  1. Because this is more fun.
  2. Since ROON released ARC I decided to play around at work with my headphone setup. Currently the phone is connected via USB to the DAC, DAC to Schiit Magni, and head phones are Hifiman HE400Se's. I'm not sure how long the phone battery will last as it is the main source of power for the Schiit Modi. Sound is good, but there is a lot of down sampling due to the phones capability. The fact that I am able to listen to music that is stored on my hard drive is pretty cool.
  3. Are you planning on taking any before/after measurements to see what you have done makes any difference?

    SC Estate Sale

    This auction was scheduled for this past weekend. Did anyone attend?
  5. I am pretty happy with my Hifiman HE400se, they run around $125.00.
  6. Not sure if you have tried reaching out to @RealMarkDeneen, if not, give him a shout and he may have a recommendations.
  7. The Redline and Warlock combo had no issues chugging. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk

  9. I said I would touch back on the story in regards to my pearl pink B.C. Rich Platinum Warlock. So I at the time I thought I wanted to learn guitar, a buddy of mine says his dad has a guitar and some cabs ( cabs where line array 4x8 Kustom columns, which I eventually traded for some EV cabs). Picked up the guitar and cabs for $100.00. The guitar always had problems staying tuned, so it sat for 20 years. I later found out the neck was cracked and never had really been in the hands of real tech. Until i found out that the fellow I traded my Ludwig set with is the guitar tech at a local shop. I left it in his hands and after 4 weeks, just picked it up. It needs a little work for the floating tremolo to be set correctly, but this thing plays nicer than my Dean ML. Needless to say I am excited to play this beast. On a second note, does anyone have experience with VHT Redline amps? Demo'ed one at the shop I picked my guitar up at and thought it sounded very good, may consider one down the road. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  10. That YouTube video was worth the watch. He mentioned something about the neo project, sounds like it could be a good source to identify a good cut. I'll have to go back and look up the actual site. It doesn't both me that mofi cut from dsd, but that it sounds like they were charging way more than they should for what should be a simple process that others are charging way less for. I'd like to dable into some of those sources for some of my vinyl purchases, but in the end, high res from HD Tracks at $15-$25 an album sounds good to me. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  11. I agree as well, my Type O Negative box set is on point. My new reissue Zeppelin is un listenable. Just my 2 cents.
  12. Ah the domes of silence. I once felt honored to own Cornwall Is with factory installed domes of silence. Carry on.
  13. Well, that's a wrap of a long weekend for me. Got some house chores done, cleaned the garage, made a board and batten wall for my wife's office, cleaned the garage again, made a box for my dad...now cleaning the garage....again, getting ready to work on the bar in the basement now that it is cooling off. Smoked a couple racks of ribs on my BGE this weekend as well. Used a Carolina Reaper/coffee rub. Listened to The Huskers win with a couple beers while doing so. Now back to my routine until next Friday when I'm off to Riotfest in Chicago. Oh and enjoyed tunes as well. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  14. This is awesome, congrats Dean, well deserved. Can I send my Heresy 1 networks to you? Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  15. Why not just remove the grill, wouldn't that in it self be a better mod? Plus not hair dryer or re gluing is needed.
  16. Congrats one the next move. Can we expect Negatron 3 in the years to come?
  17. Nice looking speakers and GLWTS, but I am a little confused by this statement. "Original Type B Crossovers have been updated with Sonicaps…via JEM performance… pictures show a Crites style crossover which has been replaced." I didn't think JEM supplied Sonicaps as a authorized Klipsch replacement and why would that be any different than a Crites crossover with the same caps? To help your sale, you may want to give a clearer explanation on this.
  18. Just seen one of those the other day. Don't know if it was well kept or restored, but dang it looked great for its age.
  19. Had to read up on this, research shows that 1 in 3 Americans have insulin resistance. I thought I was good having my glucose levels checked.

  21. Sometimes I wonder if I misinterpreted this concept. One trainer says I don't have enough carbs and another says I don't have enough protein and a third says I'm over thinking it. I strive for around 2700 calories, lift weights 5 days a week with cardio. I enjoy long runs, so I add that to the beginning of the week amd the end of the week. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  22. I don't know how to explain it, but scenes like this bring out the emotions in me. There are rail yards around me, but I can't really say I grew up around them. But seeing photos like the one you shared makes me feel at home, like this explains my life for some reason. I don't know, kind of weird. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  23. I use EAC for ripping CDs. https://www.exactaudiocopy.de/ And ROON for my HI Res audio. I purchase hi res audio from HD Tracks. You need a PC of some sort for ROON core, but will then be able to control via phone app. I stream to my marantz AVR in my living room, but use a Raspberry PI with Volumio for my theater room and zone audio. G With your new setup you may want to consider one of the Bluesound Nodes. There is a thread in the lounge section that covers some good details about streaming. I'll see if I can dig it up.
