    1st lab-grown meat product cleared for human consumption in the U.S.

    Anything to reduce the amount of plant food in the atmosphere and save the polar bears is good in my books. I already have a large preorder in for insect burger patties.

    Dirac Live standalone for PC and Mac

    You can also do the crossover in EAPO. You must target your hardware device and not the Dirac processor.

    Is Crypto Dead?

    Crypto is just getting started. The question is how the fight between centralization and decentralization plays out.

    Second-guessing my purchase

    I use Dirac multi-channel system-wide on my PC and I'd easily pay double the asking price.

    Dirac Live Bass Control coming to Dirac Live Stereo This YEAR!!

    I've grown a few grey hairs where I didn't expect them since I've been waiting for Dirac Live Bass Control.

    3.0 or 3.1 system in Canada for <3k?

    I use my system for everything and I've tested a few speakers reviewed here, including the LS50. The LS50 is the only speaker I wouldn't be happy with for movies/TV/gaming. If your neighbors are out and you decide to have a loud action movie night, you will experience obvious distortion at some...

    Who would buy a speaker without listening to it?

    I think the only proper audition can be had inside your listening space. I feel auditioning speakers outside the listening environment is similar to sitting inside a car at an autoshow.

    Kef Meta or Revel M16 ?

    Had the original LS50s, have the M16s. Prefer the M16s by quite some margin. The LS50s build quality blows away almost everything else I've had, though.

    The myth of "harmful" early reflections - Klaus Rampelmann

    Don't need science for this one. Place your speakers near the sidewalls and experiment with a wide range of toe-in/out.

    Dirac Live Bass Control coming to Dirac Live Stereo This YEAR!!

    I run Dirac off my main PC for my HT/gaming/music system and it works great. Infinite flexibility inside software environment. I've used on-board audio, dedicated sound-cards, and external USB sound-cards all to great success. Xonar U5 (6 channel) and U7 (8 channel) available for $100 or less...

    Dirac Live Bass Control coming to Dirac Live Stereo This YEAR!!

    If you have a PC you can already accomplish this with Dirac by manually mapping channels and creating crossovers in external software, both in VST or dedicated driver mode. Bonus is there's an abundance of cheap sound cards to utilize, many with ASIO and above average performance.

    JBL Studio 530 Speaker Review

    I agree with your assessment, although I no longer have either. The 530s deliver the sense you're in the studio, opposed to the performance being brought into the room. Also, I found the details at all frequencies effortless. I could be wrong, but my assumption is this may have to do with the...

    Wide or narrow dispersion for this room?

    You can also cross the speakers in front of the listening position and eliminate reflections arriving too early from the right wall.

    Klipsch RP-5000F II, RP-6000F II and RP-8000F II reviewed by Erin

    Thanks for the correction. By larger throat you mean the interior extension at the base of the waveguide?

    Klipsch RP-5000F II, RP-6000F II and RP-8000F II reviewed by Erin

    The larger waveguides seem to start beaming earlier, so maybe Klipsch is compensating by increasing on-axis treble energy. Just a guess.

    Burnt smell from speaker, but it’s still working fine. Should I be concerned?

    Have you tried the method using large woofer(s) built into the platform your seat is sitting on? People swear by it after coming from transducers. I'd like to try it myself for both movies and music.

    Burnt smell from speaker, but it’s still working fine. Should I be concerned?

    I'm more worried about your neighbors. Did you call to make sure they're OK?
