Re: Price Check: How much is my _____ worth?

I might be off currently, but when I looked into these kinds of Alps, it was roughly $0.5-1 per switch depending on condition.

That's a weak definition of "better".

You're missing the point… How can it be that physical objects, just by being in proximity to your gear’s circuitry, influence audio reproduction?

Re: Objective reasons for using a mechanical keyboard

What types of switches allow you to make anything like this?

Well, they have to be discrete and easy to work with. In practice, that's Cherry MX/clones or Alps SK/clones.

Keyboards have drastically dropped in price... Also, this may not actually be all that correct. It's absolutely correct, if you look at median cost.

Ah would make sense. Caps are really short and weird so it makes me wonder what kind of switch they used
Most likely proprietary spring over membrane. Very quiet, but also kind of squishy in my experience.

…unless there's another model with an entirely different switch design.
