    Question About Album Art

    The Rockbox firmware supports this, it works on an awful lot of MP3 players; even iPods'!

    Quote: Save up for an external hard drive. Everyone should have one for a backup. I couldn't agree with you more! A friend of mine just lost all his music whilst upgrading to Windows Vista, he had no backups; I can recommend that! But for now, using the laptop cd-r will do nicely...

    Computer setup - which soundcard?

    Quote: What lineout are you talking about? I'll be using the optical out for the DAC-AH. Ah right, sorry about that! If an optical output is the case, it's got to be the AV710 for sure; both the Juli@ and AV710 have a bit-perfect optical output! They will sound exactly the same...

    the END of internet Radio ???

    This is indeed dreary news, me and a lot of people i know have discovered a lot of new music using and Pandora... this has lead to me buying a lot of new CD's! And I'm sure that's not just me, so why would they do such a thing; it's rather bad for the artists!

    Computer setup - which soundcard?

    I don't know all that much about the Juli@ but I own a Chaintech AV710, have used it in combination with a Pocket Amp 2 and a pair of MS2i's and UM2's; it sounds great! The line-out of the AV710 is really clean and not prone to interference and best of all... it's very, very cheap!

    Donnie Darko.

    That bunny, Frank, is without doubt the most scary thing I ever saw! But the movie was great, rather confusing also; especially if you are so scared of the scenes with the bunny you have to look away :P I seriously missed a good part of it...

    FedEx = BS

    Quote: Wow, a lot of people doesn't like DHL, have you ever had an incident with them? I have, more then one actually! The worst one would be this: An MiniDisk player was to be delivered to my home, but the DHL employee walked around my house (without calling at the front door!)...

    Grado Advice Needed!

    I'd advice you to get the 325i's and stick with them; once you're into the whole Grado sound thing, it will be where you'll end up eventually... Also, the 325i's, in my opinion, really do have the best sound quality/price ratio of all the Grado 'phones on the market!

    What, does this only happen to me? Im really pissed off.

    Quote: don't put your device in your pockets... Quite right, even keeping them in your backpack is better than using your pockets; all the moving about wreaks havoc on the wires/cords... btw. I does not only happen to you, I lost my pair of UM2's the same way

    I sold my UM2's to James, it's been a great transaction; PayPal-ed me the money quickly and always was quick to reply to my PM's. Save to say, James is a trustworthy guy and a pleasure to deal with...
