    Kings of Leon... Yay or Nay?

    For some reason I wrote them off a long time ago but I hear a song once in a while that has me pull up an album for a listen. Listening to 'Mechanical Bull' right now. Something I might throw on when driving several hours right before I start to fall asleep and switch to Pantera - Vulgar...

    Impressed with onboard sound of new Haswell PC

    I just picked up a Dell box mainly for my wife to be able to work from home. I threw my FLAC collection on it and setup Foobar the other day and when I plugged my Grados in I was pleasantly surprised. This onboard audio sounds much better to my ears than the old Realtek 97 audio on my old PC...

    Journey From Headphone to Vintage Audio

    Head-Fi really opened up Audio as a hobby to me. I started off here after I bought a Rio Karma and was looking into new headphones, as many people do. For a long time I was content with my nice IEMs and a portable music player. Then I got the itch to build a "PC as Source" setup with a dedicated...

    Sansa Fuze: Late to the party...

    So, I was searching for a cheap-o mp3 player to give to my girlfriend for her B-day and I just happen to walk in to a Radio Shack while they were having a sale on the 4gb Fuze ($59.99). I had no idea the reputation of this player when I bought it, but it looked pretty good for the price...

    In Rememberance of the Rio Karma

    I'm putting some music on this little Sansa Fuze I bought my girlfriend for her birthday. It's a pretty sweet little player. Then I started reminiscing about all the wonderful time I spent with my Rio Karma back in the day. HEY! Why the heCK hasn't anything come along IN 6 YEARS that comes...

    Sara Watkins Solo Debut (from Nickel Creek)

    So I got home late last night just in time to catch the end of Fallon. Much to my suprise, I find Sara Watkins with Sean Watkins' guitar accompaniment and JOHN PAUL JONES playing bass?! Now I find out that she released her debut solo album today and it's produced by Jones! What is it...

    Ever get scared by your headphones?

    Right now I'm listening to 'Fleet Foxes' on my homer rig and I was sitting here reading around head-fi and between 2 songs I heard some voices from behind me on either side of my head. A chill ran down my spine and I spun around to see who was behind me. Took me a second to realize that it was...

    Soul Crushing Instrumentals

    Not that they're sad or somber in their tone, but music that makes you feel insigificant because of how mind-blowing it is. Stuff that shows you that you have no hope of ever creating something so awesome. Makes me wanna cry. I've been out of the 'head-fi' world for a while due to the drain...

    Violin, a perfect jazz instrument.

    Right now I'm listening to a supergroup recording with Norman Blake, Tut Taylor, Sam Bush, Butch Robins, Vassar Clements, David Holland, and Jethro Burns. Most of the songs on here are pretty straight forward instrumental bluegrass but there are a few that are very much jazz. One song features a...

    Buying a Pro-Ject TT, NeedleDoctor Ok?

    I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with Needle Doctor. I'm going to buy a Pro-Ject Debut III and I want to have the cartridge swapped out before they ship it to me. Is there any reason not to have them do it there (would you trust them to set it up properly?). I'm planning on...

    Considering Pro-Ject Debut III

    For a while I've been in the "buy an old turntable for better value" camp, but lately I've been tempted by the Pro-Ject Debut III. Here's a few things that I've been pondering: - From what I've heard about the Ortofon OM-5E I'm sure I'll be replacing it right away. What is a good cart...

    So... Who is hitting the slopes this week?

    Well, after a dismal outlook on the skiing season by everyone here in Arizona we get 2 big early December storms and end up with an awesome start to the season. Skiing/Snowboarding really isn't synonomous with Arizona, but we do in fact have a couple decent parks. In the past 2 weeks Arizona...

    Any Archers on Head-Fi?

    As a young lad I learned to shoot a bow and spent a few years shooting with my dad. I started out with one of those little red compound bows and later moved up to a 30# recurve until I stopped shooting. In Jr. High school I got a PSE hunting bow but I never really shot it. At the end of high...

    Insignia Bookshelves in Verizon Qmusic ad?

    Has anyone else seen a Verizona/Moto commercial for a smart phone where they show a stack of (apparantly) upside down Insignia Bookshelves with bright red diaphragms?

    Vanessa Hudgens of 'High School Musical' showing her business.

    I saw this coming from one-thousand miles away. A while back her and her boyfriend (Zac Efron) were both interviewed on a television tabloid show where they made it pretty clear that they're ready to become a TMZ holywood garbage couple. Not too classy. Zac 'Holywood Playboy' Efron was saying...

    Todd Rundgren - Something/Anything?

    I just received a nice stack of vinyl from a fellow head-fier and this album was in the mix. Not having any idea who Todd Rundgren was, I didn't play it right away but since the vinyl was in really good shape I threw the first disc of 'Something/Anything?' on last night. Right away I...

    ralphp@optonline

    This guy is great! He sent me 35 records (not a bunch of junk either, rather, awesome, classic, timeless recordings) for the cost of shipping! Obviously he doesn't do much dealing on here without a feedback thread, but I wouldn't hesitate to deal with him. Thank you very much Ralph, -Ingo

    Great Junk Store LP Find Today

    (Loggins and Messina - Onstage) Well, I spent a couple hours digging through several hundred pounds of vinyl at a local thrift shop today. This was the only good album I found out of the whole pile, but a decent condition 2-LP set for $0.50 is pretty cool. I'm amazed at the sound of this...

    If you were limited to $200 what would you buy?

    If you only had $200 to spend on a headphone that you would keep for the rest of your life, what headphone would it be? Let's assume you can get whatever amp, source, ect. you want. Why would you want that particular headphone? I'm not asking this question because I'm looking for headphones...

    So I bought my first LP today...

    ...even though I don't have anything to play it with yet. I was at Bookmans (Used Media Store) and I was browsing through the LPs just for fun. Well I've been trying to get into vinyl for quite a while, but I still haven't found a segway. I found a pristine copy of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's...

    John Butler Trio - Grand National

    I had been waiting for this album for quite a while but somewhere back a few months ago I lost track of it. At about 11pm tonight I find out that this album's release date is tomorrow (today 3/27). I call up my late night local record store to see if they have it and sure enough they did. Zia...

    Just Discovering 'The Smithereens'

    My stepmom turned me on to 'The Smithereens' a while back and I finally got around to buying a couple albums today. For some reason before I actually heard them I thought they were some sort of a New Wave or punk rock band or something. One morning I was visiting my dad and stepmom and she had...

    Possibly a spy photo of HD700 & New Senn Dynamic Amp?

    I guess it's an early April Fools joke.

    What do you think of Death Cab For Cutie?

    Death Cab... is totally not my kind of music, or so I thought. I was buying CDs a few days ago and decided to get 'Transatlanticism' as a kind of a "wild card" pick. Well, the first time I listened to it I was distracted and I kinda felt like it was way too melancholy for my taste. Well, upon...

    Head-fi Poker Players

    I searched and found some old threads about poker, but I bet there's a few more players here now. I just got into playing Hold'em but I'm really really psyched about it. I was never into Poker, but when NBC started airing "Poker After Dark" this year I watched and I wanted. So, I signed up at...
