Discovered my hearing loss is worse than I expected. Perhaps I'll stay in mid-fi purgatory forever. Aug 16, 2017 at 1:19 AM

        Thanks for the sobering perspective, Thad.. that's a real shame to hear about your condition. I suppose the best thing to do now is to keep things realistic. At the end of the day I guess we're in it for the music, not the gear, although, chasing that ever-diminishing upgrade cycle still has its thrills...

        Believe it or not I still find plenty of pleasure in music, as long as it is not too loud or shrill. There are some tinkly bits completely missing, "air" is copletely missing, and timbre, eg of a violin string, is missing some harmonics. But it is still very much music!

        So don't worry. You're going to go on enjoying music for a long time, if not for ever. Actually, all that fuss we make about high frequencies --- most of the music just isn't that high

      Today I learned that A&K is the modern day reincarnation of iRiver. Apparently. Guess that explains their missing history.

        LOL, why do you think I still call them iRiver. They may as well be called Abbott and Costello.
