    When will gpu prices return to normal.

    AMD's debacle was the bundle scam they ran with either the 5700XT or Vega 56/64. You got the lower price only if you bought a monitor/game bundle. If they just priced the card at 350 USD, not 500 USD it would have flown off the shelves as a 390X upgrade option.

    There are a infinite sources of noise from analog to digital. Look at this. https://www.sigidwiki.com/wiki/Category:Interfering Most of these have sound files to listen to. Here is my SDR in action on Youtube Common fixes 1. Poor grounding 2. Place iron chokes on cables , very inexpensive...

    832.65/365 is 4.56 USD a day to own this card. A daily meal at a FF establishment is more.

    Monitor colors calibration?

    Hard to check all boxes in your price range. Do not forget most movies are delivered at 24 fps with a 3:2 pulldown. Some newer RED cameras do 60 FPS for movies. If you really want to be spoiled book a viewing time at a high end dealer and watch a film projected by a 100K Christie Digital system.

    My take on pricing 1. Poor die yield at EUV litho scale. 2. ROI comes up very quick when people expect new GPUs every year. Didn't NVDIA give ASML 5 billion just to reserve EUV time (40XX series)? You know the stockholders want this back ASAP. 3. The days of AMD offering a competitive...

    Can You Hear the Difference between Uncompressed and MP3 Audio?

Some were smooth and some are sibilant and harsh. For example here is a review of a pair of headphones and this...

    Can You Hear the Difference between Uncompressed and MP3 Audio?

    Yeah the 4 Sprauge electroytic power supply capacitors in the Threshold amp are rated at 250,000 microfarad. You could unplug it and jump start a car. Lethal voltages here. Amp output was one HP (800 watts) at 8 ohms. Class A design all hand wired and matched Darlington transistors in a TO3...
