        FUCK YEAAAAHHHH! Oh yeah, if you weren't aware, the original ten novels are available in English from Viz. I'm glad we have the whole original novel series (which covers all 120 episodes of OVA) in English.

        I'm pretty sure Dolby atmos? I mean tickets were like 24 dollars each, though I don't know if that's just standard now. The only thing that has be coming back is watching Blade Runner 2049 in Dolby Atmos and that was just.....ridiculous....haven't experienced anything as good since.

        One things that really affects the soundqaulity in theaters are where you sit. You sit in the first 3rd it will be pretty bright. Dolby Atmos really worked well inside the cars. Image on other hand seems subpar. Looked like SS instead of HDR. Highlight blown out, contrast off...might just been the theatre I visited.

        I'll have to give that one another listen. Three of his solo Beethoven recordings are particularly worth-hearing. His very imaginative, but also coherent, Op. 27/1. His tightly structured but still quite virtuosic 32 Variations in C minor. And his bold, albeit ultimately uncompelling, attempt to play Op. 27/2 according to the tempo markings.

        They may adopt certain features later, but generally they turn out in the whole to be much more refined as a package compared to their targeted competition (with very decent supported lifetimes), which tons of people worldwide look forward to getting their hands on. But yes, the Keynotes are somewhat silly at this point, exercises in over-production to keep the masses excited over what's already expected.

        Yeah that's why I was asking. Was interested in getting them with cohesion being a factor that irked me slightly with the solaris and the mild raspiness from the scooped mids...then I'm like...should I just get the 8XX and screw iems altogether?

        If as of late you use mostly headphones, get 8XX. If not, think about it. I enjoy my Ara even if it is BA ville, but the 2k-8k can get on my nerves on some recordings.

      All in the grinder my dude. A mazzer mini is the best investment I have ever made in an appliance. 4 - 6 double shots a day for me and the wife for 10 years now, and going strong with almost no maintenance. My shots went from inconsistent and frustrating to beautiful, reliable and topped with crema.

        I just have a modern cello, but decent cello strings from larsen or spirocore cost a lot. almost 400 for a set, and strings usually are supposed to be changed every 120hrs....4 hrs of playing that's every month, but we don't abide by those rules strictly ><.
