    Is there a slick way to print-out a multi-page thread?

    Hi all.  Some of these threads contain lots of good technical information, and I'd like to print them out and put them in a little binder for the equipment in question (in this case an Eddie Current Super 7).  Is there any way to get the whole thread on one continuous document without cutting...

    Can I wash my Sennheiser HD800 earpads?

    Hi all.  I just bought a pair of used HD800's and the earpads have a fragrance to them I'd like to eliminate.  Can anyone give me advise about how to wash them?  I don't know if it's a good idea, but if it is OK, I would guess warm water and dish soap, press the moisture out into a towel, let...

    Using Standard Audio Amplfiers as HP Amps

    I'm hoping someone can give a good account of the pros and cons of this approach.  Specifically, I've heard of people putting 10 ohm resistors across their speaker terminals, or whatever the appropriate values, to hook their headphones directly up to the speaker terminals and allow the amplifier...

    Ming Da MC 84C07 Power Question - 220/10 - Please Help

    Hello to any of you current or former 84C07 users.   I just bought an 84C07 used here on Head-Fi, and one thing is perplexing me.  The power specifications on the back say 220V/50Hz - in two locations - once on the transformer and once above the IEC socket.  The photo on the Pacific Valve...

    Amps for Sony CD3000's

    Hello All, I just heard a pair of CD3000's with a Berning MicroZOTL, and it kicked ****. I bought the cans, and now I need a good amp for them. I also own a pair of HD600's - so it would be nice if the amp drove both well. But I know the HD600's are high impedence whereas the Sony's are low...
