    Purchased a Samsung 32" 1080p LED/lcd several days back, and hooked her to our DirecTV SD receiver model R16-300, using the Composite cable: I'm underwhelmed. Actually, after a few days of use and adjustment, things are looking better, but still - it's a long way from the picture I get from my...

    I am looking for an outboard unit just to apply SS filter to my 2 subs to keep the ultralow stuff out & prevent overexcursion. I am looking for something that has two sub inputs and two outputs & that doesn't alter the signal in any way other than applying the SS filter at 10 or 15Hz. I am...
  3. Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I am just trying to feel out my options here, and looking for a good pre-amp without room EQ and acquiring a potentially superior outboard Room EQ solution seems to be an interesting path. I realize it is more expenssive, and in that vein, would be curious how cost effective it is. I am also...
  4. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I've been intrigued with the idea of running one or two smaller box passive subs off the plate amp in my KLH 120W machine. First, anybody here every tried running slaved passives off of this or any other plate amp from a main sub? Does this mess up the main sub? I know this is feasible, but is...

    Just recently I purchased a Rega P1, and upgraded to the Rega Bias Cartridge, and a glass platter. Now when I play it in Direct mode, using my Integra DTC 9.8 preamp, it sounds great. Only problem is when it is in direct, the Sub is not active. If I switch to Stereo mode, the bottom end is...

    SVS used to offer a nice outboard device that was RCA in and RCA out, where you could adjust the phase and volume. (It also had a second RCA output that was fixed rather than variable phase.) Anyone know where I could find something similar? My subs don't have built in phase adjustment controls.

    I remember in the late, '90s Technics used to make an outboard DD/DTS decoder (SH-AC500D) with coax/optical inputs and a 5.1 analog output, for the benefit of certain mid-'90s receivers that had a 5.1 input but no DD built in. I have a Sony receiver from 1999 with a 5.1 analog input. It has DD...

    I’m looking for a stand-alone USB hard drive that I can use as a back-up for my files. I don’t need anything huge, 20-30 gig would be more than enough. I’d also like for it to be quiet. The Western Digital drive I had in my desktop made a constant, annoying, high-pitched whine – don’t want to...
  9. REW Forum
    Hi guy's, I have been looking with some interest as to whether REW can be used to test outbaord gear for more than just FR. Was hoping to use it to test S/N ratio. I am a bit slow when learning software (dyslexic :confused: ). The first thing i have done is try to calibrate my soundcard...

    I thought I'd try something today. I used REW to measure my sub using the RS meter technique outlined in the REW help files, then I did it again using a Behringer Calibration mic and a studio-grade mic preamp. The constants were the computer, the soundcard (external Creative USB), the measurment...
