      Not silly - feels good to be accepted. Means you can make dumbass jokes like the rest of us without it being weird.

    These '94 KEF Ref 3s sound incredible. Over a month on I'm still blown away by them. Also, props to Emotiva for the quality affordable gear.

      Oh shit, I thought you meant sick as in touch of the flu, or a bite of off food, or something, not hospitalised with pneumonia!

      Heavy number. Hope it lightens up soon. Take care; I'm glad you're being professionally taken care of. Hope there are lots of pretty nurses.

      @frenchbat the old girl (house) is ancient, she's survived a lot. More likely the stuff inside will get messed up but unless it's a massive one no major damage expected.

      Felt like I was trying to keep balance on an exercise ball for a bit. Definitely could get worse, as per @GoodEnoughGear. Fingers crossed.

      You should only really be worrying when you can't walk anymore during the tremor. Old building usually have some give and wood helps keeping things together, until the big one comes.

    Is there any consensus as to what pulls a headstage outside of your head (ie. in front of your face) in a source? I'm feeding M9xx and SR15
    1. TomHP
      TomHP
      both through same amp (Pure II+) and the SR15 has noticeably more out of head head/sound stage.

      HD800 tries hard, but, in the end it is your brain that accomplishes the miracle. Your part in the process is to forget that you are wearing headphones.

      Yamaha tends to make decent budget stuff. IMO it’s best to try out the very guitar that you’ll be buying in person because the feel can vary between instruments - especially lower priced ones. One might be crap and another might feel great.

      In case you're wondering, I will give Friends a SWEET ASS deal on this. It comes with Applecare. The best I can get outside eBay is like $180, so you can lowball me and I won't be offended because I've already been lowballed by Amazon, Gazelle, etc. So make me a deal. Accessories can include Apple cover, the can-charge CCK, and video adapter.

      KSC-75s from my phone was acceptable. Stepping up to Fulla 2 was significant. Maybe my phones headphone out sucked more than most.
