Hence why I said "prior to the renovation."
I tore all the walls down to the electrical, and tore that out too. Redid everything from scratch, gave myself my own circuit, and even installed new windows.

Are you sure? Because it seems like what you are promoting by implying such a thing is absurd and childish. You are implying that anything which a person does that doesnt strictly conform to societies absurd and childish politics is childish. I know its not your fault and i dont hate you. I know you dont know what youre saying and i wish you no harm.. That also doesnt mean i am specifically defending the object you criticized. Its the inward state that is truth and thats whats important.

Recently became part of the PC master race and lost my tv stand to hold all my consoles. Now they sit under my desk as I emulate most games I really want to play. How bad is it if they stay under my desk like this? Especially the dreamcast. It's the last /vr/ console I bought before my computer.

Alright makes sense. Haven't fully gone to emulating as I spent like 7 years of my life collecting all these consoles. Born in 2000 so I never got a chance to really play them and the games they all offer. Just don't have the room for them right now.

What's the comic strip he has taped to the monitor?

Literally every "1337 g4mrrr" has a million green LEDs around their room and it always looks abhorrent.
By having the green LEDs, you aren't adding personal flair, you are in fact conforming to what's popular.

Well I had two older brothers too, so we each got a game for Christmas & our brithdays. Plus I'm certain my brothers occasionally bought a game with their saved up money.

It's a clean set up, the colors match, and there's no unnecessary bullshit. Just the console. the controller, the games, and the screen. The real pretentious set ups are the ones who try to display the entire collection at once. Having one console hooked up at a time and focusing on it is the opposite on pretentious.

What would you guys recommend for audio? I currently move my computer speakers between my desk and my TV, and it works but is something I'm trying to avoid.

These speakers have two inputs, one from an RCA to 3.5mm adapter from a switch box, and another straight from the TV's headphone jack for RF consoles. I'm trying to avoid a receiver since it's be real pricy/big, so if anyone has any compact suggestions it'd be appreciated

Digital power amp (tiny, cheap, low noise) and bookshelf speakers of your choice (as cheap or as expensive as you like). Use it on the setup you use the most for music and movies and stick the pc speakers on the other setup (or not, depending on your preference of course).

Is that a Denon dvd-2900?
God damn it looks sweet in black, mine was gold.

It was my first highend dvd player, got it used for about half of new price in 2004 I think. Really good sound quality as a cd player aswell in a stereo setup.

I replaced it with a dvd3930 in 2010 as I wanted better picture quality, gave the 2900 to my mom.

I still have the 3930 which works flawlessly and is unsurpassed in both video and audio quality in any dvd player I've personally seen/heard.
The 2900 started to struggle ejecting, so it got thrown out.
A bit sad, but not really worth spending anything fixing up an old dvd player that rarely gets used. I just gave her a spare bluray player I had instead.

I actually have a Panasonic vhs player aswell, the NV-FJ604.
