The songs I listen to sound better on youtube to be honest.

Andrew brid master swarm has next to no bass on spotify, but youtube sounds fine. Sooooooooooo idk whats going on.

It was something I asked more out if being thorough than anything else smile.gif

For me, while I am a subscriber to Spotify, I still prefer physical media, or at least my own rips from my collection... But I also started some time ago in the mid-90's.

One thing I can't stand with Spotify though is how some albums I absolutely looooove (like the second release of Thousand Foot Krutch's "Set it Off" - the one that has a DJ holding a grenade microphone and is heavily influence by graff arf for it's design).... Do not exist. Yes, I said second release. First one was an indie release and featured a cartoonish bomb on the CD itself, second was their initial release on Tooth and Nail Records.

Why does Spotify bug me for this? They only have the remastered versions where they went hog wild with "generic Christian Rock polish" as well as "look at us, we have a distortion pedal on everything!".... So while the recording is of higher fidelity overall, it's the fact they threw out what made the album what it was in the first place. Aka they only have the third release of the album,and while yes later tracks are a lot nicer, the first six or so feel like they had their souls forcibly taken away by a $35 Boss distortion pedal (probably wasn't a Boss, but I can't resist because the two cheapo special Boss distortion pedals are both orange).

An apt comparison to how I felt would be if Metallica was on tour, doing stuff from the black album and suddenly went ska, or gangster rap in the middle of a classic, and they were being serious about it (not for stupidity's sake or shock factor, but actually full fledged seriousness).

For future reference (and I didn't realize this until yesterday) we should refrain from discussing anything related to group buys/deals on here. It's against ToS smile.gif.

Anyone tried the JDS Labs EL Amp?(or The Element since I assume it's the same amp inside), it's pretty slick looking for $280, and takes RCA input, unlike the damn O2

Could also snag The Element as a B Stock for $300...don't really need to replace my Modi but it's basically a brand new DAC for an extra $20...

Yeah, the O2 is a significant downgrade, IMO, to the Asgard 2.

You find me a streaming service that can stream the beatles and led zeppelin legally, then you let me know.

I'd love Spotify more if they could get Tool...but.....yeah :grittyteethemoji:.

If I like that, then I am in.

I am noticing that there is a definite lack of warmth to some songs and I am hoping its due to internet compression. We will see what 320 sounds like.

I always felt it was much better than any YouTube equivalent I could find. I was under the impression they use Ogg Vorbis...but I'm not sure if this has changed, since.

Howdy boys. ::lights a cigar::

FLAC Pink Floyd for 3 hours straight, alternating headphones. We have a winner.

stock philips shp-9500 = crap
pioneer se-a1000 = great soundstage but loses that "i just got high off my music trance like feeling"
Monolith M1060 = second place winner

First place winner: Philips SHP-9500 with Shure Alcantara Earpads rotated 30 degrees over what they should be considered normal, with custom vmoda purple cloth cable, and schiit fulla 1 over type C.

damn boys, I haven't had this much fun in months

Yeah, the ODAC itself should be fine, but in the end, let your ears do the judging thumb.gif.

Read the release info on the Element, I believe its a different DAC also.

Should have been more specific, it is using the same DAC chip as the JDS ODAC Rev B

One thing I can't stand with Spotify though is how some albums I absolutely looooove (like the second release of Thousand Foot Krutch's "Set it Off" - the one that has a DJ holding a grenade microphone and is heavily influence by graff arf for it's design).... Do not exist. Yes, I said second release. First one was an indie release and featured a cartoonish bomb on the CD itself, second was their initial release on Tooth and Nail Records.

Why does Spotify bug me for this? They only have the remastered versions where they went hog wild with "generic Christian Rock polish" as well as "look at us, we have a distortion pedal on everything!".... So while the recording is of higher fidelity overall, it's the fact they threw out what made the album what it was in the first place. Aka they only have the third release of the album,and while yes later tracks are a lot nicer, the first six or so feel like they had their souls forcibly taken away by a $35 Boss distortion pedal (probably wasn't a Boss, but I can't resist because the two cheapo special Boss distortion pedals are both orange).

An apt comparison to how I felt would be if Metallica was on tour, doing stuff from the black album and suddenly went ska, or gangster rap in the middle of a classic, and they were being serious about it (not for stupidity's sake or shock factor, but actually full fledged seriousness).

Totally agree.

Not only that but it sounds like a lot of the rips were done incorrectly. Rather than ripping CDs at 320kb, it sounds like they were ripped in wav and then compressed back to 320kb. So you really aren't getting the quality you are supposed to be getting with a premium membership.

My Tenmark Pro IEM's will be in in about two weeks, no doubt in my mind they will probably beat out my other 3 IEM's, said it has 4 drivers in it... wowza. Really hope it impresses me and isolates the noise well.

Do you think it is enough to block out aircraft jet engines if I have volume on music at low?

Do you think it is enough to block out aircraft jet engines if I have volume on music at low?

When they say four drivers, it's two per ear ~_^

As for blocking out engine noise, especially jet engines... Double muffed (plugs + defenders) doesn't do the job fully, so... I suspect you shouldn't rely on IEM's to protect your ears if you're anywhere near jet aircraft - use proper hearing protection tongue.gif

As for jets taking off a thousand feet away, that's a totally different story.
