    State of HeadRoom Report

    I've been away from Head-Fi for quite some time and came back before buying a new Bithead for a buddy of mine (I've had one for years and been quite happy with it). I thought I'd see what people had to say about the current rev and see if there was any Head-Fi discount floating around . Of...

    Squeezebox 2 group buy?

    I think it has a better DAC and looks better; but, I think I would have been happy with a 2. I like it because it streams FLAC. I've been trying it out in software and (except for an underpowered server) it is running really well.

    Squeezebox 2 group buy?

    OK -- I'm an idiot. I just realized I replied to a post from a year ago . . . sorry about that. So, does anyone know what the current quantity discount is on the Squeezebox 3?

    Squeezebox 2 group buy?

    I'm just about to buy two of these (one for a buddy and me). Right now they have a $100 if you buy 2. That is better than the discount they are offering in larger quantities.

    ACC..... proprietary fun

    ACC..... proprietary fun

    Re-ripping is a total pain, I agree. That is why I went with FLAC so I can just convert the music to whatever format I want in the future without having to re-rip.

    I just realised... how do you delete recordings on the iHP?

    Quote: Originally posted by AGR This is all too hilarious! Big Deal!!! I consider it a safety feature. Who really cares, and what is the big effect of not being able to delete unless your connected?! It is all too simple to make such a fuss about. You connect up your USB, go to the...

    I just realised... how do you delete recordings on the iHP?

    Quote: Originally posted by bangraman I meant while you're recording. Back when I researched these things I think I remember that there is no way to delete anything from the iHP itself. You have to go to a computer to delete. Not too much of a limitation unless you are...

    Quote: Originally posted by Synch Remember, things will sound different for numerous reasons, but a big one is that if you like the sound your speakers make at high volume (i.e. on the verge of breaking up) you will feel that something is missing. This is a place where a distortion...

    HeadRoom AirHead vs HeadRoom Total AirHead?

    Invention/Innovation idea: How to proceed?

    Quote: Originally posted by Music Fanatic If it is not obvious to one of ordinary skill in the art, then yes, it is protectable. Yes, but depending on what we're talking about, it might be protected under trademark law if it is brand-related, not under patent law. I do agree...

    Invention/Innovation idea: How to proceed?

    Yeah -- if you are going to sell your idea to someone else (or license it to them), you are definitly going to want to protect your invention first. That means patent it. I suggest you check out and get their patent book (or see a lawyer). And don't tell anyone what it is...

    Quote: Originally posted by kelesh So, if the RME did not satisfy my simple gaming/movie needs, the recommended way of handling it seems like splitting the signal that comes out of each card, and outputting this signal to both headphones and speakers via more splitters? (my headphone amp...

    Revo or Audiophile?

    Revo or Audiophile?

    Quote: Originally posted by Jigglybootch One question, though. I've seen the firewire version Audiophile in recent days, and I was wondering if there's any real difference between them other than the interface that they use to connect to the PC. If you do choose to go with the...

    Who wants a cassette deck in their PC?

    I don't know which is funnier: the product itself or the fact that for $234 you get a "free passport between analog and digital sound". There are about 3 times I can remember when I wanted to copy a tape to my computer. I just dragged a tape deck (I have one of the cheaper Naks) over to the...
