      Might I recommend "Reality Checkpoint" and "Tough Guys Don't Dance" on that label, two of their all-time classics? (I have an awful lot of Hospital releases)

      Forza Horizon series has THE best racing soundtracks in a videogame. Hospital Records is fantastic!

    Whoa just listened to John Mellencamp's new track. Sounds like he's trying to remake himself as Tom Waits.

    Lashed up a little MPD box with an old Raspberry Pi and a Fulla 2 banded on top, to feed a non-critical speaker system. It's v. cute!

      I understand people are upset, but don't let other people or external events control you or how you feel. Just be good. No better time for this.

    When Sony put their collective mind to something, they really can knock it out of the park. Shame they don't do it all the time.

      My main speakers are Sony SS-A5's, which was their 80's effort to do a real speaker.

      I have a feeling that Sony makes good hardware, but their software portion in comparison is always a bit lacking.

    Every time I hear an Iggy Pop song on a TV commercial, I feel "good for him" - $$$. (It is CVS at the moment.)

      I'm just amazed he's still alive and has functioning braincells, given all he's done.. he gave the John Peel lecture a couple of years back, and smashed it. Clearly a tough old bird.

      The value that HD650 has is nuts. It likes to have good gear up stream though.

      Actually I've been in this hobby for quite a period,I never buy a pair of Sennheiser.(My friend lend me a pair of Hd600,but I just return it to him)I think HD650 is a good starting line for me.

      Isn't Chord an enthusiastic user of this line of argumentation?

      From the man himself:
      http://www.head-fi.org/t/800264/watts-up/150#post_12799889

      In short, all our "brain[s] will learn strategies to cope with poor sound quality" from ALL DACs other than Chord's... With their DACs, the "coping strategies need to be un-learnt", and you need to re-learn how to listen using Chord's units. ;)

      Hello, my name is John Franks and I don't understand a word Rob Watts says. But I'll happily parrot it. It takes Chord $13K+ of gear to match Schiit's $2300 statement. Need I say more?
