        Forgot the fridge again. Don't tell Mrsdegraded, I'll get yelled at.

      A, B, & a bit of X with Mrsdegraded and CDP vs CDT->Modi Multibit; nailed it. My digi-nervosa makes me scared to try her on CDT vs RPi/Digi+ now...

      If buying a portable headphone amp, the spec I'd really want to know is the output impedance.

        Well duh, there'd be no room for frequency response on the spec sheet if they included that! :P

        Having said that, this piques my interest.

      Note to self: on completion of measurements, remember to turn fridge back on.

        Luckily remembered before everything turned to custard; hopefully lesson learned.

        Back in 1972 or something, a friend's dad ran a recording studio in his home. Anyone who touched any switch when he was working did not survive long enough to say sorry.

      Heard HD600 for the first time today! In SBAF terms, have I lost my virginity or just reached first base?

        In audio, as in love, one's goals can vary depending on age and physical abilities.

        Damn you made me reach for my olde Yorkshire dictionary. As far as I'm concerned people's love life is totally uninteresting. That said, cuddling isn't exactly what I'd call endgame, and something tells me you wouldn't either, thad

        Thing was... the party tape, the compilation for your girl-/boy-friend... very social things, cassettes!

        And then the early days of really portable audio.

        They definitely have a place in history.

        The ease of copying is what I remember most. The tangled rats nest ranks a close 2nd.

        I used to do the same - taping LPs for the car and for portability, and compilations. Yes, they have a place in history - where they should stay. Having said that, I'm going to play an old compilation now...

      The Blitzwolf IEM case is big enough to also hold a DragonFly and an Android OTG cable. Convenient!

        Anything that stops me losing my shit (in all senses) on aeroplanes is a worthwhile innovation.

      New bearing/sub-platter unit made the Rega more speed-stable; trouble is, it also made it (even) faster >:-(
