Rythmik L12 for $520 or SVS SB12-NSD for $399? 20hz and servo, or 23hz and $120 in my account? Decisions of a poor audio enthusiast. Nov 20, 2018

        Well, that servo is meant to be peachy for music.

        That amp/energiser is so tiny. Actually portable, if you are the kind of person that uses open backs around..

        @spwath I remember someone else losing their crap about the energiser, not to mention the possibility that there might be electrets in there and the box is just a transformer... it was hilarious.

        @Cspirou How bad were the Kingsounds? I keep seeing people ripping into those whenever talk of the Monoprice comes up.

      Decided to try Chuck since Zach Levi was cast in Shazam. Mind keeps repeatedly getting blown seeing Miranda Lawson in real life.

        As goofy as Chuck is I loved the show. The way the show goes gives me an interesting look on how shows get produced. Don't want to spoil it though.

      Anyone ever play with the Mirage Omnisats? I am thinking about using them as rear surrounds and hooked up to Echo Dots.

        Thanks guys. The Omnisats are a little bit bigger and go a bit lower (70hz ish). I have front and center speakers already (with a decent sub coming in the future) and was just trying to find something that might give me a little more ambiance than the normal small speakers used for surrounds.

        I can get a 5 pack for a reasonable price so was thinking of using them in the bedroom as well for background music.

        70 Hz is very sweet. I would go for it. Congratz!

      Is Rythmik servo tech worth premium over Ultimax kit? $900 vs $650 for DIY options for 15" sub capable of sub 17hz performance.

      Any recommendations for reliable, but quiet PSUs? 650W range, fully modular, and preferably under $100 (as far under as I can get :))

        @fraggler Yeah they seem to have rebranded their models. I was refering to the class of efficiency, by which they used to solely differentiate them. Gold may be sufficient too, have a look on silentpcreview.com (?).

        Dunno if it’s still the case but Seasonic used to build the Corsair PSUs, the one I tried was good but the fan had an unpleasant noise characteristic. That was a long time ago, though.

        Thanks, all. I used to have a Saeasonic way back in the day when I spent too much time on SPCR. My current Silverstone has been fantastic these last 10 years (!) With the exception of the fan failing twice. I kind of want to go back to Seasonic again.

        How much overhead do you need? Using an online calculator, my current rig could max out around 450 and my potential upgrade system would hit 550. Would a Gold or Platinum rated 650 work?

        I'm tempted to go back on $5 Tuesday just to see that scene again. Up there with seeing Yoda fight for the first time as my all time cackling-like-a-madman favorite fight scenes.

        It definitely ranks among the better Pixar films. Great comedic moments, good-to-decent action scenes, plus that soundtrack is amazing!

        For blurays, I think bluray.com and the usual A/V sites' reviews are fine. Dunno why but like somebody said here, even though most A/V sites are pretty deaf, they're not bad at reviewing the V.

        I didn't know how much comparisons were made. There are so many releases (multiple Bluray releases, Anniversary releases, 4K transfers, remasters, etc.) that it is sometimes hard to track what has changed. I have some Blurays from the early days that are starting to degrade (can actually see it on the disc), and am trying to sort through my options.

        Criterion releases are always top notch, if your movie is in their library. Bluray.com is pretty good for sussing out the various releases too. AVSforum might be worth a look too.

        Nintendo can have my money when Smash Bros comes to the Switch. Then I can feel like a kid again playing Mortal Kombat for the first time, just more kawaii...

        Check out Man of No Ego. It's not exactly bladerunner, but definitely qualifies as good spacey stuff.
