  1. NAD Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifiers

    Both of those speakers (LS50's & Cicada's) seem to have very different ideal amp requirements. Given you have two other systems already, I'd suggest playing around with some interesting tube amps with the Cicadas for a different flavor. Maybe add a turntable?

    Happy Birthday, Tom!
  3. RIP some fuck or another

    RIP Daliah Lavi - actress, singer, passed away at 74 years of age on May 4, 2017. This clip from the original 1967 Casino Royale was just about the sexiest thing I'd ever seen during my young, formative years: I have no idea if she was particularly talented otherwise. But the fact that I came across this news on a somewhat random web-search, & seeing that she had passed away recently with little, if any (that I saw) fanfare made me a little melancholy.
  4. Happy Birthday wink!

    Happy Birthday!
  5. And now what did you do TODAY?

    @Shelly - sorry to hear about the place. A good inspector that works for you is worth their weight in gold. Our inspector saw two, tiny, old, cut pipes barely coming into a dark corner of our cellar, near where the inside oil tank currently resides. This triggered an underground scan of the driveway just outside cellar wall, which discovered a huge underground oil tank. The inside oil tank conversion was done prior to the last owners who had lived there for ten years, and they claimed no knowledge until the scan. Long story still long, they paid for the old tank removal, soil testing (sale contingent upon not needing further remediation), & repaving. I am a firm believer that the right home appears when it is right for you though, so you have the right attitude. Good luck with the continued search, and have fun with it. @mypasswordis - so a woman was licking the window outside your diner booth, and y'all post a selfie???!!!!! #trueheadphonenerds
  6. Happy Birthday Justin!

  7. Post what you're watching

    Caught up with all three seasons this past week/weekend. Wonderfully scripted & deftly delivered. Fantastic performances all around. I love Lily Tomlin even more than I did before, if that's possible.
  8. Happy birthday, Kerry!

    Happy birthday!
  9. Sony MDR-Z1R

    The Sony MDR-R10/CD3000, Qualia 010/SAx0000, & Z1R models are from completely distinct eras of Sony. They each represent such different (& pretty much opposite) approaches to a certain ideal that they might as well have come from different companies. Purk, if you'd like to hear an interesting headphone that is very reminiscent of the venerable R10, check out the Final Audio Design Sonorous VIII & X models. I heard them at CanJam NYC this year, & was left with more of an impression than from the Z1R.

    Not everybody wants the red pill.

  12. Post what you're watching

    Finished watching the season finale (ep8) - did not disappoint. Peter, please tell me you are watching this. So many "WTF?" moments!
  13. Happy Birthday Doug!

  14. RIP some fuck or another

    ^This. Watching that show in the mid-70's highlighted my appreciation for a quirky, dry sense of humor. No one else in my family 'got it'. RIP Chuck Barris.
  15. Sennheiser HD 800 Redux

    Newegg had them new for $899 briefly a few months ago. Any price south of $1k for a new pair has to be the best value in headphonedom, imo. Used deals like tkam's recent offer is even better. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
