  2. Sound Quality Might Finally Matter Again

    Home Theater, Audio and Video News
    The introduction of the MP3 player and the eventual rollout of smartphones, streaming media, and downloadable music files has fed a crucial consumer desire: convenience. It’s all about convenience, and speaking from my own experience, the storage and transportation of music media has always...
  3. LED Technology For Monitor Bias Lighting Finally Matures

    HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    I have been testing LEDs for bias lighting (display viewing environment back lighting) for many years, but with unsatisfactory results. The technology has matured gradually to the point where color quality of sufficient performance has now become available (90+ CRI & tight tolerance to the D65...
  4. Finally upgraded the family room TV...

    HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    After years of putting budget into the home theater and waiting for something truly tempting to come along... I finally pulled the plug on my old 720p 42-inch Panasonic plasma (that had family room duty) and installed a 2016 LG 65-in B6 OLED. Needless to say, picture quality is exceptional...
  5. It finally died...Onkyo tx-sr706

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    About four years ago I purchased a onkyo tx-sr706 used from a member on here. Its was fully disclosed that the HDMI board had been repaired once. I still feel it was a good deal that it lasted this long...now it not turning on at all. Now its time to shop for a replacement while I have my old...

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Ok, well I finally got carpet in the HT. I have 4 SI HT18s (one in each corner). Each 12 cubes tuned to around 17hz. My build thread is below for anyone that wants to see the room layout...

    New Member Introductions
    Hello everyone, New member here, been meaning to join for some time now and I know it bad but it was REW that finally pushed me to do it. I have been lurking around here for a few years now and I want to say thank you to everyone here at the shack as I used this site as a major point of...
  8. Secondary system has finally been completed

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    My secondary system has now been completed from a speaker purchase POV. It started with a trade of a Blackberry Torch for a pair of original PSB Alphas to be used as my left/right mains. I already had a sub, a PSB Subsonic 5 which was replaced by a Rythmik LV-12R in my main system. This put me...

  12. EQ done! I think ;) Howzit look?

    REW Forum
    Here is my final measurements! Keep in mind, my PEQ is incapable of touching anything from 200hz to 1109hz... Which kinda stinks. Next, I guess I can try and learn about chasing waterfalls, but I might stick to the rivers and the lakes like I'm used too... ::FACEPALM:: I think I'm happy, but...
  13. Finally got a projector

    Home Theater Projectors
    Well after many long months of debating whether or not to order a projector I finally broke down and ordered a Optoma H180x. So far I am very pleased with it. It seems to have nice contrast and the black levels are much better than I expected for such a entry level projector. I wish I could...
  14. Epik finally makes it official

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    Although most of us already knew Epik was out of business they finally made it official. I feel bad for all the people who have had no luck getting their warranty issues addressed, especially in light of the fact they mysteriously seems to have an awful lot of parts for sale now. What a shame.
  15. Finally finished first speaker project

    DIY Speakers
    At long last the Econowave Altec 414-8B project is finished. This was all designed by Zilch on the Parts Express Tech talk forum "Flex Your PCD Mettle". Many thanks to Zilch (RIP), Pete Schumacher and NeoDan for their patience. It has been quite the learning experience but also provided an...
  16. Finally joining the fun

    New Member Introductions
    Hi Folks, So I joined this site a while back just to get the REW software. Well, now that I've build my first sub and am looking to do front speaker build figured I'd jump into the mix as I'm sure I'll be asking the good people of this forum for some advise along the way. Just a little bit...

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    I'm finally at the point where I can start wiring!!..My ceiling is still open, so luckily, I was able to run from receiver, into the wall and through the celing, and snaked the wires through the front wall :)
  18. Finally bought a Klipsch RC-62II. WOW Amazing speaker.

    Home Audio Speakers
    Hi Today i finally pulled out the credit card and bought a Klipsch RC62II to match my RF35s and i simply cant believe how much difference this speaker has made. I upgraded from the old Synergy SC2, which i thought was pretty decent. This centre speaker is amazing and i cant believe how much...
  19. The Day Has Finally Come!

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Money came into view and I was able to finally upgrade from my Sony STR K750P HTIB receiver. At first, I had my heart set on a Marantz SR5007 based on a recommendation here at HTS. However, I needed to settle on something a little more in budget. Today I ordered the Onkyo TX-NR709 for $399 from...
  20. Finally got it working.

    REW Forum
    After having too many issues with the Behringer UCA202, I bought an m-audio mobilepre and an uncalibrated ecm8000 mic... and they finally arrived. I did a few quick measurements just to see if it worked any better than the UCA202, and it looks like it works... The red_line is using no mic cal...
