Well, maybe not always a pleasure... I send you guys a link to the article and you still let me publish it with a factual error? Nice.

I use the 'ol perpendicular tape measure thing; the tape goes into the port and then gets bent 90 degrees to cover the cross section. I just did it again and I'm getting less than 3.25" of width, but I'll take your pictures over my method any day. The article will be updated.

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

To be honest, didn't notice it until @tvuong pointed it out

I tried to register in order to add a comment, but they have banned every email address known to humankind, so it is impossible to sign-up on the site unless you use Gmail. I genuinely appreciate your offer to help me out in your role as a Moderator, though to tell you the truth, I'm completely content knowing you've already received my high opinion of your review. However, I'll be glad to register on Home Theater Shack if my positive response there would be of benefit to you as an equipment evaluator on that forum.
By the way, are there contractual agreements that prevent you from publishing your review here on AVS? (Just wondering...)

Routinely stumbling down rabbit holes...

I fear you might be right. However, I've tamed the pictures and believe it or not the toys rarely rattle and if they do it just takes a good rustling to stop it. It may have been you who recommended this a while back, but this. A lot of this.



After playing Destiny 2 last night until around 2am, not too loud all things considered, I turn around and the R from the M R S decoration on the wall decides to slowly un-peel itself from the command grip that's been holding it on the wall for 2 years and fall to the ground. It's been through MUCH louder viewing than what was happening at 2am with my son sleeping. Still, I'm going to chalk it up to resonance....?
