A fully specced Mac Pro would probably be okay for games.
Some NOS stuff seems to be worth frankly insane sums of money considering they have a limited usable lifespan. Mullard, philips and telefunken appear to be among the most expensive in the EU. It seems to be the guitar market that's driving the cost rather than the hifi market. Not knowing what they are doesn't necessarily matter as there are some folk out there that seem to be knowledgeable enough to identify them by their internal construction. (plates, grids, getter and mica design and layout)
Got some now monitors to replace my crappy Numark's
New desk/mouse pad. Sour x NK_ Deskpads MX Life White/Blue.
Waiting on custom keys/cable for the keyboard and a Glorious Model D.
Would look cleaner without wires but I've decided against Bluetooth for a few reasons. I am thinking of a white rubber gromet at the top of the mouse mat in the middle for the keyboard cable.
i have some mullards, siemens, phillips, some russian rockets and some chinese ones too.
they weren't cheap either i spent like £200 on them quite a few years back.
would be interested in what you think of them. I was considering some but then decided I didn't need them. Good reviews
@LiE what speakers are those? I'm looking for some decent speakers that aren't too massive.
Phwarrr,that looks quality! i recently fixed up a petrol lawnmower that wouldn't stay running and i enjoyed messing about with it.
Kanto YU2 with the S2 stands. I also have the Kanto SUB6 because they lack a little in the base.
Thanks, I've seen the Kanto speakers and thought they fit the bill. I can't decide between them and the Audioengine A2+, both are identical price and get decent reviews.
Nice mousepad ordered one, 700x300 is a perfect size. What 65% KB is that?
Durgod Hades 68. Has everything you’d want in a 65% keyboard, except PBT keys. Ordered some to replace these.
Bits for my new bike.
If they are vintage items, the mullard and philips are probably worth the most followed by the siemens. Actual value will greatly depend on what valves they are and if they are commonly used parts. Power output valves and rectifiers are worth a lot more than signal valves as they wear out faster so vintage valves are less common.
The rest of the valves arrived today whilst I was in work. Was forced to go for new parts because vintage are just too expensive. Of the new offerings, these are considered some of the best for sensible money.
4x matched Tung-Sol EL34B output valves
2x Sovtek 5AR4 rectifiers
Fiil T1X earbuds. Gonna spend a week or so seeing what they're like and allow my ears to adjust to them before deciding whether to get the Galaxy Buds+ instead or not.
You bought some speaker boxes to replace your Numarks?
Lol, check the home studio thread for more info.
