Universal to cut CD prices to between $6 and $10

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on March 18th, 2010

The music business continues its downward spiral. Universal, one of the big four record labels, is now planning to cut the prices of almost all of its CDs to between $6 and $10.

This new test is called the Velocity program. The average price for CDs has been between $10 and $12 for awhile. And if they stick to this, other labels will do the same. Great for music lovers, bad for them. Could this really make actual CDs cheaper than downloads? Are Cds even worth making anymore?

The CD player sells for $4,695. Nearly $5K gets you a CD player with a top loading mechanism. That CD playing mechanism is a Philips unit using no-bits-left behind tech. Digital processing uses a PCN1792 DAC with 14-bit/192kHz and 8x oversampling.

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on February 1st, 2010

These Hershey’s Kiss CD/DVD holders are not very practical, but they sure look delicious, even if they aren’t real. If you want CDs all over your desk, this is the way to go. Of course, before you know it, you will break down and buy some real Hersey’s Kisses. Then you can just use the real thing for the same purpose.

At that point you can mix them up and play Russian Roulette with your teeth. Choose wisely and you have a tasty treat, if you don’t you will be breaking some teeth. You should probably just by the real candy and prop up your CDs that way.

Teac LP-R550 CD RecorderLook, there’s a price to pay for liking all of grandma’s music. Like not being able to play an LP or cassette tape on your iPod. We aren’t judging ya. The classics are awesome. That’s why they’re classic.

Well here’s yet another device that will help you out and convert those LPs and cassette tapes into CD format. The Teac LP-R550 comes with a cassette tape recorder, LP disk player, and an AM/FM tuner. You can purchase the Teac LP-R550 for about $745. Which is pretty pricey. It may be cheaper just to hit iTunes and buy them all.

Alien CD rack, because UFOs have CD players

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on February 22nd, 2009

Alien CD rack, because UFOs are powered by CDsIt’s not all abducting cows and humans. Aliens love music on outdated media. This may be because UFOs are only outfitted with Cd players or it may be that UFOs actually use CDs for fuel. Who can say?

But get yourself one of these decoy alien CD racks and it will keep your CDs safe. Any thieving grey bastard who aims to steal your tunes will think another of his kind has gotten there first and head to the next house. This keeps your tunes safe and anal probes far away from you.

iLuv announces i9500 iPod sound systemiLuv offers plenty of iPod docks these days, but if you’re looking for something a bit more stylish and elaborate than the average desktop model, you’ll be happy to see the new i9500 system. It sports a cool vertical design that can handle four CDs and your iPod.

Wait, there’s more. The system will also handle SD cards and USB storage devices, and you’ll also get all the typical stereo features like AM/FM radio and alarm clock functionality. It should pump out some decent tunes, with 45W of power and a separate, somewhat subwoofer.

Aleratec launches second generation DVD/CD shredder

Posted in aleratec by Shane McGlaun on November 14th, 2008

Aleratec CD/DVD ShredderSensitive and confidential information printed from our computers and stored on out portable hard drives and flash drives gets lots of attention. We shred paper, and can encrypt electronic data on portable storage. What many overlook though is security for data stored on CDs.

When it comes time to toss that CD or DVD out that has your company’s financial info on it, you don’t want to simply throw it in the trash can where anyone who finds it can pop it into a computer can see the info. You need to destroy the CD and Aleratec has a new CD/DVD Shredder that will do just that.

Brionvega RR226 record/CD/DVD combo does the robot

Posted in music by Conner Flynn on October 16th, 2008

Brionvega RR226 record/CD/DVD combo does the robotJust look at that robot face on the Brionvega RR226. Who wouldn’t be charmed by that retro 60s ‘design? Both the RR226 and its 1965 counterpart, the Radiofonografo RR126, earned the nickname “musical component robots” due to that face, with it’s dials and speakers.

But it isn’t all about looks. Brionvega is known for creating superior decks with quality components. This one is no exception, combining a phonograph, radio, record player and a CD/DVD drive. In fact, the new model looks like a copy of the original, aside from the inclusion of the CD and DVD drive. No word on price yet, but we probably can’t afford it anyway.

Skullcandy Metallica headphones

Posted in Headphones by Conner Flynn on September 15th, 2008

Skullcandy Metallica headphonesSkullcandy and Metallica have teamed up in order to commemorate the band’s ninth studio album called Death Magnetic. Skullcandy has released special edition Metallica Hesh and Metallica Lowrider models. Great way to show your love for the the most hardcore, music download hating band ever.

“Releasing Death Magnetic is another milestone for us, as is our collaboration with Skullcandy for the Metallica headphones”, drones Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo. “This is a great opportunity for us to give our fans a new way of listening to our music.”

Listening to Metallica on headphones is a new way of listening? If you say so Bob. Expect to pay for the privilege, these headphones won’t be cheap. But if you absolutely worship the band go ahead and get yourself a pair.

Car visor plays everything, kills you dead

Car visor plays everything, kills you dead
This may be the last gadget you’ll ever buy. Both because it does everything and because it is the ultimate distraction leading to your fiery demise. At least you’ll be distracted while that tanker truck rams you. Not only can the visor play DVDs, audio and video files, it can play retro video games on its 7-inch LCD 16×9 widescreen display. Just hook up one or two gamepads that are included and you can play emulated 8-bit games. (You get several on an included disc).

It plays DVD, SVCD, VCD, DVCD, CD, CDG, CD-R and CD-RW discs, as well as digital media files stored in MP4, MP3, WMA or JPEG formats. You can even send game or movie audio to your car’s stereo thanks to a built-in FM transmitter. I’m hoping it’s only available as a passenger visor, for all of our sakes. If you’re ready to turn your car into wreckage, this will cost you just over $100.

CDs take a step backwards as 45RPM records

CDs take a step backwards as 45RPM records
Here’s a cool repurposing idea. It’s not very environmentally friendly, but it’s still awesome. You can reuse CDs as records. A guy named Aleks Kolkowski was at the UK’s Futuresonic festival last week and he brought his vintage record-cutting machine to carve sound tracks into old CDs and DVDs.

All people needed to do was bring an old disc and a sound file and he’d “overwrite” the CD with a track that can be played on a turntable. Pretty cool. Kinda pointless, sure, but it gives old turntables something to do.

Stitch CD Player is creepy, plays CDs

Stitch CD Player is creepy, plays CDs
I admit, I’m not much of a Disney fan. Even if I were, I think that having this thing on my desk would creep me out. Runat Japan just announced this CD player based on Stitch from Disney’s popular series ‘Lilo and Stitch’. Stitch’s mouth opens wide revealing the CD tray, the ears double as speakers and the teeth are the controls.

It’s got an AM/FM tuner and the onboard speakers have an output of 0.6W×2ch. Here’s a great design move: It runs on 3 D batteries, which will give you a whole hour of play. The player is a Japan only and will cost you $92.
