haha, well she did pick out the case for my build cause it looks like a space ship! (choosen over various slick Lian Li cases.
She did then comment that just because she liked the layout doesnt mean i have to go buy it, but then followed by
"Wife: One day you will have your 30' Monitor"
It's time to break out the Jedi mind trick
Wife: "You need to explain to me why you need this 30" monitor"
You: "I don't need to explain why I need this monitor"
You: "Go ahead and purchase this monitor. In fact get 3"
Wife: "Go ahead and purchase this monitor. In fact get 3"
Sweet case btw.
working on that, will star whispering to her while she sleeps as well
and ya, that wall of speakers rules, i am a man who still liked some nice big tall speakers, screw all this dinky little surround speaker set ups
I don't have anything quite as awesome as all that, but here's mine. It's the home office my company was generous enough to let me pay for and build myself.
I haven't gone in for the dual monitor thing, and I'm slowly going blind, so there's my P42ST30 plasma "monitor" that I just traded out the ol' A7217A CRT for.
And the games I've collected since circa 1993. (Possibly alphabetized and split by box size. *cough*)
It's good to see the OCD traits run in other [H] members
I love this room deadlift, in fact I am going to borrow a bit for my own cave
Question, what are the dimensions of that room?
I actually got these off craigslist and if I tell you the price I paid you will cry ($200). I'm not sure of the maker/model but they are very similar to these: http://www.theaterseat.com/seatcraft-argonaut-home-theater-seating/12/18What kind of chairs are those/where did you find them? That may be exactly what I need for my living room.
Anyone running a set of Paradigm Studio 20's and center has a pretty awesome Man Cave in my book.Being that I live alone my whole place is my "man cave" and I've never been much for decorating, probably because I suck at it.
Anyway, I can't really compete with some of these awesome rooms posted above but here is where I play. I apologize in advanced for the crappy shots, the only camera I have at the moment is my phone.
Living Room for movies, console gaming and light PC gaming.
For sure! I don't dare try to expand my stuff beyond the garage or basement. A Man house would be sweet. I joke with the Wife that I am going to buy the house next door when they move.Anyone running a set of Paradigm Studio 20's and center has a pretty awesome Man Cave in my book.
That the biggest issue, is while rebuilding from a 1 drive failure is the time it takes to rebuild 2T drives a 2nd drive can easily die.The highpoint card has done well. I've intentionally failed the raid, done online capacity expansion, etc. As long as two drives don't die at once, I should be all good. I wouldn't mind a 3ware 9750 and running raid6, but I didn't have the money at the time.
Snoop Dog did this.So much awesome yet still nerds
For some reason it strikes me as odd that all the "man caves" are inside a house, I would have expected someone to convert a shed into something awesome where there are no women allowed, just like when we were kids.
Or a tree house, which would be flat awesome too! .
Impressive Man cave of the day
But he doesn't beat my 5250 watts on 3 dedicated 20 amp circuits and 5 18" subs
Oh and I have 11.5 sound system (if you count the subs separate) In all honesty the Receiver only has a .2 out.
The problem with this kind of setup (Man cave of the day) is you start having locality time/shift domain issues. Your standing wave cancelation becomes nightmarish as well.
And yes I'm serious.
It cost enough. I saved a ton by building everything I could myself. I've listed everything at http://countercultured.net/pics/ht so if you really wanted to figure it out, you'd just have to add shit up.
Hahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!That is killer!!!http://img521.imageshack.us/img521/7498/realmancave.jpg
Yeah, well mine puts out 1 gigawatt to each speaker and I have 147 of them.lol j/k5250 watts is nothing. One of my amps will do 14,000 watts, and I have 4 Last I checked, that's over ten times the power you're boasting about, with eight of possibly the best 18" subs ever made.
I'm not normally one to have a pissing contest, but hey you whipped it out first.
I know that theater
