  1. Awesome! That amount of horsepower and that speed result (while impressive) also explains why the Veyron looks like a well-used bar of soap!
  2. Had a great fancy brunch, then played board games.
  3. He's asking how much power the car is making.
  4. I guess i didn't. comment retracted.
  5. The T1s are 600 ohm. I owned the DT880-600 (which I think are a real bargain for the $175 they go for), and they also definitely liked OTL amps better than solid state. I don't think there is any "masking" going on, I think it's just impedance match, more than anything else. It's been ages since I've heard either. I'd love to hear the K1000 again.
  6. I was comparing them to my first pair of HD-800s, and like I said, I had them for about 6 months, so there was a lot of comparing. I think the HD-800 was a bit better, on average, but there were quite a few things I preferred about the T1. The Beyers didn't seem to like solid state amps all that much, but they sure sang with the SP Extreme and good glass.
  7. Incorrect. I had Al's pair for about 6 months, and when driven well, it's excellent.
  8. More headphones, not fewer. I've decided to skip this. The Tesla T1, a much better pair of phones than the HD650, in my opinion, can be found for as cheap as $400, used, now. That is my next pair, I think.
  9. I should have bought a pair when I had the chance at a decent price. 10 years ago.
  10. The whole interior surface of the pan should be seasoned prior to use, in my opinion. A little oil on the bottom isn't going to hurt, but don't season the bottom. A little soap and a soft sponge isn't going to hurt the seasoning, btw, Mike.
  11. Marc, send me the LP. I'm happy to let you know how it goes.
  12. It sounds to me like something is making the left channel sound louder than it actually is, and it's showing up as overbearing bass on this album, just because of the way it's recorded. I'd definitely swap channels, and see what happens.
  13. On the CD, the bass is definitely almost entirely on the left (and Evans is mostly on the right). Just a recording quirk, but it might make the bass seem overbearing, depending on your setup. I'm listening with headphones, now (RS-1), and the channel difference is fairly irritating, but that's just how the album is. The bass line, even on headphones, isn't any louder than anything else, particularly. You can tell that the bass was miked fairly close. The drums are pretty well centered.
  14. No, not particularly. It's not the best recorded album ever, but the bass isn't standing out for me as being a problem. This is with my speakers. Is there a particular track where it's standing out for you the most?
  15. I have the AP cd. The bass sounds fine to me.
  16. Again, Zach, there is no requirement that you be an asshole. Just in case you didn't read the fine print.
  17. Haven't watched the video. When doing high temp searing, a lot of smoke will be produced.
  18. The Apollo-R is made to be a transport to the matching Apollo DAC, so I'm sure it'll do a great job.
  19. You're right, Dusty. Brain fart. I think I'm right about the blu-tack, though.
  20. Decoupling is minimizing surface area between the components. Spikes do that. Blu-tack does the opposite; as a tacky material, it couples the speakers to whatever they are on. Sand doesn't decouple, it dampens. Those Zingalis are beautiful, by the way.
  21. I have my speakers decoupled (granite slabs resting on sorbothane pads, then the speakers are on spikes on top of the slabs). I've only lived in old houses with bouncy wooden floors, while owning these speakers, and decoupling substantially improves bass quality in that situation, and helps prevent bothering neighbors. Without decoupling, these old trampoline floors vibrate horribly.
  22. These were excellent sun-drieds. Taste like red wine and honey.
  23. Has enough cheese to choke a starving llama. The finishing sauce was made with fresh and sun-dried tomatoes (amongst other things) and was simmered with a rind of Parmesan. Most flavorful sauce I've ever made.
