Review: Honda Fit

March 22nd, 2007

Well, I’ve had 2007 Honda Fit Sport for about 4 months now and I’ve already put about 14,000 miles on it. Who knew I was doing so much driving. Overall I’m very happy with the car. The size is great, gas mileage is excellent and it’s much faster then I was expecting. I have the sport model which adds in a number of things including power everything, cruise control, fog lights better stereo yadda yadda yadda. If I’m being honest though I bought the sport model because it has cruise control. Sure, it’s nice to have the rims, the ground effects and the paddle shifters but those were not deal breakers for me. If I didn’t have cruise control I would not have a license.. so it’s worth the extra money for me.

In Remembrance…

Well, it has finally happened and though I have never mentioned anything about it on the Blog, my mixing board has died. While I do enjoy servers and photography my first love is audio. I am in the process of building a recording studio and was using a older mixing board made by an English company called ‘Soundtracs’. I had the 16 channel version of the Solo series. It was a very basic board lacking any kind of automation or other advanced features but it had a rich punchy sound that I just loved.

I bought it I would say about a year ago on Ebay for something like $300 USD and had no idea what to expect from it. I had read a lot of information about the board and it came very highly reviewed by almost everyone I could find that had used one but I hadn’t heard of it until it was recommended to me. The seller, being in Canada, started the shipping process. It took ages. I thought the jokes about Canadians being slow were just jokes….Truth be told it was US Customs that held it up. A ton of paperwork had to filled out and faxed to all corners of the galaxy and then signed by George W himself in order to get the thing moving.
