Geshelli support/service is pretty good. Communication is very responsive, and kindly offer some perks I've never experienced elsewhere. May 6, 2021 at 12:09 PM

        Highly recommended. 2541 really feels like a cayman gt in the dac realm. Responsive, coming with its own cool style, super fun, day to day usable (compatible with crap tracks).

        I'm waiting for a Bifrost 2 as well. Not sure that I consider In Stock and Ships in 7 to 10 Days to be synonymous but it is what it is.

        > 22 kHz band is lossy (so not audible band). If the track is encoded without dsp tricks, Mqa is a 13 bit encoding that should be transparent...

      Dac2541 first impression: Modiub-frost2. Immediately blown away. Sounds like a no brainer bliss for hybridists.

        Now if Soekris can just ship units to Modhouse, one can be on its way to me!

        I remember quite liking the sound from the 1421 loaner, so looking forward to this one quite a bit. Haven't heard a Bifrost 2.

        @atomicbob : Thanks, that looks like an awesome tip to check out!

        @Syzygy : I was in that loaner tour and liked 1421, too. I could remain sane. Similar with the 1541 audition occured months later. This time around, perfection seems to be obtained with much higher maturity, which is driving me crazy. Oh well.

        One could complain that the 1541 lacked that final couple percent that pushes it into "magic." The 2541 shows no such deficiency.

        Feel your pain... on account of moving to a new home last year. Great fit for my family, but unlike the old house, there's no room where I can listen to 2ch without waking up the kids. Thus my 2ch went from almost daily use down to once a week. Unexpectedly pushed me back to majority headphone listening... which is all good, but not as good.

      A mysterious loaner pair of estat I'm testing now measures so bad in fr (and comes with most stax drawbacks), but sounds too tasteful.

        More to come soon. But verite-like dimensionality, stax-like delicacy, and cleverly nuanced vocal presentation all create too much synergy to put them off. Heck.

        Stax are one of those things that showed me that a weird FR can still sound really good.

        I think they also make up for shortcomings with very low distortion

        That's just because CDs are dying, and streaming revenue is low. Vinyl is still super niche. I mean, the number one album in vinyl was Fleetwood Mac. That's not exactly a top 40 smash hit album in 2020.

        This doesn’t disprove your point about vinyl being niche, but Fleetwood Mac got a significant bump in interest across the board this year because of that guy dogface on tik tok.

        Cinematic experience of the main scenario was great, however I could be easily and happily distracted by lots of puzzles (not a hardcore puzzle lover btw). The game really nailed in balancing funs from these two aspects. Engagement damn well maintained for the entire hours I spent.

        It too much reminded me of the Uncharted played quite a few years ago though.

        Lala's character also successfully re-defined imo (wasn't a big fan of the original series). The plot in this work seems rather a characterization than a progression though. Nevertheless, Lala's transformation (young archeologist to mass destroying fighter) felt impressively cohesive between plots and in-game ability progress.

        Yeah.

        Zen signature (not non-signature which is leagues below) had less dark presentation, a little crispier attacks, and tad more delineation not losing BF2's beauties much, which all synergize with musical contexts I listen to mostly.

        Actually subtle delta. Not enough for me to deal with drop.com hassles.

        I heard about this. nVidia was quite quick to walk it back, but it does set a very worrying precedent.

        What makes this weirder is that none of the claims they made in the email are actually remotely true.

        When I learned to read, I learned whole words; not the "phonics" method. So I occasionally substitute words when I'm tired. I remember reading "Oculists are prosperous" as "Ocultists are preposterous."

        As I started to loose high-frequency hearing, I increasingly misheard stuff (it starts with confusing the hard consonants, p/b, d/t and so on). Some of the ridiculous things I thought I heard were genuine mishearing, but my brain soon got in the habit of "preposturising" stuff, which made me laugh, but soon bored my friends...
