I've put together a CD of my best tracks over the last year or so... originally did it for my girlfriend (who likes electronic music - rare!) but have worked on it some more...
Being a uni bum it'd be nice to make some sort of money without having to find a proper job yet Laughing
It's got 9 tracks plus an intro and all of them merge into one another. I'll post some short samples soon. I was thinking about $16 posted?
I'm not getting a cent out of that other release so gonna try my hand on my own!

Let me know if anyone's interested Very Happy Cheers!

I was doin a lap through youtube and found this guy called Ronald Jenkees. He's a rather eccentric character, but having listened to a few of his videos, he was worth putting on here. He does some rather cool electronic music that's a bit out their to the normal stuff.

Tossing up between these two 5.1 setups one digital one analog both about the same rms and price.

http://www.sony.com.au/product/ht-ddwg700 analog

http://www.sony.com.au/product/dav-dz590k digital

Now i have always used analog amps in my car as the last time i played with digital amps the sound was crap as in no real volume and not warm just tinny.

Can anyone offer any advice on analog or digital amps for home use?

Technically I have no advice at this moment, since I have not tinkered with Digital Amps at all.

However, in my opinion, Sony as a company are a great example of "Bastard's Inc." and I would avoid anything they made at all costs.

Look into their history of trying to force adoption proprietary standards in music and hardware, secretly installing non-removeable rootkit's on peoples computers (for which they got their asses sued off), Installing ten tons of crap-ware on their laptops, the exploitive behaviour of their movies and music labels toward artists and their general tendency to do whatever it takes to try to gain advantage without any consideration of consumers or creators, and you will see why I hold this opinion.

Sorry to get all political at you in place of technical advice, but really I'd start by looking at the offerings of *any* of the other pro audio companies first and avoid supporting a crowd like them if you can.

So far been looking at price and rms and sony comes out on top at about the $500 price if you look in stores not on the site.

Hmm eather that or yammaha system.

I have to say tho i have had sony stereos in the past and have a sony tv and its been good stuff.


Analog seems to win most of the time with car audio freeks in the sounds better range but with tech allways advancing it can swing from one to another i guess.

Be exceedingly wary of RMS ratings, often they don't mean Jack, if you know what rms actualy is. Laughing

lol i went and checked out those systems both were mild in performance as were most small 5.1 systems.

I try go bye rms at least as peak power is jack and theres not much els to go bye so at least you get some idea.


Might save and get a bigger pioneer hifi system.

I admit that Sony gear is good quality electronics. Their engineers are good, its their management and strategic practices I object to.

But if you decide to go for them anyway, make sure you look past the surface gloss and make sure theres no "gotchas" hiding under the lid - My brother bought a Sony "MP3 Player" back in the pre-Ipod-0wnz-everything days.

Looked great on the surface, so just after he got it, he spent ages ripping all his CD's and downloading them into the player. Then a few weeks later, he tried to upgrade his computer.

Surprise, the included Sony ripping software had actually been ripping them into a DRM-protected variety of AAC, *and* converting any MP3's that he already had into the same format *without* actually saying that it was doing so. There was a way to force the device to play MP3's, although it took some finding, buried deep in options menu's, but the default setting was to make DRM infected AACs out of everything.

When he tried to move the library to a new computer (or device presumably), none of them would play, since they were "unauthorised copies" and we couldnt figure out any easy way to move the licenses to another machine (he was only in town for a few hours, so we didnt have time to mess with it for long). He spat the dummy at the place he bought it from, yelled at them until they accepted it for a refund, and bought a *real* MP3 player that didnt mess with your data.

That is just one of many examples of Sony-ism I have encountered over the years with their MP3 players, DVD burners, Laptops, CD's, DAT players - years ago, I bought a Sony TCD-D8 DAT machine before I knew what Sony were like, and then had to build a SCMS-Stripper gadget to remove the copy-protection bits from the Digital-Audio Stream to enable digital-to-digital copies.

Anyway, enough ranting about them, Id look at Pioneer (well regarded by DJ's), or Yamaha, or *anyone* except Sony. Smile

If you want to get some experienced opinions on the digital audio gear issue, then I have heard some good things about this forum - http://www.diyaudio.com/

Supposedly populated by people who actually build their own gear, and hence actually know an RMS Watt from a PMPO one. Probably worth looking there.
