When you spend $200+ on a cd player
post #4922 of 6356

When your sound card is probably worth more than your whole computer.

I got rid of my CD player....lol.

Buy a CD, rip it, put it back in the case. If I really wanted to play one I could use my DVD player, but why risk scratching it? wink_face.gif

This is why I never bought a 360.

All my discs are in pristine condition as well. It's funny because quite a few of the cases broken or cracked, just from getting stacked up carelessly and then toppled over/tossed around. I don't have enough shelf space for them all, so they get abused just being in the room.

 

But the discs inside are perfect.

All my old CD's, that I had from years ago, are not so great, and took a long, long time to get ripped with EAC.  So from 2008 (when I entered the digital music scene)  forward , any CD I buy gets ripped and then put away.

When it costs you more to recable your headphones than the headphones cost in the first place.

That's not audiophilia, that's just ********.

 

The labor should be no more than $100 and the cable itself... God I'm not even gonna start.

I can see it in the FS, 6 month old Koss KSC75's, lovingly cared for, but not used much anymore. Recabled 3 months ago with crystal piccolino cables and XLR jack.

Nice set of ear warmers, though.

Indeed, I only have full sized cans and I wear them proudly in public. Heck I took one of my Finals with my Dt 880's on [and I was listening to some smooth Jazz] It was fantastic really! But yea... I'm used to little isolation... <.< which kinda sucks but... hoping I'll win a pair of Dt1350's and finally hear what "ISOLATION" really is 

 

Know your an audiophile when you sell your text books a week b4 class is over to buy a Pre Modded Tube amp... of which there is only one :D
