  1. Two Channel Audio
    I know the "differences in amps" has been kicked around here until it is on its last leg, but what about pre-amps? If amps that spec out the same all sound the same (for the record, I do not believe they do), shouldn't pre-amps that share the same numbers sound the same as well? Surely the...
  2. Two Channel Audio
    We have other threads that get into "Can we hear a difference?" type questions, the biggest one about amps, located HERE. So this thread is not asking the question "Can we hear a difference?", but asks the following question: How can one learn to listen for and hear the differences between...
  3. Pro Audio
    I've been looking around for some preamp upgrades. I have an eye on the API 3124 - I'm reading they're quite good on most things, especially drums. But I'm also kinda drooling over the Universal Audio 4-710d. Whatever I get,... well, I was originally looking at just picking up two of the same...
  4. Two Channel Audio
    If the preamp is phase inverted, then I will need to reverse the speaker connections for 2 ch operation. This becomes a real pain when switching between a non phase inverting Receiver in HT mode and 2 channel listening. Any simple solution ? Tks
  5. SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    The title says it, I'm looking for a simple, cheap (< $100) solid-state preamp for a calibrated ECM8000. All I really need is mic-in, line-out (to my Audigy 4) and phantom power. I'm planning to use this system with REW as a tool to gain better sound & acoustics. Edit: After some research I...

    Looking at these two company's preamps- used,older B&W Reference 30 and Outlaw 950, but very comparable in features, with the B&W having a nice present feature and on-remote channel adjustments for center and sub, and for about $100 more. I need not concern with video in/out. Mating with an...
  7. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hey all, I'm considering much going with the preamp/poweramp route. However, it is just SO hard to compare pricewise to some of the higher end receivers. You can pick up a Onkyo TX-SR805 with 130x7 for less than $600. Does anyone have any suggestions for a decent preamp that isn't at a...
  8. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    This is more of a general question, as it gnaws at me a bit because I don't quite understand the benefit to your system to have these amps hooked up. From my own experience I have a dedicated room and a 7.1 HK 635 receiver that puts out 75 watts of quality power to all speakers, and the max I...
  9. SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    A few thins about this setup: 1. I am using the REW and an ECM8000 to tune my bedroom studio. I understand the purpose of using an external preamp for the ECM8000 in the case that you are using a consumer grade soundcard with limited mic input. However, if I am using a Motu Ultralite whihc has...
