  1. Home Theater System Recommendations
    I have old Sansui speakers, they still sound excellent after 30+ years, but the wife does not want to see any wires anymore so I will go with in-wall speakers. I know, a lot of you will tell me that it will not sound the same; but I'm over 60 :olddude:now and not sure I would hear a big...
  2. REW Forum
    Hi, I'm going through the REW Step-by-Step guide (Rev 5.43, June 3, 2017) and saw it recommends using a boom mic stand. What, if any, is the advantage of a boom stand over a cheaper, generic mic stand? I can find generic mic stands much cheaper and don't want to spend the extra money for...
  3. SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Hi everyone! My mic stand busted at its 360-degree swivel joint (in the horizontal plane), which is threaded but won't seem to screw back on. I have to basically push it down so that it snaps into place, only to have it snap back out again after only a few swivels. Sorry, I don't remember the...

    Well, it's been a long time coming but they are up and running. I'd like to thank Danny for such and awesome speaker design. I would like to thank Ruben for a work of art. They are simply gorgeous. Oh, and HEAVY. His attention to every detail makes these truly beautiful speakers. They...
  8. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Guys I am looking around for a great sounding sub amp that isn't too expensive. I would like at least 250W sustained at 8 ohms mono. I could use up to 800W RMS, but I never listen loud enough for that. What would be your choice for a nice transparent sounding mono amp that isn't too...
  9. System Setup and Connection
    Hi all, I'm building speaker stand for my 5.1 home theater. My front speaker stand will be so the tweeter is at ear level like it is supposed to be. I was going to do the same thing for my rear speaker until I read somewhere this week-end that the rear speaker in a 5.1 system should be above...
  10. Home Audio Acoustics
    Is there anything wrong with putting tower speakers on the TV stands? my TV is actually hung on the wall, speakers are mythos one towers. Thinking about getting a 75" media console and placing the towers on top of the console. Cosmetically I think it might look ok, maybe even better than on the...
  11. Home Audio Subwoofers
    Just a general question while researching subwoofers. I noticed that in addition to stand alone subwoofers, some manufacturers are selling in wall subwoofers. Is there a quality difference between in wall and stand alone? I am assuming, stand alone is best? Any thoughts?

    Has anyone else had difficulty finding a stand to place their microphone, vertically oriented, at seated listener ear height, which I estimate to be 39 inches? (Of course, ear height will very depending on the listener and type of seating, but 39 inches is my best estimate for my situation.) I...

    Forgive me if this is the wrong forum, but I need a TV stand and it doesn't look like the ones I've been seeing will work for me. I have a 50" plasma screen TV that's currently sitting atop my Polk PSW505, which is front & center of the room.. The TV needs to be a few inches higher and I'd...

    Is there a way to install REW on a PC without internet? My PC is a stand-alone machine. I installed the latest Java Runtime environment and when I run the REW installer, the first thing it tries to do is install Java Runtime Environment from the internet.
