Ask the average bloke in the street about good quality audio equipment and he will harp on about Technics or Sony etc - he will never have heard of the high end stuff. A lot of it British - especially speakers with names like Mission - KEF - Tannoy - Linn etc etc.\

The average bloke in the street aint going to hand out 45.000 quid to listen to his music!!!!!!!!!!!I dont listen to audio systems - i prefer to listen to MUSIC. Anyway you are missing the point.- just tell me if at your age Codders ,you can hear the difference between 19000mhtz and 21000 mhtz? The ear aint that good. Oh by the way - that man who is in court in Swansea for taking the Halifax ( and a few others ) to the cleaners - no relation of yours I hope??????????

I DID say earlier there was plenty of decent stuff for reasonable money!!!

I wish - don't think I would have wasted 10 million on horses!!!

Of the relevant things that have been said!

Buying Pre bought MP3 files. I have a lot of CD's which I want to transfer to MP3 format. I also have a large collection of Comedy tapes which I would lso like to transfer.

I don't think I can do the tapes without inputting the source to the PC hence my request for a soundcard. Mt PC has an AC87 which i don't think much of!

Buying MP3 Files I wouldn't have a problem buying my music online. I am trying to replace two Albums that I have lost and would welcome them on MP3 does anybody know if they are available and where I could find em!

ok - if the final destination of your music is going to be mp3 then your ac87 sound card will be fine. just plug your casset player line out into the line in and use some audio recording software such as steinburg wavelab.

as far as getting hold of lost tracks are concerned you have the illegal option of downloading them from a peer to peer network or a bit torrent site. Or you can stay legal and buy most tracks on line from places like tescos or itunes for about 80p per track.

itunes have a particularly good library off stuff but the do send you the stuff as encrypted mp4 files which is great if you got an ipod but not much use for other mp3 players. you can however download some decoders and converters to make them into mp3s.

for your ripping of your existing stuff CDEX really is the best bit of kit download it from the link in my fiest post or do a google search for it.

I did - about an hour before you posted - but as i said it is not ideal as the files it downloads are protected mp4's and you need to find a decrypter / converter to convert them to mp3s - When i get some time i will find one and post a link...

But you can use iTunes to rip existing CDs as MP3s. Then you can export the files and put them on to any player you want.

Why anyone would buy a player other than an iPod is another matter though.

Aghhhhhhh get a grip.

Apple Ipods are a huge success for one reason only - MARKETING

Yes they are great players - fantastic even.

But there are loads of other great mp3 players.

http://www.creative.com/products/mp3/ for a start - these guys were making mp3 players when apple were still struggling to sell there Macs and mobile audio was just a twinkle in their R&D departments eye.
