The Z-5500s aren't that bad, especially if you listen through foobar2000 with wasapi output (google it for more info). I have a pretty good headphone setup, so I think I know good audio, and the Z-5500s are great for the price point.
On that note, they are $250 at amazon, free shipping. Not a...
Something else to try: I just spent some time with a vacuum and a can of air cleaning my Antec 900, it is much, much quieter now. I think something got stuck in a fan causing it to rattle for the last few years.
with foobar 2000 file management you can copy your entire library to a specified folder with whatever paths you want. you have to check file management when you install foobar2000 as it doesn't install automatically though, so you may have to reinstall foobar2000.
It really brings out the DT770s. The bass and highs are really detailed with it. I'm excited to see what it sounds like after 100 hours or so. I got it for $150ish or so from eBay.
I haven't really noticed a large difference on the Alessandros though, probably because they don't really...
My monitor is really bright. I left it at the same settings but restarted my computer and I could swear it went brighter but the colors stayed the same. MY RGB gamma settings are all 2.11, with contrast 90. brightness 25 and sharpness 50. What settings are you guys all using for DVI?
About three feet away. I have watched some videos on it though and it looks good far away, comparable to my Sharp and better than my old Dell E207WFP.
I'm still messing with the settings. I tried adjusting the gamma but couldn't get a picture I was happy with, so I left it all at 2.20. I...
The T260HD also has a 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, but the T260 and T240 have a 20,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. I personally don't use dynamic contrast, so this isn't important, but the non HD displays also don't have 16:9 support so they don't display the Xbox 360 at 1:1 pixel mapping.
It isn't really grainy, but it's just a combination of ISO 400 and a shaky hands. Also movies aren't perfect so you may see some grain there (like 300, which had grain on purpose).
Here are some more pics of COD4 on Xbox 360 over HDMI at 1080p.
Same level, but with Xbox 360 at 720p...
I didn't notice any lag on Xbox 360 after playing Gears of War and Halo 3. Since all Xbox games are at lower resolution than 720p, it upscaled pretty well. Gears of War has a lot more detail at 1080p when you sit pretty close (compared to my 42" 1080p).
I am a college freshman this fall, and because of the small dorm rooms, I was looking for an "all in one display". I'm sure many of you can imagine the difficulty in finding one, which is why models like the 32" Sharp and 37" Westinghouse are so popular. I was looking for an...
I have Z-5500s and a decent headphone setup. I never use the Z-5500s for music, as they are muddled and don't project any fine details. It's impossible to know why people spend a ton of money without hearing great speakers.
Haha I thought that too. Got a good deal on Beyerdynamic DT770s.
Then ooh! Alessandro MS-1s for $75 with bowls and comfies?! Great condition! I'll take it.
25% cashback on a Zero DAC/Amp/Pre-amp? I'll take it!

Almost all of these Apple bashing articles begin with people bashing Macs and then others disputing until eventually it is all discussed and the Mac people end it with sound arguments, analogies and logic.
I wonder if that is the goal all along... sustained page views...
