I scored the Sennheiser HD600s for $100 earlier. Anyone who knows their stuff can recommend an amp? I assume hooked to my Denon home theater receiver I don’t need anything?

But hooked to my desktop what is a good bang for your buck? Amp? DAC? ELI5 please

My main system is Schiit Yggdrasil A2 > goldpoint passive preamp > monoblock Schiit Tyrs > SR1a with the transformer interface and I wouldn't mind downgrading to the Piety > JAR600 if I had to. It's a phenomenal little amp.
Yeah, everyone is raving about it, so I figured I'd get one for s&g's...

In today's "hootpie doesn't know what the fuck he's doing with his computer life" saga:

- Cancelled the 7950x from Amazon because I found it $25 cheaper at a local shop
- Thought about ordering the 7950x from the local shop, but didn't
- Thought about ordering a 7900x but didn't
- Ordered a 5800X3D instead :rofl:
This is after the price cuts?

I just had a AMD tech on their store "hang up on me" in chat when I called them out on their false advertising. He said it was that way for antibot measures. I replied with "BS" and he ended the chat.

Ah, you mean Digital River? The one that received my return (and by that I mean I never actually physically received it, just rejected) and for 3 weeks held my refund hostage?

For the people using earphones, does anyone use foam tips? I bought a bunch from Comply like 10+ years ago for my Ultimate Ears Triple.Fi 10s. Anything better / cheaper these days?

which false advertising?
They list numerous bundles with varying discounts that are priced way more than buying the GPU and CPU separately. The 6950XT and 7950X show a $525 discount on the bundle, but if you buy them separately it's only $150 off, which is still a decent discount, but not the $525 they say...
