  1. radio signal thru sub

    AV Home Theater
    Hi, I sometimes get radio broadcasts thru my subs (Klispch). It happens even when the subs are powered up but the sub cable is not connected to my receiver. The sub cable is about 30' long...I assume it's acting like an antenna. When I switch the phase a couple of times, it seems to go away...
  2. Listening to Dishtv's Sirius radio through home theater

    System Setup and Connection
    Hello, Trying to help a friend out, who's setup I have not seen yet. Below is about all he knew about what he was trying to do so thought I'd ask around before going over to his place in a few days to check it out. He's looking for pretty much the most basic setup for the sole purpose of...

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I have a Pioneer Elite SC-37 which I love.. I have been having trouble with the Sirius internet radio. When I select it on the receiver the receiver hangs at 'connecting...' I have re-flashed the firmware to no avail. I have re-entered the user name and password and I get the following...
  5. Radio Shack Sound Level Meters

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Here are the schematics of the old analog Radio Shack SPL meter (33-2050) and the newer digital readout meter (33-2055). They both show woefully inadequate coupling capacitors. Upping these should help the performance of this meter by an order of magnitude.
  6. is this Radio Shack SPL okay?

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Being UK based means getting a Radio Shack SPL meter wasn't easy - I eventually came across a vendor (Keene Retail) selling them on Amazon.co.uk. When I read through the order after I'd ordered it, it had the model number as 33-099. Looking back in here: Read more...
  7. United Radio's QC is top notch!

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Sent in my refurb Denon X1100W in for repair (under warranty) and they fix the power supply. Before shipping it out they put it through some tests and found that the headphone output wasn't working so they ordered a part and fixed that. They were quick to respond to ALL of my emails throughout...

    AV Home Theater
    So I personally saw this coming after they pulled out of Canada several years ago. Radio Shack has filed for chapter 11 Story here When I was younger they were the place to go to get the odd parts and gadgets for audio.
  9. REW SPL Meter VS Radio Shack SPL Meter

    REW Forum
    When I saw this bug fix below I decided to buy a UMIK-1 from Cross Spectrums Labs and upgrade REW to beta release 23. • Bug fix: SPL readings from USB mics were 6 dB low (verified on UMIK-1, suspected to affect Omnimic and UMM-6 also). REW recognized the UMIK-1 and I used the zero degree cal...
  10. IcontrolAV5 Internet radio

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I've just down loaded the icontrolAV5 app on to my iPad for the first time. Is it just me or does anyone else get very annoyed with the Internet radio feature of the app? Take your finger off the screen for a second to long and it jumps right back to the beginning of the station list where you...
  11. Rew/umik-1 vs. radio shack vs avr mic

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    My AVR mic sets levels very even, the radio shack meter confirms the levels were set at 75db. The UMIK-1 and REW combo measure about 3 db lower. Normally I would take the UNIK-1 any day over the rat shack meter, but i find it odd that the rat shack is matching what the AVR is supposed to be...

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I have just received my Radio Shack 33-2055 meter and I install new battery and turn on and get the LO display on all settings. My iphone app db meter is reading around 60 db but the Radio Shack meter does not register a reading at all. Just LO. I am assuming that the meter is faulty and will...

    After updating to the horrid new ios7 for my iPhone and the updated iTunes software for my 9 year old laptop, I discovered iTunes radio. I'm not sure if it was there before, but I really like it. I fell in love with Pandora when it released and have updated everything I have to accomodate it...

  16. Why does my Radio Shack SPL read Maximum when I plug in an Output Cable?

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I am taking measurements with REW but have a small problem. As soon as I plug in an RCA to 3.5mm jack cable into the output connecter the guage reads maximum. My PC still manages to get proper readings so I am curious as to why this is happening. Thanks in advance.
