I'm using a Mac Book with Amara playback, and I have a Scott Nixon USB Tubedac D/A converter. I'll bring that too. My Amara has crashed I'm afraid. I'm not too computer literate, so I hope to have that fixed well before then. As I've been known to say----my favorite computer tool is a .357 magnum........
I know what you mean there - I have had an awful time with my Mac running Windows - yesterday, I finally replaced the RAM and exchanged the Hard Drive with a SSD - then I loaded all the software from scratch. I didn't think I could do that myself, but it went well. Reinforced to me how much I like the Apple software, and how much I don't like the Microsoft software.
Out of curiosity, I've talked to RastaDolphin but does anyone know any audio shops in the general Winston area or Greensboro? I know Drew has a great shop in Cary, but that's a little far away for a student without a car.
Also, does anyone know any electronics store that sells DIY basics like heat shrinks and plugs/jacks in the Winston area too?
A fella named Randy has a Car Stereo Install shop behind Custom Home Hi Fi (across the street from through way shopping center - next to entrance of Business 40). He is a good guy, and he would be able to hook you up with a lot of those kinds of items.
I'm in the Raleigh area, and being generous I think I've been to Winston once before. If I remember correctly we sat in a car at Hanes mall for about 10-15 minutes...reason not remembered at this point. What this means is, sadly, I know nothing out that way really. The Radio Shacks around here sometimes have some of that stuff, have you tried there?
I heard that. I was beginning to wonder myself :) should be fun
I saw him play not long ago when he came to Raleigh. He is fantastic, and really at ease on stage. Definitely one I'd have lunch with in one of those hypothetical questions of who to have lunch with...not the ONLY one, but up there :)
That is great to hear - will be my first symphony experience like this. I saw on HD Tracks the Joshua Bell playing / conducting St. Martin in the Fields - Beethoven - 4&7 - interesting comparison - violinist also conducting - likely to download that one.
