  1. Post what you're watching

    Trying to get through American Gods again before I cancel my Starz subscription.
  2. What are you EATING right now?

    Finished the last of the takeout Nilgiri Korma. Damn that stuff is delicious.
  3. What are you listening to Part the Third

    Amplifier, Trippin' with Dr. Faustus
  4. The analog thread.

    Understood -- Smooth Jazz is a whole 'nother genre. That's not jazz. Mikey is, of course, referring to jazz which is smooth. What I refer to as smoov jazz, for no other reason than to differentiate from that Muzak sounding tripe. (But I also recognize that it hasn't taken on as an expression.)
  5. What are you listening to Part the Third

    Was: Klaus Schulze, Androgyn RIYL: Klaus Schulze, although this is one of his best new releases in years. It's very mellow, even for him. (A lot of his releases are either synthesizer noodling over a sequence, or weird collaborations with vocalists or other instrumentalists like cellists.) Is: Eno, Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy and Before and After Science
  6. What are you listening to Part the Third

    Bjorn Riis, Forever Comes to an End RIYL: Pink Floyd, Pineapple Thief, Airbag (of course -- that's his band)
  7. And now what did you do TODAY?

    Outstanding! Having had my bloodwork interpreted recently, I actually understood the ramifications of all those numbers.
  8. Speaker Porn

    Oh, okay, it sounded exactly backwards.
  9. Speaker Porn

    It is spelled with one L.
  10. Speaker Porn

    It's probably a lot more inert than you're making it sound.
  11. Thanks for the explanation!
  12. I've used both the HRT and the HeadAmp Pico DAC/Amp with good results. Why do you bring up hiss? Have you had a problem with hiss before? That's usually an impedance mismatch. I've only ever had hiss if it was on the original recordings, or if it was a low impedance headphone out of a Ray Samuels headphone amp.
  13. What are you EATING right now?

    I had some Nilgiri Korma the other day, and that was very green. I didn't have any digestive distress, so I probably pushed it a little too far earlier today by having pepper chicken from another Indian restaurant today. And now I am going to partake of similar fruits as to what Grem had earlier.
