I can't believe I'm saying this, but I just divorced my HD600 for the HD6XX. The 6XX/650 love is real. Aug 3, 2020 at 8:05 PM

        6xx and sw51+ is perfect blend of smooth/laid back but still dynamics and not slow. Throw modius in for a bit of gruntiness

        Yes, my boss after the video call message me with her apologizes. She was pretty embarrassed about it. People on different teams hit me up about it saying WTF with my boss. I know things happen and all, but be respectful when your SO WFH.

        One of mine threw up on the sofa. Nothing bad, just over-eaten cat food and a bit of fur. But still, wife found it before I did (no, not by sitting in it: cats and I would be dead)

        Was able to just throw cover in washing machine

        Through my church I have ties to Ukraine and the Ukrainian ex-pat population here in the U.S. The fact is that eastern european culture has a strong racist and anti-semitic thread through it. Their culture being behind the iron curtain did not go through the revolutionary 60's like ours did.

        They are probably where we were at in the early sixties...racism is just "normal" for many, but is very rapidly being challenged and put in its place. Unfortunately, cultureal change is hard and many get left behind...

        I was musing on the words "bipolar disorder," but it looks like I was overthinking it, and should have stopped at "arsehole."

        When I read his first post, I wondered whether to think "Fuck off or pay for advertising," or "I like this guy, what he is doing, and how he is doing it." Seems I made the wrong decision there. I'm sad about that.

        Fair enough but it depends on your pov. The analogy in my head is if you pick the right distro and hardware like picking the right amp and dac you can get some truly great results. If you know what you're doing you don't have to spend much but it will scale like mad. Think supercomputers etc.

        Nowadays if you install Fedora it will work out of the box on most and even new hardware. Like you can plug 6xx's into a cheap amp and source and still get acceptable results.

        @YMO, "Mac is like an overpriced Fisher Price product. "
        I was subtly praising Linux against Windows: Absolutely not Mac.
        @Hands, My late-start computer days began with Unix; I loved it at first sight; I hated MS at first site.

        My early attempts with Red Hat, however, were a non starter. So, sadly, I left Linux alone for years.

    Boring Back Office Banker dude, woo.

    Computer Desktop Setup:

    Note: This is for casual listening while on the computer, and when I Work From Home (WFH). So listening to random songs, 12 inch collections and also not really focusing on the album. Darker DAC being fed into a mostly neturalish amp.

    Thinkpad X260 via Roon or Foobar2000-UPnP > Schiit Eitr > Massdrop x Airist R-2R DAC (RDAC) > Zampotech SW51+

    Main Setup:

    Note: This is for serious album listening and being analytical on certain songs to compare mastering or understand song structure. Two separate amps for two different sound flavors/methods.

    Roon or UPnP > PI2AES [Coax Output] or Pioneer DV-79AVi DVD Player (CD Transport) [Toslink Output] > Schiit Bifrost 2 > DNA Starlett

    Headphones and IEMs: Senn HD600, Senn HD6xx, Campfire Audio Andromeda, NuForce x Drop Move, oBravo Cupid, Drop x JVC HA-FDX1, Sony WF-1000XM3, ZMF Auteur

    Portable Setups:
    Sony ZX2 > Drop x JVC HA-FDX1 or oBravo Cupid
    Sony WM1A > Drop x JVC HA-FDX1
    Phone > Sony WF-1000XM3 mostly with sometimes NuForce x Drop Move
