Hi there,

I have a (Hi-Fi) CD player that is fussy about the quality of the audio CD's it will play without skipping, stalling etc.  Regular, purchased music CD's play fine, just burnt CD-R's.  The manual says they should be 8X or below. 

I've just bought an LG GE24NU40, because in the specs on the website it listed 4x, 8x and 16x, etc as supported write speeds for CD-Rs.  Now I've tried it and it seems just the same as any other drive (I've now ended up with three) in that around 14-16x is as slow as it goes even if I select 8x.  I've got some special CD-Rs that are designed for slow speed burning, but it's the same.

What does everybody else do?  Should I try looking for a really old external CD drive?  Find some special software (I can't find any)?
Is there any sites where you can tweak the firmware somehow?

I know I could just listen to the music from my computer but it doesn't sound as good, plus I don't want my computer on all the time whirring away when I'm listening to music.

Last post by RiseFall123 -
Hi,

I wonder why in the official website in the page of the components there is any VST wrapper.

I notice that there are some around, but no one is really keep updated.

What is the most stable and used "VST wrapper" plugin today with foobar?

Find the money for the measurment mic. Mow 5 lawns. Wash 10 cars. Come one man. Do it right. :)

Remeber that if you use a "App dB meter", or any dB meter as a matter of fact - it always needs to be the same distance from each speaker when you are matching levels.

The other alternative is a speaker relay. Also a bandaid of sorts, true. I never turn anything on or off without the speaker relay disconnected.

thanks. BTW this is a technology that has undergone some recent upgrades in terms of strength of materials and quality of applicator guns. Even headphones labeled universal or windows phone compatible haven't worked. The only thing that has worked is Bluetooth headphones but Bluetooth makes music sound like trash. Do I have an option for something that's actually of decent quality and has mic control. I just got to this amazing site not long ago. It’s really very nice and I will only say thanks for sharing this great information with us.View at custom essay writing service (https://www.essayguardian.com/) page if you are interesting on online essay services.

As I said, I honestly do not have even $1. I also said that I'm all for getting the best sound but unfortunately, I just don't have enough money to buy anything. And if you're asking, "Well, you have a 5.1 setup, you should have at least a bit of money to spare." Well, truth is, I don't. It'd get complicated if I explain why, but really, please just take my word for it :D

There is a memory leak in this plugin, which is very annoying as I have to constantly restart explorer.exe in order to get my memory back. It happens gradually over time after it plays a bunch of songs, and it's really noticeable when you remove and add the deskband constantly from the taskbar. Can you please fix this?

Remove album gain tags from these files.

I am not always using replaygain - only on personal compilation folders... why folders, it's easier for me to sync them with my mobile phone - but I also listen to them at home or at work. I need (hehe) a way to automatically turn it on and apply to playlist.

This closely resembles the classic Radio Shack SPL meter used by many do-it-yourself home audio calibrators (including yours truly)

It's $40 bucks.
