We're going to try out a thread where we can discuss audio, video, hi-fi, etc. icon_biggrin.gif

We'll see how this evolves. Feel free to post any gear you may own, any gear worth fapping over, discuss the experience of Hi-Fi, etc. - anything you want

I feel the need for a separate subsection for hifi and audio
where audio-philes can fap together over all sorts of gear.

Right now... the discussions about tv's and audio equipement sneak into the
hard/software section. And it'd be nice to separate it.

Would it be an idea to have a subsection under
Hard/Software for discussing bigass Tv's and Audio and stuff ?

I'd certainly love it... and I know many other members who basicly
fap all day over amps and speakers and headphones.

This is a pretty nice idea, i rather like it icon_biggrin.gif

for those of you who dont own a HD-PVR... I advise you to walk out your room, walk to your car/bus and drive to somewhere that sells one.

Owning one has changed the way that I watch TV, and even my life. You may think thats sad, but think about it. How many times have you thought "oh dam im going to miss my show" or "thats on too late for me to watch FUCK YOU WORK". Well, I dont need to worry about that now icon_biggrin.gif

seriously, they are amazing. HD is nice too, but recording is where the moneys at.

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Every time someone goes against Weiman's sig I feel like they should be bludgeoned for a few minutes in the head to feel the headache I feel when I realize someone really IS that dense.

careful Weiman icon_wink.gif spend too much time talking to me about headphones, and I may convince you to buy these:



for those interested, they are called "Jecklin Floats" - theyre made by a swiss company called Precide, though theyve been discontinued for their new set of unimaginably-ugly headphones called the Ergo AMT's

But damnit, those guys look stupid enough without that.. thing on their heads icon_razz.gif

On a different note, threads like these make me happy: http://www.head-fi.o...d-mkiii-386015/

Well the other week I shelled out a paycheck and a half and bought myself a new monitor to make gaming and computer business much more enjoyable. My new baby is a Samsung SyncMaster T2200 and I'm quite amazed at not only the size, but the quality of the picture and the damn sexy-ness of the monitor itself! Here it is with my new setup:



Now I can't wait to get a new console and hook up HDMI and start gaming with that, instead of PC gaming. icon_biggrin.gif

There's a huge article over at Anandtech descriving a lot of technical issues and solutions for using a PC as a Hifi source: http://www.anandtech...doc.aspx?i=3467
It's heavy stuff to say the least... taking me a while to get through icon_razz.gif

Exactly, how dare you post in here with Skullcandies? icon_razz.gif

Also, 90% of knowing what good Hifi is consists of bashing inferior products.

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUU etc.

Well, good news is my amp got here in less then 4 days.. which is rather astounding considering it came from Hong Kong o_0


The BAD news is: one of the channel is dead. The left one in this case...
I've tried a different cable, pair of headphones, 6.3mm->3.5mm converter..but to no avail, all that's coming out of the left channel is some buzz..

As for what's visible externally, on the rear (large) tubes, there are two parts that visibally heat up, a front and a rear one. On the left tube (when facing it) the rear part seems to glow less intensely then on on the right one. However, the part that heats up on the front tube is a low more intense then the one on the right..WTF?

So yeah.. I'm just having it play music hoping it might suddenly start working out of nowhere.. I'm really not looking forward to having to ship this thing to Honk Kong.. -_-

It's a tube amplifier, and even with only one channel working it kicks ass..

That puny thing is a tube amp?

Just looks odd because the only tube amps I've seen/heard of were for guitars.
