    first I know norman history like persian

    and LOL scandinavian people ARE germanic

    Scandinavia is a region in Northern Europe, with strong historical, cultural, and linguistic ties. The majority national languages of the region, and their many dialects, belong to the Scandinavian dialect continuum, and are mutually intelligible North Germanic languages.

    The Normans (Norman: Normaunds; French: Normands) are an ethnic group that arose in Normandy, a northern region of France, from contact between indigenous Franks and Gallo-Romans, and Norse Viking settlers

    Ageless read about the corded ware and beaker cultures

    The Corded Ware culture (German: Schnurkeramik; French: céramique cordée; Dutch: touwbekercultuur) comprises a broad archaeological horizon of Europe between c. 2900 BCE – circa 2350 BCE, thus from the late Neolithic, through the Copper Age, and ending in the early Bronze Age.[2] Corded Ware culture encompassed a vast area, from the Rhine on the west to the Volga in the east, occupying parts of Northern Europe, Central Europe and Eastern Europe.[2]

    According to Haak et al. (2017), the Corded Ware people were genetically closely related to the people of the Yamna culture (or Yamnaya), "documenting a massive migration into the heartland of Europe from its eastern periphery," the Eurasiatic steppes.[3] The Corded Ware culture may have disseminated the Proto-Germanic and Proto-Balto-Slavic Indo-European languages. The Corded Ware Culture also shows genetic affinity with the later Sintashta culture, where the proto-Indo-Iranian language may have originated.[1]

    The Sintashta culture, also known as the Sintashta-Petrovka culture[1] or Sintashta-Arkaim culture,[2] is a Bronze Age archaeological culture of the northern Eurasian steppe on the borders of Eastern Europe and Central Asia, dated to the period 2100–1800 BCE.[3] The culture is named after the Sintashta archaeological site, in Chelyabinsk Oblast, Russia.

    The Sintashta culture is widely regarded as the origin of the Indo-Iranian languages. The earliest known chariots have been found in Sintashta burials, and the culture is considered a strong candidate for the origin of the technology, which spread throughout the Old World and played an important role in ancient warfare.[4] Sintashta settlements are also remarkable for the intensity of copper mining and bronze metallurgy carried out there, which is unusual for a steppe culture.[5]

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alans

    The Alans (Latin: Alani) were an Iranian nomadic pastoral people of antiquity.[1][2][3][4][5]

    The name Alan is an Iranian dialectical form of Aryan.[2] Possibly related to the Massagetae, the Alans have been connected by modern historians with the Central Asian Yancai and Aorsi of Chinese and Roman sources, respectively.[6] Having migrated westwards and become dominant among the Sarmatians on the Pontic Steppe, they are mentioned by Roman sources in the 1st century AD.[1] At the time, they had settled the region north of the Black Sea and frequently raided the Parthian Empire and the Caucasian provinces of the Roman Empire.[1] From 215–250 AD, their power on the Pontic Steppe was broken by the Goths.[4]

    Upon the Hunnic defeat of the Goths on the Pontic Steppe around 375 AD, many of the Alans migrated westwards along with various Germanic tribes. They crossed the Rhine in 406 AD along with the Vandals and Suebi, settling in Orléans and Valence. Around 409 AD, they joined the Vandals and Suebi in the crossing of the Pyrenees into the Iberian Peninsula, settling in Lusitania and Carthaginensis.[7] The Iberian Alans were soundly defeated by the Visigoths in 418 AD and subsequently surrendered their authority to the Hasdingi Vandals.[8] In 428 AD, the Vandals and Alans crossed the Strait of Gibraltar into North Africa, where they founded a powerful kingdom which lasted until its conquest by the Byzantine Emperor Justinian I in the 6th century AD.[8]

    The Alans who remained under Hunnic rule founded a powerful kingdom in the North Caucasus in the Middle Ages, which ended with the Mongol invasions in the 13th century AD. These Alans are said to be the ancestors of the modern Ossetians.[1]

    The Alans spoke an Eastern Iranian language which derived from Scytho-Sarmatian and which in turn evolved into modern Ossetian.[2][9][10]

    Yeah that's all fair I guess, it's just weird to be so specific as to say you have norman blood and then say it's gaulic when the whole reason we have a notion of normans is because they weren't considered as being the same as the peoples that occupied the parts of former Gaul that they invaded and were eventually settled into

    It's like saying "I'm Irish (English)"

    Saxons are a Germanic people, like Pashtun are an Iranic people, Dutch are a Germanic people like Kurds are an Iranic people, Franks are a Germanic people like Balochs/Lurs are Iranic etc...

    Right, that's because you're confusing the Gaul's and the Saxons, or don't possibly comprehend how the time tables for this stuff is?

    Germanic people lived in the area from prior migrations, such as the Anglos/Saxons/Franks. Those are not Celtic peoples.

    Also proto germans ARE related to the celtic peoples being under the Indo European language branch.

    I'm also not saying the Normans were germans, they are germanic. Those two things are completely different ideas for me.

    I think this might be confusing because Germany is a country and Iran is a country, so people can be Iranian as their nationality. Like a Kurdish Iranian, or Armenian Iranian etc.

    However Iranic or Germanic I'm just implying the base of the culture is related to this group, i.e. the etymology of their group is from the same recent source (relatively)

    Indo-European language tree

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indo-European_languages

    There are about 445 living Indo-European languages, according to the estimate by Ethnologue, with over two thirds (313) of them belonging to the Indo-Iranian branch.[3] The most widely spoken Indo-European languages by native speakers are Spanish, Hindustani (Hindi-Urdu), English, Portuguese, Bengali, Punjabi, and Russian, each with over 100 million speakers, with German, French, Marathi, Italian, and Persian also having more than 50 million. Today, nearly 42% of the human population (3.2 billion) speaks an Indo-European language as a first language, by far the highest of any language family.

    During the nineteenth century, the linguistic concept of Indo-European languages was frequently used interchangeably with the racial concepts of Aryan and Japhetite.[5]

    Yea, that's all you need for headphones, I got the audioengine DAC and it was a world of difference, and just upgraded bose to their speakers and it's soo clean. But since I hardly ever pop on headphones, mostly just listen to off monitor speakers it would be noticeable to go from a dac/amp built in one to some fancier tube setup with seperate preamp, dac, and amp.

    And for the price those new Senn's better be damn perfect!! I have the 650s right now and man they're nice, not much need for a closed back, lucky pretty private and secluded with concrete walled condo so can blast stuff without much worry. But if I do move away I might have to splurge, I do got to find somewhere to give them a listen!

    yeah built-in DACs are usually no good -- i used to run adam a7x monitors through a apogee duet but got rid of the set-up as i rarely listen to music at my desktop at home.

    i use the 820s at work the majority of the time. our office is pretty open and thought it may be odd if my colleagues overhear me listenening to pig destroyer.
