    How many people use stereo/surround receivers with headphones?

    I just got an Onkyo S3400 5.1 surround sound system.  I didn't even think about using it for my headphones for over a month, and it blew me away when I did.  Sooooo much better than my Headroom Bithead (yeah, I know, not hard to do).  But it definitely made me believe in night and day...

    WTB: Cheap replacement stylus for 681EEE Cartridge.

        My amp is 95% finished!  I'm going go through, and redo some of the grounding eventually and maybe give it a new case.  Using the box the parts from mouser came in.  But for now, it's good.     I kept hearing this weird buzz every once in a while, and it was driving me insane.  I...
