INCOMING!! Lost my mind. HiBy R3 Pro Saber and CA Ara on their way.
You single-handedly trying to keep audio companies in business?
Sansa Clip 2020
"Go big, or go home"
Customs Canada - You're killin' me Smalls!
Morpheus and a new HAT from @Michael Kelly ! Apparently Mississauga is overloaded with packages and restricted staff......
People are looting and destroying stores only 1.5 miles away from where I live. They should know they're dishonoring George. Oh well.
Yikes, hope you stay safe
Schiitr opens again on Thursday, June 4. Please bring your own headphones if you make the trip!
Good Luck. Your on-line services have been great during this health emergency.
Correct, masks required. LA County ordinance.
I assume the signage is ready?
“Please don’t kiss the Yggdrasil”
Finally made it to Denver. I start work doing something at YG acoustics tomorrow
Bring a kippa.
What did you think of the drive? Lots of scenery once you get into Colorado.
Lots of scenery once you get into Colorado yes. But from NY to Colorado there is nothing. Just 20 hours of nothing.
Wasn't too bad though, I don't mind long drives
I want to replace my integrated amp with Ragnarok 2, but I still want to keep my Freya in the mix. Am I crazy?
Not at all. You get more flexibility as to inputs and optional tube buffering with the Freya in play.
Add Freya to the chain once you get the Rag. If you don't hear any positive reasons to keep the Freya, then you can afford to lose it.
No. It's a convenient and not crap-sounding way to have multiple inputs/outputs in case you need that functionality
With all the shit that is occurring that is no longer just on the tv for many members, I hope SBAF and their families stay safe.
Saw police lookouts on the rooftops of a Glendale police station yesterday, and soldiers and military vehicles today near the Santa Monica Pier. Surreal.
Friend shot in the head by a rubber bullet, concussed and bleeding in the brain. He was there as a medic. 'To protect and serve' my ass.
At this point in time it would be fair to assume anyone out "protesting" should be ready to face the consequences, it's no longer a game.
Unfortunately, it goes with the territory. Even as "bystander" at protests or acts of disobedience, I would always expect to get shot with rubber bullets in the eye, getting bean-bagged in the face, or be "accidentally" hit with baseball bat by a rando. Especially given the circumstances where things have been going out of control. Things can go south in a second. I'm older now, so I stay far away from these things.
Very sorry to hear about your friend.
Time to reread some John Brunner classics; The Sheep Look Up "It’s from America. The wind’s blowing that way."
The trad conservative intellectual side (not Brunner's of course) has been talking about 'Weimar America" a lot recently
And MN is now officially a toss-up
With Trump (who is neither a modern liberal or conservative - he does not "fit" into either party status quo), Wuhan shutdown, and now these riots, only a fool would say they have the magic decoder, but yes one would think sideing with CHAOS would hurt you politically...
Never thought I'd say this - but I can't wait until I can see the dentist again.
You and me both. Had consistent nightmares last few weeks, ended up cracking plastic splint from pressure maybe. Waking up with shards and cuts in mouth is no fun lol.
Just saw him last week!
Someone explain to me how looting and destroying businesses (which is some families' livelihood) protests police brutality.
More respect for him than LeBron, tbh. But sadly not as loud a voice I think.
@ChaChaRealSmooth Koreans never forget Koreantown after LA Riots. Can't trust the cops to protect your stores, so need to protect yourself. When I was a kid back in NYC a lot of Asians where with the White/Jews/Italian voters in getting Rudy as Mayor back in the 90s. The one story people don't want to talk about is the # of Asian leaning Conservatives, which it is very interesting to me.
LeBron's an idiot. He'd see all Pacific Rim countries be vassals to China if he could make money off of it. I hope to see more people affected speak out - realizing what's at stake.
Every time going to put my HE6SE up for sale, OOPness forces to reconsider. Listen to a few tracks with them.. then "Ok, not for now.."
I've been on an HE6se kick for over a week. Love the sound, not the build quality. What else can match it though? Something from Abyss? Where do you upgrade to?
@dubharmonic There can be no up from them. lol. Just feel guilty not to use them as much as before (primary listening with speakers, then verites for desktop, work hours, or night time fun). To me verites have much nicer ergonomics and more forgiving highs.
This is why law abiding citizens need gas operated semi-auto shotguns. Everyone in El Lay knows there are not enough cops.
@crenca what happened with the ar?
@DEATHxMACHINE, a textbook example of how if it ain't muscle memory, your SOL because higher level thinking is just not present. For example, at one point I somehow managed to release the (full, metal) magazine, where it struck with a corner on the top of my bare foot
I spent a couple of hours the next day cleaning up the blood I trailed through the entire house. A real intruder probably could have casually strolled from room to room killing my entire family, before even getting to me. I wish there was a video of the experience, it could serve as a demo at the beginning of a rifle class... ;)
Massdrop x Focal Elex w/ Black Dragon cable upgrade is SWEET.
LA County in a curfew at 6PM. Good going looters and vandals.
Want to add, I'm guessing the pandemic brought more intensity to the looting and vandalism due to the extended time of being kept indoors and a good %-age of ppl being under insufficient UI to them or nothing.
We're overdue for our generational riot anyway.
HB got hit with an 8pm curfew in the downtown area, Goldenwest to Beach Blvd, and Yorktown to PCH. I live in the middle, waiting to see if the yahoos start up.
Why is more often than not, cheaper to buy a physical CD & have it shipped vs purchasing a digital download.
usually 16/44 is standard CD price (though not discounted), and when > 16/44 is available it's always cheaper than the usual "Hi Res" outlets...
The album I was looking at was 11.49 via Qobuz, 11.99 7digital and 17.99+ hi-res. But only 6.49 for CD via Amazon. It’s messed up
Yes, it's an inversion but such things are common in market transitions, and in this case the long slow death of the physical media market.
Well, the LA riots have just turned personal for me and my family. Hope that everyone else is safe during these troubled times.
Here in HB today the anti protesters showed up to help chase antifa and friends out. It was local knowledge in the neighborhood we weren't going to let them burn and loot this city so easily, if they want to, they will have to work for it. Funny thing is the anti protesters are basically the local residents and business owners, where as many protesters came from other areas...
Ugh... so disappointing to hear. Hope all of you are safe.
After Proud Boys got arrested for being attacked by Antifa, they stopped showing up. Too bad. They were good at making Antifa think twice before attacking little old ladies.
Day 2 of Focal Clear. Definitely the most transparent headphone I have ever used. Use high quality audio files or else!
Very true, until you hear the Utopia ;)
Long awaited goal achieved, all DHT tube amp. Yummy.
