    Rockbox for Archos Studio 10?

    I'll third that. It's MUCH nicer than what comes with the unit.

    Attack of the Clones- anyone seen it?

    The first time I saw AOTC (bootleg divx) I thought it was alright. Much better than TPM. I then went and saw it at the theater...what a difference the second viewing made. This movie is almost pure crap. The last half hour is pretty good, it's just the first hour and fourty minutes. Most of...

    The CHAIR: The final frontier. The ultimate audio "tweak"?

    This is the chair I'm *trying* to get: The chick at the furniture store said between $750 - $850. But of course she won't know for sure until Wednesday. She also claimed that she would give me a discount for waiting (she couldn't find the leather sample book, then when she did it was the...

    Do you have other hobbies (expensive?).

    I just got started with the whole saltwater aquarium/reef tank thing about a month ago. I've only put about $250-$300 into it so far (and this is just a small 6 gallon due to lack of space).

    John Ashcroft is on Team Sennheiser

    I agree with Redshifter, Adolf Ashcroft doesn't like things that make you happy.

    Requiem For A Dream - The movie

    Since this is somewhat of a niche film, how many of you saw Darren Aronofsky's other film, Pi? That too is an excellent movie. Oh yeah, Requiem was WAAAAYYY better than Trainspotting.

    please be gentle

    First off, I'm no expert. But here it goes. Impedence is resistence. It is measured in ohms. The lower the number, the easier they are to drive. Meaning that 32ohm cans require less power than say 80ohm cans. I hope that made sense (and I hope it is correct). And in my opinion, you can't go...

    Under $100 USD.. what can I do??

    I don't know why everyone says the Grado's are uncomfortable. I've owned both the SR-80's and the SR-325's. I did bend the headband out a little, but it was never uncomfortable. They may not be as comfortable as the Sennheiser's velour pads, but I wouldn't call them uncomfy. And the SR-80's...

    Under $100 USD.. what can I do??

    The Grado SR-80's are definitely worth it. And if you don't like them...return them.

    Sony DVP-NS500V owners (question)

    I don't have an A/V receiver. And I don't have a 5.1 channel preamp (well, I do, but it's the DD decoder/preamp that I'm trying to get rid of).

    Do OTL amps damage headphones?

    I always plug my cans in BEFORE I turn on the amp and have never had a problem. If I turn it on and plug them in I get that snap. I also unplug them before turning the Head off. If I leave them in while turning it off I get the same snap/pop. Kinda strange that you seem to be getting the...

    Sub-$50 interconnect recommendation?

    I just finished making my BL-1's with WBT clone RCA's. For (2) 1m runs it cost ~$30 per stereo set. Of course I had to spend some time soldering, but to save $60 off of retail per cable...not too shabby. I also ordered a 4ft run of T-14 speaker cable for my center channel (but forgot to order...

    I hate best buy...

    You don't want to work at Circuit ****ty anyway. Working on commission at a place like that...ugh.

    Dance/electronica suggestions?

    I'd give Plaid a test listen before you buy it. I love Plaid, but they aren't really along the same lines as Paul Van Dyke.

    The age poll!!! (i'm 15, how about you?)

    I share my b-day with Sammy Hagar...Oct 13th. There's something to be proud of.

    I saw a pic of those last year...well, 2000. It was while trying to find some info on them that I stumbled across Headwize. And now mucho money later.... Someone should buy those though. I've always wondered if they were good or not.

    MG Head OTL

    If you'd have ordered before the new year it would have been $330, but they raised the price (not just Headroom, but Divertech as well).
