    Best recorded albums of all time?

    I'm a big fan of all his singing and I like all of the albums but I listen to 'Till the Sun Turns Black' most. As a recording/producing achievement, I think 'Ouroboros' is pretty great, though. It's obvious Pink Floyd inspiration extended beyond the musical composition, imo.

    Superfi5 Pros Reshell

    I also think the 5Pros were the best IEMs that I tried. I haven't tried a new pair sinse the Triple.Fi came out, but they didn't do it for me either. I tried the Shure e2, e3, e4, e5, SE215. I had and loved the Etymotic ER4s, but still for most music the Super.fis were easier to listen...

    I checked on this before i ordered. The output format is selectable and does include PCM stream. I will update in a few days when the unit comes in on how/if everything works out.

    Thanks for the recommendation. Add long as it works i can't see how it could be a bad deal @ $25.

    Journey From Headphone to Vintage Audio

    Head-Fi really opened up Audio as a hobby to me. I started off here after I bought a Rio Karma and was looking into new headphones, as many people do. For a long time I was content with my nice IEMs and a portable music player. Then I got the itch to build a "PC as Source" setup with a dedicated...

    SQ of Old Clip v New Clip+

    I went from a Fuze to a Clip+. I think the sound is a little bit different. A friend recently gave me some Etymotic ER4Ps and I was a little suprised when I tried them out with the Clip+ and found that the player was, to my ears, significantly darker sounding than the Fuze. I haven't ABed them...

    What is the best Led Zeppelin album?

    Little revival here. I'm surprised that no-one has spoke up in defense of 'Houses' even though it received 8 votes. It's my favorite followed closely by Physical Graffiti, Presence, and IV, and III, and II, and I, and In Through The Out Door, and well CODA I guess too.

    List your ten favorite albums from the past 20 years

    The most famous / iconic Cover Art Ever?

    The Pink Floydism is really bothering me. You put this poll on any other forum and I think Abbey Road would run away with it.

    Feelings on Red Hot Chili Peppers, as a band, musicians, and musical direction? ...

    I don't know about the world, but the Chili Peppers changed my musical horizons when I was first discovering music that wasn't what my parents listened to. I like it all. I like the old and the new. Even though I don't really listen to them much anymore, I won't turn off any of their songs.

    Dorm Stereo System Help

    For $200 I would find a sweet vintage (70's) integrated amp or stereo receiver. I just picked up a mint Realistic STA-78 from a Goodwill shop that set me back $40 (that's paying a bit much, actually) and CRUSHES any cheap modern A/V receiver. This is just a mid-fi unit from the late seventies...
