  1. I'm sure it seems silly to some, but I sent this to a friend who's been struggling with the online dating scene since even before the pandemic and it piqued his interest. So thank you for sharing.
  2. Yeah, tell us about the tractor now.
  3. I've been eyeballing this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07HYWDS7D/ref=ox_sc_saved_image_7?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1
  4. Stop saying the quiet parts out loud. There are plenty of ways to achieve your goal - but broadcasting in a FS thread they way you did is not the way to get there.
  5. People ship drives to other people to fill up with music? Seems odd.
  6. I got two from Rudy81 a couple of years ago. He was asking for $200 total to cover the cost of the drivers. Fortunately he's just across town from me and I snatched them up as an ice storm was rolling through. So that's certainly a place to start - then it's up to you if want to be compensated for the plywood and effort of building it (he, apparently, did not).
  7. That's probably the one big roadblock - finding one used and affordable. The spdif to aes works fine for me as well with a standard monoprice rca to XLR cable.
  8. My yamaha sp2060 unit runs at 24/96, for what it's worth. And has digital aes inputs. And you can still find and run the software to remotely configure over ethernet.
  9. My youngest just turned 7! And the 9 year old..
  10. Ah fair enough, thanks for the additional clarity around what you're trying to accomplish.
  11. Lookup pictures of the different models and see what outputs are on the back? The node 2i appears to have a dedicated sub output, for instance.
  12. I received this email from ESS this afternoon and likely so did @Chris A, @Rudy81, @Pete H, and others. Hopefully this becomes a long term viable option for enthusiasts..
  13. Both cases cleared up with treatment, so that's good.
  14. They've had to learn about life and death early on, respect for the natural world, work ethic, and consequences for skipping responsibility. They've seen the byproduct of hard work and tasted food fresh from our soil. They've had to care for animals and either watch them be sold for someone else to enjoy or helped butcher and eat the animal themselves. They have immense freedom and roam the pasture and woods often. Many mornings they'll wake up before us and just go hang out with the goats and other livestock. They know how to use a staff twice their height and get animals from the pasture to the barn. They're 7 and 9. There's also studies which show possible immune system boosts and reduction of risk for asthma by being in and around barns and livestock, etc. (And they were breastfed till just after 1yr). This didn't happen by chance, however. My wife and I lived in the suburbs and consciously decided to move out here and have this environment for our kids to grow up in and it's taken a great deal of effort and sacrifice to get here. So I very much agree with earlier sentiments that the attitudes and behaviors are a result of the parents. They still have tablets and electronics, sure, but their use of such things pales in comparison to everything else which fills their days.
  15. every kid should grow up on a farm. i wish i had. so now we're making up for lost time..
  16. He just posted ~1hr ago, for what it's worth.
  17. As far as headphone systems go, it's a really solid piece. I haven't integrated it into my main stereo system yet (it and my headphones are currently at the office so I can use them more), but I anticipate it working quite well as a dac/preamp.
  18. I have the Yamaha SP2060, but as Chris mentioned above they can be hard to find and somewhat expensive when you do. I tripped and fell into a good deal on mine.
  19. Good stuff Ron, thanks for sharing.
  20. Any contact with Kecia?
