The only obvious problem I can find with it is that it doesn't record. But that can be...
Ok, so I am reading another newsgroup and someone brings up the point that ripping (uncompressed .wav) HDCDs strips this incoding! And that playing them back trough an external DAC (reciever) won't have the "HD" even if the reciever has an "HD processor" circuit Can anyone comment on this?
Thanks for the responces guys! I'm sifting through it now. Quote: Originally Posted by sgprater I may play around a bit, just to see if I can get something working. Question: do you want your music player to be a locally-run application, or a remote X application residing on the same server as your music files, that is then exported to your local X window? Each option has its pros and cons. The idea is to have a playback pc connected to...

Help! Ok, the computer I set up for Mrs Redneck this past Christmas is great except for one small problem: the Compaq CD burner sounds like a jet engine. I would like recommendations for both DVD and CD burners that are quiet. Feel free to use this as a gripe thread if you have one you really don't like. I'll edit in the part number/oem for the Compaq drive in the next few days. Thanks. AR
Readers Digest's Beethoven's 9 Symphones Boxed Set (RDS-34)/Col. Sanders' All Mandolin Band (On an added note, this RDS-34 is a must have for vinyl junkies into Beethoven and can be picked up for next to nothing on eBay all the time.)
