  • Crybabies in the comments: this was just how a PCB is made! Actual video: starts with a finished PCB and begins soldering components to it. 🤦🏼‍♂️ Don't complain if you can't even identify what you're watching.

  • "Far more workstations than people to use them," so those $100,000 speakers are actually $1,000 with a $99,000 mark-up to pay for those extra, unused pieces of equipment.

  • Hey Linus, this is a video request. I had watched this DE-visions video some days ago: It is a DIY video where a guy teaches us how to replace DVD Drive of a laptop with an SSD or HDD using a Hard Drive caddy. It has great amount of likes but I don't trust him as much as I trust you. Neither he told us about the data transfer speed through Hard Drive Caddy. Could you please make your own video on this topic ? Let's check whether it will work or not. The hard drive caddy costs near 5 USD. I'm waiting for your response for this comment...

  • The RGB is ugly as hell lol, but I guess it's ok if you can turn it off. But then again, if you can turn it off, it still cost a dollar or two to add it to the speaker, which means I rather put that dollar on the sound. But I guess all kids wants RGB.

  • Even if these speakers are really that much better that the price is justified, nearly all recordings available today are mastered assuming phone earbuds and crappy home stereos, making all this pointless.

  • Meh, just get some Genelecs. Under a grand for a pair sized for personal listening, under 10 grand to equip a decent-sized room for 7.1. Anything more expensive is going to give you massively diminishing returns on your investment, unless it's a large performance venue, and you're getting line arrays.
