      Some good stuff coming in: Massdrop MEE PX (kind of Pinnacle P1), and Denon ATH-D7200!

        Can't wait to hear how the Denon compares to Eikon, so I can see if I should just sell the Eikon or sell the Eikon, buy the Denon, then sell the Denon!

        I was gong to say, what, no "alias" equivalent in Windows? But @Garns has it covered.

        I confess: I have a script called ipconfig that tells me I should have typed ifconfig! I suppose I could alias that, but then I'd never learn to get it right.

      I just put up a tread in the IEM forum for the new 64's. I know you're quite the veteran here, and I was wondering if you could ever spare some time to meet up and measure a pair of tia fourte's. I live out in Burbank but would totally be willing to make a trip to Calabasas for science.

        Apparently his founder-friendly terms means he retains majority control of the board, and his mother was recently killed in a car accident, so the leave is probably just temporary. Unfortunately for the culture that needs to change there.

        WSJ lost me when they went to color print. Their writers started to suck. Grade 11 writing back then now down to grade 6. I like Bloomberg, but scope of coverage is limited.

        On headlines: I hate how they make them clickbaitish.

        Despite the supposed super-fast propagation of news via social media and the internet, you can still get faster, clearer, less-edited, information via radio ... if you're willing to screw around with it.

        Getting a raw, not-intended-for-broadcast, feed is quite enlightening. And it's not even expensive to do.

        Yeah, my dad one time complained that a certain president had never released his long-form birth certificate, to which I replied he actually had, and then my father said that his news station said that hadn't happened, to which I replied "well, that's part of the problem"! Oy

        Considering nobody likes these new DC movies (until WW), I'd hardly think it's what millennials want. Remember, the older millennials grew up on some of the best DC animated stuff.

        This is simply WB not having a damn clue what their doing and just trying to jump into the lucrative superhero hype train half blind.

      Hi Marvey, I built a Madisound kit BK 17 with the fostex Fe168ez. They sound great but sometimes they sound a bit shouty on the high mid-range and hollow on the low mid range. What I did different from what you suggested is that I added stuffing on the back wall of the speaker and on the sides of the first leg of the horn. Not on all sides as I thought it would be very easy to clog it.
      What do you think?
      Thanks

        It's going to have to be pretty legit to trust dropping 6k on something made by a company with such flaky after-sales/long-term support. Glad to hear that it doesn't suck, though- detailed impressions soon?

        am glad the Fang Susvara sound superb! also glad I'll never fork over $3K much less $6K for Susv. maybe the eventual HE2Kv3 will sound close to the Susv for $2000.
