Well, we've moved in. I've got my office half-setup. Still missing a lot.
Got a pair of entry-level studio monitors, the PreSonus Eris E5, and a Focusrite
Scarlett 2i4 USB sound card, it was the cheapest I could find which provided
balanced stereo outputs, which I need for the E5 (I tried with unbalanced RCA,
the noise-floor was loud enough to be annoying at low volume. I'm also happy
with having a physical volume knob, which I'm used to from my old setup where I
had an old Sony amp. I'm amazed at how much more detail I'm able to hear in the
music with the studio monitors, even stuff on youtube sounds nicer and richer,
but it's really at 320 kbit/s MP3 and FLAC that I hear a difference, though I've
done A-B tests between FLAC and MP3 and I can't distinguish, maybe it's just
the recordings I have, but anyhow, it sounds really nice!
I hope I'll be able to start updating this thing more often now, but things are
still a bit hectic, at least in my head, mostly in my head actually...
I started playing it again, not streaming, haven't setup for streaming yet.. I
also have SystemShock, which I'll restart I think.. Anyhow, there's a lot wrong
in the world, not going to rant about that now.. Just a note...
