!

I now think the 010 looks very nice...in its own "unfinished" way. I've gone from almost hating it, to almost loving it.

I'm guessing that the only reason as to why I'm liking the design is because I have a thing for the way speakers are constructed and look from the inside. But the outside of the headphone looks nice and I especially like the way the cord is attached right near the back of the driver instead of on the bottom of the earcup. Also, is it just me, or does the driver inclosure (indicating a bigger than average driver) look bigger than normal? Overall, I think it is a nice new look that does a good job in deviating from the normal, somewhat boring headphone design!

Brother, I have got my Prehead already and when are you going to buy your MSP?

By the way I have heard L3000 at hifi and you know what, MSP (non burned in) WAS more resolving and detailed than it though it sounded fuller, and had better soundstage than MSP.

i've decided to go back to the CD3000 instead of getting the MSP.. i got the picture that the MSP won't solve my problems after all, and i just feel comfortable with more soundstage then RS-1's/MSP's could give me..
although i'm sure that in many ways, the MSP's are better then the CD3000.
i'm now building a system to the CD3000.. maybe it will fit the RS-1 well, who knows..

off topic a bit, aren't we?

If I had dial-up, I'd hate all of you for these big pictures but since I have cable and a rather large monitor, I'm happy. I'm really starting to wonder how that headband feels. Really meshy.

you must have missed the thread made by one member (forgot the name) posting tons of pics of his new A900 then... i think it was like 50 pictures ? 320 pictures ? hehe..
good, or else you might have killed him for eating up your broadband usage.
