        Dr. John Young presented at our AES section a few years back. Many of our members utilized his services until he moved to Western Washington University where he teaches audiology. Anyone trained by him might be very good.

      LF Thunderbolt 3 dock with >= 130W of power delivery through TB3 port. Any suggestions?
      1. Torq

        Pretty sure that TB3 *ports* are limited to 100 W of power delivery. Docks can supply more than that for graphics cards, etc, but not over the cable.

        Hmm. The Dell TB16-240W quotes up to 130w over their cable for their laptops. Other TB/ USB devices are stated at 60w. Was wondering if there were any others up there. I’ll probably just do a two cable solution if I run into issues.

        That’s because Dell are leveraging the “vendor specific alternate power modes” part of the USB-C PD spec (rather than it being something Thunderbolt 3 specific). That 130w is only available using a specific cable and into devices that specifically support Dell’s alternate power mode (likely just a subset of their own laptops).

        Three questions to ask about any political candidate: 1) Is X competent? = Can X do the job well? 2) Can X win? 3) Is X ethical? I seldom get to asking whether the person agrees with me.

      ...however, the 64 Audio U12t is really nice for an IEM. The price is stupid silly though.

        There are some impressive technicalities, but the FR is screwed. Very metallic harmonics on vocals. Recessed fundamentals on vocals. Awkwardly boosted bass, nice impact, but not very linear not cohesive.

        How are the ergonomics? I haven’t tried anything from 64 Audio, but next to the currrent gen universal ‘CIEMs’ like PP8, the shells look whack.

        They’re weird, but comfortable. I would rank them low in security, so no running with them.

        I thought the trios were better balanced than the fourte, but something about the sound was too diffuse and not focused enough. I don't know about technicalities but i have a feeling the pp8 will come out ahead.

        Some say that breasts were invented in Colombia.

        Also, I once asked a Colombian patient what he missed most about his country. He said the cocaine was "very fresh" there. So, yeah, more organic, free range drugs...

        Very interested in that! The LDAC is the key feature of interest to me. I really dig the M1's form factor, so basically a better M1 with LDAC (and Andros with MUC-M2BT1) is super interesting to me.

        Like any company, both have hits and both have misses. MoFi has been around a lot longer and releases way more material than AP does, so they have more potential for misses.

        That being said, the MoFi CD of U2’s War is offensively bad.
