Congrats on the new iMac by the way, how are you enjoying it?

I never enjoyed apple's desktops, but I do love their laptops. I was wondering if a mac desktop is worth owning at least.



LOVE IT! And finally have a big enough hard drive in it to store all of my music. It's super fast. 3tb hard drive. And the body is so thin and lean. The screen is gorgeous.

It's plugged into a brand new iMac. Maybe that makes a difference, but I hear no ringing, and I'm trying to make myself hear it. No such luck.

Ditto, really fun version...
I need to do something about the storage/streaming here, have thing on a number of smaller hard drives hooked in to different computers, 1 portable hard drive already failed. Probably time for a dedicated server, put it on the list...

Hmmm, haven't, seems like a good buy if that's so. Do they LOOK as good as the IM07's though? Hot red color, very cool.
By the way, DrBlue, Thinksound On1, through Ray Samels HR-2, really rock! They seen to need the good amp to drive them, seem so so through just, say, X3. Really enjoying them, though, good tip!

Great 70's band...rediscovered this recently doing Netfilx catch up on old Dr Who episodes. My 16 year old loves these, watching them with her (for her the 2nd or 3rd time through). I was knocked out; they built a whole episode on this song (get to feel cool instead of old when I can explain the reference/joke to my teen daughter smily_headphones1.gif)


OK, time for iem isolation test (otherwise known as "mowing the lawn")

one last music post (for now, anyway)...a friend posted this on Facebook, Lady Day, dig the timing of her singing, the catch of her voice (and the swinging band). If you like some modern singers (Madeline Peyroux comes to mind quickly), dig the source...

nah, the im50s are black, no cool red color!  but apparently less intrusive bass than the im70s and

less detail, but rock for EDM... are the im70s worth 120 buckaroos to you doctor jazz or anyone else

who has them?  I'm digging the re700s which after burn in are very musical and a great phone for

rock and EDM....musical with some detail...and 32ohm, sound great right out of portable sources....

 

by the way, you should all experience of analogue musicality of NOS dacs, non oversamplking

old style phillips chips that have less of a digital sound are more of a coherent brain friendly sound.

you can get them on ebay, but no portables currently exist other than the Muse 1543 which is only

about 60$.  my buddy Ben at MOJO audio upgrades the capacitors and output stage and makes them

really sing for not much more and they really have a great sound that is different from dragonfly, GOUT

etc.  worth discovering!

The IM70 IS bass heavy, again didn't like them with lesser amplification, even X3/National didn't cut it. GO100 and Ray Samuels able to put bass in its place, makes it an enjoyable ism, but that makes it less desirable for throwing in a bag and going about your business with a lesser source. Powered appropriately, though, it really sounds nice for rock, music with drive (i'd bet for ddm)
Speaking of sources, for those looking for inexpensive, good player (imo), I'm enjoying the Samsung YP-G70, the 5 inch screen iPod Touch wannabe, using the Neutron music player, which sounds great (better than stock, found it better sounding on previousl phones than Poweramp, though Poweramp is more user friendly, and Neutron seems to slow phone down, so I ultimately removed both of them (use DAPs for music mostly, anyway). On a Geek thread someone recommended PlayerPro, which I never tried, think I'll use the trial version, seems to at least have a nice UI. Right now, since I don't have all the phone stuff on the Samsung player, so it's very fast. I'd say for the current discounted prices, <$100 in a number of places (think I spent about $60), it's a better buy than a Clip (though it's not as small and cute). I see there are sites with rooting info, going to check that out at some point. I'm sure it's no iBasso DX90, but it sounds pretty good to me with Neutron (add $5 for Neutron).
Sounds worthwhile getting a Muse for about $60, compare it to the other stuff in house and coming. I'd be interested in sending it to MOJO-how would I work it? Have it sent directly there (after letting them know, of course(, get it at home and contact them to send it from here? How much, about, is it, do you know? Inquiring minds and all that. Have the Muse in my eBay watch list as of now, along with the Oppo DVD 970HD I'm bidding on that I figure should make a decent transport to feed the DA in my Peachtree preamp/DA (or another DA).
Whew, gotta go, street fair in town, Spring Fling, my wife volunteered us for a booth, later...

