Someone stirred the Schiit pot on Ad-fi and all the turds are floating to the surface... How Jason and Mike put up with it I'll never know. Feb 8, 2018

        So as a result of this (and the talk k.e. started in shoutbox about those new closed cans), I'm back on Head-fi for a quick stroll.

        MOAR bass on the closed cans +10-12kHz sizzle prolly means I'll not prioritise demoing them, cool as they look. Talk on the BIMBY (which I'm getting soon...) IS irritating, but potentially educational in the long term.

        Post after post of one line 'replies' to some in-joke that apparently about three people 'get', while normal people keep furiously scrolling, desperately searching for actual content until they (I) run screaming from the room. I can't do it.

        I've never understood the amount of bile Schiit seems to stir up in some communities. If you like how their stuff sounds or don't think it measures well, don't buy it. No reason to get angry or anything.

        @Lyer25 The Bimby definitely sounds great...mine has held me in good stead for years.

      Got a replacement HE-4XX, no more crinkled driver, woo! Let's hope these don't develop that issue too.

      Checking out Tidal Hi-Fi, A Farewell To Kings 40th anniversary, track 1 @ 1:20 has some pretty bad treble artifacts... Whats up with that?

        Could be audible watermarks. I remember hearing complaints about the Rush remasters in that regard.

        Poor master? I enjoy Tidal sometimes but there can also be the typical issues with masters. When they first started the MQA thing I listened through some of the albums and some had awful masters. Talking Heads' Remain in Light MQA version is totally effed.

        Yeah it could be a watermark, really hope it's not the master, or if it is the problem isn't present on the cd.

      I've seen it all, people are actually complaining about Schiit releasing an upgrade for an upgradeable product. Wtf.

      Really enjoying my HD6XX at work (instead of shp9500) fed by a Fulla 2, which is better than I thought it would be.

        Since I sold my Micro iDSD a while back I've been eyeing the Fulla 2 as a school/work replacement. Senns aside, anyone know how they go with the Fostex X00? Thinking treble might be a problem.

        I wish I could comment, I've been eyeing those fostex as a closed alternative for work.

        @LetMeBeFrank If you ever do get a chance to try that pairing, looking forward to your impressions! Conversely, I'll probably post some if I get a Fulla 2 ahead XD

      My HE-4XX have a crinkled driver. Sending it to hifiman for a replacement. Kinda pissed because I had a <#500 pair.

        Serial number I'm guessing

        Yes, that's the serial number. My question is why does it matter? Why would one even care?

        You got one if you were one of the first 500 to order, but you're right it doesn't really matter, they should all sound the same and that's what counts.

      Considering downsizing my main rig from a Jotunheim back to a vali 2, or maybe trying a magni 3. Thoughts?

        If you prefer tubes, Vali 2. If you want solid state, Magni 3 and if you want a bit of both Valhalla 2. What headphones do you plan on using?

        Right now my main rig is Eitr > Mimby > Jot > HD650s. I wouldn't say that I enjoy tubes or solid state more than the other. My priorities for music are instrument separation, detail and realistic cymbals. My current setup does all 3 very well, so maybe I should just stick with it.

        Valhalla 2 is my favorite amp under $500 for the Sennheisers. Really good holographic soundstage for the price.

        I'm 29, I grew up on the original trilogy, watched them so many times I wore out the VHS. I hated the prequels, but I really like the new movies. There were some things about this movie that I didn't like, but overall I thought it was great.

        I... I have no idea how anyone who grew up on Starwars could even accept this movie, much less say Anything positive about it. I'm not going in to detail yet to avoid spoilers but I have no respect for this movie. And again, I'm not a hater, I LOVED Rogue One.
