    I did mention the slight emphasis on mids and highs, but I find it very comfortable. I only like the earthquake bass in movies. On top of that I don't usually relate with internet reviews too well. For instance, I hear a lot of criticism that my speakers (B3031A) "dont hav enuff bass", while I...

    AFAIK you're allowed to mention NwAvGuy, unless links are thrown, you just got to do it in a subtle manner so the Gestapo won't be trying to liquidate you for attempting to demolish their sponsorship empire ;)

    Ya'll bitches posting on a Jude page! Actually nevermind someone rearranged posts in a way that puts me on a different page so now I look like a total tool :D As an on-topic addition, I moved my fan headers from a controller to motherboard, applied fan throttling schemes in BIOS, and my desktop...

    The A2 will most likely do fine for non-headphone listening and casual volume levels. If you can get the A5 though, I'd say "bigger is better" in this case ;) Bigger, and not too expensive options I personally loved: - Behringer B2030A (most likely cheapest of these three), my boyfriend had...

    Holy crap, if you can get Genelecs for so little (they're 420€ a pair, between 500-600 USD here) I would get them in a jiffy! I might and most likely would buy them over my 8" Behringer monitors if I could trade them for no lost money. I have heard them both, not in the same space against each...

    I would not recommend the Audioengine 2's, they're way too small to reproduce the whole frequency range, and if you try getting them louder to hear some lows too, they're going to go beyond their maximum woofer excursion and distort, BADLY. For very low listening volumes they are adequate, but...

    Value: I paid a steep price for them, you can get it for about $129 nowadays from some places, which would drive the value a lot higher. Still okay IMO. Audio Quality: Doesn't distort, doesn't cause ear-fatigue which I'm usually sensitive to, authentic and unemphasized, precise lows, natural...

    Value Having a thing for throw-away grade earbuds, I saw these pretty sleek things for 9,90€ in a supermarket and thought hey, why the hell not! I wasn't expecting anything, but damn these little things surprised me! Audio Quality The lowest of low frequencies roll off ever so slightly, so...

    I would agree, I would be much less interested in digital signal processing and electronics, D/A and A/D conversion and compression if I didn't like audio so much.

    Pictures of your computer rigs! Post them here!

    Yeah it might look funny, but to be honest I only hear the separation between tweeter and woofer if I put my ear next to the speaker, right now they're good two feet away from my ears, and positioned in an even-sided triangle with my head, and they work surprisingly well for their relatively big...

    Post pic(s) of your latest "significant" purchase(s)!!! v2.0

    M-Audio Fast Track Pro, sound is clear and just like it should be, and it looks quite "pro" :D T.Bone SC-600 large diaphragm condenser microphone, sounds lovely although I was first skeptic because of all the hate they're getting. Either I'm deaf or the pro-audio world has just as much hype...

    Review equipment: AKG K272 HD, Sony XB-500, Sennheiser CX-300 II and Behringer B3031A studio monitors. Compared with FiiO E7 and Realtek ALC892 integrated. Value I gave it the full score, because I got it for $120, yet it includes diverse inputs, balanced 1/2 outputs, switchable headphone...

    I wonder do USB 1.1 audio interfaces suffer if they're behind a powered USB 2.0 hub. At least some have issues with USB 3.0 from what I've heard. I was thinking of throwing my computer tower under my bed, as to reduce the amount of audible noise. I don't really feel like putting money into...

    Audible examples of different audio phenomena and terms?

    Someone else could do that, or if there's a way to accurately simulate tubes with a VST plugin, and we could get a green light from someone who knows how tube distortion sounds like (in headphone and speaker amplifiers, not guitar or bass cabinet amplifiers), then that would be swell!

    Audible examples of different audio phenomena and terms?

    Seen that hi-fi as a whole has a plenty of terms you might not be familiar with in your everyday life, I would love to have a few audible examples that make it very clear to the listener, what sort of a feature or flaw in the sound are they listening for. Another reason for this "reference...

    I would advise against investing into replacement cable in pursuit of audial improvement, but the ability to swap parts for maintenance is great and what every other manufacturer should practice. The cables very unlikely have a real difference, whereas your DAC, amplifier and headphones do...

    Post pictures of your setup!

    Don't be too modest, hennnkee, that's a really nice setup and I would love to have it as a second reference, a quite different amplifier and headphone choice but still very lovely and desirable! To be honest I'd want two sets, one for the tinfoil hatted ABX objectivists, with a well measured...

    Good to know! It's not AMD's fault that I picked up an imcompatible cooler though (Hyper 212+ doesn't list the X6 series, and they do have a 125-140W TPD)

    I guess it comes from the impression that vinyl is analog, and better represents the infinite amount of steps between two values that happen in the real world than digital, which is for CD, 44.1 thousand samples per second saved into 16 bits of volume information. I've seen some people say that...
