  • This in Vancouver

  • this has got to be the most nerdy set up ever my brain hurts

  • Imagine if someone accidentally bought a Ryzen CPU and an RX 6000 series GPU

  • Yes sir marketplace the world 🤣💪🏽

  • I think you should do a 5000 intel extreme tech upgrade to a viewer

  • 26:30 Nicehash lol🤣🤣 Nice.

  • Linus stop cheating on your wife with your co-workers

  • My mom gets this type of bonus every 2 months or so .. tells me she’s broke 🥺

  • the art is clearly inspired by hyman bloom

  • Like the new intro man

  • Watching James get pissed about room dimensions and sound quality is the type of audiophile rant I need more on ltt

  • should do more videos together just like this one. Just saying..... :)

  • Linus and James: *end up in the bed togeter the second time * Everyone: I dunno, it kida seems gay to me Edit: No hate

  • Bruh give me 5k to build a PC kuz I don't have one Jk haha I'm sooooo funny

  • starboy, nice

  • blurs painting then shows painting. what?

  • That setup is not impressive nor estetically cool. Try having a look at the beolab 90’s - best regards Denmark. Home of extremely expensive and overpowered speakers

  • r/TvTooHigh unwatchable, literally on the ceiling!

  • The tenet music is perfect

  • 5:54 kat

  • Wait, so they blurred the boobs, but not the dripping vagina? 21:57

  • Shouldn’t the rear speakers be facing the listener?

  • I said this before but I wish this themed intro could be used more often / become the new main intro @Linus Tech Tips #NewIntroForLinusTechTips

  • The sassy bay histopathologically flower because month genetically ski excluding a absurd squirrel. spiky, right rake

  • 4:31 You're not cross? 14:01 How could that be when you already said you got this? 15:23 I'm afraid to ask. 23:50 You meant to say noticeable, right?


  • James! Review that AVR! I’m thinking about picking one up and would like to hear your opinion after having lived with it for a little while.

  • Bruh

  • You should do this with your viewers

  • The mistakes Linus is making occurred cause he didn't have his nap.

  • Not trying to flex but I made a desk out of free usps boxes and tape also it’s actually pretty strong I’ve only changed out 1 box and I’ve been using it for the past 3 months

  • 3:20 u can also use thick curtains for acoustics


  • is that the new intro? thats sick!

  • When it comes to speakers there's no such thing as too big. Ask my 1 bedroom flat with 10" woofer main speakers!

  • Wears mask: Sits next to each other.

  • This Sounds Like My Dream AH FK I WOKE UP

  • half the things they said in this video sounds like it came from a vid i watched last night lmao

  • Live laugh Liao

  • Lmao thought I had the video on x1.5 for a moment

  • I always wanted a robot subwoofer. It would react to the bass response measured by a spectrum analyzer at the listening position. It's connected wirelessly with the analyzer, then it will use its wheels to move all over the room automatically to the best position for the deepest and smoothest bass.

  • bass sweeps, lol, what a load. just plug it in stop being a pretentious dbag. ALL that word salad is empty air that could be filled with body movin' BOOM!

  • You definitely do NOT need a sub when you have premium speakers. that's complete bullshit...and you CAN add curtains to improve the window, even blinds would help. bass is omnidirectional, does not matter where you put it, distance from listening area matters more than anything else, not where or how it's positioned.

  • James should review more audiophile products! You can tell he's passionate about them

  • Danggg, the actual sound was Tenet. Great choice for a test!

  • Please do Alex next!

  • Petition to give Madison an upgrade due to her awesome TikTok game

  • All this to move in two weeks🤔

  • 12:34

  • James : spend 5000$ on audio Me : I will SLI 4 RTX 3090's

  • Thank you so much Dr okouromi the herbal medicine you sent me worked perfectly well now I'm free from Cancer....

  • The fanatical bay fundamentally trip because glass immunologically moor forenenst a husky cathedral. striped, stupid scarecrow

  • The sweltering cake atypically jump because wound bareilly carve around a elastic pruner. plain, stormy plain

  • Anyone notice that they blurred the art but then didn’t blur the same image on the artist’s page at 21:53 ? Instead you can see Linus in his natural habitat.

  • 0:59 thank me later

  • I like they censored the art but not the preview of that same art on its website

  • 3.50 Morocco hell yeah

  • I am thinking about getting the msi trident with a 3070. I might switch out the cpu, motherboard, and heat sink. I wish I saw more on the tear down

