        I really hope the fight between them at 135 happens next. Whiney, slithery Dillashaw needs to lose his title.

        Dillashaw really needed to lose this. Dwayne Ludwig was full of crazy talk about him winning this and then moving up to 145 to fight Holloway. He would be crushed.

        Yeah, and as much as I dislike Dillashaw, I think he is being held back by his crew of delusional yes men. Otherwise, I don't even have a lot of optimism for Cejudo's long-term success at 135 (if flyweights are finished) much less TJ at 145.

      Anyone ever shipped a car (minivan) cross-country before? First timer here, appreciate any advice/referrals.

        Where are shipping to? I shipped both of our cars to SoCal and then back. Basically there are services online that are brokers and they take a 10-20% cut. If you book directly with a carrier service then it is cheaper. Many options with open/closed carriers etc.

        Shipping to WA from MA. Yeah, so far I've come across sites like transportreviews and that's setting my baseline. It'd be great to cut out the middleman - any carriers you'd recommend?

      Tony Molina is on to something with these 1-2 min. songs. Foremost, they're good; but brevity makes re-listening even more addictive.

        also appreciated McCarthy's "The Road" for how it poses the post-apocalyptic scenario of whether/how we'll trust each other, when the alternative is to devour one another. Seems like a fitting metaphor for pre-apocalyptic life as well.

      call me an audio-philistine but I think the HD650 pairs pretty well for my tastes with Lyr 3.

        Jotunheim is admittedly my only other major reference point. Otherwise, amazing mids, smooth+detailed highs, and good enough (occasionally muddy) bass. Using Sylvania 6SN7GTB tube.

      Gungnir Multibit + Lyr 3 (Russian 6N8S) + HD650 = Intoxicating. Dangerous too, haven't enjoyed my music this loud in a long time.

        First time I've ever experienced treble this smooth yet energetic from a headamp. Really conducive to air guitar and also a testament to the HD650's tonality being amazing at louder volume. Rarely ever bumped it like this with my Jot. Even just tried to as I have them side by side. Treble on Jot beyond 11 o'clock is congested, grainy, and occasionally piercing vs. Lyr3.

        I actually kind of botched my hearing a bit after my first couple of days with the Lyr 3. I was listening louder than I realized and suddenly everything sounded strange like it does after you've been to a loud concert. Be safe out there, folks!

      Q: What's your take on why electrostats are not more popular? Or how 'bout, why are you not into them as much as dynamics, planars, etc?

        It's quite easy to pick up an entire used Stax System for $300-$600 from Japan. SRM-212/252 or SRM-313 for SS, maybe SRM-T1 for tubes to drive the "Earspeakers", and a SR-202/207 or older Lambda of some kind.

        I'm only a few years into this hobby, so would y'all say Stax's popularity has grown since they were bought by Edifier in 2011? As mentioned, Stax offers relatively affordable, quality gear, but it seems like their marketing and distro (outside of Japan) either just sucks or (for whatever reason) is actually averse to growth.

      After 3 nor'easters in 2 weeks & multiple days without power/heat - my Gungnir Multibit was delivered today. Feels like a multibit Spring.
