      Chester Bennington of Linkin Park dead. Don't listen to them much, but reminds me of my youth whenever I hear them.

        Hybrid Theory and Meteora got me through middle and high school. Still listen to both those albums from time to time. Can't believe he's gone. I feel so sorry for his family, the man has 6 kids.

        Yep, many good memories of their early albums, which I still listen to occasionally as well. RIP

        I don't think it's snake oil. Tubes have a lot of downsides in terms of energy requirements and compactness. The article says this is for guitar pedals which really have limits in terms of using tubes. I consider this similar to the Nutube.

        Hm, it does have some interesting electrical properties. The main difference from a NuTube is that this actually doesn't require a vacuum. Hell, they mount these things on sim cards for their testing!

        Could have interesting uses in solid state amps in the future. Providing a few circuits with different tunings the same way some DAC manufactures provide different filters would be cool.

      650 has arrived. Not disappointed at all. Should keep me happy for quite a while.

      HD650 ordered. Gotta spend part of that tax return on something frivolous.

        I don't even remember what the stock hd650 sounds like anymore, listen to it for 30m when I first got it and modded immediately, haven't had the open-back headphone itch since.
        It's all amps and dacs now.

        No time to mod for at least a couple months. I think I'll get to it sometime this year though.

        That's not frivolous, that's a necessity.

      Waiting for the right deal on a HD650. Seems stupidly expensive in Canada.

        Amazon UK is a great suggestion. I just checked new shipped to USA and paid with USD - USD 271.53. I have seen them for less, there. And I don't know how that would translate to you in Canada, but probably too high right now.

        The lowest price I have seen, from a business, is $250 USD shipped to USA. I don't know how that would work out in Canada. It was amazon.com "Used Like New" from Amazon Warehouse Deals. I bought one and it was truly "Like New".

        Unfortunately amazon warehouse doesn't ship to Canada.

        I checked Amazon UK and I could get a new pair to Canada for around $400 cdn all in. That's $100-150 cheaper than most Canadian retailers.

        I'll keep watching Amazon UK, seems like one of the best possibilities.

      What audio equipment brings you the most joy? Portapros in a ski helmet with a bt adapter and a tiny fiio amp makes me smile like an idiot.
