Building the Ultimate Gaming Setup

Hey guys, this is Austin, and this is The Ultimate Gaming Setup 20

So, big shout out to LG for sponsoring this video and letting us build this awesome setup The star of the show is the new SJ9 Sound Bar I end up using sound bars a lot, not only for my personal setup, but here in the office The big reason for that is that while my full surround sound system sounds nice, I don't know I'm always a little bit nervous about like, annoying my neighbors about stuff, whereas with a sound bar, I actually feel a lot better about being able to just crank the volume and not have to worry about it

This is a lot bigger than stuff I usually unbox We've got the remote, and the sound bar So Ken measured this and the sound bar should be pretty much the exact width of not only the TV, but the stand After looking at this giant box, I was expecting the sound bar to be bigger What's cool about this, is it actually has some top firing speakers for Atmos support

I'm not totally sure how well this space is going to work with Atmos The idea is that to get a little bit more of a surround sound feel, and not only is it sending sound at you, but it's also bouncing sound off of the ceiling, which in theory should give you a much more surround sound This is actually a lot thinner than I thought it was going to be So, (laughs) will it actually fit? Looks like it's gonna be close Oh! All right, you know what? Props to Ken, this actually fits literally perfectly

It actually touches both edges, but it doesn't go over That's actually pretty cool We also have in the middle of this, a subwoofer, which is not small All right, so that whole thing about not being able to annoy the neighbors I take it back

All right So I may have slightly misjudged how big this was It still should fit with the setup though So, we're actually gonna be doing some interesting stuff beyond just the sound part of our gaming setup So Ken has spent the last couple days building this

So essentially it's a way of getting the TV off the table and actually floating So not only does that mean that we have plenty of clearance for our speaker, but because of this cool design of having a couple pieces of wood here with the mount, we can actually also just move the TV easily So the setup is actually starting to come together, but we have a lot of work to do, as you might be able to tell So, montage time! (electronic music) So after a frantic afternoon of work, we have the setup, and it actually looks pretty good So, there's a lot going on here

But to start, we actually have the TV Paired with the SJ9 Sound Bar is a 55 inch LG E6 TV So not only is this OLED, but it also supports 4K and HDR Almost more important than resolution though, is that OLED display Seriously, a good OLED TV looks so, so good

Completely puts everything else to shame But, paired with the SJ9 I'm excited to see, more importantly hear, what it sounds like – Hey guys, it's Austin My voice might be gone, but what isn't is the MacBook Air Why does this still exist in 2017? – All right, that actually sounds pretty good

So the SJ9, not only are we getting that subwoofer, which is way, way bigger than I had thought, but we also have the speakers inside here that gives it the 51 surround, and the two top firing speakers So the way we've got this set up is that we have the PS4 Pro connected to the TV, so we're getting full 4K HDR there, and then the TV is passing audio into the SJ9 via HDMI That means that not only can we control everything from one spot, but we're also getting the best audio quality What's cool about this setup is that the actual subwoofer itself is wireless

So besides needing to plug it in, this is a nice, clean setup And, speaking of the setup, as you can see Savage Kenny has been hard at work So, not only do we have Waifus, but we also have cool stuff too So we've got our Pipboy action, more Waifus because, this is Ken's setup Sometimes I have to deal with Waifus in order to get a really cool setup

I feel that's a pretty fair trade We also have our shelf full of Nintendo stuff, including the NES Classic, the Game Boy Color that I unboxed a couple years ago, as well as the Famicom, which is actually something we did a video on and never posted And on this side, we have another slightly more adorable Waifu, some Lego stuff, thanks to Jimmy, we got a Delorean, PS3, Xbox It's a cool setup, but all this stuff on the side, is just for show What really counts is what we have inside the console

If you're wondering why I'm standing, it's because there was a certain malfunction with the couch, and it's now in eight pieces right beside Ken Wa-wa-wa That sub is actually scaring me a little bit right now I feel like this is about to actually be loud (laughs) Yo! That sounds stupid

Can you even hear me right now? Okay, so this is actually really loud (laughs) That sub has such a punch I've never heard a sound bar sound like this I am 100% surprised You know what it sounds like, especially with that bass? This is gonna sound like a really weird comparison, it sounds like listening to a movie theater

Like it has that huge just punch Okay, so we didn't quite have time to get everything wired up yet Even playing on the Xbox One at 1080o it looks nice It does sound good too – A few moments later

– The neighbors literally just knocked (laughs) All right, I'll turn it down, I'll turn it down I just love the story of this video We started out by saying I like using sound bars because they don't annoy the neighbors Then it got really loud and annoyed the neighbors, and now we got complaints

(laughs) Little tip guys, don't crank your sound bar up to 100% volume when you're doing a video (laughs) To be fair, that tells you that it actually is really loud In case you were doubting me, it's, that's pretty good proof
