How Did You Treat Yourself This Holiday Season?

Post by Neil »

Hi Guys!

For me at least - the best shopping day is Boxing Day (Dec. 26th). It's the day I go out and treat myself!

This year, I splurged and got myself one of these:

To go with one of these (I already had this):

I don't know a lot about projection screens, but I figured I'd get the biggest I could afford. I ended up paying $148 (Canadian) + tax. The shipping was only $8, so I can't complain.

Did anyone else do some splurging over the holidays?

Regards,
Neil

I've already just splurged on a monster computer rig with triple monitors (Asus Rog Swfit).

Not sure there is much left to splurge on, I think I'm alright for now.

Not 3D but stereorelated for sure. Plus timeconsuming...

Two pcs of MTX T815-44 for mount in a ported box in my very little peugeot. I for now still use very aged but very much alive RF800a2 amps (2 amps for each woofer, bridged channels which gives 1600Wrms sinewave into each woofer. :P ).
Two new Optima yellow top 75Ah batteries.
I did buy a new class-D amplifier which is supposed to leave 3500Wrms into 1Ohm but for some reason it's way behind the older RF-amps. I think the manufacturer mixed up the definitions of rms watts and dynamic watts... :roll:
2 pairs of Alpine 6x9"ers in homemade doorsides and one old RF800a2 (still have one spare RF-amp on my shelf just in case).
So, i'm just giving my old hobby more attention for now. :P

Have got really tired of everything computerrelated lately. I want to see progress, not endless new ways of milking people of money and turning each and every great idea into pure rubbish. :(

I've been plurging on my new Apartment, Spent over $5000 now and since I am on a tight budget this is a lot of money for me. I finally have everything setup good, I just need to get an Hdmi 1x2 splitter.
