Gave myself a custom title for fun.
You deserve a better custom title: "allergic to shit-posts." Just a suggestion.
@ButtUglyJeff But I like my title! I came up with it while I was taking a shit on a toilet that kept flushing itself any time I did so much as breathe.
@Hands that's a great story, something I'd expect from someone who is "the epitome of mental stability and maturity"...
IKEA has good taste in colors :)
GMK Nautilus yeah. I skipped it when it dropped on Massdrop few months ago.
Plussound BT cable + UERM a bust: loose connectors, whine and spotty pairing.
I'd like to know if you find a good pairing with them. My UERM needs a second life.
friend's new vinyl start up manufactured their first album: https://www.rudreshm.com/products/agrima-vinyl
I wish them luck.
who is going to CES this year?
Buy Christian a glass of Scotch for me.
Arrow is giving away a bunch of Arduinos
@Vansen I will buy Christian some soda water with lime in it so he looks like he’s drinking but stays on top of his work game.
It took all my willpower to only buy two of these: https://buy.jellykey.com/products/the-immense-ocean-series-world-of-coral-artisan-keycaps
I guess the Nautilus Keycaps are of great quality if they cost so much!
Are they the Massdrop ones, as I can't seem to find them online, nor on amazon; link pls?
I remember those nautilus keycaps. They are freaking beautiful and I would have jumped on it if I didn't already drop money on audio gear.
@A1Gear They were on MD a while back. I got the base set + novelty keys + spacebars.
@Cspirou I agree. One of my first literary loves was 20,000 leagues under the sea so I couldn't resist. the Coral artisan keys just fit so perfectly with the theme, too.
So here’s day 7 of Apple support having no idea why FaceTime and iMessage both fail to activate on my appleID account.
Apple seems to be having lots of issues lately. I'm hesitant to update my iOS. The last one is causing problems I've never had on my iPad. Piss....it just had one. Keyboard just vanished. Pissing me off.
which audiophile gods am I angering if I use a GSX1000 > ZDTj > HD800 for gaming?
Watching metalwork and machine videos, listening on HD800s. The crazy thing, though, is how they make me sit up and listen whenever there's music. Yes: even music via youtube. HD600s are damned nice, but they don't do that.
@bengo I remember something about it. It was about the time parents were voicing concerns about violence. What I do remember playing was the first DOS version of Wolfenstein. Took me an entire weekend to install and get it working. It got flack too.
Apart from the ZDT you're doing what a whole bunch of well-heeled gamers do with the HD800.
Btw, I'm told the Win10 "Windows Sonic for Headphones" software surroundofier thing is often competitive with solutions like the hardware codec the GSX has. Try it out maybe?
No, @Luckbad, the mods and admins will not delete your post so you can fix your trace and repost the sale. That’s even shittier.
Might be scarce for the next couple of months. It will probably improve this place 15% to have me offline.
Sort of need an ornery admin though ><.
Bullshit if it will. 15%, but not improvement. Take care of yourself. Too much stress isn’t a good thing bro.
@ButtUglyJeff, penis links... is that some body-piercing thing?
@zerodeefex, hope business goes well, and you get back here soon!
SI 18s are out of production so I picked up 4 of the budget JBL 12s from BB. Anyone in Boulder area want to paint sub boxes for $?
Time for the biweekly mshenay AE ban. @LostInSpacePineApple and @PurpleCabbage this time.
Does AE meant Alternate E-peen?
You ought to let one of his accounts go on for a while and see what he does.
isolate mshenay to a single forum thread where only he can post and stroke his own echo chamber.
I bought a table saw just for speaker building.
In my experience, power tools make tasks quicker, but not necessarily easier, and often actually require learning new skills.
But if you have the skill to be building speaker cabinets in the first place, you are half-way there. My speaker cabinets would look horrible, whatever tools I used.
And... When are getting the power planer?
@Cspirou Bunks with tweeters on top and sub underneath?
If I ever irritate you, I beg you to please give me a chance to apologize...lol
I think he means if you're a dick you get dicks...
