        Bixby, I’m also a tea fan and agree with the above. I buy my tea from Mandala Tea or Camellia Sinensis online. the latter offers quality bagged tea.

      Knowing you have an aversion to 3.7khz peaks or 3.7 khz rich music has profound effects on how you listen to and perceive equipment.

        Yes, it happens when you analyze to death a 1 meter nearfield setup, cuz it and your main setup set you off when it comes to whacked sax, cymbals, voices, etc. And you find the culprit frequency that is making lots of marginal recordings sound even crappier.

      I've been against adapters (given a choice), but "fixing" a problem of low level noise caused by 1/4 to RCA adapters is pretty amazing.

        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.

        I've read good things about the TPA325x chips as a good step up from the 3116. There are a billion clones but apparently 3eaudio on ebay and aliexpress are a cut above.

        maybe you got grandfathered? I see $72 a yr as the cheapest option. Unless I am missing something. https://feedly.com/i/pro/welcome.
        Wait, is the "Get started for Free" button the "unlisted free version"?

        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.

        I haven't read a lot, but most of what I've read about the free ones is that they aren't really free in that they use/sell your info and they're best to avoid. YMMV of course.

        Baffles my mind with variants becoming much more predominant and the main trait is they are up to 10X more contagious. If there was a time frame when masks are most important, it is now. Just plain stupid.

        "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.
