I was wondering what manufacturers are out there making new tubes that are high quality. I know that most users here...

    The "Dude Flick" Movie Club

    I have decided to tweak the focus of this thread a little. Even before creating this thread, I toyed with the idea of creating this "dude flick movie club" as I call it, in which people can post their favorites and also discuss all things dude flick related. I know that Head-Fi already has a...

    Anybody here into analogue photography?

    I've never owned a real camera a day in my life, so forgive me if any of the terms used in this post are not correct. I've recently been thinking that trying photography might be fun. Rather than learning how to use a digital camera though, I think I'd like to learn how to use an analogue...

I'm trying to develop my rock library (it is very pathetic at the moment) and was wondering if anyone has recommendations for hard alternative rock music that is well produced.

    How should I transfer vinyl music to iTunes?

    Hello, I am thinking about possibly purchasing a turntable so that I can start buying records to transfer to iTunes as digital files because I prefer the warmth of vinyl over digital music. Also, I like the pops in vinyl; I think it adds character to the music. I don't think I would use the...

    Recommendations for other good forums?

    Hi all, I've lost a lot of the passion that I once had for audiophilism (though it isn't completely gone), but I still enjoy belonging to an online community such as this, and I still have an interest in the tech industry in general. So I was wondering if any of you had some good recommendations...

    The opposite of the placebo effect

    I just had a thought I've never had before. As you all know, some people believe in a thing called the placebo effect, which is (when the term is used outside of a medical context) when someone imagines grand differences in quality between product A and product B due to product B having a much...

    Beyer leather head cushion for SRH-840 and 99 Classics?

    Hi everyone, I am wondering if anybody has replaced the headbands of either the Shure SRH-840s or the Meze 99 Classics with this Beyerdynamic leather head cushion. The headband for the Meze 99 Classics looks to be too wide for this product, but I am hopeful that somebody has tried it with the...

    Do you think that the movie "Krampus" will be any good?

    I'm not normally a fan of the contemporary horror flick, but I think that it is an interesting idea for a horror movie and it could be good, if done correctly. For those who don't know, the being known as 'Krampus' is a 'horned, anthropomorphic figure who punishes children during the Christmas...

    Does anybody have any recommendations for a binaural recording of thunder and rain?

    Does anybody have any recommendations for a binaural recording of thunder and rain? I want it to actually sound binaural, unlike the "Binaural+" albums by Chesky Records. I want it to sound like this.

    Hello, I was just wondering how I would connect a JDS Labs cMoyBB to my 13-inch Macbook Pro and my Xbox 360 in such a way that I would be bypassing the internal amplifiers in those electronics so that I wouldn't be amplifying an already amplified signal. Keep in mind that the amplifier would be...
