  3. The bench and chairs combo makes perfect sense and acomodates a flexible seating arrangement. I attempted a pre-storm ride to recover conditioning while maintaining social distancing...things did not go as planned. Thank you National Weather Service.

  4. It's A-OK. I have had literally years worth of photos waiting to be worked with that I had just been too busy to do anything with until this recent pause.

  6. Last night about 30 people in our neighborhood managed to socially-distantly gather near a neighbor's house. The mom is a nurse, and volunteered to help in ICU with the COVID-19 patients. Thankfully she had plenty of PPE she said, but still a risk of course. We all cheered and clapped as she drove in the neighborhood. Their daughter, somewhere out West, was on Facetime with her dad, and she was balling. She's supposed to get married in early August, plans are certainly TBD now.... There are so many wonderful and amazing people in this world, and I'm thankful for them all!

  8. A milestone of my rare stax hunt: Quattro II🤪 So basically its a third-party CDP with a enlarged chassis, a very sophisticated power supply + DAC . They have separate power supplies for left and right channel as well as the digital section. The CD section has a plastic case but it is put in another aluminium case and on a wood base where the dac section is located. The CD pickup is Sanyo sf-88. Before the aged parts are replaced, The CDP sounded very neutral, fatigue-free with a special sense of spaciousness, but there was no real bass and dynamic. Then tho

  9. You just triggered me into listening to their album that's been getting the most listens here over the last year. Will the minor Little Creatures eventually become my favorite? I never really liked it on release (or the couple decades after).

  10. I posted a Chinese version of this article several months ago and now I translated it and put it here. I guess some people here will be interested. I hope you like it. Actually I have some more articles like this pending but I just don't have the time to write it up. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It all started about a year ago that a second hand sr-omega popped up in the local community. From time to time omegas show up on markets around the world but this one is different: an omega

  13. The Speedplays were chosen for the lateral freedom while putting the hammer down on the climbs. After two ACL reconstruction surgeries I felt this was the safest choice. You can;t really see it in the low light of the pic but the dark areas show off the carbon fiber really nicely which match the CF on the handlebars, seat post and fork. Old school but still cool me thinks.

  18. Side 1—along with side 1 of King Crimson’s Red—is one of my favourite album sides of all time. And the sequencing—especially the way those last four tracks slow down—is just sublime. I think of it every time the concept of sequencing comes up.

  21. I used two transformers. both with electromagnetic shields, static shields and potted from http://www.mueller-rondo.com/kontakt.htm . (The low voltage transformer can be used for the blue hawaii - the 6922 windings are just not used the other voltages and currents are fine.) low voltage: transformer two windings 6.3V 4.5A for EL34 heaters one winding for each channel NOTE these windings are -400VDC to ground two windings 6.3V 1.5A for 6992 heaters one for each channel and my HT delay board two windings 15.5V 0.4A for golden reference LV board + and - 15VDC h

  22. Qobuz is $15 and Amazon His Res $14 of that matters. It’s a price/convenience/music discovery question I suppose. Qobuz and Tidal have a free month trial if you want to give them a spin.

  27. I've done this a number of times, but on 1oz copper. I used a stencil with an oven, which really helps. I've also de-soldered and re-soldered them. Another way is if you let the paste melt on the board first without the chip and then apply flux and heat, you'll be sure to have the right amount of solder on the pads.

  36. Lily still loves cooking shows and recently has been bugging me to have a cake-off with her. It was my turn this weekend to make my cake for judging. She helped me in preparation for making her cake next weekend. It's a chocolate cake with dark chocolate frost and chocolate ganache and raspberry filling between each of the three layers of cake, topped with more frost and ganache. It was fun to make, I'll report back with how. it tastes later. Maybe not professional grade, but at least the flour that I buy at the grocery store is going to good use. I rode 30 miles to prepare for th

  38. Here's my KGSSHV build to offset all the fantastic, professional-looking ones posted in this thread (milling your own front plate?!). I had an old computer case lying around, so used that as the chassis. Thanks a lot to Spritzer. I started with his kit and BOM, and then exchanged about a hundred emails with him. I lowered the values of the pull-down resistors on the amp boards to eliminate hum. Other than that, the thing worked the first time. The player is a HiBy R6Pro, and I'm listening with Koss ESP/95X phones from Massdrop.

  40. Now for something pretty rare... the ESP900... This is the closed back version of the ESP950 made for medical use such as MRI's etc. Not much is known about these and only a few sets have ever surfaced. I'll do a more indepth post about these when I modify them and dig into them a bit. Stock...well...they don't sound good. The earpads are unique to these so when you press them to the head...the sound gets better but it is no 4070...that's for sure.
