      Anyone ever hear the Parasound ZDac V2?

        Yes. Warm, somewhat gooey, pleasant tone but un-resolving. Complete shit-fest via USB (not great via S/PDIF). Non-starter with low-impedance transducers. Better off with a Ross Martin PCM1794A if you need balanced output. Any Schiit amp will beat it's HP output.

        Thanks @Torq ... sticking with the Mimby for now but I'd like to find a good balanced DAC at some point. Ross Martin looks interesting for sure. I guess I should start saving for a Gumby.

      Well that was probably the craziest hockey game I have ever seen in my entire life. Go Ducks!

        I hate the Oilers, so I loved that. Hopefully, the Ducks will finish them off next game.

      Any recommendations for a surge protector/conditioner that doesn't have a negative effect on sound quality? Sub $300 ideally.

        How many outlets do you need?

        I would try to avoid anything with MOVs, chokes, and isolation transformers if you want a conditioner that doesn't affect sound quality. Computer-focused power products have great outside noise reduction, but typically do nothing about noise generated by the components themselves.

        Ideally, 6 to 8 outlets. After reading the thread Dino linked to, I'm considering the Emotive CMX 6 plugged into a Tripplite Isobar.

      I'm taking a break from headphone forums for a little while but I hope to meet some of you at the SBAF gathering in June.

        Didn't matter. Whoever thought of it would think that way whatever you said. Now it's been posted where more people can see it.

      The main headphone thread on Headfi is getting spammed hard right now. Hope no one tries to pull that shit around here.

        Just depends on how fast it's reported to the admins, and how long it takes the admins to take care of it.

        I wonder what the new platform has changed, compared to the old website, that would explain the explosion in spam...

        Probably no change in the spam level at all, just a change in the defences. They are not catching it and stopping it.

        Now, about that black magic...

      Don't you just love it when someone on Headfi offers to trade you for something that is worth less than half of your classified? F#$% off.

        It would be funny to reply "Sorry, I can't do that. I will trade you [something worth less than half of their item]." and see the response.

        Spoilers! JK, but actually, I'm going to try to make it the next 8 months without hearing anything about the plot. No trailers. I came close last time.

        If you dive deep into the Star Wars lore there's something called "gray jedi", there's never been a film about it but there's been books and video games. They are by far the most nuanced and interesting characters in the Star Wars universe if you ask me. Maybe that's where this is headed? Fans have been speculating that perhaps Rey will become a "gray jedi". Google it if you want to learn more.
