Well, Just moved house, and the S/O and I wanted a smexy audio setup for the living room/TV room, so had to get pretty speakers, an integrated amplifier (not complaining, hegel makes great stuff) and cables. Also need to buy a TV, a 42" is just too small for the room.

And god damn aren't the speakers damn good looking, I've already seen them in person at my local RicherSounds, and the gloss rosewood is just stunning.

Must feel nice to be so rich, no hard feelings, just greener than the Hulk with envy. Either way, I find it ridiculous and funny to still ask for 20 dollar shipping on stuff that costs so much :P

Those speakers are gorgeous. 

If you're in the market for a TV I would highly suggest a LG OLED. I have the 2018/2019 LG OLED55E8. It's a 55" model. The E series would fit in nicely if you like glass. It has a glass frame on the bottom edge and all along the back. It's essentially a OLED panel with a glass backing. If you're interested in seeing close up photos from my living room and of the TV let me know. The new late 2019 models support eARC for dolby atmos passthrough from the built in TV apps, along with VRR over HDMI. Its a 120Hz panel at 4k also, mine will only do 120Hz at 1080p.

https://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-OLED65E9PUA-oled-4k-tv

You can get great discounts right now on the 2018 model if you don't need eARC, VRR, 120Hz native 4k. I've had mine since August and can't go back to any other form of TVs (Other than CRT and Plasma). If you do go down the LG OLED route I would also highly recommend getting it calibrated for SDR content. I haven't done it yet on mine, but there are a handful of professionals who offer those services.

Was looking at LG, my current TV is an LG, lasted ages, still going well. Would love to try an OLED, I think they have that model at RicherSounds if I believe.

 

And the speakers are absolutely better looking in person, the rosewood is really "smooth" looking but has nice definition, also a nice height, sound wonderful aswell from the small demo I had when they were powered with a Cambridge Audio EDGE A I believe it was.

It is silly, but the company I purchased it from must have very high costs, but it is still silly. Their headquarters are stunning. But I've purchased alot of gear from them, Including my KEF's I'm using for multi-room audio, and my main speakers.

Chicago Cubs Era 2016 World Series Champions hat.

I'm a very big baseball fan and I love caps of different team. So I decided to buy one of them.

I bought this cap on MyFitteds. It's a store in New Jersey, which I found on the Internet. I am very happy with the purchase.

The funny thing is, I've been in the computer world for a very long time, and I've never seen prices for SSDs (EDIT: I mean Storage devices)  "crash" this fast.

Not 6 months ago, the drive I paid ~30$ for was over 100$. 

I'm actually having a hard time justifying to myself upgrading again when the 512GB SSD I have is only 1/4 full, but I can't envision these prices staying down this low for long, sooner or later makers are either going to bottom out, or go bankrupt entirely...

Picked up a 9900K on sale for the holidays at Best Buy. Got it for $439.99! It went on sale to $489.99 and I had $50 off in rewards points saved up. I was thinking about going Ryzen but I mainly use my PC for gaming and my build was already on the Z390 platform. I can resell my 8700K for around $300 to $315 to recoup some of the cost too.

Decided to nab "Cola" on vinyl, I love this song, and it came with three remixes, quite expensive though.

Im more of a Ryzen person but if I was in your spot I would have done the exact same thing. Realistically if you get $300 for your 8700k than you got a 9900k for $139.99, thats stellar

Yeah it came close to me just doing a complete platform upgrade to Ryzen, but I already have a nice Z390 motherboard and my rig is 95% used for gaming.

Nothing too modern, a pair of X5670's for my Z800 workstation to replace the pair of X5570's. No real need for them but gaming with 13% CPU usage is nice. Sits at around 1% usage just browing :)

Ah, but you see, phones can't scan at 2400dpi! 

Hell, even 600dpi is a bit dubious.

I figured it was for a specific purpose, I was just poking fun. 😁
