My understanding is that in-ceiling will not work with vaulted ceilings. You could do front and rear heights, though.

Also, if you were adding the rears in-ceiling, I don’t know if you’d want the height channels also in-ceiling. If you’re set on doing rears in-ceiling, just stick with those—it’ll add some of that depth  Read more

I tried this a while back and I could never get the Atmos for Headphones plugin to work properly. Or maybe it just isn’t very good. But I couldn’t notice a difference between Atmos on and Atmos off in my headphones, so I’m pretty sure I was doing something wrong.

That said, I’ve never been a huge fan of virtual Read more

Haha, such is the problem with audio—once you start upgrading, you never want to stop.

Honestly, it’s probably closer to the ballpark than you think. (Maybe it’s in the nosebleed section of the ballpark, or just inside the parking lot.) Don’t get me wrong, in-ceiling is definitely the best way to go, if you can manage Read more

I did not test those, but I mentioned them in the middle section—I imagine they’ll perform like a better version of the up-firing soundbars. The principle is the same, you’re just using better speakers. I think it’s a great route to go if you can’t do in-ceiling.

Don’t worry Gabe, I’ll be playing Doom Eternal instead of Animal Crossing, so you won’t be alone. Someone has to defeat the legions of Hell or there won’t be any sunny islands for animals to play on.

Honestly, I think this is even more true for Doc in this video. Sure, the face looks like Downey, but the mannerisms are so Christopher Lloyd I still see Christopher Lloyd.

Still not convinced they're brothers. I think Luigi is a figment of Mario's imagination. But like a sexy one.

It is tough! The first thing I usually recommend to people is narrowing it down by open vs closed-back first. If you’re using them at home by yourself, open is ideal, if you’re using them in a room with other people or out and about, closed is better.

Then you can move onto things like noise cancelling (if you’re going Read more

Oh dang, there it is! Thanks, I’ll add to the post. Still doesn’t quite hit the size and price I love about the original, but for those looking to play PS1 or other more powerful consoles this seems great.

You’re right, I should have phrased that differently. Updated the post for accuracy!

I somehow never knew there was a Contra title for the Game Boy, and I’m having too much fun with it.

I’ve been quite tempted by the Retroflag GPi, and I hear it’s one of the best ways to emulate on-the-go. Its size is my only real hangup—it’s a bit bulky!
