    Office / HTPC Hybrid Rig Woes

    Switching to DivX player is giving me smooth 4k playback... is VLC not the standard these days? Still curious about the scaling... Pretty obnoxious that Spotify takes up 50% of the 65" screen real estate.

    No good options in 13-14" range

    This would be my everything machine (power user). I do game, but only TF2 so the vid card is little value to me. A machine needs some decent specs, 8GB of RAM seemed like a lot in 2005 but I think most people need more. Battery life is less of concern when compared to specs. I really like the...

    No good options in 13-14" range

    I'd like to upgrade from my Asus U31 13" but it seems like there are only bad options out there. I was looking at the new XPS13 and the X1 Carbon... XPS13 has no HDMI, only minidisplay which is nearly a full on dealbreaker for me X1 Carbon has mixed reviews, soldered on RAM... What...

    YMMV m audio av40 $49.99 best buy.

    AV40's are weak. I'm not a hardcore audophile but I like a full range sound and was very disappointed in the AV40s I got & returned to Amazon and trust me I wanted to love them. I'd go for something like Klipsch 2.1 for drastically better performance. I bought these awhile back for the workshop...

    Short and wide displays

    I'm curious if there is such a thing as short and wide displays, or horizontal wide? The reason I ask is because I want to have a side screen under my main display, but the height can only be around 10". Do I have any options... Even something 10x10 would be fine. I really can't dredge up...

    Full Range

    Hey HF I've run Rokit 5's & a 10" sub with awesome results... At my new place I had to get rid of the sub and I don't the rokits are suitable for my casual use as they are too "true" -- I'd like some bass. I'm looking into what powered monitors might have a fuller sound? I was thinking...

    DAC Options?

    I understand its not necessarily but the difference between when I plug them into my laptop (with the 3.5mm adapter) compared the receiver is NIGHT and DAY... Hardly audible at high settings because of the missing highs and lows. I assumed the soundcard couldn't "drive" them --- so it seems I...
