        So Wayne and Garth are going to a concert by the Wyld Stallyns? That is most excellent.

        New platforms for PC gaming are always welcome. If they can offer Steam level quality service and introduce new quality titles then this is only positive.

        It had good pace and a surprising moral ambiguity, which reminded me of the golden era of comic writing. A bit blunt, but with heart. Also now have crush on Brie.

        Imo, the current best VSS for PS4 is: PS4 (AC3) -> BlasterX G6 (optical out)-> your DAC. Since I also use it on the PC I dug out my WYRD to have power for the G6 all the time.

        What is AC3, mate? And how's the positional audio with the G6? Can I connect it to my amp instead of my dac? I don't need good dac for my movies and gaming.

        Dolby Digital 5.1. You need to set your PS4 to optical out and Bitstream (Dolby). Yes, you can also connect it to your amp since the G6 transfers the final mix over line out as well.

        I find the positional audio of SBX pretty good, the rear channels could use some slight work (they are better on the Mobius) but afaik its on the works. Make sure to update firmware to the latest version.

        Meh.. I hadn't heard of it at all but just stumbled across it on Netflix. I turned it off after 15 or 20 mins. Just too hoaky. I love a good movie with quirky characters but this is no Snatch or Fight Club.

        Toe-in can be a necessity for small rooms without wall treatments when you want to spread your speakers out as wide as possible - helps to minimize early reflections. I use toe-in with extreme prejudice!

        I was just being smug. My room is treated and my speakers sounds best when firing straight or Toe-in with 45degree angle. Only now I tested it myself.

      Stagediver SD5 has better tonality and less shouty uppermids than the PP8. Bass might be a tad to much. Maybe. Also fits my ears.

      Prophile 8 is an excellent sounding IEM. Unfortunately no amount of tip-rolling gives me a comfortable fit. Stagedivers are not a problem.

        Quick comparison last night with the DigiOne was that the DigiOnesounds smoother and less upfront. Bass digs deeper too.

        For me it's not so much about the size…I can't stand to see the pixels. Before the 200+ ppi screens, I used an Acer 1920x1200 24" that was dense enough you wouldn't see'em.

        I use Andromeda regularly in office and during commute. It isolates well, can be removed easily with the right tips (at least for me), quite comfortable for 3-4 hours of use (again, with the right tips), and sounds pretty damn awesome. From what I've read here, TH-00 series don't isolate well and let out quite a bit of sound - might be a dealbreaker for some.

        In a word, yes. I have TH-X00EB + Cavalli LC, and Andro + Fiio X5G3, and I reach for Andro way more often than TH-X00EB. (Edit: at work, with semi-regular interruptions)
