    Who sings this tune?

    Not Audioslave either, much harder again. Maybe it was an indie hour show or something. This tune was really friggin good!

    Who sings this tune?

    Nice try with Stabbing Westward, but it is much more harsh than that.

    Who sings this tune?

    I was at a party and on the radio a very loud harsh band came on the radio. The singer sounded like he was going to blow his voice. Almost at the end of the tune he was screaming "save yourself" Any ideas?

    Should I do cardio???????

    Darren, I have been think about this, I was thinking about getting a small MP3 player. But a lot of CDs I buy now have copy protection etc. I am wondering if I buy a player in a couple of months will I be able to listen to any new music I want to hear?

    Should I do cardio???????

    Thanks for the responses. I just find cardio boring, I guess I just have to tolerate it I guess. I have only been going for 20 to 25 minutes though, maybe I need to stay on a little longer.

    Should I do cardio???????

    I am 27 180lbs 5'7" People say I look skinny at 170, but the last 10 is all around my waste. I joined a gym and have been going for a few weeks. I want to get a little bigger, a lot stronger and generally look and feel better. So that means getting ride of the extra fat around the middle...

    Bowflex xtreme?

    What is Bowflex? A serious question for the skeptics. Does it have any use? Other than the obvious; to generate revenue.

    Bowflex xtreme?

    I lifted a lot about 10 years ago using only free weights. It was great, huge gains very fast in strength and size. Now it is 10 years later; I work long hours and have limited free time. I work at a large place and it has a full gym which is free for my use. In the last year I have never...

    Bowflex xtreme?

    Is anyone using this machine. I am pretty sure I am going to buy one shortly, but not 100%. I am not looking for ideas on other cheaper machines etc. Do you own a Bowflex have you used one adn what did you think? Thanks

    Balanced (XLR) connections

    Why do some preamps have balanced outs but not ins? Is there a gain from going balanced from preamp on? What not go balanced all the way from the source?

    Best way to hook up this system???

    Another question. Balanced connections, I guess these kill hooking up a sub? Also output voltage of preamps, is this a concern? The numbers seem to vary a fair bit. Does anyone look at this spec, should I?

    Buying Totems in Toronto. Prices??

    I listened to Totem Sttafs and Arros on the weekend at Bay Bloor Radio. I am totally sold on Sttafs as the speaker for me. The salesman didn't really talk price, the speakers had list price on them. He was great and I would like to give him my business if possible, however I am really stretching...

    I am going with a HT receiver instead of a pre/pro help!

    I am building a two channel system with the following: Parasound HCA 2200II Likely Totem Sttafs speakers (could still change) Adire Alignment Tempest I need a receiver with pre-outs that is cheap and sounds great. I decided I should be able to get a decent receiver and save some money...

    Receiver as preamp questions?

    Surround receiver with pre-outs etc. being considered. I want something that sounds good, wattage is no issue as the amps will never be used. Second after sound would be flexibility as a desired trait. Any adeas?

    Receiver as preamp questions?

    What happens when I use a receiver as a preamp? I am considering doing this in my new system. I want good sound for sure but receivers have features and are cheap. If a decided to go surround later it would really be cheaper! If you use a receiver this way and only use the pre-outs are the...

    Need some new artists to listen to!

    I need some new music! I listen to Dave Matthews, Matt Good, David Usher, Diana Krall, Norah Jones, Pilate etc. Please suggest something to me, I need to discover some new music!!

    Best way to hook up this system???

    Well I guess I could give that a try. The Totem Sttafs are rated down to about 39Hz. So I guess I could run them full range and just cross the sub low. It is worth a try. Going with a plate amp for the sub isn't so bad. I'll be keeping this sub forever. If/when I build another, I'll just have to...

    Best way to hook up this system???

    Ah that makes more sense. Would this not limit the overall gain avaiable to both the stereo and plate amps? Thanks for your help. I really want to put this system togeher well.

    Best way to hook up this system???

    Dave, I don't understand option 1. How does the sub get a signal in this setup?

    Best way to hook up this system???

    That Anthem looks sweet, but I was hoping to go used on the preamp. As far as running the audio to the plate amp for the crossover, I tend to wonder about the adverse affect this could have on the signal, but of course I have no experience here. It doesn't seem to me to be common to hear...

    Best way to hook up this system???

    I am putting together a system with Totem mains a 2 channel Bryston amp, probably a cheap adcom preamp/tuner and I also have a Tempest sub. I haven't bought an amp for the sub yet. What is the best way to hook this up? I confess to only ever having used Denon receivers, so of course they had a...
