    OK, fired up the BHSE for the first time in months and listened to this new Tool album quite loud and my conclusion was I should get back into this headphone shit.

    Thanks everyone, I actually posted the wrong image - I was comparing last year to this year - but nonetheless, yes, very happy with how things went. The time quoted in the image includes all stops, including time to help a friend change a flat. Moving average was 18.6mph. Correct Ride Data

    Not today, but yesterday. Completed the Kelly Brush Century for the second year running. Trained hard, cut about 30min off my previous time and had a ton of fun with the same group of guys that I've been doing these rides with for the last 7 years.

    They probably don't have many followers here but I recognize that I like Morten Harket's vocal record quite a bit at the same time I like listening to his music while I'm doing things.

    iPhone 11 Pro Max is a bit of a mouthful but OK, I'm in. I mean, 4-5 hours more battery life -- what? https://www.apple.com/iphone-11-pro/ Upgrade from a comparable (256GB) Xs Max is $649 after trade-in if anyone else might be interested. There's an option to finance at 0% APR for 2 years, which comes to $27.04 a month. Guessing a lot of folks out there will jump on the latter?

    Is the GS-1 anything like the Gilmore Lite Mk2 voicing-wise? I find the GL2 to be dead neutral, with excellent technicalities, but the Utopia leans a bit to the bright side, and could really use a warm and lush signal path. In my system right now (with M51 as source) it sounds very clear, punchy, spacious, and detailed, but also a bit dry and a bit analytical.

    Cocteau Twins are always one of my top listens, I "go" to them periodically and run through a lot of their output.... Another fave of mine, a little more mellow and ambient, is Victorialand. Not as cool/freaky/spacey as Treasure, but a good listen when you're in a do-nothing mood or when you need something not TOO distracting while you work.

    Hi All. Poping in from wherever the hell I've been. Posting in this thread because I'm mostly listening to the Uptopias these days and they're a bit of an odd load impedance-wise....... I've been threatening to try a solid-state amp for, well, years now. Without ever having done anything about it. A conversation over the weekend reanimated the idea. I'm seeking nominations for a SS amp that would work well with the Utopias - low Z out, quiet, don't need a ton of gain - that could be gotten for a small amount of money (<$1,000) since I have no idea if this is just a lark or not. And I suck at selling things, so said amp might be sitting in my rack, used or not, for quite some time. Doug's DSHA 3F is an/the obvious choice, but out of my experimental price range. It wouldn't hurt if the candidate amp had power to drive inefficient planars, as well. There is a Headamp GS-1 offered for sale elsewhere. The owner wants to bundle it with a pair of headphones that I need like I need to run a 3/8" Speedbor through my skull diagonally. If I can convince him to un-bundle, that seems at first blush like it might work. And Justin's work is beyond reproach. So there's that. Any thoughts?

    Another one lives... this one is sbeylos. Haven't listened to it yet. I was doing current draw testing here. Without heatsinks: 275mA AC. With heatsinks: 249mA AC. Bias was around 15mA (~300mV across the 20R). Heatsinks should keep that in check.

    And another biggie, Robert Frank is dead at 94. “He believed that photojournalism oversimplified the world, mimicking, as he put it, ‘those goddamned stories with a beginning and an end.’”
