    Schiit... Colon problems... Connection?

    If they have a production line, do they call it The Intestine?

    I love the mcspicy, grew up eating the stuff. Prefer crispy buttermilk chicken nowadays though.

    They call human meat “Long Pork.” Just sayin’….

    “It’s made of people….”

    Some local fare from Burger King this time:

    I forget what the cheese was called but obviously not something you’ll see in the US. It also has a sort of potato pancake and bacon. Potato, melted cheese and some kind of cured meat is popular this time of year, especially in the mountains.

    Saw this on a TV ad and thought, "Holy Schiit! McRib!"

    ... not :(

    The idea is the hash browns are supposed to represent gold coins. Chinese go crazy for wealth metaphors over the lunar new year holidays (it's all a bit distasteful, IMHO).

    If it was an actual McRib patty, I could order it without sauce and add my own BBQ sauce. But it looks like it's not worth the trouble. I probably haven't had one in around 30 years :(

    For a second it really raised my envy towards Taiwan, now I can just go to the fridge to get my leftover 12.9 CNY double cheeseburger + pineapple pie set.

    I don't there will be any McRib in our area. As Chinese people don't cook ribs that way, so the supply could be different. And since milk shake's gone long along, what can we expect?

    I don't know if this is the place but new Schiit Modi3E (click "select version"). And @Marvey got a mention on HF.

    Modi 3e should sound very good if Fulla e is any indication. Looking forward to a Modius-e.

    Well, Tyr is here.

    I applaud the amp, and the front standby switch. Well done.

    I am still waiting to see 12V remote turn on.

    Modi 3E is less crispy than the Fulla E. Will let you triangulate. Modi 3E is actually kind of mellow in the upper mids with a hint of crisp on the top end. Fulla E is just crispy, but not too annoyingly so, more like crispy good for gaming and computer use.


    That sucks. Taiwan gets the good McDonalds stuff. In the USA, we are left with the uncreative crap. Just waiting for China to demand that that "tw" in the URL get changed to "ct" for Chinese Taipei.

    Any comparisons of Modi3E with the ESS card for Jot2? The ESS card came out a while ago so not sure if the magic had been discovered back then. Not sure what differences in sound to expect between the 9028 and the 9018 chips.

    How is the Schiit Sabre vs the MOTU and Apogee Sabres?

    Fulla E is clean and crispy. Can be annoying with the wrong headphones, but without mid-treble peak is absolutely fine. I know lots of people really like the E because of this, it's also a departure from most other Schiit gear which tends to sound more rounded.

    Modi E sounds almost exactly like the MOTU, a nick better, but very similar tonally: https://www.superbestaudiofriends.o...3e-review-and-measurements.12091/#post-377327

    So it has the inner warmth that universalizes some distortion but does it have that fake MOTU bass punch?

    It has that too. Although I'm more convinced it's a ESS fake bass punch thing. I hear this on the lower end ESS chips.
