  1. I just put in an application for a two-bedroom townhome apartment a 5 minute walk from my office. I'm excited to move, and even more excited to be able to walk to work every day. Fingers crossed everything works out!

  2. Just got off a Zoom call with 3 friends, who I've known 56 years/43 years/35 years. It absolutely filled my heart. Haven't talked (voice) or seen a couple of them for over a year, and as with good friends we just kind of picked up where we left off. Love it!

  4. Finally, my mini T2 is completed. Just want to share my build experience and listening impression for those who are about to build one. Also, a huge shout-out for JoaMat, who conceptualised and designed the amp, provided me with invaluable tips when I was debugging my mini T2 and encouraged me to share my experiences here. -------------------------------- Pics or it didn't happen: -------------------------------- Build experience: Before this amp, I have built the Carbon and Grounded Grid, as well as quite a few dynamic amps including the SMD Dynalo.

  10. Set up my Rega in my son's room, on top of an Andover Audio Spinbase. But just picked up an ADL GT40a to listen via headphones, and do some vinyl rips. First up: Chameleonsvox, lead singer of my favorite band. Great 2 album live set on red and blue splatter vinyl, with bonus 7", CD's, poster, cards and more. Well-recorded too!

  11. Hi! i would like to share my work with you. I made an dynalo amp powered by grlv power supply and a pcm1794a/cm6631a dac. Everything is totaly made by me. I also designed the pcb nd ordered it from JLCPCB. Amp offset voltage stays at max +-1mV and it is totally silent. Case is DOUK AUDIO. pictures: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1a6cbGFpN6s5EadR8DA_lb21ZFwOwzK4R?usp=sharing

  15. I’ve been using fqpf8n80c with my miniature miniaturized (smaller than the group buy version) Golden reference supplies. I also have the negative supply GRHV79 working in there too. I always use the external current regulators now since they are much faster and actually protect the supply. Works great. I’ve got a lot of hours on these.

  17. I applaud this thread!!! On point 1 that James made, I am very guilty of helping cause this issue. I have mixed comments on the GRHV across threads for Blue Hawaii BJT, Carbon, and a few others as well. Just to make sure that it is almost impossible for anyone to learn from what I did. 😁 On point 2, I have tested 2 alternatives to the C2M1000170D, and both appear to work fine. One of them is pretty new and usually in stock: https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/?qs=vHuUswq2%2Bsy%2BS7yfkaWaCA%3D%3D Item on left is the one that is in stock. Item to the right is the al

  19. This is a repost of my impressions on another forum I've been using the ES-1a almost daily for about 4 months now. I feel that these are underrated and the audiophile community deserves to know them. Before I start my review, I just wanna declare that I have no conflict of interest with anybody in the headphone industry. I bought the ES-1a at the price of 12800HKD (1650USD) which is listed as the default price on ES Lab's web store. The ES-1a maker does not have prior knowledge about this review. A little bit about myself I like to listen to music - from pop to classical, from

  21. I couldn't stop listening to this yesterday I was using my SR-007's. It drives them very nicely. Very rich deep bass and good imaging / sound stage, which is usually where the 007's suffer without the proper amp. This was running this off of a bench supply at 11.1V and it was drawing .4A very consistently. The top board is the +/-300V supplies (with input EMI filtering) and the one below that is the bias supply set to 580V. Each amp section is 1" x 2" and each of the +/- PS sections are 1" x 1". Bias is a little wider.

  30. The Forstner flat-link came today. Adjustment is a little fiddly, but even I managed it without too much difficulty. I’m very happy with it. It’s a long bracelet (I took out six links), but has a short buckle, so it should work with a lot of wrist sizes. If anybody gets one, I would suggest sizing it slightly tight, as it has three expansion links. It feels like a well worn in vintage Jubilee bracelet, though obviously not as solid; it’s a modern interpretation of a shitty JB Champion, after all! The Forstner bracelets are much better made than anything JBC ever made, but retain the vintage c

  39. There are some negative reviews of the Sabrent box, so it makes me a little suspicious (it is also listed as out of stock on their website). I'd definitely have a backup of the data and test the RAID array if I got one – it doesn't seem to have any software so it's really up to your built-in macOS drivers. Also, there are some complaints the fan is loud. Their product page links to a different product on Amazon, the non-RAID version (DS-4SSD instead of DS-4RSS). I'm going to surmise that the RAID variant was too problematic so they discontinued it and they are selling the simpler, ch
