        Why feel bad when you can't tell if the sound came from your house or was in the game? I can't tell you the number of times I've looked around my room because I couldn't tell if my room made the noise or if it was the game.

      Can't wait for the EST hype train for IEMs. (May already happened). At this point, I'd rather have goat testicles as IEM drivers.

        The problem with testicles is you only get 2 of them. We'd have to genetically engineer goats to grow like 16 testicles for the besetst iems

        Inexperienced worker, will get fired when finally caught. But that could take a while. You are lucky....... it got delivered. Just think of the "high value" packages that just got dumped somewhere in the US, that was sig required with no sig, or forged sig, we all pay for it in the end.

        I don't regret buying the Heresy, but it's quickly on its way to my "third desk" setup when I get another DAC for it. I think it's technically great at what it was designed to do, but I can't shake... something... about it.

        Taliban is a bigger and tougher enemy than what the west is willing to deal with. I say leave them for China maybe a conflict can spark something but again I think China is too pussy to invade another country let alone Afghanistan.

        Actually I just recalled an article I saw not that long ago that uses data to rank gridlock in Texas. In 2020 I35 through Austin displaced Houston’s I10 as the most congested road in the state. However Houston still had most of the rest of the top 10 with a few from Dallas mixed in.

        USPS is broken. Especially here in Chicago. 50% of time package will be marked as delivered, but not show up for a couple days or never. We have a Ring that records movement, so we know that the packages aren't getting stolen by passerbyes.

        USPS was great where I am up until the cuts last spring. I’ve also had bad experiences with throwing/breaking packages from FedEx and DHL. Fewest bad experiences with UPS, but also seems to be most expensive.

    Ears validate the measurements, not the other way. Well, sometimes the measurements keep us honest.
