    Season 4 of The Expanse was glorious. Thank you amazon for saving this amazing show from the clutches of Syfy

      Not going to lie, I consider half of the value from my amazon prime membership to come from watching the series. Best Sci-fi I have seen in a long time.

      Yeah season 4 was good. It's based on book 4 which is considered the worst in the series, next couple of seasons should be very good judging by the books.

    Damn, Peter Gabriel stuff is all on Bandcamp. If you want current 16/44 purchases, it's cheaper from Bandcamp than Qobuz.

      I try to stay away from Bandcamp because I could spend years and thousands of dollars there, discovering new stuff. But I might have to have have a peek. I have most of the PG stuff I want on CD, but here's hoping for some new material.

    Scooped a pair of ZS3 IEMs. The performance so far is incredible, especially for the $13 price. Neutral, with JUST enough warmth. <3

    I shed a lot of tears while watching the Crown episode Aberfan. I visited Abertillery, where my grand dad was born and it looked so similar.

      The location was like where he emigrated to and I grew up in Pa. It is sad about children losing their lives anywhere.

      It's a cheap meter. My house is small and with a very compact layout. HVAC and return are all setup in such a way to be loud as hell when it comes on.

      The old RS 3300099 is reliable to 30 dBA. I have several here and checked them all against the B&K 4231 and cross calibration at various SPL with ACO 7046 using pink noise through a Genelec 8030 at 25 cm. edit: at standard room temp only - accuracy reduced at other temperatures.

      I have a Check Mate CM 140 that I mounted to measure my ambient figure, I will admit the fridge is sorta loud. Enough that I cut it off to shoot videos, can't do that for listening everyday tho

      But I can get a consistent 39.4 - 39.8 reading in the middle of my office at night. 41.3-42 dBa during the day. [Also I rent]

    Is the SPDIF coaxial connector loose on the Gungnir for anyone else? It works, but it kinda feels funky connecting the cable.
    1. Roman
      Yeah, it was kind of loose on my Gungnir. It is not attached to the chassis, only soldered on the motherboard, that's why. BNC is much more rigid.
      Dec 14, 2019 at 9:07 PM
    2. GoldfishX
      It is on my Bifrost Multibit. No performance issues, but very noticeable, since I swap SPDIF sources frequently.

      Was a "hi-res" skeptic until I pulled up some familiar albums in 24/96 on Qobuz, like Buckley's "Grace". Been cursing MQA more ever since. I'm sure you're getting a better sense of Yggdrasil's resolving abilities as well.

    Gonna try out Spotify for a while. The student pricing makes it a no-brainier for discovering music.

      Spotify doesn't have the same DRM? I thought UMG did that on all of their music that's not on CDs, including bought(!) digital copies.
      Dec 14, 2019 at 3:19 PM
    3. LetMeBeFrank
      I haven't noticed it on Spotify. It was most noticeable on hi-res content on Tidal, so maybe lower bitrate makes it harder to discern. Also I don't critically listen with Spotify, whereas if I'm paying for lossless I want it to be indistinguishable from my CD rips. Either way, Tidal supports MQA so I won't support them.

      Oh, I don't listen to the 'Master' tracks on Tidal, either. I think Music that isn't UMG should be fine, though. I know it was in the past, but maybe things have changed.

    They all physically similar . 580,600,650, 6xx variants
    1. Lyander
      True, but mods for one won't necessarily work for another I feel, just from how much different the presentation of the HD650 is from the HD600's at least (not heard HD580 yet).

      The power, the presence, the variety of sounds, the dynamic range, the melodic and harmonic stuff... nothing to beat it.

      I'm sorry that I've seen so few live orchestral performances in my life. Although I have been to a couple of biggies, eg Mahler's 2nd.
