    LG V60 is huge, but that second screen is actually pretty damn useful. I'll get to the audio this weekend vs V30 and maybe BW2 and DAC1541.

    Having fun with HE6SE I hadn't worn for a while. Re-confirming it is the best HFM among I've ever owned (and the second best among I heard).

      I listened to one of these 390 to 500 eur range new Hifimans last year out of Jot. I liked them. Build quality and feel was good based on that shorter session. I might consider one of these at some point.

    Ballade No. 1 in G minor is the best song Chopin wrote. It's also too fucking hard to play.

    Odd that Gilby Clarke looks like a Gary Oldman character these days...

      Not our problem if they don't get why it exists, don't read the rules, etc. We've never claimed to be a "normal" audio forum whatever the heck that means.

      Anyone who dislikes me gets ape poo thrown in their face just like my avatar...all you dog/cat people do not have the digits/dexerty to pull of such a thing, thus you can't go apeshit and are jealous...

    Kind of itching for a new modding project. Anyone want to send me a pair of AKG / Sony / Audio Technica / Beyers?

      @netforce after watching a disassembly video I'm a little worried about messing up the cable leads (could always solder but don't really want to deal with the hassle), and there's not much room to work with here. So I'll pass on those but thanks for the offer!

      No worries, it doesn't seem like the AKGs ever have too much space for modding. Got a pair of Audio Technica ESAW9A but it might be the same case, too small to do any mods on it.

      Another odd hobby of mine (although MUCH less vs pretty much all other hobbies) is fragrances... I'm oddly interested in this as well... except 50% chance joke is on us and it smells like nothing.

      I won't exactly be happy with something that smells like nothing, but the matching donation to STEM education and the cool bottle and packaging might make up for it.

      Wild guess: It will smell like dust (via non-gaseous elements lighter than iron), vaguely smoky + stuff burning (lots of things that burn off in space + abundant carbon = smoke), and maybe of ozone or other gases in our upper atmosphere (b/c they probably got the data from space station/s, not deep space). Not expecting any nice, rich, or complex smells given relative lack of complex molecules in space.

    Working at home pros: no commute, stay in pajamas, closer to fridge. Cons: all my equipment joining thermal forces in an upstairs bedroom

      To be fair, they were joining thermal forces in my office too, but free AC was a different situation

    Just ordered another 8 pairs of pads from aliexpress. I'm addicted, and TH900 shows more variation with pads than any other headphone I own.

    My Brainwavz HM5 is falling apart. Ordered the CX300s to try. If in-ears are nice, the Beyerdynamic DT150 might be my last full size...

    Asgard 3 says would be shipping on 6/30. Now 7/1 and mine hasn't shipped yet now I'm getting paranoid. Realized I don't have patience

      Don’t order a big boy tube amp then, you’ll have a mental breakdown waiting ;)

      @Gaspasser bit too late for that lol, just put in my deposit for the DNA Starlett. Predicted 6 month wait time. Already looking to buy a BH Crack to replace my DV until the Starlett gets here :)

      One of my favs. It reminds me of my college radio days. I still think The Weight Is a Gift is one of their best.
