Considering starting a thread for recent releases for recommendations on new music. Good idea, or leave it to the genre threads? May 16, 2022 at 10:48 PM

      Got a used set of Auteurs in maple today. DAC2541-->MHA100-->Auteur is kicking ass.

        I've now had the sensation of headphones disappearing and being left in an open space of sound instead of in a 'head bowl' for lack of a better term.

      Cleaned the listening room. Dusted and wiped everything, down to the last cable. Like a freshly washed car is faster, system is awesomer.

        I remember that you were interested in the LIM. I sold my 2541 to buy the LIM but am now looking to go back to the 2541 for my office which is small 8020s+7040 and Focal Clears with the JOT2. I think it'll be a better fit.

        Some nice validation :). We don't have much chance to hear a lot of gear down here, and I find it hard to conceive of springing for 3-5x the cost to get into theoretically 'significantly better' territory or risk a sidegrade. Care to share your experience?

        Sorry - I was unclear in my comment. I have been making a number of changes and got this out of order. I do LOVE the LIM and have it in my home system now (though i also love it at work when it has been here). In my office, I have just tried a BF2 chasing the sound of the LIM, but it was not an ideal combination. I am returning the BF2 and have another 2541 on order. I remember it sitting very well here.

        I suspect it must be my bad installation or something. But since the full load temp can hardly reach 80, I think it's fine? So I just leave it there...

      Qobuz Windows app sucks balls, so now I'm trialling Audirvana, which sucks balls. WTF is with all this shitty software?

        Despite my prior prejudice, Roon has come out ahead. Integration with HQPlayer is excellent and fast, and it does the better job of managing Qobuz' API vs Audirvana. It doesn't hold a candle to JRiver for local library management, but in terms of the two main shifts in my playback experience (Streaming + HQPlayer) it's a clear win. Fuck.

        @Cryptowolf I have been looking at this and I'm going to go Foobar2000 and MP3Tag for tag management. I use a fair number of views in FB2K and JRMC to ensure tagging is consistent, but FB2K can do everything I need for free.

        @dematted It's not an attack: it's a fact, borne out every decade in every survey. I care about all of the Jewish people! I care about you. And I wish the facts were different, or that the surveys would come back with different results. So please don't shoot the messenger (especially when I am the messenger).

        Related to the situation in Judaism (not that it is a 100% correlation) Archbishop Tutu himself was part of the rapidly dying liberal wing of the Anglican church. What the children of these kind of believers have firgured out is that if your Christianity is just the conventional social mores "at prayer", well Christianity is superfluous. You don't need the Cross to be "a good person".

        The only part of Anglican church that is actually passing the faith on to their children is the "continuing Anglican movement", somewhat ironically led mostly by African bishops who have themselves resisted the colonization of theological liberalism and "wet finger in the air moralism" from their Euro/North American peers.

      Sundara vs HD600: initially more different than better/worse. Now Sundara is growing on me. MHA100 also likely to bring the best out of it.

        WHO might have been optimistic choosing a scheme with only 24 categories. I suggest names next, like for hurricanes but reflecting region of origin - eg Sheila & Trev for Aus & NZ variants.

      Going to try Sundara as an intro to Planars, and hopefully a bit of an upgrade from HD600. Well, specifically in the bass department.

        Unless you exactly know what you will get with Sundara (via audition, loaner, etc), be careful. For a clear upgrade and good bass from HFM, HE6SE (either v1 or v2) would be the minimum I can comfortably recommend.

        Buying used locally, and the current owner wants first right of repurchase if I decide to onsell, so pretty low risk. I'm doing it out of curiosity mostly. I'd be very suprised based on reviews if it doesn't dig lower than HD600. I'm not expecting an improvement in quality, but just extension. I guess I'll find out :).

        Sounds like you have been trying to cover up some sins. I know what you mean, I have been fighting some crunch as well. It helped me when I got the room and speakers sorted. Then the sub is like frosting on the cake. Biggest recent change was fixing the ceiling ringing.
