I don't think I know that feel bro. Too many artists. lol. JK, sure it's happened, but never had to rethink whether I put shuffle on..cuz I rarely do and if I do it's because I have no idea what to listen to.

haha!
For me I almost always have shuffle on, except if I'm in the "recently added" part on poweramp. So sometimes I forget to switch it back.
That said, this meme came about from WMP.
Had Shakira play twice, right after each other - and my WMP was on shuffle.
Luck of the draw? biggrin.gif

Game of odds. But really when you have artists entire discographies that span across a decade or more and 5+ albums, it's not hard for an artist to play back to back. Gonna play on shuffle and see which is the first artist to play back to back today.

That didn't take long. First two songs off the bat were Ludwig van Beethoven.

Not surprising as I have 1440 songs and 25GB worth from him alone.

3/6 were Beethoven.

2 Beethoven, 1 Lei Qiang, 1 X-Ray Dogs, 1 Crisis Core (FF7 OST) and back to Beethoven again.

Hello was curious what everyone thinks of these speakers http://www.amazon.com/Alesis-M1-Active-520-Powered/dp/B000EJTXZU. I am going to be using these as computer speaks. Looking for crisp beautiful sounds. If there is anything better for a $200 let me know. Thanks!

Go with them. Great pair of speakers, you'll be happy.



I also want to make an announcement. It's very rare that I take back an opinion I've given..I've probably done this once or twice, but I feel this correction should be made as I was very wrong. I wasn't a fan of the HD800s for the longest, always thought they were over-hyped and bright, but I didn't hear them with appropriate audio gear nor did I hear them for more than a few minutes.

I've had the chance to meet with a very famous Head-fi reviewer today that we'll call Frank. Frank has even more experience than I do with high end audio and I had the privilege of getting his insight into hi-fi headphones as well as an invitation to audition his gear at any time. Frank has access to all the best gear costing thousands of dollars. At the time of meeting he had in his possession a Burson Soloist SL, HE-6, HD800, Audio Technica ANV3000 Limited Edition and a few other headphones. While he wasn't a fan of the Audeze LCD-2 (his complaints were they fell apart and had a bunch of build quality issues) he definitely praised the HD800 for their soundstage and micro-detail. If I upgrade from my HE-500, I'm definitely going to look in the direction of the HD800.

Hey guys,

I was planning to buy some decent headphones later on in the year with a prospective rig I'm hoping to build but i'm feeling an urge to spend a little money and I thought there's no point in waiting if i'm just going to buy some anyway rolleyes.gif

I wasn't planning on including a sound card as my gaming skills don't really warrant such extravagance... With that in mind, I had intended to buy a NwAvGuy ODAC and amp combo to get away from any possible on-board issues (and also for an extra gadget! biggrin.gif).

I'd appreciate any recommendations for headphones you could give me around the £300 ($470) mark. Unfortunately our pounds don't stretch quite as far as your dollars so it might have to be a conservative price limit.

I'll hopefully use them for a bit of everything, gaming, movies and music. Music taste wise, it could be anything really although i'm most fond of folk/ indie, often female vocalists. This will be my first set of decent headphones so i'll probably be blown away with whatever I get. Comfort could be a concern as I will probably wear them for extended periods of time so opting for a head vice in pursuit of audio nirvana isn't what i'm going for.

Please let me know if you think I would benefit more from forgetting the amp/dac and spending more on the headphones. I could spend more/ less also if the performance gains are worth it or not.

Sorry if it's a bit vague, I'm a complete novice when it comes to audio and I thought this would be an excellent place to at least narrow the field a little thumb.gif
