Been learning/striving to listen at lower volumes. It's a struggle b/c when it sounds so great the ears and heart naturally crave more of it. Listening to favorite music at a benign ~75 dB just does not cut it for me oftentimes. I might as well li...

Short List of Amps I prefer over the Pass Labs XA25 or INT 25

sounds like a good idea WCSS; Zoom is a great online "venue" that handles multiple channels very well; Better than Google Meet on the audio side;

update: Hated the Audience AU24 SE!!! At first I heard "improvement" in bass--it took me a while to realize what was happening. Higher frequencies were being compressed and damped down. It was quite shocking to experience this effect. The Audience...
