Friend, from Missouri


Going off the rails and purchasing some power cords to replace stock cords on DAC, phonostage, and SACD player. Jan 18, 2022

      Lots of TB: I have almost 1 TB of music on my PC. I back it up to 2 other drives. The SSDs are for OS and for apps/games.

      FWIW... AMD vs. Intel - For gaming, Intel is still king, but for productivity, Ryzen 9 3900X’s 12 cores are tough to beat.

        I just built a Ryzen 9 3900x last night. I definitely like it more than my old 7700, cooler and seems faster than anything I've ever had before. Watercooling is so much easier now.

      RE: SLI - For RDR2, my real bottleneck was my old i5 processor. The 2x 2070 Super were a good improvement over 2x 970, but Ryzen 9 = wow!

      RE: SLI - It helps with frames/sec on demanding games like RDR2, but haven’t thought about it from a bang for the buck perspective.
    5. luckybaer
      Built a new PC. Ryzen 9 3900X, 2x 2070 Super, ROG X570 E, 2x 2TB SSD, 2x 2TB HDD, 1x 3TB HDD.

        do you find the benefits of SLI to still be worth it? or is to for productivity use?

        It's especially awesome when you're overseas and need to deposit a check into your US account!

      Gungnir Multibit clicking. Assumed was Win10 USB power management. Swapped out USB cable. Clicking gone. Happiness!

      Cleaned new LP. Put it back in sleeve. Took it out to play. Looked at grooves w/ magnifier. Debris! Re-cleaned b4 playing. Sigh...

      Not sure what happened to Star Wars franchise. My son, a HUGE fan, said he has given up on Star Wars. What changed?!

        “Lando in a sexual relationship with a robot” Damn you Bill, now I HAVE to watch it.

        Agreed on Rogue One, it’s the only one of any worth. But even there only so much.

        That was in Solo, and I'd skip it.

        I went in with ZERO knowledge or exposure to DP. After a few minutes, I'm like... kinda reminds me of... Chic?! Then... noticed the Nile Rodgers credits on the album. No wonder I fell for DP/RAM so quickly!

      Ever have days where the music just sounds better than it has in a long time? Same gear, same listening area... better experience? Weird!!

        I sincerely think there are so many things that affect our enjoyment of music it can be really hard to account for them all. Could be a slight volume adjustment, less ambient noise, sinuses being clearer, a good glass of whisky etc. etc. Enjoy the music.

        Absolutely. Human are rather variable and can be influenced by good / bad days. Effects long known in the wine industry.

        Yes, music sounds very different when tired vs full of energy. Often for no obvious reason. This is why I find very fast judgments of gear always suspect. On a good day very mediocre stuff can sound awesome and vice versa.

      Had to subscribe to HD channels now that we have an HD-capable TV. Things look great! Our old TV was a dinosaur!

      Pre-ordered RedDeadRedemption2 for PC. Rollout plagued with issues. Freezes, crashes, high CPU usage, etc. Great when works, though.
