    A cold Fall is coming. Days tire me out faster. Just get things done whatever happens. Also drink less coffee, aya...

    Sorry to say it, fellas, but it looks like we’re officially in a recession. My go-to Coke machine went from 50 cents to 60 cents today.

      Butler has gone up in wages. I do not like that. Already stocking up on Tesla Optimus.

      A close friend told me that he very distressed as a child when a slice of pizza went from 90¢ to a dollar. In 1986, 10¢ was not an utterly trifling sum to a youngster.

    Anyone here on Starlink? What's your experience, particularly around latency (bandwidth is supposedly good)?

    So, are the various SPL Phonitor amps all the same? Phonitor 2 = X = XE = E = SE? Just with different features and inputs/outputs?

      Good to know! I'll be especially curious what you think about the Andromeda via the X and if there's any hiss.

    JBL 305P mkii cutting off randomly, sometimes repower fixes it for a few minutes and then it cuts off again. Low vol, any ideas?

      Oops, it may be the clip strip plugged into an outlet where my foot can cause a loose connection. More to come.

      What's the forcast for you - what is peak windage supposed to be and is it higher then your toilet velocity?

      I look at the centre of the screen. Seems to work for me for both reading and graphics photo work.

      I just wish there was a *half-a-page down* key. (I use Pale Moon, a fork of an earlier Firefox before it became ugly, in case anyone has suggestions)

      I do not have a monitor in the toilet.

      Monitor height is not the main issue for me as I can always add more books. Rather the keyboard on the desk is too high and it’s causing some carpal tunnel type issues. From what I read ideally your arms should be floating with wrists off the surface. Sort of like playing piano

      I half expect it to be a 4th wall gag, like a 5 second cameo in a dream sequence where he gets killed right away. Or he'll be an actor portraying Wolverine in a movie within the movie.

      I had a similar home-coming a couple weeks ago. I sent my MIL in for a self inflicted RMA. When I got it back it really struck me how good it is.

    Can you voluntarily rumble your ears by flexing your tensor tympani? Supposedly this is rare, but then again audiophiles are an odd sort...

      Now I need to know: can you voluntarily pop your ears "in either direction"? What I mean is: can you pop your ears so that everything gets louder and also pop your ears so that everything gets quieter?

      I always thought everyone can do this, too. I theoretically can do it for as long as I want, though just now was the first time I did it for about 30s. It actually becomes exhausting after a while. :)

    Has anybody heard the Ayre P-5XE phono stage? I’m really curious about this one. I might have a lead on a good deal.
    1. wbass
      Haven't heard but was curious myself a couple years ago. Those balanced inputs/outputs especially appealing. In a big compare of phono stages, I found the big difference, unsurprisingly, to be between tube and solid-state.
