        LOL.. I went to Texas A&M and it was the only school I applied to. Back then there was no essay. I was in automatically based on SAT and class rank. I thought about applying to Rice as well but then I got the application and it was all "essay, essay, fill in this square with something." At that point I just decided A&M was for me.

        I actually wrote up this essay for my business school application but got into my Early Decision school and never sent it! Good introspection though.

        Nope, I'm actually just using an extension cable right now. Was thinking about pinging @fraggler to see if he'd be down to make me a short little adapter with 2 1ohm resistors in it for me though.

      Was gonna sell my Wyrd too, but then I realized I could probably use it as a linear power supply for my Raspberry Pi 2, totally worked!

        Nice! Although I think you need to go easy on the USB devices in that case. The Wyrd is limited to 500mA. Hmmm this made me think of an experiment.

        Wyrd -> RPi -> USB DAC

        vs

        RPi -> Wyrd -> USB DAC

        Just looked up the schematic to the Raspberry Pi 2. Older versions used a linear regulator for 3.3V and other voltages, but the RPi2 uses SMPS to convert the internal voltages. Granted USB powered devices only use 5V, but it's probably safer to use the Wyrd with the USB DAC rather then a linear supply for the RPi2.

        I don't have a Kuro, but I picked up a 51" F8500 when they were being discontinued. Can't beat that for $850.

        This is what I tell myself while I contemplate getting it calibrated and waiting for OLED.

        I'm thinking of buying from ielectrica as well.

        They have no return policy on large screen TVs, which makes me wary.


        If you do buy from your local place, inquire about the return policy, you never know what happens & you don't want to be stuck with a 55" paper weight.

        Some random thoughts after some A/Bing tonight:
        God, the Andromeda is smooth. Like Colt .45 straight from Lando Calrissian's mouth to your ears smooth. And clear. It's like being at a pristine, crystal clear lake and you can see all the way to the bottom, all the different layers of life and vegetation all the way down, in perfect detail. And man, that soundstage, the way the music floats in, it's fantastic.

        The Vega hits harder, is a bit muddier, but also is more propulsive and gritty. While Andromeda does sound excellent for rock, it's got a level of polish on everything that gives it almost a yacht rock feel. And hey, I love me some Steely Dan but not everything wants to be so smooth. If I'm cranking the New York Dolls the Vegas are where it's at.

        I will try that james444 mod for the Vega at some point, just to compare, but for now I'm enjoying the contrasts between the two. These are truly TOTL IEMs. The Andromeda feels like a breakthrough for BA drivers honestly. Such an assured, cohesive sound. And the Vega is the party guy, making everything you throw at it sound so fun.
