  1. The images this statement conjures up are just too distracting.

  4. It might be a little premature but I think I now have a working T2 using a modified version of joamat's staxt2nc3fdh7 amp files and kgsshv dc supplies.... Initial startup looks good. Channels started up seperately. Heater transformer running at full voltage. High voltage transformer on a variac. virtual batteries within 100mV of 740V before any adjustment. DC balance between + and - sides of a channel <1V without any adjustment, all 3 leds lit on both channels. once my hands stop shaking I will take a few photos... I have been dreading switch on... in the meantime here's a few bu

  8. This one came to an end this week as I finally got round to turning the amp on and testing it. Busy summer and all that but here is what this should have been in the first place: Old school KGSSHV build only using the input sockets on the back, that swanky gold IEC and the volume control. The rest was all garbage...

  9. Did I miss the memo? Did we somehow run afoul of the curse of the pharaohs or trigger the plagues of Egypt? The sky here is orange this morning. I've never seen anything like this. It looks like planet Arrakis from Dune. The spice must flow!

  10. For future reference, most taxi drivers carry a Slim Jim. As long as you can provide proof of ownership, they'll unlock your car for a nominal fee. Almost always cheaper than a locksmith. Cops will generally do it free, but on their time frame. I have always been a fan of carrying an extra door key in my wallet.

  16. Thanks and they look good. For others searching, although it’s a little out of date, Wirecutter has a breakdown of models capabilities. So many do nots. https://www.nytimes.com/wirecutter/reviews/best-usb-c-cables/

  18. For "plain" USB-C cables, I like the Anker Powerline (in general, their cables seem to be pretty decent for aftermarket). If you're going to need a Thunderbolt connection or will need to charge a MacBook, you'll want to opt for a higher-rated cable.

  21. Well, that ended up being a lot less painful than I thought. I started the day thinking I was going to buy memory foam but I ended up hating them. I bought the Natural Mattress Stretch recommended. The latex just felt right immediately compared to the 7-8 different brands/types I tried. It was towards the reasonable end of what I had budgeted for too so that didn’t hurt either. Shout out to the tall man. I would never have heard of the company/brand if you hadn’t brought it up in this thread. I also decided to make the switch from queen to cal king. I’ve had a queen since I fi

  37. Listening now. I actually like it. I would typically assume a Dusty recommendation comes with vampire squirrels and random beep boops out of tune and timing.

  38. This weekend I flew down to Bangkok to meet the man himself, Wachara. For me the the entire RR1 Project was a dream - to develop a fully in-house Headphone with Bespoke parts specific to the Headphone and to meet my Heroes along the way. RR1 has enabled me to meet some of the greatest people in the Industry worldwide and that's the only success I see in the Headphone. Everything else to me is irrelevant. With Wachara, I've met all the Heroes I wanted to meet and that ends the RR1 chapter for me. Kaldas was named after my Grandfather and our goal with the company has always been qui

  39. I'm in for the latter, one of the few to get the honor of my ignore list here. I can only take a certain amount of inane ramblings... Now some impressions, system has changed a bit since last time as I got a Denafrips Terminator DAC plus it is now fed by a Kimber KS-2436 silver USB cable...not that it matters and I only got it to prove that point but it's there. Amp is a stock Carbon which does look rather nice with the black aluminum Stax plug on these. They are certainly even more inefficient than the 007's but the Carbon drives them with ease. In fact I'm not even at 12 o'c
