    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    My interface is not stable in multi-channel mode using ASIO4ALL with REW. I'm able to direct test tones to each channel individually and in combination, albeit with much switching noise in the process. At its best, the ASIO4ALL driver gets reset, forcing an REW restart or laptop reboot. At...

    REW Forum
    I have used REW for the last 2 years for valve amplifier restoration assessment using the spectrum analyser to view hum, noise floor and harmonic levels. My use is not typical as I don't use most of the superb functions and features that REW garners so much interest for. I have happily used a...

    Was just over @ Monoprice & found this write up. Looks very promising. It even sounds like it could power you projector (kills the worry about suppling power up there) with up to 100 watts able to be delivered through it! http://www.monoprice.com/pages/usb_31_type_c

    I have an Oppo BDP-103D that I like very much. The only problem with it is that is will occasionally lock up playing audio files from an external HDD. I have had many discussions with Oppo tech support about this. They claim the problem is corrupted files, but it seems to me that the Oppo is...
