Contrast is not a bad thing, get on the hype train Axel, join the contrast rebellion.
Contrast is evil. That's why we added more of it in our recent graphical update.



My favorite ED of this season in HR (TrySail has never released HR before)

Just shut up and take my money already Sony!
I will absolutely buy a high-res version of this song. I was just singing it in my head before seeing your post, in fact.

All my DAC/Amp are battery powered so I assume that would mean they're floating?

EDIT: The cable above does have grounding but apparently it only works with German and French sockets. I don't live in Germany or France nor do I use the same type of sockets so I'm going to assume the grounding part doesn't work for me. I'll try buying a cable with a ground that works in my country and I'll see what happens from there. Thanks for the help! @vantt1 @deadlylover @kn19h7

Yup you're right on, battery powered = floatin'.

Grabbing the right cable should do the trick and just for safety's sake you should look into it soonish. I don't really trust consumer electronics these days...rightly or wrongly.

Not only do you need the right plug for the sockets, it's not uncommon to have sockets that aren't properly grounded too, especially in older homes and certain parts of the world. Lots of my equipment from Japan has grounding screw terminals on the back (ground at the wall sockets was a "relatively" new addition)...you'd have to manually wire it to something like a ground stake or a radiator in the home!

The popular Solarized pallet is some of the most putrid things I've ever seen... especially if I have to look at it for prolonged hours :/
No idea why so many people likes it...

Nope I meant that one. I have that exact cable.



So if that cable has grounding, I can assume the issue isn't due to grounding?

yup in France we have been fighting plug gender inequality for decades. on those plugs both sides have male and female parts.

Nice, you won't regret it

This single, in both AAC and Hi-Res version, became first in Mora's single ranking in a single day after its release for the AAC and 3rd for the Hi-Res format

Looks like this song, along with Eromanga Sensei, and Claris's Hitorigoto, is immensely popular right now.

I think I've replayed this song for about 30 times today

The dark one isn't too terrible for me. I use Obsidian, which I guess is similar? Although it still has a bit more contrast.

On the other hand, the light one is. Bleh.
The vanilla Obsidian scheme is garbage for HTML, though - I can admit that. How could they fu.ck that up while making other languages OK, I don't know.

I use a color scheme called ron which is the default dark theme in vim (and exclusive to vim AFAIK).
