      Building my system up again, slowly. Do you guys have a recommendation for interconnects in the EU (€20-50 per cable)?

        If the Schiit Pyst RCAs are any indication, Straightwire is of good quality and not super expensive. Their dealer network includes a few in the EU; might be worth a look.

        Chose to order some Canare L-4E6S cables and Neutrik NF2 CB-2 connectors, after a shit ton of down the rabbit hole reading. Straightwire was way too expensive when I spoke to them and asked for recommendations. Thanks for the suggestions, guys!

        If anyone wants the old amp (for free of course) for a project or something, let me know - you probably just have to replace the filter caps.

      Amazes me to see how many metal bands are adding ambient or orchestral parts to their music. So cool, didnt imagine this 10 years ago
      1. Psalmanazar
        Psalmanazar
        Burzum and Beherit have had ambient parts since the early 90s... these modern band are just shit with no creativity at writing guitar riffs. Metal is guitar music so you better be able to write Demonomancy or Key to the Gate before you add in gimmicks...

        Just need to write this down and remember because I've been looking for "better" speakers for some weeks now, scouring through forums and used listings but realized I wasnt really even using what I had. Need to stop and sit back

        I have been curious about them...an IEM over ear hybrid should have excellent isolation at the very least.

        These IEM's don't really fit as proper ones, it's a very shallow fit. Also the bass is enhanced by a motion feedback driver of some sort. Surprisingly enough, the isolation wasn't that good, compared to say the newest Sony cans. That ear measurement gimmick did improve the sound, but I can't really tell how much it was due to a measurement and how much due to a nasty EQ default setting.

        I use Radsone EarStudio ES-100 with my Pixel XL (LDAC bluetooth). I think it sounds better than the headphone jack w/ my Andromeda. The thing is impressively small, which I find to be convenient.

        Well, i think i had issues with the measurement setup i was using (so even a nearfield measurement right up to the cone wouldn't help me figure anything out), because I went by ear and to me the roll off sounded like it began at 41Hz so I guess that's not too bad but I can only tell how things change when I try it in another room which I haven't had the time to do.

        Yeah i dont expect things to be easy, but so far I've only had one of my two neighbors complain once, and that was when the music was so loud that I literally said "sorry, gimme a minute I can't hear you over the music" when she came by to complain :p

        So yeah, I'm trying to make sure I never really start the complaints, it's always the case that once that gate opens up there's no going back.

        Good luck with blocking out 20 Hz. I think using sand is probably the only way to go, and highly impractical.

        Yeah I'm looking to minimise, not completely block. Not going to spend that much effort. Plus, most of my audio is music (rock/metal/jazz/etc) so I dont expect to be putting out waves that low

        It seems either way has issues based on what I've seen/heard. Pay the fee and they usually side with the seller.. Use the gift payment method with a CC, they do a chargeback and PayPal just takes the money from you to give it back to them

        To give context - this just happened to a friend who shipped an amplifier from the Netherlands to someone in Eastern Europe. Because it smelled a little scammy we thought it was safest going the gift route in case they made a false claim but apparently not.

        Paypal will almost always side with the sender of money during a gift dispute. Or, well, that's what a lot of furry artist drama taught me.

        Also, getting "gift money" on regular intervals (as in, not using business transactions for business) will result in a swift investigation closure.

        Not that 3 euros (9 -> 12 euros) is a deal breaker, I'm just surprised about such a large relative variation

        Irrespective of the price it sounds just crap. Mods do tighten the bass but midrange onwards it sounds really bad.
        Of all cheap options only ksc75 has sounded worthy .
