I tried to talk the kids out of seeing Dr Dolittle, but my youngest said: "I do not care about reviews, I might like it!" Feb 2, 2020

      Daredevil cancelled. This is discrimination against blind people. Is nothing sacred no more?

        Guess it's all going to that disney streaming service. The two remaining shows get one more season each since it already was in production.

        If they cancel Punisher I hope Bernthal steps up the method and makes the house of mouse bleed for the injustice.

      Massdrop Pinnacle PX arrived. Thanks@Jokko. First impressions are that these are comfortable with the right tips and smooooth.

        Not sure about the bass though. Works well when in office, but maybe a bit mild for usage on the go.

        Still working on the "voicing" of my DIY speakers. I have used Troels damping techniques. My boxes are sealed thought, where as most of his are reflex.

        It’s the goal of any publicly traded corporation to put share value first so yeah.. it would be nice if they put consumers first but it doesn’t happen unless doing so is tied to share value.

        @atomicbob, I didn't see it on that web page, but isn't part of the reason for lab usb hubs to prevent crazy stuff being sent up the wire to the host computer? PCs are better when they are not exploding ;)

        @Thad E Ginathom the main purpose is to minimize noise downstream to the USB device, especially when testing USB devices in an EMI screen room.

        You are correct, material matters. Plastic will only act as dust caps. Metal is needed for RFI performance.

        @atomicbob, do you think there is a meaningful difference in performance between (1) gold-plated copper with no PFTE/Teflon insulation and (2) nickel-plated brass with PFTE/Teflon insulation?
        Oct 17, 2018
      4. atomicbob

        Without testing both on a specific device with known RFI susceptibility, I couldn't predict which would be better for any given circumstance. When testing preamps and amps, I run quick tests with / without external grounding and input terminations to see which combination yields best performance.

        Pretty much why everything I have at the moment was bought used. Could be worse, though. At least people can wait for others to get bored of their Elex and put it up F/S while they move on to the next FotM. Saves you a few bucks that way, though you're gonna lose in shipping, handling, and taxes anyway (sigh).

        I will focus on the crossover only. But I need to know what you have to work with it. Also, if you can provide the current crossover it would be helpful in order to diagnose and correlate with what you hear and what you would like to do.

        Typically, a topheavy company that pisses away shareholders' money on management consultants will have a new 5-year strategy every year. 'Plans' are usually too specific for such outfits.

        When playing chess you stick to strategy. A plan is more something for a business venture. You know business plan. Thing is the words "strategy" and "plan" overlap in meaning and implementation. Damn you context...

        The strategy is long-term and focuses on steps. The plan depends and tends to include budgets and ROI targets. At least that is how remember it from my old marketing books.

        Should be 400 at best, since you need to get clear pads or maybe hm5 or dekoni to make them not suck. realistically 500 should be easy. There are 2 on headfi for 475 and 525. Or else get some elex.

        Problems with Elex is that with EU import tax it's pretty close to the price of a new Elear. Not sure if I want to spend this much money on something that most likely sounds like a "french" NH/X2.
