Tidal kills their top priced tier tomorrow, so "hi-res" for all. What good above redbook albums should I listen to? Apr 9, 2024 at 9:02 PM

      Distortion Check-Is there some distortion on the vocal chorus starting at about the 7:57 to 8:50. Let me know what you hear .

        I should say nice DR to mix balance - for the level of detail they’re capturing nice job not squashing or clipping. Ref Tool’s last album for the opposite.

      An IEM on tour in India was torn apart by the HF reviewer before reassembling and sending off to the next member. WTF

      Cali Crew, weather nerds predicting the worse, anyone worried about hurricane dumping tons o rain on socal?

        See my status below yours.

        Have been through a few hurricanes in my youth elsewhere and they weren't bad by themselves, but this is also in proper buildings with infrastructure designed to handle it.

        Somewhat worried because buildings and infrastructure here are not designed for massive rain and 60+ mph winds. Repair times are also not that great - even in good weather.

        On the flip side, it does look like it is supposed to pass relatively quickly.

        Also, not worried per se, but wondering how society here will fare as well. i.e. will people mostly stay inside due to floods or are we going to see mass looting and chaos in LA + San Diego?

        I can't remember, did you ever try 7Hz Timeless? More relaxed from the upper mids up than the S12, but bass can be a bit loose depending on source/tips/ears. Fit is the main issue.

      I think cables for iems = tires for cars. Tuning potential for desired sound but will not change the character of the car/iem

        I'd do it by genre in batches of 5 or 6. I've *never* bought a larger batch, because anything larger always includes several discs I'm not interested in. And it's not as if people can't buy more than one batch, as long as you allow that. Are you parting with any classical CDs (or pre-war jazz)?

        And @Lyander you are absolutely correct. The cage actually makes it less versitile to me beause you can't get it close enough and the bass chamber is too much. I wonder if their new SEv7 is a PG58 diaphragm. Certainly cheaper build. I just can't get past their grainy sound and the low-mids is just too much, at least for my voice.

        @Azimuth might be missing something but the V7 isn't a Shure mic so I doubt it has a PG58 assembly; it's just a relatively new mic that I brought up as a way to illustrate how there seem to be lots of viable alternatives to the classic SM57/58 nowadays.

        Could have gotten confused with the Shure MV7, which is like a more "content creator"-oriented SM7B?

        What made me switch back to Firefox long ago already (although FF didn’t have a fast JS engine yet back then) was when Google removed vertical tabs (on top of each other to the left, which makes it possible to read tab titles even with several hundred tabs open). FF has the (even better) Tree Style Tabs extension for that.
        Never looked back.
