    Which Japanese singers are still worth listening ?

    I second Supercar. Not only are they original but they have some of the most creative music videos I've ever seen period. For happy music I really like Yaida Hitomi. I love her voice and the music is just fresh! Another girl voice I adore is Tommy Feb 6 (The brilliant Green). For the hardcore...

    Well after I put my 3.1 gain in.. it is definately better. The hizz at the back is reduced but its still there. Kinda like a perfect face having a small pimple on the nose. I guess I have some interferences. Looks like I'll check my crappy soldering job again. I'm so close I can feel it.

    What book do you recommend for a beginner? I think I'll be majoring in EE in college. Everyone have to start somewhere

    Cmoy question (n00b alert)

    Well I built myself a cmoy. Surprised I actually got it since I have absolutely no clue about electronics. Anyway I got some Alligator jumpers and did everything Tangent describe (thanks Tan). Since I'm new at this and my soldering isn't quite up to par yet, I was wondering if its...

    Anyone subscribe to Electronic magazines?

    I am thinking of getting involved in DIY projects and from what I saw Nuts & Volts seems to have those. I'm thinking of subscribing to nuts & volts and just wanted to ask the opinion of those here who might already have it. Are there better magazines?

    I looked those and they sound nice. BUT I thought I have to get a soundcard with a built in DAC for it to sound better?

    I'm back with more questions

    Lindrone or others What do you recommend for my new soundcard? under 300 dollars or 200 oh yea I've decided to get HD600 instead so I can get a better soundcard. Thanks for the explanations

    I'm back with more questions

    So it is basically New sound card with DAC --> Perreaux SXH-1 --> MDR-cd3000 Since I will be gaming and listening to music using the cd3000 is there some way to interconnect both soundcard somehow so I don't have to get behind the case to change the plug? I guess a long Y connector connected...

    Anyone know any wireless forums? (need some help)

    I am hoping someone might know an auction site or trade site that is similar to something like this site that deals with wireless equipment. Here's a short boring story. I live in a small town and for a while we didn't have any kind of broadband internet. A wireless company opened here and so...

    Recommendations Please (Lots of Info provided :D)

    Thanks for the info. Thats what I though but I wasn't sure. now those with high impedenance ie. 100-300 would require amp to sound decent? I might as well shell out dough if I'm gonna do it. I swear I won't buy another one in 4 years. Darvy

    Recommendations Please (Lots of Info provided :D)

    Thanks Musiclover I might get the Sony but 380 seems a bit much. What about the 325 Grado? And will the Sony's CD3000 require an amp? or does it sound good thru the computer? or the cd3000 has a lower impendance then the Grado? Does that means I would need an amp for the Grado 325...

    Recommendations Please (Lots of Info provided :D)

    Wow thanks for the recommendations. I did not realize it would be a Sony. To be honest it probably won't matter which one I get since all my life I've been using cheap headphones. The most expensive I spent is probably a 30 dollar plantronics from radio shack. Can't wait for the new sound...
