17:22 DAC+Amp Recco
Joe bought a pair of Audioquest’s Nighthawks after Patrick’s review and writes, “I thought it might be time to buy my first dac+amp combo unit. I was curious, in your opinion, what pairs well with the Hawks.” Audioquest’s Dragonfly and Schiit’s Fulla 2 are great entry level options. (JDS Labs Element is great for home use!) There are some things you should do -before- you buy a DAC+Amp… like learn about FLAC, and upgrade your streaming services!
20:32 Google Drive Spam
John writes, “I’ve been getting notifications on my phone lately that someone is sharing a file to me google drive. If I click it on my phone i can view it. Then when I go into my drive, said file is there. The problem is these are unsolicited, and the ones I’ve been getting are… lets just say they are google Doc files offering me services.” We discuss Google Hangouts and Drive spam in the video!

Like Robert, who writes, “This past weekend me and my son went on a discovery flight at a flight school at our local airport. We both absolutely loved it.” Thanks, Robert… he sent pics for the video!!!
