    I think the timing on the black 009 is just not optimal for me. Maybe next month.. Or keep an eye on the classifieds for the next year or so and pick it up for a slight premium over the normal used 009.

    It does look sexy in that all black motif. I would really like one to pair with my 007.

    Thx, I am a big fan of everything they have done for this year on the watch. Here is a gratuitous lume shot with my BHSE in the background.

    Well I was expecting to be down to my Panerai and g shock for some time while assessing exactly what I wanted next. But the wife continues to be a bad influence in my life. She saw me checking out pics of this and decided it has a nice look, not entirely pleased that my watch dealer ignored my standing order not to let her buy me anything. Either way, quite pleased with the piece and he always comes through on the pricing. Normally not a fan of two tone yellow gold but the way it's used here is quite understated.

    Hifimans news letter has a pic of the new Jade II. Looks like you have more crap to buy Spritzer. Looks like they have given up on the v2 thing and over saturating the market is thier new strategy.

    always a fan of functional materials like nylon, plus the 'just so' adjustment of a nato! I just put really nice silicone strap on my panerai; I popped the stupid spring loaded pins out of the new strap and I am using the stock lug screws, as that is much more secure. I have the stock alligator strap with the panerai deployment and a really nice strap with a buckle that is made of vintage leather from Dangerous9. I am back to this as my daily driver and needed the new strap because neither of the other two stand up to blood and water very well. The market is out of control and I had an offer on my DSSD I couldn't say no too so panerai has been promoted up from the reserves.

    I thought it was a uv issue that could cause deterioration? If true limiting direct sunlight is best but indoor ambient lighting is ok.

    It defines the DJ IMO. The two were released together as a package. IDK if rolex has put other watches on the Jubilee? The oddly the Jubilee actually predates the oyster bracelet, but the first oyster cases are ~20 years older than the DJ. That is if my memory is working.

    I feel like a DJ belongs on a jubilee it was made for it quite literally. It with the fluted bezel gives it a more dressy appearance that works so well. If I want a classic look oyster; I would go for a perpetual or a explorer 1. That said I would never buy a DJ on a jubilee because despite how much I like the look of the bracelet my arm missing the hair from the localized point where the watch sits is just odd.

    @spritzer Technique matches pretty well with my technical level of expertise! I am quite good at hitting things. I am out of high voltage wire anyway, so hitting them will be first up. If that doesn't work they are under warranty; I can send them in for repair. Inconvenient but probably the safest route. If they come back and still have the issue then I will reflow the cable side solder joints first and finally if that doesn't work I will replace the wires from the cable to driver. Thanks for every ones input.

    Yes the first thing in did was flip them, and tested against other headphones.

    Straight forward enough I suppose, heat plus that driver makes me a bit nervous. What AWG should be used for the connection?

    So i feel like my newish 007s are developing a channel imbalance. I noticed this by the sound stage shifting slightly from the center to the left. I am assuming this is due to the right channel output being slightly lower. Any advice?
