I have been thinking of moving my equipment (turntables, mixer, speakers) to my garage to create more space in my house.

 

Wondering if this is the best idea due to weather changes.  I will not be storing my vinyl in the garage. Just the electronics.

 

I have seen videos of djs in different states do this, but they may not have as much humidity as my state has.

 

Thoughts???

That's what I was thinking... it gets pretty hot and humid in Louisiana. Could you put a window unit or shop AC in there? 

 

I think it will be fine TBH but I'd at least put a big box fan in there to have airflow. 


 Have you considered getting an RME?

I wouldn't do it.  Humidity is bad for electronics.

Just remember - food twice a day, a clean water bowl, regular exercise and Frontline once a month. A wife is for life not just for Christmas!

This thead is genuinely almost word-for-word exactly the same as a Jim Davidson routine my mate's dad had on VHS.

I can’t help too much due my foreveralone condition as I stated before...
But common sense makes me wonder about oxide fullfilling each single gap you don’t cover properly 24/7.

The day I get my own robotic wife I will live with her in the garage probably. I’m obsessed with maintance and get oiled all the rails the most as I can. ITOH it will be a great video for Andy’s boring job vlog... :smirk:

Agreed. I urge you all to destroy your equipment immediately. It's just holding you back. Try using one piece of equipment to bludgeon another piece of equipment to speed up the process.
