    Trying to connect Edifier S730 to laptop

    Yeah it's either a speaker fault or the cables, I'm going to do more testing tonight. Thanks for the help.

    Questions about ripping DVD audio

    Let's say for a rock concert 1) Is it automated or you need to input the song lengths? 2) Will PAL be able to be read from my external DVD USB drive? I read that you can change the region only 5 times? Thanks.

    The good science fiction recommendation thread

    It's still on Netflix if you know how to use a VPN + can tolerate foreign subtitles.   Sadly it never included the for-TV-movies or the extended episodes.

    Caffeine addicts anonymous

    3-4 100mg caffeine pills per day.   Stopped drinking it because I only care about the buzz it provides.

    Age of Empires 2: HD Edition   10/10   Sadly it's badly optimised, lags on my computer depending on the population / map size.

    New Portal and Half Life Movie

    J.J. Abrams is a decent director.    That said, I doubt this will fare well at the box office.

    Which MP3 player - mostly for working out? Sony NWZ-A17, FiiO Whatever or iPod Touch (128GB)... others?

    Surprised to see Shure SE-215 recommended as sports earbuds at a few places; two pairs of mine died after gentle use (hopefully under warranty). Each time one earbud just stopped to work.

    Which MP3 player - mostly for working out? Sony NWZ-A17, FiiO Whatever or iPod Touch (128GB)... others?

    Greeting friends,    As mentioned in title. Sorry if this is vague, I'm currently on the fence about my next purchase. Shouldn't have sold my iPod classic a while back. :-(   Budget should be no more than $400 CAD unless it's worth it. Storage is important.    The music I'm going to listen...

    Bizarre 320kbps files?

    Hi,   So basically I've been using Spectro (spectrogram program) on my music collection, and I've stumbled on a few oddities. A few of my Iron Maiden albums (all in .mp3 format) have some cutoffs like 16Hz or 18Hz despite being ripped directly from the retail-bought legit CDs at 320kbps CBR...

    Speaker damage/degradation from sudden & short relatively high volume?

    Greetings.   So basically I recently turned on my audio system (Edifier S730) without remembering that Windows' sound was at around 85-90 percent or so (due to a previous video with really poor audio). It was really loud (especially the bass from the woofer), at least compared to what I'm...

    DC offset spike?

    Asked everywhere else, and the sole advice I keep receiving is to be extra careful when plugging and unplugging. At least I asked an electrician, and it's not an electric problem with the house. Thanks all nonetheless.

    DC offset spike?

    Hi,    (not sure whether I'm in the right forum, if not please move) A few days ago, I accidentally damaged one of the speakers of an audio system (Edifier S730), most probably because of a loud and high-pitched distortion (noise?) that happened when the system was connected or disconnected...

    Spectral analysis help

    Hi,   Not sure if I'm in the right section; please move if this is not the case, and if it is possible.   To get the point, I have recently discovered spectral analysis, and have been using it on my MP3 collection; mostly to root out "lesser quality" 320kbps CBR files. However, being a...