Gotta hear this-Dogwalk/Lawn mower discoveries:


Now, if you are interested in an entry point for free jazz, this is early Ornette Coleman. Despite being the beginnings of what they call "free jazz", it is hoppy, cheerful, a good way to dip one's toes in the water of the "new thing" (hard to know what to call this stuff...something from the 1950's and 60's stopped being "new" or "avante gard" ages ago...)



The bass player for Ornette, Charlie Haden, has a daughter who's done stuff I've posted, here's one that positively floats...


She started out in a Power Punk band,That Dog,,, and you know I'm a sucker for Power Punk!!!



In an attempt to reestablish my indie cred...know the LP version of this tune by Pere Ubu, what a version on David Sanborn's old TV show!





"And We Bid You Goodnight"


(as an aside, in isolation competition, the long time champion, Etymotic Research ER4P, is still champ, beating out the Doppio, Heaven V, and the Monster Earth Wind and Fire in making the mowing enjoyable!!!)

(Aside #2-WKCR.org is having its annual country music festival...if you like country music at all, or are curious about classic country, great place to hear some great stuff!)
Tune in starting 12pm this Sunday for WKCR's annual Country Music Festival! This year's theme is Texas Country, so expect to hear music by country music legends such as Ernest Tubb, Willie Nelson, and Waylon Jennings, but also by lesser-known artists hailing from the Lone Star state. Listeners will have the opportunity to learn more about the state's vibrant regional scenes, with segments dedicated to the music of Austin, Lubbock, and Luckenbach, as well as to various musical sub-genres, from Western Swing to Border Country. The festival will conclude on Tuesday night with an 8-hour tribute to honor the music and memory of George Jones, who passed away last year.

Darn, had a bid in for Oppo DV970HD to use as a transport, top bid for the past few days. I knew someone would pounce the last minute, was watching, still couldn't get in fast enough to beat the 15 second bids that topped my highest bit, crap, back to the drawing board.
At least my off againon again Sqeezrbox is on tonight, have a source for my stereo. Back to the bidding wars, it's a jungle out there confused_face.gif

You mention some good music above.  Loved the Petra Goes to the Movies album from last year. Pere Ubu, saw them a bunch of times starting in '79.  You do know they started a few years after Devo in Ohio. Somewhere in my record collection I have the Datapanik In The Year Zero ep, released in  '78, that was the first time I heard them.  And who can't resist "Let's take the skinheads bowling" by Camper Van...

Frisell and Ornette Coleman can never go wrong.

 

Cheers.

Thanks, glad you enjoyed them, have fun posting these things. Petra Goes to the Movies is a great album, love the one she did before as much or more, when she covers "The Who Sell Out" accapella. Pere Ubu are just out there, saw them as well, one of the strangest shows I've seen (Arto Lindsay is in the same ballpark). Love that they came from the midwest, probably had to do with the lack of irony in the presentation, this was just who they were! Camper...are just fun, one of these "bad" bands I love to listen to (the Holy Modal Rounders fall into the same category, not for musical perfectionists, but have a spirit and exuberance that make them so much fun. Having a blast, great to hear from a fellow afficianato of oddball music

Hahaha, that definitely persuades me to at least experiment a mac in a best buy store.

 

Thanks for your opinion, I might purchase one when I see no reason to use my desktop for gaming any longer.

 

 

 

Wow, wait, you have a 3tb hard drive that goes incredibly fast while having a beautiful screen+body?

 

Oh right, this is actually something I CAN buy, since I have never bought an inbuilt computer/monitor.

 

Thanks for the reminder eric, time for me to eye that beaut. :beerchug:

 

 

 

And how are those pandora hope VI going?

 

Any new insights from them, or are they burning in?
