I simply don't know how anyone could use a single monitor (excluding ultra wide screens) anymore, it just feels so limiting.

Multi monitor with Windows virtual desktops is just the best thing ever.
Yeah...I can't ever go back to a single display anymore. Perhaps I can work with a large 4k screen...but a single 1080p or 1440p monitor is not something I can work with. I need a secondary display.

It's the good 'old BGMicro 2x20 VFD that went on sale a long time back, running VFD Thinger that was written by a HardForum member :)
Use it as a clock + news + WinAmp display

Here's an old thread :

I pulled my old UV system out and turned it on this weekend and the LIS POP is still working like a champ.

Hey magnetik - like the cat on the chair. I guess we know who the boss is...

I got him figured out..just throw them damn temptations wherever I want him to go for a few minutes and it works out for the both of us.

Wow, I remember your original setup from my early years as a lurker on [H]. Are those Samsung monitors or TVs?

Home office update: I wanted to buy an HDR ultrawide, but seeing they're going to cost north of $1000 and I refuse to pay that much for a screen, I'm keeping my 40" 4K TV for now. I had this feeling that hanging the TV on the wall would be a good idea: the second I turned it on, my hunch was instantly confirmed. I'm very satisfied with the change.

I like to see moroe VR headsets being apart of people setup. Am not seeing too many right now.

I hope that will change in the coming years.

As you wish ;)

Also pay attention to the VR sensors and cable management solution in the ceiling:

And if VR feels too new and fancy, there are other options:

Whoa, two Stackers?

Yes. :D One is for the desktop, the other is for my home server. It was the biggest box I was able to find at the time and I was so happy with it that I got a second one as well. (y) Enough room for expansion for anything: a big stack of HDDs for the server or water cooling for the desktop (though I've been happy enough with air cooling to not have bothered with the hassle - I used to have Zalman's Reserator 1). The only disadvantage of its size is when you have to carry it to a LAN party. :LOL:

My sound setup is KEF R500, KEF R200c, KEF R100*, Elac SUB 2070, Denon AVR-X3300W. Additionally I have Sennheiser HD 650 headphones and sE Electronics USB2200a microphone.

* Two for surround and two for zone 2 in other rooms (mono).

Nice! I'm a KEF guy, too, though my setup is quite a bit more modest. For my computer, I'm running a pair of LS50 bookshelf speakers, SVS SB-2000 sub, Schiit Gungnir Multibit DAC, and Crown XLS 2502 amp. I'm getting a new desk and will post a pic here as soon as everything is ready.

The monitor is 30"....I went from 20"/24"/20" (non wide)-(wide)-(non-wide) to this. Might be time for a 43"!
