Home Video Asylum

TVs, VCRs, DVD players, Home Theater systems and more.


...or just late to the thread?

Either way, I'm biased toward the "media computer" per se'. I haven't had a TV in over 25 years (ever since C-band parabolics went out of style). My media (Win) PC has had TV/Sat tuner cards of various iterations over the years, and used Daum PotPlayer, Foobar 2000 and Sichbo PVR to ingest varied media from IP streams and over-the-air antennas. I watch vids and concerts over the same near-field monitor I lurk the Asylums on.

However this also relies on USB for eventual routing to the DAC in play. All a part of the audio system that runs 24/7; you might say its part of the family by now...

I find this arrangement to provide the flexibility I desire, but also presents and expects a willingness to accept an eventual need for addressing a different set of tweaks than normally found in your traditional path to audio Nirvana.
