        sister had flights to and from our parents' cancelled. Ended up booking with another airline for return flight on the same day. Her husband was supposed to fly to visit his family afterward, took greyhound instead, arriving a day after original date. Still, could have been worse

        I read that on one particular day, SWA accounted for 50% of all cancellations - GLOBALLY. I’ve also read it is due to antiquated staffing software.

        Never heard any of the E-series myself, but here's a guy who's bought 5 and listened closely to the 6th; you might be able to triangulate vs E1000 from what he writes:
        https://www.audioreviews.org/final-e-series-lineup-kazi/
        TLDR (my interpretation): E3000 seems closest but might be too mid-bassy.

      Just picked up a Grado RS2E. The new Grado F Cush or TTVJ Deluxe Flat Pads? Any consensus?

        Grado F cush is better. If you want to get more Grado, the Gerod pads are less bowly bowls that split the difference.

        Damnit I love my iPod touch, I was hoping they would make a new one. I don't want to stream with my big iPhone. I guess I'll have to look into an iPhone SE, though it looks like they're unlikely to make another one of those because it's not selling well. Bummer everything has to be so huge,

        The current iPhone SE has an A15 chip, it'll be good for many years. By then Apple will have some other option available I'm sure.

        In 2004 I bought my first iPod, and then first Mac mini with external hard drives for a music server. I think hard drives cost about $1 per GB back then. Somewhere around 10 yrs ago I finally got pissed enough with iTunes file corruption tomfuckery to do podcasts on phone and reripped cds to FLAC and used Amarra or something. Now I just use streaming exclusively while I wait for Schiit transport to play CDs again

        That's why the future of streaming is looking pretty shitty. It will only be Apple, Google and Amazon (the 3 worst services) - the ones who can leverage the membership towards other sales.

        While he makes good points, Apple Music is still a better user experience than Roon. Roon can't even reliably handle the metadata from Bandcamp albums.

        @rhythmdevils You're right, Apple and Amazon and Google are using these services as lead ins to their walled gardens. So of course Apple doesn't want you integrating with apps outside of their own ecosystem. Also, Roon's auto metadata loading is riddled with errors. Not a fan.

        Fernando did exactly that but he worked for UPS. A $10k ring was signed for by (my wife) aka Fernando as delivered. Long story short the UPS driver lost the package but forged a sig. UPS Super found the box in a day on the side of the road, it had fallen out of the open door making turn. your fired. Guess Fernando works for Fedex now.

        I'd recommend looking into the Asus BW-16D1X-U. From what I can tell, it's the external version of the Asus BW-16D1HT, which is the AccurateRip accuracy leader from the last DBpoweramp results I could find: https://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showthread.php?43786-CD-Drive-Accuracy-2019.

        Looked into this recently as I build an SFF PC and am not sure I'll be able to fit an internal drive into whatever case I end up with.

        I dont know if they sell them outside of Japan but the Pioneer one I have has been quite good. It is a little loud at times but it works really well and has never failed to read any CDs that were possible to read. Quite expensive though, think mine was about 90 dollars when I bought it a few years ago.

      I just installed the Final Edition of MrWalkman's ZX300 FW, plus Ext tuning package. FW has a bit of bass extension, not sure about UI improvement. Tuning has moar bass, maybe some extra SOS™

        You don't need to reset the settings, just turn the zx300 off and on again. Thats what mrwalkman recommends and from checking
        for region-specific features after reboot it seems to work just fine.

        Also I am uncertain if the region "sounds" are literal FR changes since most online measurements show the ZX300 to have a decently flat FR, but they do seem to change the sound. Maybe it's just different upsampling filters.

        @JK47 the bass extension could probably be achieved with EQ, but it sounds like something more than that. I don't have a lot of time to listen critically, so can't say much other than it's different and kind of better. It's reversible if you don't like it.
