        As long as it costs you nothing more than you have already dropped. Time is my most abundant asset right now as I have no life, so whenever. But I am a tech dummy, so...

      Shit, I could just use my Sony Bluetooth IEMs on my laptop for audio and mic. So much better than just screaming into the laptop.

        Unfortunately Galaxy Buds mic (gen 1) sucks butts too, decided to stick with the laptop haha. Almost tempted to use phone but overheating is scary.

        Found out too late about the drunk meet, but I was dead asleep anyway. I'm afraid to ask what I missed lol.

      Not seeing the appeal of Airist RDAC > ZDT Jr > HD6xx. Too Warm from Amp and too Dark from DAC. HD600 is the better choice here folks.

        Nah, I was expecting it to be too much with the HD6xx. I have my own tastes like yours. I have the HD600s on right now, and this is a good match since it reduce any possible treble issues people have with the HD600.

        I like the HD600, Elex, HD800, etc. with that combo. HD6XX would need to be modded for less midbass for that chain to work IMO.

        @purr1n agreed. I had a feeling before hearing that the Darkness and Warmness was going to make me say meh on HD6XX. HD600 other hand was better. Here's a not too much of a shocker: Mangi 3+ with RDAC is more flexible with my stuff than ZDT Jr. 2D Stage yeah, but gotta like New Order with the JVCs with the chain.

      Got the Airist R2R RDAC, it isn't near a Bifrost 2 but it is more than enough for a computer/casual listening desk.

        @famish99 I'll need more time to really give you the data, but so far the treble region is dark like the color of the DAC. Black Frost 2 in treble is slightly warm but doesn't even pull things back like the Airist. If that make sense. I'll play more with it.

        get a 90s R2R. There's a list floating around out there somewhere with a list of what thousands of chips are used in different DACs. Search by PCM63.

        I think @YMO is just a bit casual about the dislikes, based on posts elsewhere. Don't think you should take it too personally, man, the recent situation in the world has got everyone a bit on edge.

        I don't get to drink lately cuz family all hate alcohol (sigh, definitely making up for that once I can get out again!), but I do hope you and YMO both take care of your livers :))

I can make another post that piss on everyone's favorite beer, but nah. IPAs are those who are losing their taste in things in general. You need to spice it so much to make it taste something. :P

    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. Try to keep this as a warmer tone setup which I dibble at times with darkness highs.

    Thinkpad X260 via Roon or Foobar2000-UPnP > Schiit Eitr > Massdrop x Airist R-2R DAC (RDAC) > Schiit Magni 3+

    Main Setup:

    Note: This is for serious album listening and being analytical on certain songs to compare mastering or understand song structure. I try to mostly keep this neutral with a minor warmish tilt, but currently more neutral is the THX AAA 789 and warm/thick is the ZDT Jr. Keep in mind I run both SS and Tube depending on the headphone, IEM, or want a different sound flavor.

    Roon or UPnP > PI2AES Coax Output or Pioneer DV-79AVi DVD Player (CD Transport) Toslink > Schiit Bifrost 2: XLR Outputs-THX AAA 789 / RCA Outputs-ZDT Jr

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

    Portable Setups:
    Sony ZX2 > Drop x JVC HA-FDX1 or oBravo Cupid
    Sony WM1A > Campfire Audio Andromeda (inside the house, normally)
    Phone > Sony WF-1000XM3 mostly with sometimes NuForce x Drop Move
