    Best SQ for Portable Recorder

    I'm just going to paste my reply to another, very similar, topic.   I really like my Roland R-05 so far, though it is a little more pricey that the equivalent units from Zoom. I used it to take a live recording of a gig my girlfriend had recently using the built in binaural microphones and...

    looking for a good quality WAV Stereo recorder - SD card etc

    I really like my Roland R-05 so far, though it is a little more pricey that the equivalent units from Zoom.  I used it to take a live recording of a gig my girlfriend had recently using the built in binaural microphones and the quality really surprised me.  Recording at 24bit / 96khz is nice as...

    Portable tube headphone amplifier

    Mikhail from SinglePower also had a portable tube amp that he used to bring to audio shows, but I don't think they ever went in to production.

    Steampunk Millett Hybrid

    Very cool build.  I especially like the volume 'knob', though I think I would have pointed it up and put it on top.  :)

    My heart is in pieces :(

    Only read 2 pages of the thread, but you might want to consider putting it in an external hdd case and try hooking it up to a friends computer. Depending on what is wrong with it, you may be able to access your files that way. I've never heard of the freezer trick, but I would do a lot of...

    TORONTO MEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I've been teasing for a meet at my new place for a while... well, it is a different new place now, and though it doesn't have the stellar party room it is a lot bigger. I might host one, though I'll wait to see what pans out in this and other threads [as well as through PM] before I commit. I'd...

    Ah, a fresh thread on the K340s. That was a fun read. Glad to see that people are still enjoying them.

    IC: Ontario, Quebec, Eastern Canada and Northern US meet! In Montreal!

    Toronto is the center of the country, what are you guys going on about? I'm in depending on when it is. Won't be able to bring my source or amp unless someone else from the Toronto area feels like carting me around. My girlfriend, Rachel, might be interested in coming as well since she went...

    Portable Audio Lessons Learned - Upgrade Priorities

    I think that looking for perfection in a portable rig is a mistake ultimately. It is all about acceptable compromises. Your home rig is where you should be going 'over the top' in my opinion.

    Shave like a Man!

    I just use an electric shaver and it works just fine. That said, I can't even grow a full beard, so it might be completely different for those guys that are part bear.

    Scientific Proof of Cable Burn-in

    Never heard of Poe's Law, but I'm going to start using that. Lately whenever I say anything to my girlfriend with a straight face she seems to emphatically believe me even if it is completely ridiculous. I guess I'm either becoming quite the comedian or her sarcasm filter is broken. Most...
