Getting ready for drive-in season
3D because of the great visuals. Good deal and both won on ebay. Both imports and two week wait.
Finally going outside my built-in apps on bluray player/avr with an Amazon Fire Stick. So far so good.
Nice! I have a similar setup in my secondary system. A RXV681 with a pair of 3020s and a 3090 center. The sub is a Rythmik L12. Love those little bookshelf speakers. Very nice for the price range!
I found the full box to function faster than the stick, but the sticks worked very well too.
Great Wall was a surprisingly entertaining dumb action move. Standard story, but fun action. I can see that one being good in 3D.
Read the review of Blade Runner 3D and it was converted, not shot in 3D, so I may pick up the 4K disc instead, even though I have the standard BD already. It will be my first 4K disc And Fifth Element
Old cleats are starting to show serious signs of wear and tear, although they’ve last a lot longer than cleats back in the day. Still, can’t resist a good sale.
Real cleats have a cleat all the way up front...

Get outta here with your goofy front spike cleats
I only use these kind of cleats these days
Didn't need the 4k so just went with the stick....but it is pretty fast. For the $30 thought it was pretty good so I even bought another for the bedroom....
In November 2015 I had to pony up and replace both forced hot air (by natural gas) furnaces at my two-family home. My 1st-floor tenant's unit had completely failed, wasn't going to make the winter. Mine was the same install date, so both got done. When I did it, I had the coil packs installed in the plenums, but ran out of money for the compressors. I wouldn't have been able to do it anyhow, as I would need to upgrade my electric service to 200 amp. (Tenant's service already done.) So, 2016 was the 200 amp service and a few other electrical upgrades. This year, finally I got the system complete. It required $1380 worth of wiring, and $3880 for the 2-1/2 ton and 2 ton compressors, but if it ever stops snowing....we're ready. I will be more comfy not having to open windows to traffic & neighborhood noise. My 74 yr-old tenant will finally be safe, and that makes me even happier. I do care.
Yeah, that would have bought a killer amp, DAC and/or speakers but I spent on my office system already this year.
I have the original one, did not have 4K and currently I don't need it either. Stick went into a second system that I ended up getting rid of, but I think I am going to pick another stick up soon.
The original box? They seem hard to compare since they don't really have readily seen version designations, do they?
Bought Samsung Gear VR gizmo. Curious how well it would work with Plex VR thingy
Something to do on the bus (1h+ commute to work each way, 5d/week)
First gen. There is a difference between Gen 1 and Gen 2, though I don't know how to tell the difference.
I have had mine since last year and still haven't used it. Now that it can be used with Plex, I may have to try it out. The PSVR has this capability already and it is pretty cool. It is like watching a screen the size of your wall. On the PSVR headset you can also watch 3D. The one drawback with the PSVR is only one viewer...
1st gen didn't have voice remote, it's 2nd gen
1st gen stick didn't, only the box. You could buy the remote and pair it with the stick though. Same with the game controller, it can be paired with any of them.
A 38 year old Technics SA-500 receiver is my latest toy. Has a couple of minor issues, and it's just insanely dirty, inside and out, but the only thing that crackles or crunches is the tuning cap below 94 MHZ. All the switches work and feel great, and it sounds fine. It seems to be running warm due to the fuzz and junk stuck to every surface inside it. The wood looks very good, and other than cleaning and deoxit on the tuning cap, all the dial bulbs (New LED ones came today), all I'm planning on doing inside is to change out the main filter caps and probably all the rest of the electrolytics on the amp board, since there aren't all that many, and they are cheap.
Now I'll see if I get the Realistic SA-820 and Mitsubishi DA-R10...
Finally got a good deal on ebay for this 3D bluray.
