    The wealth-building thread

    I wish the crypto thread was still around. BTC is up 115% on the 1yr chart. Dow is up 12%. But grandpa says its a beanie baby bubble. It deserves a place in most portfolios imo nfa.

    Tekton M-Lore Speaker Review

    I have these speakers and they're dogshit - I said so 2 years ago on here. The DIY speakers I have are better. The commercial brand speakers I have are better. $750 for an ugly, bad sounding speaker is laughable when you can get dozens of speakers that look and sound better for less. Amir is...

    $300 DAC with reliable power down / power up behavior

    My Topping D30Pro has no issues starting back up when power has gone out. I got mine from Apos for $300, but that appears not in stock there for $300, currently.

    What IEMs do you own?

    Etymotic HF5's - with foam tips the isolation was incredible, loved these for flying but ultimately broke them at the plug on a flight. Brainwavz B100 or 150? - liked these, lost them amongst my stuff, wish I could find them KZ something - tangly cord, broke them at the cord to ear-piece...

    EAC has posted DIY speakers, Samba and Overnight Sensation measurements

    I think you're on to something here. The old RS28 could be crossed lower. I used the 8" version of the Dayton RS (RS225) with various tweeters crossed around 1200-1500Hz with 24db slopes. I was doing this 15 years ago with a used $150 head unit in a car, but everything sounded great. I think if...

    What Budget Speakers Do You Enjoy?

    JBL 530's are great when they're at $250. C-Notes were great when they were $100, then PE went nuts with price increases on everything.

    Is it acceptable to run a subwoofer/subwoofers in an apartment building?

    It does depend on the nature of the other tenants and is a give-and-take like Doodski says. I wouldn't expect peace and quiet in an apartment complex with a lot of college aged tenants, and therefore wouldn't live there if that was a personal requirement and it was in my means to choose. I...

    Under $200 headphones (or iems) for sleeping.

    I toss and turn, too. I usually am OK. I set the DAP close enough that theres slack to turn over. I have a similar use case as OP - I need music to fall asleep but my partner likes silence. I had a cheap bluetooth headband with speakers that wasnt too bad, but it eventually died.

    are tower speakers necessary in 2022?

    People talking about lower extension with towers and I'm doing the opposite with my smaller speakers. I went with a smallish sealed enclosure as a natural high pass. I don't need to push my small woofers low, that's what the sub is for.
