Spin Class to Go

So, I've been really loving spin class lately. However, the timings at my gym are such that I can only go 2 times a week. I'd like to spin 3-4x a week. Can you recommend any audio workouts (podcasts, etc) that simulate a spin class experience? [more inside]

How does a tone relate to a frequency?

I have been playing around with Audacity recently trying to understand a bit more about sound in general. One question I'm having trouble wrapping my head around is: How does Tone and Frequency relate? For instance, the 2600 Hz is a high-pitched tone. Does that mean that anything that produced that same tone would be at 2600 Hz? And does it mean that for the entire range of human hearing -- all of those Hz -- that one tone corresponds to a particular frequency? I am looking for some basic explanation or even tools to play with...

Which _The Doors_ cds are considered the best?

I am confused about The Doors catalog. There are many versions. I am not sure which is the best. I know "best" is subjective. What I mean is not altered with remixing but simply the best remastered. Or if the original releases are still considered the best. I have the "Perception" set but saw a previous box from 1999 that I've read is better quality. Any input? This may be your opinion but your opinion is appreciated.

What is the screeching?

Computer/Electronic/AudiophileFilter: I just finished my first build of a computer. When I plug in my computer's onboard sound into my receiver through the standard 3.5mm audio jack and output to two KRK monitors and a sub, I get screeching/scrambling from the speakers that drives me nuts. It basically sounds like I can hear my processor. This doesn't happen with headphones. Lots more inside. [more inside]

Quality music/cinema receiver driving at least 130w for cheap?

I need a new amplifier/receiver for music and TV/home-cinema. I've looked at the Onkyo "network" range, especially entry level around £350-£400, but I am sure I could get my hands on an amp from a few years ago with all the features I desire, and save a bundle. I'd really appreciate your advice. [more inside]

Is A/V Installer a good "for now" job?

I'm going back to school in the Fall for a 2-year biomedical equipment tech degree which will hopefully lead to a decent long-term career. Yay! In the meantime (until the Fall and during the 2 years) though, I need to make some money.

Best over-ear headphones for iPhone?

I'm looking for recommendations on great over-ear headphones I can use with my iPhone. I've been using Klipsch earbuds, but they don't stay in my ear that well, and I'm concerned about hearing loss, so I'd like to keep a small distance from my sound source. I've seen in previous questions that the Sennheiser HD-280 and Sony MDR-V6 have been recommended for general use. I'm not sure about the viability of a hugely long cord for using these while walking around, however, nor do I know if the iPhone could drive these cans. I'm looking for accurate sound reproduction (no pumped-up bass, please) and comfortable wear. I'll be using them both outside and indoors, but they don't need to be sound-canceling.
