    CD rip vs Record rip

    I have done lots of both and ripping CDs is so much easier than records.  With CDs, you only need the proper software.  The equipment makes no difference.  Ripping records is a lot of work.  I do it when the CD version is poorly mastered or doesn't exist.  When done properly, a ripped record can...

    Toxic Cables Silver Poison custom IEM cable - wanna borrow it?

    I got the cable today.  I'll be testing it with 2 IEMs, the UE SuperFi 3 and the Etymotic ER4P with the Westone adapters.  That means it's going to be a while before the next person in line, ardgedee, gets it.
