    My only hesitation with buying that particular watch without trying it on is the size. It is lug-less which helps a lot, but there is no getting around the nominal case diameter or the thickness. But if you are already accustomed to wearing sizable watches maybe go for it. If not, I would wait until you can try it on. At its price point I think a drive to confirm it fits is worth the time.

    Thanks, the wife has done a lot of work to get it to this point. There is one large and 3 medium cabinets left to build then she will move on to making the drawers and doors. Apparently she finds this sort of thing 'fun'. She is also going to do the custom interior of the safe with the upper part jewelry and watch drawers and the lower for files.

    Well the new "watch box" arrived to day and was installed into our master closet. Now the wife can finish building the rest of the cabinets that surround it. Maybe another weekend worth of work. It will be great to have a fully functional closet again..

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Yea and no. The lower fans are gutted 120s used as stand offs. The 50mm distance(2xstandard 120s) is pretty optimal from a static pressure VS a giant dead spot where the fan hub is.. I actually find this performs almost as well as a push pull setup but without the added noise of 2x the fans. Pro tip computer shops don't value dead fans. I got all my extras for free!

    Added my CPU into my custom water loop. Two 240mm and one 480mm rad cooling a 3600x and radeon vii.

    The Headcase Stax thread

    I have the V1 and I cannot compare it to high end DACs or DACs in its price range. I have not gotten a chance to listen to other DACs in a situation where the surround components were familiar enough for me to draw a conclusion. There are no local Hifi dealers where I live so getting the chance to in home demo just isn't on the cards for me. I actually only heard the YGGY once before buying it. It was at a meet where Head-Amp was demoing the BHSE. I loved the sound with those two components and the 007mki. I decided I would purchase what I knew I liked.

    The Headcase Stax thread

    It has been a few weeks since I have had time to sit down and listen to my system. Innuos mkii > YGGY > Mjolnir BHSE > 007 Most of my listening has been in my car or BT buds at work. The difference is startling. Makes me think of the republic (if my memory is accurate) where Plato describes people viewing the world via shadows VS the actual objects.

    Id wear it but only if the wool is part of the strap and not just a pillow. Although if not I guess I could have the wife sew it together.. Should offend nicely. Just like my neon pink lifting shoes.

    Hublot deservedly gets a lot of flack, but they do some cool things, especially with materials. Their magic gold for instance is really impressive in concept and in your hands. The model like from them most is the "spirit of big bang". It's obviously their interpretation of a tonneau Richard mill, but I like their take on that. The fact that it is powered be the El primero doesn't hurt. One of those in magic gold is on my short list. I would add a red leather/rubber strap from them to go with the stock.

    The train might be slightly less awkward to wear than some AP offshores(survivor) or hublots(La Ferrari). I endorse this new path you are taking!

    My initial impressions of the pictures of the new Lange sports watch were not great, while the dial is excellent, I'm OK with the dressy bracelet because it fits the brand and even the non integration of the bracelet because that has been done to death recently. But the case with the pushers sticking out on one side looked awkward, like a nautilus with an ear chopped off. However in the video link below those pushers seem much less pronounced. At many angles I don't even notice them. I can't wait to see this in person! I've gotten to try many Lange watches and hope to one day have my own lange.

    I expect I'll be looking for things to time when I have my chrono. The crispness of the actuation is something I'm anxiously awaiting at my finger tips.

    I fully understand and take no offense. I've never done well expressing my self in written English. It always loses nuance.

    Unlikely, my last resort is always jewelry. Don't feel bad for her, like I'm spending money she wouldn't. I have one vice, watches, she might complain a bit but she is an enabler since 50% of my collection are gifts from her. Oh and I'm pretty so I have that going for me..
