        some speakers are designed for the australian market. Always best to check before use for proper orientation.

        I thought it was out of phase, maybe the position of them, maybe my tweeter blew. I ended up cleaning my ears, both of them on different days. It wasn't until I was asked to take a photo of them had I noticed I placed the back grill upside down but appearing right side up.

        Just a cheap thinkpad from ebay, it was my third one. Just a good option a few years back. but this one has wifi AX on it now. Speed is just crazy. even a i7 cpu I picked up for it off reddit for free, single core it is still faster than my ryzen 1st gen that came years after. I havn't been to any place local.
        I liked this one ewaste vendor online citizen green I believe.

        I had no idea you had to find a vendor for your e-waste disposal. It's no wonder most of it ends up in landfill. My local waste management facility accepts e-waste for free.

        The best I get in my city is a monthly vegetation day instead of recycling. For e-waste I have to either deliver it, or a private company will post flyers saying they will pick up what ever I put outside maybe twice a year. No clue how it is treated after they pick it up.

        Huh, really? My understanding is it is like a regular CD in all ways except it was pressed using Blu-ray production equipment, ie more accurate lasers. If it can play in a regular player, don't know why it shouldn't rip. Try multiple drives and programs - dBPoweramp, EAC, Cueripper.

        Thought so too, but it was unreadable on my dvd drive on my laptop. I might be able to try it on other devices, but it is unrecognizable on my laptop.

        I considered a bluray slim drive, a few on ebay. I will update this with my progress and maybe make a thread into my cd format adventures

        I was looking for mostly the newer style push in feet, they are like a nice plastic bit you push into the case hole not the older stick on adhesive style.

        That might well be the difference between a consumer item, easily available, and an electronics-trade part that has to be searched for.

        I love the stick-ons, in various shapes and sizes, for various uses from feet for devices, through wall/door-knob protection, to making pushbuttons immediately findable even in the dark.

        If the stick is good, does it make a great difference? Unless you need longer, actual feet.

        I've flipped a few things. Meze 99C comes to mind, got for free but sold years later for cost of shipping and new pads plus a $20 premium I think. Used money for a balanced cable for the HP-3. Disclosed it was a flip ofc.

        But that only goes for stuff I'm indifferent about. There are some things I'm determined to keep to Friends and friends, like the one prototype Fostex porta amp I got off Bill-P years back that still needs refurbishing; that's staying on SBAF.

        That kind of makes sense. If you think about it, a tape head and tape is kind of like an isolation transformer. Matter of fact, the Neve analog tape emulator is just this...two coils really close together. It does other stuff like emulate the saturation, which maybe adding in some of those harmonics.

        I went with high index for my glasses (progressive and reading), but also add a 5-10 % tint (usually grey or blue). I find the tint helps take a bit of the edge off some things that otherwise appear too sharp. I consider it to be visual EQ, much like I use sound EQ to tune my headphones to my personal preferences.

        I enjoy both more on the Aeolus, I think, but that's probably attributable to the fact that I listen to music with a lot of acoustic instruments and vocals.

        YES! these new releases have almost no acoustical aspects to them. Mostly edm, Death Grips, Dorian Electra, 100 GECS, Kanye west on the clears.

        The Aeolus made me love Acoustic music. Lou Donaldson, Michel Petrucciani, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Nils Lofgren, Kenny Dorham, Joel Xavier, Jacques Loussier.

        Just helped me realize there is no 1 headphone.
