    full width image slider

    I'd probably just go with something like: http://kenwheeler.github.io/slick/ or http://slidesjs.com/

    Show your computer audio set up

    Their M25 speakers sound really great. If the rest of the lineup matches that, then you've got a pretty nice setup

    Soundcard "brrrrrrrrrr" sound: Broken or fixable?

    Where exactly do you connect your stuff? Front ports or directly in the back? Are you sure, when you connect that the plugs are entirely in?
  4. No but you get a nice explanation around 5 minutes into the video of how they sound, which you can use to compare to your 558's... You can't really expect anyone to have owned both headphones at the same time, given that the ATH's are quite new. Not even owned them and written down any thoughts about them.

    What headphones are you using?

    Right now JVC HA-DX1000 when at home and JVC HA-FX700 when out or at work. I really like the JVC house sound.

    Sennheiser momentum VS Beyerdynamic DT 770

    I've owned a pair of DT770 600 Ohm and I wasn't super impressed with the sound. The treble was a bit too forward and brittle sounding. They do go very very deep in the bass. Around 25Hz was still audible! The build quality on the DT770 is very good and the comfort i decent, they might clamp a bit to begin with, but can be stretched to relieve the pressure. They are built like a tank and can survive abuse very well. I heard some people say the the DT770 LE are a bit more lively and very easy to drive, so if you go the DT770 route, they might be for you. I haven't hear the Momentum yet, so I can't tell much about those, however if you want a more portable headphone, they are most likely better in that regard. You should also consider the V-Moda M-100, Beyerdynamic T51p and B&W P7 if you want a portable headphone.

    How to tell how much battery left? (Astro A50)

    You could always modify them and build in a voltmeter to monitor the battery :-D

    YouPorn sponsoring Dota 2 or LOL team

    The contract has been drafted according to a YouPorn Twitter account: What do you think about this. Is it appropriate that a porn site is sponsoring teams for a game that a lot of teens and pre-teens play?

    I was looking if it had been posted before. I guess I didn't look deep enough. No need to get personal.

    Need help to find a good MP3 player.

    I have a Fiio X3 i bought from mp4nation.net. They sent with fedex, came two days later from China, no import taxes or nothing. I guess I was lucky. The player itself is very nice, I've bought a microSD to SD card adapter, because at the time I bought it 128 GB microSD cards were not widely available. Compared to the iPods the X3/X5 and iBasso DX50/DX90/DX100 beats them by far. There is just not enough room in them to accommodate the necessary electronics.

    Help HyperX Cloud

    The pads just stretch over the edge, pull them off gently.
  14. What was the reason they gave when they declined? What about your own insurance, does it cover? Also to be honest, if the box which is shown on the pictures contained the server I would say that it most likely was not up to the job.

    Thinking of upgrading my laptop to an SSD..

    Well then just download the Ubuntu ISO and use Rufus to create a bootable device.

    Thinking of upgrading my laptop to an SSD..

    There are loads of programs to create bootable USB. As I understand you want to be able to run Ubuntu on the USB stick and not use the USB stick as install media? Use UNetbootin to achieve that: http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/ there is even a guide in the Ubuntu Wiki: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent#Installing_Ubuntu_on_USB_drive_using_Windows

    Considering some hi-fi speakers

    Not sure how the used market is where you are, but you really can find some gems hidden in between all the shit people sell. I.e. locally I can find a very nice pair of Rega RS5 for less than half the price when they were new. Mirage, Focal, Heybrook, and many more. Maybe take a look at some used speakers in good condition, that way you will get a LOT more value for your money. Best thing would be if you could borrow then and listen to them in the room you intend to put them in. As many other posts have pointed out, the room plays a big factor in how the speakers are going to sound. If you have a lot of hard reflecting surfaces it will sound like poop. If you position the speakers wrong it will sound like poop. So there is loads to take in consideration.

    Sony MDR 1R

    Could be the drivers for your soundcard that are missing, and you are using the default one Windows finds?

    How does a CPU work?

    I had a nice course at my university where we had to implement a small computer on an Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), we got the CPU handed to us, but we had to implement all sorts of things such as IO, UART, Displays and much more. Basically the CPU is a whole bunch of logical gates, but there is of course a lot more to it. CPU's have different microarchitectures, which usually are codenamed internally, for instance Intel uses locations for names, such as Haswell, Nehalem, Ivy Bridge etc. These define how the CPU's are structured internally. Then there are instruction set architectures (ISA), where modern desktop CPU's use x86-64, these define how you communicate with the CPU. Popular ones are PowerPC, MIPS, x86, SPARC, Itanium and lately ARM has gained popularity in mobile devices. Such instruction could look like: Which tells to add stuff stored in Addr1 with the Immediate value and store it in Addr2. The CPU's internally have control units to route data, on a system bus, the correct places based on the instructions given to the CPU. Then other components such which are ALU's which basically multipy, divide and add bits. If you want to know more about Digital Design, I can recommend reading "Digital Design" by Frank Vahid. It is going to take a looong time to describe how a CPU works in detail on a forum and you won't get all the details about it.

    Heavy bass headphones

    I think you need to read this thread: http://www.head-fi.org/t/716711/the-best-bass-headphones-are-the-extreme-bass-club

    ALC892 and realtek question...

    Yeah, so you probably won't hear much difference if you don't A/B test. Sure you might hear slight differences because they probably have some minor change in components around the chip. There won't be any night and day difference that you can remember for more than 30 seconds anyway...

    O2/Dac and Noise

    Sorry I just woke up when I wrote the above. With DAC in the second paragraph I obviously meant O2, but that doesn't change the fact that he was indeed using the ODAC. There could be some noise on the USB connection, which interferes with the circuitry in the ODAC. Not sure how the ODAC filters that out. Get a third person to listen. If you don't hear it, then don't worry about it
