    New Chair

    The point is that a high end chair will last significantly longer and so works out to be ultimately cheaper considering the life span. To me someone spending $300 repeatedly has lost their mind.
  2. It doesn't. That's about as relevant as telling us what you had for breakfast last Tuesday. Switch choice is all about preference. What layout do you want. https://blog.wooting.nl/the-ultimate-guide-to-keyboard-layouts-and-form-factors/

    New Chair

    My Herman Miller Aeron is 21 years old almost and in near perfect condition. I only had to replace the gas cylinder last year for like $35. It also happens to be an order of magnitude more comfortable than any other chair I've sat on in my entire life.

    So instead of paying that once you keep spending $300 ever few years? Sure that makes sense.
  5. If you can find them in stock any of the Swan powered monitors in that price range will do great. Like D1080, D1090, D300, M200 or similar.
  6. Yeah, I think the SU-8s is a solid choice in that price range.
  7. Surround decoding can be done on a PC. You need a sound card that supports it though.
  8. Optical switch don't require denouncing which is usually 5ms. So they are 5ms faster which you will never notice.
  9. This is extremely rare and probably impossible to find and meet your other requirements. If you really want a numpad just get a separate one. There are plenty of these. Other than that what is your budget?
  10. If you don't mind DIY then either X-LS Encores or CSS Criton 1TDs With the upgrade crossover they far exceed speakers 2 or 3 times their cost.
  11. Can confirm. My Aeron is over 20 years old and still in grate condition despite daily use. I only had to replace the gas cylinder within the last couple years.
  12. Herman Miller Aeron. No question.
  13. 3.5 is an analog out, meaning you are using the monitors internal DAC which is almost guaranteed to be terrible. Get the audio extractor and a system that has a good dac/amp incorporated. You could go full discreet, separate dac amp and speakers or full integrated, an active speaker with digital in. Swan M200 MK2 are a good option. What's you budget? Also don't get a sound bar.
  14. Does the monitor have some kind of digital audio out? If not you are using it's internal dac which probably cost $2. If not and you want to accomplish the same thing get an HDMI audio extractor. Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/LinkS-Extractor-Splitter-Converter-Chromecast/dp/B00XJITK7E/ Then get a DAC and speaker amp to power the speakers, or just get active speakers with a digital in.
  15. So a 3.1 setup? Yeah you should probably look into an AV receiver. However if the onboard audio on your is capable of doing the decoding and outputting the separate channels then you could get away with just buying a cupule of small (but powerful) class D desktop speaker amps. Like the SMSL SA300 or some of the cheaper Fosi model on Amazon.
