beantowndog: I already ripped my CDs once.
sandbar67: What's a "CD"?
styckx: Who cares about Linux running it? What's the point except flaunting "Linux".. Linux runs embedded in a variety of shiat and has for a long ass time.. Why suddenly now it is a buzzword technology?
Bucky Katt: sandbar67: What's a "CD"?Certificate of deposit. It's a form of savings account. You can get one at any bank.

SpdrJay: Big deal .I have a UNIX powered gramophone that plays 78s and cost over 1,000,000 dollars.
GreenAdder: This is basically my retirement plan. I'm going to just get a bunch of rocks and spraypaint them all orange. Then I'm going to have some "expert" come out and write articles in a bunch of music blogs. He'll write something like, "place a GreenAdder-brand orange rock on top of each piece of equipment. It gets rid of audio thetans."Since audiophiles will pretty much buy anything as long as it's expensive and has a bunch of woo attached to it, I should have a few million dollars in no time.Just as my orange rock supply is getting depleted, I'll pay my "expert" to reach out to the blogs again. "Orange rocks are still worthwhile," he'll write, "but the new GreenAdder-brand red pinecones are the newest in warding off equalization chupacabras."
L.D. Ablo: You joke, but have you heard of Brilliant Pebbles? Look up Shakti Stones, the Clever Little Clock and Mpingo Discs, while you're at it.
L.D. Ablo: I'll out myself as an audiophile here. But I DIY my stuff and believe in science.
L.D. Ablo: If someone wants to look at the state-of-the-art, check out Linkwitz' new LX521. Not cheap, but anyone with a moderate salary can afford them. They're better than the five and six-figure stuff, too.
L.D. Ablo: Look up Shakti Stones
Reverend Monkeypants: Also also, upsampling a 44.1/16 CD to anything greater just gives you.... O nevermind.
lordargent: styckx: Who cares about Linux running it? What's the point except flaunting "Linux".It's a codphrase to linux enthusiasts that it's hackable and/or DIYable.// $4500? Ben Heck could slap one together from some spare xbox 360 parts.
More likely it's because if it ran Windows 8 it would cost $200 more.
untaken_name: Well, it's like they say, "An audiophile and his money are soon parted."
wambu: I see lot's of adjectives and superlatives on that site.
L.D. Ablo: ou joke, but have you heard of Brilliant Pebbles? Look up Shakti Stones, the Clever Little Clock and Mpingo Discs, while you're at it.
