      So now 7Hz Timeless has a competitor...the LETSHUOER S12. Looks very interesting.

        14.2mm driver in Timeless. 14.8mm driver in the S12, with more traditional IEM fit. Two prong plug though. Only two reviews on YT so far just posted in the last week.

        @Soups "I prefer to know less and less about musicians' real™ lives."

        Always have felt the same. Only recently looked into the history of some of my favourite music. One can wish one hadn't. Case: CSN. Sang some of my favourite songs. Better not to find out what they ended up thinking of each other.

      The Vali 2+ is more than an amp that it needs to be. I was not expecting this much upgrade from Vali 2. This could be Vali 3.

        @yotacowboy Vali is thicker, exhibits more tube warmth, less slam but better bass texture, less overall clarity than SW.

        @yotacowboy SW51 is still cleaner, wider, and digs deeper in the details. I was just took by surprise how updated the Vali 2+ and the immediacy you get. The reduced noise floor is amazing.

        I had read somewhere that it's tuned as a bloated bass "V" signature so I lost interest. I wonder if the driver is any good for modding purposes though (even though I don't mod)

        I am quite familiar with Phil's work on 70's era Genesis (I am a big fan of that era, not so much after Peter left). I just have a soft spot for Stewart's work in the Police. I used to be obsessed with them!

    "Subjective impressions are great, really. Without them, what's the point..." This only means I try not to listen to the gear rather listen to the music.

    An audio enthusiast with a recording degree. I became an audiophile in college in studying recording to become a mastering engineer. Although I was an intern for Glenn Meadows and also was acquaintances with Ray Kennedy, the stars never quite aligned for me. However I never left pursuing high-end audio.

    I grew up in a radio station as my dad was in radio. My first job was a board op at the talk station where I had to use analog reel to reels, carts, cassettes, and DAT's.

    And yes, I like to tinker with gear. I am an audiophile on a budget. Working IT Instructional Designer only gets you so much income with two kids around. Have you seen how much day care costs these days? Anyways, there are I guess some gains to some gear that can be tweaked to improve the performance. This is no different than car types changing differentials or beefing up the suspension or engine. Some of us can't afford a BMW, but rather have to take a Civic and beef it up with aftermarket parts.

    Tinkering also helps with repairing gear. I have restored some KEF C75 speakers, an Elac Miracord 50H. I have also fixed, soldered, suped up, many other things from crossovers, to cap replacement, to op-amp replacement, etc. I most recently fixed and rebuilt a non-working Dynalo. I took electronics and studio maintenance in college, but I am still learning.

    I have also built: guitar tube amps, guitars, and drums. I love DIY.
