TIL FedEx's final cost is on average 20% higher than the estimate. UPS is 10% lower, and USPS's price is firm. My FedEx ended up 50% more. May 13, 2018

        In my area, FedEx is by far the most dependable and easier to work with carrier. Followed by USPS, followed by UPS. I'll pay the extra bit to make sure my package isn't lost, crushed, or otherwise a pain in my ass.

        Yeah, service varies by area. FedEx and UPS are generally reliable in my area, but USPS sucks especially if I miss a package. The unreliable estimates really bug me though. Going from $70 estimate to $108 is kind of ridiculous.

        The A2s are literally computer speakers, but they do sound okay as long as you're not looking for deep bass or loud volumes. Good enough for casual background music in the office. PEQ can help a lot with cleaning up the sound.

        On Hooncake's note: how do you think PC > Fulla 2 > LSR305 would pair? I have the JBLs on the way, thinking about a volume control for them.

        that was my chain. I couldnt get over the "hi-fi" sound of it. Treble bothered me, bass impact was too much, if you do the -3db for both treble and bass it is better but, I still got listening fatigue and furthermore its freaking too big for desktop usage. I returned it and miss my OSMT ever since which I sold.

        Let us know what you think. Some say it's the same as a HD569, which made Tyll' WoF, except for pads. I'm curious at it's price.

        I will evenually start a dedicated thread to consolidate info and signal level as there are a few interested in these already.

        BTW I will soon get dedicated grills after I bugged Ze'ev for the past 6 months and helped with a concept plan. They look great!

        @A1Gear - Image tagging is a hard problem. Google did it with crowdsourcing at first but now they implement deep learning algorithms. Maybe there's an API that can be applied to the site.

        Head units are easy. Speakers can be a pain in the ass though and you're exceeding the cost of the Riva plus velcro.

        My headunit made all the difference. In my 2006 Toyota Rav4, the sound was terrible. Replaced head unit with a $100 pioneer one, sounds much better, and I get Bluetooth.

      Ah, I see! I haven't used the Fulla 2 in that role since I don't have powered monitors on my desk at work. Great little dac/amp combo though-
      1. thegunner100

        Agreed. I just got my Fulla 2 yesterday and I've been using it at work as a dac/preamp with my Pixel for the Audioengine A2s. Having a physical volume knob is so nice :D

      Soylent Coffiest - Slightly chocolately taste with dark coffee aftertaste. It's alright but I prefer regular 2.0 + pour-over coffee.

        OG 2.0 reminds me slightly of graham crackers. I like it but I get Coffiest for the 2 in 1 benefit, never tried adding coffee to 2.0, might need to give it a try.

        Oh, I meant that I drink 2.0 and coffee (~8oz) separately. I feel like Caffeine is more effective that way too. The 150mg in Coffiest works but it doesn't give me a jolt like coffee does.

        I have the two new flavors coming in tomorrow, so I will report on that!