DickButtUglyJeff has a certain ring to it.
Oh yeah dicks met only with dicks n-fold
Traveling and rocking only the WF-1000X. Surprisingly versatile. Didn’t have time to get a lightning compatible DAC before the trip.
Any connectivity impressions? people @HF have been complaining that these earphones has lousy bluetooth connections, e.g left side sudden drops
you don't have a GO2Pro to use with a USB-Lightning adapter?
I have a bigger stack (lightning USB C cable > revive > gov2+ SE) but that's stupid.
No dropouts even in SFO. I know the headphones were delayed in the US for a revision.
Ravi, since you're the Top Dog when it comes to all-things Smartphones. May I ask you for some advice on the overall best / TOTL ones to get? Thanks!
PS: I held off on Pixel2 XL - cause of: durability & screen issues & expandability concerns (I got no Data Plan, only Wi-Fi); as well as on Note 8 - cause I want the (finally matured-enough) Android 8.0 Oreo, but Sammy is notoriously slow to update their TouchWiz UI. :\
@zerodeefex I'll be looking forward to that. Thanks!
I'm currently leaning towards a Note 8. Cause of DEX Dock w/ M+KB for easy multimedia & desktop-like use w/ HDTV, good (IP68) water resistance, Wide+Regular cameras for when stuff don't fit in the shot/frame (OIS is a nice plus too), SD Card is very important to me, HP jack is neat to still have, Wireless charging is a must have (in-car/home) & S-Pen is useful too.
But that redundant & shoved-in TouchWiz UI/skin (though it seems to have already incorporated some needed Oreo firmware fixes and/or additions into Nougat) and therefore the usual long ass delay for Samsung to finally update to Android 8, seems like not worth to bother with...
...Let alone the gradual Software chugs & slow-downs overtime. I also did read about iPhones having much truer color-spectrum and no uniformity issues, unlike the previous Galaxy Note/S phones, even the Note 8 still suffers from that.
I might just hold off long enough to actually see what CES 2018 brings. Guh, it never ends. :\
Time change + small children = 5 am toddler alarm on a Sunday.
DST sucks, new theories point to 2 U.S. time zones as optimum, uh wait why am I up? enjoy the family time :)
Anyone ever discovers a safe, effective snooze button for toddlers or dogs, please let me know.
I saw a very tired looking dad walking his very energetic looking toddler this morning. I’m guessing there was a Mom at home finally getting some shuteye.
What Tekton’s have you heard and what did you not like?
Also we get it, you love your tektons and want to defend the brand vehemently on the internet. Tekton's WALLOFSOUND can be appealing but after moving toward more resolving speakers I can't recommend them. @JK47's fostex sigma + super tweeter setup at the LA meet was revelatory and I've found designs with fewer higher quality drivers and way less complicated crossovers to just be better.
Wow. All I did was ask what Tekton speakers you had heard and what you didn’t like about them. There was nothing in my question that came close to being defensive. I have only heard my Tektons so I have no basis to compare them to other versions. I wanted to get actual answers to my questions.
After I get my Don Sach’s preamp broken in it might be interesting to bring it, my M-22, and Double Impact speakers to an LA meet. It would illuminating to hear the DI’s compared to other speakers and to get other SBAF’ers opinions and feedback.
What's the hotness in lightning compatible dongles? If I have to use iOS I want good sound. Anyone used the ALO lightning litz cable?
Let's ask @KenBall to ship us an ALO Lightning cable to colorado, then we send it on SBAF tour. if it's good-enough, i'll buy one for my commute.
If it’s good, try and convience him to make it a dongle. That way you don’t have to change cable to use it.
one of you guys can try the cable. I'm more interesting in a dongle that's good for the noble X or MD Plus since I don't use the Andromeda out of anything less than the ZX2 these days.
@Mshenay is now permabanned. @Vansen told him he's banned from the loaner program yet he is still trying to get people to mail him gear.
It seemed like a matter of time. (I got the impression that he could not help himself.)
@zerodeefex Thank You
@Dino, that's the key to it...
