    Pictures of your computer rigs! Post them here!

    Draygonn, a picture of that would be nice, if just for giggles. I think I mentioned already, running 3x Fractal Design 120mm PWM fans at 500RPM, they're rated for 15dBa at 800RPM if I'm not completely wrong and I've got to say they're quite silent! 212+ is quite silent with the stock fan under...

    Show us your Head-Fi station at it's current state. No old pictures please...

    To be honest there would be decent room for a bigger table in that corner, if the drawer wasn't on the way. I'm in a dorm and I've got limited space, but still plenty IMO

    Post pic(s) of your latest "significant" purchase(s)!!! v2.0

    That is curious, my friend had the B2030A in her home where she produced some trance music, and both her mixes and the usual stuff we both listen to sounded great, even though both speakers were only 15cm away from side and rear walls! But I can see your point, as my B3031A sound nice, they're...

    Or, sell the smaller Genelecs and take a step up the ladder and get the 8040 ;) I too found the 6010A to very much not need a subwoofer, at least in comparison to A2 and the such. They are really something, I've no idea how they make them so good, haha.

    So agreed. This site has a lot of positive qualities, I like the news and gear library and big crowd, but I don't really like what happened with NwAvGuy and how blind testing is a swearword and Sound Science is separated from the "real" forums, basically implying common sense and proof are...

    Audible examples of different audio phenomena and terms?

    The idea was to publish the short examples in a downloadable form for everyone so it could be used as a reference when searching for faults in playback equipment. I think it would benefit a lot of people, seen that many speaker and headphone reviews paint very expressionist scenery with the...

    Audible examples of different audio phenomena and terms?

    That's what I've been told and what I've read, and due to it's inability to be heard during situations where equipment is functional, I'd love to hear it, to give some perspective how little of it there is in ACTUAL usage scenarios. Cheers!

    Lian Li is great but at least in Finland, ridiculously expensive. I got a Fractal Design Define R3 for 90€, looks like a fridge just like Lian Li does for half the price :D Antec P180 Mini and P183 come to mind too. I value ease of installation, noise dampening, features and durability over...

    Audible examples of different audio phenomena and terms?

    it's cool, gives a very good sense of scale if you've got it audible only in massive jitter vs the miniscule differences between transports and DACs etc. I could try getting a good sample, was thinking of classical, a short passage of Canon in D Major or the such

    Audible examples of different audio phenomena and terms?

    Jitter is one thing I would like to hear in an example like this, too! I found this cool video with some things, like noise at several volumes among music material and bit crushing; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYTlN6wjcvQgives some scale to things, high quality samples in description

    Thanks for the confirmation! I understand calibrated measurement mics and ones that withstand very high SPL or are known to be very durable costing a lot but other than that I'm quite sure affordable mics will do just alright. And I'm lucky I will do just fine with the supplied Ableton Live...
