        The people of course...this is such a solitary hobby, I always find it refreshing to chat in person with like minded individuals. As far as gear, @thegunner100 's ZDT , @Overkill Red 's Pendant and (I believe it was @GanGreinke 's) Liquid Platinum were eye openers for me...tubes galore.

      To keep the thread on topic: I used to listen to music on headphones a lot in the car (passenger, not driver). Back before I began seriously investing in audio gear I had an AKG K550 and a phone that still had FM radio functionality built in.

        Makes sense. With open headphones, it blends seamlessly...kinda blew my mind

        It's a little difficult to integrate into a system given the limited I/O, but I really enjoyed using my Subpac S2 with IEMs and headphones. Feels "faster" than a normal sub and has better phase coherence with headphones given direct-coupling to the body.

        I get random audio from one of the ads on Chrome via PC. Doesn't happen on mobile (iOS) for me. It only plays for a second and then comes back maybe 5-10s later over and over.

        Wonder if he will say he got it at accommodation pricing and selling it at what he paid for.

        Or he might of just got the unit for free and selling it is little unethical.

        When caught, deny deny deny. I should run for office, I got the steps down.

        I remember my time at Questyle, a QP1R was sent to one of the bigger headphone reviewer sites. The guy was sent the unit with the assumption that after he reviewed it he would send it back. Promised for over a year the review was coming. Then admitted he sold the dap. Great experience.

        We do a good amount of good natured teasing in our house, but I was baffled at 1st. I mean anything with "trump' must be some kinda insult,but I didn't get it. Then it hit me. Good thing I wasn't drinking anything or I would've done a spit take myself.

        A little unwieldy for a hike, don't you think?
        I considered a cart, but that kinda defeats the point of a hike. So I ran. Faster than I thought I could.

        I read that. Later on he says how technologists have to grapple with these questions and not philosophers because it's out of their reach, but I disagree. Deciding whether hitting a grandparent or child is a better choice is exactly the sort of ethical value problem that philosophy explores, otherwise known as the 'trolley problem'.

        Machines are better equipped to decide too. No person would actually be able to decide within a split second which person to hit, they just hit whoever and deal with the aftermath. Machines however can and there's no reason why this can't be programmed in the system.

        Interesting point. He's saying that it's basically not possible with current tech, since everything is based on mathematical calculations and narrow parameters, but if they could overcome that hurdle, I agree.

        "both subjectivists and objectivists are wrong on lots of things, at least in my opinion. Both camps have members that get way, way, way too into their dogma, both camps have advocates that really need to chill out and have a beer"

        Brent said just about the same thing in so many words...I'm fairly certain there's right & wrong on both sides.

        That home theatre link got me searching for DIY A/B switches, which got me to DIYAudio, which got me into a long thread there about how someone doesn't believe in relativity and the speed of light being a constant. Disturbingly, couldn't tell if it was joking or serious.
