  1. Part Sourcing Assistance/Advice Thread

    Did you try 4.39mm?
  2. Part Sourcing Assistance/Advice Thread

    Digikey appears to have some promising results when I searched for 3.5mm 5 conductor, 5 contact jacks. I'll leave it to you to look into it further.
  3. Sennheiser HD660S Releasing in November

    From the linked article: The picture appears to be of the 4.4mm pentacon plug.
  4. What are you EATING right now?

    I greatly prefer Mexican Chorizo. Me: Took the kids out for burgers and fries (shakes for them, beer for me) while Maura had to do parent/teacher conferences. Chili Fries for me / Truffle fries for the kids in the background Urban Cowboy Burger (burger, bacon, cheddar, onion rings, bbq sauce, chimichurri)

    Might be worth buying a cheap brake if you think you're going to do it even infrequently and have the space. Otherwise you can turn just about any table into a brake if you're willing to fasten something down to it and do the bending with your hands. Or do this - http://www.instructables.com/id/Simple-Sheet-Metal-Brake-No-Welding/.

    RIP Bill, that's a tragic way to go.

    This. Those pics are straight out of something like the Walking Dead.

    CJ, If the wall is already made of wood you don't need blocking to support the TV. Just use a stud finder (cue Steve) and go from there. Every wall mount I've seen allows for the variable spacing of wall studs. As far as in-wall/ceiling is concerned I wouldn't worry about Atmos but I'd make sure you've got full 7.1/2 if you can. Wiring is a huge pain, but worth the effort if you can. My rather meager setup in the new living room (Polk Audio in-wall and ceiling, Yamaha receiver) is totally adequate as far as my expectations go. Sir Stretchy also did in-wall in his new digs but opted to go big L/R and simulated center based on the advice of folks likely a lot smarter than me. Lastly, yes, definitely use boxes for the speakers. Or at least I did based on my research.
  10. What are you Grilling now?

    Fired up the smoker today while working on the deck. The ribs came out great (there were 4 sets like this is total) and the deck isn't looking too shabby. Still have the other half of the railing to do but now that we've got it figure out it should go pretty quickly.
  11. HC Bike/Cycling Thread

    I think Jeff does... my 2c is that you already own the MBP so I'd definitely try it first and it's unlikely that it'd run any better on a super-cheap Dell. It's all going to come down to graphics performance vs. what you expect. If you're ok with not running the settings at Ultra odds are good it'll be just fine. Macs have come a long way with their onboard graphics, especially the MBPs and now use chipsets similar (if not the same) as their Win counterparts.

  14. What are you EATING right now?

    Appetizers while orange chicken cooks in the oven. Bacon wrapped, cream cheese stuffed jalepeno peppers. A friend has been dropping off a half dozen or so for a few weeks and this has become a staple.
