    Rythmik L12 Subwoofer Review

    Your original hypothesis remains speculative conjecture on your part because you dont have data to show what an F12 would behave like without the servo. Secondly between the 40 to 60 HZ range, SPL was off by 1.3 db at worst which is well within the pack. Once you start going deeper, the F12...

    Rythmik L12 Subwoofer Review

    What kind of distortion are we talking about and where in the frequency range does that lie. Human hearing isnt linear across the frequency range either.

    Rythmik L12 Subwoofer Review

    Objective measurements would be nice to quell subjective opinions like "To me, this suggests that their servo-whatever technology is not effective on subwoofers smaller than 15",....."

    Rythmik L12 Subwoofer Review

    As I stated earlier, its valuable for those who already own Rythmik subs and have a good idea of their performance capabilities including sound quality.

    Why Don't High SINAD Receivers Exist?

    This is on the premise that your receiver identifies having a subwoofer connected to it. Go into the manual setup, select speakers and select Parametric EQ. Go into that menu and set it to THROUGH. This step will ignore any of the YPAO settings. Remain in the manual setup and scroll up to...

    Why Don't High SINAD Receivers Exist?

    I wonder if Storm and JBL are breaking copywrite laws.

    Why Don't High SINAD Receivers Exist?

    Most manufacturers top 3 models provide preouts for all channels and a lot of people have separate amps for the 3 front channels while the AVRs power the surround channels. Im fortunate that none of my rooms were so big that I would tax the power of my AVRs.

    Why Don't High SINAD Receivers Exist?

    Like Frank Dernie pointed out...your biggest source of crosstalk lies with the cartridge on a turntable which is inaudible. Even entry level AVRs best the cartridge by a minimum of an additional 40 db. Comparing inuadibility at this point is rather pointless.

    Why Don't High SINAD Receivers Exist?

    Have you personally heard the effects of crosstalk in an AVR? I have 5 and I have NEVER experienced the effects of crosstalk. Thats just one of those pro seperates camp audiophile myths, convenient to bring up but never physically realized.

    Why Don't High SINAD Receivers Exist?

    For most of my music listening, I would say yes that my mains do not need help in the bass department. I responded to your post because you asserted that AVRs always converted everything into the digital realm and I pointed out that this is incorrect.

    Why Don't High SINAD Receivers Exist?

    Nice post and I agree with you. Some AVRs however, that are fed analog signals have the capability to keep the signal in the analog path. Yamaha is one such brand. Ive set up all 3 AVRs such that Pure Direct (driving my main speakers full range) sounds identical (with the added weight of bass by...

    Relevance of Blind Testing

    Once you realize that AVRs sound the same without DSP and room correction engaged, then I fully agree with what you are saying.

    Relevance of Blind Testing

    I see that we agree.

    Relevance of Blind Testing

    The danger in thinking like this is the basis of all snake oil in the audio industry. It gives creedance incorrectly to biased listening tests, incorrect claims by audiophools who claim their hearing is more sensitive than test equipment.
