      I'm quite surprised how much better stuffing a bit of foam into my BT running earphones works for channel imbalance vs. balance adjustment.

      BW2 incoming, I have HD6XX, but what plays best with it? I know it's recommended for 800/s but is that the sweetest spot?

        I use modded HD650's (KISS Mod) with my BW2 and have been extremely happy with the combination. With that said, I can see stock HD6XX/650's as being too warm. Enjoy your new toys! :)

        Thanks folks. I find HD6XX a little warm even with DAC1541 so HD600 it will be. I have a friend who can really use a pair of HD6XX and will appreciate them.

      Trying JRMC again. Converted library to FLAC. Crashing on playlist clear, fixed by patch. Now import broken. Restore broken too. FU JRMC.

      Running the 2 Oceans half marathon this morning, barefoot. Shooting for 2 hours if I can get out from the crush at the start quick enough.

        Haha two hours was my goal for the one half marathon I ever ran and I just barely squeaked in under it. Good luck man! I certainly didn’t do it barefoot

        The race was absolutely packed all the way to the finish, dodging people all the way, managed a 2:02:05. I'm very happy with that! I spent an extra 380m weaving through the crowd.

      So we're in for load-shedding 2-3x/day for the foreseeable future. Time to look at batteries & pure sine inverters...any recommendations?

        There's a nice Victron AIO that does this. It'll cope with 240 Ah. But no solar. I must check if it can coexist with a simultaneously connected Victron MPPT charger.

        We will see when I build my own system. ;-) I bet there are a lot of different options out there. Just checked, 14.4 kWh of solar batteries would cost 2200€ for a company (2763€ norma price). When you have off-grid capable system then they say you need at least 3 days battery power available. That would be at least 3x that.

        It's a bit like turntables and speakers! The bits at each end of the chain can get very, very expensive. Solar panels... ... ...batteries!

        And the bits in the middle are not cheap.

        I'm not even looking to go off grid. Just need to support essentials through regular short power cuts and would *like* to reduce the power bills during the day. Anyway, for supporting the essentials I am sorted, at reasonable cost.

        Yeah I confess I'm avoiding them more than embracing them. Hunting for the 'sweet spot' is still very mechanical and error-prone.

        What they tell me is that you have to commit. If you keep using the old stuff, you'll never adapt. That's what they tell me: obviously I never did.
        I looked into it again recently (no pun intended), and they seem to have evolved since I tried them, especially if you spend really a lot. But people say there is stuff like PC screens that single-vision suits a heap better. I spend a lot of time in front of a screen.

        It wasn't working either way - I don't see Alerts in portrait but in landscape I did/do. My screen scaling must have somehow wonked out.

        I’m all for it. I see a lot of people who have their equipment rack or TV between their speakers. I’ve found that removing the rack and or TV improves imaging. I love to see what people are doing.

        Right now the structure is "Two Channel Gear Discussion" with subcategories "Preamps", "Power Amps" and "Speakers". Acoustics fit into none of these, so I propose adding "Acoustics". Subcategories could be "Home Theatre", "Listening Rooms" "outdoors" "Professional" ...you get the picture. Need an admin to create this. Maybe it deserves a proper thread for input?
