Key Lime Pie Infected Aberdeen Wings Spy, Male, 46, from Anaheim, CA

Friend

Today, I hope to see the Red Wings beat the Ducks. The Wings have a better shot this year! (A fun perk of living in Anaheim.) Go Wings! Nov 15, 2022

      Used Asgard 2 for $160. Is it worth the cost over a Magni 2 Uber for HD650? Thanks!

        Yes. The Asgard 2 works great with my HD650!

      Does anyone know If I can get a line out only from the Realtek ALC3221 on my Dell Inspiron 15?

        Is there an option to change between Stereo and Headphones in the Realtek driver software?

        If nothing else, it would be fun to AB if it could. That was a great idea, chakku, but that wasn't an option I could pick. Probably means I can't...

        The option is in the Windows sound wizard setup thing as well but I'm not sure if it would do the trick. You might have to fire up that google-fu if that doesn't work!

      Does anyone remember a recent thread where Purrin was saying something about DACs not really being worth it till a certain price point?

        Really quite interesting and true in hindsight. At the super budget level, an amp makes a bigger difference. Just hard to believe that until you effectively get to Gungnir Multibit or at a minimum a Bifrost, DACs are barely worth it. For $250 right now, I say get a GOV2 and call it a day until you can spend 10x that.

      What do you prefer for classical string quartets? HD600, HD650 or HE400S?

      Headfier in Bay Area selling ok condition HD800 for $815. Thought someone might be interested; there's a lot of you around there, I think.

        Yeah, I actually shot myself in the foot regarding my set up. I had a HD600, Modi 2 and Magni 2. It was a fairly new pair of HD600 and still tough on the jaw. Like an idiot, I sold the hole set up, and went once again to iems. And yet, short of a TOTL iems, there is just no comparison... So mid-fi purgatory, here I come. Again.

        Don't really know where to go next. Maybe back GOV2 and balanced HD650 or HD600? I like that the GO would be portable and I could use it at home with maybe a TH-X00 (when I find one). I could rotate them between home and office...

        HD6X0 + GOV2 (maybe hold out for + to get the better case and battery) is probably the best bang for the buck I can think of, that's for sure.

      So, since I'm being honest... Have any of you been tempted by the M100 even though you know its disappoint? The matte is just... cool.

        The sound isn't for me--way too dark--but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to a basshead.

        I own the vModa m100. It was my first "big" Headphone purchase. They are decent if you want bass head cans. I find that v shaped signatures are the antithesis of the signature I like, which is that I value the mids too much. But for a basshead, they do a nice job. I like how they look, and the build is great.

        I've owned it 4 times at this point (sold my latest one in Shadow last week). They EQ extremely well, are lightweight, reasonably durable, fashionable, and very comfortable. Only thing you can't correct with EQ on them is the slightly metallic treble timbre. That ends up being the dealbreaker for me every time.

      Three days later, only 80,000 homes still without power. We've been having lots of guests!

        They're working hard. 100,000 homes/locations have actually gotten power back from when we started. I'm thankful that we never lost power, but its completely hit or miss who has it.

        You and everyone else. I posted a few names but it's so hard to think out of the whole HF community you might have come up with it first.
