2022.01.27 17:24 Marqlar Day Two - trudging through another normal day
2022.01.27 17:24 slymm Help me purchase a good receiver for mostly TV, but also casual gaming, music, and movies
My 12 year old receiver from this combo died recently: Onkyo HT-S6300 7.1-Channel Home Theater Receiver and Speaker System.
I tend to do deep dives when it comes to researching electronics, but I started to get overwhelmed by not even knowing what many of the technical terms I was reading. Ideally, I'd like to keep the speakers I have (at least for now), but I don't even know if they are usable with today's technology.
Budget and currency: $500 or below for the receiver, $0 for the speakers, unless I'm fooling myself in thinking these old ones are fine. I'm very much into getting value with a purchase. If you can make a compelling case that spending an additional X is worth it b/c you get Y + Z, then I'll be on board. That being said, I don't think I have a refined ear for audio. I certainly like vinyl more than streaming, but I know my pallete is unrefined.
In which country are you located: USA, NY area
Where can you buy from: Costco, Amazon, Bestbuy, in that order of preference. Prefer to avoid refurbished, as irrational as that may be
What you want to use it for: Mostly TV. I have and use all the major streaming apps (youtubetv, hulu, disney, prime, hbo, netflix, etc etc). I have a 4k/HDR TV but don't pay for the 4K option of YoutubeTV nor Netflix. It's a smart TV, with chromecast built in, but I also have a Roku attached.
I mostly watch TV over movies, and mostly like the 360 element of surround sound over the booming, theater like experience. I especially like being able to focus in on the centedialogue speaker, especially at night, and then crowd noise for sporting events. That being said, I certainly like the theater experience when watching Star Wars or something.
Out of convenience, I currently listen to spotify on my many google homes. I have a turntable in my house, but not the living room, but may eventually move it (or buy a 2nd).
In the living room I have a PS4 and Switch. I will eventually get a PS5, but am in no rush. I don't necessarily care about getting the absolute cutting edge image when I play. I tend to not play online nor competitively: I'm more into casually playing FIFA or games like Zelda
Lip Syncing issues are a big pet peeve of mine. I've had issues with certain streaming apps moreso than others, and even manually adjusting my receivers sync has never proven 100% effective. Dialogue and lips not matching drives me crazy.
I like how when I push the "on" button of my switch controller, the switch, TV, and receiver all used to turn on. Would certainly like that feature to still be a thing On a desk or in a room (or both)
How big of a space and how loud: I'm really just eyeballing this, but maybe 10 ft by 9 ft? With the TV being in one corner and the VIP seats all along the back corner in an L shape. Loudness is not a priority.
Optional but also helpful
Powered, passive, or no preference: Powered, I guess? You tell me.
Any size limitations for either speaker or amp: My rear two speakers are on book shelves. I've never really perfected the location of my speakers, and all 7 are kinda in a convenient general location of where the should be, but I could be motivated to change that.
Do you want something you can easily upgrade later: "Future proof" sounds too expensive, but I would certainly want a receiver that can hold it's own for several years. Again, not sure what goes into a speaker and if I need to upgrade all these. If so, I would like to upgrade speakers slowly down the line. I do prefer 7.1 over 5.1. Only in the past week have I learned about firing sound off the ceiling. Kinda freaked me out!!
Do you like your music / games / movies / etc. to sound a certain way? (Bright/forward, smooth/laid back, neutral, etc)
I don't think I have the ear to know. I like classic rock, 90's rap, 00's indie. I like my music sounding unclean and not overly processed. I've been known to enjoy some bass, but I'm old, and it's no longer a priority
This caught my eye on slickdeals: Costco Members: Yamaha TSR-700 7.1-Channel Network A/V Receiver $440
People in the thread were talking about a panel issue that may need to be replaced (though they speculate newer productions don't have that problem anymore)
If you tell me "prices are going to drop if and when the supply chain issues get resolved, I can certainly wait.
Thanks so much! I really appreciate you all for having a knowledge in such a specific area and being willing to share it.

2022.01.27 17:24 a_mlsss Does anyone find the sizing of the ABC joggers off?
I’m a medium in every other brand (Nike, Vuori, Rhone) but for some reason a pair of medium ABC joggers is impossible to even get on. I’m a 32 waist but I find the large to fit me just fine without having to tie the drawstrings

Been looking to transfer mostly because a lot of my friends are on Aether and I'm on Crystal but I've been keeping the server page up almost all day since yesterday with no openings whatsoever. Any chance they'll open back up or will Square have to add more servers to Aether to help the congestion?
