The asset/expense argument is a very valid one. I fell down the rabbit hole a little later in life than 13 - at that age, it was more about swapping records and CDs with people to listen to as much music as possible in the era before Spotify, YouTube and (ahem) Napster, so in effect the same principle but for less tangible results. When I did embrace audiophilia, I went through much the same realisation though - in order to hear all the possible permutations of sonic excellence churned out by the industry, you don't have to purchase them all outright - you can merely loan them from someone (be it a store or a private investor) and then pass them on to another willing investor at a later date for a modest depreciation fee. while you carry on your search for the perfect sound.
In fact, due to the way the audio market holds value, if you are very shrewd (or more likely, lucky) you can sometimes pass them back into the crowd for a small profit. This was the real epiphany for me - as long as I don't have too much audio gear "on the go" at any one time for the sake of my bank balance, I can listen to things which would otherwise be outside of my reasonable price bracket and then "re-use" the money invested to listen to something else.
Of course, trying to draw the line at where "too much" starts is the difficult part, but that is a separate topic...

Preamp for volume control of left, right channels?
Does anyone know of a preamp-like device that can adjust the level of the left and right channels with either a pan/balance control or separate left/right volume controls? I want to be able to turn down the right channel a few DB to compensate for partial hearing loss. I'd love something with the footprint and pricing of the various JDS Labs, Mayflower and/or Schitt boxes but haven't seen anything on the market that can do pan/balance other than high-end headphone amps. Thanks!

Drop x Panda buzzing noise
This buzzing noise started to happen like a month ago. It was just static noise after being paired to the phone, then it getting louder and louder now, whenever I try to connect it on Bluetooth, it goes crazy buzzing sounds, for like five minutes and non-stop both earpieces. It also can't be controlled with a sound bar or anything, just goes loud so that I can't wear it at all. But, weirdly it stops when I connect it to my laptop using the bundle 3.5mm cable. What do you think of this problem? I'm gonna contact the customer support team, but this is so uncomfortable to use it. Sometimes it goes like 10 minutes. Did anyone have the same issue as mine?
