  1. I appreciate that you put it up for sale. I bought one from you on Ebay and love it.
  2. Thanks, guys! I had a wonderful birthday, went to a Russian restaurant in Istanbul called 1924 and enjoyed the first real black sea caviar of my life. I'm a fan.
  3. In no universe is Birgir "very respectable". He comes nowhere near my daughter.
  4. We're done here.
  5. Intense. Huge congratulations to you and your son, Mike, lots to be proud of. Here's hoping it's Arabic and not Dari.
  6. Happy birthday, dearest Al!
  7. Happy birthday!
  8. I can't imagine a scenario where I would ever be able to play anything on the go. I can't even bring a phone in my office.
  9. Even better idea, full marks to Jacob. Now I just have to keep my mouth shut about it until I'm sure that my wife hasn't bought me one as a gift already.
  10. I'm planning on buying a used one in a few months, then selling it when I beat the game.
  11. I doubt anyone not in their employ has made more money for Stax than you have.
  12. Katz has a good track record, good enough to get the benefit of the doubt from me, but this flies in the face of most of what reasonable people have told me. Basically, something is amiss.
  13. Go set yourself on fire in Tunisia.
  14. I'll assume you've got the DAC sorted out already.
  15. HQplayer just put out an update, 3.15. It adds a new non-apodizing filter, poly-sinc-XTR, said to be a close approximation of the filter implemented in the Chord DAVE. It takes some horsepower to run it properly. ROON has also announced some HQPlayer-like upsampling options built into their newest version, which should be coming out shortly. I am positively chuffed to bits.
