    Budapest now

    Well, I'm not sure if this can fly by under the no politics rule, but I thought I'd throw up a link to my own pictures about the clashes going on in Budapest this week. Here is a choice morsel : Notice anything about the confused-looking dude? Hint: he's blind. He got hit a few times...

    My recent endevours in the world of headphone audio (Hd-201, ack! dac)

    I haven’t really been active on head-fi for quite some time now, and I've tried this and that during this period. Here are my impressions. It turned out a bit longer than I thought. I used the shure e2c's as portable phones for the duration of most of last year, and I really liked them...

    A question to all you computer guys out there

    I have a problem with my computer, something that leads to no damage, but is bugging me. I tried out Kapersky antivirus some time ago, when I thought norton didnt catch everything on the computer. After a while, I uninstalled it, because it was more bother than good. However, if I copy something...

    Hungarian minimeet impressions.

    In the end, out of the 7-8 people expected, there where 4 of us at my place (a friend of mine also turned up, who might soon turn to the dark side). The people: Tamas (a.k.a. Banfi T), Zoltan (a hungarian amp/dac manufacturer), Peter (my friend) and me. Tamas arrived way before the other chap...

    Tord Gustavsen Trio - The Ground

    Go buy this CD now. It's a breathtakingly beautiful jazz album, the first piano trio composition that really grabbed me. Pure, 100% magic. And the sound quality is also something to die for! This is some slow, relaxed jazz, but so sweet it makes you want to cry.

    If you listen to music with foobar or winamp, try this!

    You should try AVS out. It is an incredible visualization application. You can use it in foobar with the bacon plugin, and it is included in the newer winamps by default. You can find AVS presets on the winamp site, deviantart and whyeye. There are some real beauties out there, I recommend...

    Recording Music: Some Pointers?

    Tomorrow I'm going to help my friends record some music. They have a ska-jazz band (clarinet, sax, guitar, piano, bass, drums). We'll be using my EMU 0404 card (with 2 microphones I think. Maybe a third one will be used with another computer, but that would be with onboard audio ). I have never...

    Do you consider yourself an audiophile?

    EDIT: This poll is public, if you havent noticed. So, do you consider yourself an audiophile? I will not give definitions here, since the question conserns your feelings on the subject, and I'm sure everybody has an inner concept of what it is. If you feel like it, also post why.

    T-amp has arrived!

    First impression: so small! I was expecting something bigger from the pics. And it sounds good. I was using it with batteries, I tried a 12V psu (just something I found laying around) but the amp started buzzing audibly (the amp ITSSELF) and started getting warm, so I said no thanks. I'll have...

    Counter strike help

    I have a couple of counter-strike questions. 1. How do you record a demo? 2. Is there any command that stops the program from dowloading server-specific custom sound files? I am sick of waiting 5 mins to join in because somebody thought haveing swearwords in sound is funny. Thanks, Akos

    A change in atmosphere?

    It seems to me (even as a relatively new member) that the general atmosphere on head-fi has changed in the past months, and not in a positive direction. Any thoughts? When I joined, this was an incredibly friendly forum, but I see a decrease in tolerance lately. Is it just that I am seeing a...

    Waaah! I want my hd-600's!

    The cable on my set broke, so I used the event to finally justify buying a new, "improved" cable. But the headphile cable will probably be here in 2 weeks, so all I have now are my shures (they hurt after a while) and an old technics supraaural headphone. Let me tell you, it is nowhere near the...

    Nine Inch Nails

    I recently aquired the album : the downward spiral from NIN, never having heard the band before (unless you count Quake) and I was very pleasantly surprised. I dont reallly like hard rock or metal or punk (only Mogwai), I listen to more positive-outlook music usually, but this is good. Can you...

    Emu 0404 install

    I'm having a heck of a hard time installing an EMU 0404. I plug it in, start windows, install the drivers, and restart. Then, Big Blue Screen Of Death comes in, saying driver could not be loaded, ect. If I unplug the card &/ start safe mode, this does not happen. I'm starting to get pissed here...
