      Vali 2 back in the house. Hello, soundstage and 3D sound. Fulla 2 remarkable for $99, but had forgotten how much more can be had for $150.

        I've had a Vali 2 on loan for awhile and have been using it with the HD 6xx, dt 880 and HE-400i in a threeway comparison.

        I think once there's a Modi Multibit with Gen 5 USB that will be my go-to recommended setup.

      Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it. Though this hobby doesn't get the time and money it used to, I'm quite thankful to have SBAF.

      So instead of chasing (once again) low/mid fi dacs and amps for the HD650, should I just grab an Andromeda and focus solely on 2 channel?

        If things go as planned, the HD650s, as much as I love them, might not get that much use in the future.

        If you are listening mostly at work and you don't want to bother others and don't get startled when someone taps you on the shoulder because you can't hear them. IEM's might be a plan. I use my Beyer DT-1350's at work. No bother to others but I can hear others yelling at me. :)

        I wear Beyer DT250 at work when I might be interrupted and Campfire Lyra II when I need to really concentrate. I highly recommend an IEM if you wear glasses and/or need to focus.

      I don't mind Windows 10, but hate that the only way I know a major update is available is something broken. Like sound this time around.

        Only W10 Pro is worth it. W10 for consumers takes away the control you used to have.

        I use windows server 2016. You can get it free from Dreamspark if you have a .edu email address. It's windows 10 without all the coddling.

      Ugh. Looking for the best masters of individual songs is forcing me to fight with my OCD of having only one album/copy of something.

        I hadn't thought of the "best of" compilations angle. Choosing masterings is quite the rabbit hole but the rewards can be enormous.

      Any rumors of a Bifrost Multibit update? Might hang on to my Bifrost and double down later this year instead of take a bath now.

        I like the Bifrost Multibit better due to the correct Schiit treble definition that the Gungnir Multibit and Yggdrasil have. Modi Multibit has that Bifrost Multibit upper bass/lower mid veil throughout the entire audible range.

        I did some photography inside the Lyric earlier this year for their promotional materials. Amazing venue to have an opportunity to photograph.

        I got my first dislike because of the absence of one. This is what I get for not being more inflammatory. Ironically, he didn't have one.

        "In a while" can be a very flexible term.

        When do you want to eat dinner? In a while.
        What time are you going jogging? In a while.

      I mean, yeah, drugs, sex, and rock n roll would probably lead to a shorter life, but seriously? All in a two week span?
