  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Sennheiser HD 820 closed-back flagship

    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
  5. Sennheiser HD 820 closed-back flagship

    I envy you the ability to bring electronics in to your office.
  6. Sennheiser HD 820 closed-back flagship

    You're the only one in that club with more than one amp.
  7. Sennheiser HD 820 closed-back flagship

    I wish people would stop making headphones after I decided to stop buying them.
  8. Happy Birthday Grahame

    Grame! Happy birthday, my friend.
  9. Is Doug still selling a Torpedo on here?
  10. The State of DACSES

    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.
  11. HDTV Suggestions

    These are way better than the LS50 wireless, IMO. You can also routinely get them for under $1k. That said, you're the only guy here who ever bought monitor speakers from me, so you know what I like.
  12. HDTV Suggestions

    For $2000 bookshelves (including stand) I know what I would choose. Ascend Sierra 2 w/ RAAL ribbon. It will use up the budget otherwise wasted on surround speakers, sub, and center channel. You'll need to negotiate for those speakers at a later date, but in the meantime you'll pee your pants at every orchestral soundtrack.
  13. And now what did you do TODAY?

    Just catching up, congratulations to Jacob, Steve, and Al (on the neighbor). As always, all my jealousy to Stretch.
  14. Get your game on!

    Are we still playing Destiny 2?
