        @Kunlun Why don't you just make 10 louder and have that be the highest number?

        12 at most, using high gain. Depends on the recording as well.

        I wonder if its because the output of the GO450 is higher. I'm using the lower level out, but might still be high.

      My Valhalla arrived! Too bad I just took a physics test, and now have to take a comp sci test, so I can't see and hear it yet.

      Do you think this does anything/is worth it to make a cable for my bass? Silent is nice, The Timbre thing is kinda weird, but is is Neutrik.

        Cool. That NP2rx seems bizarre. I wouldn't want a cable to be a tone control. Use the knobs on your instrument or amp, or a pre or EQ pedal if you want.

        @cizx.6 Agreed - if you're going to buy a nice gun you need to be shooting someone regularly with it.

        @Azteca I've honestly been using the same Dimarzio cable for probably 15 years or more with no probs! Take good care, learn to roll it back up properly and take steps to relieve strain such as always putting it through your strap before plugging it into your instrument and any decent cable should last a long time.

        @DigMe yep I hear ya. As an audio engineer I instinctively wrap everything properly with over-under which keeps it all working great. Looping through strap is great and I also use right-angle connectors where they make sense.

        Yeah the reissue probably comes from the CD which was made from the master tape and original instrumental tracks Fripp lost in the 60s and found in the early 2000s. The original lp was made from a generational copy and doesn't sound good.

        Just don't get the hdcd version of the set. The current pressings are normal CDs but Fripp was smart and never enabled the peek limiting anyway.

        Mimby>Val2>hd650 is a great combo that I enjoyed for awhile. I agree with the others that a Bifrost could be a better investment unless you plan on getting Gumby later down the road. Schiit gear holds it's value either way though.

        Bifrost looks nicer stacked with the Valhalla anyway. Bifrost 4490 might be worth a listen with the HD650. I thought it sounded a little bit brighter than the multibit, which could pair well.

        Thanks. It seems like a really cool program, and I have toured the facilities. They have an anechoic chamber and a reverberation room. Ill see if I can steal time in the anechoic chamber to measure some speakers. I recall there being what looks like genelec monitors hanging in that room.
