    How do I rip the tunes from a DVD Video?

    Actually, I lied. I have many bootlegs and many tunes from archive.org. I know it's not so much the quality, but the performance. Yes, I am now using a windows7 platform; tweaked for music. My normal listening is through Foobar, my library manager is MediaMonkey. For whatever reason, I rarely...

    How do I rip the tunes from a DVD Video?

    I did a search, and although many posts came up, I couldn't find an answer. I have ripped DVD-A, SACD, etc., but I cant figure out how to get the songs off of James Blunt Rhapsody Originals Live Performances 350460-2. Can anyone help me? Justin   P.S. I usually use EAC

    AMB Gamma-2 repair needed

    Thank you Mister-X for the offer. Fortunately, one of my friends woks at a place where they make airplane parts, and his boss soldered it for me. Thanks again for your help.

    One Man's Opinion - Bifrost Multibit (long read)

    I can’t remember ever writing a review here, but I just got a Schiit Bifrost Multibit DAC and I love it.  Everything I’m about to say is my personal opinion, so as they say: YMMV.  A little about my background so you can evaluate how much weight to give my opinions.   When I was in college, I...

    6SN7 Tube Addicts

    This tube has a date code of 852, which I figured meant the end of 1948 or 1958. I can find no tube resembling this that Sylvania made in 1958, so maybe this is from 1948?

    6SN7 Tube Addicts

    . It appears that an old 3 cell car battery produced about 6.3V (2.1V X 3) and I have found an old tube used in Ford Motor Co. radios that needed 6.3V for the heater. It’s almost totally chromed. Anyone recognize this?     Hint: it’s from our friends at 312. The funny thing is that...

    Musical Fidelity V-LINK USB SPDIF

    Quote:   The V-Link is used to convert USB to S/PDIF. It changes the flow control from the computer controlling the flow (possibly with lotsa jitter) to the V-Link controlling it asynchronously (hopefully with much less jitter). It also has a secondary benefit for those with dacs that...

    Foobar vs Mediamonkey 4 Wasapi comparison

    @maud I have and use foobar. It's a great player. I was merely quoting the foobar people to help the new Head-Fiers. I don't think it's fair to lead them to believe that they're going to hear big radical differences. Look at the first word of foobar's answer. If you hear a difference, well...

    Foobar vs Mediamonkey 4 Wasapi comparison

    Here is a quote from the official Foobar2000 website:   Does Foobar2000 sound better than other players? No. Most of “sound quality differences” people “hear” are placebo effect.............. .

    Why Kanye West = God?

    These are quick notes/impressions from a first listen by someone who has never listened to this performer (or rap in general). I won’t comment on the quality of the recording. My software shows an average replaygain of about negative 10!  By track#:   1)                  Good until talking...

    Why Kanye West = God?

    Better yet. I have a couple of errands to run. I'll pick up the CD, bring it home and listen, and give my humble opinion.

    Musical Fidelity V-LINK USB SPDIF

    I have discovered some oddities lately. I was re-arranging my ‘office’ at home and moved my gear. Now it’s closer to my desktop computer than where my laptop sits so I plugged it into the desktop for the heck of it. It got better. My initial belief is that the usb ports on my laptop are...

    Do tubes loose volume with age? When I change tubes, I notice sometimes I have to adjust the volume knob to get the same volume level (no spl meter, just same sounding). This occurs even between the same brand and type
