Maybe Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Jay Z & others should fund a competitor to Ticketmaster. I hear a few programmers may be avail. Nov 18, 2022

        Seriously. My wife was a "Verified Fan" and after using the link, waiting in a waiting room and then a queue, it wouldn't accept the code TM texted us. We tried for 5.5 hours, and then it finally worked and we got TSwift tix in a corner behind the stage... I hate Ticketmaster.

      Will twitter make it to the new year? I'm inclined to say nope.

        If all the reports from recently laid off/fired/resigned employees are true, there will be no way for Twitter to maintain operations in the short term. Roughly 88% of the workforce has left, far beyond any amount of trimming the fat to be more efficient. The remaining workers have been left confused and asked to do tasks they've never handled before.

        Some employees who resigned are reporting that it took them days to actually resign because their supervisor had already been laid off or quit, and they couldn't figure out who to resign to!

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

      Has anyone ever offered a recording of a bad cd rip vs a good cd rip? Let's leave out obvious physical drops.

        CD ripping software has had error correction for some time. I have compared VBR MP3 rips to FLAC. I can discern the difference.

        Let's hope we audiofools can hear the difference between mp3 and lossless. Just thinking about those who use panic mode or some other on rips. I have not heard a bad rip only incomplete due to physical damage to disk. I do recall in the olden days iTunes did not have any error checking and interpolated data if it ran into issues.

        Depends on the IEMs & amp. The Timeless like a bit of power. I can't speak to the zen dac but many dongles or portable amps with low output do better from the bal. jack. Good enough bal. cables can be cheap.

        It’s only necessary if the source/amp sounds significantly better from the balanced out.

        We try to be as transparent as we can. We used to offer free shipping on all orders but rates have risen and items under $100 were break even or even a loss especially factoring in other costs. Over $100 we start with our free shipping.

      Connect by T-Mobile cheap pre-paid plans, any drawback? Same Cust service?

        Normally worse customer service. I had T-Mobile Pre-Paid and while it was good...it was way overpriced for my needs. I'm on Mint Mobile that uses T-Mobile towers. Don't expect the fastest speeds but it really gets the job done for me.

        Ah y'know what, looking through the manual I think the cleanbox actually only does the conversions but doesn't do dual output. The DTI will output both though since it's all tapped off the same transformer. It would be better to do that than use a y splitter because the splitter will ground the negative legs of XLR which you usually don't want to do.

        I read that you can take a balanced hot, float the negative, and use the shield for ground on an unbalanced wiring to avoid using the negative of the balanced signal. Need to check the Rane guide for wiring.

        it's *probably* fine, but there's a chance that having the uneven loading on the pos/neg legs may cause bad mojo which is why using a DI box is the safer route
