  1. Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    Well my wife and I finally took the plunge after having an HD ready display (A Sony 53" RPTV) for the last 4 years we bought a HD-PVR to get HD through our cable company. I must say that HD looks fantastic Shaw now has 21 HD channels and soon more are going to be added. I know that sat has more...
  2. Home Audio Acoustics
    Hi All, I finally have all my acoustic panels and bass traps installed. Pretty easy to do too. I took some measurements today and surprisingly not a huge difference. Smoothed out some areas but nothing significant. I spoke with Brian P and he stated that the treatments will not fix the room...
  3. Home Audio Acoustics
    Well at least most of them. Still have 4 bass traps to hang but I think they look pretty darned good. The color matches the walls perfectly (better than the pics show, maybe due to the flash). Kids are asleep so I can't test it out until the am :hissyfit: The one over the display is...
  4. Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    Fed-Ex woke me this morning with my XA2. OK, so I'm off today and was trying to sleep in some. Hooked up the video cable using HDMI to DVI cable. Pretty impressed with the HD disc picture. Put in a standard DVD to compare, not so sure that it upconverts any better than my Oppo971. I'll hook up...

  6. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    So, my 2 12" EHQS's just aren't cutting it for me in music, sure rocks in a lot of movies though, but it can't keep up with my stereo volume wise in a lot of things, so I've modeled a lot of (budget) drivers and with my bedroom only being like 11*12 I'm limited in space and can't really do...
  7. REW Forum
    Initial plot: Corrected: This is using the full compliment of 12 filters. What I did was first take a measurement and let REW determine the filter set and downloaded them. Then I took another, and added those suggested filters to the 1st set. The results are the corrected graph you see...
  8. IB - Infinite Baffle Subwoofer Build Projects
    I finished putting together my 4 tempest IB this weekend.... I am powering it with the 2 channels of my Crest CPX2600 pro amp at 8 ohms at 500 watts per pair. I still have to do the eq part..I already own a behringer eq. Here are some pics for those that are interested to see how this came...
  9. Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    The DV-981HD is a 1080p upconverting DVD player based on the very successful 971H platform (see below). Essentially, the 981 is a black version of the 971 that has few differences: HDMI with 1080p upconversion (instead of DVI/1080i as in the 971), the component output (which only output 480i on...
  10. REW Forum
    I first downloaded the REW application a couple of weeks ago, and tried using it with the built-in mic input on my laptop computer. Not a good idea! Even after calibrating the levels, I could not get an accurate reading on the frequency sweep. So, I decided to actually follow the instructions...
  11. DIY Speakers
    Hey guys, Today I went to Home Depot with the parents to buy a lawn mower and on my way out decided to snag a roundover bit for the ol' Ryobi. I looked around for the 3/4" bits but there weren't any in stock so I ended up leaving with a 1/2" bit. Its been a few months since the Natalie P's were...
  12. REW Forum
    I finally tackled REW. I promised myself that I would do it right when I built my IB, so in preparation I tried it out on my 10"sub. I followed the REW Guide and had no real problems. Thanks, John! First, a note on connections. My local RS didn't have the adapter shown in the guide, RS part...
  13. REW Forum
    Hello, Sorry about the thread title. It should read Finally have BFD and made my first measurement. Ok I made a measurement of my PB12-Plus and have attached the graph. Where to start? What do you guys think? Any advice? Does the dip at 45 look too bad for the BDF to take care of? Thanks...

    Yes the spec is available (HDMI_Spec_1.3_GM1.pdf 1,969KB) -- if you swear that you need it to evaluate getting a license at your work. Bob
  15. Home Audio Subwoofers
    In my pre-BFD days, I moved my sub around the room and found the spot that sounded best to me was directly behind my listening position. When I got the BFD, I did not move the sub, I just EQed it where it was and was very impressed by the improvement. Later I started to wonder if moving the sub...
  16. REW Forum
    Well, I finally got REW working with an external sound card and the EMC mic and I started some scans. I disconnected all speakers but the sub and set the crossover to 200. Not sure if I should leave it at 80 as I normally do or not, but I thought I would see the response up to 200 this way...
