  1. REW Forum
    I posted the response below at Emotiva's website, but I thought I'd post here as I'm looking for more technical experience for my learning benefit (I'm an EE although audio isn't my concentration). I am interested in improving my system even more, but I suspect I crossed the diminishing returns...
  2. Home Audio Acoustics
    I just found this video that compares a few of the different types and I found it interesting as to which I actually liked. I have run absorber before and diffusers but never actually compared them like they do on the video... I found that after listening I actually prefered the Diffusers much...

    I am doing measurement comparison among CLIO, REW and ARTA. CLIO system is widely used in the industry. It is not very expensive from a company view point, but expensive to DIY or tiny firms. I would like to see how REW and ARTA compared to the CLIO system. I will use miniDSP UMIK-1 USB mic to...
  4. REW Forum
    I asked this in the wrong forum, so I'll ask here... Is there a relatively reliable way of comparing two broadband absorbers using REW? I'm only interested in how they differ in my room, perhaps at varying locations. EDIT: To add, the room is a tracking, mixing/monitoring, and listening...
  5. Home Audio Acoustics
    I'm wondering if there is a method of comparing two broadband absorbers, for example, against one another using REW? Will the measurements actually give me relevant data? As an example, I recently measured two broadband absorbers against each other, and took more measurements with no absorbers...
  6. Home Audio Speakers
    Thanks for your assistance. Replacing home theatre speakers. Due to entertainment wall unit going in, will not be able to use towers. I have been looking at and have gotten previous recommendations on the following choices: 1. Yamaha NS-333 2. Infinity Primus P162 3. Klipsch XB-10 4. SVS...

    Hello, Hard time comparing Samsung UN55C6300SF and UN55C6500VF. I can't go any more expensive then these models. Question #1: The 6500 offers 5,000,000:1 vs. the 4,000,000:1. Does this make a big enough difference? Question#2: The 6500 offers internet connectability. But, does that matter...
  8. REW Forum
    I just finished construction of a new set of monitor stands. my old stands were cinder blocks and i wondered if the new stands might effect the sound. so i took some readings with REW. i used the program maybe a year ago and found the waterfall chart to be the most helpful. correct me if i'm...

    When using REW to compare say:left channel to right channel etc...how accurately does REW match the the measurements to the target level of 75dB and to each other?Are they just matched to a 1Khz centered band limited pink noise level the way the processor/reciever internal tones are used to get...

    I am wondering if there is a product out there that I can purchase to compare 2 speakers to eachother? As in switching on the fly between the two without loosing to much audio quality. I know they make speaker selectors that are big boxes, but I really only need a basic circuitry board with a...
  11. Home Theater Projectors
    I have been following the discussions on projection viewing and though I do not own one, I am curious to know from those of you that do whether a 1080p resolution on a LCD/Plasma/DLP is comparable to the 1080p image from a 1080p projector, all things being equal.
  12. SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Hi, Has anyone compared CALIBRATED microphones or know of websites that have? There are a number of places who will calibrate microphones or sell calibrated ones but I've never seen any tests comparing the results. I've often wondered what our hard earned calibration money is really buying us...
  13. Home Audio Subwoofers
    I currently have an SVS 25-31 PC and am kind of tired of the "look" of it. Also I was calibrating my system on Sat and there are some HUGE peaks and valleys in my room (the sub is also corner loaded and for some reason I can hear the direction the bass is coming from. I have the crossover set...
  14. REW Forum
    Hi Guys, Got my new CM-140 today and laid it side by side with my RS 33-2055 Digital. Played a number of test tones (sine waves) from 30 Hz to 5000 hz and noticed that the SPL levels at different frequencies vary as much as 20 db! Could this be a bad meter? Which one? I'll try to chart them...
