    Cell phone as a one stop for all things.

    Hey all forgive me if this is in the wrong forum. I want to replace a rock boxed large hard disk with a one size fits all solution. What smart phone is out or coming that can do it all. Play flac, have reasonably large hard disk and connect via 3g and wifi. Thanks, B

    I thought when I read the review of the new product coming from UE that there was some new cables being sold. I have been waiting using my green (purchased clear) cables to hear if replacement cables will work with SF 5 pro Is. Any news, have I missed something? B

    Things that make you go hmmmm.

    Hmmm, I see an ad for a waterproof headphone here at HF. And it makes me go hmmmm. Is there some DAP that is waterproof? What would you use these things for? Or lastly is there some sort of exercise that would make your ears require waterproof IEMs, like cycling? B

    Not happy with CD and IPOD.

    I really do not like the fact that I have to control my IPOD with crappy s/w. However the CD companies do not do themselves any favours when I can not get my music to rip into Itunes. The CD in question is The Little Willies and explorer sees it as a DVD. I was able to get it to FLAC in...

    Baby Snakes or new player?p

    Has anyone seen this movie of a NY concert? It is a Frank Zappa family reporoduction and I thought it was quite good. I listened to it in 5.1 and was impressed by how much the rear speakers were used. Now I must say I had to pickup a new DVD player and have not heard any of my other music...

    Hey all, I just picked up at Costco a CD by GOLD of the band Steppenwolf. SO far listening has been good. This is another CD I have picked up by the GOLD label and it sounds good. Is this a company that others have recommended? The others I have picked up were Rush and Pete Townsend. B

But it was absolutely amazing on my speakers, it was so good I was drooling in anticipation of the bonus CD. When I put...

    Where does Lou Reed fit in?

    I read ablot of the Beatles vs Dylan influnce/who is/was better. And it makes me think of Lou Reed, and how many current rock/prog rock bands were influnced by his music. I wonder how you would classify his style because it changed much over the many years. He went from pure punk, before the...
