Wow, I was expecting too much "ooooey goooey" with the ZDT jr. and Amethyst combo. I guess I might be wrong. At least with the Atticus... Jan 13, 2018 at 8:45 AM

        If the ZDT Jr isn't too different from the actual NBM stock sound, it's not gonna be super-gooey anyway. The NBM has a little bit of romance in its soul, but is refreshingly straight forward in general- quite an achievement for something transformer-coupled at that price. I did like mine, while I had it.

        Even better with warmed up tubes, and switching to higher impedance is working well with the Atticus. Curious which jack the HD650 will like more...

        The Bills sent a nice thank you note to Cincinnati via twitter. Pretty awesome that they went for it on that 4th down.

        Had no choice on the 4th down play. Less than a minute to go in the 4th quarter.

        Bills fans have also been donating to Andy Dalton's charity, which is a very happy side effect to all of this.

        One good thing about that piece on HF is that a Senn rep said that the HD650 may remain in production depending on how the market behaves. Oh, and apparently the pads are exactly the same, so if there ARE changes, it's a soft update?

        Sadly the Amazon call center person told me that until the sender files a claim, they won't get a replacement. And of course, in my demented fantasy, the grandparents, being technologically inept, can't pull that off. Thus leaving their little darling sad this x-mas. Its really a me problem. I know the reality will not be as emotionally satisfying as what's floating around in my head...

        I decided after careful examination of the amp pictures Marv posted that I don’t understand amp topology or parts quality. If randos think it is cheap quality, I think should cancel my order, right? ;)

        Cool. If you can, please check out Ampsandsound. They have a new phono pre prototype they're showing and I think a VPI Cliffwood, even though its been properly bashed about here. Be forewarned, Ampsandsound isn't always well loved by SBAFers. Any feedback would be appreciated. Not looking for anything too specific...
