So you tag all your audio files, where do you listen to them?
On a portable hard disc player or usb stick/flash player, on your pc or where else?
What is the hardware you use (soundcard, speakers or portable)?

I listen to my music on the pc with a Aureon Sky 5.1 sound card and a set of Nubert boxes (cheapest model).
My only portable is a cheap 256MB USB stick and I put only mp3 files on it.
I also have a car radio with support for mp3 cd's.

I listen to my -q5 Vorbis files on an iRiver iMP-550 with a pair of Sennheiser PX-100 headphones.

At home, I listen to my FLAC -8 files on the computer over the on-board sound card SiS 7012 (built by Realtek) and a pair of Trust loudspeakers - sorry, I don't know the exact name, but this is what they look like:



The ones on the picture above are only 2.0, but I have the 2.1 version.

Edit: The audio player is fb2k. I also have this fancy signature which displays the currently played song as well as the position. happy.gif It's a PHP script I wrote which generates an image with help of the GD extension.

I'm listening to my --insane Musepack library on the computer with a pair of Sennheiser HD 570 over a Terratec Aureon 7.1 Space walkman.gif

I'm still waiting for any - and I really mean any - portable to support Musepack. I think I'd be the first to buy one!

I'm using foobar2000 as player and have an audioscrobbler account which calculates some nice statistics regarding my listening habits smile.gif

I output my 256kbps CBR Fraunhofer MP3's from my SoundBlaster Audigy into this badboy.... walkman.gif



My JVC Kaboom!...really, I've had no compulsion to buy any other sound system for my PC...This baby can shake the walls and pound the double bass on a Six Feet Under album so the neighbours can hear AND feel it! biggrin.gif

*edit* Yeah, I use Audioscrobbler too!

File Format: I'm mostly listenig to mp3 vbr q3 (lame). I tried to use .ogg, but then I purchased an...

Portable Device: iPod color 20GB. I'm using it less for walking around than taking it into my car and plugging it in with an mc-adapter.

PC: I plugged my built-in sound device of my asus a7n8x-board into my sony-amplifier, which is connected to two "stand-alone" loudspeakers (with about 80W I guess).

Apps: Winamp (Modern Skin, Cover&Tag Plugin), MP3Tag of course, Easy CD-DA-Extractor for converting an ripping, Sebastian's Amazon Cover Downloader and Goldwave for editing.

Utopian wishes / I'm hoping that...: (1) new explorer functions in windows vista are going to make music-libraries superfluous (2) iTunes is going to support folder.jpgs and alternative file formats.

So long

I try not to listen to music on my PC - I rip only to have music for the car through an Ipod.

My home system though is something special...

Mark Levinson 390s CD Player
Madrigal CZ-Gel interconnects (bridging Kable)
Mark Levinson 334 power amps in Bridged mode
Kimber Select Kable 3035
B & W 802D

Soon be upgrading to the new Mark Levinson 54 reference power amps when they become available.

regards
Sean

In-house I listen to FLAC only. In my car and when travelling I use an iPod with my FLAC library duplicated to MP3.

My house is filled with
Slimdevices Squeezeboxes (Image, bedrooms & kitchen), feeding
Audioengine A5's (Image) or Acoustic Energy Aego M's (Image).

My listening room has a Slimdevices Transporter (Image) feeding these ATC's (Image).

I don't like headset, out of home (I work at home) listen to the gray noise -- so I use an old Pioneer sx-626 with homemade loudspeakers (and only two, no 5.1-like tricks); usually playing from laptop, what is my portable at the same time ;) onboard audio or playing from pc through an old fashioned Terratec soundcard.

Fileformats: only ogg (q7-9 vbr), mpc, mp3 (in this order). Lossless are converted because of diskspace -- never write cd or dvd (what are so interesting in quality, has bought the original).

Progs are mostly Winamp (2.8) and Amarok; after tryed and used a couple of ripper I stand at CDex 1.5 for ripping, also for converting, and medieval cue splitter for splitting -- never editing, if a file is wrong, than wrong -> F8. I didn't find the last for clear junk data, repearing wrong headers. Tagging (after a lot of searching, trying) only with Mp3tag.

Tag (and other over-hyper-meta) data are from "manual" search only (if no cd/lp-cover at hand), always checking more sources, if available.

Controlling and monitoring with Total cmd and its lister...

For file format i'm not picky so i get whatever available. Usually Mp3 with 320KBPS or FLAC format.

My Mp3 player of choice is (and probably always be) Winamp.

My soundcard is incorporated in the Line 6 KB37 Midi interface and Keyboard:



My speaker set is the Logitech X230 2.1 system:



Whenever i want to listen without disturbing my parents i use my Pioneer SE-M390 headphones:



My portable Mp3 player is my cellphone, SE W910i:



DON'T BUY THIS PHONE, JUST TRUST ME ON THIS ONE.
