  1. [REQ]: Adapt REW to show data for non mic inputs

    REW Forum
    I've been using an accelerometer recently like this article - http://www.audioxpress.com/assets/upload/files/George%20NtanavarasAccelerometer.pdf Based on this experience, there are 2 features that would make this easier in REW 1) allow the user to specify the input sensitivity directly, e.g...
  2. coax inputs stopped working

    System Setup and Connection
    Mitsubishi DLP WD-65732. I dropped satellite a couple of years ago and have been using antenna input. The TV has 2 coax inputs. Both stopped working. I can switch back/forth between inputs from the menu, then do a channel search, wait for it to complete, but it doesn't find any. The other...
  3. Measuring absolute delay with two soundcard inputs

    REW Forum
    Hello, did anyone managed to measure absolute delay of signal using two different soundcard inputs (Mic in: Microfon; Line in (as reference): Loopback cabel with signal)? Or is it only possible to use right channel mic in as reference signal (ref in) and left channel mic in for signal...
  4. Plotting multiple inputs on RTA

    REW Forum
    Is it possible to at least run two instances of REW with preferences set to different inputs, so that I can see 2 RTA graphs at the same time? Preferably to have functionality from 'All SPL' view in RTA. My usecase is a dance studio, where I assume the response should change a lot when it gets...
  5. Can the MiniDSP 2x4 use both inputs with the 4-way advanced?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Quick question. I plan to utilize one MiniDSP 2x4 with the 4-way advanced crossover, for each of my 3-way towers. I would have 1 unused input and 1 output left on each unit. Does the plugin allow me to than use the extra in and out for running my sub and/or center channel? Basically, are both...
  6. Are there any decent low cost receivers with 8 channel analog inputs?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Being that this is my first post, I guess a quick run down of my equipment is necessary. Currently, my PC is the center of my entertainment system. I literally do everything with it; watch TV, DVD, Blu-ray, play games (the original reason for my particular setup), and of course, listen to...
  7. 5 channel receiver with 5 channel inputs

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I have a twelve-year-old Yamaha 5.1 receiver. It has 5-channel discrete input. I want to replace it ... but it seems that receivers today no longer have the discrete inputs. Those seem to have gone away with the 2011 or 2012 model year. Am I wrong? Are there new ones that meet my requirement?

  9. can I split a signal output to two amp inputs?

    REW Forum
    Hey everybody, I have a MiniDSP 2x4 to use for subwoofer integration in my car. the DSP has two inputs and four outputs. The website says for sub integration, I use output 1 for the sub, and outputs 3 and 4 for the left and right mains. Problem is my radio has four outputs, not two. LF, RF, LR...
  10. Amplifier Inputs - Interchangeable?

    System Setup and Connection
    Are the inputs on an amp (CD, Aux, Tuner) specific to those devices or can they be interchanged? e.g. Can you connect an Aux to the Tuner input and vice versa? I realise that Phono inputs are generally specific.
  11. Calibrating inputs?

    Video Calibration
    Was going thru the video processing menu of my Oppo BDP-103 and started to think if I should really use this? Would calibrating the Oppo conflict or add to the calibration that was done on the TV? How does one calibrate different inputs? Right now I have everything going to my Denon 4311, via...
  12. Strange request, AVR that has discrete audio inputs?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I'm looking to do the opposite of what a lot do instead, I want a AVR that I could put external, independent audio into the 6-7 amps, and use them separately from the rest of the AVR's circuitry. I basically want a 6 channel amp, that I can use for speaker development with active crossovers...
  13. PB-1000 using both high and low level inputs at the same time

    I was having some sub localization problems (see this thread) and got a second PB-1000 for testing. I'd like to have both PB-1000s connected to LFE out using a Y splitter and also in stereo bass mode at the same time (one for the front L and the other for the front R). And I have some questions...
  14. Monaural out to line level (L/R) inputs

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Just got a new 7.2 receiver and am hooking it up to an older Polk subwoofer. The receiver has 2 subwoofer RCA outputs (monaural) and the subwoofer has a left and right RCA line input (it also has speaker level inputs/outputs but I don't want to use these). Can I use just one RCA cable to either...
  15. Phono amp interfering with HDMI inputs???

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hey all - strange thing I've got happening. I just bought a refurb Marantz 6007 and it sounds great.. BUT: A couple of days ago I noticed that when nothing was playing on one of my HDMI inputs ( in this case media player ) I was getting this strange static / white noise coming from my...
  16. Can I use inputs other than 1 & 2?

    REW Forum
    Hi. Firstly, Thank You for the free software. :D I've done a search on this but haven't found anything relevant. I'm setting up a basic measurement rig using a Tascam US600 USB interface. It has 4 mic / line inputs with inputs 1 and 2 on the front and inputs 3 and 4 on the back. The power and...

  18. Can some aplifiers take High Level inputs?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hi all, I have done a bunch of research but still cannot find what I am looking for. Basically I would like to have a receiver and an Emotiva amplifier. However most external amplifiers require a pre-out or low level signal. My receiver only has the high (amplified) outputs. Most A/V receivers...
  19. line level inputs

    System Setup and Connection
    I just bought an ION ilp not so much for the ability to copy LP's to other formats but since I wanted a turntable I saw this one and decided to get it. It is telling me to connect the outputs from the table to LINE LEVEL inputs on my reciever/amp. I only have one set of inputs on the amp how do...
  20. Losing Multi-Channel Inputs

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    I have an opportunity to upgrade my AV receiver which is an older Marantz SR-5300 from around 2002. It has served me well for 10 years. But, I would like to have HDMI (for video) and Audyssey Multi EQ XT 32 so I can EQ my speakers and my sub. So I've been looking at an Onkyo receiver - NR 818...
