That is, if you feel like installing your own SSD in the laptop. If you do, get a Samsung 850 EVO or Pro. There are subtle differences, and the Pro will last longer. But you'll pay a premium for that. If you don't feel like installing your own SSD,

I go to AVS only for DIY theater build threads, acoustical treatment information, and the custom printed acoustical panel thread. I stay clear of the rest because someone, as mentioned before, always has an agenda.

Pre-amps, Receivers, Processors, power amps ... etc ... "usually" have less fighting than speakers and subwoofers. The exception to this is if you start a thread about the audible differences between Pre-amps, Receivers, Power amps ... etc

As is typical for the "science guys" on AVS forum, they mention how other companies use "real measurements". Axiom uses the NRC for measurements, which is probably the most accurate system for measuring one can find. These measur

Yeah, my VP180 blew my VP150 out of the water, even more so when I added some acoustical treatments to my room. Even so, I am still surprised that in some instances it was only subtly better.
