        How's the soundstage with Modi MB?

        Seems a bit wider. Instruments on live jazz seem more realistic. Still getting used to the new presentation.

        The Mimby is awesomesauce, arguably all other DACs (including Schiit) are too expensive and money is better spent elsewhere in your chain (for most people). Says the recovering Yggaholic and current Pavane owner.

      I am listening to Tangerine Dream's album Alpha Centauri, 1971. Was a favorite then. Chemicals must have been involved. Too sober I guess.

        How true. Or a certain mind set. Still love Pink Floyd. But not every album every day. I'll try again some other day.

      Finally heard the Garage 1217 Horizon III with an excellent LPS. Should be on HD800 amp list for sure.

        FWIW, that LPS is pretty much the best you can get. They were close to $1000 when they were current and the measurements are insane. You're extracting the best the Horizon has to offer.

      Anybody know what the deal is with Audeze no longer offering the Vegan Pads? It's still an option on the LCD's but not in the accessories.

        Put in a call to one of their dealers. There are going to call Audeze. I expressed my displeasure with Audeze's typical crapola.

        I forgot about Peer Gynt (Suite anyway). I used to like it when I was a little kid. I'd like to hear it again. (I'm not a big classical music listener. But sometimes it just hits the spot.) Glad you bought it up, Ringingears!

        Seems a lot of us were introduced as kids, including my friend. I had him listen to the Paavo Jarvi version. It didn't do it for him. So I am trying to see if there is another version out there. Thanks.

      Up at Lake Tahoe for a wedding. Took the GO 450. After Mimby and now Gumby, I ordered an inverter so I can take the Modi 2 MB next time.

      My upgraded Gungnir now Gumby with Gen 5 was powered up Saturday at 11:15 a.m. Have an Eitr Mimby to compare to. So far not up to Mimby yet.

      Eitr plus Modi 2 MB. Great combo with Koss KSC-75 with cheap headband. Up until 2:00 a.m. last night listening to track after track.

        Amping with the Black Widow ver. 1. The KSC-75's scale like crazy. Just ridiculous. Especially given the price.

      Gungnir to Gumby/Gen 5 metamorphosis has begun. 112 F today. Gumby will be pre-heated when it comes off the Fed-Ex truck at this rate.

        I'm in PDX.. about 30 mins north of the path of totality.. didn't venture out as I had work, but the weather was indeed gorgeous.. and the eclipse was as cool as it was eerie. Really fun. It was bonkers here as far as viewing.. like the who damn west coast came here for it.. and by all accounts from those in the PoT, it lived up to the hype.

        I had 6 of my closest friends see it up in Oregon. They said it was nothing like they expected. Almost a spiritual experience. One said it made them realize how insignificant we are in the whole scheme of things. 2024 or bust!
