AVADirect BattleBox Ultimate X370 Gaming System Review
     Sat, Sep 23 2017 | 12:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year we took a look at our first system from AVADirect, which was more of a HTPC aimed towards 1080p gamers. AVADirect asked us if we wanted to take a look at another system and we said we wanted something a little more powerful. They told us they had the perfect thing in mind, one of their new Battlebox Ultimate systems. AVADirect offers the Battlebox Ultimate is many different configurations from HEDT like X399 and X299, to more mainstream X370 and Z270 setups. The Battlebox they configured for us is the Z370 featuring an AMD RYZEN 7 1700X processor, GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, 16GB of DDR4 memory, an M.2 PCIe SSD, and much more. They even outfitted the system with RGB LEDs and custom sleeved cables! Is this system going to be able to handle 4K gaming? Read on as we find out!"

TUNAI DRUM Bass Enhanced Audiophile Earphones
     Sat, Sep 23 2017 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Audio is such a subjective thing, but I'm super happy with these earphones. If they were packaged with the name Beyerdynamic, Shure or Sennheiser, you'd be happy spending $100+ on these and marvel that they could put this kind of sound in such and "affordable" package. When you consider that Tunai makes these for a mere $40 regular price, they are a steal of a deal...
