I second Jesse on the Artie Shaw version having a drive no one else has.

I like Mora's version as well, but it's a different feel.

It is a fantastic unit, but I wouldn't recomend it from mobile DJing.
I try to only use it at home. It is not very rubust. A small fall could mean the bin for it.

Anyone know of any software that supports a lot of formats like APE?
I use BPM Studio and having a lot of its features would be nice, such as:
-Dual CD-player setup with monitor channel
-Marking songs already played, and their play history
-Fadeout/Fadein control
-Easy playlist workage

very good point Lawrence. In that case, my research is pretty much null and void. So does anyone have any suggestions of a robust headset or a case to make my headphones last a bit longer through luggage?

I guess it would be fair to name the ones I've been looking at: Sony MDR-NC50 - $115 noise canceling circumaural. Skullcandy Proletariat - $100 Strongly looking at these. folds up nicely, award-winning, and well-reviewed (and very favorably so!) Sony MDR-V600 - $67 had a good pair of these but they ...

looks like I found a few models that are circumaural and sound-limiting. But they cost maybe $20 more than the types previously mentioned (which, btw, were running about the same price).

Would you pick circumaural headphones or supra-aural headphones with a noise-reduction feature?

As far as backing up original CDs losslessly I wonder if anyone just copies a disk image onto hard drives? To recover a lost CD you'd just burn the .iso (or whatever, I'm fuzzy on the terminology) to a new CD. Does that work? Is it easier? Obviously it doesn't save as much space as ripping to FLAC....
