Looking for dolby atmos and related format support either as all in one powered or ability to decode the required channels and hook up external amplifiers. High quality amplifiers and brand names like Denon, Yamaha. Connected receivers to stream audio and video to them from our mobile devices and home servers. 4K dolby atmos and other supported relevant video formats.

When I make an entertainment purchase, I'm looking for the bleeding edge tech. With the way companies are constantly evolving and coming out with new features, I'm trying to get something that will keep me with the times for as long as possible. I also shoot for performance per dollar, you can really run into some diminishing returns once you start getting into the upper end. Great example would be the Andrew Jones Pioneer Elite system I've seen here. It's an incredible setup for the money, sure there's better, but you can easily end up spending quite a bit more to get it. With receivers, multiple inputs, 4k pass through and upscaling, Atmos/DTS:X. Again here, bleeding edge and performance per dollar, Pioneer, Denon, Sony are all solid.

I have the NAD M17. It is the last receiver I will ever buy. Not just because of NAD modular upgradability. But because I’ve got maybe another 20 or 30 years left on this planet and even when/if technology outstrips the capabilities of my M17, I’m just going to go ahead and keep using it anyways.

NAD were/are the best performance/value followed by Adcom in my opinion. I just purchased a Yamaha Receiver refurb from Massdrop - paired to an NAD PA driving CSW subs... and I am thrilled so far... although it is a complex beast!

Cambridge Sound Works were the best value performance sat/sub speakers ever conceived... in my opinion. Henry Kloss design and they sounded incredible. Wish there was a Cambridge Sound Works Dolby 7 Atmos setup...

Want: 27 Inch 1440p 144hz+ Monitor w/ USB-C PD + KVM
With many of us working from home and gaming in the same space, I've grown to love my setup that allows me to switch between my work machine and gaming PC on the same display, keyboard, and mouse with the Viewsonic VP2771. The only problem is -- that display is only 60hz. So, I'm in the market for a new work + gaming monitor with this criteria below and found them pretty difficult to find: Features Wanted 27 Inches 1440p resolution for QHD gaming 144hz+ refresh rate w/ FreeSync or G-SYNC USB-C PD input for use with notebooks (specifically MacBooks) DP + HDMI ports for other sources 2+ USB ports for peripherals + USB-B output to PC Built-in KVM switch between USB-C and USB-B VESA mountable There's exactly 1 solid and affordable option: the Gigabyte M27Q, but I'm not impressed with the overall quality in reviews. The Eve Spectrum is on its way this spring it looks like, going above and beyond these features with a 240hz option and many of the same features, coming out of a...

Gerlach Watches
Hey everyone I hope your week is going well. I was wondering if anyone in the community has experience with Gerlach watches? I would love to see a few of their line show here on Drop some day. I know they wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, but they are unique in that I don't believe I have seen any Polish made watches here before. Well, I don't know that I have seen Polish watches anywhere LOL! thoughts?

Completely surprised by the lack of blade diversity here on Drop...
I’ve been a collector of Blades since before my teens, and a retailer coming up on 15… or maybe 20 years. Drop has really been kind of an interesting experience for me, because I do occasionally get to see some unusual tech and sometimes EDC items that otherwise I might not have been aware of. And maybe it’s because I have a deep love of cutlery and bladed weapons, but I find myself trolling through the site looking at it what’s available; and it’s just it’s pretty much the same. And the bladed community here is just always confused me.. every single knife is about the same, they’re almost all drop points and although the handle materials change and brands change.. it’s really just the same knife over and over and over again... occasionally you’ll see a tanto or a slight variant; but rarely… and almost never a serrated blade. And I’m just deeply amazed at this diversion of serrated blades. And I’m just surprised there isn’t more of a request for diversity here.... and I...

Can we get Sony E-Mount or other mirrorless camera options please..
Would be nice to see some Sony E mount full frame cameras on here. I currently shoot with a A99 and they killed the lense path for better or more option lenses and now is all E-Mount. 🤔

There Are Pandas, and Then There Are Pandas.
And this isn't either of them! The Pandas we're talking about here, are watches, not bears. And what got me thinking about them (again) was a link posted this morning by @cm.rook who pointed a few of us to the very attractive (and not terribly priced) Yema "Rallygraph" Panda which, in it's most traditional arrangement, looks like the one on the left, but can also be had in the version on the right: The model on the left is a true Panda, while the model on the right is called a reverse Panda. The reason for that distinction is clear--Panda bears, only come in the first arrangement. Now at this point, everyone should be thinking about the most well-know Panda, The Rolex Panda, which is actually a Daytona, and among Rolex Daytonas, the most famous of which is the Paul Newman Daytona, which was famous first, because it was Paul's, and second because it sold at auction for $17.8 million (US Dollars). The story of that auction is well-known so I'll only...
