Remember to do this responsibly. people who are not use to this level of fidelity might either:

A. -spontaneously combust

B. -crap their pants

C. -develop a serious head-fi addiction, in which things start off innocently enough, but end up on the brink of insanity due to                 

        insomnia and compulsive buying of gear and Hi-res music files, among other craziness that comes with.

C. -give you a condescending look like you've got it all wrong and then want you to try their precious Beats to teach you a thing or

      two about what real music sounds like. Ha!

D. -head explodes while crapping their pants!

This may have already been posted, I'll admit I didn't go through all 24 pages.But this oldie but goody from mkmelt in 2004. It's a riff on an old WWII joke:



Perhaps the following disclaimer should come with all tube headphone amplifiers.


Alles kopfphonerlisteners non-technischens! Das tubenmachine is nicht for gefengerpoken und mittengrabben. Oderwise is easy schnappen der springenverk, blowenfus, und poppencap, mit spitzensparken, und smokentubes. Geverken inside der tubenmachine is fur der experten only. Is nicht fur geverken inside by das dumpkopfen. Das rubbernecken amateuren keepen das cotton-picken hands in das pockets. Just relaxen, enjoyen der musik, und vatchen das pretty glowentubes.


When I saw this thread, I immediately thought of the whole Singlepower bruhahah.

That's an oldie.

I remember running into it's original form in the NSWGR in the mid sixties.

I ran into it again when working for Telstra in the  late eighties, and sporadically ever since.

Just to make Amos homesick as he listens to this short clip on his phones..


I was up at Katoomba about a fortnight ago to go for a hike down to Fern Glen and further. A flock of about 20 currawongs flew into a tree and serenaded my group as we started the hike...

Nice one! Thanks for the video. Nostalgic indeed. My old house was in Canberra near bushland and I used to awake every morning to a chorus like that.

Well it is air turbulence inside your ear.

we just invented a new head-fi term. I can see it's usage:

"The bass is tight and punchy but there is a bit of turbulence at about 35Hz reducing the smoothness of the bass"

I tried smoking some salmon once..... wasn't really all that great. They have to be pretty dry to stay lit.  The  only effect it had was that cats followed me around for a few days.
