Burn CD-R from RAM or hard drive?
The key IME is to get a good rip to the hard drive and then burn at as slow a speed as you can stand. I use EAC to rip to the hard drive and Nero or EAC to burn. 
It's been said before, but I'll say it again...
Just to add my last 2 cents. Just put a couple ads up after not selling anything for 6 months. Wow, I can not believe the flakes. Given the rule that the smaller the price the worse the clients I was still suprised.The number of people who made of...

Kind of a mixed bag for me over the years, some great transactions some rough. On the buying side some of the nicer sellers were the ones who over rated condition or 'forgot' to mention that a product was modded or scratched. So who knows.One thin... 
iPod: Lossless vs 320 vs 192
hometheaterhifiDOTcom did a review of ipods recently, I can send you the link if you want. One of the interesting things in a side link there was how horrible the ipods measure when you apply a load (ie headphones) to the output. Funny thing was t... 
Belkin TuneFM for iPod
Depends on where you live. I had pretty good performance from the monster unit with the dock connector. The FM adapters that use the mini plug are worse. The monster unit is nice because it also charges the ipod. I would try and borrow one and see... 
dissapointing audiophile recording
Proprius: Jazz at the PawnshopChesky: New York ReunionHave to agree on these. I can forgive Pawnshop as they are just some smoes, but New York Reunion is a true bummer as on paper it should absolutely kill. It's still good, but damn chesky needed ... 
Mating with the Bryston 3B ST
At your price range I would say a Quicksilver audio pre with a set of NOS tubes and you will be in good shape. Google search Joes tube lore and read up. FYI I found Harmonic Technology Truthlink cable a good match with the 3BST.Cheers 
Seeking opinions on PMC IB2

New Doors box set
Advanced Resolution Surround and Advanced Resolution Stereo are DVD-A, on the doors box they are 24/96 but can be different bit rates.I never noticed that before about Dolby Digital and DTS. I only use stereo on my modified Denon but it does appea... 
New Doors box set
The cds surpass the DCC gold to me, and those were my favorite before this set. Hard to say about the vinly as my vinyl rig is not up to the standard of my cd player. I think if the DVDs are of no use it is probably over priced for just the CDs. T... 
New Doors box set
There was not a lot of information on this set when I got it and what it offers. Not sure what will happen in a month...any hints Nrchy ;-)It is essentially deluxe editions of all of the doors released studio albums with outtakes. Each album has a... 
Anyone heard Underwood level1 3910 mod?
forgot to recommend you search for "Joe's Tube Lore" lots of good info 
Anyone heard Underwood level1 3910 mod?
Don't trust what vendors say or their prices. The stock tubes on Parts conextion 3910 are mediocre. Try the Mullard it will be an improvement but I agree with Dennis's comments. I run a set of affordable Siemans 6Dj8 from VTS tubes in my 3910 and ... 
Speakers For Reggae Music
Live and direct....Don¬ít Check Me With No Lightweight Stuff(only reggaefied since 88) 
Improvement?
Try a used sim audio I-5 integrated...good match with totem for me. Upper end integrateds can be better than lower level seperates. Portal Panache Integrated is a good deal new or used.
