    Need 2.1 Stereo / Dac Recommendations

    Thank you so much. From what I am seeing I think the sub out is just becoming to much problem for my simple needs. Maybe Optical to Dac to CD input on the Integrated amp and take the speaker level from A to the Paradigms and from B channel to the sub speaker level input...

    Need 2.1 Stereo / Dac Recommendations

    I would like to avoid the "pay significantly more" part. Not that I am trying to be super cheap, but still its a gaming pc I listen to music on :)

    Need 2.1 Stereo / Dac Recommendations

    This is really just for computer audio but the gear leans more toward this crowd, so I thought I would ask here as well. I have decided to go with a older integrated amp (onkyo, sansui, kenwood, technincs etc: etc: ) looking for ones with pre out - main in connections so I can have more...

    Need a Stereo/DAC recommendation

    I have decided to go with a older integrated amp (onkyo, sansui, kenwood, technincs etc: etc: ) looking for ones with pre out - main in connections so I can have more options on subwoofer hook up. I found a Techincs SU-V98 local I can get pretty cheap...

    Neither of those got very good reviews. Unless the looks of those cases is more important to you than cooling I would not get either of those. Case looks are so subjective though. What some people love other think is flat out fugly. I tend to narrow down my choices then watch a ton of reviews...

    Lian Li 011 Dynamic Razer Edition case fan attachment

    Not very noisy at all. I am running 7 of the deepcool fans which even at max speed they are only 27 dba but they spend a large majority of the time @600 rpm. The other 3 are the Corsair ML120's on the rad which with a 360 rad they dont ever spin up very fast.

    Fan Orientation and Ugliness.

    Been using the deepcool aio's in a couple builds for a couple years with no issues at all. The one you linked to is the captain series and the early versions of that model did have a few issues, but they resolved them pretty quick. Also just put another Deepcool in the a new build I just...

    Need an amp. New little one or a "vintage" receiver?

    My setup is a Harman Kardon 10" 200 watt powered sub and pair of Paradigm Atom v.5 speakers. Currently being driven by a old harman kardon AVR144 (40 watt x 2) receiver which I have grown to hate in just the 2 days of trying it. So I have started the quest to acquire something I will hate...

    Hoping somebody knows these brands M&K vs Paradigm

    Got a Harman Kardon 10" 200 watt for a pretty decent price. At least cheap enough that if I dont like it I wont feel bad upgrading down the line. Thank you for all the advice and input from you and the others, I really appreciate it.

    Hoping somebody knows these brands M&K vs Paradigm

    Trying to follow your advice and get a sub. I ran across a Paradigm pdr-8 v4 for 50 bucks. Do you think an 8" would be big enough or should i keep looking for a 10-12?

    I am not sure which way to go and was about to drive people nuts with yet another thread 😃 I am not sure which would be the "better" way to go. I would like to be in the sub $200 range for an amp. But not sure if i should pick up a little dac and then an old stereo (like a 90's technics...

    Thank you so much. Ended up with the Paradigms for 50 bucks. They sounded really good hooked up to my HT AVR. Now I just need to find a integrated amp with optical in for my computer :)

    Asking for computer but since this equipment is mainly for home theater I am hoping somebody on this sub will know the answer :) Looking at going away from my klipsch 2.1 and thought I would start with bookshelf speakers and then down the whole rabbit hole of amp, sub and dac. Anyhow I am...

    X570 advise please.

    Finding any X570 boards in stock right now is going to be your problem. I would say the same as above, go with what you like. However with the current Gigabyte master power on issue I would avoid that brand until they get it fixed...

    Thanks, thats the thing I love about RGB. It can be what ever color I want or feel like. Not a big fan of lots of flashing lights dancing to music and such, but its handy to just say "I want it orange today" :)

    Hmmmm, I dont know why they would not ship it to your area. They ship the case though. I bought mine from their webstore and they shipped it to me. Be very careful of that corsair case and watch some youtube reviews of it first. I was also looking at that case when I bought the lian li and...

    Suggestions - 2.1 Systems under $200

    Love my Promedia's, actually just come across another set and am going to run a 2.1 (X 2). You can get them on FB Marketplace pretty often. My neighbor just sold a set on the marketplace for $50.00, seemed about the average around here.

    Lian Li 011 Dynamic Razer Edition case fan attachment

    OK thought I would check since we are running the same card on the same riser on a board with the same chipset in a case that is almost identical :) Still working on mine though, hope to be done next week.

    3900X with stock cooler - fan speeds up about once a minute while doing Lightroom

    I am glad he didnt. I learned something today about a build I am still building. Now I know what to do after I install windows and before I even bother installing lightroom. I wouldn't have bothered doing a search for it but when I saw the title I looked in on it and learned something, isnt...

    Will a DAC help a non audiophile ?

    Since I am building a new computer and am going to try a couple different sound set ups, starting with dual klipsch promedia sets. Would it help at all to put a optical connection from the mobo to a DAC (maybe Modi 3) then a splitter to the 2 klipsch? I game and listen to music only with...

    Have you tried the newest bios ? I am running the x570 Strix-e with the same GPU and set it to gen 3 in the top pcie slot with no problems. Also running a Pcie to M.2 adapter in slot 2 with no issues, although I have it set auto in the bios. But since I just got the board it came with the...

    I think I am going to cry

    Not really, I dont feel as if I am missing anything by not knowing who or what a hwbot is. Do you think motherboard makers should spend extra money on every motherboard for a obsolete feature that only a very small fraction of the people use? If you built and sold cars would you install a 20...

    I think I am going to cry

    Yes the high end mechanical keyboards maybe, but you are still talking a very very small fraction of computer users would have any use for that connection. No sense spending an extra dollar on every motherboard for the .0003 percent that would use that feature. I am shocked any would have that...

    Really depends on how many and what type of headers your mobo comes with. My Asus X570 Strix-e Has two 12 volt (4 pin) RGB headers and two 5 volt (3 Pin) Addressable RGB headers. But yes if you had 2 headers you could run 10 fans easy. You just have to make sure you get the mobo to match the...

    It will hold 3 ssd's on the back panel that covers the wiring area. Then you have a couple options for more then that depending on your fan/rad setup. The 3 panels on the front right of the case are also ssd mounts. You can mount 3 on the front or back of each of them. But you would not be able...

    I think I am going to cry

    LOL PS2 is kind of limiting you. Surprised mobo makers are still wasting money by even installing them on a board. Agree with the wifi though. I dislike even having it on the board even though its turned off in the bios. But to get all the options on the board I wanted it was a wifi only race.

    Asus Maximus Hero VII has no RGB Header...

    The white ring led's that only show white would be easy and just use the same power that goes to the fan. However you have no control over them, they are on when the fan is on and off when the fan is off. If you want the RGB fans there are a lot of choices out there that come with their own...

    I think I am going to cry

    It's called supply and demand, not gouging. You are not talking basic necessities of life here like food and fuel oil. Its something totally optional and frivolous. If you think its to high and your being gouged dont buy it, take its demand away and the price will come back down.
  39. scoobert

    I think I am going to cry

    To be fair its not really price gouging. They do the same exact thing amazon does. If you buy from Newegg you get their price and shipping. If they dont have it in stock you have an option of buying from a third party seller, just like amazon. Like currently you can get the board I bought from...

    Doing great old friend. Yeh, it went to crap shortly after becoming PCPer. We lost a lot of people and several mods during the name change alone. I think I stayed on as a mod for about another year after that, then I was gone too. The place just wasn't the same anymore. I am running the...
