        Speaking of moons, there's a total lunar eclipse next week, check if it'll be visible from you location.

        I realized this is a complete tangent, but more rewarding than talking about nutters.

      I need a decent usb audio adapter with 3.5mm headphone/mic combo jack...any suggestions? Portability not required.

        "Decent" and "combo jack" is a tough set of requirements- they tend to be found on lowest common denominator kit.

        Yeah I mean decent within the realm of that sort of crap. I have a shitty logitech that sounds better than the Jabra they issued me. The headphones are actually OK, but the usb DAC part (has 3.5mm combo) is utter shit.

      Best lightweight VOIP headset? USB based, Skype for Business controls preferred. Stress lightweight - 4+ hrs calls some days.

        If you're going to use EQ then I'd say go for it! It sounds pretty nice w/ EQ to me (and pretty bad without). Add some bass, reduce the peak at 7~8k, and you should be good to go. Its comfort isn't the best though being on-ear, hurts my ear after an hour - another thing to consider.

        Smart choice. I consider the Sine as part of the Apple ecosystem. And if you're not willing to go down that rabbit hole a bit (not judging), then its more wise to look elsewhere. There's some weird voodoo, witchcraft, juu juu going on with that Cypher, that's more then just equalization...

        The point of totl gear should be that you have bought your way out. Nervosa should be the game in mid-fi.

        Cap Nervosa (for me at least) was Sunday. Spent part of the afternoon today talking with @Melvillian about changing 7$ resistors on a $3K+ Amp.

        If you know where you're coming from, where you want to go, and how you intend to get there, then it's not nervosa, it's just tweaking.

        Well tbh, it seems to be the case for every massdrop/schiit product. I don't really believe in something being too good for the price.

        @k4star ? I agree with most of your opinions. I did try schiit stuff and never liked anything outside the Yaggy. ECP T3 was not my cup of tea, Massdrop Plus was not good(which i posted), Focal Clears impressions mirror @bazelio's impressions on the loaner. I don't have headphones at the moment. Just pointing out a pattern which follows the graph you posted before your ban.

        I think there definitely is an element of him seeking validation for his gear purchases. I get it, I just think he reacts too quickly and negatively

      I'm kind of impressed with the Focusrite Scarlett Solo. I bought it just for SonarWorks calibration but it's proving to be a handy gadget.

        I was looking into it for room calibration with Roon.

        What's a decent mic to pair with it for that?

        Unfortunately in this case entirely the opposite. Auditing ancient versions of apps that are no longer material to the business and have been swallowed in replatforming of source control systems is an exercise in pointless technicality. At least the M&Ms had a good raison d'etre.

        More a Kate Bush fan than a Tool one, but that sounds about right! Both have that sort of affable, perky weirdness to their sound, only Kate Bush has way more of it, haha.

        It has probably buggered your hearing up a little bit, too- all that nonsense going on around your eustachian tubes and so forth.. so maybe you've ducked a second disappointment?

        When I got my Utopia I was convinced there was an LR imbalance, and a much steeper treble roll off on one channel. Off the back of the Tyll/Katz stuff I was all set to return. Took me a few days to realise my right ear wasn’t popping when I swallow, it was my damned eustachian tube acting up! Saved myself some embarrassment there.
