Re: Amp for Senheiser HD555's

2nded. The 555s are by all accounts nothing to write home about, and even if they were, they don't require amping.

Better off putting the money into a better set of easy to drive phones.

1525 should be more than capable of handling normal res stuff.

IIRC you don't have a DAC - why were you trying to use ASIO?

Re: Matrix Cube + Corda Swing?

Return the Cube. Buy the DACMagic. Use your current yamaha amp until you can afford the T-33H.

Re: USPS starting to suck.

It wouldn't be so bad if their tracking system was in any way useful.

A mate at work and I had parcels send on the same day. His arrived in Aus the same day mine made it to the sort facility in the US. Tracking status for both packages hadn't changed until that point.

Re: USPS starting to suck.

Starting? USPS has always sucked, hasn't it?

But yes, it seems to be getting worse.

Re: Grace M903 thread

Re your skipping: I used to get it on occasion with my netbook -> O1, usually if a background scan or something was chewing IO or CPU. Haven't had it since I started using the iPad.

Pretty damn soft and comfy, although they have a habit of turning inside out when you remove them.

Re: Brainwavz canalphones now in stock :)

It is tangle free, IMHO. It's not *curl* free, but they get a metric fuckton* less tangled than any other canals/buds I've owned.

Very, very happy with my M3s (coming from RE0). This much bass in a canalphone is such a novelty :D
