      Last night I killed my MCTH. Today, I brought it back from the dead. Thanks for your help, @dBel84!!!

      Thanks @atomicbob and others in the MCTH thread for pulling me into the LPS rabbit hole ...

        You're doing a great job of being a guinea pig. I'm waiting to hear the results.

        We'll only really know if it's any good when Bob gets his. Hopefully it'll at least improve the bass a bit.

        same here! thanks to @james444 and yourself for pointing me out to this 3M micropore solution! Myself I have "only" used 2 strips with the stock cable and stock isolation tips and this sounds quite promising! need to do more listening though to confirm!

      Pi Zero W is great, until it hangs. I hate that spinning circle of death.

        I think the built in WiFi is interfering with these. I have to reboot my Pi Zero every few days (it is only connected to a printer using CUPS). I am thinking about getting a hub and a separate USB WiFi adapter.

        More or less fixed by disabling "wifi power save". Just hangs occasionally after using a phone to control Volumio through the web GUI.

      MCTH finally made it to Taiwan. It's at home, waiting for me to get off work. Pi Zero W also in hand. It's literally the size of a matchbox.

        Yes, unboxing was very pleasurable, aside from the dent. Forgot to mention that in my post just now. Same happened with my K7XX a while back. The outer box took a beating and the inner was a bit scathed.

        Likely didn't happen locally. Taiwan Post is pretty good. MCTH was awol for over 2 weeks between Frankfurt and here. My money is on it happening then.

        My CC declined & blocked a Schiit Order <twice> in Feb, due to some "fraud prevention" nonsense (even though I shopped w/ same CC/Account since 2013 w/ no issues, whatsoever).
        That was during an unexpected 2.5 weeks delay; so after a Pending charge went into limbo, then through, then blocked AGAIN, 17 days later... I Emailed ([email protected]), so he FWD it to Amy & Laura, right away, which helped to resolve it all.

        BTW, Emailing Jason directly should (IMHO) be like the <last resort>, since he's definitely busy-enough as is w/ running the business, engineering new products/upgrades; to Troubleshoot [all of us] or answer our [silly] Questions.
        But he does, indeed, FWD/Notify the proper folks at Schiit, if the issues are serious/important enough, for a Customer, which is why I stuck w/ them; they won't leave ya hangin' in the end!

      I thought I was done with transducers, but Prophile 8 is better than Andromeda, and "reasonably" priced. http://goo.gl/aWMQtL

        Transducers have always been a matter of taste and how aligned it is to your innate preferences. My Andro has been a white elephant since I (now realise I) heavily prefer my (dynamic) MG6pro regardless of source. I'm just lucky I found my muse in my first few steps.

        Probably selling the Andro off soonish.
