99% done with moving out. Just one more round of moving things and I am set. That feels good.
My Galaxy Note 4 died. Prices have gotten silly since the last time...not to mention the lack of headphone jacks.
Nokia's the budget king now. Nokia 7 plus especially. Support Suomi!
More like 'support Bill Gates'
Well any Android sold does end up "supporting Bill Gates". Nokia (or rather HMD) has been using near stock Android with quick updates and reasonable pricing.
SBAF is like 'Hotel California': "You can check-out any time you like.... But you can never leave!"
Won't be posting responses or answering PMs for a bit. Not ignoring anyone. Break time for main event.
I'm thinking good thoughts for you! I wish you a quick and uneventful recovery.
Surgery recovery is a good chance to read those books you always mean to read but somehow never get around to, I find :)
best of luck Bob. Wishing you the best.
Try and enjoy the anesthesia before you knock out ;)
KingRex Headquarters HQ-1 on loan ... Not bad!
New setup with Jonokuchi Kind of fits in the filling cabinet of audio... https://imgur.com/YbajExd
You try it with headphones yet?
A bit with my 650s. Sounds pretty good but have not listened very much yet.
Clearly people in the food business like their schiit: http://metro.co.uk/2018/04/21/shyte-chocolate-bar-mocked-crap-sounding-name-7485655/
I spend a lot of time on YouTube watching people play video games (it's a millennial thing XD). Anyway, this one guy playing the new God of War offhandedly commented he used to have an amp and DAC named after Magni and Modi, and my fanboi senses kinda shorted for a sec :))
That works for audio, but not food.
Some people are stating Wpc as power figure for audio gear: what is it? Watts programme? Internet is silent to me.
We're penis cunts.
Only some abbreviations are acronyms. The rest are... abbreviations.
Lots of dumb comments on this linked thread but this is an important post: https://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?p=19265680&sid=6844f67b8d95886b320633e1bb3c2814#p19265680
ECAF cap and tube nervosa...seems the closer you get to TOTL the further you are away.
Don't want to go down that path of nervosa...the pull to Dark Side is strong!
The point of totl gear should be that you have bought your way out. Nervosa should be the game in mid-fi.
Cap Nervosa (for me at least) was Sunday. Spent part of the afternoon today talking with @Melvillian about changing 7$ resistors on a $3K+ Amp.
Torrents are 17 years old now. Why can't Apple pick up downloads where they left off?!
two words....web sockets
Are web sockets used for the app store?
hahaha i dont actually know :P but you never know with apple...
Sir, good luck later this week.
Thank-you. I will probably refrain from posting much during recovery as I am expecting to have a rather hazy mental state for a period of time.
Finally 009S on Stax homepage: https://stax.co.jp/products/sr-009s/
@Lyer25 Good catch! Thanks!
@Vtory Crap, now I might get recalled. Ah well :P
Real talk, I was more focused on mid-fi stuff I could maybe afford from 2006-2014, pretty much ignored big boy talk apart from reading/watching the odd review. Having said that, seems like Edifier's making good use of Stax at least, which is something.
@9suns Glad to help!
Yup. definitely. They know how to handle paying customers for high end products. And I also agree that Stax is "reliably" lazy to refresh their products. lol. That's good thing for sure!
Unfortunately I was divorced from 009 two yrs ago mainly due to tonality and amp nervosa.. (This is why I am biased toward this news... oh well.)
I’m out with my pack of Corollas. We are going unicorn hunting!
@Vansen more of a reference to my midfi amps (Lyr 3 and MCTH) being referred to as Corollas. Only meant obliquely to reference @Luckbad mean custom title. It was not meant as a swipe at him, I apologize if it came off that way. I am proudly mid-fi and the S7 is hopefully the king of the heap.
I'm going to try to remain Mid-Fi this time around. One thing I've learned: Never play leapfrog with a unicorn.
Your metaphors crack me up. Thanks.
Slow and painful demise for the driver of the van in Toronto... Fucking Coward
A little bummed about ke. He could have been a positive contributor, but he had to be a dick.
Maybe. And if, under their new IDs, they follow the path of the true and righteous, giving the mods no reason to investigate... Welcome back!
I'm not a friend but I always enjoyed OJNeg's posts. Would like to see him posting around here again fwiw.
I miss the death metal eloquence of a Psalmanazar rant, but understand why he's gone.
Do you have any experience with this audio company and theirs preamplifier?ELECTROCOMPANIET
That does sound like a very good deal, especially for Brazil. https://www.hifishark.com/search?q=ELECTROCOMPANIET+preamp+4.7
If you need a preamp I don't think you can go much wrong with one those, do you need a premap? :D
Their amps always sounded a bit on the warm side for me, but quite enjoyable.
Yes I’m organizing a 2 way system here in my small flat
I wonder how posting behaviour would change if the "like" button were to be removed.
I agree with you. About its useful in saying "I agree with you". Is affirmation really necessary or useful? Not implying an answer. Just something I'm thinking about.
We're not supposed to care about likes and dislikes. It's not healthy to either. Do you think that this ideal reflects reality for many members?
I don't even want to diagnose myself so it's hardly wise to speak for the whole community. But personally I like the feature, I can see when the community likes something, which posts are noteworthy and I can track events etc. We're still a far cry from the karma whoring on facebook and reddit, in comparison to that this is a quiet pond.
Not much I think. When I appreciate a post, I like. Without likes I would quote or reply to say thank you. Most people here tend to be like that.
Finally offloaded Hugo. Traded for a Gungnir D/S (Gundis?). Somehow, I think I got the better end of the deal.
I'm so pissed at myself for selling these Tannoys (for too low a price as well)...https://imgur.com/8Zf3mpJ Really excellent monitors :(
If anyone runs into a pair for sale on their e-travels, let me know.
Focus on the fact you passed and hopefully learned, rather than performing for grades.
Arrgh. Meant to put that as a comment below yours. Congrats on passing all subjects.
I certainly learned, and had fun doing it! Psychology is an interesting field, and I genuinely love what I'm doing, and what I plan to do for the future. I know grades are pretty bull in the real world^TM, but there's a part of me that stays self critical.
Thank you! I sincerely appreciate it :)
