Often times there are either recommendations for changes (like updating a capacitor in the crossover) or desires to modify our speakers (like remove a crossover) or to have some other audio equipment modification done, and many of us ask: “who could do this for me?”.
This thread is to collect...
My Monster Power HTS 5100 died yesterday.
I'm looking at the APC AV H15 to replace it.
Has anyone used this or had experience with it?
Or does anyone have any similarly priced recommendations?
I can pick up the APC for less than $250.
Any recs for system that would handle whole house audio? We are looking to outfit 4 zones with speakers and we would like to be able to use some sort of a unit to control the sound... like an iPad or something similar.
We probably need 4-5 zones - master, outdoor, family room, kitchen,...
I'd mentioned in the Sunday Morning Music thread that I'm spending a lot of time on the road these days. To that end I recently put together a reasonably high end portable headphone rig using a 7th Gen iPod Classic (160G), an ALO Audio Continental V2 headphone amp with an ALO Cricket LOD/Line in...
I grew up in the late 60s and 70s listening to The Beatles, Zeppelin, Iron Butterfly and the like so deep down I am a rock guy.
Having said that, the only evidence that we have been visited by life from another planets is of course, Mr Miles Davis.
Wikipedia claims he was born in Illinois,...
I went with some friends Friday evening to the Bass Concert Hall, at the University of Texas, to see Joe Lovano and Dave Douglas Quintet. Wow! It was quite a show. Here's a clip from some other performance of this group.
Also, this Friday I'm...
What did you all think?
I recorded the entire show and just watched the musical performances.
Definitely worked for me. Quite good in that compressed format.
Please correct me if m wrong but it seems to me that most new dac and even Source are now incorporating volume function/control.
Are we about to see a change where the Pre will eventually disappear from the audio chain? may be the next generation will not even bother with a Pre. Does the...
In this video, the Japanese built a xylophone going downhill in a forest. A wooden ball descends through gravity and plays a piece by J.S. Bach. It is an extraordinary performance when we consider that the length of each wood strip, cut in the form of a V to guide the ball, must be calculated to...
Dolby Atmos will require more ML speakers and a Processor which can deliver Dolby Atmos sound. Is this kind of system possible in a Home Theater? Would ML speaker be better suited to a Dolby Atmos Home Theater?
Since the SACD DSD streams fed by the Denon players through the AVP preamp are missing 10dB of level, I needed a way to compensate for that when playing those discs. And since I use a speaker processor that has all kinds of controls, including a new option to create iPad 'control panels' for it, I...
okay. it's been a long haul but i think i have the room "this close" to laid out. I hate tearing out my own construction so i've really been aiming to nail down the layout of the basement before putting up walls (and figuring out how to put a closet into the new bedroom is proof i don't over think...
so i just received my new iMac and have everything set up and my setup does not work with the Squeezebox server now. There is something with OS X that has to do with the computer going to sleep and therefore disconnecting from the server making SB pretty much useless! I have searched the forums...
I'm Looking for a tube sound but own a Emotiva EPA-2 Amp. I am being told to go to vintage for the preamp. Suggestions? :bowdown:
I am sneaking in a book review without mod approval; I assume it is okay as it is brief.

Got something new to share this year or perhaps a favorite recording from years past that keeps coming to the forefront.....well share it with the group !
Due to my room restraints and design, most of my equipment is in an amp Rack with rack mounts in front corner of my room. I simply cut a hole into the existing wall and framed it so the rack mounts could screw on.
I like to listen to music / concerts loud. I have 2 JL Audio Fathom 113's stacked...
My current set up consists of a yamaha rxa2020 receiver feeding a pair of w4s mono amps to a pair of theos. At the moment I use my apple tv to stream all my music from my iTunes library which is stored onto a Mac mini, via hdmi to the yamaha receiver.
The room has also been treated and I...

There's a thread going on in the Klipsch Forum about frequency responses of loudspeakers and our hearing threshold. Someone posted this link in the thread where you can test your hearing. It's not very scientific, but I've tried it and I'm surprised that I can just hear the 16Hz tone. It's all...
