The Day ... The Music ... Died.

Tuesday, April 7, 2009
Sigh. I am at a loss.

Any one that knows me knows that I can't get through my day without being able to crank up a set of speakers and rock out (usually in the morning while in the shower ... it just wakes me up - what can I say?) ...

The last couple of days my speaker system as been acting up - not playing audio, popping, squealing and other strange noises emitting from the speakers as my tunes played on. Thinking nothing of it, I just let it be.

Last night my wonderful iPod speaker system let out the screech of death. The noise it made was horrible .. between it and my screaming I'm sure next door was wondering what was going on. Figuring that maybe it was just cranky I unplugged it all, let it sit, then plugged it all back together, said a little prayer to the technology gods and crossed my fingers. Yet again, the screech of death (and I didn't even have the iPod plugged into the system yet). Bummed out at not being able to listen to tunes while reading last night, I left it.

This morning. Same thing. Screech of death mixed in with static of unimaginable proportions. Sigh.It is dead (although power still runs through it just fine, no smoking ... just the screech of death). And now I'm music-less (it's just not the same listening to tunes through earphones all the time).

No idea what is to blame for its demise .. other than perhaps it experienced one too many brown-outs which might have caused something internal to fry ... i dunno.

I think you need to perform an exorcism on it!

HAHA - that might just happen tonight.

Thankfully, it is still under warranty so when I get south for the summer I can run up to Futureshop and trade it in for either the same model if in stock or the next one up :-)

thats a long time without music - my ipod keeled on me twice this year.. so I have either listen to my computer or cd's....

I think its fixable, but I haven't had a chance to work on it

Yeah, most things are fixable ... just not while living in the North... unless you count tinfoil and crazy glue as fixing stuff things. I just hope that it isn't the end for my speakers ... I need my speakers! :-)
