    Boston meet?

    I'll try to be there too! I should be able to bring my Meridian 506 CD player and Melos SHA-1 amp. As for headphones, I don't really have a good pair to match with them right now, but I can bring my Beyer 250-250s.

    Berlin headfi/HIFI-FORUM meet on Sept. 11th: post your impressions and pictures here

    Thanks Sepinho and m00hk00h for organizing such a successful event!  We didn't have a huge crowd, but that made it more intimate and I personally thought it was better this way.  And thanks to Matthias and Oliver of Sennheiser for coming.  If you're reading this, it was great to meet both of...

    Joint European Head-Fi/ Meet in Berlin, Sept. 11th. It's on!

    Also, I will be able to bring my gently beat-up Ultrasone HFI-650 as well as my Beyerdynamic DT250-250.

    Joint European Head-Fi/ Meet in Berlin, Sept. 11th. It's on!

    Unfortunately, my car is now full on the way to Berlin... yipes, there's a lot of people on Mitfahrzentrale who are looking short term!  I have one place free on the way back, though, but that will probably get filled pretty soon too.  I'd be leaving at 3pm on Sunday.

    Joint European Head-Fi/ Meet in Berlin, Sept. 11th. It's on!

    Though I already told you, just so it's here, I'll be getting in after 5, and hopefully before 6.  I hope to be able to hit a decent Getränkemarkt on the way to pick up a wonderful Badisch surprise.  Sepinho, it's a secret, so no telling! :)

    European meetup - post your ideas here

    Well, I actually live over 3 hours away by train. That's why I couldn't commit so very much time. If we were to have a meet in Freiburg (where I live), I could do more. But Freiburg is not easily accessible by plane, so I would not recommend it.

    European meetup - post your ideas here

    Sorry, haven't read through everything but would certainly recommend Frankfurt or Düsseldorf over Berlin and Hamburg for Germany. Both are more-easily accessible (by trains, planes, and automobiles) and should be better ausgestattet for conventions, if you'll pardon my German. Also, Hamburg...

    how many of you guys cook???

    Today, I made a delicious tomato sauce for my dinner of Matzah pizza (chag sameach, everyone!). Tomato puree with a bunch of spices -- pepper, salt, basil, oregano, thyme, paprika, cayenne pepper. But the most important ingredient is spicy Turkish ajvar. Topped with some Emmentaler cheese...

    How sensitive are the er4s?

    The ER-4S is the one headphone I've kept for 8 years. I can confirm that it is as insensitive as many full-size headphones whether you mean in its need for amplification or to your sensibilities regarding how well you would have liked your favorite artists to have recorded their music. On the...

    Recommend me music: classical / orchestral

    Also, just a slightly superfluous (I hope) clarification: when I say "mediocre," this is, of course, from my perspective. I don't think there's anything wrong with listening to Holst or Elgar's music. Hell, you can listen to Philip Glass for all I care. But I think it's worth listening to the...

    Recommend me music: classical / orchestral

    I still don't get why such mediocre composers like Holst and Elgar always get recommended right away to someone interested in learning about "classical" music. These are second- and third-string guys. Start with the names that you do know -- and with good reason. Mozart, Beethoven, Bach. They...

    Radiohead vs. Coldplay

    I know you didn't want any bashing, but have you ever listened to Coldplay's lyrics? They can't write them, so they just put words down to sing something along with their pleasant music. And the music still doesn't compare to Radiohead. And that's from someone who basically only listens to...

    Bluetooth Mouse?

    So, I've gotten my Sony Vaio bluetooth mouse and have been using it for the last few days. It pairs up quite easily with my Vaio. It looks nice, though it's not exactly a piece of art as some yahoos on Amazon claimed. Unfortunately, it's not the most comfortable of mice. It's comfortable and...

    Bluetooth Mouse?

    I wanted to get one too for my new Vaio. I ended up getting the Sony Vaio one because... it looks cool. It was a little expensive, though, at $60 from Amazon. I should have it next week, if you haven't bought one by then, I'll let you know if it's any good!
