Its that time again, rock on and rock out!
On my list of purchases for tomorrow, it is Bandcamp Friday after all
Courtesy of Roon Radio, I’ve just discovered Youn Sun Nah https://i.imgur.com/bQ3f8s0.png
Everything from scat to very good covers of Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman’ and Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Hurt’.
Context: I’ve just built a second tube headphone amp
based on the original WAD HD83 design, albeit with the newer HD3S circuit board layout similar to this one:
V2 has the original mains and output transformers, but also has his and hers outputs (4 pin DIN, not truly balanced, but there are individual output transformers) and a Khadas Tone Board DAC shoe-horned into it, connected to an RPi 4 endpoint running RoPieee. I found a good used pair of HD580 headphones (I’m a sucker for these classics) on eBay a few months back, so we now have 2 pairs. After a mutual Melody Gardot listening session (first live performance we went to as a couple at London Palladium in 2010. We also saw her at the Wiener Staatsoper in Vienna in 2018) sitting in bed this evening, herself went to sleep and I continued listening to whatever Roon Radio cued up my way.
I have a feeling the new bedroom rig may soon be my favourite Roon setup.
Oh snap!!! New Wheel release coming. The new single is out, it’s really good. I purchased their discography not too long after discovering them last year. Killer band
