    IMR Acoustics EDP (Every Day Planar)

    “worst buying experience I've had in the hobby”. Just trying to understand... do you have a tracking number and see the package moving, albeit slowly, or do you not have a tracking number or it has not even left Bob’s post office?

    Probably a function of the antenna design, or the circuit power employed. Really, you should expect different devices to have different ranges. As @hmscott says, you can figure out what works. But if you are not satisfied then hopefully you are still within a return period.

    Yep. I quit Qobuz earlier this year for this reason. Kept Tidal.

    Definitely a more complex situation for you than I have on my LG v30 and R6 Pro.

    On my v30 I use a standard/ordinary usbc to usbc cable. However 99.9% of the time I just use the BTR5 in LDAC Bluetooth mode as it sounds great and is quite convenient.

    After a nearly 4 week “holiday” in Miami, my PB1 have begun to move! Maybe I will have them before the end of the week!

    DROP + THX Panda Announcement

    True. I have my pair. But I have gone from spending >$5000 on (Mass)Drop in 2018, to a few hundred in 2019 and 2020. So, while I do have mine, I also am much more picky now. Even more extreme reaction to Kickstarter and Indiegogo, I only have ordered a couple of items and these from well...
