        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.

      LG phones on T-Mob are having a really bad day today "ims has stopped error" and no solution.

        Considering LG is officially out of the smartphone market...it is only a matter of time before upgrade time.

      Final E3000 users & @Brause -Do they break or fail like many a'zon 1 star reviews indicate? And is there really no warranty?

        I've had my Final E5000 (similar design) for two years with no problems. They are not my daily drivers though

        ZMF Atrium or Aeolus. The E5000 is my only wired IEM which I mainly use in bed or for travel.

      How to split dac pro level bal out to feed bal in on active mon & unbal input on active sub? Low cost and simple?

        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

        Seriously, I was baffled, but after gixxerwimp's post, I get the idea.

        Only cheap one, but mine has a drawer. Maybe most of toasters I have known did

        I am considering the Apple. Worried that it might not have enough power to drive my budget Sony MH755, the LG does when I trick it into high power mode. I'll check out the Helm as well.

        FWIW Apple dongle works well enough with headphones. Looked up measurements and the voicing of the Sony might not be flattering to the dongle though.

        Apparently the Apple for USB C is volume deficient, as are the Google and Samsung? Probably looking for 90 or so mW @32 ohm.

        Maybe they can come up with a new bad name every year, then abandon it 2 games into the season and go back to Football Team.

        I don't think they reveal the new name until early Feb... but I guess someone could have leaked it to see what the reaction is. Personally, I'd go with the current WFT, because I'm sure a lot of their fans go WTF WFT?!?! after their games.

        Ahh, the moronic extrapolation from sample of one self <bangs head on wall>

        Actually, covid has been no big deal for the vast majority of sufferers, who didn't even need to go to a hospital. And it's also killed a lot of people.

        But hey, y'all know all this: just venting at the anti-vaxer
