  1. I’ll gladly try a sample pair! Thanks Justin
  2. God I hate installing carts Managed not to blow anything up, as the pass ono requires opening the top to access the MC settings and add a jumper for setting gain 🤦‍♂️ at least the cart was pretty easy to install due to threaded mounting holes and the cart pins actually lining up directly with the headshell pins. gratuitous doggie pics!
  3. Not necessarily reading, but some good stuff in there
  4. Music Matters Jazz Reissues, final SRX drops were today!
  5. We adopted a dog! Her name is Olive 🥰

    ATC speakers

    The ATC room has always been the highlight for me at the past few axponas. I’m a fan of the actives only because you get to rid of a box. Some of the “cheaper” ones don’t have the same kind of bass extension, so I’d recommend getting the most expensive ones you can afford 😭
  7. Bryan is correct - mineral oil is what’s recommended, at least for the wooden cupped headphones. EDIT: the stuff is pretty viscous and goopy, start with a small amount on say a q tip and just work it through slowly.
  8. Happy birthday Chris! Hopefully you’ll have some time away from the soldering gun to enjoy this weather!
  9. Yes! My biggest familiarity with woodworking is through luthier friends, I have a bud that makes cellos and another that is an accomplished guitar maker. The guitar guy uses hide glue construction exclusively, and typically his solid tops and backs are perfectly bookmatched to ensure that nice consistent look. Cheers!
  10. You’ve got me missing axpona now the daedalus speakers in person really highlight the quality of the wood and overall craftsmanship. Sorry Bryan but I ain’t helping you bring them down into the listening room.
  11. Much respect to the hide glue. Old school construction, kudos.
  12. It’s a Matthew sweet 90’s kind of day:
  13. Rice in microwave works for me. 2:1 water to rice ratio (family of 4 we do 1 cup rice 2 cups water) microwave on high for 5 minutes, take out and stir, 10 minutes at 50% power, voila! Kind of shaming my Filipino ancestry but what can you do...
  14. Compressed Apple Music 9.99 a moth ftmfw right hurr
