  1. How to make a custom USB cable for a Finis Neptune MP3 player?

    DIY Audio
    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. Should adding a preamp make my system louder at -20db?

    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. Does anyone make this?

    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. :)

    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...
  11. [REQ]: Make the window controls a bit simpler to use for common use cases

    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...

  13. Why would treating my room make the frequency response worse?? [graphs]

    REW Forum
    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...

  16. Why don't AVR Manufacturers make this?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    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...

    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...

    REW Forum
    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...
