  1. DIY Repair and Maintenance
    I'm partway through the process of installing a cctv video surveillance system for my girlfriend. Last day, I mounted it in a location that points across the entrance to her garden. The camera shows the view of the area. There is an open sky at the top of the scene. Now, at this time of the...

  3. DIY Screens
    I want a DIY 120" fixed screen that can be easily put up and taken down for storage, transport, and so little kids can't damage it when it's not being used. I know the main approach recommended here is painting. This won't work for me because there's a window in the middle of the wall where I...

    I own a Denon 4311Ci Receiver. It has a function called "Direct". I am trying to figure out what that does. When it is in that mode I know it puts it in 2 channel stereo. What I do not know is when it is in this mode does it mean that it is true stereo? Are all the calibration setting of...

  6. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    OK, this was a really dumb thing to do. I purchased an old Marantz 74SR770/02 (commonly called a SR-770) as I was going to use the front pre-outs to connect to speakers on another amp. I didn't bother to look at what inputs the Marantz has and I now see that for surround sound it only has...

  8. Two Channel Audio
    I have a Denon 4311ci and am having a hard time getting, what i think, a good 2 channel stereo sound. Is it best to use the Audyssey correction during playback or to use the Direct mode? Notice that in the speaker evals that there was no room correction done! Of course the room, in the evals...

    If I set the "IR window" so that it starts to the right of the main impulse response, say from 300ms out to 1s, would the resulting FR plot show only the room's response (i.e.,minus the direct response)? Could that plot then be used to easily see what room treatment is required (Bass trap...
