    Someone gave me a swimming, underwater Finis Neptune MP3 player but the problem is the charging cable was not included. Since this is a waterproof MP3 player the cable is proprietary and it is impossible to find a cable (from the company or otherwise) without buying a second unit on eBay with...
  2. AV Home Theater
    I have an Anthem mrx520 powering my 5.2 setup. When listening to movies at -20db the speakers sounded fine but was worried to drive my 4ohm speakers any harder using the integrated amp. I just added an ATI525NC class D amp which is 300wpc into 4ohms and switched the connection to my Anthem...
  3. Audio Processing
    I am looking for a Dirac processor that takes a HDMI input, and outputs with fiber optic for each channel or analog for each channel. You may ask why...for active speakers, and eliminating a DtoA conversion. :)

    Hello, I've recently moved my music studio to a new workspace. Without getting into details, I've got to make this space work as best I can for at least a couple years. So first, pictures of the room are attached. *note: the ceilings are straight angles, not curved as they appear. The...

    Hi, In these days whre Netflix, cinemanow and other streaming platform offers HD and now UltaHD 4k streaming movies, does it still make sense to upgrade to the latest BD player and buy bd or ultrahd bd media vs renting it on a streaming service ? Alain :smile:

    I run my cs ultras in 12hz mode and I am looking to re-enforce but svs doesn't offer any subs anymore that can dig into the 12hz...any ideas??
  9. Audio Processing
    m redoing my whole setup and ended up with 2 avr's (Denon x4000 AND Pioneer SC25 + antimode 8033c). Budget is a big issue so I need to sell one setup or the other. This got me thinking about Dirac Live. Please let me know which option you think is best and any concerns I should be aware of...
  10. REW Forum
    I have 2 suggestions that come directly from Holm but do make that app a bit less fiddly to use (for speaker design use) + 1 other suggestion I've dreamt up 1) provide "curtains" on the IR that you can drag left and right to set the left/right window positions 2) provide an "auto detect" window...
  11. Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hi everyone. I'm new on this forum and just did a search for this sub but didn't see any detailed builds. I have a dual 2 ohm one sitting here and would like to build a box tomorrow for it, it possible. Since their website is not only down, but it's also setup more for car audio, can you guys...

    Hey, I recently came into a LOT of OC703, and so I used it to treat my room pretty completely. But the problem is that after comparing my before/after tests, it looks like the frequency response got worse! Though things like the RT60 and Decay look better. Why might this be? Here are the...

    I started a thread in computers http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/computers-htpc-media-servers/102065-best-laptop-bang-buck.html thinking that it might be the place. I know that all things come in good time. If to run REW do I absolutely need the most expensive laptop money can buy? I...

    Since 90% of the AV Market is now flat panels... Why doesn't anyone make a compact AVR that could be mounted on the wall behind the TV? I know a lot of people have moved to flat panels and have complained that they are not saving any space due to the large AV equipment. What do you think? Is...
  16. REW Forum
    Hi, so I'm very new to this. I have my PC going into a Denon X4000 AVR via optical toslink. I have two main speakers (B&W 602s3) and a sub (SVS SB-2000). I am using a Umik-1 with the calibration file as the mic. The results are in the overlay graph. Two things immediately spring to mind...

    I see I only can setup a 20 band EQ filter using equalizer type generic. Currently I load 2 saved profiles, 1 for low freq & the other for high freqs. Isn't a 31 band eq not somewhat common?

    While at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF) recently, I had a chance to hear the current HD 650 and compare it directly with the classic HD 600. It was clear that the difference between the two models is much smaller now than it was with the earlier HD 650 that I first compared to. As Solderdude...

    Hi all, Have you ever wondered how much of a difference room treatment can make ? Personally I understand what is the purpose of it. Unfortunately I've never experienced it. I live in apartment and for now I just don't have the money and space to setup a true theater room with proper EQ and...
