    YOLO'd a Tp-Link AX11000 - set it up all good but realised that my wifi speeds hover around 40-50mbps at the end of the house, plugged in to powerline adapter and through ethernet gives me max 70mpbs, standing next to the router I get about 600-700 over ethernet and 200-300+ on WiFi. House is max 120sqm so don't know what's happenening here.

    2.4ghz or 5ghz? What are your walls made of? Single or double level? How old is the house and when was the wiring last done?

    That speed reeks of N spec wifi. Need to activate and setup the AC in the setup.

    Wouldn't hurt to use a wifi analysis app on your phone to see how many of your neighbours are sharing the channel you're on with you. My wifi speeds tripled just by changing to a less populated one.

    It has smart connect so it will use the best one there is. Walls are gib. Single level. 1950's house.

    How do you mean by this? Isn't it supposed to automatically be set up? Model is an AX11000, tried to fiddle around with the settings but don't see what you mean. I followed all the instructions on PB to set it up with Orcon.

    Yep will try to do this. I tried this before but didn't make much of a difference. Will try again later.

    Nothing unusual there Vic, WiFi turns to shit over distances, particularly 5ghz (this includes 802.11ac). Add a few walls, a weak client radio, interference from neighbors/other devices and 50M isn't so bad

  7. Post
    I would say the distance between the room is around 35-40 meters if using a cable.

    If its a direct signal I would say it goes through 3-4 walls. I manage to get 150mbps so far through WiFi, tried gaming on it and the ping spikes (as would be expected with WiFi). Have been using my powerline adapter so far to game and WiFi for everything else.

    Not a true yolo but just ordered the Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super Gaming OC from CL ($899).

    not sure how im going to explain to my partner that we gotta drop by CL after work

    was seriously considering going for the 2080ti but my judgement and wallet got the better of me.

    who knows, i might finally do a real yolo when next series cards come out..............

    Nice, Im hoping to get into some decent audio some time next year, what does something like that cost?
    I'm currently running a JBL 5.1 with an onkyo av receiver which is fine for movies and tv but is lacking a little in quality for music.

    Im doing similar (Onkyo with Wharfdale speakers), how do you handle having seperate volume controls? My wife gets pissed off that we either ahve to use two remotes or use the harmony remote which is so goddamn laggy.

    On special atm: https://paulmoney.co.nz/product/klip...helf-speakers/

    Klipsch speakers in cherry color are incredible, one day I hope to replace all speakers in my house with cherry colored Klipsch models.

    My setup the Onkyo remote will do all tv controls including off and on, selecting "game" output on the remote will also turn my ps4 on. Use the ARC output on the TV etc, makes it really easy to use.

    You can spend thousands or go cheap. Just remember audio gear will last you years if looked after so spending the extra money is always worth it.

    Unless you put it under the house like my dad, all of the cones on his huge expensive kit rotted.

    Yeah i wouldn't be to keen putting things in walls or under the house, Speaker cable doesn't last forever and replacing it turns into a massive job.

    3-5k would probably be my range.

    Easiest way is to visit a decent hifi shop and get them to demo you some gear. I went with QAcoustics for my lounge, great value for money for the quality of sound you get. More expensive doesn't always equal better sound.

    Lol what? Speaker cable will last close enough to forever for it to not be an issue.

  23. Post
    yeah a / b testing stuff with a piece of music you know if possible is probably a good idea.

    I have seen sometimes speaker cable get a tarnished look about it after sometime near the coast ( I assume it was salt in the air or water got to it) but assuming you get adequately sized cable that is slightly better then bargain basement (which isn't expose to salt or water) I doubt you would have any problems.

    Ah not always, If its cheap stuff it can oxidize and turn to shit after a few years. What i meant was if you're going to be building into walls etc, invest in decent cable.
