  1. Home Theater System Recommendations
    Well, my future anyhow. I've been pushing everything through an Onkyo TX-NR929, which was antiquated the year after it was released as they won't/can't update it to support Dolby Atmos/DTS:X. I won't lie, I'm a little disappointed by that and I'm not sure I'm going to buy another Onkyo for...

    Sony Electronics recently announced a new R&D initiative aimed at bringing consumers closer to the development process. This is an interesting move for a company within an industry that typically likes to hold its new product development cards close to the chest. Dubbed the "Future Lab Program,"...
  4. Home Theater Design and Construction
    Ok here's the story: We are building a house this spring. In the basement we will have our kids bedrooms, but the middle of the basement is a 15x20 rec room. That room will become a theater in about 5 years once our kids get a little older. Only issue is my wife really wants the room...

    Hi folks, Brand new here, and want to apologize if most of this has already been answered in various threads. I did some high level searches to get most of my answers but it's a bit convoluted. Looking to build our new house in the next year or so. Starting to get a grip on what this is going...

    Dear John! Would it be possible to extend the RTA vertical scale below -60dB SPL? That would allow us to calibrate the SPL meter and RTA with external reference in dBu or dBV "units". Kind of a work around to not having other than dB SPL and dBfs units available. To be able to see soundcard...

    For decades, commercial cinemas remained the only destination capable of delivering the grandeur of true movie magic, easily eclipsing home theater performance in nearly every category imaginable. The home theater realm seemed suspended in an everlasting game of catch-up and imitation...

  13. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    So I scored an awesome heavy duty tube at work (they get about 1 a month - it's an expendable item on which material comes wrapped). It's 54" tall with a 24" ID. It's extremely rigid and heavy; the walls are nearly 1/2" thick and it's nice and round. My wife is finally starting to entertain...
  14. Reviewers Private Forum
    Hey guys - just curious if the new owner plans to continue investing in equipment reviews? I have tried contacting them a couple times over the last week or two with some general questions and have not received any response (PMed newtechadmin - maybe wrong one?). Anyway, I just want to make sure...
  15. SVSound
    Hi all. New to the site but I have been trolling for a long time. Does anyone know if SVS has anything coming in the near future of a dual sub? Like a JL Audio F212 or F213. Fathom/Gothom? I know I can buy a pair of SVS SB 13 Ultra's. Great chance that is what I am going to buy. Wondering about...
  16. REW Forum
    I have a Samsung Note 3 which I am realizing is quite an awesome phablet -- it's got a large enough display and good enough digital audio to act as a hand-held REW system combined with the MiniDSP USB microphone. The Note 3 supports USB-3, 192/24bit audio. Please also suggest if there is any...

    Dear John, you're incredible with your attention to detail in REW, and it shows. It's a true labor of love and my mind is blown. The help section is in itself a wonderful tutorial on the process of room analysis. I started a thread long ago but am too lazy to find it so I'm creating a new one...

    Folks, I'm looking for some technical advice on how an A/V processor's shelf/rack life can be extended... especially with Video/display technology changing much faster than Audio technology and formats... The immediate question is: I'm planning to get an Onkyo PR-SC-5508 (I know its an older...

    Apple TV rumors have become somewhat boring. After all, we’ve been watching them trickle through news media outlets for several years. The infamous project’s flames were initially ignited when Steve Jobs hinted that he had an idea that would ideally marry a television product with the Mac...
