I went into speakers before headphones, so I thought I was getting such a great deal based on price/performance. If I went into HPs first, I probably would have been happy with HD650s and a Bottlehead Crack, but that ain't the nature of this game. You know you're an audiophile when you can give heaps of audio advice just when you're 15 from the constant flow of gear through your room (house, for those responsible/old enough)
Hi, Money Tree! I'm only 13 so.. No job.

Be surprised what jobs you can get at 13. Some stores will hire, or...I don't know...walk dogs or something. :P

In the UK nowhere will hire you at 13, they passed a law or something. You can still get informal jobs though.

When you've got several Sansa Clips for different collections (I'm actually thinking about getting one for my classical, since the tagging for classical is so different on account of different performances of the same work and the composer being relevant, and it would be tedious to sift through my entire collection all in one place).

^^^^^

same here with the Clip lol

 

 

when you use a sport wallet holder when working out to hold onto an E11 amp.

I have a few different microSDs. All labelled of course.beerchug.gif

Nice, might have to try that.

I would do just that, except that I've had a hell of a time with the built in firmware, and Rockbox has its interminable initialization sequence it has to do for its library so it wouldn't work well to just swap out cards.

You're very lucky getting $300 for your birthday at that age. At 13 I got a new skateboard (just the deck) and felt so happy. I'd recommend saving up for your first car so you can take all the ladies out, or if we were back to topic save up for that LCD-2. Your parents would probably tell you to turn your music down anyway if you get the speakers (assumption).

You know you can still play music via the file browser while the database initializes, right?

Ah hell...My family is frankly rich. I can probably have a car when I want one. Just harder to get things that my parents think are stupid. :(

Make your parents allow you to invest your money. If you play your cards right, you'll make a boatload of cash and get some great real-world experience.

I might have been aware of that at some point when reading through the manual, but I guess I never thought of that.

It's quite handy. I never need to do it with my Clip Zips, which only have 24-40GB of capacity and faster running internals, but my 80GB 5.5G Video does take a good little while to initialize.
