    Canned Jam 08

    I plan to be there. Need to make my reservations...
  2. Ah, I will second that one. Have always been a fan.
  3. This, of course, is correct. As such, my cables are now all covered in genuine Corinthian leather.
  4. The Wiggles. Again. And again...
  5. I think I may wait on the NAS device. I guess my ideal setup now is a 1TB external drive so I can backup using Time Machine and also expand my lossless storage. But I guess I'd also want to backup the external drive, so I would probably need to go with a second 1TB drive in a RAID 1 configuration? Is this easy to build myself?
  6. Are there any currently available PCDPs with optical outs? If not any NOS recommendations?
  7. What do you guys think about Network Accessible Storage devices?
  8. I do it because I am vain, shallow, AND stupid.
  9. The lawyer wants to hear about contract girl. "MSG" is pretty great. I went out with Cries All the Time Girl. No picnic.
  10. The Wiggles. Our 18-month old rules the morning TV. He also likes Pimp My Ride.
  11. ah, good. Time to sell my Tomahawk.
  12. How does the Mapletree stuff compare to Singlepower's offerings?
  13. Just saw this (posted about 3 hours ago, 11:45am NYC Time):
  14. Still down... I'm not optimistic.
  15. Very generally speaking, I think the HD 25-1 is more Grado-like in its presentation than any other Senn I have heard.
  16. One of the advantages to the Crumpler bags is that they tend to not look like a typical camera bag, which can make them less of a target for thieves.
  17. I like my Crumpler bag well enough, but I could do without the velcro enclosure, which is a pain in the ass when you are trying to be quiet. Nice bags overall, though.
  18. Helpful suggestions, thanks. Looks like maybe two external hard drives for me; one for backup (I need one for that anyway) and one for data. And, I-D, I agree about re-ripping the collection; it can be a fun process if you have enough beer. I need to think about the external music drive, do I make it a local drive or go NAS?
  19. Here's my situation. I am using my iMac as my transport, feeding either my DAC1 or (more frequently) my HR Balanced Desktop w/DAC. I use iTunes to manage my collection. Most of my collection is 256 AAC due to the fact that I used to do a lot of portable listening and I like to have my whole collection on my iPod. But recent meets have finally hammered into my head that it all starts with the source. So, I think I need to start reripping lossless. But here's the rub, I also want to keep the lossy rips for my iPod. So here are my questions: 1) Is there a way to split up the iTunes db such that I could easily flip between my lossy and lossless collections, or do I need to keep them both together? 2) My internal HD is 250 GB. How are the rest of you computer as source people storing your tunes? External HD's? 3) I know that there isn't a whole lot of love here for the DAC1, but I happen to like it. That said, I'm interested in opinions about clearly superior products in the same price range. 4) Any other suggestions about how to approach this project? Thanks all.
