YKYAAW you have 7171 posts on Head-Fi (I'm looking at you, Alchemist :p)

 

If you don't count the people who participate in the game threads (the ones where many of the posts are just one or two words, so they're not even real posts), and also don't count the ones who made the highest posts of all time (20,000-50,000+ posts!), I'm the top poster on Head-Fi. (In terms of quantity, not quality, of course.)

Just remember not to disclose any of the secret info related to the beta test.

 

(I was selected as well.)

You know you're an audiophile (er, narcissist) when you wish the Reputation on Head-Fi was cumulative. I don't make many posts that get a lot of Reputation, but tons of my posts get Reputation from one or more people. Then again, if these numbers were displayed on everyone's profiles, it would likely result in even more narcissism, so I can understand why it's not an active feature.

According to Winston Churchill, narcissism was the only proper form of love. But in some ways headphone collecting could be considered a form of narcissism. But regardless this hobby has been a godsend for me on so many levels.
P.s YKYAAW when you buy a amp for the sake of having the amp lol. smily_headphones1.gif

YKYAAW you spend the entire day reripping your CD collection into flac.

 

I had stuff in all sorts of formats- ALAC, WMA Lossless, WAV, etc, so I decided, since I have vacation, that I'd spend time fixing that up. I did about 33 albums today, which I believe is just over a third of what I have. Everything should be in flac by tomorrow night.

You could have just converted the existing lossless files to FLAC, if you needed FLAC for whatever reason. And tags can be edited digitally at any time. The only reason to re-rip CDs that you already have in lossless is if they were damaged and were incorrectly ripped.

 

Just curious, why do you want FLAC, anyway?

YKYAAW you know which headphones a portable case is for, just by looking at it.

I don't know why I didn't think of this, but I didn't; there wasn't much else I could do today, so I'm not that bothered by it. Also, the drive I used to rip them previously was about 10+ years old, and this one is brand new. I doubt it would affect it much, but it might still be good.

Might as well finish what you started then. XD lol

 

YKYAAW you can't think of anything to do but audiophile-related activities.

I really don't think we should make this a thread about taste in music.

 

(But her albums are produced quite well for mainstream music.)

Just a little light hearted humour. Besides the thread seems to be about everything else apart from the actual thread title.

Fair enough, but plenty of people like her music. I just don't think it's a good idea to put down a musical artist, because you put down the fans along with it. If you simply say you don't like it in subjective terms, instead of saying it's bad in objective terms, that's fine.
