    Pretty much my dream setup. Almost exactly what I plan to fill my studio with once I land my dream job. iMac Pro fully specced, Macbook Pro fully specced, a Hasselblad cameras for photography, RED Helium 8K video camera. iPad Pro for chillin', Now get some Kii Audio Three / Snell / meyer sound speakers (maybe even Devialet Phantoms) and Audeze LCD4/STAX009/Focal Utopia headphones with a Woo Audio amp and you're 100%

    Jesus christ your setup is amazing. Can I just say THANK YOU for actually spending money on audio. There's nothing worse for me than seeing geeks who spend $10k on their "ULTIMATE GAMING SETUP" and then they have a Steelseries headset and some 50 dollar Logitech 5.1. The sennheiser HD800s is an excellent choice! Though I MUCH prefer the sound of either STAX L700 or Audeze LCD-X. They cost about $2000 each and require the same amount spent on an amp. Best I've ever heard are STAX SR-009 and Focal Utopia (about $5000 each) give em a try!

    You talked about how there are two ways to watch setup your videos and one of those ways is "gathering inspiration from different parts" of it and adapting your own setup. Well, I took inspiration in a slightly different way and made a video tour of my own editing setup on my channel... because it's so terrible and causes maximum friction in turning footage into videos. Call it a parody if you like but it was fun to make 😂😂

    make sure you use a grounded mouse pad. good for your health, especially around all that EHF and WiFI signals. It makes your red blood cells move up to 15 times faster and therefor your body's own natural healing process. they actually move 15 times slower when not grounded which is humans normal state in nature. keep up the good work.

    Sennheiser HD800 flat? Sort of. Those in NO WAY compare to Beryerdynamic DT880. The reason why people get the 800's are because the look pretty, it shows off that you can afford the, and yes, they do sound good...BUT for mixing and mastering and simple video editing audio...dude, the ugly ass DT880s are what million dollar recording studios use. Every huge recording studio uses them. This dude...

    Those look like HS5s rather than HS8s. I guess it'the wide anlge lens you're using really makes them look small?

    I currently have no laptop at my disposal and I am itching to get either MBP 13 *no touch* or 15 *with touch*. I am unsure whether wait for June or simply buy a 13'' temporarily

    Hey Marques!
    I've watch your iMac Pro introduction and you got me sold there!
    However I am struglling with the right configuration and since it is big chunk of my money, I wanted to ask you for an advice.
    I am about to invest into iMac Pro and I would be super grateful for your insight / help as I am strugling little bit.
    I am definitely buying iMac Pro with better GPU (Pro Vega 64), but I can't decide if the next and only upgrade should be 10core CPU or 64GB RAM? I am worried that CPU is not later upgradeable but also I am not planing, nor can I afford to do another upgrade in about 5 years and I am worried 32GB RAM won't be enough, especially for Fusion.
    The use of this computer is mainly DaVinci Resolve (both editing and CC), which would mean the 10core CPU.
    But I am beginner in DaVinci Fusion and starting 2018 I really want to push this skill. Thats where I thought that upgrading RAM might be smarter then upgrading CPU.
    Other uses are Lightroom and Photoshop, but I am 100% sure that even the basic config is enough for that.
    But the Fusion is where it is messing me up.
    Please would you share your opinion?
    I am lost where else to study on this topic and due to long delivery dates I need to make this decission asap so I have this machine for my next planned job.
    Thanks in advance!
    All the best from Prague
    ps.: pardon my english. It's not my first language.
