I don't think I have enough Gray Poupon for all of my hot dogs. What should I do?

Mix your extra Black Poupon and White Poupon at about a 60-40 ratio.

Alternatively, You could get a jar of Yellow Poupon and mix it with a jar of Chrominance-Desaturate Poupon.

There's no limit to the Poupon Possibilities if you have the 64-color set.

Nice!

Caution - re-railing.

I know what you guys mean about the micro-amp and speakers thing, but I've given that quest up for a couple reasons. First, that's not a "portable" solution, and anybody in college who is listening to not-portable music is probably streaming it through the computer (which makes the iPod integration redundant). Second, there are good values to be had on powered speakers, which is a more elegant (and probably less costly) approach than 3 boxes.

Mark won't shut up about how good his Mackies sound, and I have a friend with some Behringer powered speakers that are really nice.

So, I think that unless you have the speakers or the amp already, it just doesn't make sense.

Thanks, killjoy!

JK

I didn't say it was a good idea, just an idea. So, maybe some sort of multi-media input might work...

Actually, I can't imagine anything of reasonable value in a dorm setting anyway. Not sure how danmagician7 pulled it off without his stuff walking...

Which powered speakers are you looking at? Elegant, maybe, but flexibility is nice, too.

Well, a friend has the Behringer MS-20. They sound really pretty good nearfield at reasonable volumes. They also have 2 digital inputs (of which I think you can only use one at a time) and 2 analog inputs. They seem to be available at Amazon for about $100. The MS40's aren't much more but have a larger woofer.

Mark has some Mackies that he likes. I don't know which ones. He seems to like them and - gawd help me - I trust my brother's judgment. M-Audio also makes some inexpensive ones, but I don't really know anything about them. I am using an M-Audio adapter between my computer and BFD and it works like a charm.

The Behringer 2030A was reviewed at audioholics and did very well.

Can't forget about the KRK Rokit series.

http://www.krksys.com/product_rokit.php

These perform very well under 3rd party testing. Definitely a consideration when looking for affordable, quality near-field monitors.
