    random noises on 1212m

    #1 i'm getting random static on my computer audio, and it's most definitely coming from my sound card. basically, only some of the time for short periods of time, i would get a faint buzzing in the background, which then disappears back to nothing. so far, i found no pattern on why it would...

    Noise problem from 1212m

    ok, now it's come to this as a summary the audio coming out of my speakers were scrumptious, as was the audio out of my headphones, but something new happened: i hear a ground loop noise from my speakers. I unplugged everything except the computer and speaker amp, and ground loop noise is...

    PC speakers recommendations

    i put in another vote for the swans. those are basically the same thing as mine... well, almost. their woofer is a sidestep from mine, and my tweeter is superior, but the same company made all the drivers in my speakers and the swans. for the price, it's unbeatable. the quality is outstanding...

    EMU1212M quick question

    you'll want 1/4"(M)->RCA(F) adapters. two of them. then you can then use rca cables to an amp or a stereo RCA(M)->1/8"minijack(M) to the speakers or amp. if you really need, you can also buy a stereo minijack(F-F) coupler. oh, and if you don't get it, M=male, F=female. you can find these at your...

    so someone i sold my headphones to just showed up at my house..?

    ooooook... after reading ALL that (whew), i have these things to say: both parties are guilty. the buyer was guilty of being what i would call a "dick". shows up unannounced, and does it in a very odd fashion. the seller didn't ship it on the promised day. in fact, he KEPT it for 5 days. in...

    Hail fallin' in San Francisco

    same with davis, but not nearly as bad. it hailed a bit this morning, got a bit of sun in the afternoon, and now it's only going to get really bad. i hope this goes away soon, but then, i'm also not looking forward to the summer heat

    Your favorite movie scores

    hands down it's gotta be Backdraft (Hans Zimmer) for me. it's just plain wonderful. his past stuff is awesome up to around Gladiator. it just sucks that after that it's been either pretty good or really bad. at least The Last Samurai's on the good list

    who spent less than 20 bucks after joining head-fi and why?????

    if i all of a sudden make a new screen name and start posting, would that count as spending less than $20 after joining? I'm not sure what the total running tally is for me at all, especially since i've sold a lot of things and have made some modifications to my equipment. for example, i...

    San Francisco Bay Area Meet?

    i wouldn't call him a sissy, though. he was the one who walked around downtown san mateo with the k1000's strapped to his head, remember? on another note, how are we doing on food at the house? can someone bring a lot of nachos or something? i got my hands on an unused bag of taco bell nacho...

    Safe listening level

    well, you could be super obsessive about it like i am and get an SPL meter from your local radio shack. otherwise, you can do a simple trick to keep at safe listening levels (assuming your environment is relatively quiet). turn your cans/speakers all the way down. then turn them up until you can...

    Build of bose speaker drivers...

    thanks so far yeah, i figured it is made of treated paper. consdering that the cheap-esque single driver tang band speakers i have are treated paper as are the much better hi-vi's sitting right in front of me. ironically, my subwoofer has an aluminum cone. diy'ed, the sub only cost me $250 in...

    Build of bose speaker drivers...

    OK, without turning this into an "i-hate-bose" thread or a flaming thread, i ONLY want this question answered: what materials (and qualities of) are the bose drivers made of, mainly those for the 901's or the acoustimass series. bose doesn't publish the info, and for some reason, i can't...

    What are some of the actions from other drivers that bother you

    these are all the general things... (yeah, i got some weird driving quirks) people who don't use blinkers. i don't care if they cut me off. as long as they use blinkers first i'm all rgiht. people on the left lane of a highway who go 65-70 on a 65 zone. people who go slower than speed...

    San Francisco Bay Area Meet?

    don't forget quiet. i remember last time at the san mateo location, we didn't exactly put silence in the equation, so all the discussions and listening ended up occurring in the same room. and by the way, my decision is final, so the questionmark on my name should be deleted.

    San Francisco Bay Area Meet?

    mark me down for either saturday, preferably in saratoga, although san mateo works too. i'll be bringing the following: the rotel, *possibly* the ety's, *possibly* the k701 if headroom finally ships them, and my piece of deodorant. i'll also bring my camera to take plenty of good...
