I got this one not too long ago.

I'm a fan, a lot of adjustability. Still trying to get everything dialed in with it, but definitely more supportive then my last chair!

Absolutely - its funny but now that so many are W@H you see more and more of them on the other side - so I'm always like "they gotta be comfy right??"

I went with a custom 19 from AllSteel myself. But then again I know one of the designers so I got a pretty good discount (still ~$800 before shipping) and worth every penny. Absolutely love it.

The reason you see everyone with them isn't because they are comfy or great, it's because they are cheap. Forgive me for saying this, as this is not the crowd to unleash such a comment to; but it's the same with E90's. You see them everywhere, not because they are mechanically sound, well trusted vehicles; it's because they are cheap to buy and people who know nothing about them get to feel like ballers.

I was going to suggest one very similar to this, but about $200 more. Neue from secretlab - https://secretlab.co/collections/neue

As I understand it, eARC simply is capable of passing though higher bandwidth and speed for the very latest audio standards....but I don't think I'm telling you anything you don't know. Is there possibly a firmware update for your Anthem that allows eARC?
Just last night I was looking at the Anthem firmware updates but I saw nothing about eARC. Honestly I got board and decided I'd just experiment when I have the new display.

How I would potentially use eARC is to stream ATMOS-enabled movies, or perhaps high-res music files from the smart TV apps. In reality, I'll likely just stream movies from my Apple TV into the AVR for movies like I do now. For music I'll definitely keep on utilizing the AVR's built-in PlayFi music streaming. I am just kind of curious if the Anthem's hardware can support eARC. We will see.

ATMOS is actually a major benefit when set up correctly. I call it the biggest advancement in surround technology since we started having discrete surround channels (Dolby Digital). Unfortunately the more complex you build a system, the more complex it is to set up.

Funny, I can't stand those gaming chairs. I don't find them comfortable and they feel cheap. I use a Herman Miller Aeron size C for my gaming setup. I use another Herman Miller size B for my home office. At my remote offices I have either Herman Miller size A or B. These are the best chairs ever made imho and worth the premium.

If you are going to get one I would recommend not cheaping out. Don't skimp by not getting the locking tilt and lumbar options, these are essential. I also like the fully adjustable arms. Specced out they are $1500 but sometimes they show up on Craigslist when a company is liquidating and you can get a good deal.

I had this at one of my offices. Pretty good chair actually. If I didn't have a Herman Miller addiction, I would get this chair.

Glad you mentioned that - went ahead and placed an order ... lets see how my tushy and back feel when it arrives.

Unfortunately, i wasnt ready to pony up for a HM or the sub $800 chairs

thanks for the info all!

I couldn't find anything better for the price. Don't get me wrong I wanted the Herman Miller lol, but didn't want to bite that price tag bullet!

I actually got my size C for under $600 from Craigslist. These are robust chairs that are built to last, so even used ones tend to be in good condition.

I've had my Aeron for about 10 years now. It's still as good as the first day I got it.

I ordered my Apple Watch 6 with the new Solo Loop band, but I decided I want to try the new Leather Link band for daily use. I'll likely keep the Solo Loop band relegated to wearing during sports.

I just ordered my 6 as well yesterday but I got the blue casing. ETA 2 weeks from yesterday. I am upgrading from a Series 2 so I am sure I am going to love it. I also was missing having the LTE that I previously had and actually used a bit so that will be nice to have back.

I notice a significant improvement in responsiveness compared to my 4th Gen Watch. One thing I already noticed is I can now watch (and hear) a video iMessage right on the watch. Not sure if that's unique to 6th Gen but I couldn't do that on my old Watch.

Mine takes 5 seconds to respond to anything, even just a button press or touching the face. I am expecting a large improvement One and a half more weeks to wait cause I wanted the new blue one.

Strange... my series 0 is 5 years plus old and still has no issues.

Woke up to low tire pressure. $600 later.....two new rear tires. I'm more upset that I wasn't prepared for this so I could go do donuts and shred the current tires before install. Dmn.