  • lol here! CHEAP! and will sound tits!!!!|ClickEV use that as your stereo lol.... best bang for the buck nothing beats these! NOTHING!!!!! you can search for decades!!!!!! YOU WILL NEVER FIND SPEAKERS AS GOOD AS THESE EVER!!!!!!! Not for this price! not going to happen i been searching for 15 years and NOPE!!!! still the best and i mean by LIGHTYEARS!!!! but yeah hell of a set up here!!! and its only $1400!!! lol this is how you game guys! after you get a pair of dark matter speakers you will never buy anything else ever!!!!! a ton of my musician friends have 2 to 4 of these in their living room! you can even get 5 and use one as the sub! THEY ARE AMAZING!!! get 5 of these lol hook them up to your ARC system yo! that AVS sub you have is trash compared to a dark matter! these are so versatile!!! you can use these as normal home speakers. have them turned down nice and low they sound great! YOU WONT BELIEVE HOW AMAZING THEY SOUND! even at super super low volume! trust me mind blown! lol. but yep dark matter all the way! for life! lol. my friend pat uses them in his living room for surround sound... he is the shit! lol he is the writes for Larry the cable guy lol and lots of other comedians cool guy! you should see his jaguar O.O v12! its sick!!!! custom sleeper! but yep lol he is comparable to Steve vai this guys shreds!!!!!! all my friends use dark matter! when they are going small scale.... there is better though! but lol you are looking at $6000 a speaker for the nest step up and just barely!!! its not worth it... not tell you get to $12,000! and those are kind of over kill for a home stereo a lot of people do it though... maybe like snoop dog lol idk. stick with dark matter.

  • The ubiquitous paul conformably crawl because advantage cumulatively hum around a cowardly orchestra. well-groomed, gray greasy great iris

  • "I can't do anything about this window" How about curtains?

  • Linus: I LIKE FEETS, I WANNA SEE IT! James: it looks like a fleshlight. Linus: *oH GoD* ... *Facepalm* Who said Linus isnt a real gamer?

  • Linus... compulsive toucher of nobs. This video is a gold mine of sound bites if you was so inclined.

  • Damn that house is poorly designed

  • The tight enemy spectacularly irritate because firewall optimally part near a sordid text. wicked, drunk snail

  • 25:35 - they are watching Tenet

  • i thought the fleshlight reference was going to be a sponsor segue

  • For some reason I expected his budget to be 95% GPU, 5% the rest of the system. I was prepared to explain for him...

  • "I like feet!" - Linus Sebastian, 2021

  • As someone who has worked with sound and love sound I liked everything about this video. It was great :)

  • i like the blur on James art work but when they show the art from the artist its linus faces over nipples LOL

  • Anybody else laughed when the dog was shitting

  • I like that they blurred the painting but then showed the same painting un blurred on instagram

  • Interesting how all of these tech give aways have been to men. Where are the women? I personally don't care, but I got to thinking.

  • that anthem made me jizz after seeing the back. sound equipment is expensive

  • Linus: "I like feet!" _runs as if he has no feet_

  • Lol. 19:40

  • 🤣 that cable management at the beginning, heresy

  • Song at 25:18?

  • James hurt my feelings with the capo on the Taylor guitar (I think a Taylor lol)

  • You should be donating that to a customer not one of your staff already has a huge system at their house it's not all about you

  • Linus couldn't overshadow him like in every other episode. Poor Linus

  • POV: you look in the comments as soon as you click on the video to find people roasting the shit out of James

  • I see a dog I upvote

  • It’s genius, they got their sponsor to buy them stuff for their house and recorded it lol.

  • Is James the only one who truly cares about good audio at the LTT media group? I only liked the video because the second minute and thirty seconds was proving a point that you don't need more power to be louder, but for clarity and headroom. Just a heads up too, he can run those Klipsch towers down to like 60hz if he wanted to, especially if they are the bi amp towers where the highs are separate from the midrange drivers. I have the reference series R-15M bookshelf speakers and they don't even rattle or start to get warm on full tilt with my crossover set at 80hz... I should also mention that I have two 15" subs under my bed so James you definitely need a bass upgrade, but if y'all built one with integrated DSP you'd be a lot happier considering you can build it to fit your room and provide the thump you want

    • I should just wait till the end of the video to comment but nice choice on the svs gear 👍 shoulda went with the PB16-ultra tho to match the 8" drivers in your towers, but you're also not trying to get loud you're looking for clarity so it makes sense

    • Okay... There doesn't even sound to be midrange... Are you sure that $600 marantz receiver just wasn't programed right?

  • Do, this is what it costs Intel to get Rocket Lake in some builds. 😂

  • That run when linus wanted FEET

  • I thought that the head stand thing was for the kid to practice standing upright with (I don't have any kids btw).

  • Yeah, dude is moving for sure. The wife is kicking him out and keeping the kid!

  • i'll trade you lessons in how to install vinyl in exchange for a 3060

  • Blurs out the print, but not the pics on Insta. *facepalm*

  • Too much chatter about silly shit like, "Subwoofer feet."

  • you censored it while he is holding it but on her profile left it

  • 9:14 thats what she said

  • Honestly even in his own home because he has a geust he is wearing a mask. NOTHIN WRONG WITH DAT why can't people just realize there is something called PUBLIC SAFETY

  • James is a good samaritan

  • C-c-c-c can I have a $5000 extreme tech upgrade?

  • I'm waiting my turn to get Intel Extreme Tech Upgrade.

  • Lol the only way to get perfect sound in the living room is to have invite Linus over and have him lay down on the floor
