    Koss Can't Be Beat! (Video)

    Saw this on the Everything Is Terrible! site. Koss Can't Be Beat! Is this for real? Yikes!

    Current amp just bit it -- Time for a new one.

    Thanks for the feedback, I'll need to get my hands on a special screwdriver to take a look at the fuse. Hopefully I won't end up having to replace this after all! If it has finally and definitely kicked the bucker, i'll check out Woo Audio.

    Current amp just bit it -- Time for a new one.

    Well essentially I was listening to it and it shut off. Can't get it to do anything now. Swapped for a different cable and changed outlets...still nothing. Haven't tried opening it yet, but I wouldn't know what to do once I got in there, anyways.

    Current amp just bit it -- Time for a new one.

    Well, after almost exactly 6 years of constant and faithful service, my Corda HA-1 MkII just bit the dust. R.I.P. So the search begins for a worthy successor to power my Sennheiser HD-650 and Grado RS-1 headphones, as well as many others. Thinking about trying tubed this time, like maybe...

    Guns N' Roses - Chinese Democracy - Buckethead

    I'm listening to this now, and was liking it just fine until I got to 'Street Of Dreams'... ARGH

    Happy Fallout 3 Day!

    Picking up my super duper extra special lunchbox edition today. Anyone else excited about playing this game today? War... War never changes.

    B grade songs you like from B grade movies.

    The entire Hardware soundtrack! (Yes, I know this is cheating.)

    Ad·ver·sary

    A buddy of mine just released his first album. It's kind of high energy, all electronic industrial-influenced stuff. Some people here might like it, and he released mp3s of the album on his site, so I figured I'd spread the word for him as a friend. The site. The mp3s, including album art.

    Good source for free Album Art?

    I uses discogs.com a lot.

    Metallica - One - any remaster ?

    There is actually a decent japanese remaster, in the form of one of their mini-LP editions (which are actually CDs, despite the name). Beefs up the bass somewhat. This is my preferred version to listen to atm. I believe it's OOP atm, but I'm pretty sure you can find them through ebay or...

    Your Favorite Nine Inch Nails Song

    Gave Up, as remixed by COIL on the Fixed EP got me into the band, so I'll stick with it.

    0404 USB and ASIO question

    I've always had this problem, as well. There doesn't seem to be a fix, and the 0404|USB is the only device this happens with (doesn't happen with 0404|PCI or Auzentech X-Fi Prelude). While I was using the 0404|USB, I basically just had to deal with it, since it persisted through several...

    help with my xfi audio settings for gaming.

    Do these different modes have much of an effect on the audio quality? I just bought the prelude to use as a gaming solution, and I was going to use my 0404|USB for listening to music, but I'm starting to wonder if I can just put the prelude in gaming mode (with Crystalizer and CMSS disabled) and...

    Cowboy Junkies - The Trinity Session

    They're supposedly re-recording this album for some anniversary release, but I can't see how they could possibly improve upon it. A real canadian classic. I pass by the church they recorded it in a lot.

    Boston lead singer Brad Delp dies at 55

    When I was a young kid, 'Long Time' (with the awesome 'Foreplay' organ intro) was probably my very first experience with Rock and Roll music. I have since moved on through other genres and artists which I enjoy far more, but I'll always remember that song quite fondly for sparking my interest...

    Joy Division remasters

    Interesting. On Amazon there are listings for remastered Joy Division albums coming out at the end of the month. Unknown Pleasures Closer Still I sure hope they turn out well!

    Does Gears of War deserve all the rave?

    The game is just a hell of a lot of fun. Co-op mode with headsets is good for a laugh, and unlocking achievements together (the Dom-specific achievements are hilarious) is just an all-around good time. Plus, Cole Train is just an awesome character in the story!

    Music videos - The Internet gold mine

    I've been going pretty nuts over Youtube, too. Seems like a good way to check out bands to see if you'll like the music. Here are some of my favourite youtube vids: Joy Division - Transmission (live, with some bonus John Cooper-Clarke) David Bowie - Heroes (live) Nine Inch Nails -...

    Looking for stuff like :wumpscut: and Rammstein..

    Back around the Bunkertor 7 album, my friends and I used to comment on how :wumpscut: sounded a lot like Leatherstrip. Specifically, the "Underneath The Laughter" album.

    Katie Jane Garside

    I'm sitting here listening to a new Katie Jane Garside album (lalleshwari - lullabies in a glass wilderness), and it's quite nice. Which is a neat trick, because I thought she was dead! Apparently I have a good 10 years of her music career to catch up on, hah!

    Sarah Maclachlan

    I'm pretty big on just about everything off of Fumbling Towards Ecstacy. There's nothing else she's done that I care for.
