    Static, buzzing from speakers. Onboard audio ALC 1150. Please help.

    Hello. I'll try to keep this short and simple as possible. Built a new PC about eight months ago. Bought an older (ancient) Altec Lansing 5.1 speaker system to use with the new build with it's onboard audio (Altec 1150) when I wasn't using my HD598s. Occasionally heard static from the speakers...

    Zune 2.5 Update

    Beautiful. I installed the update on my back-up machine, and I'm stuck in a never ending "You must restart your machine" dialog everytime I try and start the software. Is anyone else experiencing this? (and ofcourse, I have restarted my machine).

    Quick Sony NWZ-A728 8gb Review

    Great review, very informative, I like how you covered the bundled buds, one of only a handfull of freebees they throw you that are actually worth a review of their own. Oh yes, and I'm glad you are enjoying the FX-55s.

    making the Cowon Q5W play videos fine on youtube.

    You'd think a device that can handle 720P media no sweat would be able to eat YouTube videos for breakfast, but I guess that's just not the case. Unlike with a PC, I dont think there is very much in the way of optimization you can do with Q5W (or PMPs in general, for that matter). Best advice I...

    So you've got a worn out amplifier, and your going to send it in for repair. No doubt, you are going to get a refurb, but guess what...its going to be just like brand-spanking new and you'll be up and running again in no time. Here's hoping to a successful surgery and a speedy recovery!

    "Hear" the compression

    You all are blissfully uninformed!! There is no difference between...say iBuds and the Ultimate Ear 11 series! Its alllll psychological! They both sound exactly the same, but since you spent 1.1K on one of the two, it _HAS_ to sound better, or so you convince yourself. With the power of positive...

    please help, looking for new mp3

    With any of those four you listed, you simply cannot go wrong, they are all reputed, solid performers in the sound quality category. Pick based upon what you want more out of your mp3 player, a diminutive size (Clip), a large screen (a728), or something in the middle (Fuze and a816).

    sq of rockboxed 4g ipod photo vs. sansa e200 rockboxed

    I have heard people refer to the fourth generation iPod as the best sounding iPod in the line, and in contrast, the first revision e200s are known to have sub-par sound quality, even Rockbox can't go so far as to completely fix it's down-to-the-roost flaw. I can say the info for the e200 from...
