Sony 1000xm3 sounds so bad holy shit...too much bass with annoying treble peak Dec 6, 2019

      I would like to purchase the DNA amp. I am fairly new to this site but am on USaudiomart.com and was a long time audiogon member. I will pay shipping and PayPal fee. I am in NYC 11208.

      Currently run LCD X V281 with Bitfrost MB. also have a HD 800 Super dupont mod which I would like to try with tubes.


      regards Rene

        @Mithrandir41 I'm beginning to think it's just that the shoutbox function (esp when posting directly on someone's profile) is easily mistaken for private conversations by some for whatever reason, given how often this seems to happen. Maybe I'm being too nice but at the same time, shoutbox is pure noise anyway, otherwise I'd be less active on here :P

        @Gaspasser I haven't had too much time with it, but I like it with the Sony MA900. 3F easily kills the Sonett side by side, but my main rig is currently with @ChaChaRealSmooth haha (Sorry I can't give you a more fleshed out response :( )

        Korean Parasite? Hah yeah, it's one heck of a trip really. I've yet to rewatch it, but I don't think I'm up for one just yet even though it's been a while since I last saw it :))

        The seeing sex scenes with family thing happened with me a few times too many. Cringe.

        @Lyander highly, highly recommended. one of the more unique animes I've watched in a long time. Story starts off with a simple premise and becomes more fascinating each episode.

        The simple premise is what made me lose interest, haha. Then again, probably should've given it a chance since I loved A Place Further than the Universe, which also has a pretty simple premise. Alrighty, giving it a shot when I can.

        @pure5152 basically everyone gets turned into stone one day and the modern world reverts back to Stone Age/nature. After many many years later, protagonist and few others wake up from it and tries to advance the world back with scientific knowledge. (obviously more to it than this, but didn't want to spoil much)

        I cannot forgive Sennheiser for discontinuing this headphone. Few headphones convey the low end as well as these. Also quite easy to maintain. Get your spare parts and you are good for a long time...

        @Deep Funk Yeah they should make this instead of HD700 and HD820 lol where do you find the spare parts? I do want to get some spare pads and foam inserts.

        Thomann for instance. Also directly from Sennheiser. Cables are not difficult but foams and ear pads are very important. Good thing the HD250 II Linear was made for daily use in broadcasting so it is quite durable.

        Yikes. I've had about 40 transactions over there (buy & sell), never had a problem like this; must've gotten bad recently.
        Though one time I bought from a guy who didn't ship to me for like two weeks. Saw recently was also an executed member here with a custom warning tag. Ha.

        All of my college friends are either done with MCAT or already in med school so I had trouble finding people to study with. After some thoughts, I decided to join a local, online study buddies group through reddit to keep each other motivated. Hopefully this will keep the fire going for ~2 more months.

        Burnout is definitely real. MCAT bites ass because it's not something you can take whenever you're ready so you have to be really anal about managing your schedule in order to fit as many sanity-aids in while keeping a clipping pace going through material, but it's definitely doable.

        You come across as diligent and resilient, I don't doubt that you'll do your best come exam time.

        @fraggler yep! ep.19 though.... the formula isn't new, but this is what I would consider Shonen anime done right. I was going to wait till the next season, but I kept getting spoiled in the comments, so I just decided to read it.
