      Guess I left it too long between quarantine starts, car battery's dead. Hopefully amazon is fast with the booster pack.

        Some people go out there and start the car once a week. Even drive around the block. Loose! Not enough to replace the juice it took to start the thing.

        I've left a car 6 months while out of the country, and I'm sure much much more is possible. Unless, of course, you have gadgets aboard, all slowly draining. Or the battery was a bit old to start with.

      Headphone modders, what's the most deadening adhesive foam? Need it for a keyboard case, to go on top of dynamat.

        fairly dense neoprene is pretty much acoustically impenetrable and quite durable. like the kind of foam you'd use to make a cosplay sword

        Cool, thanks! I found a listing on amazon Italy that sells sheets in 1,2,3,5 & 10mm thickness, so I'll apply dynamat and then as appropriate order to fill the space.

        Probably best to not completely fill any cavities and instead surround them on all sides to absorb.

        @Vtory what do you use matlab for? Usually REW is enough, but you need to know what you're doing.

        @Hrodulf Wanted to find optimal positioning, phasing, and leveling -- based on measured individual components and inferred gear/room parameters with aid of numerical approximation and optimization. Idea borrowed from Dr Earl Geddes.

        No reason to adhere matlab. Any good linear solvers with matrices can do that. I'd use python and numpy/scipy if I do it again in 2020.

        @Vtory interesting! I've got pretty decent results from REW or SMAART, if more advanced integration is needed. Is Geddes approach applicable to non-rectangular rooms?

        That's too horrible to contemplate! but then, so is most fractal wrongness.

        To do this, then, we really need three, not two, dimensions. We take the emoji based on Munch's painting, make it double-sided, and place it between two almost-parallel mirrors.

        Last week the ambassador complained that the Chinese Community in Milan is viewed badly by the locals.

        But when they had a 48hr shootout in the streets they wanted us to just let it ride.

        The British Guardian newspaper's restaurant critic, this week, is begging people to go to their local Chinese restaurants again. Business has fallen through the floor, because, hey, Chinese people are dangerous. British people are stupid. And yes, I am one.

        @Thad E Ginathom the thing is, it's probably Chinese people who are staying away from the restaurants. Listening to my family back in Australia, the Chinese communities are freaking out way more than anyone else (maybe memories of SARS), avoiding their usual social and retail areas.

        Oh the XLR out sounds better.

        Its not world changing but it is noticeable, as soon as Bifrost 2 freed up the trafos I briefly compared SE to converted XLR and was sold.

        I'm just dragging my feet because its yet more expense, I'm not much of a gear cycler and I'd like to be done with the core setup.

        Yep xlrs and trannies into a lyr3 with clear was like i got a much higher tier amp. But my speakers have prio cause they still sound much better. For a moment i was considering a T4 but i guess a switch box is a better and cost effective solution. But as you said to keep poring money into this hobby can get tiring, something to be said for just enjoying music and forgetting about gear.

        In Hawaii we call those Okinawan sweet potatoes. Taro is used in the making of poi.

        Besides taro, might be ube? It's a root crop people hereabouts often use in sweet desserts.

        Alternatively there actually are purple potatoes, the change in pigment owing to high concentrations of anthocyanin (googled it, idk about crops). Not sure if these'd be any sweeter than regular taters though.
