      Revisiting high school thrash days, listened to Sepultura - Arise last night. I remember discovering them on Headbangers Ball.

        Quite the contrast to the Clive Davis documentary on Netflix that I watched right before. Talk about industry colossus.

      For metal music I'm looking for headphones that have speed and accurate timbre a la Verite - what are good cheaper alternatives?

        I already have HD6x0, Auteur, and LCD-X. LCD-X I enjoy but I'm looking for more accurate timbre/high-frequency.

        @DigMe i agree 100% but many skip starting with the basics and go straight for the easy way out. And this is not with just kids but in general, a more holistic approach is probably more beneficial in the long run than trying to find bandaids for everything. Speaking as a former special needs kid who did not receive what was needed and had to clean up the mess left as an adult.

      The Irishman was great, fantastic acting. Not sure how MCU fans & directors can criticize Scorsese's stance on what is real cinema.

        MCU is easily junk food. Fun, very fun, but not for those seeking refined taste. Refined sugars maybe, but making that joke is a massive stretch on its own haha.

        This is on my list to check out, glad it seems to be great!

        All this BS is so blown out of proportion. Cinema is a moving picture on a movie screen, full stop. Whether Scorsese likes a certain genre or type of storytelling is irrelevant. There was escapist entertainment before him, and there will be after him.

        I think it's fair of Marvel to reject the idea of Scorsese getting to define what constitutes 'Real Cinema'. And The Irishman is an accomplishment, no doubt, but there are Marvel movies I personally enjoyed more.

      ECP DSHA3 is way out of budget, so wait for new Schiit balanced amp, Headamp GSX mini, or used Auralic Taurus MKII? The schiity wildcard...

        If that's the best i can do for a balanced SS amp in that price tier, then will strongly consider the Phonitor E. Does "not a truly balanced design" have meaningful consequences? Feeding from Gungnir Multibit. Scouring the threads...

        One of my best friends (we went to Tool together \m/!!!) went to their last concert in NL. He keeps bringing it up. That concert was so wild even an mosh-pit veteran like him went: "not joining in this time..." I wish I could have been there.
