  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!

  4. 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!

  8. Thanks everyone! 60 came in with a vengeance today. Unfortunately not in a fun way. As Al posted elsewhere, it turns out that I got Vertigo for my 60th Birthday! Today was the roughest of the last few days, but I'm very happy to have a diagnosis. I have meds and an appointment for lab work to follow up, so feeling good about that. All of that said, the best thing you can ever hope to get on your Birthday is the best friends a guy could ever hope for! Once again Al has completely taken care of me in a scary medical situation. I really did win the friendship lottery when I met all of y

  10. 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.

  12. Like I'm sure all of you, my favorite memories of this hobby are all people-oriented, with headphone-related gear just excuse to get together, but my favorite headphone memories, sometimes with people whose names I no longer remember, are almost all early and Sennheiser-related. Those first Grado v. Sennheiser online debates, showing up to a meet with a pair of CD3000s when everyone else had HD580/600s, blind-testing after-market cables I couldn't then really afford over drinks, starting to understand just how much Senns could grow with a... Singlepower amp, the first time time I was in a room

  14. It's probably not going anywhere. Various iterations were either unstable or too noisy. Circuit boards for the Raal experiment (code named "Bridgeport") have been ordered. I should know more about that in a few weeks. Also, there is some thought to doing a very small run of a 10 year anniversary version of the L2. The basic circuit would remain the same, but there are a few changes that should serve as an upgrade to the original.

  15. 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.

  21. Threw together a scrap wood shooting board for the 62. Did the whole Rob Cosman build with the tape to keep glue up from warping the mdf. Seemed to work well.

  27. Not sure my current power hookup would support that. On the wall. Posted to one of my Facebook groups and I got 15 request in the first 20 minutes. I really need that AD951 now.

  31. 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.

  37. Short note to let you know that due to lack of resources, one of the largest Yes fan sites offering loads of bootleg recordings from Yes concerts, will go offline in July. They are hosting about 3TB of Yes music. Were you interested https://yessongs.nl/

  38. This reminds me of an old joke: Two Italian fisherman are out at sea during WW2...one looks over, sees what he thinks is a periscope, and says "Is that a u-boat?" The other replies, "No, that's not-a my boat"
