      $700 from the butt doctor alone to tell me to stop eating spicy foods after insurance. Bleh and LOL. There goes my fun money.

        @YMO, I would have given you that advice for $500.


        All this reminds of of...

        "Doctor, whenever I move my arm like this, it hurts."

        "Well, don't do it, then!"

        But I think it is a British joke, so would have been free on the NHS.

        In spring of 1985, I did a motorbike trip from Victoria BC, through the Southern US and back up to Ottawa for a uni work term. I slept outside beside my bike outside of Sante Fe and woke up with my face completely swollen - couldn't recognize myself in the mirror of a McD's bathroom.

        Kinda freaking out, I went to a walk-in clinic and paid a doctor $100 to tell me to go buy some Benadryl (obviously, it was an allergic reaction to some kind of pollen or whatever).

        At least it isn't as expensive as their other "collab" headphones. I am curious if this is a whole new headphone they have made, or just an overpriced Elegia. Judging from the pads and looks seems to be new, but interested to see if this might be a new closed back that is slotted between the now discontinued Elegia and Stellia.

        Don't pay anything until they get the insurance billed correctly, and the insurance has settled their part first.

        Hospitals are happy to take the money no matter who's paying, and if you pay first then it's up to you to collect reimbursement from the insurance company.

        They’re going to send it over to their audit unit and figure out what’s wrong. And then they will contact the insurance company. I’m supposed to hear back sometime next week. Wish me luck. Looks like I won’t be buying any new gear for a while.

        @rott, 15+ years ago I had a "vintage" build going and picked up a Voodoo5 5500 to use in it. I let a friend borrow it to install in his dad's computer. Dad and mom got divorced and dad moved out and I never saw it again. Think early SLI started with them, right?

    Boring Back Office Banker dude, woo.

    My Preference is Warmish/Darkish Neutralish, if that even make sense (answer is no). I try to get to that goal by doing a Warm/Dark DAC with a more Neutralish Amp. Headphones will also do its thing on SQ, if I like it or not.

    Computer Desktop Setup:

    Note: This is for casual listening while on the computer, and when I Work From Home (WFH). So listening to random songs, 12 inch collections and also not really focusing on the album. Darker DAC being fed into a mostly neutralish amp.

    Thinkpad X260 via Roon or Foobar2000-UPnP > Schiit Eitr > Massdrop x Airist R-2R DAC (RDAC) > Zampotech SW51+

    Main Setup:

    Note: This is for serious album listening and being analytical on certain songs to compare mastering or understand song structure. With both the Computer Desktop Setup and the Main Setup I have two separate amps for two semi-different sound flavors/methods. Still good stuff, for me. Unlike the RDAC, I found Bifrost 2 to be on the Warm side with PI2AES. DNA Starlett is mostly a neutralish amp to me.

    Roon or UPnP > PI2AES [Coax Output] or Pioneer DV-79AVi DVD Player (CD Transport) [Toslink Output] > Schiit Bifrost 2 > DNA Starlett

    Headphones and IEMs: Senn HD600, Senn HD6xx, NuForce x Drop Move, Drop x JVC HA-FDX1, Sony WF-1000XM3, ZMF Auteur, Grado Hemp

    Portable Setups:
    Sony WM1A > Drop x JVC HA-FDX1
    Phone > Sony WF-1000XM3 mostly with sometimes NuForce x Drop Move
