Cool Computer Setups
Hate to be that guy, but this just doesn't make sense. Past the 2 days when the initial novelty wears off, I can't see this being a functional gaming space really.
My thoughts too. Especially to go to all that work, and then hang three shit-box speakers from it, in a terrible configuration. Like, what's the point?
I have the Z5500s (the Logitech system those speakers belong to), they sound awesome.
I don't know much about these sorts of audio setups, how well do bookend speakers do for gaming?
Bookend Monitors like this work awesome. I personally prefer stereo and a sub (2.1) over 5.1, but that I suppose is a personal preference.
As long as I can't directly tell where the sound is coming from I'm happy, I guess thats why I like my Z5500s.
I use an Auzentech X-meridian 7.1 v2 soundcard run by optic fiber connection in 92khz PCM.
Ok thanks for that! I will take that into consideration for my next build.
Oh fuck you. i have these in my basement and to this day i have not AB'd between my REAL setup vs this logitech setup. I will never be able to unhear this. fuck.
No, they sound awesome because you have no point of reference. They are loud and thats it. They sound like shit as far as reproducing accurate audio goes. And that receiver box they are connected to is a slow ass piece of shit. Also the subwoofer is boomy and poorly designed. Also, using the subwoofer as the only amplifier for the entire system kind of blows, and they should have made the receiver box the central amp box.
The outlaw is an exceedingly nice amp. It is all channels driven unlike most receivers nowadays. Even a denon avr1613 would be fantastic.
This all sounds interesting. Will definitely consider this for my next build.
I have z5500, and they suck..
I had 24 hours to place them before the HSC marking. Markers don't care about sound. They are old and didn't really care about the technical stuff full stop. Making them look good is was got me a mark or two extra.
What's up with the sex swing, bro?
How's that? I mean, I see the problem with the speakers but other than that it looks comfy enough with all that movable desc and chair.
I do agree that the unit has some limitations but overall it is a functional piece of equipment. Due to a lack of time, tools, skill and the fact that this was created at a school does make it a lower grade build to your industrial standards. I built this because I wanted a strong concept that I could build upon later on. Mistakes are easy to fix, its the creation of the initial idea that can be most difficult.
Not really. You should have just gone at looked up some already functional stations that are similar to this idea.
I don't fully understand...what benefit comes from this?
Isn't the whole point of frames like this so the frame can move? This is just ridiculous. It's like a car with no windows.
Its bizarre shape means that you will most likely love it or hate it. Its not designed to be moved at all, but instead bring a sense of an environmental encapsulation (immersion). Besides the aesthetics, the arch has been designed for support, speaker placement, additional screens and canvas that can wrap around the top section of the unit.
Lots of knowledge, making skills, creativity, a decent HSC mark, credit for the design and a <1000 dollar profit.
Someone paid you for this?
That looks insanely amazing, especially if you can adjust the screen location.
24 hours of panic is what caused this monstrosity. Luckily for me the HSC markers know nothing about speakers. They just thought they looked pretty!
These are so awesome, and I really am impressed, but I'd love to hear some insight on just why you've done this? I always wonder whenever I see one!
I agree with the rest of your comment but I have to point out his particular setup does have an adjustable desk/chair.
I want to be some sort of designer in the future! and there is nothing else like standing out with a unique design. Your observation about the unit is correct except the chair and table is adjustable. Due to a lack of time, tools, skill and the fact that this was created at a school does make it a lower grade build to your industrial standards. I built this because I wanted a strong concept that I could build upon later on. Mistakes are easy to fix, its the creation of the initial idea that can be most difficult.
Tell me if I'm wrong but to me those speakers all seem very unthoughtfully placed.
Yeah I put them there 24 hours before the marking of the project. So you are totally correct.
Man, that's really cool. All I can think of is "Time to deck in." Are you thinking of doing any upgrades, likes syncing the LEDs to the screen's ambience, or feedback drivers in the seat?
Interesting. The Ferrari wheel makes me cringe, surely you have a MUCH better wheel than that one.
Nope! But I got this wheel of an engineering friend for
Logitech Z-5500. You sir, have good taste. I have those same speakers.
What kind of seat is that?
Very unique setup! cool and professional looking. interested on how much money something like this ran ya.
my good sir. That does include the screens and sound kit.
One of the most amazing projects I've seen in this coolcomputersetups. Good job dude!
Thank you! It sure does look OK but I have definitely seen better functionality from gaming stations.
Are you shamelessly advertising your own here? :D
You cant vote or post on it... so no, i'm not.
