Going back to articles on audio I've read before now that I've got a bit more stuff crammed in my head is exciting! #nerd Oct 12, 2018 at 8:16 AM

        @zonto Eh. Taking a bit of a break from other responsibilities so might as well keep myself entertained in a semi-useful manner :P

        The film came out in 1980, so yeah, not necessarily for the Tumblr generation.

        BokuAca is brilliant, really. I've read the manga and re-watched epsiodes too, never seem to get tired of it! They got the balance of western comics and good ol shonen just right, which is impressive.

        Calligraphy is a great hobby because it requires one to calm the hell down and clear their mind otherwise what comes out looks like chicken spasms, haha. I kinda envy that you had mandatory classes, the most I got was basic cursive penmanship in primary. Never too late to pick it back up and try for better if it so suits you though!

        @Thad E Ginathom Yup! I'm surprised how far along facial recognition has gotten— Facebook and Google are able to pick out and identify even background faces with alarming accuracy.

        @Vansen Oh I don't doubt that. What I find alarming is how brazen and blasé China is and how indifferent the world at large seems to be

        Epic binge indeed! Depending on where you left off there's A LOT of new developments to digest. Kinda sad since I've been a fan of the show for years now. Gonna feel strange knowing there won't be any new episodes coming out after this, but at least it ended in its own time instead of going full Simpsons.

        Demo was Micro iDSD (DAC) or Chord Hugo (DAC)>ZDT Jr.>HP-3 cf. TH-900, Susvara.

        Pros of rocking low impedance biodynas is that they don't need a lot of ampage, though they do benefit from nicer gear upstream (which is about the main reason I'm looking at the ZDT Jr and dreaming of OPT SETs, haha).

        @Biodegraded That explains a lot. I was managing to get close approximations of Marv and cskippy's stuff using pink noise, so I figured I might have been on to something. Either I'm forgetful as hell or I just missed that, hah!

        And yeah, I'm not going full measurebator here, just establishing a baseline to dick around with mods to check my subjective impressions against ;)

        Heh - I was really meaning you're supposed to listen to the music rather than the pink noise. But have a look at the 'Measurement setups - post your rig!' thread; some good info on settings in there, eg @philipmorgan has a link to his settings and procedure. Don't fuss it to much until you get a proper mic though, you'll have to change them.

        Yup! This was just a quick-n-dirty sorta approach to establish a baseline with front filters and all that jazz. Listening impressions always come first, but I'm not very confident about my ability to identify specific problem areas going off subjectives alone— need a bit more practise there— which is why I randomly felt like assigning some numbers to what I was hearing, shit approximations as they may be :))

        Figured I might invest in a basic turntable just to get some play out of it, see if I can settle in with analogue.
