  1. I've discovered something over the years: I am not average. Neil
  2. I just checked the companies website and they don't make it anymore. It's a device that hooks up to my USB port on my computer and then outputs digitally via a fiber optic or coaxial connector. It came with 30 foot runs of both wires, so I just run a coaxial line to my stereo. I'm happy with the results. Neil
  3. My computer is digitally hooked up to my stereo. There's no loss in quality and I can play any album at anytime. My iPod can control iTunes. It's so nice. Neil
  4. If they were released as lossless files I'd be thrilled. What do I do with CDs now? I buy them and then put them on the computer and never play the CD again. It's such a waste. I don't need a physical disc. I find myself much more interested in the booklets now though. Neil
  5. It's a 2 CD set, but disc 2 is the original album and other bonus cues. You might have time to hear the full score which runs 56:56 or 90:24 with the bonus cues. Neil
  6. Lately, (and this was before KOCS) "The Raiders March" has started to bore me. Superman always clicks for me, though. Neil
  7. Superman, of course. It evokes, "Truth, justice and the American way" and fully captures the spirit of a worldwide phenomenon. The Superman character existed for 40 years without this theme and yet it seems like it was always part of him, it is so entrenched in our minds. Indy is good, but Superman is great. Neil
  8. That's the nicest thing anyone's ever said about Steef. Neil
  9. It's not a knock against you. Just saying you don't obsess over music at a site devoted to a musician is a little absurd, that's all. Neil
  10. 8700 posts at JWFan.com say otherwise. Neil
  11. I want to see the version of that scene that Williams scored. Neil
  12. Could you locate the exact source on that? I'd be interested in reading that. Neil
  13. A little bit of both actually. The film mix has never sounded good to me, and there is just too much music in that movie that it annoys after awhile. The album is entertaining though. Neil
  14. I'm 100% intimidating. And to get this back on topic. The Batman album is very good, I just don't like the music as heard in the film. Neil
  15. I agree. And in fact, lossless can exceed the CD limitation of 16 bit/44.1! Neil
  16. If you re-rip you either lose quality or have a much larger file to transfer. It's more of a speed bump than a deterrent. Of course, are these opinions still valid since Apple also sells many DRM-free files that are also higher bit rate? Neil - happy with his current library
  17. On my recent trip back to New Jersey, part of my goal was to get my CDs encoded losslessly. By the time I left, I had over 400 albums done, complete with artwork. I've been slowly encoding a box set I have of everything written by Mozart. That's taking awhile. But my terabyte drive isn't even half full, and I have my entire CD collection on it now lossless. It's quite startling. I should post a picture of my drive in the "Post Your Collection" thread. Neil
  18. Suddenly, KM may have to re-consider giving this score 5 stars..... Neil
  19. You mean this? Yes. The 1979 original and 1983 "Special Longer Version" of the movie use a different take for the main titles than the album. The album is the take Jerry preferred. As there was little time to work on the film and the album, the take that Jerry preferred wound up on the album. For the 2001 Director's Edition, Jerry's preferred album take was used in the movie. Neil
