Jk..I kinda still remember seeing them when I was really young. Like 5 months old or something..
I used to own a walkman from akai with automatic cassette direction reverse (and automatic tape kind recognition) and a seperate boxed 6 channel (batt. powered!) analog equalizer connected by a custom cable...damn that was mobile high end back in the days..those were the days... biggrin.gif

Did you know Steve Jobs got from one of his employee's Walkman (after his trip to Japan where he was amazed by the number of people carrying the Walkman and disk man) and dismantled it and asked his team to build a "New" device with such build quality..etc and after some years, the ipod came....

In a way the Sony brought us the ipod!!

Even the new Walkmans have an application to simulate the old cassette tapes

I like that my tapes still work...The Walkman is still a fun device.....

My cats have way better taste. Seriously, I have about four sets of speakers lying around and they only ever perch on the Usher BE718s. Like a pair of obsidian kitty guardians of the gate, in full stereo and color-coordinated to the speakers.

My college set-up: Dragonfly -> Gilmore Lite -> AD2000/HD600. Nice little set-up.

Nice layout, HeroricPenguin! I could certainly thrive with that.

How do you like those Audioengine A2's? I keep trying to maintain a desktop speaker setup that is mostly capable of full-range reproduction but it's becoming VERY frustrating.

I like the A2s a lot! They have a pretty mid-forward sound that I enjoy. No real thumping bass or lots of sparkle, but they're small and have a sound sig that I like a lot. They're not really hi-fi, but they're great for the purpose that I use them for. Don't expect miracles, but for $200, they're pretty great. I actually use them more than my headphones, which are much more expensive since they're a great, relaxing listen.

Really? Mine are bass cannons with the right song. They really work with what ever music you play with them I find.

The A2s are excellent bang for buck IMO. Placement is key to alleviate its oft cited shortfalls. Surprisingly they also respond very well to the source. I thought I'd heard its ceiling when it was fed by the Bifrost, but it scaled well to the Gungnir and yet again to the NAD M51.

I'm using them through my Bifrost, and I agree. I could hear A lot of noise and distortion through my on board sound card.
