Are the currency investment forums now also having “analog vs. digital” debates? Dec 7, 2017 at 9:03 AM

        We should start up SBAFcoin. The logo could have an S but instead of lines through it making it into a dollar sign it will have a schlong through it.

        What I hate about analog money is the way it warps if you leave it out in the sun.

      The album “Spirit" by Willie Nelson is in fairly regular rotation for me. Wonderful SQ. Sounds fantastic on RPi>Mimby>Vali 2>6XX

        Wanna see no-shill journalism? In list of “Fave tech bought this year” Sascha Segan’s was a 2015 MacBook and then goes on to rail against the keyboard quality on new MacBooks. Dude can always be counted on for honest opinion!

        West German RCA 'Low' is the one to get, IMO. I have no complaints about the sound on that one, unlike all of the others (including Japanese RCA). 2017 is DR9.

        Agreed, West German RCA is the best digital version of Low to exist so far.

        HD280Pro *IF* you don't mind the idea of a bit of EQ to fill in the upper bass hole. Cheap, folding, good isolation, rugged.

        Can't beat wireless for convenience; I have Avantree Audition, lo-fi and boxy rolled off sound (fixable with EQ) but also light and cheap, controls on the left earcup.

        Momentum if you want to pay more - Dr Higgs is selling some.

      My brother keeps asking my advice about headphone stuff and then ignoring it. Now he has Skullcandy, Jbirds and some generic Chinese IEMs.

        I think it’s your brother who should be crying over his hearing or maybe he is just a Beyer guy... in which case he should still be crying.

      My bro was asking about buying TFZ IEM's off of MD. I suggested he wait for another RE-00 drop instead. Any other ideas in the $35 range?
      1. DigMe
        DigMe
        I think $35 is probably about the max he'll spend on IEM's but I know nothing about IEM's in this price range. No buds suggestions please.

        Philips stuff is actually damn good for the price, and I don't cry too much whenever the wires on mine give out (extremely unpleasant Philippine weather + my super acidic skin, hah). I remember gifting my sister the SHE3582 (maybe?) a year or two ago and trying them on; not bad at all for under 1500 pesos (~$29?).

        I currently use the SHE9850 as a sorta-cheap beater pair. All the cheapo Philips IEMs I've tried have this forgiving sound profile that's more bottom-and-mid centric, which works for a lot of modern tracks.

        Most of his albums already sounded as good as they’re going to get. Even the SHM-SACD of Rain Dogs was a barely perceptible improvement over the original CD.
