    This bottle of hot sauce was only $1 cheaper than two pounds of fish. Oh well, its really good.

      That is the beginning. The measurement options are a la carte. By the time one adds all the measurements such as Dynamic Range, IMD, Frequency Sweep, etc. the price jumps $500 for each additional measurement. Easy to hit $22,500 in the configuration quote. And you still need your own ADC and DAC. Might as well just buy the HW version.

    I always think when I meet/like a girl "I have to do well, I'll never meet another girl again" but then I always do.

    Hot weather is prohibitive towards turning on tubes or amps like Jot R. Happy I kept Asgard 3 around.

    Broke out the Shure V15 Type III w/JICO SAS stylus. This thing is really good!

    Ideas - headphone pads molded to the shape of your head, APEX-like pressure neutralizing membranes for baffles, passive radiators on cups.

    back to "hot summer listening" = YggyA2-->Freya+-->Topping PA3-->Micca RB42 w/REQ. Cheap seats ain't so bad. Stunningly good bass extension.

    Shit, Yello's latest album dropping next month. Latest single, "Waba Duba" is pure Yello action.

      Freaking sweet. I have been a fan of theirs since I heard the Manga OST dub for Space Cobra Film. "wtf is this music....I need more."

    This front baffle of the speaker I am assembling today is insane, about 1.5" thick of solid aluminum

    Tip rolling is serious business. On my CX300s every tip give a slightly different sound. Now I start to understand the IEM-folk...

      I've got my foot in the door of a few audio worlds, but IEM's really hit the sweet spot of ease and cost of adjustment for me. Great devices. Wish I could swap the rooms of my 2CH system as easily as I can roll tips.

      I like its appearance, too. Very sleek looking.
      I don't quite like tons of marketing words though -- on top of cumulated disappointments of their recent highly-priced products.

      Funnily enough Sony asked us if we wanted to the NA launch of this speaker the middle of July. Obviously not happening now, Sony doesn't have an ETA for NA just yet now.

      It does look interesting but doesn't look very practical for a desktop

      He liked The Verve's early music. He is not that bad. Psychedelic Britpop is an acquired taste.

      No, he starts in on some manic episode and the shit posting goes through the roof time and time again. All the admins and mods are tired of this being the tone of SBAF. If we have to do this ever again it's a perma.

      Hey, as long as you know the risks, and are OK with it, order up a set of those grills and when they come in, hit me up. We can work it out then. Oh, I'd order at least 2 sets or more. I ordered 2 and 1 set came in scratched to hell, but at least they are sending out a replacement set. Continued...

      As for tuning, I just might hyu for some different material ideas once I listen to them. I've got to get some glue to attach the black part of the grill to the surround and then the surround to the cup. Once it's good and dry I'll swap the cups and give them some ear time.
