    Can Dirac overcome the Onkyo RZ50 shortcomings? X3700H instead?

    They are launching this spring I think. Some EU prices have already been announced by local distributors.

    Onkyo TX-RZ50 Review (Home Theater AVR)

    That’s a bit too hard of an ask for the average enthusiast. What if the task is to integrate 2-4 subs? Do that manually? Reading through forums, less than 50% of the people that attempt it are successful. I’d prefer auto bass management any day compared to an extra resampling. I see your point...

    KEF Q350 Speaker Review

    I am now also considering these for use as surrounds (I'm a fan of coaxials for multichannel systems). Anyone experimented with more solid port plugs than those in the box? Amir mentioned that the provided plugs were not that effective. Can we assume that if we plug the port and cross them to a...

    Genelec 8351B Review (Studio Monitor)

    Were the 8351s ran with 1-2 subs or only by themselves? Monitors + subs is the only valid comparison against a full range tower like the Salon 2

    What budget speakers you like to see reviewed?

    I just bought a pair of Focal Dome Flax as surrounds. In Europe they cost around 300 euros each. Would be great to see how they look on the NFS :-) I would send one over for review but I'm based in Central Europe...

    Multi channel music with active digital speakers

    There are a few threads on this subject in different parts of the internet. The best solution would be an AV processor with digital out signal per channel. Altitude 32 (and a few other processors) do it but not for cheap. There is a hope that Trinnov may release a digital only multichannel...

    new KEF KC62 dual 6.5" subwoofer

    It would be awesome if a reviewer could put them next to each other and take some shots for us to better understand also the size differences. A visual size comparison to a standard 10-12 inch sub would be even better.

    Dutch & Dutch 8c Review

    I may have read that @Spocko was planning on sending one to Amir for testing? Maybe he can give us an update cause many people are eager to see measurements on this :-)

    Genelec 8341A SAM™ Studio Monitor Review

    I wonder if you describe what Amir reported in the measurements as woofer peaking before the woofer-mid transition. This is however more present in the 200-500Hz region. When you refer to the measurements in the manual do you mean the 15 May 17 measurement graph?

    Genelec 8010A Powered Studio Monitor Review

    Thanks for the graphs! Bass response in the left speaker seems to be far superior than the right. Probably the placement in the room is mostly responsible for that, but do you think the proximity to the basstrap helped at all in that respect? In general, did you hear a difference with the...

    Dutch & Dutch 8Cs

    A bit of an odd question - would it be possible to use a D&D 8C horizontally as a centre speaker? Would the dip in dispersion at 1.5khz break intelligibility? (This is from napilopez's measurements) - honestly the vertical directivity is not far from the horizontal :-) Do you see any other...

    Tower vs bookshelf speakers

    What about listening distance? Isn’t it one of the main determinants of tower vs bookcase? I have 2 x 12” subs and still doubting whether my bookcase speakers (Dali Zensor 3) would be good enough for a distance longer than 2.5 meters. Supposedly at 3m the speakers would need to play louder...

    What budget speakers you like to see reviewed?

    A Dali would be a great addition to the measurement database. Arendal and XTZ as well. Especially Arendal is making lots of noise in the EU. Their subs look yummy

    Best floorstanders <£5k/$6k

    It would be so awesome if we could get an ATC speaker, preferably from their mid-ranges to be tested by Amir. For many folks they are considered reference speakers in terms of transparency and realness. I've never heard one in person but I'm convinced enough already to thinking of buying a pair...

    Denon AVR-X3600H AV Receiver Review

    No objection to what you are saying really. I would also prefer the option for only LCR pre-amp mode. I hope we get that in the future. My comment was more on the below scenario, where for 2 channels the 3600 and 3700 are squeaky clean.

    Denon AVR-X3600H AV Receiver Review

    3600 is clean up to 4v apparently--> (for the two fronts)

    Denon AVR-X3600H AV Receiver Review

    My understanding is that hypex-based amps need 2v to shine. On your second q. Still alright to connect as you suggest. But keep in mind that if you want the "clean output hack" you have to be changing the amp-assign setting each time you want to watch a movie. Otherwise the 3600 will be seeing...

    Denon AVR-X3600H AV Receiver Review

    The 3600 has pre-out for the centre and surround channels... The added benefit of the "clean" 2v output is just for the 2 front channels though (if you apply the "hack"). So you should be ok if your power amp is happy with 1.5-1.6v for the centre channel. If you plan to use a Hypex module-based...

    Denon AVR-X3600H AV Receiver Review

    I've had the x3600h for 6 months now, and really enjoying it. Especially the way Audyssey and DEQ worked wonders in my room is phenomenal. For music though I don't help to think that DIRAC and the better DAC of the miniDSP SHD would lift the quality for music listening to the next stage. As...
