    Only a bit over a month since getting back into regularly working out. Satisfying to feel the results in everyday tasks; no longer as tired

    Big changes to my chain upstream from cans/headphone cables. Finally got Allo Digione running as my source into mScaler/TT2.
    1. lcmusiclover
      Really changed opinion of Utopia from mTT2. New source & silver balanced cable out of back XLRs. Stayed smooth, but energy & dynamics are back. London Grammar 'Truth is a Beautiful Thing' is awesome -- whole album.

    New challenge ... AC died. Right at the beginning of a hot period. Can't use equipment or wear headphones. Sweating profusely. FWP.

      The old Ice Cooler/fan can provide some temporary relief, but it's effects are limited at best...hope your AC is back online soon....

      Simple but brilliant!

      There are also "Desert Cooler" machines that cool by blowing air through wet mats: evaporation causes cooling. But they are good for deserts, not for places where the heat is very humid. Here, drying the air is as important to comfort as cooling it. I've heard the same said of Florida: probably other parts of USA have humidity blues too

      Went to a hole in the wall little mattress store by the local airport and got a great full size mattress for $325 delivered. Same mattress in a "normal" store was ~$900.

      I have to be on time. Make your deals too late and the moment the economy recovers all the prices jump up. A few steps remain and I can focus on the long-term again...

      Oh man, do I understand lol. Yeah... I think no matter what the exact circumstances are, moving is always gonna be among the most stressful affairs in life. There is always something. It's that mix of crunch and uncertainty.

      HAH! Never heard of a "negative test track" before but that unfortunately seems to describe a fair portion of what I often listen to :P

      @Lyander Yes, a track used with a known flaw. In the case of Dear John, it is compressed and brick wall filtered really badly.

      Listening with my Gen G and while there are a few moments where I know my Mjolnir would be more refined, I’m not tempted to switch away from the Vali at all.

      2 Loki? Are they both in the signal path?

      One is before my 789 and the other is before my IEMagni loaner. So I can compare them with the same EQ. :)

    Is $550 a good deal for a Stax SR Lambda Pro?
    1. penguins
      Seems like the going price on ebay, but in my own limited experience with them - the bigger question is do you like electrostatic? Wouldn't be worth it to me as the "good" energizer is supposedly $7k from the guy in Iceland. The current production Stax energizers don't cut it - again, limited experience though.

    @shredical how are the Penrose working out for you? I think I have to go that route since the PS5 controller audio is shit.

      Thank you! Is it the ps5 compatible version? If it's the best ps5 headset, I might as well just buy one :)

      Penrose X is also PS5 compatible if you switch the stick to PC mode instead of Xbox mode.

    I am the next person to receive the Soekris after you. I would like to ask (depending on when you get it) for you to not ship it to me until the 8th or 9th of July. I will not have any time the previous week and want to really spend some time with it. I hope this works for you.
    thank you

    If you can buy a house and own the ground, it beats renting. The housing market is a minefield...

      If you pay taxes on the land does that mean you really own the house, though? But yeah it seems acquisition is hellish in some places right now; quite the contrary in others.
