7.Final Audio Muramasa VIII
8.Audio Technica M50
Audio technica makes sushi machines? I thought that questions answer was Yamaha... Also, we could get a bunch of really good questions (no opinions/ head-fi exclusive stuff) and submit it to jeopardy.
This was the most expensive headphone ever produced, using a special amplifier for its electrostatic drivers. Only 300 were produced.
What is the Sennheiser HE90 (or Orpheus)
autech -> http://www.autec-usa.com/ (i laughed quite a bit when i saw the back of the machine at work, and it said 'blablabla model, audio technica corp')
also thle HE90 alone costs $6500 while the Muramasa VII costs $8000. only the HE90 + HEV90 combo costs the familiar $12000 - $15000
oh wait nevermind, i guess it is a rather bad question as the price may fluctuate.
side note: i wonder if the jeopardy cometies would take us seriously lol
They could. I mean, there's tons of random stuff on there, like urban dictionary was on yesterday. If we sent in questions like the ones I said, and some of the factual ones (like the audio technica one) they probably would take it seriously.
sounds like its worth a try, anyone wants to try and contact them?
I say we get around 10 REALLY good questions together first, and then we think about contacting them.

I've been doing that with the LCD-3. Currently, its 1/20th of a LCD-3
Maybe one of the biggest names in headphone market in europe? Its in the league of sennheiser and grado and the like.
You know you're an audiophile when you start getting pissed when the huge speakers used for outdoor events don't reach your level of expectations.
