    As I'm all retired now, my idea is to play some games during the winter and this Rx 460 is just too weak for newer stuff. The rest of system can take anything you throw at it, only GPU is on weak side.
    Should come today or tomorrow at latest. Got a real good deal on it.

    Just received this sucker:
    Doing some mods now, I love large cases. Lots and lots of places for disks. Bunch of fans.
    I've had that case before, but the white version of it. I loved it. Good airflow and lots of space to work in it. The only annoyance I had with it was the fins in the front. They made it a bit of a pain to get all the dust out from in between them that the intake fans were pulling in.

    Aside from that little thing, though, it was a great case. Nice choice!

    As for me, I picked this up today, but I'm not 100% on it. I never realized how much of a hassle shopping for a 4K monitor with HDR could be. I spent about 3 hours today reading reviews and trying to figure out all the little differences between various monitors before I basically just said "screw it" and bought this one. If anyone has any experience with it, or has any recommendations for one that might be a better choice for 4K HDR gaming, I'd certainly appreciate it. I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to new monitor tech.

    Nice buy Jumanji. Looks like it will work well. Hope they work well in stereo as you want them.

    Hmmmm... I finally gave up the idea of getting another Sony SRS-XB10 after listening to it. The bass is unnecessarily boosted and I had to tone it down with an Equaliser to make it sound original. Decided to go in for a real classic design amp that is also bluetooth enabled. And so

    At Amazon US it is priced at USD 300 which works out to INR 23400. (At Amazon India a special Deal-of-the day price of INR 15500 exclusively for Prime Members. Should I miss it? )

    It is a conventional Class D Amplifiers and not tuned to any specific genre of music though Marshall is well-known for its Guitar amplifiers. In this case the cabinet design mimics their guitar amp but it is not a guitar amplifier. It is designated as Portable Stereo Speakers. Frequency range 52 - 20000Hz. (People still believe they only make Guitar Amplifiers )

    I know, except that Marshal, Fender and R&R were always closely associated since '50s.

    You might wanna look at Kanto YU4 speakers instead for the same price. It has all connectivity options ... AUX, RCA, optical and bluetooth. With phono preamp and remote control.
    Customer service is great, too.
    My YU5 had issue (bad luck) and I was upgraded to YU6 within 3 days. Not just 1, but 2 (by mistake?).
    Of course I am not gonna spend extra to ship back the other one. :)

    @badrobot, thank you for your suggestion. You are in Canada and may be that is the reason why you suggest Kanto .

    1. That pair may be good as a Desktop / Living room audio but those are not portable at 7. 5 lbs a pair. Marshall Kilburn is portable and can run on its rechargeable batteries for 20 hrs (+ or -). No need to hunt for a pair of wall sockets.

    2. I can buy those Kanto on Amazon India (available) but those sellers import it from USA on order and it costs INR 30000/- that includes the import duty. Marshall Kilburn ordered on Amazon USA will cost me USD 300 + import duty USD 203 +Shipping totalling to INR 40000/- The Indian Distributor imports it directly from China and the cost price is INR 27000/-. The discounted price in Amazon India is INR 15500/-(Marshall UK fabricates the Speakers in China) .And so there I am ( Marshall also has service centers in India run by its distributor and comes with a one year warranty. Direct imports carry no warranty - unless I carry those to USA to avail warranty services )

    Just a few hours ago, my Kilburn was delivered and after charging it fully, ran it for 5 or 10 minutes - just a preliminary run to confirm that everything works as intended. No complaints. Everything works ( or else I can return it for a refund. Amazon India will pick it up from my home the very next day and refund as soon as it is picked up by its own courier service, Amazon Transport Services) .
