  5. Formula 1 Thread

    Fantastic race! And my compliments to ESPN for just letting the Sky programming do it's thing for the most part. I'm still loving the excellent internet video of the practices. Beautiful! No spoilers yet but there is plenty to say about what went on here!

    What all the smart iMac Pro users will be sporting this year,..

    Great article, Thanks! I know a few media composers who've taken the iMacPro plunge but for the most part, they're very well heeled. So far, they're pretty impressed with stuff like rendering speeds and large template launch, but when it comes to reading big ass sessions (with ridiculous amounts of plug-in loads like reverb) the old dust bins aren't that far behind. So, the direction that the iMac Pro has taken isn't a huge "real world" improvement for music and I'm hoping that Apple and their new modular Mac Pro will take that into account. It's great to hear that real life media composers are on staff now and that might explain the tremendous "real world" improvements that came crammed into the latest update of Logic Pro X. It may have put Logic at the top of the heap for that kind of work. BTW That was a "free" update!!!!
  9. New Oppo player for late 2012

    I bought the 205 and I've been happy with it. Their announcement was pretty surprising to me but I thought that maybe the audiophile community/echo chamber was making Oppo seem like a much more important brand than it really was. I've been following a discussion on one of the mailing lists I subscribe to and one of the guys who writes for HiFi News was saying that "the guy on the street" in the UK (and he included folks who work at places like Best Buy) have probably never even heard of Oppo. Still, I'm sad to see that a company who was producing "high value" audio gear couldn't make a go of it.
  10. Happy Birthday Doug (dsavitsk)

    Very cool Doug! You guys are doing nice work. Me, just happy when I count my fingers!
  11. March Madness

    Holy Shit! I guess the other teams can spend the off season figuring out a way to stop her.
  12. What are you listening to Part the Third

    yup,.. That's my favorite Chaconne! Have it on the Odyssey vinyl (mono).
  13. Happy Birthday Doug (dsavitsk)

    Happy Birthday Doug! I hope you get something a little more personal than a new saw blade! Enjoy the day!
  14. And now what did you do TODAY?

    Looks fantastic Adam! Moving to a new place is one of those Exciting/Exhausting things. Congrats (but don't forget to take a break sometimes)!
  15. Formula 1 Thread

    Yup, Saw all the other complaints and ESPN's apology. I'm with you Mike. We'll see how they do but after watching the online picture quality,.. Wow! Did my heart good to see McLaren make a good showing (and just having both cars finish!). Bummer about Haas though.
