      OMG this AES PCI card bullshit is not bullshit... (converted BNC into Gumby). Will throw some rambling in the thread later

        @kirayamato it's a pci card, to a little sescom transformer, to bnc, to Gumby. Same as Marv first post in the Lynx thread. Different than the Jensen isobox for analog (to be clear)

      Interesting, audiologist just told me I was her only CIEM impression in 2015,and only in the first half of 2016. But recently it's exploded

        I remember getting my first CIEM fit in 2009 and had to call around. The audiologist that ended up doing the impression charged $20 and was more in awe at the concept of a CIEM than anything.

        @ButtUglyJeff buried in the text is the reference to a new flagship planar. The Shangri-la is the 50K electrostat, which is pictured

        Someone should write up an analysis of the lightning pace of planar product lifecycles compared to dynamic, cause/effect etc. I'm guessing relatively small size of the planar companies operations has something to do with it, and of course the end result is debatable (poopoo QC, money grab).

        Nothing crazy, anticipating needing a little boost on the 4670k when the GTX1080 arrives, so getting started early. The GTX 970 had a good run, even stock at 1080p and 1440p, but struggles with this newish 3440x1440 ultrawide

        I have a 4K monitor (huge waste of money), so I'm golfing out to the 1080ti or the Titan. I'm on the x99 platform, so my chips are slow compared to yours at stock frequencies. I burned out my old Mobo trying to get 4 ghz

        That's a bummer, thanks for the warning. Yeah I felt 21:9 1440p ultrawide was a good sweetspot, and looks really cool for the games that support it. Plus the length is nice for productivity. We'll see if this haswell i5 can keep up with the gtx1080...

        To be clear, it was a separate shipping event from sending to Marv for measurements. Also don't put expensive stuff in a Newegg box before Xmas

        "I posted a note on the site just now explaining the purchasing is now subject to more stringent fraud controls as we've had several people rip us off using stolen credit cards. We lost several ETHERs this way. It's not enough to cause us huge harm, but it really does hurt to be taken advantage of, and of course as a small company even a few thefts of this size are pretty bad."

      Well, a few days days after blowing out a LISST, Mjolnir 2 likely uncoincidentally went out in very hot style!

        Yup acting funny for a few days and took out a lisst. Left channel got crackling sounds sometimes then it finally got incredibly hot and either blew out the tubes or just shut itself down. Unsure which, didn't want to turn it back on after the that

        Yup I have, submitted my ticket, got the RA number and just dropped it off at UPS. Did the same a couple days earlier for the single LISST blow out, which likely was related in retorospect. Haven't heard back from a real person so idk if that's true or not. It was wild, it would have freaked me the heck out if it wasn't acting up for a couple days leading up to it. Still love them, as long as this goes well
