        I caught a fish once. It was this big:

        <--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->

        Literally!

        And I had to get a local fisherman to take it off the hook and throw it back in the harbour for me. Never fished again.

      Recs for Frequency Analyzer app for Android, free is best. I have used Audizer but it has a built in bump at 7khz.

        Audizr also smooths the low octaves too much. Tried Spectroid? Free, good variety of settings.

        Not recent but ordered 3 about 3 years ago without issue. Had no issues with returning the one I didn't want either. Which reminds me - it looks like they resell their returns for IIRC ~10% off.

        I've owned Indeed tda7498e w/30 v supply, not bad but thin. Looking at tpa 3251 or 3255 non BT. Using a Sonance 260 (class ab) that is a bit too fuzzy up top. Nad 316bee was crap and way over budget, Dayton ap150 sounds decent, but above budget. May be pulling trigger on Peter Daniels Lm3875 for main setup so maybe that could work if I up my budget. Keep the ideas coming.

        It is from a big provider outside DC, but perhaps one day it belonged to someone else. I have a suspicion someone put it on a blacklist and it never got updated. No ability to pick another since it is FREE.

        "they have the target market all figured out"

        It is a prime tenet of audiophoolery that playing music must be difficult. Such people believe that it takes a lot of computer power to do audio. Which is, of course, bollocks.

        Yes $ is the reason, use waste instead of a good oil, like 50+ years ago when they convinced Grandma to use Crisco in her baking. Cottonseed oil that has been hydrogenated. She should have kept using Lard, probably healthier.

        About the same time, they switched pig breeds so pork chops stopped being as tasty…but they could advertise it as "lean". That was during the fat-free craze of the mid-late 80s.

        So we dropped the fat and loaded everything up on sugar to make up for it. Now we know that sugar is a toxin and fat is crucial in brain development.

        Meanwhile corn subsidies have also contributed to the decline in Americans' health, IMO.

        The switch to lard to Crisco was because of the horrible health conditions at the meat packing plants in places like Chicago. Crisco was advertised as a clean and healthier alternative. If you want some tasty biscuits, cut them with lard, not vegetable shorting.

        For the record I revisited this with the HP-3 and the Liquid Carbon just now (was on Fulla 2>HD600 last time) and LOL yes the bass is all flub and crumple. Kinda surprising how I wasn't much bothered by it on the Senns.

        @Hands had a good idea, so I looked it up. Here is the answer, "No VST exists that's been compiled for ARM."

        Ah, I guess I didn't know VSTs had to be compiled for different OSes and architectures. I thought they were simpler.

        Nonetheless, I have to imagine there is some sort of solution that would give you the EQ you want.

        I still think the benefits of a Pi2AES or DigiOne Sig are a worthwhile pursuit. They provide specific improvements you can't get through other means.
