      I am getting tired of social unrest and people dying of Covid 19 and stupid racist cops.

        I have had a huge problem with lack of external police accountability since 2010 when I became aware of how bad it really was. Breonna's death really irked me... but it is far from the first no-knock raid gone bad (victims of all colors and ages... including infants) where NOTHING happened to the police despite gross errors/incompetence (whereas we'd be in jail for 20+ years).

        As for police with the wrong traits or behaving badly - those are not things I want in people with the legal authority to put my life on hold (arrest, jail, make me spend $$$ on legal fees, etc.) and with a state monopoly on the use of force. Military service is no excuse - lots of front line guys come back not a-holes.

        The conversation regarding the quality of personnel a Law Enforcement department employs was already discussed. Basically they don't go and scout the best of the best, they take whatever they can get to fill their budget needs. PTSD is no joke and affects everyone differently, for better or worse.

        @Claud Quite right, sir. "Thus a thief, I may kill, when he sets on me to rob me but of my horse or coat; because the law, which was made for my preservation, where it cannot interpose to secure my life from present force… permits me my own defence...." (Locke, Second Treatise §§17–19).

      HiBy R6 Pro sounds out of this world with CA Andros. Might sound better than iBasso DX 220. What a deal.

        This DAP has a sabre dac so no HF nasties? Have you tried easier to drive over ears, like the focals, or high ohm ones, like Senn's or ZMF out of it yet?

        Sabre nasties haven't been an issue for about 2 years, especially on the newer products.

      Ordered a HiBy R6 Pro from Amazon. Usually $699, but now $549 if you buy an aluminum frame one. Been enjoying my HiBy R3 and iBasso ITo1S.

      The Solaris SE is really starting to sound great. Might sound better than Andromeda even nor about 2/3rds broke in.

      How come Campfire Audio doesn't include a 4.4 balanced cable with at least their more expensive IEMs. I have called them out on it .

        You should swap them up for a slightly higher price at time of ordering. You would had to email them before ordering.

        I've got the solution: film her reaction now and then after listening to them, and then sell it to Campfire for promotional purposes.

      The new Norne Cable needed the break in, not the headphones.

        So hammer it, gently and evenly, all over. A swage block would help. Jeweller's size, of course, not blacksmith's

      I decided to switch to Verite' with new S3 8 wire Norne in order to get some break in hours on it. Bass is not slamming like Eikon.

        Is it because of the new cable or just the difference in headphones?
