    Used Asus ROG Swift? I have almost identical concerns and ended up with a 1440p IPS Swift. The things IPS can do today speedwise means those of us with a desire for critical pixel performance dont have to compromise when it's time to break some heads online. Cost is still an issue though. Used market is pretty strong, but there are some deals out there.

    Music Production (Tools and Techniques)

    The Tower of Power™ is complete. Behold, if you dare. The backline is almost complete. I'm running out of room, fam!
  5. Saw the pics on Facebook. Are you kidding me? That's amazing!
  6. My dad came over and I finally convinced him to try the Oculus. Video games are from another planet as far he's concerned. I'm thinking video games was how I chose to rebel, but that's a conversation for my therapist. He's an avid hunter and plenty comfortable around guns so I fired up Gun Club VR for him. He played for 2 hours straight and refused to answer the phone when my mom called wondering where he was.
  7. You have 2(!) 4x4's filled with board games? I bet that looks amazing. Have any pics?
  8. Bottoms are Expedit, which are OOP, the top is Kallax, which is why it's a little bit smaller (though the internal dimensions are identical). I didn't install two of the Kallax dividers to make space for the components.
  9. I'm not as into soundtracks as much as you dudes, but I do enjoy me some vinyl. We recently moved and the new place has a decent room to turn into a movie/critical listening room. After unboxing and shelving everything, I am about 90% done with it. Well, maybe less since NONE of this stuff is alphabetized. I'm waiting for one of the children to screw up royally so they can do it. Until then, this is where the music media sits: I have a Pro-Ject RPM 3 Carbon with the acrylic platter upgrade, an Ortofon Black cartridge, and it all rests on a custom 2" acrylic base with LEDs. I think the biggest purpose for getting into vinyl is as an excuse to have an acrylic LED base somewhere in your stack. I go all out with the leather mat, carbon fiber brush every play, record weight puck, ZeroDust stylus cleaner every so often whether it needs it or not, you know, obsessive. This is the rest of the music (SACDs, CDs, more LPs, and Laserdiscs). Out of necessity, this room is on the second floor. I am rethinking the safety of that decision. My LP collection is BY FAR mostly classical music, quite a bit of folk, blues, jazz, and a ton of classic rock through 80s pop. Mostly stuff that isn't available on CD (especially classical and jazz). Critical listening stuff I try to get best available, be that MFSL all the way to Japanese first pressings or American thirds, whatever the consensus is. My go-to reference when I'm evaluating the sound of a system or a component is Miles Davis's Kind of Blue. I have that record on just about everything, and multiple versions per at that. It's one of my jams and I know it like I know myself.

    Happy 15th Anniversary, LCVG!

    I'm from May of 2003. Still remember the Phantasy Star Online nights with the HTF crew, then moving over to Star Wars Galaxies with many of them which coincided with the birth of this place, and of course the Wolfenstein Tournament, or The Greatest Moment in E-Sports History™ as it has become known - with Grooving, DVDSteve, Scar, Ant1, Brett, Player LUV, graph, most of the regulars here, and a bunch of names I've forgotten. #FacePasters4Life (I can't even remember what the damn team name was, but I think that was it...) 15 years isn't as long as it used to seem. Lol, Morgan.
