How cost ineffective is it for a high end headphone manufacturer to provide a balanced cable and an adapter to single ended? May 9, 2018

        Instead there's almost always need to reterminate to 4-PIN XLR or even buy a new cable because the standard cable is too short (hello LCD-2C).

        It's principle. A balanced termination cost at least 200 bucks extra.

      Damnit, the second micro SDHC card died in my RBPi3 in merely 2 weeks. Bought a Samsung Pro Plus now, hopefully it dies at least next year.

        Sorry to hear it. Might be worth looking at some logs and seeing if the card is being thrashed with IO for any reason (though with 2 weeks it's probably just a lemon!)

        What brand and model was the card? That seems highly unusual. What's your use case?

        Just running Volumio off it. First brand was Transcend and second Intenso. I know I kinda cheaped out on them probably but I thought we'd be over the worst days of SD cards.

        Couldn't format any card or remove partitions. The reader simply could not access the card properly.

      Been gaming with 3D Audio since the good old A3D days and the "renaissance" of it makes me happy. 3D (obj. based) Audio should be mandatory.

        You can get the Waves Nx head tracker for $100, and the os-level software for $10.

        Stick it on any cans and get the same 3d sound.

        As far as I can tell the Mobius is an Audeze Sine with an active Cypher cable and a Waves Nx tracker in one convenient package, plus a few buttons and a BT receiver.

        Convenient enough that I ordered one, but nothing you can't do already.

        yeah, but I want games and their respective middleware to create a binaural stereo outpout through an object-based renderer. Like for instance in Resident Evil 7. Afaik Monster Hunter World offers their own binaural approach too. More of this please.

        Ordered a Moebius too. :D

        That's going to happen inevitably.

        Windows Sonic is built into win 10 and if it isn't in the ecksbawks it will be soon. That supports up to 1000 objects I believe?

        It's also necessary for proper vr audio.

        It's going to be in every major middleware in short order, though game development being what it is, it might take several years to permeate.

      pondering about building a dedicated low power, small form factor pc purely for music, to finally avoid using my HE gaming PC

        ok, you know what I did? I skipped the NUC and bought a RBPI3 and the Alllo Digone SPDIF/BNC out, also to avoid buying any current Intel platform. Will set it up tommorrow if it arrives and listen for a few weeks until I go for a PSU - nothing crazy though.

        Iirc you need some really premium linears to beat the iFi iPower.

        In any case, have fun playing with your pie :D

        looking forward to it =D, and how it improves upon my PC. I have my eyes on the iFi iPower already.

        Thanks for all your suggestions!
