    Took the plunge

    I took the plunge and purchased 2 KRK Rokit-Powered G2 speakers to replace my 10 yr old Sony stereo for use with my computer. After 2 days, I am amazed at how much better they sound over the old stereo. Even out of the box, they sounded SO much more superior than any stereo I've heard. I...

    Any point in resisting integrated batteries?

    Just as the title says..*is* there much point in resisting mp3 players with integrated batteries? More and more new ones coming out have them, less and less have AA or AAA batteries. Soon you won't be able to find any mp3 players which use AA or AAA batteries, aside from people selling on ebay.
