    It was months, might have been close to almost a half year. Just buy the international version from AJ if you don't want to wait. Yes, I'm using a 200GB card in mine. Works fine. I'd expect that a 256 or larger would work fine too.

    The search function is pretty bad though. Looking for the word walkman in posts by me turns up only 2 posts, and the one in that thread, where I use it isn't one of the returned results. This thread is one and the something random thread.

    I'm not sure what your link has to do with large TVs. I'm still waiting for evidence of 85' TVs. I know about 80" TVs, but 85' TVs are a new concept to me.

    There is no bang for the buck with DLPs unless your criteria is simply projecting a big image for cheap. They have unacceptable performance for a light controlled theater.

    Sorry, but TI doesn't have a .47" native 4K DLP. They're being very misleading in their marketing material. Look at page 20 of the datasheet: http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/dlp470te.pdf It is 1920x1080. There's not a single consumer grade DLP projector that has competitive contrast...

    Anything not DLP. DLP is stuck to like 15 years ago when it comes to contrast. The current projectors are actually worse than the peak of DLP technology. Additionally, the DLP projectors are not actually 4k. They're faux-K. They pixel shift to fake 4k. Some are actually only using...

    Why are you looking at a crappy DLP projector? It's pretty easy. You buy the kit and the flat pack (assuming you don't want to build your own enclosure from scratch). It looks like a few of them require you to buy the circuit board for the crossover separately.

    IMHO, throttle is acceptable. It is ultimately the input to the control system that governs/limits the flow of current to the motor(s). The "fluid" flow to the motor is electrons rather than a combustible fluid or something like steam.

    I'm pretty sure perforated screens are passe. Woven screens are what people are using now for acoustical transparency.

    I have way too many speakers as it is. I have nowhere else to put speakers and I don't have any itch to replace them all. I'm in the midst of adding Atmos to my great room (using DIYSG Volt-10 speakers). As a result it's hard to justify the effort to stay up on them. Yeah, there's a pile of...

    Three identical speakers is the best solution, but most people can't accommodate that. Hence center channels. I've only heard the Airmotiv series of the ones you're looking at. I was quite impressed how good they were for the money. I've heard some ELAC speakers, but not those. The ELAC...

    There are several crashes in the past 10-15 years that suggest fairly strongly that this is not the case.

    That's not at all how the modern autopilot systems in commercial planes work. The plane basically flies itself and the pilot is there to babysit the automation.

    There are more PCBs, more solder joints, more of pretty much everything to fail (except perhaps for NAND chips).

    No one wants over 16TB per drive SSDs

    Everything else being equal, spreading your data across more devices increases the probability of failure. An AID-0 array of 16x1TB drives is almost certainly more prone to failure than one 16TB drive.
