Dismantled my 3-way prototype months ago to build 'nice version'. Now I have no time. Other audio systems suck too much to enjoy music. Meh Oct 15, 2018 at 1:29 PM

        Audiopilia can become a bit of a curse once you can no longer not hear why everything else is so bad.

      The original Clip. A coworker gave me one, I dug it out of my trash and gave it a listen after all these years: what a ballzy littlething!

        Keep mine in my gym bag and it's still running strong. Battery is holding up surprisingly well too. Mine's probably 10 years old.

      Tip for those using el-cheapo-fi pro soundcards for headpones: short out the retard high source resistance inside -> much better sound!

        More importantly output from guitar amp is no-no to headphone out after that. I presume this is why the Steinberg pos had 90 ohms there.

      Every time I diy an enclosure for my projects I get the sense 'diy' might not be worth the trouble.

        If it makes you feel any better, enclosures just suck, period. They're pricey (especially in small quantities), fiddly, easy to get wrong, quick to scratch/dent...and, unfortunately, they're all that most people see.

        Indeed, I can appreciate that nice chassis costs 400 bucks for power amp. That, even though I have quite alright workshop with lathe, MIG welder etc etc to use..
        The thing is, it's boring, electronics is the fun stuff.
        DIY only makes sense for 'the fix' and things that Jason&Mike's Co has not yet ruined for us. Like.. I have a freaking diy Saga in my drawer, bought just months before Schiit made its move, derp :D

        After I wrap up a couple projects I'm working on, I have decided that my DIY projects should look like they're DIY.

        The big exception is large floor standing speakers.

      Mid-fi phones and mid-fi recodrings can make some serious music with JL69. Half of my library is usable again.

        Apparently I can get similar tonality out of my EC2A3 if I roll in Sovteks. I can finally just leave the EML Mesh in for good for pristine recordings.

        Don't. Past 15", the woofers are more freakshow. It's not optimal in terms of mass, surrounds, magnets, etc.

        Did you not hear the hiss? I hear them even on HD800. Must be bad tubes or something

        No 'hiss', but when its pot is maxed it hums faintly with HD800. With more efficient things it's already annoying, but I don't need to crank it all the way. Hiss could easily be bad tube or lose/bad contact with tube base.
