  1. IB - Infinite Baffle Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hi All! I’m new to the forum, and I’ve been contemplating building an IB for some time. I currently have two Dayton Audio 12” reference subwoofers in sealed enclosures that I built about three years ago. They’ve definitely treated me well. I recently moved into a new house with a nice large...

    Hi Everyone. I'm brand new to the forum and hope someone can help me. I have a 2.2 channel Roon / HQ Player server-based system. The speaker configuration is two satellite speakers and two subwoofers - each with a dedicated DAC channel. I'm currently running 80hz filters in HQ Player between...

    Hi, I'm new to this forum and just signed up to aid and guide my journey into acoustic room treatment. REW is obviously new to me as well, and I'm still familiarising myself with the controls so to speak, but I'm already very impressed with its breadth and capabilities. I've spent the last week...

    Does any one know how to setup Time Reference in REW when you are not using a physical audio card. Is there a software driver or mixer where I can set this up? I am using the Dayton UMM-6 mic and a USB DAC as my audio devices.
  5. Two Channel Audio
    Hi Guys, I've just bought a Onkyo Integra A809 (I know the R1 stands for the technology used by onkyo for using one remote control for the Amp, CD and Deck) but i'll like to know if any of you have this, (or had) and you opinions, Thanks Zef

    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...

    Has anyone heard any more on when the Vizio Reference Series will be sold in the US?
  8. Home Audio Speakers
    When someone says I listen to music at reference levels, what does that mean? Are they referring to the volume? Depending on your reciever 0-100 or -dbs to +dbs. If so what volume is reference? Are they referring to not adjusting channels to different volumes on different movies? For example...

    John, I don't know if you'll see this but I wondered if in the future you'll have a way of dealing with this? As REW adjusts t=0 to correspond with the impulse peak when using this mic, presumably that means that all of my phase measurements for different drivers is also off? As is it obviously...

    So I've just about given up on any big box retailer and home theater stores in Dallas drive me crazy because they assume every customer has no clue what they want and can spend 20k on a room all day long. I have found this site an incredibly valuable resource and I have a few questions for your...
  11. REW Forum
    I am asking myself what rew is doing when calibratin the soundcard. is he assuming that the input is perfectly flat and measuring the output or the opposite? This information is necessary to me because I am using an hifimediy USB sabre 9023 DAC as output, the internal soundcard as input and will...
  12. System Setup and Connection
    I would like to use the Marantz SA-8004 through my Ref 50 and utilize the highest SQ possible. I would think that going analog through the Ref 50 utilizing the Cirrus DAC in the 8004 would be the best choice. Granted the 8004 is 2-CH only so I have 3 choices: 1. Digital to the Ref 50 but I...

    Vizio is making a move. The long time manufacturer of solid Hi-Def televisions traditionally offered at reasonable prices recently revealed they are shedding some weight for their Ultra Hi-Def (UHD) lines while taking a crack at the high end market. Interestingly (but, perhaps, not...

    I am now using a Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 which is connected via FireWire to my HTPC and via the 6 line outs to the 7.1 multichannel inputs on my processor. This means I have no spare analogue output to use as a loopback. I can think of 3 possible solutions but am unsure if any of them will...

    Hello, i am an avid game player as well as blu ray watcher. Love hi def stuff. Last night i was playing mass effect 3 and in one of the final battles had serious reference level capabilities for showing off a system. I was playing the Call to Arms scene near the end, where you mobilize all the...

  17. REW Forum
    hi everyone, I already have this mic and was wondering if it would be at least as good as some of the $100 or less options like the behringer ECM 8000, nady CM100, or the DBX RTA-M for use with the REW software. Also, what would be the recommended amount of bass traps in a small bedroom studio...

    Thanks to all who offered help in my search for a new amp. I found a like new EMOTIVA XPR-2 on the big e-bay and I should have it here no later than this coming Thursday. I have heard so much about these guys that I couldn't resist the chance to try one out. I am looking for a Reference B&K...
  19. REW Forum
    Hi There, I've just taken a measurement of my rooms frequency.Is it possible to now create a flat frequency reference line (using REW wizard) in order for me to gauge more accurately how much room acoustic treatment I need? I'm sure it has something to so with the calibration settings in REW,but...

    I just bought a B+K Reference 200.5 amp. The unit powered up, done a sound check with my Onkyo test tones.All channels checked out good but the center channel. So I went to investigate, heard a faint buzz and smelled like something was roasting electrically. I immediately unplugged everything...
