Hey, new member. Not sure where to post this, whether it be in member polls or here. someone mentioned this place on r/hardware awhile ago. I just wanna say thanks for any help.


I'm not sure what next big upgrade I wanna do in terms of peripherals, I'm in a pickle. I bought an dell u2211h about 3 years ago, and about 2 years ago I purchased my first cherry keyboard and fiio e7.

Recently, the Monoprice Monitor that rivals the koreans is going for $350 on massdrop. Thats pretty swell, I've wanted 2k for years now, but I feel 27" isn't that big an upgrade. I feel like either getting a 21:9 29" or a 1600p 30" when they go down in price. i also want one where I can rotate the monitor from portrait to landscape, like my u2211h.

My little fiio served me well through hundreds if not thousands of hours of listening, but for $80 I expected a little longer than close to 2 years. What the heck! I think I might buy a dac or a dac plus amp (not really driving anything that high in impedence). I'm looking at either an ODAC or the Audioquest Firefly or the Schitt Magni/Modi combo

My cherry is pretty cool, but I feel like trying something besides browns. The leopold Topre keyboard with PBT caps are 10 key less, which suck D: but I am quite enticed by it. I really do like browns, and I also like blues a lot. But I wanna try something else now. The topres, either the Leopold or the HHKB are my top choices.

And finally, I've always wanted an SSD, built computers for others with one, but never bought one. I want a 512gb atleast, nothing else will do, but even with the Samsung EVo it is an expensive proposition.

I've limited myself to only one upgrade, and any advice from you guys would be appreciated.


Edit: besides the poll, any answer would be appreciated too in terms of advice. Thank you

Im really leaning towards the Leopold or the ODAC, but really it could swing either way
