Lingering Sentiment

Acquaintance, from Texas

Listening to my first "nice" pair of speakers. Wharfedale 12.2s. Really liking them so far, even with a budget Costco receiver. Sep 14, 2022

      I've been playing Breath of the Wild for about a month now and it really did deserve the hype. So much fun to stumble into.

        It is truly killer. Just beat it last week after putting about 150 hours in.

      I've discovered about a new category of music to love: "torch songs." Also I'm now damned to collect Sinatra albums for the rest of my life.

        Gotta love the Chairman. And yeah, torch songs are great for when you're looking for a bit of melancholia for accompaniment.

      Picked up a half-dozen Sinatra CDs today. Hope they're good remasters. They're Capitol remasters from the late 80s and early 90s.

      So the Moto Z doesn't have a standard HP jack. I don't think I care for this new trend.

      I wish I knew where I could go to listen to a decent speaker setup. That's going to be my next goal.

        To simply listen to one? Or to purchase one?

        Just to listen. I won't have that kind of spending power (or the space!) for a good while.

      I see a Bifrost 4490 or Bifrost Multibit in my future. After that, I may be done with upgrading. But then again, I said the same thing years ago...

        What DAC are you using at the moment?

        None at the moment. I ended up selling the GO 450 as it was too bright for my tastes.

        Yes, but, sputter, but... digital... ohhhhh -The image translators work for the construct program – but there’s way too much information to decode the Matrix.

      I just added 5 albums to my library after about half a year without buying any new music. Feels good.

      The main thing I learned from my first meet was how much I enjoy the gear I already have. Maybe I'll be content with mid-fi forever.

        Valhalla 2 + hd600? Seems pretty nice, is this considered mid-fi? Maybe, depending on the DAC in the chain?

        No DAC (yet) in the chain, so pretty sure it would be mid-fi (though hi-fi seems hard to define these days). Hearing a good speaker setup will be my next goal I think.

        I've had a similar experience. I went to Axpona to listen to many of the high end headphones (Ether, HD800, Stax, etc.). I brought along my existing headphones and listened on the same amps. I could hear the differences, but still preferred my headphones for the amps and music I own. Nothing at all wrong with practicing satisfice.

      Figured out that the discomfort I was getting from my chain at higher listening levels was from the GO 450. Maybe I'm treble sensitive?

        GO450: great for the price, but pretty typically Sabre sounding as far as tonal balance is concerned. You're probably not that treble sensitive if you can make it to higher listening levels with the 450 and only describe it as "discomfort".

        Good to know. Guess the GO450 just isn't a good match for the Valhalla 2 and HD600s.

      Looks like I'll be going to my very first meet in less than a month. Sweet.

      Have I missed something important here during the past few days? Seeing a lot of discord around. Not that it's an inherently bad thing.

        I think the s/n ratio started getting out of hand, and SBAF went into bag-of-dicks mode to quiet down some of the fuckery. Overall seems to have been handled well. Some feathers were ruffled, and then smoothed back out where appropriate.

        Glad to hear that there's a method to this. I try to keep out of trouble, but I was a little worried that people were getting tired of the newbies.

        No, definitely not directed at n00bs. There are lots of great new people here. I think it was more that some people were just getting a little too self-involved in some threads.

      Getting the Valhalla 2 was a mistake. Now I want a Bifrost to stack with it.

        I'm on the way to doing the same. Just waiting for one to pop up at my local dealer and hope my wallet doesn't die out on me.

        Ditto - I bought Valhalla 2 awhile ago, about when Yggdrasil started making the rounds, and then there was talk of trickle down burritos. So I held out until the Bifrost MB came, out. and I ordered that the day it was announced. These have been great purchases.
