    Happy Birthday Sherwood!

    I appreciate that, and appreciate the opportunity it afforded me to explain Dolan to my wife.

    Happy Birthday Sherwood!

    That America Mohawk is something to which I can aspire, Grahame. Thank you all for the well-wishes. My wife got me an appointment in a sensory deprivation tank for my birthday, which is a phenomenal present.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

  5. I've been putting in a lot of hours with the Focal Clear on my L2 -- reasonably good match on low output impedance, very poor match on high impedance. I can't remember hearing another headphone so sensitive to high output impedance before, but it screws the bass all up. Understanding now why you make a DSHA-3F version, Doug.

    Hey Head-Case, what's your bandwidth like?

    Edit: I posted a very fast speed, then realized I already posted here months ago. Mine is still not the fastest, so who gives a shit.

    Post what you're watching

    I'm with Dusty, love the show. I have a longstanding affinity for Joel Kinnaman, though, so I'm biased.
  8. Agreed on both. I was listening to "I Won't Lie to You" for the second time in a row when I came to this thread. The Peter Gabriel feeling never goes away, but as Dusty alluded to it never feels bad either. No one can really "live up" to Peter Gabriel, but Francis gives it a respectable go.

    At the moment I work in a SCIF and can’t bring in a phone, Fitbit, etc. When I stop working with classified stuff I’ll be able to bring in whatever, but for the time being we’re pretending to stop the Russians from spying. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I envy you the ability to bring electronics in to your office.

    You're the only one in that club with more than one amp.

    I wish people would stop making headphones after I decided to stop buying them.

    Happy Birthday Grahame

    Grame! Happy birthday, my friend.
  14. Is Doug still selling a Torpedo on here?

    Roon is indispensable, Stretch. Even on my budget, definitely on yours. Pair it with Tidal for content if you don't see the value in organizing your local library. What it brings to the table is a charming interface and world class metadata curation. If you are an active music listener and like reading album reviews, looking at art, browsing artists who influenced whatever you're listening to, etc. you can't pass it up.
