    anyone here sick?

    If you think that's annoying, then you'll appreciate the reluctance with which I postponed my WTC Health Program appointment this morning. "Sorry, I can't be screened for strange but strangely prevalent cancers because I'd be risking exposure to a strange but strangely ubiquitous respiratory...

    V-MODA M-100: Discussion/Feedback, Reviews, Pics, etc.

    A toothy critter appears to have gnawed one of the earpads on my OG M-100s. My desk looks like a crime scene. You can even see the stuffing. This is especially disturbing because I myself have not adopted a toothy critter. Swerves me reich, I sup hose, for not keeping my Ms in the case. Now to...

    Massdrop x NuForce EDC3 IEM

    I'm interested in the EDC3s, but will they sound better than the corpse of my late uncle? I realize that IEMs will be more portable on subway rides than Uncle Antonio, but how will the signature differ? I listen primarily to Mexican funeral marches and my favorite band is Wolves of the Sierra...

    I Find This Distressing

    "My freedom will be so much the greater and more meaningful the more narrowly mercilessly I limit my field of action lash my aching auricles and the more I surround myself gore my ossicles with obstacles serrated highs. Whatever diminishes constraint breathless agony diminishes constraint...

    I Find This Distressing

    Understood, but you don't have to ken me personally to glean context. Someone who's acquainted with mildly esoteric kit creators and a frequently cited critic who characterizes himself as an audiophile probably has a history with the term even if that person is a stranger to you -- especially if...

    I Find This Distressing

    Thanks for the lesson in common suffixes! Since I edit books and magazines for a living these years, I had no idea what -phile could possibly mean! Question, Muinarc: Do you make a distinction between a joke and a serious objection? If so, are you familiar with rhetorical forms that seem to be...

    iFi Driver Software: Benevolent or Malish?

    Thanks for the validation. Has anyone else checked the .exe file using Essentials? After I visit the Woundos machine at my grillfiend's place, I'll open a ticket if I get the same result. If not, I'll do my best to alert iFi to the issue. It would be nice if I were able to use my iDSD at work...

    Did you succumb to that deal or resist it, Mr. Blue Rando à la Terco? I'm still debating with my various selves whether to partake because I'm unfamiliar with Buydig. I noticed sixty-three complaints lodged with the Bitter Bassinet Burro over a ten-year period; beyond that, I don't know mush...

    Campfire Audio - Introducing 2 new models Hello Andromeda and Nova

    Currently, Noble Audio is flaunting a good deal on a collaborative version of the Kaiser 10, but the depressing thing is this: I don't give two malamutes' morphologies about it! Though the MD x Noble collaboration looks tremends, I only have one question: When the schnell will the Andromeda...

    iFi Audio Nano iDSD discussion + impression

    Thanks for the vigorous response. Normally, site updates don't take over a week, hence my question posed to the at public large. Hey, there, large public at. It's a diagnostic question, which I hope didn't appear to be an impatient expostulation. Fellow Trilobite Lodge members will attest to...

    Sony MDR-V6 vs. MDR-7506. There is a difference in sound. *** Pictures too ***

      East Coast veteran studio voles I've toiled with attribute the ubiquity of NS-10Ms to Bobby Clearmountain. Once revered for his impossibly successful mixes, he used to heft his own pair of speaks to every room he worked. Eventually, studio owners aped his taste and he was able to leave said...

    Campfire Audio - Introducing 2 new models Hello Andromeda and Nova

    As someone else on this thread wrote earlier, listening to a product's performance is far more important than reading a graph of its frequency emphasis. If that weren't true, then why would a company that created Jupiters and Andromae bother to create Orions or Novas at all?

    Campfire Audio - Introducing 2 new models Hello Andromeda and Nova

    My apologies, audionewbi; I was only trying to help.   Provisional writing can be effective as a reflection of the process of thought. However, I also believe it's important to respect the reader as much as the integrity of the provisional. It's worth the effort to pause for a moment and...

    Campfire Audio - Introducing 2 new models Hello Andromeda and Nova

      Quote: This might be what audionewbi wanted to say:   "What got me interested in ALO Audio was the attractiveness of its products, the sales on its official site, and ALO Audio's products and sale prices versus those of the so-called competition. There is no doubt in my mind that the...
