      Simple proposal going forward into 2018. Everyone over 45 must post a recent (1 year or less) audiogram from an audiologist. So we can comp.

        I've always listened at low volumes and I noticed some low frequency loss in my right ear. Sad. Only 41.

        I'm almost 43 and I have a fall off at 12 KHz and tinnitus in my left ear. Thankfully I've never claimed golden ears. :-)

        Oh god no, I lock mine away and try to deny it. Really... it has become dire over the past couple of years.

      Friend just got his Magni 3 in. Can confirm it shipped with Floor Wart so he could get it before X-mas. Way to go Schiit! Once again #1.

        They even included a note explaining why you are getting this huge thing instead of the wall wart. Nice touch.

        Actually the whole egg nog thing goes back to the 1300’s. Some drink they made and then let ferment. Guess it was good as long as you didn’t die. Weird how word meanings change over time. Remember when bad meant good. So will “sounds like ass” someday mean outstanding sound? :)

      To follow up on Marv’s good CDP>Eitr. Listening to mid-fi speakers with CDP into Modi Multibit. Yup. >. But Eitr is a USB godsend.

        Unfortunately, in my rush to embrace digital, I sold off all of my CD's years ago. Committed to listening to ass for the forseeable future.

        @TomHP I spent years tracking down the CDs with the best mastering of my favorite albums, Tidal just uses what they are given. I like Tidal for new music though.

      Was going through my power amp tube collection. Found a NOS 1958 Hytron brown base JAN 5692. Got it as a spare over 10 years ago! Good day.

        Yeah. I was talking with my wife. I think it’s been closer to 15 years its been sitting there. I have it in the Horizon 3 right now. Took a while to warm up. DSOTM is sounding really good.

      Stupid mistake of the month. Thought I had a tube going bad last three days. Nope. Somehow the volume slider on Foobar2k got to 50%. Duh.

      Have the Klipsch HP-3 in house about an hour ago. Has anyone else noticed a touch of amplifier hum at the start of Layla on Clapton Unplgd?

        I wasn't sure if that's what was being referenced or not. I'd say there is a little more than a touch. Thanks for bringing Clapton to my attention.

        Cool, that's an album I have!
        Does it sound like one of those quiet air coolers? Also there at the start of Running on Faith I think. Bit more focused on the left channel, no?

        Heard of this. Friend had a hip replacement. No history other than family. He's very much into daily exercise. Anesthesiologist put it off due to Na levels. Hoping I can get the test TBH. Next podiatrist visit ask what cardio I can do that's safe for my tendon. Man thanks a lot. Really appreciate it.

        I have this same set, sitting in shrink wrap, waiting for my winter break when I can properly enjoy it with a glass of fine scotch, my now-tuned headphone rig, and my dogs napping nearby.

        Check Discogs. There may be other USA pressings from the mid 80's that were the same master. Lots of opinions about the "best". Only thing is EAC had a lot of error correction when I went to rip it. Disc is NM condition?? Weird. Anyone have any ideas on this?
