    Thought: would burst response readings change in extreme cases of high or low amp output impedance with a particularly reactive driver?

      1: Yes, very likely
      2: Not sure I understand, but I don't think there's much there
      3: It definitely changes with damping, etc. What I'm most interested in is how much nonlinearity we can see with headphones. At maximum excursion in either direction, how does the impedance change?
      Oct 2, 2023 at 10:05 AM
    5. Serious
      3: They do this stuff for speaker drivers regularly and that's one of the advantages of low inductance designs (copper cap). Low inductance -> less of an impedance change. Less distortion.

      It's been a bad time for furries.

      Had to be The Ferryman a few days ago for my wife's daughter and one of her dogs on that dreaded final visit to the vet.

      Poor sweet Sasha was in a terrible state, and it was the right decision. She passed away gently, quickly and peacefully.

      Odd thing: the other dog of the house, an eccentric poodle, who never seemed to even like Sasha, is now heartbroken.

    In bed with 39,5°C (103°F) fever. Not Covid, it seems. Now that the sore throat is gone, the delirium is actually quite nice.

      After I let the fever do its job for the whole day, I took some Ibuprofen in the evening. Feeling much better now, ate quite a lot, too. :)

      103 is touching on "Get Help."

      But if its viral there's probably not much they can do. But do consider it.

      Hope you are well soon

      @Thad E Ginathom Yes, I know. If it had stayed that high, a friend who is a doctor would have visited today. But I’m happy to report that since yesterday evening, I didn’t develop fever anymore. Still a bit tired, but that’s it.

      The Magnius was the first thing I ever bought from schiit I sent right back. Flat 2d boring sounding chip amp. The midgard probably destroys it and most likely Jotunheim 2 should be looking over it's shoulder. I could be wrong though, would love to hear it, but I already have 4 headamps.

    quick update on the doggo: still not out of the woods yet. back in ICU for GIT issues. less serious, but we're playing it safe.
    1. yotacowboy
      Neuro is greatly improved, she's climbing/descending stairs w/o assistance, and platelet count is spectacular. but bad GI response (poss. ulcer) for 7 days now is taking a toll. Just want to get my little girl the recovery she deserves after such a hard fought battle to still chase squirrels.

      I tended to remember r/headphones being very pro-objectivist and saying that anything beyond the O2/ODAC was useless. The DIY tube subs are a bit better though

      @Cspirou it's more Topping is "wire with gain" and anything else is "inferior from a measurable perspective".

      Memories of plane trips 20 years and more back: carrying a little man-purse size thing that could accommodate a portable player and about a dozen disks. Had to be small enough to convince airline staff that it shouldn't count as an extra carry-on. Still got the player, not the case.

      All these people who are well-beyond retirement age but still cling to their power. All due respect to my older friends but we need age limits. Feinstein, McConnell, Biden, Trump.. none of them should be running for national public office at their ages.

      We've been blessed with wonderful old senators (McCain, Carl Levin, Moynihan, Romney et al.). We should not be ruling out the most-experienced, best-qualified candidates with age-limits or term-limits. We need to find other solutions—ranked-choice primaries would be a start. I'm only mildly concerned about the likely 2020 candidates; but see
