        Too many people are in a panic, we need to put our volumes up to 11 and need to laugh at the situation. I need it.

      As a reminder: It is ok to listen to guilty pleasures.

        No such thing in my book. Guilty pleasures are just things you like that are outside of your usual sphere... maybe even most other people's, as well. All music that makes you feel something is worth appreciating.

        It doesn't define you, yanno? Too many people are afraid to like what they like and miss out on too much good music. I was that way for a long time. And then I looked back on the wasted years.

        It was in such a move-worn state, once, that I turned on the TV, to watch anything... and discovered the 40-odd-episode serialisation of the Indian epic Mahabharat. And got addicted to it.

        If you can hire Atlas, do it. My previous move took 8 hours with 5 guys and all they did was load and unload. This last move Atlas packed, loaded, unloaded and unpacked in about 10 hours (not including travel) with 3 guys.

        Recently moved my mom into assisted living. The new community included the movers as a free bonus, and they did everything! Didn't just move the furniture, but they packed the closets, cupboards, drawers etc, and then unpacked it all in the new suite. Don't know what they paid for that service, I'm sure it was not cheap, but man did it save me a lot of stress!

        Obviously @E_Schaaf specializes as the underwear salesman to pay the bills.

        I went away from the 650 because I'm struck by curiosity and luckily had this forum to belp guide my 'to audition' list, and made purchasing decisions after. It still gets used however.

        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.

    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
