        Agreed. Just watched it Friday night. Possibly my favorite super hero movie now. Incredibly well done.

      Got good deal on Focal Elex. Waiting for it to arrive, I have been reading. "I might have made a huge mistake."

        I had few issues while playing hi res files, not always but sometimes,when on Wifi using Roon and hence moved to wired connection for it.

      Subwoofer playing with an [email protected] 25hz. Much to my surprise it is still very easy to recognise the tune playing.

      THX789 drop live. Seems it had a rather "mild" reception here on SBAF. Placed order none the less.

        Yeah, my biggest praise for the thing was when I had it on a 9-month trip in South-East Asia. 220V electricity w/ no ground, and it still performed similar to how it does in the U.S. w/ 110V grounded outlets. Can't say the same for like... everything else under the price point.

        I think it's reception here was fairly positive, but obviously nothing close to some Drop members. Definitely don't think it's "OMFG SUPER ENDGAME" like some of them claim. All that talk of "wire with gain" makes me sad.

        Been around this hobby long enough too be sceptical about all this "endgame" talk. What I do like is the 3 various outputs, and price. In Europe it will be a lot cheaper than a Jot.

      My sealed subwoofers have cracked cases. Real woodcase does require a lot of planning. Time to make some new ones with plywood this time.

        How did you get cracks? Is it Baltic birch ply or just sheets of birch? I use Baltic birch ply all the time and have never had issues.

        This is not plywood, but edge glued panels of birch. The there came a crack in the panels, where they are glued together. Next will use plywood.

        I just noticed that my headband is getting some cracking in it now. Too bad they went out of business. I saw somewhere online where a guy sent his well-worn pair in and paid for a pad replacement and they basically completely refurbished them.

        Wish I’d ordered a spare before I moved to China. They are not common here and cannot find the pads. Hoping they are easily attainable when I visit the US next year.

        I've seen bits and pieces of his Twilight stuff as I have a teenage daughter, lol. But things he has done since then make me think he has the chops to pull it off. Think of it this way, no actor they choose could be as bad as Kilmer, so there's that, lol.

      The Sony ZX300 + EMU Teak is an extremely satisfying pairing. Much better than the Elegia pairing I tried. Does Elegia need more power?

      "Endegame" was a great conclusion, tribute and heartfelt farewell to the last 10 years of the MCU. The end of an era.
