  1. Yeah except in this instance I'm paying a premium to make compromises. If I'm paying $900 for a device that I'm going to carry with me all day every day for the next 12-18 months I'm not making a compromise so Apple can make some more money licensing out Adapters and Siri compatible wireless headphones. I understand that they claim it solves some engineering problems for them, and honestly that is probably true. At the same time though this move is really not friendly to customers in any way. Either I can use an adapter, which as others have already pointed out, will likely be about as durable
  2. Chromecast Audios + Receiver and Speakers + Powered Monitors/Speakers for the rest of the house. Set up a playback group in the Chromecast app and call it a day.
  3. Depending on what your budget is you could hack together a solution. You could buy a set of powered monitors (JBL LSR305 are the go to suggestion for most here) then attach a chromecast audio to the back of each of them. The then set up the two chromecasts as a group allowing you to play to both of them. That's assuming that you want to put the speakers in opposite corners. With something like the edifiers you would have to run a cable between them. If you plan on putting both speakers in one corner I would still go for a nice set of powered monitors plus a chromecast, but that's j
  4. What did you do to the m30x's? Have you tried replacing the ear pads? The velour HM5 pads on my m50x have made them at least comfortable for several hours.
  5. Sounds like a very interesting program. Probably a good number of other applications too should you decide you just want to build speakers in your free time.
  6. I'd save a lot of money on audio equipment...
  7. We use this stuff pretty frequently in the financial services industry. Don't want people looking in our windows now do we? I can't really point you in the direction of a good film (3M probably does something), but can confirm that the high quality stuff we use does prevent people from being able to look in, while still allowing a clear view out. Just know that it might piss off your neighbors with glare.
  8. Haven't used those, but they look like a fantastic option. Good find.
  9. I guess it depends on what you're looking to do. They're my best "portable" headphones so it was worth it to me to do it. I had store credit to a local a electronics store and the m50x were pretty much the only option I had at that store. I use them at work and with the velour pads they're comfortable all day. Maybe someday I'll upgrade, but probably not until these break which could be a while.
  10. This is pretty much my summation of the m50x as well. I put the HM5 Velour pads on them. I wouldn't say it really flattened the headphones because they don't fix the mids, but in my opinion do tame the bass and treble. But just like you said at their normal price point they're really not worth it. Then add $20 pads and you get a lot of meh.
  11. I think you're over complicating the idea of MoCa. Think of it as you would think of a powerline adapter (not at all the same, but stick with me here). It's all the same network. Routing is handled at a different layer of the network. As such changing the physical media has limited impact on the actual routing (what you're calling DHCP). As long as the physical layer can carry TCP/IP packets you're existing router will work. As a side note I'd stay away from the Netgear nighthawk stuff. But that's just a personal dislike of consumer grade network equipment.
  12. They'd still be reliant on the router for routing, and since your probably using consumer gear switching as well. It is still a TCP/IP based network, it's just a different medium than you're used to being used to transmit the data.
  13. https://www.amazon.com/Actiontec-Bonded-Ethernet-Adapter-ECB6200K02/dp/B013J7O3X0 These are top of the line from what I understand. Seems like most people have been able to sustain 500mbps + on them. Apparently they require a firmware update out of the box that isn't advertised. A google search of the model will get you directions on how to do it though. There is some research that you would want to do before going this route. For instance you want to order MoCa compliant splitters and replace your existing ones more than likely. You'll also want to put a filter on at the entr
  14. Do you have Coax run in your house? You could look into MoCa.
