    Less than 10K Android phone around 3~4k

    Had a very faint recollection of someone being unable to proceed with the initial Android setup without a SIM - turns out I'm wrong. Thanks for clearing it up.

    Less than 10K Android phone around 3~4k

    Looking for suggestions to buy a Android phone around 3~4k. Fairly new to the Android environment, and paranoid about most apps and their (what I feel are unreasonable) permission demands. Right now run a rooted and stripped down version of Android on my primary phone (no Google services, no...

    FS: Others Unused items sale (PC LED Strip, HDMI Cables, Dead LGA1155 Mainboard, Steelseries Apple Headphone, Mi Band 1, Asus Backlit Keyboard, more TBA..)

    Received the Mi Band. Works as it should. Kudos to @Kilroyquasar for taking pains to list and ship a low-value item.

    Audiophiles Assemble - There goes Legendary SSL2+ burning a hole in my pocket

    More than JACK, it is the underlying ALSA layer that I find tricky to deal with. As a longtime Linux user, I've never found ALSA easy to work with, especially with me being an audio novice. And once PulseAudio was mature enough for regular use (sometime around 2010), I never really had to go...

    Audiophiles Assemble - There goes Legendary SSL2+ burning a hole in my pocket

    @ankur1211 @red dragon : Thank you for the recommendations. Just realised that by mentioning the guitar amp (the cheap super-finicky amp that came with the guitar and which I don't use) I may have misled you into thinking that I connect to the interface via an amp. I plug in the guitar directly...

    Flipkart deals

    Excellent. Hope you like it. I like mine so much (and found the offer price so tempting) that I went ahead and ordered another pair. Amazingly, it arrived the very same day today. For once, well done Flipkart!

    Need to buy oven

    You certainly can cook in multiple racks. But it requires a bit of practice, and some trial and error. This is because the heat signature will differ for each rack (depending on the placement w.r.t. the heating element, the air flow, etc.), which means you may have to re-arrange the racks a...

    Need to buy oven

    OTGs (nearly every model, except the very small/cheap ones) are in fact convection ovens - having a heating element + a fan to circulate the hot air. You are probably confusing convection mode with microwave+convection mode. With microwave+convection modes, you get the benefit of faster...

    Flipkart deals

    Afraid you'll be disappointed if you prefer a heavy bass. These are essentially near-field monitors - certainly not loud enough for anything other than as desktop speakers. That said, I don't like heavy bass and use this (on my computer desktop) for movies/music/speech and love the clarity...

    Flipkart deals

    Yes. Has RCA, balanced and AUX wired inputs. Also has a mode where you can choose to play from every input all at once (though I have no idea where it may be useful).

    Just noticed this (and to think I bought it for ~11.5k just a few weeks ago :oops:): https://www.flipkart.com/jbl-professional-104-compact-desktop-reference-60-w-bluetooth-studio-monitor/p/itm7c5820c670603 This might be a decent deal too (with the 10% SBI offers)...

    https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B07HB1554N While not technically a lightning deal, I've been looking to buy this for some time now and haven't seen it listed at this price.

    Audiophiles Assemble - There goes Legendary SSL2+ burning a hole in my pocket

    Afraid I haven't really spent a lot of time with the interface yet - still trying to get it to play well with JACK + Guitarix. Palm-muting... well, have only been practising for an year - so, not quite there yet. There's one song I've tried it with, Eagle Eye Cherry's Save Tonight - again, not...

    Audiophiles Assemble - There goes Legendary SSL2+ burning a hole in my pocket

    @ankur1211 @red dragon - Ended up buying the Motu M2. Had to go beyond my budget some (cost around 16.5K ) , but went for it for a couple of reasons: 1. Has fairly well documented Linux support and a recent history of development/bug fixes. 2. It's much-touted headphone output. I figured I may...

    Audiophiles Assemble - There goes Legendary SSL2+ burning a hole in my pocket

    @ankur1211 Thank you! Appreciate the details. As for me, I've only been practising the guitar for an year or so and looking at something for casual/practice recording, as a small step up. May also use it to record and save from old cassette tapes. Looking for something with basic I/O - an input...
