    This makes you think...

    Yesterday I was all ready to head to the local shooting range. I had my gear all packed up and waiting in my car when work had a crisis I had to get involved in. It turns out that I would have been walking into this hostage situation. As glad as I am to have missed the party it's still had me...

    The Aristaeus has landed

    Well after a long wait the Aristaeus has landed. So far, so good though it's still first impressions at this point. Speed is phenomenal! So far the only setup I've heard get the drums attack this right is the HE-60 on cymbals. The HE-90 / Aristaeus combo is getting them right across the board...

    Anyone using NJB3 with Firewire?

    Just curious, I've had pretty good luck with USB but when I went to Firewire today it couldn't make it through more than transferring 15 tracks from the NJB3 to the computer before hanging or crashing with a Application Error. Is there a trick to this I'm missing?

    Help me cheat

    Hi, I'm hoping to cut through the red tape and get a quick idea of what portable players to consider along with a quick recomendation for ripping software. It looks like I might be out of the country for a couple months. I will not be able to transport my CDs along with me so I would like to...

    San Jose Mini-Mini-Meet

    Morsel and I got together today and did a San Jose mini-mini-meet. We wanted to do an in-depth comparison of the Gilmore V2 against the PPA. So we got together and listened to the two with my Meridian 588 and an A/B switch for cutting between the two amplifiers. Oh yeah, and a little Persian...

    Popping Coming From Amplifier

    I just received my new SuperMini amplifier from Fixup and it sounds great. One thing I am noticing though is that very half hour or 45 minutes, there is a quick double poppong noise coming out of the system. When I rewind the CD the noise is not repeated and I have listened to the CDs many times...
