    Post the last thing you bought. Oh fun!

    Sandisk Sansa E250 from rockboxed it, added an 8GB SDHC card and am very happy . 'Cept for the screen size maybe... if it were bigger I'd watch videos on it more often. Also planning on upgrading to a 16 or 32GB card when they drop in price & come up in speed class.

    Philips SHE9500 review

    I like the laid-back quality myself... I can listen louder/longer,without ringing ears. But i'm not a metalhead or anything, & fans of more aggressive music might want to think about it. I dunno. Non EQ-snobs can always boost the treble a bit :-p.

    FS: Headsave Go-Vibe V2

    *Bump* - going up on eBay soon. Someone take a chance on the v2, it's a terrific sounding portable amp with AD8620 opamp installed. Unfortunately I don't listen portably/amped anymore.

    oh my god whats wrong with me?!

    Why not get a mini to RCA and use a 1/4" plug adapter? Should have about zero effect on the sound.

    What Do You Spend Your Hard-Earned Money On

    Damn, I keep missing the joke about coke & thinking Saturnine was talking about the actual drug (it does exist, for better or worse). Oh well, previous post deleted. Probably inappropriate for head-fi anyway.
