Default Any French speakers?

I need a little assistance. I have an old Datsun 2000 that is being restored and I'm getting ready to make a decision on paint color. I found a color that I really like on an old Porsche 356 pre-A car. There is a blog dedicated to the p-car, but it's in French. Further, there is a "Contact" form too. I'm hoping someone who speaks French could send a request to the owner for the specific paint code of the car. The blog where the car is featured is: http://porsche356prea.over-blog.com/

Many thanks in advance to anyone willing to help.

I thought our speakers were made by Nokia in Sweden? Or is it Ikea?

There are French speakers being made: Pierre Etienne Leon is an audiophile manufacturer of world wide fame.

As for other French speakers, they are manufactured mostly between noon and 1400 and are referred to as "afternoon delights"...

As a good Porsche owner, I am running German Canton satellite speakers in my Home Theater:

JM Lab makes quite decent gear. Cabasse is not to be sneezed at. For amps, Jean Hiraga is a legend. Atoll is extremely good.

Default Suggestions for a DAC

Hummm... closet audiophiles abound here too.

If anyone has a suggestion for a DAC to decompress my iPod music ... when I split with ex, I left 700 cd's on the table... but copied them to iPod for dual use at the apartment and on the boat...

You can use e.g. nero software to convert mp3 back to cd...unfortunately the conversion from compressed to full size without additional information doesn't exactly improve the already diminished quality of the mp3.

Your best bet would be to start trawling usenet for *.flac audio files.
According to the RIAA it's illegal even to have copies of music you have bought, but according to the RIAA everything is illegal.

If you need assistance please PM.
