      Plugged my recently ordered back-up set of tubes for my DNA Starlett in today. I have more gain, about a notch (so "5" is as loud as 6).

        Maybe my input tube (6CG7) has more gain from factory (it's new production) or my OG tube lost some gain over about 1.5 years of use?

      I'm in the car today surfing the dial and it hits me: HD 650 sounds like most car stereo systems...

        The two cars I'm in regularly - a "sport" (thus the lowest trim) 2017 Mazada 6 and a 2012 Honda Odyssey minivan both share the HD650's tonality (no sub bass, distorted bass + mid bass hump, mid focus, upper mid emphasis, etchy and sibilant highs), as does most stock car systems I can recall

        My wifes Toyota Sequoia however does not, it's worse (a JBL branded "premium" system) and to wish it sounded like an HD650.

        Car audio is a big scene / industry, but I've seen pretty much zero overlap with the headphone online communities. Well done bridging the gap.

        LOL DigMe, I had just opened the door of the 2nd fridge we have in the garage when it popped on me (about an hour after the garage door had last been used). That garage door is lucky I was not armed at the time ;)

        My first thought was that someone had wrecked their car into my garage door so I went outside. When there was nothing to see there I could only assume someone was in my garage. I couldn’t imagine such a crash happening any other way.

        I've never owned a standalone humidifier that lasted more than a couple years. I think the ones that integrate directly with home HVAC are the only ones that do.

        The Corvette got the green arrow and pulled out into the intersection, but a HD van (did not catch the company) was running the red light. Corvette was t-boned on drivers side, and the A pillar was so collapsed it's hard to image the person survived.

        The Van went along to collide with a Toyota Corolla as well, but at a side swipe angle so those folks probably lived even if they had injuries. Reminds me to minimize our time in our small car, and spend our miles in our heavier ones...

        It's not a bad place in all. I lurk over there a whit, just seldom feel inclined to participate though quite a few on this forum do. Nice people, different preferences to SBAF, but I just feel very uncomfortable with the "scrolling" UX. No particular reason but I genuinely hate it compared to pages here.

        @Lyander Doom scrolling is a trigger for me. While fancy UX it to me just reduces the information I can take in. Totally with you on that.

        @Gazny I'm fine with Instagram and Discord, but it's like my brain is in a different gear compared to when I see pages? Less inclined to retain information, more conversational and loose, just overall different in feel. Blergh.

      Any coin collector/traders here? Need some basic advice about how to sell, online selling sites, etc.

        Her general advice is that selling privately online can involve risks, especially with potentially valuable coins. Buyers might falsely claim the coins are fake, for instance, and you might not be able to charge as much, if the coins are valuable, because online shoppers may not be serious collectors.

        Other options are to consign with a coin shop or to sell via auction house. The benefits of doing so are that both have relationships with dedicated collectors whom they contact when items come up for sale. These collectors are prepared to pay top dollar. You’ll have to pay a fee – often a % of the sale (as with online sale) – but you might secure a higher sale price this way.

        Unless they're willing to sacrifice some of their profit to pay more, I don't think it's going to go back... feels like prices were already kind of at the limit of what most people were willing to freely spend on a vacation.

        Family picked up an SUV near the beginning of lockdowns mid last year and while I thought it was a bit of an extravagance at the time, might actually have been wise given it was replacing a 2006 model. Fuck the current market, really.
