I should have taken more pictures of this build, but I did most of the assembly in a hurry one night after the rest of the family was in bed. Anyway, I had a full marty with a Dayton classic 15 that sounded amazing but I was suffering from massive room gain in one corner and the inability to...
We are constructing an editing room that may need to do some audio premixing etc. Its not a very high end audio setup - that may come later - but its fairly good electronically. However I'm pretty beginner when it comes to acoustics, even though I learned a bit in my University.

I'm wondering how widespread the HDMI board failures are among different manufacturers and would like to know if this has been solved or if there's been no real progress. I've had 2 Onkyos, 3 generations apart, fail like clockwork at 2 years. Naturally, I've done a lot of looking online for...
As the new Ultra HD Blu-ray players were announced last fall, I found myself breathing a sigh of relief. Physical media is going to live to see another day, I thought. It’s all in the bag for at least a few more years.
Or is it?
We’ve known for quite some time that the physical media sphere...

The annual Capital Audiofest has solidified itself as the premier destination for audiophiles and gearheads in the Mid-Atlantic region. Its importance to the Baltimore-Washington Metro area certainly can’t be oversold, as there’s a noticeable dearth in area Hi-Fi retailers, making the festival...
Hello everyone. I was wondering if minidsp is appropriate for a reasonably high end two channel system. I listen to vinyl and cd. The system is a Cary CDP, Michell Orbe turntable, Herron phono stage, Supratek pre, Bryston amp and B&W 802 speakers. Is the minidsp of the same quality?
I’ve been sitting on some really nice (I think?) car stereo gear for 10-12 years now, and I’ve finally given up on the idea that I’ll ever get the motivation to do another installation myself, as I did in times past. So I’m looking towards having a system put in my 2003 Town Car, probably next...
Why is it that people select Hi End speakers vs PA style speakers? When you go to a Concert they are using PA Speakers for the voice, and instruments... Not High End speakers. Wouldn't it be more like the original sound to use PA Speakers?
