      just tried Meze RAI. Its a smoother, easier to listen Solaris (was also there). More "natural" too imo, Solaris over exaggerates quite often

        If you have to ask "is it safe", then it's not safe. (imo)

        @Elnrik good rule of thumb. I never heard about it before that's why though. Could do some Googling but I'd rather get some "customer reviews" here first

        Wells Fargo this year alone paid a 1.0B fine in April, 4 million in June a 2.09B fine in August and yesterday agreed to another 575 million. Where is the prison time? They just buy their way out of trouble.

      Apple ID has been hacked. Changed my password and check all the important details which are still unchanged, what else should I do?

        As others have said, change all your relevant passwords. Create unique 12+ character passwords that have random letters, numbers, and special characters and use a password manager to retrieve them when needed

        TURN ON 2 FACTOR AUTHENTICATION for your Apple ID and anything else that supports it

        Yes, turn on 2FA. I use Macs, but Androids. Use separate email addresses/account names for different accounts.

        Most importantly: use a password manager! Distinct passwords for every site.

        Without 2FA, the only protection you have is password length. 20+ characters if the site'll let you. If they don't, be wary because they're likely not properly storing your password.

      $800 for RE2000 or just find an used Andro? I once had an Andro then sold it because it was too finnicky & the sound was too aggressive.

        I actually prefer the RE2000 to the Atlas, if I had to choose between the two. The RE2000 is surprisingly good, I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it really is. Build quality isn't great, but it sounds awesome, IMO. Definitely worth a shot at the sale price.

        Vanatoo are warmer and don't have as much DSP trickery bass extension. Go with iloud as cheaper. Both are boxy small speakers going too low so spend less $$$

        Ahh, yeah, that's one thing I'll miss. I rarely listen on the go nowadays so gave up on chasing phones with 3.5mm outs, though I maintain phones are better with em.

        IME OnePlus make hella great phones, don't think you can go wrong with a 6 at all!

        The problem is that it has nothing to do with “knowing better” and everything to do with which set of compromises you want to make. Geeks that think they know better by being apple haters lack empathy for the differing values of others

        Apple was miles ahead with its lighter OS and certain implementations to streamline processes. Microsoft only caught up with W8 but then failed so hard at marketing that they lost the initiative again. The old MacBook Pros from about 5 years ago were some of the best laptops around. A light OS is such a delight.

        Bad idea, good taste in watches though.If you're just going by scarcity it should be a no-brainer. The Metro is sexy as hell though— which one were you eyeing?

        I agreed that it is very likely a bad idea too, yet still tempting (that's how my brains typically work). Looking at Tetra, Club and Tangent atm.
        Or maybe, just play it safe: sell the AD2000 and get a Max Bill instead :)

        Ah you have to go for the Tangent then! Beautiful piece, will likely remain in style for a long time to come.

        Still not worth losing the headphones though :P

        Ha I definitely won't. Ideally I wouldn't buy any but I might have to pick at least one or two. But lucky for me the loaner program has been on fire lately so I will get to try most of them before pulling the trigger.

        I once sold a panerai watch to someone from watchuseek. The tracking stopped updating and he claimed he didn't receive it. PayPal refunded him the money but I had already moved it to an alternate account, which I do with all my sales. So I had a -6000 balance. The kicker is that I found the guys facebook and he was wearing the watch on his profile picture.

        After 2 years I felt guilty and called PayPal to settle up. They said it wasn't possible for some reason. Now I pay shipping insurance on anything over $1000 especially when using USPS.
