Got a new speaker system, the Logitech Z623 2.1 THX speakers. My old speaker was having some really nasty noise and I finally decided to change it with a new one. It's about time to retire that 10 years old Altec Lansing VS2421. They sound really good!!
Also, the new DVB-T2 TV box will allow me to watch TV in my room now, in full HD 1080p. Thanks to digital TV broadcast :)
With all the input devices connecting to the monitor, a HDMI switch is now needed to control which input gets displayed. Currently using the Vention VAA-S20 HDMI switch. It supports up to 4K 60fps, HDCP (very important for content streaming from devices), HDMI 2.0 (required to support 4K 60fps) and the included remote control can be used to control input switching.
The connection from the TV box to the HDMI switch is currently using a extremely long 1M cable, when I actually only need 50cm of cable length. A new HDMI 2.0 cable (50cm) will soon replace that.
Setup looks good and I think it can't get any better than this, other than a new laptop. For my workload of watching YouTube videos, casual gaming, and programming work, this is sufficient.
Will be going to Microsoft Tech Summit @ MBS next week, more to come on that.
Oh, before I forget. Happy 20th Anniversary to Visual Studio! Amazing IDE
Alright, that's all for now!
As always, take care and I'll see you soon!
