    LoL yeah a musician…

      Yeah. Making music without even monitors must be hard.
      But he sure knows to crank that J Bieber up on his Bose SoundDock.

      Looky- Pathetic? Strong words for no apparent reason. Just appreciate the set-up for what it is at face value. There’s no need to have a go. Secondly I never understood this whole idea of hating on someone because their parents have purchased expensive things for their children. I see so much of it on the net and it’s just sad. You don’t know for sure that it was bought by his parents and even if it was, why does it matter to you so much that you have to bring such negativity to the post. Sounds like personal issues misdirected. Simply put, grow up and pipe down.

      Dean- nice set-up.. Looks good.

    Uh, I would consider myself a musician, and I also have a laptop and headphones. Why is everyone freaking out? Take a chill peeps.

  3. Ted says:

    This is complete and utter nonsense.

    There are no speakers and no instruments not even so much as a midi controller, this is not much more than a collection of laptops surely?!

  4. James says:

    Got those same headphones. Love them!

  5. Jonathan says:

    BTW: The iPad 3 does not have LTE. LTE is available just for the latest iPad (“iPad 4”)

  6. Jonathan says:

    Musicians who don’t use speakers are no musicians.

    He could have done this all with Windows PC’s for 1/10th the cost of all that crap.
