    What's your favorite Live Album?

    Major bump for this thread, but I have to express the greatness of Blind Guardian's Live (2003) album. Simply marvelous. I didn't even enjoy power metal at all before! I don't usually go about recommending stuff, but if I did... this would be it.

    post pics of your headphone set up and listening area

    Sorry... I laughed when I saw those sunglasses. They're crazy - in a good way! I think. Now that there's actually something on my desk, I'll post a pic.

    WTB: Sound Blaster Digital I/O module.

    Why not buy one directly from Creative? edit: Duh, nevermind... they're out of stock.

    Reducing the gain of an Encore?

    I've been using a pair of inline attenuators thus far, but would like to modify the amp so that it'd work better with efficient headphones. The current gain values are 3/11, and I suspect something like 1/6 would be just fine. Not that there's any need to alter the higher gain value - I never...

    Which is better sr325i or hd650. I like a lot of bass.

    Just toss the bowl pads away... that'll sort out any excess brightness.

    Purchased a pair of SR-325i's from Yikes. No surprises here, he shipped them out just about instantly, and kept in touch frequently. Recommended!

    Grado weight - plastic vs. metal

    Well, a lot more replies than I would've expected. Cheers folks, especially Gross and lossless. I believe I'll just go ahead and buy a pair... severe upgraditis ahoy!

    Grado weight - plastic vs. metal

    Simple question: has anyone measured how much the SR-series 'phones weigh as opposed to the ms-2i/325i? I really want to upgrade from the SR125s (lack of deep bass being the primary issue), but can't justify the purchase of the higher end RS-2/1. And while I could buy a pair of 225s, I feel they...

    Coming your way this spring... a Finnish meet!

    I deem the meet to be... a success. Thanks to everyone who dropped by. Hopefully the rest will be able to attend any possible future meetings.

    Coming your way this spring... a Finnish meet!

    Ah, well, let's say 12:00 at the earliest then. The actual duration of the meet will propably be... random. But as long as I can go to the sauna at 20:00, it's all good. Oh and plainsong, I checked the C542's manual, which claims the outputs are - in fact - your average S/PDIF ones. Perhaps...

    Foobar 0.9 out!

    And it's about time, too. Not that we can demand anything. Now to wait for components... ASIO would be nice.

    Anyone managed to fit a voltage divider inside an RCA plug?

    I will propably use a small case when I know which resistors values are suitable, and I have the SPC I need to build the IC. For now I'll do some testing with true ghetto attenuators. I did say I'd post pics but ehh... I covered them with clear plastic tubing and scotch tape, so I don't think...

    Coming your way this spring... a Finnish meet!

    Time for a bump. Is the 25th okay with everyone? I'd also like to know if someone is allergic to cats - if that's the case, I can have someone else take care of them during the meet.

    HF-1 update

    Now, this is good timing. After getting a pair of HD414 pads, I've been enjoying my SR125s moreso than the HD595s, yet I want to upgrade. This could be just what the doctor ordered. With my luck though I will be a few minutes late with my order.

    Lighting fast communication, as well as shipping. Definately recommended!
