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. Dec 6, 2017 at 6:15 PM

        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.

      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. :\

        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.

        Not had problems but I'm in Boulder, not the bay area anymore. Some reviews are claiming the delay in the US was for them to fix the issue. There is also a "prioritize connection" mode that backs off from AAC to SBC.

        @imackler Ak Jr and ZX2 both bad pairings. Surprisingly the Noble lightning cable is better than either if you have an iPhone. If you need something more universal and are willing to spend, the GO2A is a nice step up. That being said, the plus with the $80 lightning cable is a great little portable setup for iPhone users.

        Thank you for taking the time to test, @zerodeefex. The impressions are valuable to me. Sounds like i've got a decision between keeping the AK JR or getting the Plus. (I've got a Pixel XL; I can't imagine the high OI will do the Plus any favors.)

        @imackler. It's almost tuneable. Do you want bigger bass? Go up in OI. Do you want it more neutral and tighter down low? Keep it lower OI. FWIW, @CEE TEE tuned with the ak240 which is about 3 ohm OI measured. That's similar to the AK Jr.
