Almost "Made"

My expectations are set pretty low for the new Star Trek: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UoV3kc05Nwc May 19, 2017 at 5:55 AM

        You're only going to get to watch the premier episode anyways, unless you get CBS all access, or pirate it...

        Fortunately/unfortunately the whole thing is apparently going up on Netflix, outside of the US.

      Chris Cornell, fuck. A formative voice for me growing up.

        I hope his family will cope. That hurts.

      The Dark Tower trailer hit. Not sure I'm feeling Elba or Mcconaughey's performance, or the writing. Hope it's just the trailer. Link --->

        Yeah, it feels very different. And fine, adaptations will. But it just isn't landing. I was wincing at some of the cheesy "cool" scenes. GoT on the other hand is done really well, and offers something additive and of value.

        I actually liked it for what it is supposed to be. Nothing ever measures up to my imagination for these things, so I try to not hold movies to that standard. You should know that it is not set in the original timeline of the books, it is meant to be set at the conclusion of the 7th book, when Roland starts the whole thing over again.

        Haha! I didn't know that, that's great. Did I actually see the Horn of Eld in that trailer? Hmm. I didn't mind the ending of the books, it seemed fitting. But maybe I was done with them by then, and ready for it to end.

      Damnit. My desire to fuse a HD800 with the impact and solidity of a TH900 is driving me to consider poorly built, overpriced planars.

        Some planars have pretty good microdynamics, others not so much. They tend to have really excitingly unpredictable failure modes, though- and a lot of them have funny tuning (upper mid suckouts being the most common one).

        I guess the point isn't really "don't do it", more "if you do, research thoroughly". It's a minefield.

        Wait, you preferred the LS50 wireless to headphones? Big and loud? I never found LS50s to be competitive with headphones in terms of technicalities. And the bass was horribly distorted (as with all small speakers) with big midbass hump and absolutely no subbass.
        LS50s aren't great speakers. They're ok for the money, but nothing special.

        I meant literally, ie size and external noise. I had a brief demo of them at an event. It was more a comment on speakers vs headphones, not comparing specific areas of performance, as I haven't had the opportunity to spend time with high end speakers before. It emphasised a lot of the weakness' with headphones for me. Tonality, cohesiveness, staging, always having a major drawback or two.

      I sent you a convo with the details, let me know if there is anything else you would like to know.
