    What are you listening to?

    Mp3s are great because they don’t take up as much memory as a vinyl or CD, making it possible to collect an amazing amount of music on one’s hard drive. But how is the necessary memory reduced? It is done by taking out information from the original CD recording, both sonic information and mathematical redundant information. In the end about 91% of the sonic information is removed.

    What are the best sounding Simon&Garfunkul records?

    I hear you, these were the days of record companies 10 for a dollar, if you buy 3 for full price. My copy is as you say - low fi! It was for the track Bridge, that was the song on the outside grove side 2 that got the finger traffic. I did not even like any of the other tracks. To the trash bin with this record. I can get it on uTube if needed/or not. On the good side it was placed next in my collection to Supertramp Even In The Quietest Momenents . . . that made my day for Vinyl over internet! Thanks for that - the entire Supertramp was awesome. A keeper for sure!

    Help me out of the Darkness

  7. I am typing white letters on a dark grey background. Also that is my current view of other posts. However, not so long ago when I hovered over the text - the color would change to black text on a beige/creamy colored background. Is this an option? I see a button above labeled "Background Color" but I am unsure of it's application. Next to that button is "Text Color" Do these make it go back the auto changing old view? Some posters are using colors of text that make it unreadable the way it is now. If my question is not so clear I can post a screen shot of what the pages used to look like. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for your reply, and yes I got the same message before the forum upgrade.
  10. Hello I like the new site format however---- I use the latest # Firefox browser and I get a warning NOT to log in as the site is unsecured and passwords could be compromised. What is up? I can not be the only one that uses Firefox that gets this log in message. screen shot

    Blast From the Past, First Audio Setups

    My first system was tape, at that time I recorded all my friends records. This was the machine I had in 1966. A Wollensak R to R with swing out detachable "speakers".
