Rob I'am interested in een ROON discout code . 4 days my trail will be gone.
Playing Forza Horizon, discovered Hospital Records... :o Nice tracks. Pre-ordered "We are 21" on amazon. :)
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!
What happened to @MoatsArt? I've been away for a bit...
TLDR - He was bringing too much personal drama and it was getting too distracting
HD6XX arrived and Genelecs set up yesterday afternoon. Me giggling like a fool all evening long.
All my gear is #obsolete, presuming my new HD600's were obsolete when I bought them.
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!
-it could have been designed to fit on top of a pi :)
You may be a zueen?!!
Again, saying NICELY: please put the sideways political / apocalyptical / "strength for the weak" / "incidental assassination" stuff aside.
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.
Mental image of Marvey saying this while slowly polishing a banhammer sitting on his lap.
You know it.
Now we know the Mayans miscalculated the event by 4 years & 1 month.
No more political posts. Word: you can't control what certain politicians do or say, but you can control what YOU do or say.
I owe everyone some posts including some on culture and SBAF related to this.
A new era for us all....I see greatness in our future. 2017 is going to be a great year
So much (delicious) salt! But this is going to be a great year for everyone, even the haters.
@imackler Yes! I'm hopeful a @schiit DDC/Manhattan/Modibit stack will help me feel less ruined by someone stealing my Yggdrasil...
Wait, so this is a social network too?
Yes. I'm going to tweet today: Everything's going to be OK.
I like to think of it more as an antisocial network...
stfu you can buy blue jean cables on amazon
Tried listening to random (shitty) sources to appreciate better what i have. It worked. Never plugging my orions into the lab PC ever again.
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.
I might even forgive them for the fucking awful laggy UI on the F55 professional 4k video cameras *mutter*
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.
So much awesome in that short :)
Well that escalated pretty fast.
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.
Finally grab a pair of HD650 from amazon.co.uk
Congrats! Mine were "dispatched" today.
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.

Pretty weird song IMO. I'm sure the album will be varied, though.
This song may not even be on their new album, it might be a one off.
Thanks for linking this. Pretty odd song, though.
Any time ANY manufacturer uses phrases like "our brains need time to adapt to <insert their new tech here>" my BS meter pegs off scale-high.
Walk away, pay your rent and buy your groceries. Let them think their solipsist words are true and walk away...
Isn't Chord an enthusiastic user of this line of argumentation?
From the man himself:
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?
