  2. Care Chapel
    I have been lurking for sometime more just reading about HT systems and what theJman has to share in his reviews and I discovered the Chapel today. If no-one see's or responds, thats ok. I'm extremely fortunate really, all things considered, and it's great to see a BB where folks can share...
  3. REW Forum
    Much like many others, I am a newb regarding REW. Set up REW yesterday and started playing around. Today took some more educated measurements. 3 subs total, 2 ported Dayton 460HO's up front, one ported UXL in back of room. Room 20' x 22' red line is 1st measurement without Audyssey xt32...
  4. Home Theater System Recommendations
    Moved into home w/ MTX Blueprint CD820C on 4 corners. I've installed a higher end Marantz receiver w/ a powered subwoofer. While thise speakers sound good, I'd like to know if there would be a noticeable difference by an upgrade. The room is around 22x28 foot but then is open into another...
  5. AV Home Theater
    Guys, I’m planning to create a big home theater in my house! I have a two-story home and will use 2 video panels on the first floor and one panel on the second floor. I will be buying an hdmi matrix switcher for easy control. There are so many brands on the market, likes Atlona, Gefen, Kramer...
  6. Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    I added a 3TB WD My Book USB hard drive to my WD TV Live Plus media player last fall and it seems to be humming along quite smoothly. I have two other media players, an Iomega with a built in 1TB drive and the other, an Android TV box with a USB 1TB Seagate drive. I'm happy with the the...
  7. Home Theater Design and Construction
    In looking to build a portable studio, I found this video online and am wondering if anyone can help me by giving me some input. I'm in a rather undesirable living environment but have access to a basement where an idea like this could be employed, but I'm not sure how great it is...
  8. REW Forum
    I only have a minidsp to control the subwoofers so that's the area I can work on currently. I'm curious on so much and I don't have enough free time to read for hours.. MiniDSP EQ hasn't been adjusted in any way yet. What does the waterfall graph of my 0-100 range tell me about my setup...
  9. CD Players | Turntables
    So, saw this today. A company in Japan has come out with a turntable that uses a laser to read the vinyl. Here is the link: http://elpj.com/ Any thoughts?
  10. Home Audio Acoustics
    Ok, well I finally got carpet in the HT. I have 4 SI HT18s (one in each corner). Each 12 cubes tuned to around 17hz. My build thread is below for anyone that wants to see the room layout...
  11. Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    Looking at snagging 2 HT-18's before they go away but have some questions. From what I've seen these model good in larger boxes. What I'm looking at in WinISD as the best option is a 6 cubic foot box. I cant really go bigger than that with the space I have. Does anyone know of a flatpack for...

  13. DIY Speakers
    Hi Folks, I am new to the DIY scene and have just built some speakers for the very first time. I have gone for open baffle due to the following reasons; 1. Little or no woodworking skills. 2. Minimal tools required. 3. I have a small garage with no work bench. 4. My wife likes speakers to be...
  14. Home Audio Acoustics
    Originally to be located on the left wall and incurring reflection and placement issues, if it makes a big difference I can build a wall in the center facing the house front and drape covered window/walls. It would eliminate having to pull the towers 3-4’ out from the wall (as there would be...
  15. Home Theater Design and Construction
    Originally on the left wall with sound and placement issues, if it makes a big difference I can build a wall in the center facing the house front and drape covered walls. It would eliminate having to pull the towers 3-4’ out from the wall (as there would be none), optimize surround locations...
  16. Home Audio Speakers
    I'm certainly no audiophile, but I do love good sounding music. This is for a 2 ch comparison on these speakers. I'm wanting to get another pair for a different room and want to try something else. I currently have a HT setup consisting of Boston Acoustics A360s with their matching center and...

  18. HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    I need to get a new display and am thinking of getting a 4K one from Samsung. I know that there is not a whole lot of content out there right now, though this display will hang on my wall for at least 5-6 years so I'd like to try to future proof it with 4K as much as I can. I do have a Sony...
  19. Two Channel Audio
    Hi guys, I'll be perfectly honest right now. I'm an HT guy, not a two channel or tube amp guy. I have an opportunity to purchase a set of Pathos IN Power mono amps and a set of PSB Synchrony 1 speakers for $5000, all cables included. Do you think this is a reasonable price? If you click on...
  20. Home Audio Speakers
    I had an opportunity to listen to the new Focal Aria 906 bookshelf speakers in a dealers showroom this weekend. They sounded very good to me and I thought superior to a number of other speakers costing more that were in this same room. But I did not hear them in reference to products that I...
