I was able to view the Vizio 75" M series, the Sony 850, and 940. The Vizio was a great picture but the 850 edged it slightly in detail...the 940 was just more fluid.


I did like the 850 and...

Re: Need advice on 70-75" tv

I'm starting to lean this way, as I'm sure near the holidays they will likely be at a great price.

I don't need the latest and greatest, I would like at least a Sony 850 in terms of PQ but the 940...

I did think about a projector...good idea btw, but my light covered walls and a sliding glass door facing the wall with the screen makes it a no-go.

After I started the thread I read up on the new...

Re: Need some REW setup help with Win 10

Looking at those 2 measurements, the waterfall seems to be pretty solid out to 300ms, is that normal for a room like mine? Doesn't look to taper off much, also how can I accurately read the RT60...

Re: Need some REW setup help with Win 10

That seemed to do the trick, removing the sound card cal file with the USB mic. Here's a before and after measurement.

Re: Need some REW setup help with Win 10

I had to shove off to work, but I will try again tomorrow. I am using a USB mic so I will try without the file as well as look into the calibration.

Thanks.

Re: Analyzing different smoothing graphs
