    Anybody ever had to have Sensaphonics repaired?

    I'm afraid I need to send my Sensaphonics in and have them repaired. I've had them for a year and a half, and now the right monitor is not working properly. It has almost no volume, and what is there sounds awful. Has anyone here sent their Sensaphonics in for work? I'm a little worried...

    Which zip utility????

    I need a zip/unzip utility. Mostly just to unzip compressed files. I googled for one and the choices are many and confusing. Not to mention everyone wants 20 to 30 bucks. Is one program better than the others? I noticed that some open more types of files than others. How often would I come...

    D-Skin CD protector?

    Hey has anyone ever tried D-Skin? It's a plastic thing that snaps to your CDs to keep them from getting scratched. I was wondering if it might have some effect on the sound like some of the mats out there. I haven't seen it mentioned here, and a search came up empty. It looks interesting to me.

    How can I make mono in to stereo?

    The title of this thread is a bit misleading. I have a friend that recorded his old mono taped music onto CDs and they all came out with sound from just the right side. Not too bad with speakers but it'll give ya a headache with headphones. We are trying to figure out how to split the mono or...

    I Need opinions on anti virus software.

    My Norton 2004 subscription is going to expire in a couple weeks. Should I simply renew it, or try something different? I haven't had any trouble with Norton.

    scroll right for page numbers????

    I hope I am not the only one that sees this. When I view a thread that has more than 30 pages or so, the page numbers just keep going to the right. Sometimes everything else is stretched to the right along with them. The scroll bar at the bottom of the page sometimes is very short, indicating...

    Should HDCD be a consideration?

    I have been shopping for a new CD player. There are several I have considered. Everything from a modified Shannling T100 to a modified Music Hall. I have always wanted an Arcam FMJ CD23t. The only problem is that the Arcams do not have HDCD capabilities. Neither does the Wadia which is a player...

    What do you use for a start page?

    I have used a couple of sites as my start/home site. I am currently using but I really don't like it. I looked at Lycos, but I am not to sure about them either. There has to be something better out there. So, where does your computer go when you hit the home icon?

    I have searched these forums for info on the Nordost Black Knight interconnect cables. Either nobody uses them or they are just not talking about them. I understand the higher end Nordost are quite good, but how about their low end? I need to connect my Sony NS500V to my Onkyo reciever using...

    I was just reading an old thread from last year on quiting smoking. I have been planning on quiting this coming December. Since that thread went a little south into the Cheech & Chong territory I decided to start a new one. I read how some of you quit years ago and some were trying to quit...

    A Novice's view of Pana SL-CT570

    I finally did it. I ordered the Panasonic CT570. I figured that I would not be able to hear any difference between it and my Sony D-MJ95. Or, at best I might be able to get a hint of a difference. Well, I'm shocked! The difference between these two players is most significant. Kinda like an mp3...
