Any of you gents know of a decent audio source selector (or heck, a basic preamp without 36,000 functions would be cool, too ) Kit, schematic, or prebuilt does not matter to me. Basically, I need to be able to take several RCA inputs and send one at a time out to a single RCA output.

I'm using a dedicated power amp in my speaker rig now but it is a hassle to switch back and forth between the CDP, 0404, and tuner depending on which I want to listen to. I had though of just using a simple 6-input selector, but apparently those can cause some nastly popping if not accompanied with proper make-before-break circuitry.

First off Id like to say Hello to everyone on overclock.net cuz this is my first (second now)post
Second of all Id like to say that as soon as i found these forums i fell in love with practically every section.
Third Id like some advice for set of good headphones for lets say 70% music listening 30% gaming. I listen to pretty much everything but right now more into Nine Inch Nails and Trance (such as Trance Around The World & A state of trance internet radio episodes) and i listen to basically every genre of music you could think of so Im looking for something that is good all around. What worries me most is muffled bass cuz a lot of people tell me alot of headphones have hard time with bass. Then again i would like really good high's as well; I know i am being a tad picky .
My price range would be up to 160$. My sound card is the Auzentech Prelude and my speakers are (i know its irrelevant) the z5500 but yea cant be thumping those past 9pm.

Thx for any replies ^^

Basically i copied this from another thread cuz i was linked to here and told to post here, so jah.

I would go for some used Sennheiser HD580's ... without looking back.

Great all arounder for music and damn respectable for gaming as well ... you'd want some sort of amp, though to get the most out of them so that might put you out of budget ... perhaps some others can suggest some easier driven cans in your range that will work with the Prelude ...

Perhaps something from the Audiotechnica family, you all?

Good luck ... you'll get a bunch more tips.

And welcome to OCN.

I guess I could join, I have a set of Pioneer SE-L40's. (As in a pair, as in one speaker for the left, one for the right, with a circular rod connecting them, sitting on my head right now.)

If anybody could find me a manual or something like that for these, or give me some info about what they'd be good to play, I'd appreciate it.

Oh, and where I could find an adapter to make the big plug into a little plug (I.E. Surround sound plug into a walkman) would be very much appreciated.

These actually aren't bad at All when it comes to bass. The highs leave a little bit to be desired, though, but not much at all.

What is it w/ old stuff? It lasts forever, I'm playing Untouched and these things are fairly loud and I hear no distortion Whatsoever! I can't hear my Vantec Tornado full blast anymore. Now it's Drop it like it's Hot and I feel like I have a subwoofer on each ear. The highs or whatever are bad in this song. Baaad.

Just found a old 1972 school campus paper in .PDF format, there's an ad for these things Ad is like 2nd or third page down. October 12th, 1972. Jeez.

@ Mconline : my suggestion would be to get some Beyerdynamic DT770 pro 80s, they're great in terms of bass, and are really rock solid performers, not to mention they're within your price range... but some other options to consider may include some ATH- A700s enclosed, with great bass, and great comfort, pretty balanced from what I hear, but no personal experience...

@ SnickieX : as far as an adapter from 1/4" to 1/8" goes u can pick on up at any local electronics shop (radioshack, circuit city, best buy, walmart, future shop, what ever) and failing that you can look around at guitar shops...

What are your views of the Sennheiser HD555 i saw the review on this site and theyre said to be pretty good but for all around what do you think? Im looking at the choices you show me they look awesome but I hear some very decent sayings everywhere about sennheiser.
