        You dont even know how bad I want to hear one now :P

        One of the main things stopping me is that I currently only have a Jotunheim and I couldnt afford a Convert2 and a new amp to do it justice

        On Sony TOTL IEM, waiting for prices on Sony's "latest pieces of shit" to go down and stabilize before committing. Early adopters of Sony's "latest piece of shit" gear get raped. It isn't the 1970s anymore.

        Yeah the modular one was super warmth n smooth but humongous sounding. Def not worth it as a main DAC or $2500 for 2 channels but makes a cool color box. It tells that I was surprised the DAC parts did not have transformers

        Is the new Campfire IEM (I'm assuming Solaris) going out on loaner? I'd love to compare it to the RE2000 to see which manufacturer used better sounding gold tbh.

        Controlling or culling population is the best solution to save the earth. It's going to take decades if not a hundred years before solar, wind, and fusion can cost effectively generate power.

        Solar & wind can be cost-effective in some places, depending on geography & fiscal regime - but they can't scale like hydrocarbons. Fusion would be great.

        My friend in Pasadena currently has the Solaris. It's really good. Runs it with a Schiit Eitr, which he claims improves the sound. He played me some music with and without, and the Eitr seemed to have a positive effect. Might have been the power of suggestion though?

      Hey Marv, did you ever get around to a DEQ2496 writeup?

      Also I'm trying to figure out how transparent it really is (with minimal GEQ/PEQ only). I can't hear much if any difference vs bypass all. @Riotvan still hates it though. Interested what you think.

        I was using a V800 dac back then and it was AES. Can't remember if i tried bypass, i think compared between physical bypass and eq. Amp was modded BH Crack and HD800 with rugliner.

        You need to feed it with a digital source. If you use the analog input or internal DAC, then all bets are off. But with DEQ2496 in between a CD transport (or optical from FireTV) and Yggdrasil 2, I could not tell a difference. The DEQ was so good that I could tell the which one of my transports I was using or which connectors (SPDIF, AES, etc.)

        I'm using a cheap Pioneer player via TOSLINK. It makes no sense that different transports would have a "sound" with an optical link and reclocking DAC...

    There's no replacement for displacement: works for motors, and woofers too.
