    Darkvoice just released 332

    Bought K171 today: First impressions

    No difference.

    Well at the moment I'm satisfied with FF, and I think quite soon we will have Firefox 3 and I heard that it will be the fastest (or one of the fastest) browser available. I've tried the beta but then I couldn't get flash to work so I just use the stable version now.

    So far I like Ubuntu very much. When installing compiz fusion I thought that I'm going to have a problem with dependencies or something like it happen sometimes in fedora but all the packages were installed perfectly. The only problem I had so far was that I had no sound from the flash player...

    Wow great wallpaper and nice desktop overall. For my desktop I use Compiz-Fusion and Avant Window Navigator and I use this theme.

    K701 VS. HD650 VS. Beyerdynamic DT990 - I tested them today

    I love skiing too (like most Austrians) but I don't have a large collection or anything. This would be overkill for me as I don't have time to go skiing that often. This year I tried out my uncles old Kästle 2.07 m long racing skis. Wow! What a difference! Normally I use much shorter Atomic...

    I like bass but I don't like too much bass because with headphones I won't "feel" the bass anyway so I think that's what speakers and subwoofers are for. It's true that most people that don't know anything about audio or what real music sounds like prefer a sound with big bass. I think this is...

    The Plinius CD-101 has landed - and is staying

    Great CD player Asr, looks great and it seems like you're really enjoying it! I really like that metal faceplate with the round corners. Very cool design. Don't like the name though .. I had to translate too much of Plinius' stuff lately in latin class at school

    K701 seen on American Express commercial

    That's a cool commercial, I would like to see it on TV here in Austria but I guess our TV channels are just too lame for that

    Great keyboardist I found on youtube...

    Normally I prefer real guitar but this guy is really good (he's a bit strange though) and that's a great song. I got to look at the other videos too.

    Looking for a nice upgrade from the AKG K26P

    You're right the K171 aren't really efficient but I don't think that there is such a thing as "real impedance", they have 55 Ω (like all the other studio AKGs too) and that's it. The K240 are open and if I'm right you're looking for closed cans so maybe the K271, the closed version of that...

    Looking for a nice upgrade from the AKG K26P

    About the K518: I think that for the price, these headphones are actually sound quite good but I can't agree with marvelusjd about the isolation. For example IEMs or other closed phones (in my case it's the K171) have better isolation because the K518 actually has some pretty thin earpads that...

    K701 + DV 332 tubes?

    Quote: Originally Posted by Capunk Actually it's quite rare (beside above poster) to find K701 user to use DV332 to drive it, because DV332 much more suitable to HD650 than K701. 336i preferable to be paired with K701 because the amp produce more "tubey" sounding, and K701 will love it...

    K701 + DV 332 tubes?

    Have you had a look at this thread? Many tubes for the DV332 are discussed and compared there. Most of the tubes are quite cheap anyway so if money isn't your problem you could even get more than one type of tubes. I think for the power tubes there are only 2 possibilities: the Svetlana and...

    Eyeball Implants--check this out!

    This is gross. I don't like the idea of having something implanted into my eyeball. I think you should be happy that you're not blind and not mess around with your eyes when it's not necessary. @ Kirosia: I really hope that you were kidding...necrophilia is even worse than eyeball implants
