Went for a short and somewhat cautious run, after nursing a persistent injury for nearly a year.. Feels great, so far. Mar 27, 2017 at 7:08 AM

        It's a very zen activity thats for sure :)

        Can't say that i have. Will have to check it out, been meaning to read more but other stuff always happens.

        Btw are you a minimalist runner or a regular kind? Personally i reduced allot of injuries after i went fully minimal, i even wear minimal shoes in daily life for a couple years now.

        Oh, then I hope you enjoy it, it's an interesting read :)

        I tend to favour the "natural" end of conventional shoes, like Salming, Newton etc. The mileage-friendly Newton road shoes suit me very well. I do own a pair of Vapor Gloves but use those for walking around in the summer, they're very comfy.

        Aha, i considered vapor gloves once. But in the end i stayed with Vivobarefoot, those have the widest toe box for my flintstone feet. No insole so maximum ground feel, the padding is in my feet now ;)
        Durability could be better though and also once they start to smell they are done haha. Maybe it's better with insole, i haven't tried.

        But not so useful if you're running more than the Sonarworks VST :(
        Tidal can still feed through JRiver so that's at least a good thing...

        @Kattefjaes I mean that if you use more than one plugin, for example both Sonarworks and Waves NX - like I do - Sonarworks systemwide will not be a good alternative for me. If it can double as a wrapper for other VST's that would be nice. But until then - it's JRiver forever.

        Hah, it just so happens that I'm listening to the orginal mastering of "The Orb's Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld" (one of my favourite things) right now, specifically "Spanish Castles In Space", which sounds a lot like the first time you hear the Infinite Improbability Drive used.

        Lynching? We tend to stay polite here. To bad being polite for some randos means you are a door mat.

        When people stop having manners, you have to show them the door with or without boot.

        I listened to this album twice last year and couldn't bring myself to do it a third time. Just waiting for my vinyl copy to arrive now. And yeah, the whole Hesitation Marks "audiophile" debacle was hilarious :)

      AAC transcodes of music now syncing from JRiver to iTunes, and thence onto the iThingy, which is now officially a second class citizen.

        Remember- everything sucks. A DAP seems like the best bet for music right now, mind.

        Edit:

        Also, the Apple stuff seems to be unable to grok Album Artist tags, so compilations are just a mess, grr.

        Yeah, I am pretty much at that point too, with JRiver. It's just Apple stuff that is being janky and irritating- it also ignores the "Album Artist" field. Doh!

        I've never thought of them as industrial, but I guess the distorted vocals on that track can give that impression.. Admittedly, they did also touch on thrash metal, drum and bass and other things, too on some tracks, as well as their usual epic stadium house and ambient sounds.

        ..but yes, The KLF, never knowingly understated!

        Tighter lows than a (good) sausage's skin. But still thunderous. The Jodie and Martian play well together. My favorite thing about that pairing is how much the soundstage opens up.

        I hadn't really noticed the soundstage- I was using them as noise blocking while working from home, I will pay more attention. It was the clean, deep, tough bass that grabbed me by the throat. I love it when headphones sound neutral and only become bass monsters when the track actually demands it.. that's how it should be, IMO.
