    Is Audiophile level sound an acquired taste?

    here's my 2 cents... ive been lurking/posting here for quite some time. My collection is a very modest one, consisting of an ancient cd player from the early 90s (its an aiwa, surprisingly it has an optical out, i forget the model #), a crappy computer with an onboard sound card, a rio karma...

    Do small foldable durable headphones exist?

    sportapros are damn durable, sounds good to my lowly un-audiophile ears, and people here seem to like koss (not as much as PP or ksc75 however). having said that, Im really tempted by these philips headphones actually, a lot of the...

    help me mod my eggo d33

    I recently bought the sony eggo d33 from a head-fier, with the intention of using it as my "every-day beater phone". About the sound... I never heard the d22s but from what im reading im guessing they both sound very similar.... except the d33s come with a much nicer headband. So in spirit of...

    Need a recommendation for a mid-size MP3 player

    let me chime in here... how bout an archos xs202? If i were in the market for a mp3 player, i'd be all over that. from my understanding, it supports file tree browsing and ID3 tags, MSC (drag n drop), its friggin small, 20 gigs and it hovers around the $200 mark.

    MP3 player or MiniDisc player?

    I've been a longtime user of MDs, started with MZ-R50, owned a bunch of them along the way. Nowadays i have a MZ-N510 for snowboarding/working out. I prefer DAPs (currently Rio Karma and Carbon) for their storage capacity. On standard MDs, I can throw in 80mins x 2 = 160 minutes of music(LP2...

    am i making a big mistake? 20gb vs. 5gb player

    I second the carbon, I have one and its great 1) self-databasing, no software needed. Just drag n drop 2) browse through ur song by either ID3 tags OR folder browsing (very cool) 3) DRM compatible (yahoo, napster, etc) 4) standara mini-usb port, its not a proprietary cable 5)good battery...
