    Current deal on Velodyne cans at newegg

    Great deal for a set of decent toss around cans. This is my second set because my daughter keeps "using" my first set. They are rather "bassy" and recessed mids/highs but for $10 shipped they are good for a set you dont have to worry about if...

    Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 vs budget amp and bookshelf speakers

    I vote for the Klipsch. The bass can't be matched by a 5.5 or 6.5 bookshelf woofer. I own a selection of bookshelf speakers and also the Klipsch (sadly the amp crapped out on me) the overall sound of the promedia rivals a larger set up in both sound quality and volume. The Klipsch 2.1 is a great...

    To revive an old thread. I just got a Star Wars 360 from my son and is my source for my computer room stereo. I am running the hdmi to a dell monitor and using the 3.5mm out of the monitor. I am quite impressed with cd output. I don't know what dacs the monitor has or if the output of the xbox...

    What has happend to this hobby?

    It would seem to me it has become a monster. A quick look at the for sale forums tells alot...amps for sale are way up there. Is it possible that the voyage to nirvana of sound cannot be bought? I think alot of the high dollar stuff is more snake oil than many think (or hope). I know so many...

    M6 PRO Impressions

    These are the first IEM's I have purchased in quite a while. I have listened to Shure 4's as my main IEM for a long time and wanted to update. I picked these up for $50 on Amazon and am very happy with them. I installed the bi-flanges right off the bat and they give me great isolation and...

    Anyone watching Master Chef Junior?

    I type this during the 4th or 5th show and I am sorry but I cannot believe this group of 8 to 12 year old kids have the "talents" they show. The show I am currently watching has the kids cooking in a restaurant kitchen serving a lunch. First off I am a former cook with quite a few years behind...

    This past week was the anniversary of his death. I myself am 54 yo and remember his music well....I have some favorites. His style was undoubtedly unique at the time and his fan base was vast. I must say however that going with "imitation is the greatest form of flattery" I can't recall anyone...

    Building first separates system, advice for a CD player with my setup.

    I can't believe digital and optical outputs are going away...anything to save a buck. I see your amp is stereo so it won't have HDMI in on it.....go with a DAC
