I just found out one of my best friends had her home broken into by thieves. Cunting bastards. I hope they choke on their spoils. Aug 10, 2018 at 10:15 PM

        Italy. If I were anywhere near her I wouldn't be so frustrated and of course I'd get off my ass. Sorry for the post, had to vent somewhere and this afforded me relative anonymity

        900 Euro lost, house trashed. Fuckers. I'm just glad she walked in her home with her boyfriend, because the way she said it she just barely missed them. I don't want to think about what might have happened if she'd been caught alone.

        -minidsp nanodigi + external smartphone battery + hifimediy usb to optical dongle, but needs computer based software to configure
        -minidsp portable headphone amp. Haven’t seen any impressions, is $500, offers a super low output power, and again needs computer software

        Haha, sorry, guess I was a bit obtuse.

        I was looking for comparisons with other cans on different sites, read the SBAF preview thread for the nth time for measurements, then noticed the ports on the pair Marvey pictured. Looked up other photos online to confirm, realized my pair might have been a tiny bit bassier than intended, and then took an X-Acto to solve it :P

        @Hands this would be a manufacturer? so the measurements won't be easily available that is. I've always wondered why more people don't do this when measuring gear, but I suppose not all cans have easily swappable pads.

        I've held off getting an EARS rig, mostly cuz of finances but also because making my own measurement setup sounds more fulfilling. Also, flat plate would allow for padless measurements.

        Hmm.

        @WNovizar Well my local forum isn't too bad. It does get really FotM-y especially around lower-tier stuff, but you get good ears and awesome gear too, plus some stuff under SBAF's radar.

        I'm... morbidly curious to see how much worse it gets than this, to be honest. Also might make a good case study for placebo.

        It's all cool on the vinyl threads. Maybe the lack of ear-bleeding listener fatigue? Or the endless, ritualistic cleaning, adjusting and tweaking has numbed us to the outside world.

        Pads turned to mush, one channel dead (hopefully a cable thing), might make for fun tinkering along with the Grados I may or may not be getting to mod.

        I have hated most Grado's I have heard. That is until I heard a pair of SR80s modded by dBel84. They were shockingly good. I definitely don't think you need to go high end to get some really good sound.

        Sigh, realistically speaking cash would be much preferable, but I have been wanting a nice speaker setup myself. I've been sleeping on it (no, not the speakers you dinguses :P), and I'll likely let go of the Klipsch headphones if I do get them (owner also interested in trading both for my headphones, which was odd). Agh, might as well look up schematics DIY the whole kit and kaboodle as a summer project

        After watching the replay I feel some Aussies also behaved abhorrently. Both sides should have handled things better imo.

        There were also some Filo players that appeared to try to protect the Aussie player being bashed by the mob. Should be more focus on these good samaritans rather than blind nationalism.

        @insidious meme I'm pretty sure the fact that they were losing by a country mile helped, yeah. I think it was a rough elbow from Gilas that was the last straw? Jesus. Shit show is a polite thing to call it.
