Besides that, I want the best card I can get for recording because I do a lot of needle drops. I don't care about the analog output stage because...

    A part of me died today...

    After a couple years of portable audio bliss, my Westone UM2 have taken a turn for the worse. I was on my way to school today and running a little late when I decided I should put on some clean foam tips for my UM2. So I grabbed some spare ones I had lying around and headed out the door. I'm...

    There's always a slacker in the group...

    I'm taking a political science course this term and we're actually having class debates where we split up in groups and argue various issues. I've had a class like this before and it was actually pretty fun debating. The group I was in then was just myself and another guy and it was easy to...

    Thinking about getting a W5000? Why not get a matching PC case!

    Now you just need to find a matching monitor and you're set. Just don't try doing any crazy overclocking, it may go down in flames if there's a spark.

    Larocco Pocket Reference 2: First Impressions (HR-2 comparison)

    Today was the day I finally received my Larocco Pocket Reference 2. For me its been quite a long wait because until two weeks ago, I didn't even have an amp for my SA5000's.

    Alllofmp3.com possibly facing legal troubles.

    http://news.com.com/MP3s+for+pennies...tml?tag=cd.top Apparently their claim that what they were doing was legal in Russia wasn't necessarily true. I still have my doubts about whether they'll prosecute though.

    Just got into vinyl... a couple questions...

    Hey Todd, just wondering if I could ask a couple questions. I've been really interested in dj-ing for a while now so I finally bought myself a Technics 1200mk5. From what I've been told, it's pretty much been the standard for DJ turntables for years. Anyways, I went down to Portland to get...

    Miles Davis - Bitches Brew

    I just got started listening to jazz. At first I started out listening to Herbie Hancock and that was great. I also listened to School Days by Stanley Clark. (There's this 4 minute stretch in the bulk of the first song that I just can't get enough of.) After doing a little more research and...

    Listening to bad headphones is harder now...

    The more I listen to quality headphones, the harder it is for me to listen to sub-par headphones. I was using my eggos at work, but I got sick of listening to them with their lack of bass and harsh highs. So I've been taking my AT's to work, but I forgot them there and now all I have is my eggos...
