    Post Directiva r1 Passive Crossovers here

    The mirror filter transfer function is pretty cool stuff I must admit, if a PC based active system is the goal. For passive filters, yes you can simulate passive filters in VituixCAD and export the result directly to APO EQ as an impulse response. Not just passive filters, but any filter than...

    Designing headphone EQ with VituixCAD

    Scanning an image is actually the least preferred method, VituixCAD is meant to be used with real measured data from systems like ARTA, REW, SoundEasy, Clio, etc. So you can import any csv / frd type of data, or complete IR to FR processing using impulse response exported directly from ARTA...

    Designing headphone EQ with VituixCAD

    Since you have peak of nearly 6dB in that response, just make sure that whatever EQ system you use has an overall attenuation of -6dB so that your EQ stays under 0dBFS to avoid digital clipping.

    Designing headphone EQ with VituixCAD

    We can take this EQ process a bit further using APO EQ. We can generate a "mirror EQ" to automatically normalize the headphone response to any target. VituixCAD Mirror Transfer Function EQ Step 1: Trace the deviation from target response and load in as a driver file just as the instruction in...

    Designing headphone EQ with VituixCAD

    Well, you can get fairly close to what you are after with the combination of APO EQ and either VituixCAD or Rephase. It is not quite a live adjustment as you would get with the Parametric EQ bands in APO EQ, but as easy as making the adjustments you want, then save a file and load a file into...

    Designing headphone EQ with VituixCAD

    I'm not sure what you are looking for in the impulse response for a headphone EQ either! The filter transfer function that I mentioned is the right middle chart on the main window.

    Glad you found it helpful. If course, its important to keep an eye on the filter transfer function as well, to make sure that you are not over-compensating with extreme gains.

    Outlaw Model 5000 Multichannel Amplifier Review

    RCA to XLR is a great way to go, you get the noise reduction benefit of XLR with the unbalanced signal and extra conductor. The monoprice product is probably just fine for the task, and very affordable. A power strip is a power strip, not much to talk about there just get one that fits your needs.

    Outlaw Model 5000 Multichannel Amplifier Review

    I would infer that the information in the overview that you quote is making incorrect assumptions about the power supply arrangement based on incorrect information of a simple Class A/B design. Don't believe everything you read on the internet ;). I wouldn't suspect a complete redesign for the...

    Outlaw Model 5000 Multichannel Amplifier Review

    What gives you that impression? From my inspection (visual and multimeter) it appeared similar to what I see for most class-G/H amplifiers, where 2 voltage rails have individual capacitors, all referenced to common point. Here's an example schematic from quick internet search for class-G...

    What Speakers Would You Like Amir To Measure Next?

    I'd like to see anything from Legacy Audio, but preferably one of the models with the dual large and small AMT tweeters. I'd also like to see something from Wilson Audio tested.

    Designing headphone EQ with VituixCAD

    You are correct, and yes the software has a silly name, maybe just to make sure you don't take things too seriously and have some fun with it :)

    Designing headphone EQ with VituixCAD

    Thank you for the clarification and encouragement. I agree, small corrections may not be very effective, the EQ I've provided above uses 6-8 bands with focus on getting the response to follow a flat trend line, so if I were to smooth the response greatly it would follow a straight line. The...

    Designing headphone EQ with VituixCAD

    Thanks for the info. Credentials aside, it doesn't take a trained listener to EQ to a target curve, which appears to be the utmost goal in every EQ profile that I pulled up in the list. The customization notes are a nice addition for the layperson that may just be entering values blindly without...

    Designing headphone EQ with VituixCAD

    I like to DIY, and also didn't know such a thing existed. It is nice to see at least, that my EQ preset for the two headphones mentioned above is remarkably similar to the Oratory preset, however these presets don't appear to have any consideration for distortion performance and can get a bit...
