    I've pulled an older 5.1 RCA receiver model RT2250 off the shelf (10+ years storage from friend), with the intention of setting it up for my father-in-law. He's in his 80s (his wife also) and they're struggling to understand the factory speakers in their TV. Anyway, I know it's not a fancy...

    Today we hooked up the bass bins only. We bypassed the Dirac, and crossover and ran the cable straight from my Yamaha CX-A5100 preamp to the Crest Audio amp. Can anyone explain to me why we have this result? Granted it is a 50db range, but is it normal for a Single woofer to respond like this on...

    Okay so I’m trying to figure out how loud my system can go at my normal levels. I’m somewhat doing this to see if the subs I what to get can handle my listening habits. The level on my AVR that I listen to the most is -20db. -30db or -25db for “regular music” and -20db or -15db for Classical...

    So I've started playing with my UMIK-1 and decided to focus on my subwoofer first (Lava LSP12). I'm looking at an imminent sub purchase (PB-13 or FV15HP or equivalents) and wanted to understand what I have now so that I can make a better informed decision while also appreciating the upgrade...

    Hi all, I have an Epson 9700ub and as I was watching it tonight the bulb popped, made my wife jump, the screen went black(of course) and the red led turned on. This is after noticing the brightness drop dramatically yesterday and today. The color in thx mode was very green as well. I had it in...

Is there any down side to pro amps........ sound quality?? Buzzing or hums coming from speakers ect??. I...

  9. Samsung
    A couple of weeks ago my 61" Samsung HL-R6167W started turning off unexpectedly. When powered on the ballast fires and the lamp lights as expected. While the TV is running the picture looks normal with no dimness or visual quality issues that I can see. At first the TV would stay on for what...

    Could anyone suggest me why I'm getting diffrent curves when I'm comparing the calibration file to an ordinary Right Out to Right Input connection? In the first case I'm getting a 7dB difference (20Hz-20KHz), (-6,8dB) at 20KHz whereas in the second case nearly flat. I'm using a D-audio Axys...

    Using the multiple sweep method for measuring makes it kind of more accurate. But if one of those is totaly wrong, you get a wrong (averaged) graph also. What I'm doing is making 5-6 single measurments, overlaying them, and choose 2-3 graphs that are similar. Now I can average those, BUT I...
  13. Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    I just bought a Toshiba Blu-ray player primarily for upconverting DVDs with the added benefit of being able to play the occasional Blu-ray. I put in a DVD and felt it was worse upconverted. It’s definitely slightly clearer than using my non-upconverting DVD player, but during some scenes with...

    Hi all, sorry if this isn't the right place, but I didn't see a section for DIY speaker cables. I have been looking at some diy designs, cat5, silver wire, etc... but the simplest one looks to be just doubling up speaker wire. I plan on taking four strands of monoprice 12 awg speaker wire, and...

    All - I've tested the REW with two different computers and am getting what appear to be mixed results. I am now using a Dell laptop with a SigmaTel audio soundcard that has a line in option. I'm able to get the SPL signal to register within REW and was able to generate this curve after a lot...

    Hi All, After 3 days of trying to get my SB Live to work with Vista and a dual boot OS, I decided to borrow a friends laptop with XP (should have done that 3 days ago :)) Anyway, I followed the directions as best as I could. Created a cal file for my soundcard, loaded the cal file for my dB...

    Hi, Bought a BFD 1124 this weekend, set up and used REW, worked great, but i could hardly press the "store" key. All the other buttons (fitlter, freq, bandwith, etc) all have a nice dentent "click" action when pressed. The store button, on the otherfand, felt like a keyboard key that had been...

    I used REW and BFD a month ago to set up my Yamaha RX-V1400 and HSU sub woofer just beautifully. I just got the Yamaha HTR-6090 which is very much like the 1400 except its more modern (the 1400 is a couple years old), has better processing and HDMI switching. I used Straight for the 1400 and...

    Greetings! Here are my two, hopefully correctly done, graphs. I tried to follow all the instructions and this is what I got. The first graph, yellow, is not corrected by the Harman Kardon avr-635 built in ezsetup (Parametric EQ). I am using a couple of the GIK 244 panels and both front corners...
