Yes, technically she's my fiancee. She's not a fan of the term simply because we've been together for so long (and engaged for so long). So for all intensive purposes she prefers wife(ish). I'm fine with it.

Fun story that involves Metal LPs today. My wife(ish) and I were out to dinner and we were deciding if we wanted to do something or just go home. I grinned and she knew exactly what I wanted to do...trip to the record store. 

 

She refused but of course eventually caved. On the way there we discussed how bored she got every time I went to the record store. I proposed a rule that I have a feeling we'll follow from now on. She has to flip through some stuff and buy something she's never heard of. Whether it be based on cover art or whatever.

 

Tonight I knew what I wanted. A copy of In Flames' A Sense of Purpose that I'd been eyeing for a few trips now. Went straight to it and picked it and was ready to go (I had promised to keep it short this time). We were held up by her eyeing something I'd also had my eye on for awhile. A copy of Baroness' Blue Record. She likes pretty things and man is that cover art gorgeous...

 

 

 

 

So we walked out with my record, and a copy of the Blue Record as well. I have a feeling we'll end up with their Red Record and Yellow & Green Record, too. Looking forward to it. 

 

I swear...I'm going to get her into music if it kills me (or our bank account). :D

 

Great choices in albums! Baroness is absolutely fantastic and I love their guitar tone not to mention their art work is absolutely stunning, I am actually thinking of getting a John Dyer Baizley (lead singer/guitarist in Baroness who also did the art for all their albums) inspired sleeve/s.

Any remotely skilled tech can service either one though, so it doesn't matter for some.

 

EDIT: You can also add AppleCare anytime within the first year of purchase where as most retailer plans / extended warranties directly through the companies have fairly limited windows for extension.

 

There are good things to be said about the products yes. On the whole, if you are a regular users, their support is fine. Just don't expect much beyond basic usage issues. Their trial in the enterprise world flopped and their pulling out.

 

But I digress.

 

This is a headphone forum - I see a lot of Mac users here using USB feeds into their DACs. No software required for the USB Mac->DAC setup in most cases, which is nice for the Mac users. I do plan to try my Bifrost by Apple USB to see how it works. The headphone out on a mac doubles as a toslink connection, but I've never seen a cable for it, at least not on the cheap. I'd like to give that a whirl for the heck of it. 

 

On the home front everything goes into my TV via HDMI and comes out via toslink. I'd like to just find a toslink switch to keep things simple. Ultimately I want to be able to switch from my PC and TV OUT as sources, but keep TV OUT to the main speakers at the same time. Think I need a splitter and a switch.

 Sorry to ask, but which thread is YKYAAW?  I'm either completely unfamiliar or can't parse out the acronym.

I opened a thread under the Music category thats getting little traffic. I'm looking for stuff I don't know about. New music. Hidden gems. 

If a few of you could share some titles/albums, that would be fantastic.

I haven't been here long, but I've noticed it too. There's probably just a higher requirement for not bashing or being rude vs other website forums.

It's all my fault. biggrin.gif

 

Someone said something about not listening to music with file compression, and I posted a relevant excerpt from the Beats website that said the Pros fixed file compression...

 

next thing you know
