    New Member Introductions
    I just got into the audio world recently. I learned a few things and got myself a sony XB400. I must say they are an upgrade from my normal gaming headphones, but I'm interested in something better. I hope i can learn more about choices and hear other opinions.
  2. Ordered the Denon X4000... hope it works out OK

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Ordered it for 600 from accessories4less.com. My main interest was to try the dual sub EQ and the airplay/2nd room features will work out good for me. I'll be able to dedicate two channels on the amp to drive some ceiling speakers for my wife to airplay and use the HDMI zone 2 for the TV on...

    Hi everyone, I just got in. I've been building speakers as a hobbyist for 30 years. I've had some great successes (and not so great). I am a musician (piano and keyboard) and recently built a subwoofer for my arranger keyboard, the Yamaha Tyros 5. I use two Bose Compacts for the main program...

  5. Is there any hope for my room? [REW Graph]

    REW Forum
    Room analysis, need bass traps It's a studio apartment, being used for audio mixing. The room is 12'x24' rectangle. I know it's bad—I found this test because it was sounding so poor. I know I need bass traps but the 300Hz-1k bump is an issue as well. plus there are some weird reflections at...
  6. REW.......2nd time is the charm....I hope!

    REW Forum
    It's been awhile since I've been on the forum as you can see from my last post. I quickly gave up my 1st time around on trying to use REW and meant to come back but life (kids and wife) got busy. I've been reading up on the forum this past week to familiarize myself again. I'm determined this...

    Hello, I've been into audio and video for many years - started in high school with Audio Review and High Fidelity Magazines (both long gone, more than few years ago). My user name is pretty descriptive! Over the last few years trying to do my own HDTV calibrations and setup 5.1 and 7.1 audio...

  10. Post Padding Thread

    This is it... the famous post padding thread so that you can get your first five post out of the way quickly. The old post padding thread got wiped out accidentally... we apologize to those who may be inconvenienced.
  11. I sure hope I am doing something wrong

    REW Forum
    I attempted to plot the response of three different subs. REW output connected to the CD input on receiver. Sub - Yes. Mains - Large. (Mains disconnected.) My room is quite large, but the lack of bass below 35hz seems rather exaggerated. I'm hoping I have made an error in the setup...

  13. Any hope for a small screening room?

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    I have a spare bedroom in my basement going to waste, and was wondering if there is any hope for using it as a small screening room with projector and 5.1 sound. I understand small and squarish is not very optimal for sound...is it worth my time or should I let the cat continue to have her own...
  14. Hope to incorporate treatment into walls. What do you think?

    Home Audio Acoustics
    First time to post here. I have done quite a lot of research here and have come up with a plan of sorts and wondering what the people here thought. I am in the design phase and the wife has pretty much given me the green light on anything I want. Aesthetics are important to me though, so with...

  16. Any hope for my poor room?

    REW Forum
    Hi. I'm new to this forum, but I've been interested in room correction for some time, and have recently been trying out REW. What a great tool! A few problems running on my mac (incl. random crashes), but I've gotten far enough with it to ask this question... Is there any hope for my poor room...

    New Member Introductions
    I've been a long time lurker at many of the other forums and have always been bothered by how many threads turn into personal battles. I hate having to sift through 10 pages of garbage so I can read the few meaningful posts. Here's hoping this forum stays clear of name calling, nitpicking of...
