  1. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I would like to know the opinion of the forum between the av7005 and av8003 processor. I do not know if any thing has change in sound. I like SACD and music concert videos.
  2. DIY Speakers
    Normally if you want to hear an active crossover, you have to buy it and set it up in your system and you probably won't get the chance to compare. Well, a chance came up to get together with some others and do some comparisons. Thought you guys might be interested in the results. We compared...
  3. Pro Audio
    Test made with an Orange Tiny Terror 15W all tube amp driving an Orange cabined loaded with a Celestion V30. The guitar used is a Charvel mod 6 with Floyd Rose and a Seymour Duncan Jeff Beck humbucker. I used an 8ch preamplifier: ELBERG MP8. The test is done with: GrooveTubes a1, Shure SM57...
  4. Creative Sound Solutions
    I was speaking to The gentleman at CSS and he said to post this up here. I was wondering how the sdx15 in a sealed 3.5 cu. ft enclosure compares to the trio 12 kit for HT only. I have a larger room with vaulted ceiling. The trio is powered with the modified bash 500 and the sdx15 would be...
  5. DIY Screens

  7. DIY Speakers
    On another forum I participate in there was a discussion of if it was needed to warm up a driver before measuring its T/S to derive proper specifications. To dispel this myth I spent some time taking some relatively in depth measurements. Using a calibrated WT3 and a Dayton RS150 I took 5...
  8. Home Audio Speakers
    Hello. New member here. I was hoping some of you folks might chime in with your opinions about these two speaker setups, or suggest something else that can be had for $1,300 of equal or better quality. Please note that I appreciate a "bright" speaker for my bookshelfs, and have listened to...
  9. Home Theater System Recommendations
    Hey, well this will be my first post :) I'm looking to set up a home theater and I've been to a couple of places in town that sell higher end systems. I'm looking for something better than a Best Buy option, but not to spend too much (I realize TV + Receiver for me will be about 5k, so 7k...
  10. General Screen Discussion
    As I'm embarking on what can probably be called my most painstaking screen shootout. I'm wondering if there's any input as to what you'd like to see? Or if everything I've done in the past will be good enough - scene/show-wise. As some of you may or not be aware, there was recently a...
  11. REW Forum
    Thought some of the more knowledgeable REW members would like to see this post and add their own take. See the complete review of SPL meters and other high end gear in the link below, no actual data. His very brief summation of REW's performance and mention of "marketing department" left me...
