Computer Audio Hot Deals


Fully [H]
Sep 6, 2002
Hi all,

I thought it would be an ok idea to reserve this space for [H]ot audio deals and for items you saw in the FS/FT section.
The audio community can help by sharing deals where it'll get noticed by those most interested :)

A few qualifiers/disqualifiers

- No pimping your own hardware, though linking FS/FT threads is ok as long as it's audio related (and not your own!)
- No auction links & No links to personal auctions. Ebay "buy it now" & ebay merchant links are fine.
- The general rules of our [H]ot deals and FS/FT forum's will apply.
- Please include a short description of the item you are posting.

Share your audio-deals, deal hunting tips and user feedback with us!
Some basic deal hunting tips

- Crosscheck all your prices @ before actually buying.
- Verify the validity of those merchants @
- Try to purchase from merchants with a higher resellerating rating, such as 8.0 and above.

Any other good places to crosscheck audio prices? Post away or PM me and i'll try to organize em all here ;)

Thx for looking into it Psycho, responded to your post in the [H] deals discussion thread ;)

Edit: Looks like [H] member pxc may have solved the mystery:

It may not be a c-media chip after all.
