    My 8 year old loves my modded 580s

    Great looking headphones. I'm loving that everything is black. I've been tempted to paint the HD580 headband black to make everything black but it looks like I can just use a beyer dt770 headband to complete the black look. That is a dt770 headband, right?

    Headphone amp for around 50 bucks

    Check out the huge portable amp review thread. However most will be out of your budget. A few will be in your budget and a used Mini^3 will be the best one.

    Alessandro MS2i retailers... where?

    I believe Alessandro is the only authorized dealer of the Alessandro series. However you can try the FS section for a used pair. I know Headphonic sells it also but I never purchased from there.

    Best Ripper For Non-Expert

    I haven't used EAC in a very long time but it is the most accurate of all the rippers you listed. I don't know easy it would be to set it up to rip into FLAC because I ripped my CDs to mp3.

    Problems with Winamp and Foobar & G15 ??

    For foobar, you have to go to Preferences -> General -> Keyboard Shortcuts to configure your keyboard keys to work with foobar. Since you want control over foobar when it is minimized or not the top window, then you have to check the "Global Hotkey" option.

    I finally understand the awesomeness of Grado headphones.

    You have to break-in the bowls before it becomes comfortable. Many people wash them (I don't know what they wash it with) or just let it break-in over time with use. I didn't wash my bowl pads, instead I just wore them and let the oil from my ears soften up the pads.
