Audioengine A5+ vs. Emotiva Airmotiv 5

An atypical post on my part but indirectly related to photography since many of us listen to music while editing. I wanted to upgrade my sound setup in the office and auditioned the Audioengine A5+ and Emotiva Airmotiv 5.

Here's the setup:

MacBook Pro
TOSLINK to Mini cable
Schiit Bifrost DAC "Uber board"
RCA output

10 Things Millenials Won't Tell You

Yup, this pretty much captures the essence of the millenials.

Social commentary is a consistent theme on this blog. It stems from the fact that the industry is chock-full of young people, most of whom are millenials. The unrealistic expectations and poor professionalism married to a high level of independence and creativity is confounding at best.

So when I came across this article, I had a read through it. It validates many of my suspicions and sadly does little to refute my problems with the millenials.

For the record. I lie just outside the Gen Y lines. I think they consider me Gen X. But I see lots of myself in Gen Y.

Here's the problem with each finding. I think it's implicit but the article doesn't go far enough.

1. Millenials blame the parents for the way they are. Sure. You can blame the parents. You can blame the world. But at what point does someone assume responsibility for their own actions, their own life, their own results? You're misunderstand? Bitch, please.

2. Millenials wanna be the wealthiest 1% of the population. And I want a pony. The thing we have in common is neither of us are working towards that goal.
