Good lord, McIntosh has a portable Amp/DAC now. It even glows (or is painted blue), but no bouncing meter. MHA50 Sep 27, 2017

        Are their headphone amp/dac offerings any good? I've never had the chance to listen to them. Pretty though... :)

        McIntosh has had what I would call a boom box for quite a while. I saw it in a store and it looked "cheaply fancy". I don't think it had a meter. It had a nice looking blue display. It was really expensive. I didn't ask to hear it.

        Made it to the third commercial break. Got pissed about there being more commercials than show between the second and third break. Stopped watching. Then realized it requires a CBS subscription and was glad I didn't bother.

      Well, I'm a year older today! My knees hurt and I need to wear glasses more often. At least I'm one year closer to retirement!

        @cizx.6 Yeah... I was going to say something about eyesight not necessarily being the worst thing about ageing!
        Could have been worse: at least I'm one of the *old* guys at the urologist!

      HD650 sale is off, while I waited for your response I purchased a ZMF Atticus that just came up on Headfi for a very good price!

      I appreciate your response, if they are still available in a couple weeks, and I don't like the Atticus, maybe we can hook up!

      Please accept my apologies!

        @Cash so what, you'll keep em for a month or two, complain that something is wrong with the headphone and not your aftermarket cables and then demand a refund only to do the same thing to @AllanMarcus?

        He never actually purchased my headphones. He changed his mind before the purchase.

      What was the name of that little 3.5mm adapter that removed the static from the IEMs? It was silver.
