Can we prevent new members from starting threads until they hit a minimum post count or something? Oct 18, 2020 at 4:52 PM

        I mean, I'm not trying to be exclusive. I'm much, much more ignoramus than many long-time members, so I'm grateful for my spot on this forum. And I want newcomers to be able to fit in here.
        I'm just seeing a fair number of newbie posts that indicate people aren't reading any of the new member guides.

        ASCII mushroom cloud if they don’t introduce themselves, and auto delete of account... POOF!!! Maybe the next time they will get it.

      Zen Can without a DAC--would that be crazy? I remember Marv advising that at lower budgets, amps matter more than DACs.

        Thanks guys, audio nervosa is real and reassurances like yours help. I’m on a Sundara so Zen Can seems good enough, just wondering if there’s a better amp or AIO.

        Sorry, I misread your post. I thought you were talking about portable gear. I’d say pretty much the same thing except desktop DACs don’t always have HP outs. Taking into account the price of the Zen Can it may be worth considering a Magni or Liquid Spark for less, or you could almost fit something like a Modi DAC into your budget too.

        Definitely leaning towards Magni 3+. Just a pity shipping costs to me are high--ends up being 140 USD.

      K612 fits loose (sinks too low). Shame, the sound is good to me so far. Anyone know how fix the fit?

        Haha thanks guys, that co-pilot looks uber comfy, but I'm not sure this headphone is worth that kind of money. I'll see if I can fix it for cheap.

        That's why I said "or similar", cuz I do agree that while extremely luxe-looking the copilot isn't necessarily a cheap spend.

        There are loads of inexpensive ones I've lucked into on online markets like AliExpress, Lazada, and Shopee, but really you could get away with a lot using a new pair of socks (or several) you're not particularly attached to :P

        A sign of the times: when I saw letters and numbers and you talking about fit, I immediately thought you were talking about a type of face mask that I hadn't tried yet.

      In 3 years, Z623 never seemed sibilant until now. Did my speakers break or did my hearing suddenly improve?

      HD800 pads are flaking, like black pepper. Is this common?

        Yes. My pair is from 2008/2009 and I've replaced the pads due to this. My rough facial hair makes it happen in certain areas on the pads.

        In the end I went with a Logitech Z623 for $209--it's at that price throughout SLS.

        install the Ghostery extension in your web browser and protect yourself.
        IOS also has adware blockers for Safari too.

        I am keeping up with them, but they seem to be increasing quite a bit and more frequently. We need to institute a method that before you can post, you have to introduce yourself - put a restriction on New members who just signed up to only be able to post in the introduction thread. Once we realize they are legit, we can remove the restriction.

        OJneg: more like a string of small incidents, where my comments get constantly ignored or downvoted (even when I think I was making meaningful contributions), till I realised, wait why am I here? I don't learn anything, and evidently people there don't want to hear what I have to contribute.
        Thanks for asking though.

        Yes, that's been my experience. Unfortunately the biggest drawback of the subreddit format is the inability to build a community and have meaningful dialogue. Lots of issues arise therin.
