    I went to an audiologist what works with Westone - I made sure they would allow a second refit if needed. Westone said some of the services were a bit rough, but they looked solid to me…

    I am also thinking about some Randolph Edge glasses with prescription insert. I am debating whether or not I would just get single vision lens at the far distance and how dumb it would look if they can’t do ultra high index lens sveltely. I probably need to find a place where I can try them on first, but that’s about a 3hr drive away. I don’t think I will go back to contacts anytime soon…

    Did you DIY the ear molds or did you visit a audiologist?

  3. Finally finished the last part of my side deck that will store various water things.

    Making the gate hard - I kinda made things up. I think maybe I did it all backwards, but oh well - there is no other entrance to this area so the gate stoppers are visible and since it’s all on a slope the had to be cut different lengths.

    It works and kinda matches the hog wire. At some point I would like to put something on the gate - some art of some kind, maybe need to enlist the ping-pongers :)

    Oh and you can see the concrete slopes where it meets the deck - grinding that down was super fun!

  4. Looking at various other items for the system, starting with ViewSonic’s new PX748-4K and EliteScreen’s tensioned electric outdoor screen in 140”. Paying about double for the screen versus the projector feels wrong, but the ViewSonic feels like a good choice despite some odd features mentioned (ARC?) which I can get around I guess as I am planning a 2.1 system.. dunno if others have opinions, but this is the last piece missing working out the throw distance and screen size..

  5. I need to laminate some things together and it’s not possible to clamp them. I want to just screw them together and later use the hole from the screw as a guide for a forstner bit. I am using West System 105 and 207 epoxy.

    My question is, will I be able to back out the screws? I assume so but if not that would be a huge fail.

  6. This seems to belong here…

    working on an outdoor system and looking for something that will accept hdmi and do (at least) Dolby 2.1… and fit nicely in a plastic box. The Sonos Amp seems to be the only choice out there and Altelix seems to be catering toward that with this:

    https://altelix.com/altelix-enclosure-for-sonos-amp-apple-tv-amazon-echo-link-amp/

    First question, are there other options (even DIY) that would work? Seems like a simple board out there would accomplish this much cheaper than Sonos.

    Second question, I need another box because most outdoor subs seem to be unpowered. For that I am thinking DIY in the same enclosure as above with a Mean Well 48V supply (assuming I can get enough current and shove it the same box) and this

    Other options? Maybe just another Sonos Amp? Not sure..

    They are a bit bulky. There are some other options also as reviewed HERE and other sites.I like the active models as they allow better hearing of ambient sound. Peltior are also good but tend to be a bit pricier.

    Yeah active customs would be ideal. I might be missing someone that offers them?
