    Ordered today (Boxing Day) as my present to myself. I've been a very good boy this year :) Now just got to wait for iBasso to get back to work soI'm expecting it early 2011 & can't wait....

    They work during Christmas it's crazy. I ordered mine the 23rd, I'm receiving it tomorrow as if there wasn't Christmas. I'm very impressed. You'll most likely receive it this week. :D I got a D4 by the way.

    Oh wow, thanks Tinolo for that. Seems a shame that but I'm not complaining....

    You see Santa Claus all over China and Christmas decorations. I would ask people, when I lived there, what does Christmas mean? "I don't know but it is fun and we like to celebrate". It is big there, even in remote areas. It also starts early. But working on Christmas doesn't mean anything to many as it is an extreme minority that are Christian.

    ibasso e-mailed me twice following my order on boxing day and my P4 is with DHL already [​IMG] I think I'll have it in a few days and that is fantastic service in my book.
    I have bought this to upgrade my P3+ and will give some comparisons for those interested when I've had chance to take in the P4 sound...

    I don't know about the rest of the world, but in Canada, Christmas is when all the Jewish people get Chinese food because the restaurants are still open.

    ^^There should be a sticky or a wiki for Chinese holidays.  
    Always have to plan at work around Chinese New Year, etc.
    That might help temper some expectations when ordering gear during their holidays (not sure if regular operations continue for some vendors).
    More On Topic:  iBasso shipped D12 and then P4 to me so fast that I keep thinking it was like a day-and-a-half because they picked up my Sunday night order (it was already their Monday)...and I think I got it Tuesday in California.  
    That's just the best-case scenario.

    I once spent Xmas in Jakarta in an attempt to escape the madness - didnt work. Retailers everywhere embrace the opportunity to get consumers buying toys of all descriptions. Central Malaysia is the only place where I have managed to escape it, and that was largely due to the fact that we stayed in a backwater town - KL would have been every bit as crazy as Sydney or Melbourne.

    I think you would have better luck in North Korea or Pakistan.

    Thats exactly the kind of comment which would have had my post deleted by Commandant Erik, but clearly its different because you are an Americian. If you equate Muslim nations like Malaysia and Indonesia with rogue states like North Korea, you really need to re-examine your history. The Pakistan people are currently suffering on a daily basis because their country has become a haven for terrorists - I doubt that they wake up in the morning and think 'Gee, its great that Al-Qaeda came to our country when things got too hot next door'. Imagine Mexican drug lords establishing a foothold in the southwest US - unlikely that the locals would be happy about that.
    As for 'wanting to escape Christmas' by going to a Muslim country, it had little to do with religious beliefs - but then 'Xmas' has nothing to do with religion anyway. Its all about retailers and advertisers going into overdrive to hammer consumers into buying goodies they dont need in the hope that this will impress those around them. 'Thanksgiving' makes sense - 'Xmas' is increasingly irrelevant, IMO.
    Back to headphones and headphone amps :)

    Boy did you take that out of context.  Think Christmas, Commercialism and Consumerism.  Nevermind.  I have my own commandant to answer to but that's another story.
    Btw, I've been to Morocco, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Turkey, Jordan, Israel, Bosnia and OMG! Australia.  I have a minor in religious studies from University and one of my majors was HISTORY!  I'll let you reflect on that in hopes I needn't say anything else.

    Sorry for the "Christmas" comment... It has led to a few arguments.
    Soo,,, about the P4, I don't have one.

    I hear it warbles a little bit.
  14. estreeter


    I overreacted, and I apologise.
    Sadly, if the university I attended and the two I have worked at are any indication, history will not be offered in very many 'institutes of higher learning' for much longer. I dont know about the Ivy League, but here in the Mortgage Belt its 'just give me a piece of paper that will get me a job' ....

    No worries bro.  Best wishes.  [​IMG]
    PS.  It is sad History is getting the axe.  There will be a deeper price to pay for it in the long run IMO.  Back to the Warbler.
