    Music = Trance/Eurodance/Techno

    IMO Audio Technica M50 may suit your genres. Slightly above your budget only.

    Vinyl camp

    Wow, yours is one super-souped up version now! But is there a lot of DIY work involved, esp for the bearing?

    Can I confirm who carries Rega & Pro-ject in SG? I searched: Rega - Asia Sound @ Adelphi Pro-ject - House of Turntables somewhere in AMK (I thought its available in Norman Audio @ Adelphi?) I believe these 2 brands are the usual suspects for entry-level TTs? Thanks.

    Sennheiser HD25-II or Shure SRH840?

    BTW the HD25-1 ii is available in SG?

    Recommend me a set of headphones?

    How about a Sony MDR-V7506? Its way below your budget, for DJ/monitoring use, foldable, closed, rugged.

    Fake porta pros from China... =X

    if you do a search on ebay, the prices are around S$30 with free shipping from China & HK. likely fakes.

    How to post CDs in the mail?

    Hi I'm thinking of selling some used CDs locally. If I am to post it, what type of packaging should I use & where can I obtain them? Singpost? Should it be those cardboard type that can fit exactly 1 CD (or any other number)? Because I think those normal envelopes (with bubble wrap on the inside) is still not crack proof enough. Thks

    Tips for W3

    I am using W3 but had been fiddling with the various tips provided in the box. Even bought Shure Olives to try. I mainly use the provided dark grey tips (med) & Olives (small) due to better fit. Tried the grey Complys too. Somehow, when using any of the above tips, I tend to always re-adjust them while listening - to make a better seal (when I tilt my head up, sometimes the seal gets broken). Therefore I am considering whether the UM56 tips will solve this - comfort & seal. And whether it can last.
