        Briefly had TG16 (traded for Genesis) Had the weird pack in, and Legendary Axe -- really liked that game (and remember the carts were credit cards!). R-Type is awesome.

        Unfortunately Galaxy Buds mic (gen 1) sucks butts too, decided to stick with the laptop haha. Almost tempted to use phone but overheating is scary.

        Found out too late about the drunk meet, but I was dead asleep anyway. I'm afraid to ask what I missed lol.

      Not seeing the appeal of Airist RDAC > ZDT Jr > HD6xx. Too Warm from Amp and too Dark from DAC. HD600 is the better choice here folks.

        Nah, I was expecting it to be too much with the HD6xx. I have my own tastes like yours. I have the HD600s on right now, and this is a good match since it reduce any possible treble issues people have with the HD600.

        I like the HD600, Elex, HD800, etc. with that combo. HD6XX would need to be modded for less midbass for that chain to work IMO.

        @purr1n agreed. I had a feeling before hearing that the Darkness and Warmness was going to make me say meh on HD6XX. HD600 other hand was better. Here's a not too much of a shocker: Mangi 3+ with RDAC is more flexible with my stuff than ZDT Jr. 2D Stage yeah, but gotta like New Order with the JVCs with the chain.

        @famish99 I'll need more time to really give you the data, but so far the treble region is dark like the color of the DAC. Black Frost 2 in treble is slightly warm but doesn't even pull things back like the Airist. If that make sense. I'll play more with it.

    Boring Back Office Banker dude, woo.

    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 neturalish 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. Two separate amps for two different sound flavors/methods.

    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, Campfire Audio Andromeda, NuForce x Drop Move, oBravo Cupid, Drop x JVC HA-FDX1, Sony WF-1000XM3, ZMF Auteur

    Portable Setups:
    Sony ZX2 > Drop x JVC HA-FDX1 or oBravo Cupid
    Sony WM1A > Campfire Audio Andromeda (inside the house, normally)
    Phone > Sony WF-1000XM3 mostly with sometimes NuForce x Drop Move
