@ Lunatique : Yes i know all of that but i was just saying that headphones have a lot qualities but you can't compare them with speakers as you can't compare a car and a bike.

 

Acoustics are very complicated but psychoacoustics are even more, i like headphones but from a realism point of view you know they can't compare with speakers for a lot of acoustics reasons but you are right from a tonal point of view they are very good.

 

Just saying it is very different and not the subject. Sorry for the unwanted troll

I've been thinking of building my own, just need to figure out where I can get the panels cut since I don't have a wood shop.

 

Where were you looking for your threaded rods? It looks like Home Depot sells 10ft of 1/2" threaded rod for $9.47 each

That's mad. The bezels on multi-monitor set ups bug me though, although I guess it's not so bad if you don't play games.

One of the best monitor setups I've ever seen.

Play games on one monitor, watch stuff on the other. Or have some kind of docmentation for the game on the other. WoW rules on multiple monitor.

More than 2 is over kill, IMO. Unless you're a hard core gamer. Then I could understand the triple monitor set-up. Other than flight simulators or racing games, I still don't see the real point. I'd rather go for one big one. Not bashing those with many monitors though. It does look neat.

Triple monitor is slightly more useful than double. I can make do with two but three is where it's at smily_headphones1.gif After three you quickly reach diminishing returns unless you have a specialized application (remoting into multiple servers for instance). I'm currently running 1x U2711 and 2x 2005fpw's.

if you guys remember my setup, ive got a dual monitor setup.  i have windows media center playing television on the right monitor while i surf the web on the other.  in windows media center i can record tv and watch it later.  its so much nicer than having a normal tv.  its like tivo, but free.

 

still wish i had three monitors thought because i have an ati card that supports eyefinity.

I bought the 28" monitors last year when I was living in Taipei...I found a place that was selling them at like $300-350 USD each.  Individual monitor res is 1920 x 1200...so I use 3840 x 2400 wallpapers to span across all 4.  
Computer specs:

  • Intel 2.83GHz Quad core (Q9550)
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 2x ATI Radeon HD5700 Graphics cards (each with 1GB of GDDR5 VRAM)
  • 3TB of total HDD space (2x 1TB + 2x 500GB)
  • emu 1212m sound card
  • Windows Experience Index scores are all around 7.3 - 7.4 except for primary HDD which is at 5.9
  • OS is Windows 7 Ultimate

I don't even want to think about the total cost...over $3K easy, but many of the individual elements were purchased over time...it wasn't a single, huge purchase.

 

I'm running some audio outputs from the 1212m all the way to the other receiver in the living room (to the right of the projector screen), so with 4 speakers and a sub near my PC plus the 7.1 in the living room, I can pump music out of 11 speakers & 2 subs...not the ideal audiophile experience or anything, but it really fills up the room.

 

Six weather gadgets is no mystery...just open as many gadgets as you want I guess.

I like to watch 3 movies at the same time and have sex with three different girls at the same time. Life is short
