        Do they refine and filter the oil from the rarest of snakes, or is it the B grade garden snake variety stuff?

        If you replace the tubes with NOS GE tubes, it's only going to run you $320. Cheap!

      What do you think makes the best, most skin like, coupling material for a measurement rig (other than a full (expensive) dummy head)?

        Everyone thought they were going to die in a nuclear war. Wrestling was popular. The president was a famous guy. There were tensions in the Middle East. There was no internet.

        Of course, I had to leave countless albums off of the list. The way I look at it, that would be the case no matter how one approaches it. We are cutting it down to 10 titles, after all.

        When in doubt, say yes to new friends and new experiences. Make time to study, for sure, but make it as focused as possible. If you are half-distracted in your dorm room then it will take forever. I would go to the library and just knock it out. It wasn't a "fun" place to be so I had a sense of purpose being there - finish this so I can go home.

        Also, sleep is massively underrated - worth it to stay up late and go to a cool show or party if you don't have anything important. But don't stay up late on the internet or playing video games for the hell of it. You'll find you feel better, are more focused, and thus end up with more free time to have fun or hang out with friends. All-nighters should not be necessary if you manage your time well.

        I have a similar issue, the MMCX connector on the left is really wiggly (i mean the female side thats fixed inside the housing). They came like this on Day 1 and have just gotten worse with use. Plan to send them back for a fix after I'm done working on my thesis

      Campfire Audio Orion are quite nice. But I should have listened to @shotgunshane , they are a bit to trebly for my tastes. Great stil though

        too trebly could maybe be remedied. talk to @Bill-P in the event that any Andromeda mods help Orion. A couple ideas include: different tips (try the noble audio silicon), different cable (try all copper litz instead of SPC), and maybe a filter (refer to bill haha)

        interesting that you find them too trebly. perhaps you should give them more time (they're definitely brighter than your 650/TH-X00) or try a different source? Swapping tips will help too, try the spiral dot M, it adds some soundstage and the bass improves a bit as well

      How low is too low on a pot for issues? I usually listen with my Valhalla 2 on low gain into hd650 at no more than about 8-10 oclock.

        When you're down to your last bud then you should consider resupplying imo. Unless you're in a legal state, cuz being too low on pot isn't much of an issue there

        @SSL i don't think my music is the issue. All my music seems to be at about the same volume, other than classical. And it's mostly classic rock and prog rock, not known for bad mastering. I'll have to test more when Valhalla comes back
