Smells like sausages, Male, 36, from Rapallo, Italy

Months later, Aficionado startup whine is still eerie. Would make a good horror movie intro, so unsettling xD Oct 17, 2018 at 8:51 AM

        I'm on EML Solid and it's still pretty high on the Japanese ambient horror movie scale of creepy.

        NOS Marconi or RCAs had some startup squeal, Sylvania dual mono plates have much less. AVVT mesh 2A3 silent at start up.

      Decided to finally try Ori Suede pads on the Atticus. Can confirm, this is very, VERY good.

        @rlow right. Saga has 2 pairs of SE outs so each Vidar gets 2 left or 2 right, split for tweeter and woofer. Cheaper than good trasformers, and cheaper than running Freya at night playing ambient music while I sleep :P

        Hmm ok. So one channel to the woofer and the other channel to the tweeter. Seems like a bit of a waste since tweeters don’t need that much power, so not sure you’ll get the full benefit of dual Vidars. But it will still sound fantastic if my single Vidar running them is any indication. Enjoy!

      TR-X00 arrived. Cable has weirdo Not-Invented-Here plugs and is microphonic like you're wearing a stethoscope, to the point of unusability.

        Holy crap, I didn't even know about the TR-90 before now. That's a bit confusing.

        First thing that came to mind was the Fostex TH500RP, which looks like the basic TH body, save that it's open-backed with planar drivers. I guess the ___RP designation is for planars (e.g. the above or T50RP), while TH-___ is for... no idea. The TH line has had detachable cables before in the 900 mk2 and 610. TR for "removable"?

        Massdrop TR-X00 and TH-X00 only differ in the removable cables. And the connection is inverted polarity from the HD6XX cable, with deeper insertion (shallower shoulders). Use the Furutech FT-2PS-F (note the F) connector if you can find them. Otherwise the normal FT-2PS(R) can be filed down to fit properly.

      Just picked up my Abarth 124. It has several very small, oddly shaped, undocumented thing holders on the interior.

        @zerodeefex presumably they're designed to hold specific object types but me and the dealer spent a good 15m trying to figure out what and failed. So, thing holders.

        I couldn't find a sufficiently quiet online unit, so I'm using a semipro line-interactive with a regulator/filter after. No noise unless the power fails.

      Low-temperature Stirling engines are awesome desk toys when you have a convenient heat source such as Yaggy :3

        Awesome idea! Which one do you have? Do you think a Gumby would be warm enough? Not sure how much heat Yaggy puts out.

        @westermac one from strlingengine.co.uk on the expensive side, but they're made precisely enough to run on body heat; 15c temp difference is enough. I have a cheap one but it couldn't quite run all the time.
