Last time I thought I would be satisfied with just that much. Now it's all different.
Same thing applies to audio:
Last time - Creative 2.0
Just now - MX5021/AegoM or equivalent
Near future - A good pair of bookshelves below 1k
(Note: "Just now" did not really exist as I never really bought a $200 PC speaker, but that was what I thought I would be satisfied with at that point of time)
Last time - NeoMini
Just now - Zhaolu D2.5A w/OPA-Earth
Near future - Benchmark DAC1
Last time - 192kbps
Just now - 320kbps
Near future - Lossless
Far future - 24-bit and Vinyl
Whatever it is, one thing is for sure - BD rips rock.
