    Creative Zen Vision M charging

    I'm 95% sure that's just Creative covering their asses legally. Check it to see if it's hot after the first half hour, hour, two hours, etc. Make your own judgment.

    NIN: The Slip - Free High Resolution!!!!

    mwallace573, where are you seeing them? I might well be seeing them at Virgin Music Festival in Baltimore, MD, in August. Tickets are expensive but the lineup is ridiculous this year.

    Baby Orpheus anyone?

    Not relevant to the HE60 being sold, but... It's illegal for the seller to charge 3% more to people who choose to pay via PayPal. It would be the same as a store charging people more for using a credit card because the credit card company takes a piece of the transaction. There are definitely...

    Nine Inch Nails new album out

    I neeeeeed the site to start working so I can pay my ten dollars, get my 36 tracks, and sign up to get the hard copies in the mail. Radiohead and Trent Reznor are taking truly monumental steps with this kind of direct marketing. The music industry needs more of this and less of the big-money...

    Call of Duty 4 Discussions

    Gamertag: Vairul I'm still in the process of gaining rank (right now 32), so right now I'm playing with some pretty varied equipment so I can finish challenges and make rank faster. Usually, though, I play with an M4A1 w/ ACOG, silenced USP, stopping power, flash grenades, and something else...

    Pink noise works wonders for burning-in!

    So, is there a consensus on whether or not using pink noise decreases the overall burn-in time? It would make sense that using pink noise, which exercises the drivers at all frequencies simultaneously, would mean less time for the drivers to "settle", so to speak. I'm asking specifically...

    Headphones that gave you your first "eargasm"?

    There have been many, but... First time: MS-1 via 1/4" jack on a Sony 5-CD deck, playing November Rain, by Guns N' Roses. Another memorable one: MS-1 via iBasso D1, playing Stairway to Heaven, by Led Zeppelin. I'd finally borrowed a hard copy of the album from a friend, and it was my first...

    DAC Amp and Portability

    I have an iBasso D1, and it has been great the whole way. I needed something portable, but it also had to serve as an entry-level desktop amp. The D1 is perfect, as it can take USB, TOSLINK (optical), digital coaxial, and analog miniplug. The analog in jack has the best single feature I've found...

    CompUPlus Bungled My K-701s

    Since I've got to wait until Monday to talk to CompUPlus on the phone, I looked into their RMA policies online. I've gotta say they're less than satisfactory. Perhaps they will make a couple exceptions for something that was damaged when it arrived due to bad packing, but it looks like I'm going...

    CompUPlus Bungled My K-701s

    I made the decision about a week ago to upgrade my Alessandro MS-1s to AKG K-701s, with the goal of upgrading my iBasso D1 sometime in the next few months. I looked around for the lowest price at a seemingly reputable place, and found them for $250 shipped at I placed the order on...

    The Woes of iTunes!

    Is there an alternative to iTunes as a music player / library manager for Mac OS X? Specifically speaking, is there one out there that will transfer bit-perfect data via USB from sound file to the DAC in the iBasso D1? Correct me if I'm wrong here, but it appears to me that iTunes resamples...

    Cheap phones for bicycling?

    Thanks but no thanks, guys. I appreciate the few real suggestions that have been offered, but I really wasn't asking for a lecture about how to properly appreciate my ride or my music, or to start an argument of any kind. Just looking for headphones that don't create a lot of wind noise. Can we...

    Cheap phones for bicycling?

    I've been trying for the past few months to find some headphones that work well while riding my bike. I'm talking about a road bike, and the biggest problem is wind noise around the phones. I've tried the stock Apple earbuds and Creative earbuds, as well as some mid-quality IEMs that came with a...
