        I can objectively say you should not spend 12k on a Chord Dave. :P

        Well, I mean, if you pay retail for a DAVE you are a potato. However, yes you are still a dork regardless, but not in a bad way. I *loved* my DAVE whilst I owned it, and if I could still own one I would. Priorities within my set up made me go a different route, but, I still miss the DAVE :)

        I don't put on long pants until the temp drops below -2 deg C. Grill in the winter, even snow, in shorts.

        If you have Amazon Prime, they are giving a free year of the online subscription service. You just have to sign up for a Twitch Prime account (free with Amazon).

      Getting sad, I might get rid of most of my cans and do more IEMS/DAPs. I blame traveling. Also, it's what's I been doing more lately.

        I use my Future Sonics MG5HX even more than I use my Sennheiser HD650. If they were slightly more comfortable to have shoved in my ears I'd probably use them all the time.

        To clarify : They're not uncomfortable at all. They are customs so they fit perfectly. I just don't like having any IEM stuck in my ear for more than an hour or so at a time.

        Selection is a big part of why I use mostly spotify to find music and then bandcamp to purchase what I want hi-res or physical media.

        Not wrong. LA feels a lot like Houston to me. Although urban sprawl isn't as bad here

        My wife and I cut cable TV about 3 years ago, we only have cable internet. We upgraded to the Shield TV 2 years ago from a Fire TV and the Shield is miles ahead of the Fire TV in every way. Its very easy to "cut the cord" with the Shield. It's overpowered as a streamer and its very good with game streaming or local emulations.

        I currently have a PS4 in the living room. It does most of the streaming duties. However, I do find the interface to be "chunky," since well it's a video game console. Sega Saturn emulation is tempting.

        It has been impeccable as a streamer via apps and from my NAS. I can't wait to try it as a game streamer so I can play emulated 4K Breath of the Wild on my 65"
