  1. Home Theater, Audio and Video News
    The 2016 Olympics are nearly underway, with opening day celebrations starting this coming Friday. Short of hopping on a plane and seeing the games in person, DISH Network and AT&T have struck deals with NBCUniversal to give fans the most modern of viewing experiences. Both 4K video and other...
  2. REW Forum
    In cases where dips are around 10-12db, is is acceptable to set target level low purposely? It seems easier to drop frequencies and extend Q rather than work with a +3db maximum gain. (pre-amp only has gain range of -12db to +3db, which is why I would drop my target level) Is it more...
  3. Audio Processing
    Recentl listening to Sirius Sat radio in the car has me shocked at how dull and lifeless it sounds... even blue-tooth streaming of pandora off the iphone sounds better to me... Back to the home environment for a moment: I'm curious if anyone has the "best-case" specs for dynamic range...

You can find the cure for these JavaSound ills at Room EQ Wizard on the Mac - An Input Workaround. Great work John, and...

    In an attempt to build my first SW my primary concern is enclosure size, therefore many of the designs I have seen will not work in my application. I will start with room size and it is approximately 17x19x9 with a 7x10 opening along the 19' wall into a similar sized room. This is a family room...
  7. Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    I have an interesting problem that I recently ran into. I have a server that has stored all of my DVD movies, over 1000, and I have several PCs running media center. 2 are running vista and the other is running XP media center. The XP machine is running fine. However, the Vista machines will not...
  8. Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I'm finally meeting with success using the 1124 and REW with my four DIY 15" sealed subs! The only issue with my system is that after setting my input levels to the 1124, running REW, adding the filters and playing with house curves, I only have one issue. Because the two amps I'm using (older...
