Grumpiest admin, Male
Look at this thief @jexby stealing my BF2: https://imgur.com/6x7XlS1
I'll refund you your full payment @jexby
Whatever happens, the cat will have the last laugh. They always do.
I hope each and every one of you and your loved ones are safe and well.
I can report thankfully that the SBAF India community and family is doing well and actually trading equipment despite no interstate courier services. Trust all of you are doing great.
Very kind sentiment, thank you! All well here & I echo the wish. Who the hell every called you grumpy anyway?
Thanks @zerodeefex, it's getting real here now, as I'm sure it is all over. Wishing all of you and yours health and safety.
Have to admit, I've switched teams and I'm officially TEAM DOG now. All the cat people are wrong.
Welcome to the dog side!
To be clear: I have the sweetest cat in the world. He comes when called, he's waiting when we get home, and he's super affectionate. Still team dog here. Our dog will fight a fucking bear to protect her family.
Raccoon or bust!
@Boops let's collab on ORFAS shirts.
I'm down. PM me and we can set up time to chat.
I hope you're all having an awesome holiday full of love and fun.
Unsubscribed from rockna thread. I'm too poor for that.

"the sound you ever expected."
I can't afford the marketing baloney.
... Just saw the thread.
Sure, looks good. I suppose there have been car-buying occasions in my life when, hey, I might have bought some hifi instead. Never happened.
If you've PMed me in the last year I probably haven't replied. I probably harbor more positivity toward you than you expect.

i just want to be extra sure is all so i gave you a dislike
I literally just spit my coffee on that one. Nice one @Hands hahaha
This is a thing?
What dumb sack at Shure thought they should release a BT MMCX dongle that: SUPPORTS APTX HD & not LDAC?!?! Is MicroUSB in 2019?
Apparently, BT headphone manufacturers still don't give a damn. I think it'll be a while before we have audiophile grade BT stuffs... if even.
JVC FD-X1 is the real deal. Been listening all evening and enjoying them out of a phone.
Back in my day, bass went 'blub blub blub'. Still super happy with FD01, but it's awesome that the @james444 mod will now get in more peoples ears. It's such a great headphone.
No one noticed asgard 3 yet?
Oh my Schiit that... looks very not bad.
Between that and Unison Bifrost my sense of inner peace is contingent on my blocking Schiit's site, lol.
Chapter on Head-Fi re: Asgard 3 is pretty great. I like the direction Schiit is going with tuning their amps.
@rtaylor76 you can buy the phono module separately, just not available as a preconfigured option like the DAC cards (according to Jason).
@roscoeiii is banned for 5 weeks. The amount of time he went over a normal loaner. Also, when he's back, he's permabanned from all loaners.
I hope he's got really good impressions.
I never understood why ODAC never turned into dork slang for "O, damn." Like: "ODAC, check out the tubes on that amp."
Because people have shame.
Also I'm very disappointed with myself because I'm normally the one coming up with horrifically bad jokes like that. Dammit.
I'm prepared to say some shameful shit if it gets me an eargasm.
What’s the new hotness in plate amps in the 100-250w @ 4 ohm range? I am looking at the pwr-ice 125 but they don’t show real displacement
Needs to be no larger than 10.5" on any side. The minidsp offerings look the most interesting. Going to pair with either an old elemental designs 8 or 12.
This guy has both the pwr-ice 125 and 250 in pairs for really nice prices considering he includes the boxes for external use: https://www.ebay.com/sch/senor.grosso/m.html?item=183874282948&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562
damn, I'm tempted. I don't need two!
@JK47 still rocking the T900a? Curious how satisfied you are after having used the T500a mkii.
Never purchased the T900A, but did a direct A/B with @Jh4db536 when he brought his set to my place.
Last paragraph https://tinyurl.com/y3zgcm9p and what I have now https://tinyurl.com/y5sozf78
I would literally harvest pennies and sell them as copper to save and skip the T900A and get the T500mkII's.
Too many other outdoor hobbies eating into my earnings right now to spend on the T500mkII. Surf fishing, motorcycles, camping gear... But one day I WILL buy the T500mkII again...
Sound united bought onkyo's home audio group. Pioneer/elite/only/Integra are now joining Denon/Marantz
With Oppo ceasing audio operations just kind of shows how tricky the market has become. Hard to say if SU didn't buy Onkyo's audio stuff, would they have had enough money to continue on or would have closed up like Oppo/been sold to different buyers.
With all those brands under the same corporate umbrella, I'll probably just stick with the higher end Yamaha stuff for home theater. I've found it to be in general more reliable with a better UI. I own Marantz now, and have been underwhelmed.
How long until Sound United buys out the Yamaha home theater side. SU will swallow up every receiver brand!
Wonder for us, who works with SU with Denon/Marantz if the Onkyo/Pioneer umbrella extends to us or they will want to keep it in big box stores. Sony makes us order a certain amount of their receivers for our quota every quarter.
Google values the $150 iPhone SE I have at $256 if I trade it in for a pixel 3a XL. How much can I sell my Pixel 2 XL for?
Google has almost enough cash on hand to match Ukraine's entire GDP, and routinely shrugs off fines which would bankrupt entire companies (and third world nations). It's no wonder why they can scale anything if they really want to haha.
How much would Google pay for you 2XL in trade? eBay might do well by you selling that Apple phone...
There’s no world in which I can get more than $250 for an iPhone SE locked to sprint. Hah.
Just a friendly reminder: if you ship a loaner via USPS I will ban you. Seniority MIGHT be taken into account with regard to ban length.
Plus, it takes a binding U.N. resolution, an act of Congress, a declaration of war including lists of grievances, AND the Postmaster's authorization to pay the claim out. He/She is a federal employee, so good luck getting them off their ass to sign the check. So, yeah, fuck the USPS.
... not that I've experienced this, or anything...
This makes me feel good about not even being in US.
Oh wait, India Post.
(Frankly, nothing like its reputation years ago. Much improved)
Wtf is the @restrav3 @Victor beef?
Quarter pounder with cheese is too beefy for him
So my question is... do they have any steak in it?
this is why the ignore button was invented, been ignoring one of them for many moons.
Going to be ban happy for a bit.
This is definitely the asylum.
