  6. It's the opinion of people who understand the science. People who don't understand the science may have a different view, but it won't change reality.
  7. LOL, there are no scientific papers about this because the whole idea is silly. There are also no scientific papers about whether astrology is true.

    SSD USB hard drive vs standard USB hard drive

    I've had an SSD fail. Unlike mechanical drives, you get no warning. One minute it's prefect, blink and it's totally and unrecoverably dead. So have a good backup strategy!

    NEED ADVICE

    The headphone amplifier you have chosen needs an analogue input, so the D/A conversion will need to be done by the PC and your PC sound card will need to have an analogue output, either a pair of RCA connectors or a mini jack. If it has a mini jack you could probably drive the headphones directly without the amplifier. For better stereo audio quality, go for something like this https://www.amazon.co.uk/FiiO-Olympus-Headphone-Amplifier-Black/dp/B00LP3AMC2/ref=sr_1_1?s=musical-instruments&ie=UTF8&qid=1551080393&sr=1-1&keywords=dac+headphone+amp Whih connects directly to a USB output from your PC and is about the same price.
  11. Ha ha, let me guess: you have only ever owned and driven cheap rubbish, but you read What Car?
  12. Yes. Before I was made to have a company car, I drove a Bentley Brooklands. Sometimes life is shit.
  13. I didn't buy it. My company gave me no choice.
