      3 x HDMI cables= 3 x different sounds = flabbergasted. This is not supposed to happen.

        Duly noted and well observed. Time to start building some amps instead of mucking around with cables.

      Battle of the Bastards = 25 days. Unknown S8 Battle = 55 days. Yes, my expectations are high!

        and boobs... I think the battles are incredibly well done with real weight and consequence in the aftermath, yet that is not this shows allure, indeed.

        If the show were nothing but battles it would suck, but, 8 seasons of power struggling without battles seems like it would also suck and GoT does battles REALLY well I think. I like the Battles... and the Boobs.

        I wasn't a huge fan of the battle itself but the aftermath was the most triumphant moment of the series to me.

        I had one I tried out with a GO450 and a DFRED, from a Macbook AIR. It was a POS, made everything sound soft and generally worse.

        Highly likely. I am planning to test it between SMPS and Raspberry player, out of sheer curiousity. I have read quite a few reports similar to what you and Bixby have experienced, hence the reference to “dark side”.

      Atomic Blond: Did not breath for 10 minutes during the stairway fight scene. Joan Wick? Excellent soundtrack if you like late 80’s music.

        I thought a solid performance by Theron, action was great, can see why many/critics didn't like it though. Can never have enough GoG action...

      Black Panther was ok, if overhyped. Interesting characters, mediocre action. For me the best Marvel is still Winter Soldier.

        I thought Black Panther was imperfect but got a lot right. I've seen Winter Soldier probably half a dozen times and like it a little more each time. Civil War is still my winner and I have high hopes for Infinity War.

        Fantasyland by Kurt Andersen is an interesting read on this, as it relates to that premise in the USA. Don't read if harsh criticism of organized religion offends.

        The guy mentioned Audio Science Review in his comment. I went over and decided to read their ODAC review. The admin plugged his headphones into the lineout and declared it inferior.

        Pretty sure that site founder has bungled measurements repeatedly... and refused to admit it until he tries again later.

        At this point I have to assume TiM is a successful parody account to explain "NwAvGuy and his designs pass the test of time, I know of Mastering Engineers that own and use his DAC & Amp.

        I'd say it really depends on the game, and how conscious you are of the sounds/music while you're playing. Some games really emphasize sound being part of the atmosphere (e.g., Hollow Knight, Transistor). Many others it's just sorta... there unless you make an effort to hear it.

        So how much time do you spend actually LISTENING while playing? Just my $0.02.

        That is probably why I feel it is worth it to purchase a dac for gaming. I prefer to "experience" games more than just playing it through. I usually play games many times through. Sounds are big part of that...

        Yeah, I know...I use these for fun. Mostly because of it's gaming accesories and portability. Having owned most of the competitors, I keep coming back to them.

        Then they must do something really well. If I have to buy another Brainwavz HM5, I will have no doubts. The same with my K181 DJ (I already have a spare one). I liked the Crossfade's design and construction. Never bought one as no one could personally recommend one...
