After a crappy 2 weeks of hospital & ambulances, feeling sorry for myself & not touching anything retro related, the son cheered me up with the gift of another complete setup, it's been living at his workplace for quite a while and then boxed up & stored.
Shelf building planned for the monitor later this afternoon, bit low for me to use as it is, multiplayer Wipeout fury is running on the projector & the eldest son is over for the afternoon... nothings getting done 😁
Like wise I have to have my screens at eye level where possible for best viewing. If it's a tad lower one trick it to put something under the front of the screen to make it tilt towards you, like a PC monitor.
This little gear4 speaker is neat as it does "not" contain the pain in the arse rechargeable battery that they all have now! It comes with a mains adapter and you can even use normal batteries to power it. 3.5 audio-in jack on the back, vol up/down & power on the top. Easy to use and easy to move about if you have other machines and screens. From C64, Amiga, Megadrive, Sega Saturn, PSone and even a classic XBOX the sound is just about right for that localized arcade machine style sound/music when your sat on top of the screen. Bass is about right, nice and clear and wont annoy the other half who might be in a room next door watching TV.
New they were £40 each. Sainsburys used to sell them but that was like 3 years ago if memory serves correct, replaced by a slightly bigger rechargeable version...
So you can get an idea on size here's one of mine, not too big, not too small either. On the face of the speaker next to the G by the gear4 logo I put a little black sticky foam pad on it as that's where the blue LED power light is. It now has a slight blue glow instead of a bright light, and I can still see if it's on or not.
Nice compact sound solution you have there, I'm planning on using this Pioneer unit for now, there's a pair of small Wharfedale diamonds in a box somewhere around here along with a tiny mixer, I'll pick up another little tri-amp or such like to power them.

blackbird: Does anybody have a link to the graphic framework from which the carousel is made with?
May 26, 2021 17:22:04 GMT
spannernick: The Carousel made with Flashlight and C, its a library for Linux but no documentation on it, if you search for it with Google is only comes up with the one made by Facebook and that not it.

blackbird: Are you sure that is name is Flashlight? Found "Fast Light Toolkit" aka "FLTK" which sounds very similar.
May 28, 2021 17:44:50 GMT
blackbird: FLTK (pronounced "fulltick") is a cross-platform C++ GUI toolkit for UNIX®/Linux® (X11), Microsoft® Windows®, and MacOS® X. FLTK provides modern GUI functionality without the bloat and supports 3D graphics via OpenGL® and its built-in GLUT emulation.
