    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hello, I purchased a BFD off of ebay and it appears that no matter what I do, I can't seem to get the lights on Engine L or Engine R to go off, unless I am in a preset mode 7 and 9, but I guess they could be have been changed by original owner. Anyway I was under the impression that I could...

  6. Sub hum? Anybody help?

    DIY Repair and Maintenance
    I have a ULW 10" sub from AV123 with their factory substituted 500W plate amp. It has a low hum, particularly after many hours of standby, which may intensify when actually used for musical input. It's not the loud ground loop type hum, and all units are grounded to the same point anyway. Any...
  7. Onkyo receiver help?

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    Hello, I was dead set on getting a refurbished Onkyo 807 receiver. However, I see that the 707 is very similar, and can be purchased for about $150 less? This is for basic home theatre setup in family livingroom. Do not need excessive power, and likely only doing 5.1 setup, with maybe 2...

    I am fairly new to quality AVRs. I recently purchased an Onkyo HT-RC180. I hooked it up about 10 days ago. I recently calibrated it using the Audyssey setup. That seemed to go fine.

    Just a quick question, I have a Onkyo 605 receiver with Audyssey 2EQ. I have been thinking about getting a sub eq, like the SVS EQ1, but I really don't want to spend $700 on a eq for a $600 sub. I am adding superchunk basstraps to help smooth out the bass reponse. So instead of spending on a...

  16. Calibration help?

    REW Forum
    I haven't even gotten as far as calibration, so there's no telling how bad I'll get stuck when I actually measure :crying: I'm using a Presonus Firebox.

    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    I'm having problems with my HTPC. When I turn it on, it works fine. If I change the input on my receiver to something else, then go back, it takes a long time for the computer screen to display again, even though I can get audio output. Sometimes it restarts, and sometimes it displays after say...
