  1. All boards are here and I am ready to start shipping the boards to the GB participants. I'll be using USPS Priority Mail for all US participants. All US GB participants please PayPal me $8.40 for the shipping charge. For international participants I will PM you the shipping charge after I have the package weighted at the post office. I have used first class mail without insurance and tracking in the past. Please let me know ASAP if you want to add tracking and/or insurance but be warned they are quite expensive options. I'll ship the package when I received your shipping payment

  3. In the olden days when I was in shape and training for races we would ride for 4+ hours, consume six liters of water and never need to pee. The temperatures would average 85+ but as long as you were moving you were OK. I used to fly into Phoenix airport periodically and it was a truely fun ride coming in during July and August. It felt like Mr Toad's wild ride.

  7. Ah - the good old battleship grey Cambridge Audio livery. It was panned by the reviewers, as were the buttons on the CD player (they described them as reminiscent of poking dead flesh). Very unfair, because the product performance and sonics were good. However the reviews killed that iteration of Cambridge Audio (~1990). We acquired the wreckage when I worked at Wharfedale, including a massive inventory of product, for almost pocket change (at least in a corporate sense). We sold the inventory at knock down prices, and then did nothing more than change the appearance to a dark gold colour, an

  8. Pandemic Project #54: re-case the Ventus. So, some quick history: I won the raffle Nate had back in the day for the TwistedPear Ventus. It has worked fine and I have enjoyed it for years but I wanted it in a different chassis. Over the years I bought parts here and there. The case came from VT4C. I had top and bottom panels made with venting and finally got it all reinstalled recently, only to set up a vicious game of chase the ground loop noise for myself. The setup is, otherwise, the same as the original setup with all the same parts, just transplanted into a different case. The only

  9. So far the Onyx Coffee Lab selections have been great. My favorite thus far of three I've sampled is the Columbian Rio Paez. Very forward apple note which is a treat. High quality stuff...thumbs up for the caffeine inclined.... HS

  10. The road biking is very popular in Reno. We have elevation and a lot of nice places for riding. It is not for me though, I will stick to things with motors. We actually cooled of here today and will still only be in the 70s tomorrow so back out onto the dirt bike. I don't know why I ride this trail. I wouldn't call it fun, but you do feel accomplished when you complete it.

  14. Yup, I watched the NPR's show yesterday. My favourite is her first album "Tomorrow is my Turn". Not sure I can make the live stream the 12th, thanks.

  17. I'm a big Rhiannon Giddens fan. I listened to this a few days ago, now again Looking at the health care personnel pics in that video I can't help thinking that it's been the same shit all the world around. Tough times, but as usual, only for some.

  19. Finally finished the installation of my AliExpress KGSSHV Carbon into a proper enclosure. I wanted to use a somewhat slim chassis so I skipped those taller ones (100mm+) and ended up with the Breeze Audio SD4309B. It's inexpensive (about $57) and has a pretty solid build. The internal space is just enough for the AliExpress/eBay Carbon PCBs, but a bit shallower than the transformers I have. I had to mill 1mm-deep 'pockets' on the bottom cover for the transformers to fit right below the top cover. I'm not a big fan of the heat spreaders so those sections of the PCB were cut off. Alumi

  21. Go over them again for me please. I know they've reworked the cable relief and have had channel balance problems to an unknown extent. I'm going to be buying one so long as it doesn't get overpriced like the new 700 amplifiers.

  22. I hope they change the freaking headband. The 007 Mk2 is one of the few headphones I straight up cannot wear. The self-adjusting headband strap is too tight and keeps pulling them out of place, and there is absolutely no articulation on the earcups at all, so they're never exactly right. Since the 007 is so fit dependent, I have to pretty much hold the earcups in place. Yeah, the 007 still sounds very good (modded, tweaked, etc) but if you can't use it, what use is it? Stax have a LOT of work ahead of them, and so far all we've seen is lackluster amps at twice the price they should be.

  24. The JB Champion reissue looks great, but something I didn't expect is that my hands have gotten bad enough (I have been diagnosed with neuro-sarcoidosis, and I have tremor and loss of sensation in my fingertips) that I can't get the thing to adjust when I'm wearing it. I'll happily send it to any Head-Case Speedy owner who would like it, just pay shipping. I used most of the adhesive lug protectors, so you would want to buy some of these.
