  1. Pioneer MCACC PRO not setting ref level

    System Setup and Connection
    I apologize in advance if this is in the wrong place or if it's a repeat. I did some searching and did not find what I was looking for. I am using a Pioneer sc-lx801 in a 5.1 configuration. I start with full auto mcacc. It sets up my speakers as large. I change them to small with xover at...
  2. Timing Ref Requirement for IR Measurement

    REW Forum
    I'm new to time-domain measurements and have a question, because most of the time I take things literally. But first, some background: It's no secret REW is able to use timing references in measurements to calculate system delays so that separate measurements have the same absolute timing...
  3. B&K Ref 50 series 2

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Picked up a B&K Ref 50 series 2, love the sound as I still have my Ref 20 and AV5000 amp. But after playing for 10 minutes or so or when I change volume the Ref 50 gives me and EE**** error and shuts off. I know B&K is no more. I tried reseting the unit but still the same. I know there is a...
  4. [REQ] preserve ref time on trace arithmetic (or add a copy function)

    REW Forum
    atm you can copy a trace using (A+B)/2 but the copied measurement is left with ref time of t=0 no matter where the original traces are. It would be nice if this were set automatically and/or an explicit copy option were added that avoided the need to use trace arithmetic at all. On a related...
  5. [REQ]: Increase ref time to 2 (or 3) decimal places & add an "align all measurements to time=x" feature

    REW Forum
    I have a couple of feature requests 1) increase the no of decimal places in the window box for ref time to 2 (or 3) decimal places 2) add a feature that lets you enter a ref time and then REW will automatically move each measurement so that the detected ref time is moved to that point in time...

  10. B+K Ref 200.5/ Emotiva XPA -5

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I have a chance at a B+K Reference 200.5 for a real good deal. I was wondering if you all could advise me on which to get and why between this and an XPA-5? I looked at specs and they pretty well match up except for gain BK/28db, XPA/32 db. For receiver, I have Onkyo 806.
  11. new to this stuff, questions on ref volume

    General Service and Technical Information
    I have a pair of PSB image b6 bookshelf speakers paired with the Onkyo TX-NR609. When i push the volume up to 82, a little red light ("ref") comes on. Now, i'm assuming that this means that I should be able to play music/movies etc at this volume without worrying to much, but man it sounds loud...

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I know a few of the av123 refugees have Ref1/100 HTs. Wondering if anyone can recommend an avr that powers them adequately? I was using Emotiva separates with Ref1s/100s and was quite happy, but then I made some changes. I really need a one box solution due to space constraints. Any ideas...
