    Hi, In these days whre Netflix, cinemanow and other streaming platform offers HD and now UltaHD 4k streaming movies, does it still make sense to upgrade to the latest BD player and buy bd or ultrahd bd media vs renting it on a streaming service ? Alain :smile:
  2. Headphones | Head Gear
    While at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF) recently, I had a chance to hear the current HD 650 and compare it directly with the classic HD 600. It was clear that the difference between the two models is much smaller now than it was with the earlier HD 650 that I first compared to. As Solderdude...
  3. REW Forum
    I started from scratch this afternoon. I've got about 30measurements saved in REW with various crossovers and sub distance settings, with and without Audyssey activated. First, I measured the sub response with no filters or Audyssey activated, and without the mains connected. I don't recall...
  4. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    After reading way too much about DIY subwoofers (love learning new things!)....one factor that I always hit a wall with is the happy wife factor. I'd like to add a second sub to my HT, and instead of just buying another sub I want to have 'fun' with the whole DIY sub project. I probably could...
  5. Home Audio Acoustics
    Hi everyone - I have been working to learn REW so I can optimize the sound treatments on my theater build in progress. I'm trying to interpret these graphs, however I'm confused that there doesn't seem to be much difference between treated and untreated. The treated measurements had OC703 laid...

    This is it... the famous post padding thread so that you can get your first five post out of the way quickly. The old post padding thread got wiped out accidentally... we apologize to those who may be inconvenienced.

    With the new house comes new challenges. I finally have nearly finished the install of the home automation system and am now working on the family room stereo. Through some help here (Thank you!) I have finalized my receiver and sub plans and now need to narrow down my speaker choices. I am...

    I just got word from one of the Blu-ray studio's PR people that Stop Making Sense is coming to Blu-ray October 13th. It's one of the greatest concert films ever made, featuring the Talking Heads with David Burne's musical genius. Stop Making Sense 25 Anniversary Blu-ray. Has it been that long...
  10. REW Forum
    Upon occasion of removing most of the Auralex bass blockers from listening/family/guest/kid room today leaving one in each of the top 4 corners (too hardcore of a look for a multipurpose room:heehee:) and nothing else, I proceeded to rerun REW. Before today, I was experimenting with 2 full...
  11. Home Theater Design and Construction
    Hi, I'm about to build a theater in my basement, and was wondering if anyone had any ideas for increasing the perceived height of the space? I have lots of width, and length(13X24) but only a few inches over 7 feet in height. I won't be using the whole length of the room either, probably only...
