    Quality EQ apps for ipod/iphone/ipad

    The update works great, but I find the new UI unintuitive and quite frankly in need of a complete redesign to make the various disjointed looking elements more uniform. I don't understand why it was necessary to have the music pause when you tap on the cover art?

    Quality EQ apps for ipod/iphone/ipad

    Could anyone comment on whether Equalizer (audioforge's app) supports retina display resolution? The screenshots in the itunes appstore appear to be low-res (i.e. visible pixels in the text used in within the app).   Thanks.

    Recommendation for Indian music

    OK. I gave you a couple Indian Classical suggestions (other artistes of note: Kishori Amonkar, Amjad Al Khan, Zakir Hussain). A few recommendations in other genres: MIDIval PunditZ (Electronica / Indian flavored Asian Massive sounds) Raghu Dixit Project (Earthy, folksy Indian flavored...

    Recommendation for Indian music

    This is like asking a recommendation for "American music" The styles of music originating from the subcontinent are so incredibly diverse, ranging from the sublime (Hindustani classical) to the kitschy (bad Bollywood remixes). Anyway a good place to start is with Shiv Kumar Sharma...

    Press Release from Microsoft on Zune Update 9/16

    There's been no word on EQ. In other words, not this time, it appears. More new features have been revealed on this site.

    iPod 7G: 120gb only

    Interesting, because Microsoft has launched the 120 GB Zune and has discontinued the 80 as well. Can't understand the logic.

    Shure e3c for $100. Good deal?

    I personally wouldn't recommend the Shure E3 for the kind of music you listen to. I used to own a pair, before I moved onto the E4 and later Westone UM2, and you will find the bass quite lacking. For $100 you could do a lot better. In fact, if IEMs are not a must, I'd recommend the inexpensive...

    Looking for a music player

    I have an old iAudio U3, and it is surprisingly good in the recording department. I use it weekly, and the mic, though tiny, has impressive range and sensitivity. The iAudio 7 should perform quite similarly, or better, since it's the next generation after the U3. I think as long as you sit up...

    UPDATED with POLL: BLACK or CLEAR Westone UM2 Which one? HMMMMMM??

    The blacks don't have a glossy finish like the Shure SE530s do - it's a cheapish looking dull matte black plastic. Which is why I got the clear UM2s. But either way, the ergonomics of the UM2s are unmatched or a universal fit IEM. Edit: Here is a picture of the black UM2s.

    Go-VIBE Petite with DAC: too little power?

    Yeah, considering that the default factory gain is 9 (high), and the Denons are low impedance, I doubt you should have trouble driving them. Did you check the foobar volume as suggested?

    Portable amp for UM2

    I use the UM2 + Petite combo. Sounds sweet, and an added bonus is that you also get a USB DAC, for under $200. In any case, I think benefits of amping the headphone out will be marginal. With my Zune, I don't bother using an amp for this reason. Keeps things minimalistic.

    Portable Lossless - Support for WMA Lossless

    I use a Zune 80, and transcoded all my FLAC files to WMA lossless to use on the player. The Zune doesn't have a true line-out, so amping it is kinda silly, but IMO the headphone out is plenty good. I prefer keeping my portable rig minimalist: Zune 80 -> Westone UM2 / KSC35.

    In-ear monitors for electric bass?

    Westone UM2s because the bass response is warm yet tight, and the build quality (Made in USA!) and comfort is great. Love the cable, too. All at a price which won't break the bank.
