    What to put next to the recliner in a quiet room?

    Decided to try Volumio (Free) on a Cubox ($150) with my Music Streamer II Can be controlled via basically anything else on the LAN. I am quasi comfortable with Linux so... worth a shot anyway.

    What to put next to the recliner in a quiet room?

    My home theater room has a PC w/Music Streamer II -> Headroom Little -> few different sets of cans (Senn 580, Grado SR325 among others). Everything is under a little end table to the right of the recliner. Complaints with this setup: 1. PC is aging and takes a while to boot 2. PC has a little...

    Objective 2 Amp

    Same as the amp I bought less than 1 month ago here:   Its fine.  I just find the sound too clean.  I like my stuff a little warmer.  And I thought I was going to use it for two...

    Brainwavz M2 - BARELY used

    I went on a little kick and bought 5 different IEMs over the last few weeks.  These just aren't to my liking.  They are fitted with Comply TX 400s.  Essentially new condition.  Will send via USPS priority mail envelope.

    Rockit Sounds R-50 Reviews and Impressions

    I have had mine for about a week.  Also just rockboxed a clip+ for the first time in that week.  The R50 sound a lot fuller with the Future Sounds foamies recommended earlier but still don't pair as well with the clip+ as my Hippo VBs.  My iPod video on the other hand (also rockboxed), they...

    Rockit R-50 IEM Foam tips?

    Yep.  No listing.  There is no diameter info on the site or the packaging.

    Rockit R-50 IEM Foam tips?

    Hey gang,   I essentially always need foam tips for IEMs... I have big honkin ears and I need something that expands to keep them in place/get a good seal.   Can anyone link me to or give me good search terms for tracking down foam tips that will work with these?  I really like Comply...

    Go-Vibe 5: What!Mate?!

    I posted a long first impression post above (6-8 posts up) and I am back after 5 days to say... well spent. I'm using this Low Imp GV5/IEM combo more than any other setup I've ever had (except my home stereo and EMU/desktop amp/full size can stuff). Its so portable. So awesome. I'm...

    Amp suggestion for: iPod + ER-6i + TurbodockII

    Ohhhh, I didn't realize Ray had built something in this class. I met him a couple years ago at a Nashville Head-Fi meet and all his stuff sounded wonderful. I'll have to shoot him an email. EDIT: EEEP! $350 retail

    Amp suggestion for: iPod + ER-6i + TurbodockII

    I have the Supermini 1.0 and even with new batteries I never use it because of the noise The noise isn't audible in SR325s or Senn 580s but in those IEMs it is clear as day. Went though some rough spots financially this year but now I can spend some dough to get something listenable...

    ~$100 IEM for use w/iPod + XinSuperMini?

    Howdy, Superficial Headroom browsing and dashing around the fora seem to indicate this will come down to either the E2c or the 3. I've already emailed Turbo about a dock -> 1/8" out adapter. I've *really* gotten in to poker and though I love my Grado325s and various Senns, they're...

    Quality recording, bass guitar rich, clean... bluesy? rock

    I just listened to "My Lovely Man" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers off of the Blood Sugar Sex Magic album about 10 times in a row. Holy crap. My eardrums are bleeding. But man... I haven't enjoyed a recording/listening session that much in a while. I DEMAND YOU SUGGEST STUFF IN THE SAME...

    Static/Clipping in sound playback w/2 different cards

    My 1212 died (cap popped off the card and I don't have the skills to solder it so the part with the 1/4 jacks is sitting out till I can get it to someone to patch it). So I'm down to "regular old" sound cards for the time being. Fortissimo III for a Revolution 7.1 and even a Sonica all have...

    Help with EMU DSP PatchMix & 1212m

    Hello helpful Head Fi people, I have a problem with my (Iron Dreamer modified) 1212m sounding "hot". It isn't terrible, and it is controllable... it sounds great, but it isn't "loud". And by golly, every once in a while I want it LOUD. It was really bad before this summer's Nashville Head...

    I can't get Sonica 1205 drivers to install

    Bleh... It even says 1205 in the install screen. Everything else sounds weird. Wave out, DS and DS with hardware mixing. The first two sound way to tinny and w/hardware mixing sounds all... like my cans were coated in pudding. EDIT: Huh... the 1220s show up as 1209s in the...

    Finding rechargeable batteries for the SR-71

    Have you listened to them both? I got to at the Nashville meet last weekend and let me tell you. The SR-71 made my mouth water. I kept saying "portable amplifiers really shouldn't be able to sound that good" However, when I walked across the room and plugged in to the XP-7 I was saying...

    Interest in a Nashville, TN meet?

    Hey Archos, If I bring my tower, do you have a monitor, keyboard and mouse I can use for the day? Basically, can I unplug one of your towers? I've got my lossless collection here, but pulling the peripherals all out would be a pain in the ass.

    Please help me set up my new 1212

    Ack That didn't work either. Really, everything has been crap. However, basically, I created a New ASIO Direct Monitoring session and deleted all the strips but the ASIO, then I gave it a send. This is the only config that doesn't distort at moderate or louder volumes. Here is the one...

    Interest in a Nashville, TN meet?

    I've got Ray. He is coming in Sat @ 10:30 am. If someone else could get him to his hotel that would be cool. My afternoon is still shaky.

    EAC and used CDs

    I ripped my whole 120+ CD collection last month to .flac I tried 4 different drives and I think it was a Sony that got through error correction the quickest... no where near half an hour a track. Half hour per VERY BAD DISC, maybe. And we're talking some 12 year old CDs in the lot. CDs...

    Please help me set up my new 1212

    The -10 think took out the distortion. Honestly, I went out last night (Better Than Ezra played at a local thing called "Uptown Mix" which is like a 20's & 30's weekly music thing near Vanderbilt) and got drunk. I only got to listen to a song or two before I got drunk, and this morning I was...
