Home Theater Story: Do Subwoofer Cables Really Matter?

Home Theater Story: Do Subwoofer Cables Really Matter? When building out a world class audio system, is it worth investing in high end cables? The verdict is decidedly split on that one with some saying cables don't make any difference and other proclaiming that a high end system requires similarly high end audio cables. For much of the past 3 years, I've been wracking my brain around a perceiving deficiency of bass coming from one of my dual subwoofers. The overall response did not seem as even as it should from 2 subs. After trying just about everything to try and fix the problem, it occurred to me that the only remaining difference between the 2 subs was the RCA cable used to connect back to my preamp. Could that really be the source of my problem? Can cables make a difference on the perceived sound of my subwoofers. Check out the video to get the full story and find out the answer!

[RANT] Why It's Not Anti-Consumer For Sony To Exclude PS4 Controllers on...

Image
Are people really suggesting that Sony is wrong and anti-consumer by not allowing PS4 controllers to work on PS5 to play PS5 games?! That is how every console generation has functioned for the past 40+ years. Allow me to break down why that expectation is ridiculous: As many have said this is how virtually every previous console generation has gone. New console -> new games -> new controller. Even when a controller change may be as simple as adding a button or two, it still was a requirement for playing the new games on the console Sony is still allowing PS4 games to be played on PS5 with the DualShock4 controller. The PS4 controller and all it's games were designed with those specific capabilities in mind. It makes sense that since the PS5 will be backwards compatible with PS4 games, that you can use the older controller if you choose. If THIS was not the case, I can somewhat see people complaining here about the strategy being "anti-consumer" and such (i.e if

Real Talk: Gaming Hardware Is About Maximizing Efficiency Not TFLOPs

Image
The discussion on which next gen console is more "powerful" has been heating up lately with most believing the Xbox Series X to be more powerful solely on higher spec counts in certain categories. Yet some folks counter that with how the custom hardware in PS5 will alleviate some of it's relative performance deficit and the difference will be minimal. Before I proceed, let's really think about what we mean by "powerful" in this context because it could mean several different things. People tend to just toss that number around and say "system X has more TFLOPs so it's more powerful" or "System Y can run at higher framerates so it's more powerful". It is an important distinction in the context of the next generation consoles since both system have advantages in different areas. For this discussion, I want to focus on actual game performance as the goal. Meaning which system can actually process the most data in the shortest
