    What computer speakers to get?

    If you are using purely class D amplification then yes, Klipsch speakers can sound harsh at high volume - but that is largely an inherent issue with class D amplifiers. I have found [ I own a pair of Klipsch RP160Ms] tube amps and class A amps and A/B amplifiers sound great with them even at...

    Best PC Media software for music

    I use Winamp V5.5 - some prefer v2.95 because of the lower footprint. Foobar is a good choice. I use winamp because it supports Internet radio streaming right out of the box...er, usb drive..whatever.

    Creative Sound Blaster X7 - Detailed Review & Impressions

    I have been listening to the Oriveti New primacy Hybird IEMs - I got them on sale. They pair very well with the X7, soundstage is a bit narrower than what i'm used to with my Klipsch speakers and bass can get a bit boomy with SBX on*. Vocals are generally oustanding. The only thing lacking with...

    Creative Sound Blaster X7 - Detailed Review & Impressions

    I was rifling through my PC parts cupboard - sorting out parts I have held on to over many upgrades in the hopes I will use them again... and I came across this circa 2009 Azuntech soundcard that I had given to me, happened to have these on it The NE5532P dual op-amp, Considering the...

    Creative Sound Blaster X7 - Detailed Review & Impressions

    Has anyone ever actually pulled an X7 apart? - i'm curious about exactly how they have set up cooling for the components. Here in OZ temps of over 40 degrees are not uncommon during the summer months. I recall reading somewhere that the X7 is passively cooled, I hope they didn't just slap a few...

    Carpets Matter.

    Interesting, however I prefer my sound un-coloured by unnecessary resonance. When I play loud passages on the flute [circa 110dB] I can make crystal glassware resonate, it is incredibly annoying.

    What computer speakers to get?

    I wasn't impressed by Kef's sub 2K 2 way speakers either - having a tweeter in a coaxial arrangement like that looks like a bad idea, you would have major issues with diffraction especially with the woofer fapping about. If you have a subwoofer they would be passable at high volumes with a...

    Best gaming mice

    I used to have a Logitech G9X - I found that mouse to feel too flat for a palm grip...plus the original shell had a nasty habit of collecting gunk from your hands. The smooth mouse shell changed the shape in a way that made it unpleasant to use, plus the smooth shell had absolutely no grip to it...

    Best gaming mice

    I recently bought a second R.A.T 7 because the one I had been using was still operational - but looked a bit worse for wear after 6 years of (ab)use. I was interesting to note the new one has some minor cosmetic changes from the original design. And it also appears the company that makes these...

    Neat Bumblebee USB Microphone - one of the few 96Khz 24Bit Capable microphones under $300AUD out there. Very sturdy, the boom extends and holds position very well and the base is solid METAL and keeps the whole set -up anchored. This mic is Mono recording only, but for instrumental or voice over wor
