    The 10 biggest lies in audio

    Quote: Hello,   I made some measurements on three "modulation" cables. Note that I did not listen to any of the tests, so there is no conclusion. I attached these cables in a manner that would be equivalent to an interconnect between a "liason"  (not sure if he means pre amp by...

    Quote: Lol kinda neat I guess :P.   Sounds like low-rez Astral Projection at the begining... then it sounds like I am not quite sure what lol.

    Quote: I have been lucky and had no issues coming of strong pain medication for my surgeries. Both times, after my month and a half script was up, I was merely a bit irritable. So again, everyone is different, I guess it either wasn't long enough or I just got lucky, or both.   Just...

      Well I'd just like to say thanks to everyone who responded or shared their own story.   Here is a small update a bit for anyone who might be interested:   Clonazepam only ended up exacerbating things in the end. Where lorazepam caught me off guard as I did not find it addictive...

      Quote:   Actually the mechanism by which MDMA is believed to acheive this astouding trait is quite interesting, and backed up / explained by numerous theories / models either directly or indirectly. Sounds like a cop out but I don't have the time or inclination to list everything...

    Kratom does stimulate opioid receptors, I'm not sure if its the mu-opioid sites specifically though. I would have to double check. IIRC though it is either a partial agonist or stimulates similar sites (or both) which is why it helps getting off opioids/opiates - it eases the withdrawals.  ...

    LCD3 Measurements

    Just like to add my thanks to Purrin for taking the time to produce these various measurements (and a crash course on how to read them to boot!) and those who apparently sent their headphones to him for testing. This was the first time I have been on head-fi in a long time and also the first...

    Quote: great post. Too bad all , or much objective and constructive info/discussion like this gets banished to the sound science forum. Then again, the mob rules.

    Denon AH-D7000

    Thanks for all the feedback guys!   I guess my price is pretty fair then 650 IIRC. They are mint minus one small scratch, have J$ pads v3 pads and still have the original box where they were stored. The only downside / upside is they were re-terminated to 4pin XLR but there is also a 4pin...

    Hey guys I am thinking about selling my D7000... again haha. Same with my HE-6, just can't bring myself to actually do it.     What are people getting them for new these days? I want to make sure I am not gouging.   Thanks!

    Quote: The root cause of the physiological symptoms was the withdrawal (which is why it was so scary, its not like I live with angina and know I have a condition.) I do not actually have any heart or blood pressure issues and am in pretty good shape. I can run 10k in about 50 mins... not...

    Hey guys,   Thanks for the kind words. Means a lot.   I am feeling good right now, healthier than I have in a long time actually - just a little sedated and it is brutal to wake up in the morning... it takes at least an hour.   dumb to say, but just to feel blood flow freely...

    Hi all,   I just figured I would share a personal experience I had last week in the hopes that no one else ever has to go through this.   I had been taking lorazepam (as prescribed), a benzodiazepine for the past 5 years for panic attacks, and insomnia. The little white pills seemed...

    Audio-GD Reference 7 - the new flagship DAC

    My 7.0 "clicks" when a signal is started or stopped... just for the record :P   Just from the DAC itself though, nothing through the transducers.

    I wouldnt mind my set having new pads though... mine arent the most symmetrical. Can't say it negatively effects the sound... but would definitely be more impressive looking.

    HE-500 Loaner Program

    Got them today (thanks again Chris!)   Well packaged and protected...   presentation is better than the HE-6 which was quite lacking, the design is more utilitarian too, but seems more robust (much sturdier cable, higher quality pads (i think) nice box with the fabric in it instead of...

    Anyone interested in the "Wii 2"?

    Hey All,   Just wondering what people think of the Wii 2.   I don't want to come across as a fan boy of any console, as embarrassingly enough I own pretty much every console released in the last 20 years (save a dreamcast).   That aside, does anyone actually care?   The Wii was a...

    Quote: I know what you meant, but I am saying that there is not necessarily such a combo. A lush amp that tames highs would be either be coloured beyond belief (don't think they actually sell amps like that, despite what people claim) or you can plug it into an amp that does not have the...

    Quote: EQ would be very handy... different headphones is probably the easiest route.   You would have to have an impossibly coloured amp or DAC to do that.
