    Alternatives to (pointless) ipod touch?

    Alternatives to (pointless) ipod touch?

    What about Wifi? Only the Archos has that, and its a big ugly sunofabitch compared to the Touch.

    *** Let's share our 2007 SONG OF THE YEAR ***

    Cool post SONGsanmanwah... I've always enjoyed reading interpretations of highly metaphorical/poetic songs. The songs are few and far between, and interpretations of them are even less so. It'd be interesting to read your take on all the songs off the new Shins album... Past Shins albums had...

    Bands with Story Lines

    David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust The album presents the story of "Ziggy Stardust", a Martian who comes to earth to liberate humanity from banality. Ziggy Stardust is the definitive rock star, sexually promiscuous, wild in drug intake and with a message, ultimately, of peace and love; but he is...

    DVD vs CD on ipod

    You misunderstand in thinking that DVD audio tracks (DTS/DD) are higher quality than CD. This is not the case, most DVD audio tracks (with exception to PCM) is lower in quality than CD.

    John Mayer Concert (Not what you think)

    His first few albums were pure pop in order to gain popularity and support from record labels... Continuum was definitely an evolution in his sound to the music he TRULY likes to play. I wouldn't be surprised if his future albums become more and more bluesey as the record labels give him the...

    The White Stripes Icky Thump - New Stripes album impressions (Icky-Fi)

    With the Hoffman rip, I can stick it in my car and crank it up so the bass rivals any hip-hop/rap album... Imagine the look on people's faces when they first hear thumping from a distance, only to hear mariachi bands and bagpipes when they hear where the bass is coming from :-P

    which ipod docks have a real lineout?

    I believe the 'official' universal dock is a true line out, but is attenuated when the volume is lowered; so you are getting the true line out when the volume on the iPod is maxed when it is in the dock.

    "Icky Thump" Unofficial Impressions/Thoughts thread

    Yes, I concur with Pm@c, the grittiness should come from the instruments and recording (e.g. overdriven guitar amp, analog tape noise, etc.) rather than from mastering itself. If you were IN THE ROOM listening to them while they were recording the song, you'd hear distorted guitar coming from...

    Why RHCP mastered SO bad??

    in terms of CD mastering, BSSM and before was pretty good sounding. Californication, By the Way, and Stadium Arcadium are sh!te. The vinyl version of Stadium Arcadium mastered by Steve Hoffman, however, is amazing/
