    Meier Corda Move & Lunchbox II comparisons?

    Hello, Has anyone here had the chance to compare the Meier Corda Move with the Lunchbox II? This might be a bit of apples vs. oranges (tubes vs solid state, home vs portable) but they are both in the same price range. I'm looking for something to feed Sennheiser HD 580's from an EMU 0404 USB...

    Elliot Smith - From A Basement On The Hill

    Elliott Smith is one of my favorite artists. He had an angelic voice and a knack for writing great hooks. From a Basement on a Hill is very good, but not as good as XO or Either/Or IMO. It's a shame what happened to him.

    Budget Specker Cable under $50?

    You would need a wire cutter/stripper and a crimping tool. There are tools that do both in one. The crimping tool part usually has a oval shaped cutout marked for a specific guage range. You strip the wire, put the wire through the spade and then put the bottom part of the spade in the oval part...

    remake of Heaven?

    There's a techno version of that song by DJ Sammy and Yanou where the singer is female. Maybe that's what you're looking for. edit: It's probably the candlelight remix of that song.

    Vintage gear reviews?

    The thing about vintage gear is that they are old and generally more prone to failure than newer stuff. If you're buying vintage equipment online, be sure the seller has tested it and that it is guaranteed to work. I bought a Sansui integrated from the mid 70's on eBay a few months ago and one...

    Desoldering Methods?

    I like using the desoldering braid that they sell at Radio Shack. Be sure not to hold on to it with your fingers when you're desoldering as it can be very painful! (I have personal experience with this)

    I believe Adire also makes a prebuilt version of the HE10.1 that they call the Kosala (please correct me if I'm wrong).

    Sleater-Kinney rocks! Their drummer Janet can really kick ass on the drums. They have a sort of unique setup with two girls on vocals and guitars + a drummer with no bass player. Right now I like All Hands on the Bad One a little better than One Beat but that could be because All Hands on the...

    WTB: Bolder Type 1 cables for ART DI/O

    Hi, I'm looking for a used pair of Bolder Cable Type I interconnects for the ART DI/O (with the voltage divider network built into the cable). I think the output of the DI/O is a little too hot for my NAD amp. If anyone is willing to sell one for a good price, please send me an email or PM...

    need integrated amp recommendations

    I think you connect the K1000 directly to the speaker terminals of an amp. Here's a link to a review of the K1000 with the nOrh SE9 and the Antique Sound Lab MG SI-15 dt: Original review of AKG K1000...

    I used to be into comic books, but lost interest after jr. high. I think I began to find some of the plots in the books I was reading too silly and/or repetitive. I second Shivohum's recommendation for the "Watchmen" miniseries written by Alan Moore. It's sort of about how costumed heros...
