What to do? Buy a new motherboard and rebuild? Or wait for failure?
Ok... By choice, and because as a pro I can’t waste my youth (Although I’m quite retired from pcs as well) trying to find out what the origin of the problem was. My position is (was) simple: If windows doesn’t install correctly first time, I remov... 
What to do? Buy a new motherboard and rebuild? Or wait for failure?
Actually for some reason you took the wrong direction from the beginning to end up in a dead end with no help from level 1 donkeys of MS support...Would have been easier, after a proper backup, to boot from the CD, Not from Windows, format the dri... 
What's your definition of analog smell?
My 40y old SS  H-H SCOTT smells analogue when on for a few minutes/hours. I know this smell. Old papers/books/cardboard/ old people furniture and houses... Not great in my office when I get clients coming. I have to explain and it's embarrassing, ... 
Girlfriends and wifes, how do YOU cope?
I talked about buying this new amp... She said something like I was free to spend my money in all the junk I wanted and would be left with nothing at the end... So I didn't say anything and ordered a streamer with the amp. Then I installed them wh... 
Microphone for Youtube Recording

Can we finally put Reel to Reel out of its misery? Put it to rest people.
Last week end I offered a DAC to my Technics RS 1500 US R2R, and recorded on a brand new lpr35 some WAV and AAC out of my SSD laptop Hard drive. What an improvement! The playback is fantastic, even at 7.5. Tapes or LPs, I really enjoy listening to... 
Can we finally put Reel to Reel out of its misery? Put it to rest people.
At some point there was quite a bunch of Hi fi VCRs able to record Audio very well. They were there originally to play Hi Fi stereo pre recorded movies and sure it was a great improvement over ordinary VHS. First tape I tested through my AKG headp... 
Does a DAC completely bypass the computer soundcard
Thanks. So Today I bought a Cambridge Audio DAC Magic 100, and yes! finished the ugly compression that was ruining my laptop music. It is now dynamic, crystal clear, with a beautiful stereo image. Very pleased with the result. However, I can reall...

I didn't know some were still using cassettes… Lol! I thought they were all gone to the junkyard, where they belong. Apparently not! :D

An Audiophile is Anyone Who Loves Audio Regardless of Monetary Status. Agree?
@brettmcee, I think you’re absolutely right, I think it is all about sound reproduction. Your example of the plane taking off is the perfect illustration. As an old DJ, trained as a sound engineer who worked for most of his life in the audio/video...
