    She wut?

    Recently I finished putting all the music I have up for sale. Well, minus the hundred-odd CDs which aren't in the Discogs database. Still, it's a lot. I also ripped everything, including the stuff I'm keeping, onto the computer. I should listen to some of it. I wonder if my web host would mind if I uploaded my entire collection.........

    Doesn't seem like a good idea to me.

    I am about to buy a usb soundcard thingy so I can rip my vinyl onto my computer. I've been looking at the cakewalk ua-1g recently.

    I have unlimited disk space and bandwidth, so I could. I have a friend who did it on the same host without issue, but it was a much smaller collection.

    I use a Technics SL-1500, a dedicated pre-amp, and an X-Fi. I used to use the pre-amp in a Marantz receiver, but I needed that elsewhere in the house. Anyway, it's pretty fool proof. I have a couple more pieces to record, then I will sell the turntable and the pre-amp, too.

    I guess if you have unlimited, I only have like 10gigs of space and a quarter of a terrabyte of bandwidth(note:I just pulled those numbers out of my ass)

    I have a Dual CS 1257 and a Nad pp-2 preamp. I had some reasonably high end creative card a few years ago and I tried recording a gnarls barkley album, but it never quite came out as I wanted. I have read that an external card is the way to go

    I'm not an audiophile, but my setup sounds pretty solid, I think:

    Its a little quiet, at least compared to the NIN I am currently listening to.

    But yeah, sounds good. My problem wasn't so much with the quality, all the other vinyl rips I had come across were like 2x the size of mine, even encoded in the same Flac 5. I thought I was doing something wrong.

    Yeah, I record at a medium volume. I used to boost it, but was never happy with the end result.

    music on computers is overrated. What ever happened to cd walkmans? I used one until a couple of years ago until it broke. I need to buy a record player. I got radioheads new shit in the mail the other day, with all the special addition artwork and such. 40 bucks shipped, for thousands of man hours of effort. Now that is music.

    Oh the days of good music...

    The degradation of audio should be a sin. I may be slightly biased as I am an audio engineer. However, I really want to kick people in the teeth when they tell me to listen to how awesome something is and then plug in their ipod with a 128 audio file.

    Yes, slightly. I have way too much stuff to allow me to use FLAC for everything. I FLAC things which are really rare or really valued. Otherwise, V0.

    I sadly nerd out way to much on my audio 'toys' but it is fun to turn a good album up to CRUSH.

    I liked Shadow for sec, but kinda moved on to Kid Koala and Dan the Automator, that documentary is cool though

    Oh yeah, don't mind these guys either

    yeah buddy...kid koala is awesome and dan turns anything into gold (head auto, lovage, handsome boy, deltron, etc...)

    rode to the two ratatat remix albums another solid motivational choice (old hip hop acapella to some of the raddest beats around), i need to find some new posts to reply to ;)

    Hell yeah. Low end theory is the best sauce. Samsies with the mix sets. I have a bunch of LivePa stuff and studio/soundboard mixes from dj's i like. A couple of blogs consistantly put out good music also. Mnml Ssgs, Deathtechno, Droid Behavior. Labels that throw parties also record great sets. Pocket Underground, Moontribe, Bramble Republic. EDM, yummy!
