I did not even upgrade to DVD for at least 18 months. But of course there is no comparsion to Bluray with 1080 lines of resolution. I do have the player hook up to the Yamaha AVR which upconverts to 1080 and it helps some. The reason I keep it in the system, is because I have at least 60 laserdisc in my collection and I refuse to double dip and give the movie industries any more money unless the Bluray price is super low. I found Stargate and The Fifth Element for less than 10 dollars so yes I did double dip on those.
Thanks, I never got a laserdisc player and to me, just the name "laserdisc" still has some sort of high end resonance to it... I hear you about not wanting to give the movie industry more money, I am sooo mad they're holding back on releasing one of my favorite movies LOTR on bluray just so that they can sell more of the regular dvds... Of course when they do release it they'll have the theater version and a year later they'll come up with the director's cut... Oh well...
Thanks for posting in my thread. Over 100 lp's from the 80's?? It is me who wishes you lived closer...
I'm 40 and I grew up with that genre and although my collection is pretty broad, I still love music from back then. It's really, really cool that you were a DJ too, I bet you have tons of stories to tell!!
Yeah, Foobar2000 can also be configured to be used as a mixer. There are plugins for a wide variety of applications and the cool part is that they're pretty easy to install. It is indeed an amazing piece of software that developers are constantly improving. I'm still a novice when it comes to it, but I'd be happy to help in any way I can if you do decide to give it a try.
That is a pretty nice cooler that Frank recommended above. I don't know how hot the Yamaha's get, but I can put my Onkyo anytime up against a Home Depot shop heater
... I actually have 2 Onkyo receivers, the 805 and an eight or nine year old one which has been really good to me despite the heat it puts out. My 2 ch amp also runs really hot, but because my config is pretty open that is not an issue...
