Can't remember ever hearing Hybrid Theory have any real bass impact. First time listening to the HDtracks release through badass speakers. May 26, 2017

        Yeah. Just about everything has bass impact now. It's the speakers. LOL

      First trial run of new floorstanders. Two drivers, same output in my room at 17Hz and 17kHz. Neat.

        SEOS-12/DE250 + Beyma 12BR70 in 5.4cuft@26Hz. Crossover is a weird third order 1.3kHz thing that still needs some tweaking with HP level and LP slope. Perfect phase tracking across xover point though. Shamelessly stole and adapted the Bagby Tempest design.

      Just learned if someone leaves Spotify logged in you can control their other devices from it. I gave her a nice playlist on the way home.

        Yes same account. I have to admit it started with Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up". Couldn't resist. I didn't bother messing around, I went straight for "There's No Brakes on the Rape Train" by Barbarian Fist after that...

      Breaking Benjamin, because sometimes you need the music equivalent of popcorn.

        My endodontist told me to avoid popcorn like the plague. But I was listening to Breaking Benjamin in the chair during my last root canal. No cavities or fillings in my life ... but several cracked teeth. I digress, however.

      Can detect the slight veil of the Modi MB vs. Bif MB with my speakers. Only a 5-10% diff though for a 240% price gap. Phenomenal.

        @DigMe Very interesting. I've heard a bit in the past about how inaccurate memory can be, I actually had a professor in college who used to regularly serve as an expert witness in criminal trials pointing out how people alter and fabricate memory.

      I like how they tell you where to plug your headphones into a Zana Deux but not that "L and H" is for gain.

        To further bitch about the labeling on my most favorite personal possession... The non-colored RCA's on back are hard to distinguish L/R when wrapping your head around the back. Also the pre-outs are labeled "line outs" for some reason which is confusing

        "Also the pre-outs are labeled "line outs""

        I guess... you could connect them to anything that expects a line-level input. Like direct to active speakers?

      ISO: tiny horn amp that plays all the music. 1W is all that is needed, DIY possible. Inexpensive. Jonokuchi?

        Jonokuchi is a very reasonable option here. Probably one of the cheapest SET options out there, but still sounds great.

        I have a set of boards to build a Pass F5 (actually two) but 25wx2 just seems so overkill. Maybe the Amp Camp Amps but I wonder how they really sound in comparison...

        Black is very much limited-quantity with Schiit, right?

        The way to succeed at not-buying a limited deal is to go on trying until you miss it.

        But, in life, love and hifi, I have successes that I will always regret!

      USB out of a $40 RPi is noticeably better than USB, opt, OR coax out of a $250 ASUS motherboard. :/

      Got an Asgard 2 today. I really dig it. Always preferred speakers, but I'm thinking that was more due to lack of good amplification...
