        Fantasyland by Kurt Andersen is an interesting read on this, as it relates to that premise in the USA. Don't read if harsh criticism of organized religion offends.

        Thanks for that recommendation, going to read it. Sounds like it's not going to be much new information for me though.

        When I'm in my 60s, I'm sure I will finally love my beyerdynamic T90 s, which I bought years ago from a Frank Iacone recommendation...

        The guy mentioned Audio Science Review in his comment. I went over and decided to read their ODAC review. The admin plugged his headphones into the lineout and declared it inferior.

        Pretty sure that site founder has bungled measurements repeatedly... and refused to admit it until he tries again later.

        At this point I have to assume TiM is a successful parody account to explain "NwAvGuy and his designs pass the test of time, I know of Mastering Engineers that own and use his DAC & Amp.

      Always amazes me when switching from Spotify to FLAC how much less " plastic" there is!

        Spotify = PBS plastic. Pandora = Dasani PEt bottles. Pandora discovery / suggestion algorithm is great though.

      Modi2U 4399 vs 4490 : for gaming probably better to get the cheaper one.

        I'd say it really depends on the game, and how conscious you are of the sounds/music while you're playing. Some games really emphasize sound being part of the atmosphere (e.g., Hollow Knight, Transistor). Many others it's just sorta... there unless you make an effort to hear it.

        So how much time do you spend actually LISTENING while playing? Just my $0.02.

        That is probably why I feel it is worth it to purchase a dac for gaming. I prefer to "experience" games more than just playing it through. I usually play games many times through. Sounds are big part of that...

      So I bought another pair of Crossfade M-100 for general purpose usage. After the HD650 the only cans I have ever bought twice.

        Yeah, I know...I use these for fun. Mostly because of it's gaming accesories and portability. Having owned most of the competitors, I keep coming back to them.

        Then they must do something really well. If I have to buy another Brainwavz HM5, I will have no doubts. The same with my K181 DJ (I already have a spare one). I liked the Crossfade's design and construction. Never bought one as no one could personally recommend one...

        I suggest you try to demo one, at some point. Their tuning is not for everyone. Kind of like a guilty pleasure.

        Call it a minor aspect of an otherwise great film. If you have not watched BR2049, go watch it. It is worth the 2 plus hours of piecing together a beautiful puzzle.

        I will probably wait for the Blu-ray version, then watch them back to back. @Pyruvate , I watched the original quite a long time ago, good eye though! @Deep Funk. The dutch actress was excellent, never seen her before.

        Have to say, it's one of those films that is so visually stunning/beautiful, it's definitely worth seeing on the big screen.

      I'm doing the equivalent of an ear squint to pick up the nuances. Is better or just different. Is it worth the money?
