Krakin, are you some sort of mad scientist?

I would have replied earlier, but I was measuring the output of my amp with a yardstick . . .

What you hear is not the air pressure variation in itself

but what has drawn your attention

in the two streams of superimposed air pressure variations at your eardrums

An acoustic event has dimensions of Time, Tone, Loudness and Space

Everyone learns to render the 3-dimensional localization of sound based on the individual shape of their ears,

thus no formula can achieve a definite effect for every listener.

How do you like that keyboard? I was thinking about grabbing one, I've got the old school G15 with the flip up monochrome LCD since 2006, and the keys sometimes don't respond like it's dying on me.

I love the keyboard, it has plenty of keys, especially after the 19 extra, there is pretty much every type of sensor monitor for the LCD, some of them run slow, but not the ones like FRAPS or MSI.

The keys have a fairly firm resistance and when click make almost no audible noise.

Diffidently get this keyboard if you are considering it.

Thanks, sounds good. Yeah, I might end up getting one this holiday season, hopefully it'll last me at least another 5 years or so.

If the LCD doesn't go out (only thing I think could). You should be set with this, as everything feels very firm.

And all of my logitech stuff has always lasted forever.

Got my headphones and amp in!

0EE01C01-0EDE-4FF0-A1C6-46DF5C172B67_zps

My Schiit amp, the Magni.

7AE23E69-2375-4FCA-843E-04FCB6B74EA1_zps

6F91F008-97A9-452E-8FD4-FBD65AB0E910_zps

FDC733F9-5175-4A64-80E0-1982F5979CCA_zps

Now for the Sennheiser HD650's! I was very impressed with the shipping, the box/traveling case is very very nice.

F40D422A-4207-44CD-A6F3-826C7F452D29_zps

4ADED9A0-4C53-4C23-A864-76C4CAD79000_zps

A1481890-9FBE-49B0-8107-924EB14D7FDF_zps

D7D72822-2170-49B0-8F91-161AD8707B4E_zps

So far the sound is amazing, the amp is enough to power these 300 ohm speakers nicely.

I can hear in the sound quality test tracks when the musicians press down on the keys of a keyboard, or press down on a valve for their horn.

I will do an extensive review on these after I get 70 or so hours of play time on them, so that I can make sure that they are fully burned in.

By the looks of it im gonna say the RCA's at the back. but thats a bit strange for a pc amp. often they have digital in as well

PSN: Rcp_soundz

Good rule of thump is go by what fuse size is being used in these amps. The higher the more amperage it pulls, this is what I look at.

I'll stick a 300 amp fuse in a potato and sell it to you for $2k.

This is purely an amplifier, no DAC in it.

It has RCA input in the back and stereo jack output on the front.

This company doesn't make integrated DAC's with their amps.
