    J River Media Center is pretty good.

    CanJam SoCal 2021 (September 25-26, 2021)

    I went on Sunday and I counted a total of 20 rooms, so it was a pretty small show. Many brands were missing, like Elac and Zu Audio. The staff asked for proof of vaccination (or recent negative Covid test) at check-in and masks were required throughout (although not everybody complied)...

    ZMF Aeolus Impressions thread

    My first option would normally be the Schiit Valhalla, but it's $349. Other possibilities are Schiit Vali ($149) and Cavalli Tube Hybrid from Drop (not in stock right now, but I think it's around $249 when it's available).

    For 6AS7G tube rollers here .....

    I picked up a couple of vintage Svetlana 6AS7G tubes from Russia via eBay. Very nice tubes - they are excellent in my Woo Audio WA3. Reasonable price too.

    CanJam SoCal 2021 (September 25-26, 2021)

    It looks like The Home Entertainment show is going forward in Long Beach in a couple of weeks, so things are looking pretty good for CanJam in September. Hope to see everyone there - it will be good to finally be able to attend an audio show in person again!

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    When Modi 3 gets updated with ESS chips it will be very tempting to buy one just to compare it side-by-side with my old Modi 3 with AKM chips. I use multibit DACs for both my headphone and 2-channel setups, but it will be interesting to see if I can hear a difference between the two chipsets.

    Woo Audio WA6 + WA6SE: Tubes, Comments, Pictures, and Advice

    No, but I have the Mullard GZ37 which is supposedly very similar and that is a great sounding tube.

    Here's one option from eBay. I bought this one and it works as expected. I'm sure other options are available too.

    That's a great deal! The Aeolus sounds fabulous with the Liquid Platinum.

    An HP calculator without RPN? Heresy! I still have my HP 15C from my college days - still going strong.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Frequency response alone does not fully describe sound impressions IMHO. However, some things are clearly correlated - the treble peak on the HD 800 frequency response curve is clearly audible, for example. Measurements are interesting, but they are just one data point - again, IMHO.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    It's like the old saying goes: If it measures the same and sounds different then you're not measuring the right thing.

    I looked on Amazon, but I ended up buying a custom-made cable from eBay. I would try a search there.

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    Ah yes, the ZX Spectrum. My first computer. I have fond memories of that - I especially liked the way each key had BASIC keywords associated with it. Brilliant! Also, it used a regular audio cassette player to store data and programs. Copying a game meant copying the audio cassette it came on...

    The Reference 6SN7 Thread

    Great - thanks for sharing! It definitely sounds like I will need to get one of their 6SN7s - and probably a 274B as well. Did you buy the tubes directly from their store in China?

    The Reference 6SN7 Thread

    +1 for Psvane - their tubes are excellent. (Better than many NOS tubes IMHO, but that's a dangerous thing to say here :)) There's also a new company called Linlai that supposedly was founded by people who used to work for Psvane (which sounds promising), but I haven't heard any of their tubes.

    Woo Audio WA6 + WA6SE: Tubes, Comments, Pictures, and Advice

    Has anybody tried the Linlai tubes? According to their website they make a 274B rectifier. It looks like Linlai has its origins from Psvane, which is promising.

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    I think the idea is that the different analog boards need different firmware, which currently requires a trip back to Schiit. Bifrost 2 has an SD card slot that can be used to upgrade the firmware. I think that's the feature that they call 'Autonomy'. Not strictly necessary, but a nifty feature...

    ZMF Ori (Omni) - Upcoming Semi Open Flagship

    Not to add to your temptations, but I've heard the Liquid Gold X described as sounding kind of like a Liquid Platinum with really good tubes. I use vintage Amperex tubes (which may or may not fit the definition of 'really good' tubes) in my Liquid Platinum and I can definitely hear the...

    ZMF Ori (Omni) - Upcoming Semi Open Flagship

    Yes, I remember your struggles with getting a DAC driver for the Liquid Gold X. I'm sorry to hear that Monoprice was unable to find a solution for you. This will probably not make you feel any better, but I don't actually use the built-in DAC beyond the initial listen to compare it to my Bifrost...

    Monoprice Monolith Liquid Gold (X)

    Interesting! I'm really enjoying my LCD-2 with the Liquid Gold X. I'm not sure exactly what version of the LCD-2 that I have - I think it's one of the early Fazor models. With some amps the treble on the LCD-2 bothers me a bit (I'm very treble-sensitive), but the Liquid Gold X is excellent to my...
