      Who can I ask around here to help me fine-tune my speaker crossovers? I am looking for a mentor with a lot of patience.

        Hi @Poleepkwa. Start a thread in the DIY forum. Let me know what drivers and enclosure you have, and I'll take a look at it.

        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.

        It is kind of like a plan are the specific steps of the strategy.

        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.

        The average person in the non-business world probably doesn’t know the technical definitions of these nor the difference.

      No luck with my Elear purchase. To get reasonably priced French headphone will most likely have to import from the States?

        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.

        Read about this. Disney might regret this. It is not as if he went full Walt Disney (now he was scandalous!). Either way the MCU might suffer from this one...

      ATH R70X looks like an interesting design. Reception around here seems to be lukewarm though.

        Because ath tend to be flawed.

        The 3d wing system makes assumptions about head width (they don't swivel) the m70x is piercingly bright. Ready to be proven wrong, mind.

        Lachlan liked it. Hands thought it better than Fidelio X2. Purrin seems to have liked it. I have the HD650, not sure if this is really that different, considering most think the HD650 the better headphone.
