    Linux for sound?

    Quote: Originally Posted by Torr Actually, I did the exact opposite. I encouraged him to download the live cd and give it a shot. We can agree on that point, at least. And thanks UNHchabo for the additional blu-ray info. I don't really use that format so I am not familiar...

    HD600 and Meier Corda Headsix ?

    I agree with you about the comfort - I couldn't stand the vise-grip and heat of the HD600s, especially in the summer. I think Grados are actually a lot more comfortable. I also agree with HFA on keeping both if you can. They're really two completely opposite cans, and you might find a...

    Linux for sound?

    Quote: Originally Posted by Torr I did not imply such a thing. You chose to read it that way. I have no interest in laying blame since that ultimately has no bearing on the decision. The fact is these issues exist and why they exist is irrelevant to this discussion. Right, but...

    HD600 and Meier Corda Headsix ?

    Quote: Originally Posted by lazure Ok, just received the SR-225i and I absolutely can see what the fuss is about. I didn't quite know what people meant when they talked about "excitement", "immediacy" and "being up there with the band". Wow. I'll pick a few choice songs to compare these...

    Linux for sound?

    Quote: Originally Posted by Torr I never claimed the blame lies with Linux. I only claimed that most people are (rightfully) unwilling to put up with such hassles and thus a Linux desktop is not right for them. You stated that there were "few reasons" to use linux as a desktop...

    Linux for sound?

    Quote: Originally Posted by Torr A Linux user who bought an X-fi when it was first released would have had to wait almost 5 years before being able to use it. So the manufacturer sucks, and doesn't care enough about its users to provide drivers. What does that have to do with...

    FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Nuforce uDAC USB DAC AMP with line out and S/PDIF out

    Quote: Originally Posted by donunus it wasnt me that talked about them and the hd650s. Also I really dont find them to have recessed mids and fizzy highs. They are actually more tubelike than my other past dacs. They are slightly soft sounding if anything. You really must have gotten a...

    Quote: Originally Posted by donunus waahahaha userlander da man. Seriously I would have thought the dt880s would be nice with the uDac unless a little extra bass hurts. Nevermind that now though because it seems to have turned to a hotaudio thread and has given the man a headache...

    Linux for sound?

    Quote: Originally Posted by Torr I don't know what you mean by "full effects", but you shouldn't expect to have more than just standard audio functionality. X-fi compatibility has only existed on linux for less than a year (in a production version). Sound quality should be unaffected...

    Linux for sound?

    Yes, windows is so mature it still has nested application menus and desktop icons, two of the worst user interface designs ever invented. Linux can handle desktop audio fine. Plenty of players exist, from full-blown iTunes-like apps to minimal server/cli apps, like mpd+client, and...
