    Does such a piece of equipment exist?

    I think there are some commercial (read: non-audiophile, somewhat standard stuff) headphone amplifiers that have multiple outputs and I think have volume controls on each output. Such a device would work with line level in/out as well...

    Looking for a SUPER comfy pair of headphones

    I have tried a lot of the expensive headphones, HD650, K701, DT880/990, Grado RS-1, Denon D5000, I could go on and on. The Denon D5000 was the most comfortable. But I still prefer my Philips SHP9000. Seriously the most comfortable pair of headphones EVER MADE. The ear cushions are completely...

    Good and bad examples of cable sleeving

    I like this idea. I found an pic of it. Individually sleeved wires is a waste imo. This isn't what sleeving was made for! Wirecare has some multi-colored sleeving if you're interested though. I think the kind in the pic is carried by them.

    The clean one not so much, it was designed for shoes. You can make very strong cardboard furniture though, in this video at 1:57 there is a lady jumping up and down on a cardboard chair. First one took about a week. Second one maybe 2, I forget, wasn't as diligent. I documented the build on...

    Interference on the front panel header?

    it all depends on what's near the wires that lead from your sound card to the front panel header, if there are any loops in it (coils cause them to pick up em waves and translate them to electricity better), etc. Try shielding the wire coming from your onboard sound card front panel wires...

    Kenwood KR-V7070 audio/video thing?

    ahhhh vintage receivers. I paid $40 for my realistic STA-65C and I think even that's worth it (although in reality I expected it to be lower, horrible thrift shop). It sounds GREAT. It's in a cool looking walnut case, and has blue backlights. if you wanna learn more check out

    Post your Speaker setup PICS!!!!!!

    mebe they're the left and right surround speakers, which I hope isn't the case. I hate seeing surround speakers so close to the front, it's like a peeve of mine.

    Sennheiser PC350 - Huge price drop, any reviews?

    150? isn't it like 130 at compsource? And was $300 the msrp? No one ever sells at retail, or at least no one should :D Anyway, I don't know of any reviews, but their "g4me" line of headphones consists of their other models, but shinier and pricier (probably exactly the same, performance-wise)...

    Gravis ULTRAsound anyone. (pic)

    lol I remember this as a choice when you had to select your soundcard, it was either this or sound blaster 16, and some other things I don't remember. Man, I wish I hadn't gotten rid of my old pc D: some games just don't like XP

    I got tired of constantly duct-taping a cheap radioshack mic to my philips headphones (wasn't doing too much good for the finish either). So I utilized some cardboard and a rubber band to make a slightly better solution. Inspired by whoever did that DT770 mic mod. The mic rotates up and...

    ::Chuckles:: Monster Cables vs. Metal Coat Hangers

    why is the term "audiophile" starting to sound derogatory? D: Honestly, I do believe cables make a difference, it's just that if you have crappy RCA's connected to a crappy cable upgrading only the cable won't make much of a difference, you have to upgrade everything in path. Of course I...

    For a cmoy (and generally anything small) I think what you want is a small, conical tip. Don't give up! Keep practicing, and generally try to keep the time spent flowing solder to a minimum, make sure your iron is hot enough. Flux in a tube helps A LOT. It looks like you have a nice weller...
