      Lower jitter homebrew streamer+quiet PSU=noticeable upgrade for a reasonable price. Very pleased with how it all sounds.

      When your DAP breathes album alphabetical serendipity, something that you haven't heard for 20 years can blow your socks off..

      AAC transcodes of music now syncing from JRiver to iTunes, and thence onto the iThingy, which is now officially a second class citizen.

        Remember- everything sucks. A DAP seems like the best bet for music right now, mind.

        Edit:

        Also, the Apple stuff seems to be unable to grok Album Artist tags, so compilations are just a mess, grr.

        Yeah, I am pretty much at that point too, with JRiver. It's just Apple stuff that is being janky and irritating- it also ignores the "Album Artist" field. Doh!

      Figured out how to automatically sync audio to both targets on the WM1A from JRiver, tagging files with a custom boolean to choose internal!

        I've never thought of them as industrial, but I guess the distorted vocals on that track can give that impression.. Admittedly, they did also touch on thrash metal, drum and bass and other things, too on some tracks, as well as their usual epic stadium house and ambient sounds.

        ..but yes, The KLF, never knowingly understated!

      Hoooly crap.. listening to dub and dubstep on the Martians via the Jotunheim- now I can hear why it's a dual DD setup. Really lovely sound.

        Tighter lows than a (good) sausage's skin. But still thunderous. The Jodie and Martian play well together. My favorite thing about that pairing is how much the soundstage opens up.

        I hadn't really noticed the soundstage- I was using them as noise blocking while working from home, I will pay more attention. It was the clean, deep, tough bass that grabbed me by the throat. I love it when headphones sound neutral and only become bass monsters when the track actually demands it.. that's how it should be, IMO.

        I tell you what folks, the Poly is going to be yuge. It's going to make audio great again, it's some amazing stuff made by the best people. It's a great value because we followed our normal BoM to price ratio, so this is clearly a steal.

        Did I capture the sentiment of the thread well? Actually, my grammar and spelling might be better...

        @Smitty You forgot to mention "state-of-the-art ultra high technology"
        His desperate posts to justify the price are akin to desperately trying to explain why someone should pay for a wall or something.

        First HFM and now Chord. Are the HFer's revolting?

        Despite the slim chances.. UM Martian has landed. Unlike the Andromedas, they more or less go in my ears.

        Given the total lack of UK distribution, they may as well be from another planet.. but it may just be worth the hassle. They sound bloody great.

      HD800 SDR mod applied - it really takes that nasty 6kHz edge off them. They're almost like headphones now!

        I have some quite well-behaved HD650M for stuff that dies to the suckout- I'm sure they will continue to get more head time than anything else. HD800 is just something you have to do.

        In hindsight I would do what you did and get HD800SDR rather than the HD800S. Add SBAF mod or go sonarworks EQ and you may get there!

        Yep, probably a shade over 90% today too, hate it. I actually really like the stats sound, but this is what keeps stopping me from pulling the trigger on some.. I don't want to have to check the weather forecast/a hygrometer to decide if I should listen to music!

        This has been the pattern of the last N winters, mind. Welcome to climate change, I suspect.

        I wouldn't worry too much. I don't think you have 90% humidity in your room. Where I am it's 95% outside and 55% inside because it's cold outside. Hot and wet could be a problem, though.
