Alpine INA-W900

The Alpine INA-W900 Head Unit(HU), is more than just a car audio system. It brings together in one unit, Satellite Navigation, CD/DVD player, AM/FM radio, iPhone/usb player, Bluetooth hands free kit, and it does it better than any HU I have ever used before. I have had a few devices that are meant to be used with the iPhone but none that have worked as well as this HU.

I have run the iPhone connection cable into my centre console, so its really easy to get to when I am in and out of the car. The phone is also paired via bluetooth, so even if I haven’t connected the iPhone, and still have it in my pocket, I am still able to use the HU for calls.

Monster Jamz In Ear Headphones

I was fortunate enough to win these in a competition and although initially I was a little disappointed,  as competition was for some Dr Dre headphones, and thats what I thought I had won. These Monster Jamz Headphones are what I had actually won. Once I got over my sadness of not owning the Dre’s (I have heard only good things about), I had a look at what I had in my hot little hands.

Alpine eX-10

I have just installed the Alpine eX-10 into my car. This unit was originally several hundred dollars but is now discontinued and can be found much cheaper. Amazon have it for $US44.95 Click here. I paid a little more as I saw it online cheap and didn’t do any research. At this price its an absolute bargain and there is nothing that comes close at the price or even at 4 times the price IMO. Display screen image

The Alpine eX-10 is a combination of devices. Its a Bluetooth handsfree kit for your mobile phone. Its an Ipod/Iphone interface for your stereo, and it is also a display for both, that can be mounted so you don’t have to take your eyes too far off the road to use it.

The Alpine eX-10 comes with a control box that can be mounted out of sight, a 2.4 inch display, that can be easily mounted to your dash. It also comes with a microphone for the hands free function, and a remote control, to drive it all. Some may wonder about using a remote control while driving, but as this remote allows you to feel your way around it with a series of bumps on the buttons, it is actually a lot safer than using the phone  or MP3 player whilst driving, as it doesn’t require you to look at the buttons. read full article here

Dynamic Phrase Synthesizer

Korg Kaossilator Dynamic Phrase Synthesizer

I picked this little marvel up about 4 weeks ago. To be honest I am still getting to grips with its capabilities but am simply stunned by its quality and power.  Sure it is easy to play and could be considered a toy with a brief encounter, but when you dig deeper its way more than that. read full article here

Ableton Live 8 and Suite 8: Create, Produce, Perform

I recently ordered this book from Amazon, as although I am getting better using Ableton Suite 8, it is a bit overwhelming as a novice user. I figured getting some outside help might make me more productive sooner. Although Ableton Live 8 is very user friendly Digital Audio Workstation(DAW), like all powerful programs their is a steep learning curve. read full article here

I picked up a new Iphone about a week ago. My contract was up and so decided to get the Iphone. I resisted the Ipod when it came out and instead bought a Sony 20 GB  MP3 player. Later I realised that due to ipods popularity, it would have been a more flexible choice. My Sony is still doing a great job, so felt no need to ditch it favour of an Ipod but when it came to phones, I decided to go with the popular choice for several reasons, and I’m glad I did. read full article here

Playstation 3

PlayStation 3 120 GB

Well after much contemplation I finally got myself a PlayStation 3. I had been tossing up between it and an Xbox 360, and finally decided the PlayStation 3 was better suited to my needs. The built in Blu-ray player was a bonus, and for my needs really just for the advantages it brings gaming(larger capacity equaling bigger more detailed games), not as a movie player. I’m not sold on the push to HD(high definition) as I have an awesome Standard definition widescreen TV(a german Loewe) that I plan to have for many more years, and I don’t see a major difference between excellent SD and average HD. I can’t afford good HD and even then, its a subtle improvement at best. read full article here

Technics SL-1200 mk2

I just got hold of my long desired Technics SL-1200 turntable . I have wanted one of these bad boys for many years. Now most people would want 2, but my desire has been for just 1. Why? well I have a DJ set up consisting of a Pioneer CDJ-200 and Denon DN-S3000 and Pioneer DJM-400 Mixer, that takes care of my DJ needs. I got theTechnics SL-1200 turntable to scratch with, for music production. Not being flush with cash I contacted my good friends down at DMC Records in Prahran, Lance and Stuart, who have looked after me with nearly all my music production gear. Now they advised me rather than buy a cheaper but new turntable, to get the industry standard Technics SL-1200 turntable used(2nd hand). I could have bought a new Pioneer or Numark deck through work, at cost, but I figured it was good advice, as the Technics SL-1200 turntable will hold its value and are a real workhorse, so should give me many many years of trouble free service. read full article here

SONY MZ-RH1 Minidisc

I bought this unit about 18 months ago, and  no doubt some will be thinking *why would anyone buy a minidisc these days?*, so I’ll explain. I also own a 20gb hdd sony NW-HD5 which I have owned for many years. I use this model(NW-HD5) because I found the ATRAC3plus 352kb lossless compression was the best at the time. I use the MW-HD5  unit as my main source of music in my car. Its like having my own radio station that just plays the music I love. read full article here
