Yeah, they’re cutting costs as much as possible. Now, weight is relative, if you run a Class A/B amp it’ll be heavier than say a Class D amp (not that many receivers use Class D amplification but my point stands). I upgraded from a RX-V440 to a RX-V1075 a few years back and am grateful for the addition of HDMI Read more

I really like Fuji cameras, I want a X100V but it’s just not in the budget. If I ever did go that route I would get a Xpro3 just because it’s so stills focused.

Yeah! The rest of the car is bone stock, just the wheels which I got through work for... well.... next to nothing. Factory wheels have winter tires on them as they were in rough shape when I bought the car.

Why would you want climate buttons on the steering wheel when it has auto climate control? It even auto controls the heated and cooled seats if you have that option.

The AS 3 is 2 generations old now, the As 4 is the cream of the crop, unless you need snow traction but don’t want winters, then you get the DWS-06.

How are they performing? Being Bridgestone employed helps, and is why I’m not saying “should have got Pilot Sport All Season 4's”.

You would technically need to do that test blind to be able to trust the results. Knowing the difference is enough for your brain to skew the results. That said, lossless isn’t as important to properly produced music. Once you hit 320kbps, the compression and mastering on the track will have a more profound impact on Read more

The rattling was an issue with the subwoofer in the rear deck. The new TLX uses 2 subwoofers on a “telford” angle to cancel out vibrations.

Agreed. If you’re running data saver then I can see the difference, but full fat spotify is good enough to let these systems shine.

Another issue is the Wattage per channel, but not driving all channels. This is becoming common place with Home Theater Receivers where they drive anywhere from 5 to 11 channels, but only test running 1 or 2.

There is also microphones in the cabin that are used for cancellation and engine noise suppression or enhancement (using phase to cancel out engine noise or to let it come through more clearly).
