• Do you still purchase music CD albums in store, online, or individual songs anymore?

    Best answer: I've gotten more and more away from buying physical CDs over the past couple of years. I love CDs and I have hundreds of them, but I've realized that once I create digital files and put them on my music player, I never touch the physical CD again...it just takes up space and collects dust.

    Best answer: I've gotten more and more away from buying physical CDs over the past couple of years. I love CDs and I have hundreds of them, but I've realized that once I create digital files and put them on my music player, I never touch the physical CD again...it just takes up space and collects dust. I've also almost exclusively been buying my digital music from Amazon online. It synchs seamlessly with iTunes, and has the added bonus of working smoothly with Alexa / Amazon Echo (which I also have) and I can access my entire library from any computer that's connected to the internet or phone that's connected to wi fi. It's totally comparable to iTunes and has all of iTunes' advantages, plus more; and music consistently costs less from Amazon.

  • Why do my homemade CDs play perfectly on CD players at home but skip when I play them in the car CD player?

    Best answer: Use high quality blank discs. Cheap ones often have the die layer too thin and don't give as good results. Try holding a disc up to a bright light or the sun - if you can see an obvious glow through it, it's not very good... Always burn audio discs at the lowest possible speed.

    Try holding a disc up to a bright light or the sun - if you can see an obvious glow through it, it's not very good...

    Always burn audio discs at the lowest possible speed. The "disc speed" does not matter, it's the writing speed that gives better performance. Lower speed means less "jitter".

    When playing back, a high speed computer drive may be able to track playback jitter a lot better than an audio drive that's never intended to work above "x1" speed.

    And, put a CD lens cleaning disc in the drive occasionally - the type that has one or two rows of tiny brushes and actually scrubs the lens.
    That applies to both the audio player and the drive you use to burn discs.

    I use TDK blanks specifically intended for audio recording and have not had any problem at all since I started using those.

  • Recommendation for sleeping with headphones on?

    Best answer: The problem when sleeping with earphones are two fold. Rolling over tends to knock them off and worse can strangle you with the cord. If you go to a sporting goods or gun store and buy a pair of hearing protecter headphones you'll get rid of the cords so at least you won't have the strangulation problem.... show more

Plus they're reasonably priced unlike noise cancelling headphones and they cut noise as well as ear plugs.

  • Which format is louder for music ? M4a or Mp3 320 ?

    Best answer: Neither is louder. They are audio encoding techniques. With the right software, it is possible to select the quality and volume of the music we encode ( and to change it after encoding) but the format itself (MP3/MP4 etc) does not determine the volume.

    M or MPG or MPEG all mean the same thing and are abbreviations of 'Moving Picture Experts Group', an international conference of engineers who designed standards for digital audio and video files.

    There are other standard compression formats for digital files. Some are reckoned to be better than others but, as long as we listen to our music on portable devices through headphones, audio quality is almost irrelevant.

  • Are Fender ukuleles any good? (Specifically the first generation ones from 2009/2010)?

    Best answer: They're probably as good as any mass-produced uke. Not as good as one made by a good luthier.

  • What's wrong with my stereo?

    Best answer: This happened with my portable cassette player that I bought from Shopgoodwill.com. It usually means something short-circuited, or a wire's electrical circuit "popped" in a way, as you touched upon, or exploded. This almost always means it is DANGEROUS to use the electronic equipment again, and it... show more
    Best answer: This happened with my portable cassette player that I bought from Shopgoodwill.com. It usually means something short-circuited, or a wire's electrical circuit "popped" in a way, as you touched upon, or exploded. This almost always means it is DANGEROUS to use the electronic equipment again, and it will not function unless repaired.

    As someone else mentioned, you have two choices- take it to a professional, or have it recycled safely.

    Hope this helped.

  • Subwoofer?

    I have a vizio soundboar and it has a port on the back that says sub outlet. My only question is what subs can I use with it, I’m looking for something no more than 150 and preferably on amazon. Doesn’t have to be the best quality, just good bass.
