    What are you watching via streaming?

    We're two episodes into Dracula, which I have mixed feelings about and cannot decide if I like or not. We are also on Season 2 of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which we are enjoying and finding quite funny.

    This was a huge loss too soon.

    The Witcher - Netflix

    I have not read the books or played the games, so I came to this with fresh eyes. We watched the first two episodes Friday night and the other six last night. Overall, we both liked it a lot and are looking forward to another season. Between now and then, I plan to read the books.

    So who's got Disney + ?

    The documentary show on the history of Imagineering is really good. If you are a fan of the parks, you should definitely watch it.

    I have decided I don't need surround sound, ever

    I still think you need to build a 14 channel Atmos system out of nothing but Statement speakers. :)

    Audiophools abound

    This may be the stupidest thing I've read this year.

    Pretty damned toasty when you pop 'em in the oven.

    What are you watching via streaming?

    We watched the first three episodes of season three of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel last night and they did not disappoint. It remains one of my favorite shows of the year on the strength of great writing, witty dialog and excellent cast.

    I have decided I don't need surround sound, ever

    Dolby Atmos now supports up to 34 speakers. At that point, isn't the room essentially made from speakers. Hey, there's an idea. 34 Flint Statement speakers. You won't need acoustic treatments, because there's no room for them!

    I have decided I don't need surround sound, ever

    There is no point in having great speakers if your room acoustics suck and stereo imaging is inherently based on sitting in the sweet spot.

    VIZIO P-Series Quantum 75" Class 4K HDR Smart TV | P759-G1 or Samsung 75" Class Q60R QLED Smart 4K UHD TV

    VIZIO P-Series Quantum 75" Class 4K HDR Smart TV | P759-G1 or Samsung 75" Class Q60R QLED Smart 4K UHD TV

    If you are looking at Vizio, you should also look at TCL's higher end sets. IMHO, they are eating Vizio's lunch on both price and picture quality.

    MUSIC STREAMING can you recommend a solution?

    They will play the files because Plex is transcoding on the fly. What format it transcodes to depends on the target device. In the case of a Roku, it transcodes into PCM, so you shouldn't lose much (if anything). The smart TV may be getting MP3. It all depends on the device. That's the great...

    MUSIC STREAMING can you recommend a solution?

    If you are happy running Plex on your computer, none from a server point of view. From a client point, it provides a really nice interface. You don't need the Pro for that. Almost every game system, streaming device and smart TV has a Plex client available, but most of them don't support FLAC...

    MUSIC STREAMING can you recommend a solution?

    As long as the music is on network accessible storage, the only thing you need is an NVidia Shield TV Pro. It has both the Plex Server and the Plex Client built in and it is very easy to set up. He could be up and running in 20 minutes on a single device. It can also stream to other devices on...

    I want Franklin's Statement speakers in a full-blown, completely over the top Dolby Atmos system. Of course, all the speakers need to match...

    MUSIC STREAMING can you recommend a solution?

    Plex Media Server combined with a good client like the NVidia Shield TV will handle FLAC natively while also giving you a lot of other functionality. Plex also has a ton of music library management features. It is excellent for this application.

    I have decided I don't need surround sound, ever

    You need to hear his speakers. They might just change your mind. For a single listener in the sweet spot of that room with those speakers, you probably don't need anything more. I did not watch any video content with them, but the soundstage I heard listening to music was massive and enveloping...
