  1. Question for John about "Q" definition for PEQ of different HW

    REW Forum
    Hi John, Apologies in advance for the lengthy post. I wrote a software program that makes extensive use of PEQ filters for sub EQ in the modal region. In order for the user's final measurements to match software predictions after running the software and entering calculated filter parameters...

  7. SVS Driver Size Definition

    I received a notification via email that steve1616 had posted about concerns with how SVS defines its loudspeaker driver size. I tried to find that note here, and it has apparently been deleted. Anyway, I wanted to clarify how we define driver size anyway. Industry standard has nominal...

  9. Definition of WAF

    Chat Box SWAMP
    I had someone ask me today what the definition of WAF was. This is what I came up with; "Wife Acceptance Factor," "An unknowable constant that determines the amount of peace in a household after the husband purchases a toy." What is your definition? Paul
  10. Formula 1 could see high definition broadcasts (except for in-car cameras) next year

    In our last crazy Bernie Ecclestone update, the F1 boss had suggested we could be two years away from high definition Formula 1 broadcasts, but since then he's apparently indicated it could happen as soon as next year. Last week, he apparently told German media that he's "not sure" whether...
  11. F1 boss Ecclestone says no high definition feed until 2012

    Bad news for Formula One fans worldwide, as Bernie Ecclestone told the media we will likely have to wait until 2012 to get a glimpse of the racing series in high definition. Trailing every other autosport federation we can think of, and nearly every sport in existence, F1 spent the weekend...
  12. Snow White Blu Ray and Standard Definition review

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    Actually this above title is inaccurate. I cannot review the Blu-Ray of Disney's "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" at this point in time. Why? Because after an endless array of promos and trailers, the menu will not allow me to access the actual feature on my Samsung Blu Ray player. I need...
  13. "Easy Rider" in 'high' definition

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    If you watch the new Blu-Ray of "Easy Rider" as a conventional narrative feature film and wonder why there isn't a plot you'll be missing the point. This isn't a 'movie' as most people would define it but a time capsule of attitudes and lifestyles of the late sixties. As I noted in my title...
  14. Mastering a film in high definition

    AV Home Theater
    I previously posted my experience mixing in the 5.1 format so I thought I'd mention mastering my movie, "What Really Frightens You" in high definition for those who are interested in the technical process of releasing a film on video. I shot the film in 35mm and it's in four reels (80 minutes)...
  15. Standard Definition on High Def discs...

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    I know that seems to defeat the purpose of High Def media... but I am talking about storage here. Not just disc storage, but our own personal shelf storage. I have many TV series on DVDs and each season takes up a lot of space. So here's the question... Would you buy a full season in SDVD...
  16. catch words and your definition.

    AV Home Theater
    I have been reading a lot of reviews, forum opinions and similar rhetoric on speakers and amps both DIY and off the shelf. What I seem to be reading a lot of recently are undefined adjectives like transparency, soundstage, detail, speed, etc. What I am slowely getting anoyed with is that this...

  18. How much definition do you need?

    AV Home Theater
    Some might think 7.1 channels of sound and 1920x1080p would be enough, but not those inscrutable folks at NHK: Ultra High Definition has been developed by Japanese broadcaster NHK in conjunction with the Victor Company of Japan, Keisoku Giken, Astrodesign, Ikegame Tsuchinki, Fujinon and Micron...
