  1. Atmos/DTS-X with MiniDSP DDRC-88A processor question

    Audio Processing
    I have the MiniDSP DDRC-88A processor, and they just came out with a software upgrade for it that will enable me to eliminate my Xilica crossover. This is nice, but brings up some questions. A little background: I have a bi-amp setup for my front 3 channels which entails my signal going...
  2. How tolerant is REW of processing applied to the timing reference signal?

    REW Forum
    my multichannel system involves a set of FIR filters, running in jriver, that deal with room correction, bass management and channel alignment (delays). I use REW's loopback timing reference to verify this is working correctly. I don't use a physical cable for this, instead use virtual loopback...
  3. Oppo 105D video processing (Marvell Qdeo and/or Darbee?)

    Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    I am considering the recent 'D' version of this well known upscale 'universal' player as a upgrade for my HT setup. But I have a few questions, for which users of the 105D might already have some answers: 1- Both the Oppo 105 and the 105D are using the same audio circuits, but the 105D have...
  4. Video processing Oppo BDP-83 vs Denon X4000

  7. Using a computer for AV processing

    Audio Processing
    Has anyone thought of or are they using their PC as a AV preamp? A friend of mine and I were just thinking of using our PCs as a real HT PC and use the sound card (internal or external) with JRiver MC18 software for the processor. Is this possible? Any drawbacks? If I went this route I would...
  8. Who uses their AVR to do video processing?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    And why? I use mine as a video switch only having one HDMI cable going to the display. All processing is done either by the BluRay player or by the display itsself (satellite receiver)
  9. HTPC audio processing

    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    I have htpc with soundblaster X-Fi xtreme audio and 5 active speakers. Soundblaster doesn't have eq, delay or bass management controls for individual channels and I don't have an AV amplifier to do audio processing. Is there any program, plugin or media player that can do audio processing?
  10. Color3 Advanced HDMI Color Processing Device

    HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    Since the Darblet popped up last week I figured I'd throw this one out there as well. I saw it in a sale email from Newegg. This unit is supposedly THX Approved and uses eeColor processing. Quite a bit cheaper than a Darblet at only $79. Here's the Newegg link. Manufacturer's website

    I would like to use the dcx for crossovers and filters for consumer/home use. I have a 7.2 sys. and don't know how far I can go with 1 unit. My subs I will use the deq and for the others (7 speakers) the dcx. Will I need more than 1 dcx? Is the mx882 recomended? For the low volume noise...
  12. Audio processing or lack there of, is there really such a thing

    Audio Processing
    Audio processing/EQ or lack there of, is there really such a thing So, been seeing a number of posts from members who think that audio processing and the result of adding EQ or other processors to the chain takes away from the sound. My personal opinion is that as soon as the instruments and...
  13. THX Certified Blu-rays, mastered to work best with THX processing?

    Audio Processing
    I can't seem to find any definitive answers. When a DVD/Blu-ray is THX certified, does the sound engineer mix the audio to work better with the THX processing modes? Will using, for example, THX cinema more accurately represent the engineer's original intent. Any ideas?
  14. REW signal processing

    I'm a student and right now I`m working on a project about room acoustics and signal processing. I want to use REW as software for measurements. First thing I have to do is to proove that REW is a LTI-system. For the properties of a LTI-system I`ve checked for homogeneity which is no problem and...
  15. Processing video for unloading to internet hosting sites.

    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    Since the multimedia forum was removed at HTS I guess this is the next best place for this topic. I recently purchased a JVC Everio GZ-HM320B 8G and SD/SDHC card slot High-Def camcorder since my old Sony Digital8 camcorder has started to show it's age. The main reason for getting the new solid...
  16. Musing about video processing

    Video Calibration
    Everything in the video chain upscales the video whether it is a $49 DVD player, an AVR, or a stand alone video processor. What's up with that ?? I know would rather have my TV upscale the video instead of a cheap DVD player and I think I want it to upscale the signal period. So I have been...
  17. Laptop speed and RAM needed for REW processing

    REW Forum
    Instead of messing around with my wife's 2 year old Toshiba Laptop which is running Vista SP2, I am thinking of using an "old" laptop that I inherited from my nephew . It is not very fast and has only 512RAM running Win XP Pro. Will this be sufficient for running REW ? TKs

    Pro Audio
    I have recently started expanding my studio and have invested in a new RME Fireface and a whole batch of software synths from East/West. My music is mostly instrumental, and I mainly mix and process in the box. I'm loving my new setup so far. So, now I'm looking to invest in quality software...

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I had this question in HTPC but not much traffic there. My Yammy HTR-5550 has 4 optical inputs but there seems to be buzzing or hissing with certain digital signals (but i havent figured out specifics) from movies. The EQ is stuck on "Rock Concert" making voices distant and hollow/tinny...

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hey, I believe I am the only person who has ever mentioned the Lab Gruppen PLM10000Q on here; probably most people do not know about the existence of this amp, which is easiest to describe as a Crown I-Tech HD amp on steroids :D Basically it is 4x 2350 watt amps (@ 2 Ohms), with 96kHz Dolby...
