  1. Started "Hacks", which has proved an enjoyable & a light-hearted palate cleanse after "Mare...". Jean Smart is great, again. An easy watch.
  2. "The Nevers" is fantastic. Another Whedon masterpiece that will probably go down before it's time.
  3. Re: "Mare of Easttown", it's well-worth watching, if you are up for the basic premise/subject. The first episode is horribly depressing, and almost dissuaded me from sticking with it. But it hits a stride quickly & doesn't have unnecessary filler. I thought I had it figured out, but did not see the ending coming. Winslet turns in a great performance. Supporting cast is good too. Probly even better binging, than week-to-week.
  4. Happy Birthday Rob!
  5. ^Sigh...Jessica Walter was a formative crush after seeing "Play Misty For Me". Also, George Segal passed on the 23rd, age 87.
  6. I've only heard the Utopia at one meet. At the time, it sounded quite good - detailed while not "too" anything FR-wise. Not peaky, and I don't like peaky these days. To compare to something else, maybe...a properly fitted Qualia 010 with more satisfying bass? Although this was out of a Woo Audio tubed headphone amp (dunno which one) fed by a Lampizator DAC with a tubed output stage. So the upstream components could certainly have mitigated/masked (tomAto/tomahto) any peakiness of the headphones. Like alot of higher-end stuff, I guess they take work to sound best.
  7. Happy birthday Al!

    Deals

    AKG N90Q headphones at a substantial discount: N90Q | Reference class auto-calibrating noise cancelling headphones (harmanaudio.com) I think Tyll reviewed these well at some point, iirc. Always seemed interesting.
  9. Happy birthday, Nate!
  10. Or speaker-amp taps.
  11. ^Yes, it's difficult to justify paying $375-400 for a "real" HD650, when the HD6XX is $220 (cable differences aside, especially if audiophiles will have replacement cables anyway), if you're willing deal with shipping delays. The HD660S in the $400-500 range is just confusing to me in comparison. HD800S is showing a $300 price drop these days, which seems decent. Amazon Prime customers can get HD820's at a discount right now (although I never heard them sound good at the NY CanJam booths I frequented several years in a row (although I suspect it might have at least partially been a very l
