      damn. Tom Petty Wildflowers is pretty fucking epic. Haven't listened to it in probably 20 years.

        It's kind of amazing how 20 years of life experience changes one's perception of such a "simple" album. gosh darn, makes me feel old, perhaps in a good way. Tom Petty was a mystic.

        I saw Tom on the Wildflowers tour. One of the best concerts I've ever been to.

        Most dual clutch cars don't need any special exhaust modifications to drop farts, tho. Just matt the gas and rip shifts at redline and you'll get something from wet fart to full on gunshot, depending on how fast the trans is programmed to shift, and at what torque the clutch clamps to.

        I still have a Vali as a backup amp. Maybe not a bad idea to listen to it again after the initial ringing.

      All this BWC talk is making me more seriously consider a Spatial M3/5 clone: Eminence Deltalite 2515s + Peerless Corundum 1-1/8" tweeters.

        I've seen a couple modeled sims (nothing built yet) running them down to 1500, so I'd probably start there. I *think* I recall Clayton saying they're crossed "below 2kHz" at Cap Audio Fest.

        If you’re talking about the M3/5 Sapphires, the ones he uses (which I believe may be a custom version) are crossed down at like 575Hz!

        OK now i'm just blabbering to myself, but needle drop on ODESZA Summer's Gone LP is kinda fucking nuts because the ONLY version available digitally is MP3 - this shit sounds sooo good after only listening to turdfergusson MP3. if this is close to how good they sound at their live shows, no wonder folks go apeshit.

        Why don't you simply press ignore button? That makes life easier than to enforce someone to visit audiologists. (and in fact I thought I had to check my plan coverage for audiologists)

        Face tweeter and big soundstage is exciting. the last thing i want to do when listening to headphones is be bored out of my mind - I listen to headphones actively, not a sit back and relax sort of thing. Which is why I don't like the HD600, completely unengaging IMO. HD700/HD820 are max face tweeter I can handle [hd800 was too much - had to sell]

        Should probably revise to “vinyl: more engaging. Digital: more immersive” unless you want to be specific in both sides of this comparison hahah

        In my case the local audio people are either proper 2ch folk or into IEMs— the desktop contingent is relatively underrepresented, as is a great many products I'm still curious about.

        Oh, and SBAF often offers nicer deals than I'd get there even accounting for shipping around the globe.

        I thought you were kidding at first...coin shortage??!? Why?? Is the US Mint not producing them, or are banks not accepting/processing them, or has the cash based economy slowed down enough that they are just not circulating fast enough??
