        They showing it off at CanJam Shanghai and THE Show this weekend. Prototypes were floating around for certain press last month at Munich show and seems like sentiment was positive. Will hear it this weekend.

        Sound quality aside, I am concerned about durability of these if you have to put the magnetic cups on them when not in use. And yes, it looks like that shitty Deva Pro had a threesome with current Susvara and Audivina

      Sent my Jot R for repair last year and local amp guru only finished it now. He's lending me some 2A3s for the Stellaris though so all good.

      Pretty sure I'm not the only one pairing these, but the Holo May and the Stellaris have really good synergy.

        Jollibee in the Philippines has gotten much worse over the years, it's sad. Theories are that they're investing more in foreign ventures to try and win them over. The local stuff is a shadow of what it used to be. Basically just breaded bones.

        @Lyander if you mean they are trying to invest Jollibee North America, they are sucking at it (at least the one near me). Sub-par service and bland food now. Mango Peach Pie, however, always on point - the only consistent good.

      First time trying out new audio gear for a year. Tried the HEDDphone 2 and LCD-5. I liked the HEDD more than the Audeze.

      My Stellaris has been shipped out. Been satisfied with my headphones and haven’t had the itch for new gear but this is exciting af.

        "Did you read Amir’s Susvara review? Can’t stand him. He has some objective tests but never gets the whole picture. Misses the subjective ear. Also I feel his tests are sometimes flawed. Compares the Susvara to a $20 IEM lol."

        What do you mean, you get distortion at a perfectly normal listening volume of 114dB. Truly indicative of the average Susvara listening for Amir.

        Haven't we seen references to very high-volume listening levels before? If he wasn't deaf previously, he must be now.

        "Somwhat flawed..." Outside of his cult circle, this is probably one of nicer things that has been said about Amir and his modus thingami.

      As much as I'm annoyed by the Chord aesthetic, I find myself looking at the Mscaler just for upscaling purposes to pair with the May.

        Waaaayy of topic, but until coming back from my hiatus here, I had no clue HQplayer was used by audiophiles and quite good on sound quality. I had been using it in my job as a method to containerize 128 kbps mono audio for overhead commercial music and host the music player on a shared server in the commercial environment.

        Same here. I don't really want to mess around with figuring out HQ Player and its zillion different settings. It'd be nice just to have a box do it seamlessly. But the Mscalar is $$$. If the likes of Schitt or Emotiva came up with their version, I'd be on it with a quickness.

      Going back to Japan in December. Won another concert lottery. This time for the iDOLM@STER and Love Live! Uta Gassen at Tokyo Dome.

        @Vtory Thanks! I would agree. The lottery system is very unfriendly esp to foreigners. After the pandemic, they only increased the difficulty of getting tickets, with things like face scanning and e-registration. Luckily for this concert, they opened a few slots for foreign fans and I was fortunate to have gotten in. I personally look forward to seeing Liella! and Aqours the most.

        @insidious meme I used to follow Aqours around a lot back in 2017-2019. Went to all their major concerts in Japan (until Love Live Fest), but that was prior to the current system of e-registration and mandatory face scans. I used to buy the tickets off resale sites, but cases of scalping have gotten pretty bad esp for mainstream artists to the point where the government had to step in.

        Well you weren't as nuts as some of the fans who followed that tour from LA on July 4 to Fukuoka on July 7 and 8 2018. I hate scalping, and it's gone bonkers esp for major tours. Someday, enough people will get sick of it to keep it in check. Someday.

        Been to a lot of weeb events/concerts/etc before myself. Really to me I get annoyed how bad the mixing can be or just how messed up the acoustics are. Few events recently I been were decently mixed well but there is the caveat that the event was at actual theaters or venues.

        For timbre-heads, I think it does quite well smoothening out that metallic tinge. I think this was my biggest takeaway in terms of positives. That said, the downsides are, you are giving up some of that dynamism, punch and most importantly, ultimate resolution. It's warmpoo, but synergistic warmpoo. For the price though, I'd rather go with EC.

        Clear + DSHA-3F(N). You don’t need to spend more. Actually, a SW51 would do too. And even a Vali 2. Yeah you can be satisfied at different price points.
