Sony NEX-3 camera, it came with some accessories including a shotgun mic that I sold. So the camera ended costing half of what I paid, quite a bargain. It's a older camera but still quite nice for a compact mirrorless and has some great features of a pro camera.

Do you have plans to mount old rangefinder, and other film era optics to this camera?

It's a gift rather than a purchase, but whatever (I got it over a week ago but only had time to play this weekend! :P )

My old headphones recently started to tear my ears up, and despite my usual efforts, nothing seemed to solve the problem. They were on-ear headphones (marshall monitors), but honestly, quite comfortable at first. But in the last month or so, they started tearing away at my ears, no amount of adjustments were doing anything and some new pads didn't help either so I just decided to get some AKG K92's to tide me over to a planned upgrade (probably some Beyer DT1770s)

 

Pretty decent headphones for the price in all honesty, though sound wise, it almost feels as if something is missing sometimes, and I just can't put my finger on what it is.

Maybe some older lenses if I can get them for cheap. Camera gear is very expensive!

A few things I picked up or have picked up over the last several weeks:

  • A MNML case for my phone. Pricey, but I had one of those clear soft silicone cases and I wasn't really digging it and I don't like to make my phone fatter than it needs to be.
  • An Anker 4-port USB travel charger. I have two port one, but the AC prongs don't have any tension for some reason.
  • A Nintendo Switch charging stand. Sometimes I just want to play my Switch on a surface, but I don't want to play it on a big screen. It might even double as a phone charging stand too

FYI, I have a 7970 that died last year (bought that one for $40 CAD over 2 years ago knowing it had issues), I was able to use the 7970 for a while by flashing a modded BIOS with looser RAM timing and lower frequencies, but after a year, it really died (on screen artifacts, then the system started to be unusable because of "system interupts" taking 100% of the CPU, and then it straight up BSOD'd no matter what I tried).

 

So the cooler on that dead Power Color 7970 is going to be modded to go on the 290x ! :D 

 

So the 290x will look like this when I'm done with it (not my 7970, it's a picture scrapped off Google) ;

Don't forget to slap some decent heatsinks onto the VRMs! 

Had two 290Xes, one cooled by by a H75 and one was cooled by the accelero 3. Ended up slapping gelid's 290(X) VRM heatsinks (the one that uses screws and a thermal pad), which dropped VRM temps from 90-95C using adhesive heatsinks (stock, underload) to less than 65C@stock and sub 80C@1200MHz core :)

 

Kinda funny how I went from dual 290Xes to a 6-pin RX470 (consistently throttled due to power limits) to what I have now, a Fury... ?

Well not just that. I'm part Japanese and I'd love to someday go to rural Aomori to see where my grandmother lived before the war, and maybe meet some extended family and actually be able to communicate with them. And to see where my mom lived as a little kid in Hachinohe before the family moved west.

 

I had been wanting to start studying Japanese for a while and when I was watching the Persona 2019 concert in late April last year and saw Persona 5 The Royal get a Halloween 2019 release date in Japan but an unannounced (at the time) 2020 date in the west that was the last straw. I'm nowhere close to being able to really play a Persona game in Japanese though. My comprehension playing Persona 5 in full Japanese with a Japanese copy was pretty poor last time I tried a couple of months ago. I'd have some sentences where I'd understand them fully but lots where I wouldn't know like three words in the sentence, and it's hard to get much out of a sentence where you have two or more missing pieces you don't get. After Tobira I'll give Persona 5 another try though in Japanese and for now stick to easier things like reading Yotsuba and NHK Easy News articles.

Switch Lite in Gray, Switch Travel Case, Oppo Reno 2Z, Screen Protector for Reno even though one is included which I didn't know but hey I've got two now, Minecraft and Mario Kart 8 for Switch, Joy-it armor case for my Pi 4, Noctua NT-HS - finally got my very own tube of the best Thermal paste and Arctic Silver Arcticlean - it was recommended to me so I figured I'd try it out. I've also ordered a Bluetooth adapter for the Switch so that I can use my ANC Headphones with it because it doesn't have Bluetooth built in even though the WiFi Chip would support it, ikr. lol.

 

Also this is the last picture taken with my old OnePlus5T. Only Sharp and clear Photos from now on.

More studio crap. Finally decided on my subwoofers.

 

image.png.afa01119257527ad23a7a97d9436d2a9.png

 

 

Best subwoofers Genelec sell, that won't look silly big in my listening room/studio.

 

This is the model above them, which is just silly:

 

image.thumb.png.378fa693e829b38257e99c03f4f86a31.png

 

Also sat on these, waiting to have a bit more dosh before springing on them. I want to leave my "HiFi" speakers alone for home cinema stuff, and use just monitors for surround mastering.

If you have any questions about ultra high end audio (Or any speakers or audio gear!), don't be afraid to shoot me a message, or mention me.

 

Spent over 960k on audio gear, still trying to increase sound quality.
