Too sensitive for SBAF, Male, 26, from Pasig, Philippines

Magnitude 6.3 earthquake. Should probably look into a sturdy shelf for gear and other valuables now that I think about it. Apr 22, 2019 at 2:19 AM

      Cast a Korean woman to play Nagini in the new HP movie, internet apparently loses its mind. Some points make sense, but wtf.

        But, if I'm being honest, the relationship ended when she needed to slither into a burrow with 50 snakes for winter hibernation.

        Don’t fool yourself. This goes on in the States. How long did it take authorities to catch the Boston Marathon bombers? And Camera Edge analytics is just in its infancy, wait a couple of years and you’ll be surprised how ubiquitous it will be, even in small retailers.

        @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.

        My regular home setup is poop, though I do get to demo nice gear sometimes: Bifrost Multibit G5>Micro iDSD (preamp)>HP-V1>HP-3/X00 Ebony. Yes my amp is a porta tube hybrid, haha. I've got a G1217 Sunrise III on loan, but don't count that as "mine".

        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 ;)

        Thanks!

        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 :))

        I'm guessing that $500 spent on a DAC is going to be more satisfying that $500 spent on a table/cart combo. (To clarify the above).

        @bazelio I've got a decent DAC (pretty happy with my Bifrost Multibit so far!), but I have a few LPs I inherited from my grandpa that have sentimental value, plus I'm getting a new game soundtrack box set because... I'm a fan. Haha.

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