  1. That's good to know you can switch in/out of CD control... which is something I cannot do with the HD2500 (Midi control *or* hd2500 control - although you can flip between CD and internal devices, but not in Midi mode ) I still want an HC4500 + drawers :) Cheers, david
  2. You mean this handsome chap? http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/index.php?showuser=8842 :) Welcome back! :) Cheers, David
  3. my old Creative Soundblaster Connect USB (White thing) had Toslink In and Out as well as Line In/Out... Although discontinued... I had it directly linked to a DEQ2496 briefly... Found a PCI Card about 20 quid here: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/164495 And this external device for abotu 11 quid: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/106540 There's a few more options on ebuyer as well... Cheers, David
  4. It should work with 8Ohm speakers, just you'll only get about 270w per channel out of it, rather than 450w per channel... Manual for it is here (may not show quite the same input/outputs as yours, as it looks like an older revision with jack inputs and binding post outputs): http://www.peavey.com/media/pdf/manuals/80304316.pdf Cheers, David
  5. The Datamoons come with a switch to dim the bulb slightly which may be useful to you - its main function is to extend the bulb life - Most won't notice its a bit dimmer on laminate / parque floors... (I think i spelled that right). Ant the Last (but not last!) question - Get some higher rated speaker tripods, the speakers are over the limit and there's no point in risking it either.. Cheers, David

    13th Birthday Help

    Depending on how it goes, sometimes I finish on Amarillo (Christie / Peter Kay), or Reach (S-Club 7). Sods law you will get inundated with 101 requests and one of them is bound to be suitable for a final track... ! Cheers, David
  7. Agreed. It's also a really hard act to follow a magician! Cheers, David
  8. I've done 320k mp3 at highest quality for a while now (Exact Audio Copy and Lame MP3 encoder set to its highest quality setting at 320k - means mp3s are bigger, but still readable by the Denon). I have recently tried out FLAC format - which is a lossless format, smaller than WAV files, but should be readable by software (Traktor reads it), however hardware players may not. I wouldn't use itunes for encoding to mp3, because the encoder isn't that brilliant imho, plus I can never tell if it extracted the CD accurately (Something that EAC does - it will do a 'secure copy' and makes sure

  10. Traktor will only allow 30 mins in demo mode, before it shuts down (I can't remember its exact behaviour). It does appear to play itunes downloads as well as FLAC format (which surprised me - not sure why! :) ) Cheers David
  11. I carry up to 4 or 5 playback devices with me..... admittedly the last one has bog all on it. however it does have a couple of useful tracks in standby use:- 1) Main Laptop running Traktor + DMX s/w 2) Netbook (Also running Traktor, not as many tracks however - it is set to run and in sleep mode - set this way cos traktor takes *ages* to start up) 3) Denon HD2500 - mostly used as midi controller, but can reboot in about 15-20 seconds to get to a useable state for playing something (Its got most of what's on the laptop) 4) Sony DiscMan (?) + handful of "party" CDs... + any CDs relate
