  1. Feel the Love of Digitized Vinyl!

    CD-BD-DVD Music | Vinyl Records
    C'mon now, admit it: those beautifully tactful albums are taking up too much space and you really, really want to free some of it up by digitizing some or all of your collection. But you'd rather not give up the "character" that makes vinyl so attractive to you. So how do you translate those...

    New Member Introductions
    Wow, Your site must have experienced some serious problems for all the rules and disclaimers we're supposed to read. Anyway I'm interested mostly in omnidirectional speakers and vintage gear but I'm also a believer in new tech too. I've been fairly serious about decent music for maybe 10 years...
  3. Why can't I feel engines watching racing?

    AV Home Theater
    I have always been a racing fan and recognize a major difference in the experience of being at a race and watching a race on tv is the feeling of those engines thundering. Now I have a dual subwoofer setup including an HSU VTF2 and a custom built 12" at this time, I do not lack tactile bass...

  8. Anyone feel the quake?

    About 110 miles from my home, yesterday at about 3:40 PM, a 7.2 earthquake hit Mexicali, a city near the border between Arizona and California, and about 5 miles south of the US/Mexico border. The first thing that came to my mind was a helicopter going by, but there was no sound of the blades...
  9. I feel like an idiot

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Hey guys, So I'm trying to calibrate my soundcard and I keep getting freq graphs that look crazy like there is some kind of feedback in the line. It rolls off around 500 hz and everything above that is a crazy ups and downs. I'm using a powerbook G4 (old school I know) two 1/8" to RCA cables...

    Home Theater Seating and Accessories
    What makes buttkicker different from others? I see several types of shakers out there that all claim they are the best. Several reviews claim one seems to work better than other. But I have not seen anything about what makes one feel different from the other. I do not need a vibrating chair...
