  1. Every time I think of Marvin or play his music I can't help but think of the gigantic tragedy that was his life. First he lost his amazingly talented singing duet partner Tammi Terrell to brain cancer at the tender age of 24. Then losing his own life by getting shot in the head by his own father. These things are supposed to happen.

    Some things are simply silly, some ridiculous, the HFT's go beyond that to escape definition. They are like a experiment in "let's see how gullible some in the audiophile community really are, and how big a monkey we can make out of them." Can anyone, anywhere, provide some verifiable, scientific evidence these devices have any audible effects? BLAH
  3. Go to PCLinuxOS.com and create a bootable DVD or thumbdrive Boot the CD and use Control Centerv- Local Discs to format the drive to format to whatever filesystem you chose. I know it sounds scary but it is all GUI based - point and click usable. Go to the forums and ask someone to walk you thru it. http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/ When all done you might even dump Windoz
  4. I was hoping the pricing would have been a little lower to put a notch in Tital's US market. Maybe if Spotify ever gets on board the competition may drive prices down some.

    Same results here! I ripped my life's entire vinyl collection to flac files on my hard drive in preparation for my retirement and move to small digs in FL. Every bit of that "vinyl texture" is immediately audible during each playback, all the surface noise, pops, ticks, mono'd bass, etc; are reproduced in perfect digital sound forever.

    In who's opinion? If it's your system then your opinion is all that matters. But that has little to nothing to do with reproducing what the engineer heard and what he hoped you would be able to recreate. YMMV

    Not sure I can agree on the logic behind these two posts. But once again we fall back to the ideal between designing a system for accuracy or tuning to a personal preference. IMHO I believe the journey should begin with a path that leads to the most accurate, transparent package the builder can accomplish A system most capable of reproducing that which the artist and producer intended. After that tuning to a preference is a piece of cake.

    Chris, I'm extremly jealous, congratulations. One question, when you open those doors does your soundstage deepen?

    Many prefer other high distortion links in their playback chain. There's no accounting for taste.
