    Hello guys, came over from CS, I have a lot of pseudo science knowledge. I'm a aero engineer undergrad atm(post Air Force) Currently my ADC is bust but I hope to be able to contribute measurements in the near future.

    Hey, Ash here.Vietnamese. Been reading Changstar for over half a year now. High school senior. Proud owner of KSC-75. Ran into this site while researching on HD600s despite inability to buy one back then (and now). Hoping to buy one once admitted to college. Still dreaming of owning an HD-850 ( HD-800 with FR right between 600 and 650)

    Hi Ash, many many people wish for an "HD-850". That's why the HD-700 was such a disappointment. People weren't expecting a Sennheiser-Grado.

    Might want to check out the HD650 mods from the old site. I am have very happy with a combination of the quarter mod, the foam removal, and now the Dynamat (based on Bill-P's work.) Will post more this later. I have a lot of content waiting to be posted, but we need to get this battle-station operational first.

    About Me:

    TL;DR : I am awesome and have golden ears.

    I was a Scandinavian teen popstar named SWEET CREAM, however when I was excommunicated from the Church of Hot Addiction my popularity faded. Afterwards I did the only thing logical for a man with the name SWEET CREAM, I became a high end male prostitute. As I traveled Europe making love to the wealthiest and most beautiful women (sadly those two where not always mutually inclusive) in the continent I was content. However when making love to a French dutchess at the behest of her husband (my talents where widely known and respected) a suit of amour came to life and knocked me out cold and kidnapped the duchess. Shocked and angry that such a thing would happened in my loving embrace I set out to free my duchess. I learn of a powerful blood cult in a neighboring port city and headed there at once.

    Their meeting place was a popular bakery. As I sat there waiting for the meeting to start I order a simple éclair, I was shocked by the oral pleasure that the delicious pastry had given me how could something so simple be so delicious?! I walk up to the counter to ask to meet the pastry chef. When I saw her I FELL IN LOVE (note women; the way into a man’s heart is thru his stomach). As attempted to make her swoon (quite successfully I might add) out of the corner of my ear I heard heavy boots, the meeting had began. When they saw my face they immediately drew their swords, my reputation had preceded me.

    As I slay the last of the men I locked gaze with the head witch. After I believed her guard was dealt with I apprehended her to take her to somewhere more private for questioning . Just then a bystander attempted to put a knife in the back but the pastry chef chopped his head off. Together we took the witch to a private room where I got my information out of her with a couple of tricks I learn in Amsterdam (occasionally the pastry chef joined in). I was shooked to learn that the dutchess was going to be used as a sacrifice to free a sea demon and the leader of the cult was the CEO of the Dutch East Indie Company that was hell bent on controlling the European sea trading routes. The ritual was going to take place in the Isla Del Siren. The pastry chef then revealed to me that her baking secrets had been gathered from around the world in her pirate days. I killed the satisfied witch and we commandeered a ship.

    After a three week journey at sea spent in hedonism and debauchery we arrived at the Isla de Siren. We found the ducthess and fought Siren guarding her (the pastry chef using a sword that looked remarkably like Excalibur that I saw in a portrait when bedding a English aristocrat). My beloved pastry chef was mortally wounded but the actions of her assailant left an opening for me to thrust the Excalibur-doppleganger into the sirens heart. Before the Siren died she sang one final song directly into my ears, afterwards I could hear EVERYTHING. The earths electromagnetic fields, blood flowing thru the ditches veins, the slowing heartbeat of my beloved pastry chef. The Siren had given me a parting gift bittersweet as it was. After I buried my pastry chef and had return the dutchess to reclaimed my honor, I set out again on life. Sharing my gifts with a select few, here ex-pyrates I come to share my golden ears with you.

    RazrLeaf checking in. I was mostly a lurker on CS. Mechanical engineer by trade, and FOH audio engineer as a hobby for more than half by life. It was actually through the professional gear that I got in to high end consumer gear.

    Not sure I understand yet. So far it seems like moving from the actual cool part of town to the hipster part of town. As pyrates move in and lower the property values, it might turn out OK.

    I'll probably post some [email protected] stuff here. The show is next weekend (oct 2-4).

    Your adventure deserves a novel. Would you care for an "Adventures of Audiofrk" thread to guide us through your world as if the "Iliad & Odyssey" happened in another time with you as the modern Odysseus with golden ears?

    Congratz on getting the new site up and running!

    I came here from Changstar, my name was hendric0.
    About me. I am interested in all kinds of measurements and tech talk. Well, that's why i am here.

    I have been more and more interested with HPs now. I have had some gear on loan lately and some great meet experiences. My prefered sound is HD800 modded. I also like HD650, i think it also gets the tone right. I would prefere slightly wider stage unmodded, but i think that is where the mods come in.

    Pyrate Griffon signing in here! I'm an addict to UERM and mostly I dig portable gear. My Changstar time mostly was a learning process, and now I hope I can contribute in some way to the new site!

    Hi everyone, I'm Rob (though my friends call me Shem). I'm Shembot on another forum; some of you may know me or have seen me there. I try to keep a high signal-to-noise ratio, so I read lots and post little (and only where I have direct experience).

    I admire the dedication, intelligence, and no-holds-barred of the pyrates here, and I hope you'll find me fit to join your ranks. [​IMG]
