    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.

      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.

      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 :))

      The point of totl gear should be that you have bought your way out. Nervosa should be the game in mid-fi.

      @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.)

      @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 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.

      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 :)
