We're often posting musical links to concerts, youTubes, etc., but are you forum cruisin' with a shitty phone speaker? Gargantuan gigantic marshals powered by Telefunken EL34's...or somewhere in between?

This desktop Internet cruiser also doubles as a secondary music library for the house and uses either $60 Bluetooth headphones that actually sound pretty good, or feeds a small pair of wooden 1970's "Criterion 50" bookshelf cabinets that I got for $10 at goodwill, ripped the crappy speakers out, and put in fairly decent 2 ways with some LC crossovers so they sound pretty good for a small investment. The computer has pretty much every LP (as mp3's), CD, and download I've bought since about Lumpy Gravy :)

How do you hear us?

I “cruise the forum” with my phone (an iPhone 6s). I have Xfinity for my cable service which includes YouTube. I have a pretty good Sonos soundbar for the tv so I can listen to a lot of internet stuff on that. The tv stuff is less than four months old as I finally got settled after the fire. It’s the best tv I’ve ever had so I’m enjoying that. I’ve also got a Blu-ray, dvd, CD player hooked up to it that I listen to all my music on. I also have a small Sony stereo ($160.00) that I bought immediately after the fire so I’d have something to listen to. I rarely use that anymore but sometimes it seems like a good idea for some reason. I also like listening to music a lot in the car. That’s it.

so yeah, i have to manipulate the level of insertion to keep things sounding decent.

never ear buds.
too sharp audibly and sharpened pencil directly in the earsly.

I use my home computer to do the on-line thing. (don't own, nor ever even used, a cell phone)
For sound, Sony Extra Bass Headphones (MDRXB550AP/R), Red.
