Ah, no Raptor for me. No room to kick back and listen to my Etys!

Here's a pic of my work office rig I took today for another thread. Parasound zcustom equipment, with my integrated iPod. Speakers for when I don't care about noise for the neighbor offices, which is most of the time

I want to know which CD's those are sitting on the desk...

 

BTW, I'm a retired Army pilot - thus my curiosity about what you fly... smile.gif

Those particular CD's are "Guitars" by Mike Oldfield, an interesting album that was recommended to me, "Beyond the Desert" by Dave Beegle, who is one of my all-time favorite guitarists and I LOVE his work, despite him being a small-market Colorado unknown, and "Red" by Sammy Hagar, which was a recent acquisition.  Playing on the iPod there is "La Luna" by Sarah Brightman.

 

I fly C-17's.

Tubular Bells is one of my favorite all time albums. I have never heard Guitars, but will check it out!

Do you use the "Husky" call sign? I hear C-17 pilots using it when they come in and out of TCM.

Yeah, "Guitars" was recommended by a guy that's a big Mike Oldfield fan.  Supposedly, every sound on the album is made by a guitar, including the percussive beats.  I think it's interesting.  I have "Tubular Bells" on hi-rez audio, DVD-A I think.

 

I used to be stationed at TCM.  The Husky call sign is a local trainer flight there, specific to TCM, so yeah, I used to use it.

Nice! It's not on MOG so I'll have to pony up and buy "Guitars."

Makes sense about the Call Sign - I hear it often so obviously they are local.

Fly safe

ps -  A small notebook PC makes a fabulous sourse too.

 

Old school is good

I'm a huge Mike Oldfield fan. If you like Tubular Bells then Tubular Bells 2 and Amarok will suit you. If you want to see the different directions he has gone in then try Platinum, Five Miles Out, QE2 or Crises. There's so much material out there he has never stopped recording since the early 70s

If so, I would like to trade you with something equal or greater in value... the Ultimate Ears Triple Fi 10

Hello all Ety fanssmile.gif. I have ER4P with resistor adapter from ebay and I have custom tips made by piotrus-g (The Custom Art). I love it very much.

 

I've recently acquired acoustic dampers (actually I will receive free samples from one of Knowles European distributors); I want to try NRB Mod. I know that someone has written that normally when you pull out the dampers from the headphones you will damage the dampers and that there is a way to avoid this. Can someone please describe once again this non-threatening method of pulling the dampers?
