Ready for the next level of DIY. Anyone have a bare GPU PCB?
LTA V3's are such a (very) crazy set of great quality HP's. These will become my daily drivers. How can a single dude have made these...
has he started shipping units?
yea buddy, I got a v1 and v3 coming in 2 weeks
up next: RD modded HE560 and Fostex
Had to immortalize an adorable moment with a new avatar. Thank you Bandit for modeling my cans better than I ever could.
Found my UERM customs today and it was a blast from the past. So much has changed on my end but how's everyone? :)
Oh gosh, didn't those use to be my old UERMs? Yeah, some part of me wishes I still had them. Welcome back. How was your journey away?
I think one of the drivers have died or my hearing is not as good as it has been in the past. My trip was great! I remember meeting with Lieven from Headfonia for the first time and we met again the year after when I went back.
Love seeing this forum still being active as ever Marv, I don't wanna go back to audio just yet but I'd love to dive into speakers when I decide to. Hope things are well on your end!
Does anyone have an external CD drive you really like? I bought one off of Amazon for $30 but it's been horrible... Going to rip cds.
Have a look at this: https://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showthread.php?43786-CD-Drive-Accuracy-2019&s=de49d473732eeadb7030577a6fa7e2fc
I'd recommend looking into the Asus BW-16D1X-U. From what I can tell, it's the external version of the Asus BW-16D1HT, which is the AccurateRip accuracy leader from the last DBpoweramp results I could find: https://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showthread.php?43786-CD-Drive-Accuracy-2019.
Looked into this recently as I build an SFF PC and am not sure I'll be able to fit an internal drive into whatever case I end up with.
I dont know if they sell them outside of Japan but the Pioneer one I have has been quite good. It is a little loud at times but it works really well and has never failed to read any CDs that were possible to read. Quite expensive though, think mine was about 90 dollars when I bought it a few years ago.
FCKKKK Windows Updates. Every damn time it screws up something. Now the sound is crackling.
if using check that your asio latency settings did not get borked if you use a non default.
Haven't read the book (my bad) but the new Dune series looks really good...
Looking forward to it! Still mad about Game of Thrones, he really needs to finish those damn books.
You still into VNs?
No, not much any more. I'm mostly just waiting for Kara no Shoujo 3 to be translated and for the rest of the Fault series. I'll probably try to finish the Grisaia series some day as well.
Hate to say this, but I'm immensely enjoying the AirPods Max in general.
I also like mine and agree with all your thoughts. Will be comparing them to an Audeze Penrose loaner sometime next week. I had comfort issues, Dekoni nuts, I mean nuggets, fixed it.
Might have to compare against the Audeze Penrose aswell. The rtings measurements look similar enough that I'm sure I'd love the tonality on that thing, too.
PM-3 with HA-2 is another interesting comparison. From what I've heard so far, kinda on even footing.
I’m sure they sound good but the price tag kills it for me. I use my AirPods Pro all the time, so convenient and useful.
Just got offered a new job at my company that is much more ME and comes with a nice pay raise...um...yeah!
Give me a pay raise I need some.
That’s great news. Congrats
The worst part about doing things on-line is the fact that you need accounts for even tiny things. You will fill a book with accounts...
@Ksaurav402 But that locks you further into google / facebook I know people who wanted to quit Facebook, and ended up being locked out of unrelated websites.
@JustAnotherRando Lastpass family has been a great investment. Without much effort, we end up with form auto-filling of name+address+etc, secure logins for every site, two factor authentication with physical keys, password sharing in family and only one password to remember per person.
Another vote for password managers. 1Password saves my life every day.
Kanye releasing new album tomorrow/ live event tonight.
Oooooh, Kanye, be still my ❤.
Rolling Stones "No Filter" tour for 2021 announced. Did they just jump the "coming out of COVID lockdown" shark? Pent up demand for wheelchairs-and-walkers-rock?
@yotacowboy yes - because Elton John is also all over Europe & N America 2021 & 2022. "Farewell Yellow Brick Road."
NBA Finals. Wut? When did that happen?
Been a super busy sports time
Dragonforce's Killer Elite GH album is a great remaster/remix of their stuff. Space between instruments now, not an all out wall of sound <3
RIP Jerry Granelli, a brilliant jazz drummer (and artist) who played on one of my favourite albums, A Charlie Brown Christmas.
Just found out that those audio guides in museums often have 3.5mm inputs. When visiting museums be sure you pack some IEMs with you!
Don't you mean /outputs/ ?
@Thad E Ginathom - Yeaaah. I was thinking about plugging it in
I figured. An input is where one inputs the plug :)
What is that horn speaker in the image! https://www.nytimes.com/2021/07/20/style/virgil-abloh-lvmh-off-white.html
something custom. onken bass cabinet with JBL2241. midhorn is a tractrix but can't see more
I found it! I just remembered seeing these guys on my IG a few weeks ago. https://www.instagram.com/p/CRHJvsQMCXZ/
Wonder why they ended up at an off white fashion show
Is it possible to rip a Blu-spec cd? my dvd drive says no. In a conundrum acquiring these flac files
Turns out there is many sub genres of cd. It is a little bit of fun, just picked this one up to rip it and maybe hear a difference, music is great. Just wish I could unlock the digital files onto my storage
Huh, really? My understanding is it is like a regular CD in all ways except it was pressed using Blu-ray production equipment, ie more accurate lasers. If it can play in a regular player, don't know why it shouldn't rip. Try multiple drives and programs - dBPoweramp, EAC, Cueripper.
Thought so too, but it was unreadable on my dvd drive on my laptop. I might be able to try it on other devices, but it is unrecognizable on my laptop.
I considered a bluray slim drive, a few on ebay. I will update this with my progress and maybe make a thread into my cd format adventures
Israel, occupation, ice cream - not to make light of a complex situation, but had to laugh at reference to the "Mintifada"
Imagine the scandal if the mint was not fresh but frozen. People would have gone Gordon Ramsay over that...
