How was LTX?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Somehow I didn't go to LTX and I'm like an 40 minute drive from there. Here's a screenshot of Google Maps from the central train station.

i won a free dell oem ps/2 keyboard 


|i7 3770k 1.27v 4.4GHz|GTX 1070|'C750 Multimedia Computer System'|ASUS P8Z77-V LE|4x8gb mismatched 1600MHz CAS9|

|1x WD Black (1tb)64MB Cache|Intel 520 180 GB|Samsung 850 EVO 240 GB

JBL 4412 // P-308 / M-508, who needs a sub woofer when you have an equalizer?

Legacy:

 

Spoiler

pc -> preamp -> splitter -> my 'crossover' (equalizer set to +12db on 35-200hz, twice since its a stereo one and im using it as mono), my amp

'crossover' -> amp (cheapo ebay board) -> subwoofer

Equalizer: Pioneer SG-60

eBay amp: Generic 100w with terrible traits 

 

PC -> 3.5mm to RCA -> L = Speaker Set3, R = Pre Amp -> Amp -> Speaker Set1/2

Speaker Set3 = Subwoofer (Altec Lansing VS4121 subwoofer, the amp is using the built in amp with that sub)

Speaker Set1 = 'Tweeters' (2x Panasonic SB-FS900 Surround Speakers)

Speaker Set2 = 'Mid Ranged' (Center speaker from Panasonic SB-FS900, Generic 'JS Hi-Fi Speakers'

Total: 1 subwoofer, 2 midranged, 2 tweeters

Pre Amp: Onkyo P-308

Amp: Onkyo M-508

Speaker Set2 is set to -5db using my Amp, quieter because I don't like my mids to be as loud as my highs/lows

 no more 'no buzz', it's hearable with the subwoofer. 

 

 

 

 

138 is a good number.

You expected a easter egg? No.

I'm quite surprised Linus showed off an Alienware Area 51 desktop with both of the new AMD parts in it. Although, not gonna lie, the new Area 51 looks kinda bad with that case... but that brushed silver RX Vega looked fucking sick.

From what I have seen online it didn't look that great. It looked like a bunch of 12 years olds just sitting around in a stadium while Linus showed off some stuff and like Razer had a toaster, but either than that it looked lame.

Wtf really? What the hell is a dickbutt? Also that's a bummer that Linus and Brandon had to deal with that shit, they should have done a age requirement at the event. :P

Yeah. To be clear it seemed to me like it still went well, and I would have liked to be there, but... yeah, kind of annoying.

The live video they did of a part of it looked interesting, but makes me kinda glad I didn't blow a ton of cash to go to it. Good for a day out if travel wasn't too much effort. It looked like it was small enough you have a fair chance of interacting with many of the LMG crew at some point.

I seem to like any products who have the same software and hardware maker, as long as it's not Apple. Weird. I like the Surface Book and the Pixel phones, but most definitely don't want an iPhone or another Mac (I'm not saying they're bad, though).

 

Interested in computer architecture? Still in middle or high school? P.M. me!

 

I love computer hardware and feel free to ask me anything about that (or phones) but please do not ask me anything about Networking, programming, command line stuff, or any relatively hard software stuff. I know next to nothing about that.

Easy to judge an entire event based on a couple video clips, but that's not always representative of reality. Everyone always says that "it was just 12-year-olds" wherever we go but we actually saw an incredibly wide range of people in all senses, including age.

 

Think of it this way - when I was in my teens and went to concerts, I always wanted to be as close to the front as possible. These days I'd rather relax further back and enjoy the show in a different way. It seemed like this was a pretty prevalent mindset at the show.

 

Overall I think it was a ton of fun. I was running around like a maniac trying to make sure nothing crashed and burned (too badly, it is an LTT show after all... 9_9), but everyone that I spoke with said they had a ton of fun and are looking forward to next year's event. I know I certainly am.

Sorry about that Nick, I was kind of harsh sounding, I'm sure it was great, I'm waiting to see if you guys come out with a re-cap video or something.

We had shooters on pretty much the whole day, so as long as we got enough solid footage we'll have some kind of recap or vlog. We also did some Twitter livestreams that give a pretty good idea of what the event looked like in general (from an on-site attractions perspective).

ah, so perhaps things were dropped off-screen, outside of that Vega video you released :P 

There's still hope!

As @nicklmg said, we have a ton of footage and will probably put something together ourselves, but in the interim, please enjoy this (somewhat shaky) fan video!

 

 

Also yeah, there were mainly 20-30 somethings in the audience. The couple dozen kids (bear in mind there were up to 1100 tickets available) tended to cluster together and near the front of the stage any time Linus was up there. No small percentage of those kids were dragged along by their parents, to boot!
