      I guess if your HD600/650 drivers fail after 2 years of purchase, you're screwed. No one has them in stock, including Sennheiser.

        @james444 Thanks for that resource. Yeah, that's almost the same price for most of the used pairs I've looked at, so used is probably the only option people have now.

        Dayum, yea, that’s not very reassuring. Thanks for the shout out about the situation. Please keep us posted on what happens.

        @EagleWings Yeah, it's very disappointing. For sure, I'll keep checking audiosanctuary every now and then to see if Sennheiser comes through, but I wouldn't get my hopes up. I'll probably just pick up a used pair to extract the drivers.

      Am I crazy or does my local rock radio station sound like tubes are being used to broadcast the audio. It sounds awesome to me.

      Man, the performance you get from the Schiit Midgard via XLR is pretty impressive considering it's price.

        @joch I think, but I'm not certain. I haven't tried the single ended out yet, so I can't say for sure if it's due to the halo topology, the amp itself, or a combination of both working well together. Whatever it is, it sounds good to me and the preamp functionality is a nice plus.

        @ColdsnapBry I'm curious to hear what you think of it. It might be the most neutral and transparent amp that I've, personally, ever heard while still being musical and actually enjoyable to listen to.

        Of course that isn’t the friend SBAF price, just going by marketplaces in general. You can always search on HiFiShark by “Sold/Expired” to get an idea what items are selling for lately.

        Picked up my A2/OG w/Unison on USAM a few months ago for $1350 shipped and fee's included. The A1/GS cards and rom were $175 shipped from a member here.

      I went to my first metal concert last weekend. It only cemented my reasons for not going to them previously. Too loud to be enjoyable.

        @MellowVelo I have the old ER20 with the longer tubes and the non-blue tips (normal size tips; blue are smaller). I don't think the ER20 has replaceable tips. They might be called EtyPlugs now? Since I got mine 10+ years ago, Etymotic came out with the ER20XS. Those have a shorter tube and replaceable tips it looks like. I need to replace mine. Despite cleaning them after every use, it's time for a new pair...

      I'm pleasantly surprised to find out that moving your speakers closer to or further away from a wall changes more than just the bass.

        Both are modded differently though? How is this a comparison? My stock LP definitely had bass. Just lacked clarity and resolution to me.

        Thank you all for your input. I ask because the datasheet for the chipset my soundcard uses states the clock's maximum jitter is 2ns and I was curious to know if it's good, bad, or meaningless.

        I thought it seemed low, but since I'm ignorant on the topic, I wanted to ask and get your thoughts on the matter.

        Thank you @atomicbob, I'm definitely checking those papers out.

        2 ns is pretty bad. I think my DAC had trouble locking to a source with 1 ns jitter.

        I've always thought they sounded like a mix between Led Zep and Rush, but what they sound like & who they're compared to is most likely going to vary depending on the person. I couldn't care less though because I simply just enjoy their music.

        Their new album is mixed extremely well too, in my opinion, so it's was a treat to listen to it in one sitting.

        Holy crap...70's prog is back! They finally channeled Rush and Genesis. It is really good! This is the most original they have sounded so far by still staying tied to heir influences.

        And yes, recorded, mix, and mastered very well. It has dynamic range. This deserves a Grammy nom for engineering. This is one of the best rock albums SQ I have heard in awhile...like RAM good.

        @famish99 Maybe I shouldn't have just said soldering. I'm not building anything, I'm not that intelligent or confident. I just resoldered a cable to correct the polarity coming out of my DBX processor. I've never soldered before because it was intimidating to me.

        Not much a cable person myself, but it seems likely cables may not require breaking in the same way other components might? Might be the case that you've just adapted to minor differences over time?

        The layer of oxide thing has been proposed as a possible reason why a change between two cables that should have no difference genuinely appears to make one. It is even suggested that we plug/unplug/clean plugs and sockets.

        Another suggested reason is that one didn't (with speakers) put one's head in exactly the same place after making the change. Inches can matter! ...
