  1. G'day All, I thought it might be nice to share benchmarks of our computers from userbenchmark which provides a free download for benchmarking relative to other pc's on their site. Very happy with my current gaming rig. UserBenchmarks: Game 125%, Desk 142%, Work 126% CPU: Intel Core i7-8700K - 108.4% GPU: Nvidia RTX 2070 - 134.6% SSD: Samsung 970 Evo NVMe PCIe M.2 500GB - 254.8% SSD: Samsung 840 Evo 250GB - 110.1% HDD: WD Blue 1TB (2012) - 88.6% HDD: WD Black 1TB (2013) - 91.5% RAM: Unknown CMK16GX4M2Z2666C16 029E CMK8GX4M1A2666C16 029E CMK16GX4M2Z2666C16 029E CMK8GX4M1A2666C16 32GB - 89.4% MBD: MSI H370 GAMING PRO CARBON (MS-7B16)
  2. too true, some only give digital as an option and no network. Is it not the ideal of separating components that hinders the poor ol' integrated? Excuse the superintegrateds who are often feature rich.

    How many buttons to play music?

    Sounds like you need one of those fancy silent electric cars and a custom dynaudio car kit.

    How many buttons to play music?

    Two systems of mine operate on pc, so they are turn pc and integrated amp on, wait for jriver to autoload then double tap whichever album I want. The third system is easy too, power on, put a cd on, hear the tunes. The car is easiest of all. Turn car on, music autostarts.

    Some of the best scifi to hit the screens recently is the expanse.

    Fasting, anybody done it?

    I replaced 4 lunches a week with raspberries and blueberries, has really helped with loosing weight as I'm replacing hamburgers and pies etc so lowering calories drastically and increasing nutrients. Small sustainable changes are whats needed to loose lots of weight and keep it off. Going to take me 4 years to loose 40 kg, about the same effort as a full time degree!
  9. Great features buy I wonder why the power rating is at 6 ohms and 10% thd, seems poor specs. I still like it, but the perfect "super" integrated is the Harmon/Kardon HK990.
  10. Arggg, we're running out of components as we speak, we need group buys of everything and a shed to put it all in, help me I need more components. And that oppo above looks suspiciously non diy.

    Creative Sound Blaster ZXR Soundcard

    I've spent just about the entire day listening to the zxr setup and it's pretty good, great even. As good as the psaudio nuwave dac I used to own, if not better, clearer, more vibrant spacious and enjoyable. I've heard more of the music of Seal, Pink floyd and Sting today than I can recall, so let's call the zxr a winner and worth the $350ish.
  12. I always wonder, why bookshelvers in a lounge? I'd be suggesting dynaudio x44, vaf i66, b&w 804, that kind of thing for a lounge room.
  13. Video streaming is the way forward I reckon.
