      Been listening to my rig most of the day. Interesting to hear how the Gungnir Multibit subtly changes as it warms back up.

        I haven't a clue what happened today. I just arrived. Missed it all.

        Probably no bad thing.

      Never made it to work. Listening to some of the 60 disc set of RCA Living Stereo albums I got earlier this week. Amazing stuff.

        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.

        @Cryptowolf I think you have the perfect plan to enjoy some wonderfully played and recorded music. Daphnis Et Chole is fantastic. IMHO.

      Need to go to work to finish something. Must take headphones off. Struggling to do so. Cloudy and rainy. Good day to stay in.

      After all these years, I still enjoy Black Sabbath. But you can’t listen at whimpy levels. Can you say that? Whimpy? Sure you can.

      1983 Japanese CD pressing of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. Very nice. Seen That Movie Too. DR 16! It really does go that high! Holy shit!

        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?

        Seems a bit wider. Instruments on live jazz seem more realistic. Still getting used to the new presentation.

        The Modi Multibit is awesomesauce, arguably all other DACs (including Schiit) are too expensive and money is better spent elsewhere in your chain (for most people). Says the recovering Yggaholic and current Pavane owner.

        Yes. I have the Gungnir Multibit, and honestly sometimes I prefer the Modi Multibit on certain albums. Just sounds better. Oh these 1st world problems! :)

      I am listening to Tangerine Dream's album Alpha Centauri, 1971. Was a favorite then. Chemicals must have been involved. Too sober I guess.

        How true. Or a certain mind set. Still love Pink Floyd. But not every album every day. I'll try again some other day.

        UFO and Rainbow don't work anymore. Heard Rush, Cygnus X-1 on the radio, that was rough.

      Finally heard the Garage 1217 Horizon III with an excellent LPS. Should be on HD800 amp list for sure.

        FWIW, that LPS is pretty much the best you can get. They were close to $1000 when they were current and the measurements are insane. You're extracting the best the Horizon has to offer.

      Anybody know what the deal is with Audeze no longer offering the Vegan Pads? It's still an option on the LCD's but not in the accessories.

        Put in a call to one of their dealers. There are going to call Audeze. I expressed my displeasure with Audeze's typical crapola.

        I forgot about Peer Gynt (Suite anyway). I used to like it when I was a little kid. I'd like to hear it again. (I'm not a big classical music listener. But sometimes it just hits the spot.) Glad you bought it up, Ringingears!

        Seems a lot of us were introduced as kids, including my friend. I had him listen to the Paavo Jarvi version. It didn't do it for him. So I am trying to see if there is another version out there. Thanks.

      Up at Lake Tahoe for a wedding. Took the GO 450. After Modi Multibit and now Gungnir Multibit, I ordered an inverter so I can take the Modi 2 MB next time.
