    Samsung QN85A vs QN90A for desk monitor gaming display

    It looks like the 55" QN85A and QN90A are pretty similar in specs, price is only usually about $100 difference, same number of miniLED zones. It seems like the main difference is IPS vs VA. Ideally I would want something like a 43" but it doesn't look like there is anything with VRR, 120hz 4K...

    Is low level fan control gone on 30 series cards?

    I've been reading up on various 3080/3090 models, and it appears all of them seem to have the default Nvidia reference BIOS limitations of 25-30% minimum fan speed. On the 20 series (and 10 or 9 series before that) any high end card AFAIK (non-reference 2080/Super/Ti) on MSI Afterburner you...

    Acer XB321HK vs LG 32UD99

    I'm looking to pick up a used monitor to replace my dying 43" crossover 4k. I love the size but there aren't many options for direct replacement, and the Asus looks meh with VA panel. Which one would you rather have? I mostly play games, 4x games or isonetric RPGs. I'm leaning toward the LG...

    Alternative to Windows Text Scaling

    I have a 27" 1440p 144Hz monitor, Dell S2716DGR. For some reason when I set Windows text to above 100% (125%), the screen starts flickering on and off like crazy until I dial the refresh rate down to 85 hz. Now I have no issues running this at 144Hz, 120hz, or 100hz at 100% text scaling. I...

    New high-end desktop mini monitor (KEF LS-X)

    When I think of tiny monitors you could fit in the desktop, I think of some venerable models like the Dynaudio Contour SR and the Paradigm Signature S1, or the current Ascend Acoustics Luna. However, it looks like there's going to be a new competitor in this space soon, the LS-X. It's going to...

    Best Speakers 2018

    Wanted to create a parody title since we already have a best headphones 2018 thread. :D I'm looking to build a nearfield setup, to me it seems like concentric drivers is the way to go nearfield for imaging. Seating location will be approximately 2 feet away. My top candidates right now are the...

    Sennheiser HD650 successor launching (Sennheiser HD660S)

    https://en-us.sennheiser.com/headphones-audiophile-high-end-hd-660-s It's listed as available soon on Sennheiser's website. Rumor is it's a HD700 driver with a different housing and pads, and tuned for a less peaky, more neutral response. Will retail for $500.00. Makes sense with their recent...

    New Sennheiser flagship headphone incoming

    Sennheiser releasing a new amp and headphone soon. I assume based on naming it'll be an incremental improvement on the HD800S and not necessarily a TOTL headphone killer to take on Abyss Phi, HE1000v2, Focal Utopia, etc.

    Good, cost effective headphone (stat) amplifier?

    Was blown away with the MrSpeakers Ether Electrostatic Headphone at the recent Canjam. I thought (and most people there felt as well) it was better than the Stax SR-009, and certainly the new JPS Abyss Phi or the Hifiman Edition 6/Susvara. Anyone have any opinions on a good electrostatic...

    Stax will launch new flagship headphone in 2017

    https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=auto&tl=en&u=http://www.fujiya-avic.jp/blog/?p=28326 Pretty interesting, apparently Stax is launching a new flagship in 2017, along with an updated T2 electrostatic amplifier. I guess with Sennheiser refreshing it's Orpheus, Hifiman releasing...

    Hifiman Edition X for $698 on Amazon

    Looks like Audio Advisor and Electronics Expo have these on sale for $698. Quite a price drop for a headphone that was $1799 a few months ago. It will probably go up to around $1000 after the holidays. Not a cheap price by any means, but it's a pretty damn good price for a headphone that's...

    Anyone heard modded Sennheiser HD800 before?

    Has anyone actually here actually ever modded their Sennheiser HD800, either with the Anax (felt insert) mod, or the Super Dupont Resonator mod, or both? I'm so confused about the hype of these headphones. Apparently the Sennheiser HD800/S isn't even on InnerFidelity's hall of fame anymore, and...
