        I get anxiety just hearing the word "portfolio." Goes back to grade school where I fell like I am already WAY behind.

        Spending a ton of money to make some other money doesn't sound amazing. Personal investing beyond the normal 401k stuff is probably better. We are looking into franchises for sure, just trying to make sure we have an overall plan rather than a "big idea" type thing going on. Thankfully we have a few income streams at the moment, but we're both 40-ish and trying to push forward smartly.

      Anyone running a franchise? Wife and I are considering $80k buy-in for window treatments and are ready for anyone to talk us out of it.

        Hopefully you won't be driving 10-12 hrs/day to different parts of the city to do measurements, installs, and marketing. If you'll be doing the work, make sure it's work you won't mind doing. And if you'll be hiring employees to do it, there's a whole other can of worms.

        I know that buying a franchise is buying a "proven system" (hopefully proven), but I wonder if you need a franchise at all for window treatments?

        @Syzygy I think it's about hitting the ground running and having processes in place, ground already well worn, vendor relationships, training, complete platform for managing the business, basically taking the easy way out. I can sell anything (I think), and have a career based on sales and management.
        I've started calling franchise owners and asking their opinions. We'll see what they say.

        Find out if you're gonna have to scam people in order to make it work or to get what you want out of it. I'm not saying, "Don't be a crook." That's a given. I'm saying find out if there's some crooked aspect to it that's hard to avoid in order to make a decent living. It's not a fun question to look into, but you're *much* better off knowing.

      So I might be polishing a turd, but I already like the DAC, so... Got a used MHDT Paradisea+ DAC to upgrade/mod.

        No one has talked about this DAC in years but it already sounds good with a new Sparkos 2 channel opamp and a GE 5 star tube in it. Let's see what happens when I drop some crazy caps in it.

      2541 sounds really good, but seems to have a sheen on it. Black filter. Still would smash, regardless. Definitely worth $1300. Good DAC.

        Audio Research DAC 1-20 MkIII,
        Holo Spring 2 level 2, Bifrost 2,

        Might be my new favorite: Walnut

      I hate to keep shitting on Clear Mg, but really it isn't good enough for the price tag. Aeolus kills it, at less money.

        Interesting.

        Haven't thought Aeolus characterizes preference. But now starting to think that way as after months of effort I couldn't like it (not meaning it sounds terrible but overall underwhelming relative to what I easily love) with any pads available at the moment. Elimination was an easy decision and I don't miss it to date. Maybe I have to hear it again.

        Out of curiosity which pads do you use?

        Regarding Mg, I just find it kinda bland. I'm still going to listen to it each night I have it, because I want to believe that I just don't "get" it yet and I'm going to have a lightbulb moment.

      I really didn't expect to fall so hard for Utopia, but here we are. Had to roll tubes to deal with some treble. I guess my system sucks?

        I too fell for Utopia, many years ago. But I think the headphone is a little wonky - needs specific system configuration to sound best. Not indicative of a "bad" system.

        It's hard not to fall for the Utopia, it's a headphone everyone should experience for a bit and a good candidate for long term use. I still maintain Stellaris + Utopia is the best one can get without going full bananas.

        @DigMe Listened to the album "Still" by NIN, was surprised by the production. Hadn't listened to them in years. Dude's whiny, sad, needs a hug (but I still like it) and you can hear things coming from all around you on the record. I don't go listen to their normal records when I revisit them, it seems. It's the remix records that suck me in.

        I remember it sounded impressively thick and bold. From the memory, general tone largely resemble Bifrost 2. Maybe I'd describe it BF2 on a steroid. More organic, punchier, but tad less resolving (the unit heard could be a bad one).

        Nonetheless, I had to laugh at the asking price.. 1750. lmafo. My maximum willingness to pay is around 800 if it's in a really great shape.

        Just my personal feeling, but I'd say contributors should not feel bad about ad-blocking. Maybe even a modest contribution is more than SBAF makes from us merely seeing ads as we browse.

        Personal experience: I browse SBAF almost entirely on PC, not phone. I don't have my ad-blocker turned on for this site. I'm not seeing intrusive ads.
