My hero!  Its all about the individual in this hobby.  Sure we like to congregate in mass meets where we open portals to other dimensions of audio nirvana, but at the end of the day, it's me in my chair alone with music and beer.  And thats how it should be!

Pictures aren't the best quality.


How/can does the udac drive the D5000s just by itself (not with the e9)?


Not poorly.  It's difficult for me to hear any noticeable differences.  The uDAC *might be* slightly brighter and more energetic.  If you're on a budget, I don't think it'd be a bad choice.

Nice towel hanger cum headphone stand...I happen to have the exact same one - I found it at HomeSense. I think I'll hang some paper rolls too so my ESW9s don't get any nasty ridges in the headband.

I got mine at Bed Bath and Beyond for $15 or something.  It's kind of cheesy looking with the rolls, but I'd rather be practical and keep my headphones in good condition than be fashionable and ruin them.

Sorry Keph.  What brand are the UE cables?  They look very cool.

post #206 of 18387

Lots of reasons really:

1. no grid within grid view.  (I like to choose genre first, and then look at album covers)

2. no deleting source file within iTunes (unless you let iTunes manage your files, which I won't do)

3. app searching is retarded; no easy way to search within podcast type for example.

4. no easy way to switch genre thumbnails (must use 3rd party solution)

5. Any use of EQ will clip the sound on recordings close to 100dB.  Instead they should EQ like a preamp. 

6. slow

 

That's for starters. 

 

iTunes does most things really well but they don't give a crap about power users.

That's what WinAmp and foobar2000 are for. Windows Media Player doesn't even have an equalizer and is just as slow, but I use it for syncing my DAPs anyways.

Sorry for sounding like a total noob here, but I have no idea what the hell any of these things are (besides the DAPs and phones of course).
