Re: Do good computer speakers exist?

Re: Now Playing

Playlist from work today and yesterday. Looking through iTunes for music i could concentrate over. Somehow ended up with mostly music from a period of my life 10 or so years ago.

Re: music magazines/journals?

I never get why people talk about other people not posting on forums on that forum instead of just making posts themselves. if you want to talk about music, go for it. i can't speak for everyone else, but even though it appears I registered here in 2008 (can that be right?), I'm still fairly new to...

Re: music magazines/journals?

So, 10 years after what's out there? I stumbled upon FÖRDÄMNING whilst ordering from Penultimate Press a couple of years ago and I've been hooked. I enjoyed it as I hadn't enjoyed any music related reading in a long time. But the last issue just came out, so I'm looking around to find what's out th...

I'd recommend buying a crate and keep it in the basement for at least 5 years. It becomes a bit brown, the bitterness disappears, and something brilliant appears.
Wow, where did you get that and what was the occasion?

Do they take themselves a wee bit too seriously?

Re: What are you drinking tonight?

Good lord! How much did that run you? Four packs usually run around $12! if you can find four packs of Bourbon County Brand Stout, buy them! They're usually 12-18 a piece here. had a Ballast Point Coconut Victory at Sea last night. It was terrible. Straight bitter chocolate and a bad artificial coc...

Re: Stereo Receivers

sorry for just participating in this discussion at the fringes as I really hate them and have had too many of them over the years, but the only other thing I will say is that it depends somewhat on the kind of music you are listening to. for instance, I listen to hip-hop nonstop on my iPod and for ...

Re: Stereo Receivers

I used to buy into this stuff, but after researching it on and off for years, as well as blind and straight up comparisons, my personal conclusion is that our minds and ears are the most devious conspirators we'll ever happen upon. Expectation bias is a VERY real thing, and there are a lot of audio...

Re: Stereo Receivers

I wish I couldn't hear the difference between high res, lossless and lossy source material, but I reliably can. I cannot not hear a difference in well constructed cables, as some claim to be able to.
