  6. Advice on an Odd Comparision Onkyo S9300 and Marantz NR1603

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I was browsing through my local AV store and found these two models as part of a clearance sale. I currently use an Onkyo HTR960 I bought a fair few years ago however I did run into an issue with it where it would take a long time to get any video feed via HDMI to be displayed if at all. After a...
  7. New to REW and getting an odd result. Please help!

    REW Forum
    Hey guys, Background, I picked up a UMM-6 from Parts Express and set up REW on my MacBook (running latest OS X 10.9.4). My goal is to use REW to more logically set the filters for my Velodyne SMS-1 and get a nice flat response from 15-80hz with my Seaton SubMs HP+ Master and Slave setup. I...
  8. odd noises show in waterfall, spectrogram

    REW Forum
    Hi! First, let me say that I am a happy and experienced user of REW. I mostly use it with a MiniDSP 2x4 to room correct and provide EQ for Bose 901s, currently with a DIY subwoofer. I've come close to EQ-ing to my house curve (another concept I learnt here at HTS). What is odd is the past few...

    Home Audio Acoustics
    High guys, While waiting to be set up to perform the first measurements with REW, I am studying my room and trying to locate the first reflection points. As you can see here http://www.hometheatershack.com/gallery/index.php?n=14507, the room is partially open to the sides and the listening...
  10. Odd LF spike in Sound Card Calibration

    REW Forum
    After hearing about room calibration, I decided to give it a shot, but it seems I'm stuck on the sound card calibration part. For reference, I have a UCA202 DAC/ADC as well as a Motherboard Line-in port. The UCA202 mic input has a noise floor of -60dBFS, while the Mobo is lower, at -85dBFS...

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Hi all. While skimming the Internet for some advice I fell upon this site. I was impressed by the level of knowledge here. I've been wanting a dedicated HT room for since before I had kids (now they're teenagers), and now I've decided to go ahead but the only room left available has an odd...
  12. New guy, Odd shapes

    DIY Speakers
    So, what with a number of elements out of my way (stupid work), I am about to re-enter/ re-build my listening lab and start again with this project. Before I begin, though I wonder if y'all might have some advice... Months ago I ran a number of tests (using REW) with different drivers trying to...

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    Hello fellow shacksters, I have this odd shaped room which I was hoping to do something with in terms of being able to watch movies, tv, etc. with surround sound. For those who followed my intro I have (finally) sourced all the components and have jury rigged it to test it out. It works quite...
  15. Odd question about my Receiver....

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    This is an odd question so bear with me on this one. I have a Yamaha RX-Z7 (non 3-D) receiver that I purchased early last summer. About 3 months later, Yamaha comes out with Aventage series that is 3D. I currently have a Panasonic Bluray player that has 2 hdmi outputs which still allows hd sound...
  16. Odd REW graph - any ideas?

    REW Forum
    I think I've seen similar graphs over time to mine so I am not yet at panic stations. First off, the equipment I am using: Dayton EMM-6 calibrate mic (cal file loaded) Behringer Xenyx 502 Mic stand Yahama RX-V871 (I've run YPAO) After calibrating the sound card, I calibrated (to the best of...
  17. Full range sweep - odd graph

    REW Forum
    I've just been having a go at doing some full range sweeps, with a view to producing some convolver filters for use in J River. The graphs though look really odd - there's a 25db drop off from 7k to around 250. My speaker should roll off at around 55, so I can only assume I've done something...

  20. Odd increase in 10k RT60

    Home Audio Acoustics
    I reran REW in my room after some minor changes over the last few weeks. Suddenly I have an almost off the chart spike in RT60 at 10k+. Waterfall shows a weird decay. It seems linear, so I'm not thinking a buzz or other equipment problem. What could be causing this? I am using a beta...
