        @Psalmanazar, yeahhhh, I forgot that the vocals were studio and other adjustments. To be honest, my favorite part of Unleashed is the cover. I have friends who will never admit that their idol is gay.

        Yeah I just finally got my own pair or Krk V6S4 and was checking out guitar tones on them yesterday because they’re big and no mid suckout like 8” monitors. Yep unleashed in the East tone sucks and They didn’t blend the reverbs

        This is interesting. I have zero complaints about the Focal headband and actually find it more comfortable than my ZMFs.

        The focal headband is very head-specific.

        Either you have the shape they designed around or it blows. I have the wrong head.

        Also when the cushion is worn you have to replace the whole headband, last i heard that was 900 bucks out of warranty.

        Yeah, $900 for a fing shitty headband blows. The problem with the Focals is they aren't good for people who have a lot of hair on their head. It caused too much hot points on my head.

      DSD SACD is good, but really Sony that you can't copy your backups.

        I'm so open to buy new crap on DSD, since there are times I prefer the mastering on that format. But nooo, you had to be Sony and ruined something great or at least "useful."

        Shouldn't say this, but I keep hold it in any longer. DSD isn't bad, just use it as another format to consider if there's an album you want with excellent remastering.

        At least for some albums you can buy the DSD file, but of course audiophile prices required. *Rant Over*

        @YMO I have met folks like that in S.F. audio shops before. The sales people see them coming from a mile away. They seem to know I’m looking for a good deal on demo equipment fast. Maybe it’s my laughing when they tell me the price.

        Well I probably qualify for old-fart status, but I've learned the value of 8 good watts into great high sensitivity speakers 80Hz and above, with active crossover into 800W below 80Hz into Big Woofers and carefully time aligning the system.

        Depends on what you have now. Sony, image-wise, is usually my choice as TV goes, not the best interface or sound but that i can live with. From what i see you already have a bunch of gear...save for vacations.

        The mountain sheep are sweeter,
        But the valley sheep are fatter;
        We therefore deemed it meeter
        To carry off the latter.
