I guess I'll post here when I get home from work, although not much... redface.gif

Edit:

My setup in-the-works

450

ASUS Xonar DX
Pioneer VSX-521-k
Infinity Primus 163's

Currently trying to find a deal on a good sub.

I also have a pair of BX5a's currently hiding in the corner I throw up as surrounds every now and then, but I don't really have anywhere to put them...

450

I'm pretty much brand new to audio, criticism (constructive... or not....tongue.gif) is appreciated.
Yes, I know my room is a mess at the moment.

I like your setup. Limited room is always a challenge.smile.gif Do you have room for a sub?

I would upload one of the files to prove you wrong but I'd get banned.

You could just post the waveforms and spectral analyzer.

I'm just saying that maybe the mastering is probably crap, so listening to a FLAC file compared to a 320 MP3 wouldn't have additional benefits.

There are a ton artists that have music that, even playing through an original CD, doesn't sound much better than a 128kbps MP3.

I could be wrong, but I'm just assuming since the majority of JB listeners probably use iPod headphone and Skullcandies.

I sure am going to make room if it's a problem tongue.gif. I might just throw it next to my desk behind my AVR. But yes my room is very small and kind of a PITA due to what's in it. I really want to get rid of that twin bed since I sleep in the other room about the same size with a king in it (and not much else).

Do whatever you want with this, too lazy to do anything else.
