I feel sad going away from Sony Smartphones, but I can't deal with their TOTL pricing. Pre-Ordered Google Pixel 6....I'm an average user. Oct 24, 2021 at 6:17 PM

        Sounds fine, though I'm a little disappointed, given how much they hyped this phone up to be, esp on the video end.

        It seems to be the perfect middle ground phone for me. That's the only thing that I want, solid choice for the price.

        I was an Audirvana user until moving to M1 and issues with plugins crashed my Mac. The subscription fee for Audirvana pushed me to look at alternatives.

        Homelessness has virtually nothing to do with laziness. In addition what @Cspirou said, most cannot get or hold down a job due to addiction, mental health, physical health, criminal record, etc. Not to mention it’s hard to get a job without an alarm to wake up, a shower to clean up, or a phone to be reached for an interview. There are many, many reasons, the least of which is willingness to get a job.

        Yes, YMO, you are.

        And the fact that there /are/ beggars who do quite well out of it is no basis to punish the rest.

        Here, there are families/gangs of beggars. Yes, it is a job, and a pretty lousy one. Which is why I do give them what, to me, is a tiny amount of money.

        @Stuff Jones: last year, I sent them detailed measurements and comments on how the FW1800 could be re-tuned to sound closer to the FDX1, while leaving the nice wood timbre intact:

        https://i.imgur.com/SQhPy85.jpeg

        I never heard back from them though. And I don't know how the FWX1 compares to the original FW1800.

        @james444, I reviewed your screencap. With my ears, the subbass/midbass is more than a FDX1 Green Filter that is on my desk (I still found FDX1 to have leaner bass). However, subbass/midbass isn't even close to a stock FX1800 if going by the graph.....

        ....I hate ultra boosted bass IEMs that is overbearing, and the FWX1 to me isn't even close to that limit. However, FWX1 is downward sloping starting at around 4k/5k (not what you wish for), but can get the shout like the FDX1 if you push the vol control HARD. It's an acquired taste, which is something I'll be referencing since the wood timbre benefits are here.

        very typical of smartpost (and UPS surepost). I've had FedEx/UPS go past my city multiple times before it makes it to USPS... who then sits on it for a few days because I'm guessing they view these combined delivery services as low priority.

        I avoid those services like the plague
