Uploaded it for you. Usually there are good ones at wallbase.cc ..

Which ones is controversial?  Both of them?

 

I'm kind of leaning towards the M-80s because they're more rugged but I'm not too keen on the style.  I like the looks of the ESW9 better but if I went with them I'd probably have to put some kind of protective coat over the cups or something.

 

How big are the Spirit Ones?  I want something that stores away pretty easily.

 

Also, I'll respond to your PM a little later when I've got time to write something substantive.

The first thing I did after my last breakup was reunite with a friend I hadn't seen in months and it helped a lot. 

 

Other things I did: fasting, incredibly long walks, and drugs.

 

^ None of that helped at all!  Time did, though, along with making a genuine effort to befriend coworkers.  So yeah, I'd recommend reconnecting with more distant friends of yours and generally enriching your Platonic relationships for awhile - they're great!

 

 

This is a nice venting song.

I have a 1 TB drive partitioned so that there is 600 GB to C: (where the OS is) and another 400 GB so data. Is it still possible to clone to the drive? I will need a few SSD in raid, which will cost quite a bit I think.

Please take good care of yourself. I am still young, so don't have much experience with relationships. I was burnt and hurt with my first love a few years ago, and that made me a person that won't commit easily, because if I do I will commit too much and in the end get hurt instead. Being single has some advantages too...it gives me time to make myself a better person, in the hope that someday somewhere somehow someone will accept me for who I am...

Yes I find asio in mediamonkey buggy and it stalls while starting eventhough I got an ssd, compared to xmplay.

 

The ASIO is built in, which is another thing I love about Jriver. The most painless media player I have ever used.

As long as the space used on your OS partition is less than the size of your target SSD, it should be doable. There are upgrade kits like this, that include everything you need. No personal experience with that particular one, but I've successfully upgraded a few notebooks to SSD using Acronis True Image. AFAIK there's no option to clone to a target in raid though.

I have used up 600 GB on the OS partition. So I guess I am beyond salvation? biggrin.gif

 

Anyway, I have an old Phenom 955 inside, and an old Radeon HD 6870. I think it will just be better off to build a new comp and go balls out with it, with Ivybridge cpu, GTX 690, 32 GB ram, SSD in raid, etc etc.

 

Because I use my comp to feed the DAC, and I use my headphone near my computer, I need to be careful when selecting parts so that they make the least noise possible...

ESW9 vs M-80 vs ???

 

Any opinions

Give THIS a read.

WOW...., I already love it, simple, smart and fast, thank you for recommending it, but I find it strange that it shows 32bit as output, although I specified same as source! any advice?

I meant the Spirit One is controversial. The M-80s and ESW9s are pretty well-loved so far as I know.

 

In terms of size, I want to say the Spirit One is kind of similar in size to the ESW9 and folds the same way. I like all three tbh and don't think you could go wrong with any one of them.

 

Spirit One is the most comfortable for me, with the other two being a toss up. The Spirit One has a rather clean and balanced sound to my ears. The M-80 is the easiest to listen to with a slightly darker but less clear and detailed sound. The ESW9 is on the slightly brighter side, a bit splashy / ringy up top but still well balanced enough and detailed.

The thing is how do you go about doing this where you have the exact amount of space available on your SSD while maintaining the proper size so the drive doesn't garbage up.

Hmm...I am not sure about that part. I just leave it at 24 bits. In Tools -> Option -> Audio -> DSP & output format, it says ASIO bypasses that and uses hardware native bitdepth.

 

One more thing, you can choose the view by pressing Ctrl + 1 to 5. The theater view looks amazing, it will take up the whole screen so it's not very practical, unless you are listening to music only.

Thank you, please may you advise which Setting I should change?Capture.JPG

A little music dump, I hope no one finds it unnecessary and redundant:

 

Moto Boy - Beat Heart

 

The Tough Alliance - Neo Violence

 

Familjen - Det snurrar i min skalle

 

Kite - Johnny Boy

 

Kite - I give you the morning

 

Le Sport - Tell no one about tonight

Hmm I am actually not 100% sure, for mine I leave my bitdepth at 24 bits, because that is my hardware native bits. Oh, I just checked the place that you checked, and it seems that mine is outputtting as 32 bits too.

 

Oh well, I don't really care since it's ASIO and it's lossless playback anyway. Here is some info on the bitdepth on Jriver: http://wiki.jriver.com/index.php/Audio_Bitdepth
 

Seems like it uses the highest bitdepth that the hardware can support. On ASIO, the output bitdepth selection is ignored in your screenshot. So technically, it's meaningless for me to put it at 24 bits too, since it's ignored.
