    How has your musical taste changes as you grow older?

    There is the the theory that kids like what drives their Dad nuts. I remember Little Richard use to drive my Dad crazy. I may have played it more, for that reason......

    Sony D-NE20 my personal REVIEW

    I have to agree with this review. I have the DNE920. I chose the 920 because I liked the option of no remote needed unless you want it. I've had it about a week. Now the sound. It's the default settings. Either the bass boost and/or the equalizer has to be set for your preferences. Once that...

    Amped Portapro for home use?

    I like my Portapro's for portability and they do fine without amplification, but, they're not comfortable enough to me for home use. I can't imagine a source that couldn't power them.

    A godly PCDP?

    I would think the new Panny Shockwaves or Sony Sports would do a pretty good job. They seem to target the active crowd. I've even heard of folks dropping these players and not skipping. Some are even water resistant.

    EQ usage. Yes or No?

    Quote: Originally Posted by bigshot The proper way to EQ is subtractively... you pull back on the frequencies that are masking the weaker ones. This adds very little noise to the signal. So, I would say that the reason that EQ gets bad press is because most people don't know the first...

    EQ usage. Yes or No?

    I wouldn't even consider a home stereo, DAP, DCDP, or any other quality audio setup without a good equalizer. Cans also benefit. No Headphone or speaker system can adjust for the weaknesses ( in the listeners judgement ) of a given sound track. There are many days when I prefer one sound...

    Have DAP still need DCDP

    Although I have a great 2gb Iaudio 5, I still have a need for a good CD player. I'd like a High end model with great sound. Been looking at the Aiwa XPSN70 or Sony DNF600. Why? 1) Wife doesn't want to fool with mp3/ogg conversion techie stuff 2) Books on cd have to be converted, loaded...

    HD595 Owners

    I seem to use the equalizer more that most folks on this forum. It's all in how the recording was mixed when produced. Each sound engineer is different and produces his music differently. Because of this, I use the equalizer to bring out what I prefer. Since most of us agree the HD595 is...
