My Pioneer 1500's broke on Saturday and so Im in the hunt for a new pair. I was less than enamored by them anyway.

Im leaning toward the HD 25-1 II at the moment. I know this is a regular thread but just wondering what you lot are favoring at the moment.

I recently purchased as pair of Sennheiser HD8's. These are the first pair of Sennheisers that I have ever owned and I am very happy with them. 10/10 from me.

Anyone tried out the NI Traktor Kontrol S5 or S8? The S8 looks like it could genuinely replace a mid-range 4-chan mixer. 4 line level or phono inputs along with the 4 virtual traktor decks, STEMS mixing, etc.

I've played around with the s8 - it's got pretty lights and packs a lot of stuff into a relatively small unit however a lot of folks don't like the lack of pitch faders/jogwheels.

The whole thing syncs back to a master clock, so why would you need jogwheels? I mean, if all you need to do in nudge a track, the strip thing is there and I can't imagine that if your music was beatgridded properly that you'd ever need more than that, no?

I know sync is a dirty word, but I think I don't care anymore. If I want, I can play vinyl all night without a problem - I think gadgets like the S8 could be really fun creatively. Now they just need to get more people making music in that STEMS format.

Scratch DJs would need proper jogs to make all that horrible noise, can't really do it so well with the touchstrip.

In case you're unaware of blend.io or splice.com, these sites will help manage this idea better than dropbox.

FF 4 seems pretty good, but downgraded back to 3 after finding out that half my add-ons don't work.

Bleep 43.

His most recent set at MoS was disappointing....and does no one like it when he plays the harder stuff no more? His never say never sets were a bit too tame for me so will probably give that next MoS date a miss.

Been with 3 for years....solid service overall, however when travelling on trains the signal drops drastically compared to my other phone [orange] that I use.  They do use an Indian call centre but they are competent bunch in my experience.

The VIP section is meh....and the view from the balcony is extremely limited.  The cloakroom queues are very long, toilets are small, drinks are expensive, and the crowd isn't the best.  Security are relatively thorough throughout the night too.

Despite all that, the immense sound system and light display makes it one of my favourite clubs.  I've also caught John 00 Fleming at MoS and it was a top night.

Always enjoyed seeing Sven live....except when he drops the odd gimmicky tune.

I never used to see what all the fuss was about with Sarah Michelle Gellar....and Britney Spears.

yes everyone's first concern is the content, but if you collect books its a different story and of course the physical feel of a book is unbeatable to that of a computer (many people might beg to differ though)

Technology is taking the fun out traditional methods: going to a bookshop, going to a record shop. People collect vinyl for over years, people collect books for over years. You find rare pieces here and there its a whole different experience.

Physically, a kindle is more comfortable to hold than a book and easier to read in bed. Turning a page is more efficient too.

I think the kindle is great...Very light, battery hardly needs charging, and the on-page dictionary is handy too.  I've got mine linked to calibre ebook software so it sends specific online news articles to the device.   Only consider getting the 3g version if you intend on regularly purchasing ebooks from the Amazon store on the move.
