  1. THD tests

    REW Forum
    I'm getting lousy THD results. Has anyone used REW to test receiver THD? If so, how?
  2. 1st Tests + GarageBand Vs UMIK1

    REW Forum
    After some fun getting started with my laptop and REW my UMIK arrived today. Here's how it compared to my GarageBand mic - what do you think? Also I have a bulge @ 50hz and a nasty suck-out/ interference at 128hz - any ideas? Harmon 3770 Wharfedale 10.1 B&W602 sub with X-over at 40hz. G

    Home Theater, Audio and Video News
    At this stage of the game, it's overwhelmingly obvious that Netflix has morphed from a young fighter with potential into a dominant heavyweight champ. Earlier this month, the company announced it has surpassed premium content provider HBO in the realm of subscriber revenue. According to...
  4. Hearing Tests

    Chat Box SWAMP
    Didn't see any other threads here dedicated to hearing or hearing tests other than the tinnitus thread. I thought I'd post my most recent hearing test results for no other reason than discussion. Feel free to post/discuss your own results along with any comments regarding testing methods/etc...
  5. Multi-channel audio tests - Software?

    REW Forum
    Anyone know of any software/disks which can test individual speakers? REW sends out only mono signal. It's a pain having to disconnnect/reconnect speaker wires in order to test them individually.

  7. LAN Speed Tests

    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    I have a multi-purpose computer without a Ethernet drop at its location and I've been on a quest to increase its network speed. I'll eventually run cable, but there is no way I'm working up in the crawl space during the summer in AZ. :sn: Short of running copper, I've tried a number of things...

  9. Thoughts on converting the pink PN.wav to mp3 for certain tests?

    REW Forum
    I was just about to do this so that I could put it on my ipod so that I could RTA test some secondary systems (ie car and 2nd TV) but then was like....wait a minute LOL. Since I know some quality is lost, would some freq maybe be attenuated? I know a pink PN is flat all the way across, would...
  10. Is it working ? any simple tests

    General Service and Technical Information
    Hi, Well I've reached the point where a new AVR is just around the corner. I started visiting this site again to get info on the newer models. With a tight budget the "refurbished" or B-stock has become quite appealing to me. What I am most cautious about is how could I perform simple at...
  11. Best listener position when running tests

    REW Forum
    Hi I've been making some measurements today and I noticed how much of a difference my own position in the room makes to the FR graph results. And this has got me to thinking where the best position for my body is when running sweeps...... Is lying down a good idea? I also tried running an...
  12. REW RTA distortion tests

    REW Forum
    Hi guys, I have just ran some THD distortion test on my dual FI Q18's and this is on my middle tune which is 17.5hz. I did it to these instructions: Use the RTA Function, set Mode to Spectrum, FFT Length to 131072, Averages to 4, Window to Hann. Use the onboard tone generator in REW, fire up...
  13. HDTV tests pit fantasy land specs against real world performance -- guess what happens

    Testing
    Good luck keeping up with the ever changing specs on the latest HDTVs, but as the numbers get more impressive, are the displays actually improving in any noticeable way? Dr. Raymond Soneira , president of DisplayMate, goes about breaking down many of the more often misused and misleading...

    Testing
    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.

    Hi All A bit of background. I am a part time muso and electronics guy who spends most of his spare time working on stuff for the band, home recording, building amps etc and chanced on this site whilst looking for some software like REW! I have a 2.1 system that gets used occasionally when...

    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    Hey everyone. I have an xbox 360 and am interested in ways I can use it to play video from another machine. I saw a post here by WBassett that covered the same topic for the PS3 - so I thought I would start one for the 360. I should note that its January 2008 - and I'm noticing a few changes...

Results and pictures will follow. :) Anthony Gallo TR-1 Audio Pro Level 110 BK XLS300/PR BK Extreme Gradient Evidence MKII DIY...
  19. PS3 Video Server, Media Server Preliminary Setup and Tests

    Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    I reposted this thread over here as well incase there are people using the PS3 solely as a Bluray player and they don't check the Computer and Gaming Console forum. I honestly think this is a very slick feature and addition to the PS3 as not only a BD player but as a full blown media center...

    The mission I chose to accept is one Jim Phelps would probably have turned down! ;) Here is the objective outline. I have a substantial DVD library, somewhere in the neighborhood of 1200-1300 DVDs. A lot of these are movie series boxed sets, or TV series on DVD. The PS3 is much more than...
