    Same over here m8. I’m often shocked to see how much dust I collect on my rig and direct surrounding.

    I just bought a Dali Sub E 12f subwoofer and the Dali Oberon Vokal centre speaker as an extension of the recently bought Dali Oberons 7.
    Very happy with this Black Friday deal. Got €350 discount. That is what I call a Black Friday deal.

    My man cave is in the cellar, which although not damp, is extremely dusty, so yours looks like the inside of the Apple factory compared to mine.

    This is for 27" triples but I had my 40" single this close also, before this I had that 40" similar to yours and coming closer made it so much more life like. Feels more "in the car"

    Edit: my room is dark AF and i don't notice that DUST !! Oh crap do i need to dust this room
    I personally don't like as close as possible. I try to keep my monitor close to about the same distance as real windshield from my eyes. Which normally is right at the end of my finger tips.

    But seriously, with my screens 56cm from my eyes it really is about arms reach, pretty close to the distance to my real cars dash ! I'm not sure how far away people sit to their wheel but my arms are belt at almost 90 degrees when sitting in my rig and with my arm outstretched my i could almost lay my fist (punch) on the screens, almost, and sitting in my real car i can rest my outstretched fingers on the edge of my dash .

    I run with mine close up, right behind my wheel base. It's probably the best way to get the widest fov in the smallest space.

    Probably should have waited for it to get cheaper. But, I decided to go ahead and buy it. Might still be a little while before I play it. Maybe before 9 gets released on Steam and 10 gets released at the same time on Epic.

    With no real Thanksgiving festivities this year, I finally got back to setting up the sim room this weekend. Tables in place, LED lighting run. The drawers are even lit from the inside.

    I'm not going to actually say anything about this, rule wise (because I know better), but I'm curious to see how long it takes for an understanding to set in.

    Blue = Available -- Just practice or casual racing.

    Red = Not Available -- Sh#t has gotten serious. Keep out!
