      Hey, you or any of the other SBAFers with verified rigs wanna measure/listen to a K612? I have one coming and can send it around for a bit given they won't get much headtime with the amount of headphones I have ATM.

        I would be interested in giving it a try.

      Trump's fact checking in the debate was clear, strong and solid: "I did not say that".

        True. He probably took his blood pressure meds. He really needed a massive dosage of Adderall though. But then it wouldn't be Trump. And it wouldn't be fun.

        We're d00med. But at least one of the two candidates realizes that a U.S. government default on its debt is inevitable and is willing to broach the subject.

      Koss Porta Pro (black beauty) in the house. They are the real deal. Sound good.

        These are really good! I haven't measured them but they rock. A bit more laid back than the KSC75s me thinks. Much better build construction and portability. And it's black!

        I wanna try them too. But I'm kinda holding out for a new color. I know, I can't look at them while listening...

        On ebay they have all the colors. Minus the black with the nylon cable. I might recable mine with nylon. It's not expensive. I will measure proly tonight, but IMO they sound good.

        Thanks. Problem is space. I could put together a small HTPC. But later. I will have to convert some space in the kids toy room and put in there a small desk. Which may happen soon.

        Oh, this reminded me that I have to send in my old portapros from 2009 for a replacement. Left driver cut out a while back and I still haven't gotten to it yet.

      Created a 2000 tap FIR using LMS and HD600 FR. Applied using Foobar2k. FUCK! utterly revealing. Brighter than I'm used to.

        It's going to take time. Life gets in the way, and details as well. I was using an old set of measurement files which perhaps do not reflect well how I'm hearing things. Used new ones and the LMS needs adjusting. Not an excuse. It will get done. But family comes first.

        LOL! Nah here is the dealio, reverberation in my bedroom is pretty bad :-) . Even Guitar Center looks like an anechoic chamber relatively speaking. So I smooth things out to 1/12 and target flat. Algorithm does crazy shit. Then miniDSP apps act up. Finally get things going crossed at 80 Hz... and now the sub is not detecting sometimes, so might have to take it to 100 Hz again. FUCK! Might start a thread.

      MR5 MK3 is getting pushed out of Guitar Center. Will try to evaluate it more closely. Maybe do some JBL 305 compare. It's a shame.

      Anybody have experience with the Parts-Express Solstice? Looks like an interesting TL design (extended bass), w pretty high end drivers.
      1. ultrabike

        Meh. Different design (bass reflex), but the Amiga seems to have similar F3, though a little lower sensitivity. About same size and less than half the price. Wife said no, cuz Mackies. :(

      I frequently heard from older folks: "Why are young people always in a hurry?". I think it's because time goes faster as we get older.

        I am 27. I sometimes remember how little control I had over myself when I was a teenager. Between 13 and 19 years old I had too much energy and ran through life. Now, I prefer to walk more.

        I laughed at one of the deaths. I think I was the only one in the theater to do so. My wife's response afterward the movie was over, "You're weird." To which I replied, "So much raspberry jelly."

        After watching trailers I got an impression it was too childish and overhyped. You can't imagine the onslaught of people on me for saying this. Tho I understand hardcore Marvel fans, I don't understand adults finding it funny, but that's just me, humor is subjective.

        LOL! I didn't watch the trailers. I just saw it cuz some folks at work and my father-in-law told us to watch it cuz it was too funny.

        It was awesome :)
