    Nintendo Switch

    I haven't been able to crack the top 3 yet, but I'm loving the game. I definitely prefer d-pad for games like this until it REALLY picks up steam, but the hold-to-move thing gets faster at the end so it's not too bad. I can't complain too much, I've been enjoying it a lot.

    GeForce Now for the NVIDIA SHIELD is Now Free

    Been playing one of the Lego Batman games with my 4 year old on the shield in his bedroom. Performs WAY better than I expected, honestly, even over wifi. Some hiccups, but certainly not unplayable. I really should run Ethernet over to it, though.

    GeForce Now for the NVIDIA SHIELD is Now Free

    I really only use my Shield TV units as streaming media players and occasionally some of the Shield/Android games. I've been looking at emulation, but I haven't put any effort into it yet so as soon as I saw that GeForce Now was free I jumped on and checked it out. I was surprised at how well it...

    Microbes Could Turn Human Waste Into Food For Astronauts

    I'm proud of those who came before me for not making an ASS-tronaut joke.

    Microbes Could Turn Human Waste Into Food For Astronauts

    At least this is safer than eating Tide Pods. Probably.

    What driver specs to prioritize for nearfield listening?

    Ah, money, the only WAF I really have to worry about. :/ I'll read his blogs, watch his videos, and build some boxes; see what I can do without breaking open every piggy bank in the house...

    What driver specs to prioritize for nearfield listening?

    I'm super lazy and was hoping to find where I'd get my best value for effort just by dragging the stupid foam bag around, but I'd need like 7' for 40hz at a quarter wave. I guess I'll just have to put in the work for my power corners and see where it takes me. I'll just start with my suspect...

    What driver specs to prioritize for nearfield listening?

    The foam is just to see if I can get it down AT ALL. The bag itself should serve as a sort-of limp mass resonator, though it certainly isn't something I'd be able to tune. I should really just fill the volume of the room except for my listening position with foam and just listen until I die of...

    What driver specs to prioritize for nearfield listening?

    It is absolutely the room and t's only intolerable on my left speaker which goes well beyond 400ms, where the other speakers it drops below my noise floor right around 300-320ms. I tested placement of my other speakers in the same position and got the same read. Now I just need to figure out...

    What driver specs to prioritize for nearfield listening?

    Small was a necessity before we bought the house we're in now. Here, though, I've got much more space available to me. As a stop gap I've built midbass modules and they're connected to LCR via separate amps and minidsp. Calibrated with REW and a umik-1. They actually sound really nice...

    What driver specs to prioritize for nearfield listening?

    Even a "basic" DIY that's basically a glorified puzzle is fine with me. If I spend my money on any DIY project it really should be on something flat/honest and loud/sensitive for my theater room. My SVS Ultra bookshelves/center are nice and all, but sensitive they ain't.

    What driver specs to prioritize for nearfield listening?

    I'm tempted to buy one of those kits just for funsies. I don't have any place for near-field listening AT ALL, but it seems like fun.

    New 2.1 desktop setup

    I've got plenty to learn about milking the most out of my audio gear that's for sure. It seems like I've been doing more reading than listening since I started setting up my theater space in the new house. Eventually I'll be where I feel I'm using(my) end game equipment then it's just tweak...

    New 2.1 desktop setup

    High ceilings in such a tight space have been horrible for me, especially in odd rooms with lots of windows. You have more experience with it than I do, but I would probably just burn the house down and start over if I had to deal with a room anything like that again. But I'm a quitter. I'm...

    What driver specs to prioritize for nearfield listening?

    I'd probably do the same thing. Who knows where the DIY rabbit hole will end up taking you. Getting your hands dirty is always great if you've got the patience and money. At worst(unless you roll a natural 1 and die) it costs you a few bucks and some time. At best you've taken the red pill and...
