    EL34 dedicated headphone amp is my next buy, if I can find one. Why? Just because I need to scratch the itch :relaxed: The Willsenton R8 is pretty good with my 6XX, but I think I can do better (for a reasonable./similar cost)... other wise Asgard or Lyr - I'm looking at you.

    And likely a wise one too in terms of keeping the complexity of their business & support costs low. I work in the call centre world, and know full well the costs and complexity of keeping multiple support channels operational and synced.

    I actually started making a list of concerts a little while back, so here's the list I prepared earlier (and will grow as I remember any more!) First one was Sky with my Dad (and it was awesome musically and sonically, not so much a show) followed by the polar opposite Kiss (awesome show, music...

    Check out Folklore from the aforementioned obscure artist. Exile, track 4, is excellent. It's all well recorded too. I'm not a fanboi of hers but am impressed with her recent middle finger to the record company(ies) that kept selling her rights/music and cutting her out of decisions. Long...

    My first amp/receiver was a NAD Model 120. This is very tempting indeed! Wonder if any will sneak in to Aus?

    Possibly so. The actual sine wave I used I generated in Excel ... not sure my formula skills are good enough to make what you suggest. Edit : Thinking about it a bit more, I think "Schiit Sine" has a ring to it. Not so much "Schitt Low Frequency Large Amplitude Carrier & Small Amplitude High...

    ... and why you should never just stretch images to fill a gap and distort the schiit out of them with incorrect aspects. I can almost live with scaling up, but distorting the aspects really grinds my gears. *actually no, scaling up also sucks

    Were it black, I might have been tempted, but I think also the postage would be a killer.

    Here's one I made earlier. One of three. Two small ones, and another with four shelves. High SAF in our place :relaxed:

    All this talk about what sounds good/better (streaming vs physical media etc) prompted me to share a video of a remix of a classic Def Leppard track, Photograph. Even though it's on YouTube (and 128kbps?) the sound quality of the remix is impressive, and markedly better to me than the album...

    We have the Schiit Sine (TM) ... perhaps we now need some Schiit Venn (also TM)

    I would add another question C. Are the CD and the stream from the same source/master?

    Yup, that's usually the case, the sound needs to be delayed because the video processing takes longer :slight_smile:

    I have the BF2 and the Node 2i. That setting is ON for me, and it works fine.

    There is usually an audio delay setting on modern TVs, where you can adjust the audio delay so it matches the video when you are using external audio devices. My LG has such a setting, and I have seen others too. Check the menus on the TV's sound settings

    The dishwasher is one of the non-negotiable appliances in our house. If it breaks down, it gets replaced (unless under warranty). We are too far out of town for a reasonable cost service call, and inevitably they come out and investigate, then go away to order stuff then come back weeks later...

    I bought a UMC-1 direct from Emotiva when they were closing it out (and had the last of a line of firmware). Was rock solid for me, but my use case is simple with only a Bluray player (Oppo) and Apple TV out to a projector. Then I bought an XMC-1 second hand, and again have had zero issues...
