  1. Question about REW automatic equalization

    REW Forum
    Hi! I've recently bought an UMIK-1 to properly measure audio related stuff. I have a pair of AudioEngine A2 connected to my PC and they had pretty bad bass resonance.

    This will be a rather longer post to give some background. In a nutshell, what I'm seeking is alternatives to the miniDSP DDRC-22D. I have nothing against the DDRC-22D, but usually I like more than one option when considering a purchase. If you choose to read further, I would appreciate any...

    Audio Processing
    I have just purchased a Behringer DEQ2496 expecting to do all the equalizing externally. I am now debating if it is just more simple to use the DSP capability in JRiver for all equalizing, especially when you can be more accurate with the filter setting in JRiver compared to the 2496. With...

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    Digital now reins supreme, even if it will be a long time before they (the guys who think cables matter) agree. I recently upgraded to an Onkyo PR-SC5508 processor, that breaks the equalization down into much smaller and therefore accurate segments (Audyssey MultEQ® XT32), and that measures...
