Might move back to the Yggdrasil now that I have a better speaker setup. Gumby in black might go up for sale with gen 5. Oct 19, 2017 at 6:19 PM

        Been out of the loop for a bit.
        Ravi, may I ask, which Speakers/Amp setup, have you upgraded to, now?
        (I think you had those beautiful Moth AE Cicadas w/ a Crown or Vidar Amp, or something, right?)

      When you attend a show and a manufacturer shares something with you in person because you're a part of SBAF, don't share with randos on HF.

        @DigMe, enough with the ageism!

        Dotards have feelings too. At least, maybe we vaguely remember having had some once.

      Stole @CEE TEE's plus. Good deal at $299. Damn good IEM.

        @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.

      The Crown X1000 sounds much better with my Overnight Sensations than the JLH69. Thx for the recco.

        I still love my original pixel camera and the 2 looks better. I haven't used any of them but the things that stood out for me: the real time translation in buds, the home mini for my daughter's room + the intercom like features, the clips (@CEE TEE liked that too) and of course the cameras on the new phones.

        For HT? The El cheapo SI driver. $320 for 2 new 18s that perform good enough for HT. They're going to wait on me finishing dipole subs to match the moths, though.

        I always thought that Meridian was just a niche British hifi company. It is much more. Surprised they never made a profit out of the much-more!

        BS. Certainly the right initials (and I don't mean bookshelf). Wouldn't buy a second-hand car off him. Cheap.

      I probably shouldn't bother Ornery Admin, but I noticed your new title and am wondering if you ended your relationship with LHLabs? None of my business really, just curious.

        I'm still friends with Larry and I am still on the board (I've never taken a salary for my involvement). Since the primary focus is on the current portfolio and delivering existing products, I'm not engaging as much as previously. Larry has the engineers he needs and the supply chain talent (especially in China). Now the team is executing.

        I went back and looked at their Eiter thread. It was 2 posts a couple of days ago. Up to 4 pages now. Doesn't seem to be much interest nor understanding. A member has had this post up over 2 days. "Spent some time over on Super Best Audio Friends. There's a pretty lengthy Eitr thread there." Maybe they are working on the site for a change.

        That was great. I read the WSJ article, and was very stoked about Welch/Rawlings (finally!) producing vinyl, instead of cassettes, which I assume was a joke. I hope your friend's optimism meets reality.

        A well-written article that explains exactly why, after enough bad experiences with new vinyl, I mainly buy used, old titles. I occ buy new when there is an artist I really want to support.
