    Random question: does anyone here have BACCH for Mac, or have any experience with it? I'm curious to try it on my speakers, but I don't want to buy anything without trying it first.

    I guess it'll be just me and @Armaegis ?

    It's let up here too but they're predicting more snow to come. Should be interesting!

    Put me down for tentative. Things are just up in the air with my Dad's health atm so I'm playing things by ear.

    I can bring my measurement stuff and we can have an Measurement & EQ clinic 😆

    We got two whole pizzas, the special and the spicy sausage. My favorite was the latter. The pizzas were very tasty, but the center of the pizza was a bit wet and soggy compared to someplace like Gusto.

    Thanks for letting us know @ecwl. Who's still confirmed at this point?

    @ecwl Any chance the 30th could work for you? It looks like it's the best match so far.

    Shortys is great, but we'd be wise to make a reservation. @Armaegis can you make one of those doodley doos?

    Second owner of these lovely headphones. They are, by all accounts, the most resolving, spacious, and natural sounding earphones you can get. On technicalities, Crinacle and Antdroid both rate them as S+, meaning the best money can buy. Their only limitation is their unusual frequency...

    I actually didn't reply about these on purpose because anything I have that's not plugged in is usually in storage. But if you already factored me into your plans, I can buy a bag o' caps from you.

    Sure thing! I can post some tonight.

    Introducing the Audeze LCD-R!

    In the first part of my review here, I noted that the bass boost is really a high shelf. This means when comparing the sound with it on vs off, you need to manually adjust the volume to match in the midrange. I miss them since selling them. It was the smart financial decision, but not the smart...

    Introducing the Audeze LCD-R!

    These were originally my pair that I sold because it was simpler than paying big shipping back to the USA and hoping I could get back the $400 I paid in taxes. But this guy is asking for a lot more than he paid me, so I don't know how to feel about that. I sold them because of the comfort as...

    Introducing the Audeze LCD-R!

    Just been thinking about how the frequency response dip corresponds to the pad opening height of 6.5 cm and how the R pads have no fabric screen to protect the ears from the fazors. Has anyone tried the Rs with the new leather pads that might help with both these problems?

    Just want to echo thanks to @rifi for hosting. The meet was a blast. I'm still recovering that I was able to hear SR-009S on a T2! I was cautious not to listen too long so I don't end up smashing all my other cans with a hammer. Was surprised by a few more down to earth headphones as well. The...

    Did you build them for other people or were they yours?? I've read on forums about people buying and selling the same headphone multiple times after regretting it, but I don't think I heard of someone building three Cracks haha.

    Thanks for taking the time to add your impressions! Sometimes a headphone sounds best when brought in line, and sometimes it's best to lean into its lush character. Sounds like it more of the latter here. I'm sure our next meet will be relatively soon compared to the last one, now that some...

    It's too bad you can't make it! It looks like you have a combo I've always wanted to try but haven't been able to. Many say the Crack is magic with the HD-650, but I've only heard an HD-600, and on lesser solid state amps. Would you say the magic is real, or is it overstated?

    Introducing the Audeze LCD-R!

    The sense of space is really incredible, and isn't much affected by EQ. In fact, there is different sense of depth with the 5k dip that some may prefer in some cases. (Gosh from my playlist is one such case.) I've been trying to come up with a way to describe the LCD-R's spatial rendering, as...

    Introducing the Audeze LCD-R!

    I really, really wanted to try that. But since I'm not keeping the LCD-XC, I couldn't remove them to try it. Based on how the new pads affect the X series, they should notably improve the frequency response, but I'm not sure how it would affect anything else like soundstage.

    Introducing the Audeze LCD-R!

    The XC I have are from the latest batch and have the new pads. They have a different leather and stiffer foam than the LCD-R. I didn't put much work in refining my compensation curve above 7k before, but since people are looking at it I tried to make some refinements. It's hard to know what's...

    Introducing the Audeze LCD-R!

    It's taken me awhile to get my head wrapped around the sound of the LCD-R, as the it's presentation and technical performance are so different from what I've heard before. It's ability to separate elements in the mix (including spatially) and to render instrumental textures are probably it's two...

    IIRC your Crimson amp is really wonderful. Curious how it would compare to @Armaegis new Bryston amp. Also, do you still have LCD-4?
