  1. Connecting Gizmo

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    Good morning all. I recently purchased a gizmo and I was wanting to confirm which cable(s) I would need to purchase. I'll be using the gizmo with the av123 525m. For a desktop setup, I was planning to purchasing this to hook up from the headphone jack of my laptop to the gizmo. Would this...
  2. Gizmo w/Inefficient Speakers

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    I'm tempted by the Gizmo sale. How would it do, though, with inefficient speakers like the av123 ELT525Ms (83 dB)? I'd probably use the set-up in a fairly large bedroom, being converted into an office. It's maybe 15' x 20' x 8' (It's in another state, and I can't measure right now.) EDIT...
  3. Can I use Gizmo to power 1 speaker?

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    I just upgraded my system with three SHO-10s and have a perfectly good center channel speaker available and unused. I would like to use it as a speaker for a TV which at present has no external speaker. The TV has provision for hooking up an external stereo amp. But how do I hook up a single...
  4. Gizmo binding post Q

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    So i bought some 14 AWG bare wires and it seems like its too thick for the binding posts... Do you think I would have to resort to buying pin or banana connectors? Thanks. I'll post up pics when I'm done installing my PC setup (my hard drive died last night! Talk about bad luck... :hissyfit:)
  5. Gizmo kudos

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    I recently bought Gizmos for use in two computer desktop 2.1 systems, each with two very small monitors and a cheap B stock sub. Crazy inexpensive for what it is and so much better than the retail "computer speakers" I had before. I just wanted to say, this is a fantastic product for this...

  7. Gizmo

    Well, the other day when I was talking with my mom, I found out that she had been watching more tv shows on the computer, so I decided to get her a Gizmo and already have a few athena Micra 6 speakers sitting around as well as the sub. It is going to be a big upgrade for her from an old Boston...

  10. New power supply for Gizmo?

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    I'm of the opinion that the Gizmo is a nice little amp, especially after doing dweekie's mods. Been using it in my computer system for a while, and have been very happy w/ it. But, as usual, I'm looking to see if I can improve it further. Wanted to see if anyone has tried a different power...

  12. Gizmo without sub

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    When using the gizmo without a sub are you just supposed to boost the bass level in order to defeat the 100hz crossover? :no clue: edit: I ended up setting the bass boost to one position below max by ear, but still would be curious how it works.

  14. Crackle/Fuzz Distortion with Gizmo 1.0M

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    Hi. I recently purchased the Gizmo for use as an amp for my PC desktop setup. It's driving a pair of Energy CB-5s coupled with an Energy eXL:S8 subwoofer. Now, for the most part it sounds great, except I can hear a bit of what I can only describe as a crackle or fuzzy distortion at certain...
  15. Is my input source too 'hot' for the Gizmo?

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    Hi, I recently bought a Gizmo / WAF-1 package. I have the Gizmo hooked up to a few sources but I noticed a bit of muddy distortion when I play some CDs through a Pioneer DV-563A. I'm thinking perhaps the Pioneer's output is too hot for the Gizmo. I have the 563A connected to the Gizmo...
  16. Suggested tweaks for the Gizmo?

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    Hey, bit new hear and I was reading around that many of you have modded your Gizmos. Can I ask what are the best mods to do to improve the sound quality?
  17. Gizmo Power Consumption

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    Since this question comes up every now and then, I thought it might be helpful to sticky this info which is currently buried in another thread. Had a question the other day about how much power the Gizmo uses when on and/or in the standby mode. Didn't know the answer, so I picked up one of...

  19. I am really enjoying my Gizmo classic

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    So I finally have my office system dialed in the way I want it now with the gear I want and I have to say that I love the Gizmo classic (non bass tracking version). Here's what I like so much - I am using my soundcard to control the master volume so now adjusting the gizmo volume adjusts the...
  20. Gizmo xover slope

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    Does anyone know the slope of the 100Hz xover in the Gizmo? I remember seeing a frequency response graph a while back, and I'm thinking it looked like a 12dB/octave slope, but can't be sure.
