All I'm saying is that the browser is not capable of performing any anti-malware scans by itself, which is what I thought Ham Sandwich was hinting at in one of his posts. I guess we're not understanding each other and talking about two different things...
Can you provide a link to the source of your information? According to Mozilla's website: Quote: Firefox launches your installed antivirus program to scan files when they finish downloading. In some cases this can cause a substantial delay or downloaded files may not be saved after the scan completes. 1. In the Location bar, type about:config and press EnterReturn. * The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear....

IE and Firefox don't have any built-in anti-whatever scanner. You'd have to install some plugin/addon for them to be able to do that. OP, this isn't the kind solution you were looking for, but maybe it'd be a good time to switch to a less...

Yes, but if it really is the case of a dirty PSU and low resistance headphones, wouldn't the hiss also be audible at higher sample rates? Like I said, at 44.1kHz it's there, but goes away as soon as I switch to 48, 96 or 192. I can only really hear it when...
I've always sticked to 24 bit-depth (since -- from what I've read -- it shouldn't really have any effect on the sound) and 44.1kHz sample rate to match the sample rate of the music I listen to (16/44.1kHz FLACs). My question is, would increasing the sample rate to 48, 96 or 192kHz impact the sound in any way? The reason I'm asking this is because I've noticed that the barely audible yet still annoying hiss (which I thought was the result of the sound card picking up...
Hi, I'm wondering if upgrading to Essence ST or STX, from my modded (AD8599 / BlackGate cap) X-Fi Xtreme Music that I'm using with HFI580s (quite happy with them, for now) would provide me with a noticeable SQ improvement. I guess what I'm looking for the most is improved soundstage, less analytical/digital sound, highs that don't make my ears bleed. I still play a lot of games, so I'm guessing this is the better way to go than some external audiophile sound card / DAC...
Not sure what type of music you're looking for, but if it's electronica then boomkat.com is the best place to buy from, hands down. They offer 320kbps (cheaper) and FLAC downloads. You can redownload your albums whenever you want in case of hd failures / accidental deletion / whatever, no need to ask them for access to your stuff. Nice interface. There's also: - rephlex.com - 320kbps and wave; the interface is kind of buggy (it's in beta) and you might run into some...
My docs suffered some near-fatal injuries in the process of moving all my stuff to a new apartment, which means I'm going to have to look for a new pair of headphones, preferably something a little bit better, under $300. The headphones I currently own are connected to my X-Fi sound card, I don't own an amp, though I'm planning to get one sometime in the future. Apart from some sibilance issues, I really liked the docs, so something similarly sounding, though with a...
I'm a newbie when it comes to this stuff, kudos for the guide, it really helped me find a few peaks here and there, but I have a question. Around 4.1kHz the volume in left headphone seems to be going more and more quiet as I go up. Then the right headphone goes quiet as well. A little later (still going up slowly), when both headphones are really quiet, I can clearly hear that the volume is getting louder in the right headphone until it gets back to normal, and then the...
Heh, turns out there were two tiny pieces of hair stuck under that thin layer of sponge. I didn't think about tearing it off until after I read your post, so thanks. They sound great once again.
