  1. I've been using my onboard audio since I got my motherboard, and in the past few months I've started hearing incessant electrical noise that is driving me insane. Cannot locate the source. I was going to buy a Schiit fulla and had a chance to go use one but I was displeased with the response and overall quality of the audio when I listened on my HD 600s. I thought about buying the Schiit Magni Modi, but it's at the top end of my budget and I'm not sure if the combo is any good in the first place. Wondering what sort of recommendations y'all would have for things in this price range? I am super unfamiliar with audiophile equipment beyond headphones.
  2. That would be a downgrade from the PG279q I am currently running.
  3. Hello. I currently run an Asus PG279Q and have enjoyed it for the most part, however, it's about time I add another monitor to my setup as I am doing a complete room redecoration. New desk. New chair. New paint. New decorations. And I'd love to add a new monitor to that. I would just go and buy another PG279Q, but the uprise of new technologies has piqued my interest. Are there any good high refresh, 1440p monitors that have a high color depth? The PG279Q does the resolution, framerate very well, and the color pretty well. However, with HDR now arriving on monitors, how is the technology faring? Are monitors such as the samsung C32HG70 worth it at this point?
  4. Do they have a pair of headphones similar to this with a detachable cable? That's usually what breaks first and is definitely a deal breaker for me.
  5. Also if I were to get these, would I want the 32 Ohm, 80 ohm, or 250 ohm? Without an amp.
  6. I've been eyeing the fulla schiit 2 for a long time, though I've never had any justification to actually purchase one. My price point would be around 100
  7. I currently have a pair of Sennheiser HD439's, they're pretty good, I got them specifically for the removable cable because I had a pair of HD 429's that I really liked prior. I'm looking for newer, better headphones. I don't need a microphone, just a closed design (roommates). Sennheiser has recently released new lines of headphones and I really don't like how they look, so I'm not sure where to look for a pair of nice, closed headphones. I don't need a microphone. Price point is up to $200 Oh also I'd like them to be tight enough so that I can move my head around without them slipping, that'd be great. Not so tight that my glasses are drilled into my skull.
  8. In my quest for a new laptop I've been picky regarding the colors of the screen. Currently I use an asus PG279Q as my main display for my PC. From my understanding, this often ships near 100% sRGB coverage out of the box, not perfectly, but very close. Regarding laptop screens I've been sent to a site that details almost all the display info for a few panels. My question is: Panels that say they cover 72% of NTSC are around 100% sRGB, correct? As I understand it, sRGB=~72% NTSC. Thanks
  9. I have, I don't think a 1050 will be a comfortable GPU for me. This does look promising, though I'm not sure I would need more than a 1060, and I'm struggling to come up with reviews and information regarding the 4K touch display option offered, the color reproduction is important to me.
  10. Just gonna bump, still leaning towards a razer blade due to the 4k ips glass touchscreen display.
  11. I've never had a laptop that is thin or light, so I'm not sure. I just really want something that's small and lightweight, easy to slip into my backpack and then when I travel easy to slip into a lighter backpack. (That's why the blade appealed to me) Not sure what Max Q is, I've never followed laptops because I didn't believe in them until I started having to wait 5 minutes at the start of CS calsses for mine to turn on and load up. Edit: As much as I do hate apple, I do admire the way they design their laptops and the glass screens and such, they do give impressions of premium
  12. I've been having trouble daily driving my current laptop to class and such, so I'm looking for a thin and light gaming laptop to replace it. I travel frequently and have an internship that will require me to do a lot of traveling this summer, I'm looking for a laptop that is pretty thin and well built, that I can game on. I was looking at the Razer Blade 4k model, I hear the screen is great, and touchscreen is a plus. I may be in the minority when I say I do prefer a glossy finish for laptops for that "premium" feel (and ease of cleaning...). I've heard concerns over the Razer Blade's temps and reliability, however. Are there any laptops like it that have fewer issues? Games I would likely be playing on it: Mostly WoW; some Total War, Civ, and Battlefield 1.
  13. Thanks for this recommendation, sadly my GPU is too big. I may look into downsizing my mobo but that just sounds like a big pain in the butt as a uni student to sell my old one.
