    Summer is upon us and it is only May still

    I had to turn on the AC already because it was too hot for me. I don't usually turn it on until the end of June. I live in the B.C. interior and it can get very hot and dry here during the summer. Wish I was rich so I could have a home in an area with a colder summer climate to go to for the few...

    Best cover of a Joy Division song you have ever heard?

She used to be bass player for Dream Syndicate then played with a band called Opal and then went solo and did a couple of EPs and one studio album and then became a hermit. Just bought her album called Five Ways of Disappearing from iTunes and it...

    Look at this url. Astronomy Picture of the Day It says currently earth is possibly 4c below average temp compared to last 100 mil years but in the last 100 years it has risen 1c. That means we are still 3c below average. My point is this: what is the big deal about all these concerns over...

    Let me put it another way. (re:Is AKG K271MKII good for punk/grunge?)

    Looking for another set of headphones with a bit of rolled off highs for music that sometimes can benefit from such a headphone. Is K271MKII suitable for my purpose or is there another headphone that is smooth sounding with a bit of rolled off treble that is better and not too expensive?

    Madonna has outsold Bowie!

    I'm shocked that such a vacuous musical novelty like Madonna can outsell the likes of Bowie. Especially considering that he has been making records for quite a bit longer than her too. What is this world coming to? List of best-selling music artists - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I just don't trust these HD650s as being legit

    I mean, look at the price. CAD: $437.85 In Canada the HD650 cost between $600.00 CAD and $650.00 CAD (which is way overpriced by Sennheiser Canada themselves and not the stores) at any sore I have seen (online and retail) so how is it possible for this store to sell them for so much less if they...

    Bose headphone displays are against hygiene health laws?

    Whenever I ask in a store if I can listen to any headphones I am interested in they always say they can't do that anymore due to hygiene health laws. Well, then why are they allowed to have those Bose demo displays if that is true?

    What do you think about tuning dots?

    Yesterday I bought a pair of Totem Sttaf speakers and noticed these blue dots on the top edge of each tweeter. Nothing in the literature about them that came with the speakers so just did a bit of research and found out they are called tuning dots and are supposed to help with resonance or some...

    Tip if buying Lunchbox Pro

    Make sure to tell them to send the correct power cable when ordering. Received mine on Saturday and was sent a three prong cable when the Lunchbox only uses a 2 prong cable so it wouldn't fit into the back of the Lunchbox. If it wasn't for the fact I happened to have the exact cable I needed not...
