Default Some Simple Questions?

I just received my 002r.
1)What laptop would you suggest? What ones to stay away from?
2) What are some compact studio monitors (active or passive) that you like the sound of.
3) Should I be able to hear a difference in sound from the 001 vs 002r? (I think I can, I think I can.)

Thanks

i'm sure someone much better informed can chime in on that one (ahem, Allen [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] )

2) What are some compact studio monitors (active or passive) that you like the sound of.

now, how compact are we talkin' here? are you planning on goin' real mobile with this? well, i just remembered you are asking about laptops, so i guess that's a yes.

a really nice set of speakers is the Genelec 1029. check them out!

3) Should I be able to hear a difference in sound from the 001 vs 002r? (I think I can, I think I can.)

when you say you think you can, have you already A/B'ed them?

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">1. Check the compatibility pages or the Best System for PTLE thread for a list of Digi recommended laptops. There is also a thread floating around about laptop performance now.

2. I don't use compact monitors but I like everything that Hafler www.hafler.com and Adams makes.

3. Depends on how you have it set up. If you are using outboard AD/DA converters and high end preamps there should be no difference. If you are relying on the Digi converters and pres, you should definitely hear a difference. If you don't then there is something wrong.

Good luck and enjoy,

Thanks kmshroom,I am looking to set up a mobile recording system. I sold my 001 and I believe I could hear a difference from the 001 and 002. So I didn't really a/b them.
Thanks Allen. I saw your other post. The info passed on is greatly appreciated.

Paul
