Huh, it has a built-in two-channel speaker amp. Didn't see that coming. I'd have a great use for that, but if it behaves like the Sound Core3D cards, then it might not output a headphone-optimized SBX Pro Surround mix over the speaker amp outs, which would greatly hinder its usefulness in driving Stax transformer boxes. Also, no mentions of DTS or Dolby Pro Logic II decoding are present, which hinders its use for me in console gaming. There's no HDMI audio-in,...
All this talk about laptop trackpads, and what I really want is for TrackPoints to be more common outside of ThinkPads and certain other business-class laptops, especially if I could hold down Fn or something to scroll with it.   No massive waste of space, easy to reach from the home row, don't have to worry about my palms brushing against it...   That said, much as I prefer them, I wound up on a notebook without one simply because Fujitsu refuses to put them on their...
Well, now I'm starting to miss the 2730p's predominantly magnesium-alloy construction. The T901's plastic chassis is cracking up here and there; I don't know how much more it'll take before something really breaks off on the bottom half. This is not what I expect out of what is supposed to be a business-class machine that started at $1,900 MSRP in its bare entry-level configuration. At least the screen hinge is still sturdy.   On the flip side, the 2760p would've still...
A deep soundstage can project forward and back, not just side to side. I'd expect that sort of thing to rely more on the virtual surround tech used. Earspeakers like the Stax Sigma and AKG K1000 would have more natural depth due to the drivers being in front of the wearer's ears, but that also inherently makes them incompatible with virtual surround and thus less suitable for gaming. You're better off asking Mad Lust Envy what headphones pair well with virtual surround...
 Maybe in years-behind-the-times HDTV land, that's the case due to HDMI bandwidth limitations, but PC monitors have been true 120 Hz and beyond since the days of CRTs. It's part of the reason I'm so fond of my GDM-FW900. As Yethal pointed out, you're really overthinking this. G-SYNC basically lets the GPU control the monitor refresh cycles instead of having to time its frames to the monitor. It only repeats frames in the fashion you're thinking if the framerate drops below...
Personally, the only sort of Mac product I'd really, REALLY want is a Modbook Pro X, provided that it ever gets backed and it's one of the GT 750M configurations so that there's a Tablet PC on the market with a Wacom digitizer that is NOT utterly crippled by Intel graphics for once. It most likely won't hit that funding goal in time due to the extreme cost, though.   But even if I could afford one of those things, I'd probably just set up Boot Camp and run Windows all...
 What did you like so much about the change?I can't speak for OPA2111AMs, but putting LM4562/LME49xx0 variants in place of the stock JRC 2114Ds is a total no-go for me, never again. Everything sounded kinda raspy and shrill on top of the extreme V-shaped response.
There may be some good combinations out there, but I haven't bothered experimenting because I like how the Titanium HD sounds in its stock configuration already. I'd likely find myself disappointed again and again and again.
Don't do that unless you like incredibly jacked-up bass and treble with hollow, distant, recessed mids.I made a similar change and it sounded horrible. Immediately put the JRCs back in and everything sounded much better.
 Destiny ISN'T beloved by gamers as a whole, just because of this. Though even if Jason Jones didn't verbally shoot himself in the foot and collectively piss off the PC gaming community, and even if it actually did have a PC version released alongside all the console versions, you'd probably still have a few snobs and elitists that don't like the game anyway, not to mention those who just aren't into that genre of gaming. You can't expect to please everyone, but hey,...
