  1. System Setup and Connection
    I had recently bought new Yamaha Receiver HTR-3067 and Pioneer AJ-5235xt 5.1 speaker, and connected to LG LF6300 Smart LED Full HD TV. Now, when I am playing any content through TV, I am not getting 5.1 Surround effect from rear speakers. It is giving 2.1 effect through 5.1 speaker. Can...

    Just found this very well laid out page on boundary effect, phase cancellation and speaker placement. http://arqen.com/acoustics-101/speaker-placement-boundary-interference/ I have always been a strong advocate of room treatment and speaker placement as the most effective methods of addressing...

    Hi I had considerable success in time and phase aligning in REW, particularly in aligning wrapped and unwrapped phase at the crossover points. What is really interesting is the taking of measurements at three distances - 1 meter, 2 meters and 3 meters from the speakers and evaluating the...

    Hello, I am using REW v5.01 Beta 20 in windows 8.1. I use Acourate to generate FIR filters that are then used in the JRiver convolver. Is it possible to measure the room response already corrected by the Acourate filter? I would like to measure it (keeping mic, etc, fixed) so I can compare...
  6. System Setup and Connection
    I am in the process of making some changes to my system. I recently bought a new Panasonic zt65 Plasma to replace my old Sony rear projection TV, but with that I am now repainting the room and possibly having a console built to put in front of the TV that will be mounted on the wall. I am...

    Hello, i am an avid game player as well as blu ray watcher. Love hi def stuff. Last night i was playing mass effect 3 and in one of the final battles had serious reference level capabilities for showing off a system. I was playing the Call to Arms scene near the end, where you mobilize all the...

    Okay it's been quite some time since I've had a look at any potential improvements to my home cinema. Not that I am unhappy in any way it's just as a tweaker I am always looking to squeeze every last ounce of improvement from my system just for the fun of it :) I would love to hear your ideas...
  9. Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hello. I am very new to this whole equalization thing. However I recently purchased a BFD and have used REW to come up with equalization settings which I have input to the BFD. I have just now done a measurement with BFD and a measurement in bypass they are literally identical.
  10. Home Audio Acoustics
    Hello all- I recently finished my IB setup in my house (6 18'' FICAR). Although I'm still working through some issues, the sound is amazing--except for one issue. My sitting locating seems to be the one place where I can notice a drop in SPL (db). No, I have not tested with meters or used REW...

    Hi all! My first post in this forum. Seems to be a really nice place! Im thinking of buying the 50PA6500. What i would like to know about this plasma, is that if it has the truMotion feeling? (soap opera effect) I think that trueMotion is the worst thing that could happen to a movie, and i...

    I'm in the final stage of my dedicated HT build - it's roughly a 21'x16' room. I currently have Linacoustic floor to ceiling everywhere except for on the walls to the side of the 2nd-row, where there's Dacron batting above the chair rail. There's also a couple superchunk bass traps in the rear...

    I've read that stand-mounted monitor speakers (many of which are called, ironically, bookshelf speakers) should be mounted some distance away from the back wall when used as L & R speakers. I've also read that there should be some space between them and the side walls as well. What is the...

    I probably missed it from the tutorials, but after measuring and creating my filters for the room, how can I check the effect? Is there a way to remeasure the room with filtered sweeps?

    I apologize if this is the inappropriate place to ask this since it is mostly off-topic, but I didn't want to start an unnecessary thread if this is easily answered. I looked for this for a bit, but didn't find an answer. Gain. I understand that we are limited by the laws of physics/...

    I have this older Pioneer that I'm having a problem finding info on(last time I looked). When the reciever was given to me, it didn't have a remote. So I went out and bought a Harmony after researching Pioneer's weird IR setup. Anywho, the remote let me set up the Pioneer. Its nice to have...

    Battlefield 3 to Include Mass Effect 3 Demo Early Access I guess EA is taking cues from Sony in terms of promoting its games these days. The company is heavily promoting its so-called Call of Duty-killer, Battlefield 3, which is scheduled to release on October 25 in North America. As an...

    Hi, I got the Onkyo 608 from year 2010. I got the onkyo connected to my PC with 2 displays and the onkyo also on a second display adapter on a DVI port (DVI->HDMI cable). When the amp has been on for long, I suddenly hear a big relay switch and then all my computer screens turn black. This afaik...
