I ended up just buying a used car. It was owned by an old couple who kept unusually good care of it, so I'm hoping this last years. Jan 8, 2024

      My car engine hydrolocked within a month of me replacing it. Now I'm having to cancel the Atrium order for now. :/

        Much more likely to be an internal coolant leak than anything at all to do with fuel. Sorry to hear about that, good luck!

        A leaking fuel injector can cause a hydrolock, if it's bad enough. It leaks while the engine is shut off and can fill the cylinder. The O2 sensors are not involved.

        Whatever the cause or the words, that's one dead engine there. Sorry.

      So, since last September, I've been going to gym 6 days a week twice a day. 390 lbs (~53% body fat) to 285 at 22% BF (from DexaScan).

        Awesome to hear! I got a water rowing machine and have lost about 75-80 lbs rowing about 5 days a week. I feel so much better and healthier. My knees don't hurt all the time now. I wish I'd done it years ago.

      Ever since I heard the H1K and HE-X (which I liked,) I haven't heard any other egg-shaped Hifiman's that I've liked.

        @joch the Susvara driver is round like an HE6, and sounds very different from an HE1000.

      I'm slowly getting back into the hobby. It's been about 6 months since my wife died, so I've been a bit checked out since then.

        My condolences to you and your family. Words seem inadequate to describe the intense feelings of such a loss. May the wonderful memories of your time with your wife never fade.

      So I got a K9 Pro ESS. I'm pleasantly surprised. It doesn't have the usual ESS issues and the THX amp doesn't sound ded.

        I can't see myself paying that much for a THX.

        This is a special case tbh. Fiio took the THX Chips and designed their own. It still has characteristics of a THX amp, but it's not as sterile and actually has dynamics.

        I wish I could hear one. I absolutely love how the Fiio E10K Type C pairs with the Moondrop Kato and Starfield. I prefer it over the Schiit Fulla by alot. But then again, the Fiio K3 was hot garbage.

      Too bad Hedd swiped the "flagship quality way below flagship price." It should be applied to the Borealis.

        Hedd is hype flagship,build quality and materials are not, sound is almost there but not quite.

      One of the quotes on the HEDDphone's page says it's flagship quality way below flagship price. But it's $1900.

        For IEM pricing the argument makes more sense since not that long ago the most expensive IEMs you could buy were well below the $1,000 mark, and now $2,000 is kind of normal as far as MSRP goes. But big cans? The best of the best has always come with big price tags.

        ^Its not that its a high price. Its that at that price they are not calling it a flagship product/way below flagship price. My personal interpretation of flagship price is >1500 usd (which will have to change soon because some manufacturers are just increasing the price of their flagship rather than lowering the cost of the previous flagship and replacing it).

        On the other end of the argument there’s the Sony MDR-R10, which was cancelled and never given a successor.

        A gentleman who couldn't get into the group buy on the NH discord wanted to buy mine as I mentioned, after hearing the nos filter, that I wanted to explore that a bit. Then it snowballed into me realizing I could look for a used Yggdrasil for a bit. If that didn't turn up anything, id just get the Spring DAC lvl 2.
