It has been a long time since my last setup tour. Since then I have moved offices and upgraded almost all of my gear in that time.
Instead of focusing on a specific area, I took a look at my entire office. The PC Desk, Home Theater, Build Station, and Retro gaming area. Each area has been designed to serve a specific purpose, and I think I accomplished exactly what I set out to do.

PC Desk Setup
My desktop is the culmination of a lot of research over the last few months. I wanted a sit stand desk that was sturdy and attractive, along with a wide and deep desktop.
I ended up going with Mono Price Sit Stand Legs, and an 80″x32″ slab door for the desktop. Using a door allowed me to get a table top that was the right size, color, and thickness.

Home Theater Setup
My home theater is still a work in progress but it more then gets the job done. I use it primarily to watch 4k Blu-ray movies, and sports. I also run an active HDMI cable from my PC that allows me to play games at 4K/60Hz. The LG OLED offers the best image quality of any TV I’ve ever seen. It’s truly stunning.
For audio I have an older Definitive Technology 5.2 speaker system. The system still works well but will probably be the next thing I upgrade.

Retro Gaming Station
I put together a little retro gaming nook for all of my classic systems. This area is definitely the most lightly used section of my office, but its great when I just want to take a trip back in time.
Workstation & Build Section
Often when doing PC builds for the website and channel I would find myself in need of space. So I dedicated the wall opposite of my desk to this workspace. I have six drawers for storage and a table to do my builds and videos.
