    HOSA ODL-312 Toslink to AES/EBU adapter $75 shipped

    Used for about 3 months. Works perfectly. I just ordered a MiniDSP SHD Studio so I don't need this anymore. I used this to connect my TV's digital audio output to my Genelec SAM speakers. Includes shipping in the continental US.

    KEF Q300 $300 split shipping

    KEF Q300 bookshelf speakers. About 6 years old (March 2016 manufacture). I am the original owner. No notable blemishes, but given their age the rating of 8 on US Audio Mart is appropriate. Willing to split shipping via UPS Ground. Pickup welcome in Los Angeles area (Calabasas, 91302 area). I...

    Help me understand how the wireless sub transmitter should be set up

    I have the Anthem MRX 520 preamp/processor and the REL wireless subwoofer transmitter both reviewed by reviewed by @amirm. My sub allows me to set different input voltage levels (Arendal 1961S allows 1V, 2V, 4V or 8V). The Anthem puts out 5.2V on the subwoofer preamp output. But it looks like...

    SOLD!!!: RME ADI-2 DAC $925

    Bought new in September 2020. Excellent condition. Includes original box, remote, and power cord. Used for my Neumann headphones but I stopped using these once I stopped using the headphones about 6 months later. I hooked them up to my Genelec speakers for a few weeks, but other than that...

    Neumann NDH 20 Closed-Back Headphones $325

    I bought these new and used them for 6 months in September 2020. I have not used them in about a year so it makes more sense to sell them. They are in excellent condition. Includes original box and cables that came with the headphones. Will include shipping in the continental US as well as...

    System for music and TV in office < $4300

    Right now I have a 10 year old JL Audio F113 sub, Anthem MRX 520 (with ARC, 100 watts per channel), and 2 KEF Q300 speakers (87 dB, 6 ohm, max output 110 dB according to KEF). Office is 20 x 16 with 10' ceiling (vaulted ranging from 9-11'). This system is plenty loud enough for me. I am...

    Controlled directivity speakers

    I was reading @TimVG @Floyd Toole comment about the importance of directivity control as low as possible (see #1,030 ). I had thought that only Dutch & Dutch and Kii were providing that kind of product. But in looking through @pierre's website, I stumbled across the Revel F226Be...

    2-way speakers designed for subs

    @sigbergaudio has specifically designed a 2-way speaker to be used with a sub. He focused on reducing distortion and loudness capability, which makes complete sense. -3dB is at 90 Hz, and it is a premium-priced product (~$7k). However, as far as I can tell, it is the only such product out...

    Three-way vs two-way plus sub

    I was looking at the Mesanovic RTM10 and the Dutch and Dutch 8C. Both talk about having a "subwoofer". I am not getting into a semantic discussion of what it means to be a subwoofer. I am honestly curious how those speakers are functionally different from something like the Genelec 8340 or...

    SOLD Los Angeles Genelec 8361a pair for sale

    Includes GLM and stands. Black finish, like new condition. Price: $11,000. Local only for now. The obvious question is why I am getting rid of them. Honestly I don't have the space or time to listen to them and they just sit hooked up to my TV. I have not even set them up properly with...

    Genelec 8361 speaker stands

    I was looking at the recommended speaker stands for the Genelec 8361. Given that the speakers weigh 70 pounds (32 kg) each, it concerns me to use the recommended stands. The stands are 16 kg each with a load capacity of 70 kg. My concern is that the speaker-stand combination might be a bit...

    Erin's KEF R5 review

    Erin reviewed this a while back, but nobody has really commented here. Given how popular the R3 is, I thought I would see what people who know more than me think. (Apologies if we are not supposed to cross-post these reviews. I lost track of whether there are any remaining issues between...

    Speaker choices for a reflective, large room

    I would like to get some input on ways to maximize the sound quality, and dialog intelligibility in particular, in our family room. This is really a speaker question because we can't move the listening position (against the wall) or use anything on the walls. So, room treatment, to the extent...

    Raised subwoofer

    One option I am considering is to put a subwoofer is behind the TV, on a 30" tall table (i.e., between the TV and the wall behind the TV). Is this going to be any better or worse than locating it in the same place, but on the floor? Just to be clear, I am asking about on the floor vs raised...

    Strategies for 100-500 Hz

    Subs seem like a "solved" problem for frequencies below about 100 Hz. That doesn't mean "easy", but there are tutorials and software to measure and tweak. And there are cardiod subs (Geithain) as well. Above about 500 Hz, room modes are no longer as problematic, and one can focus on the...

    Practical use of Dutch and Dutch 8c

    As much as I would prefer to get the Genelec 8351b, I think the 8c is a better choice for me. I have done some reading on these, and looked at the user manual, but I would love insight from some users of the 8c on issues they may have run into (and solutions, if they exist). I also have a few...

    Speaker choice - Neumann, Dutch & Dutch, KEF

    I have checked a few options with my spouse for our living room. I would be interested in people's thoughts on the good and bad of these options. You can see in the attached photo, I have been playing around with a center channel -- for many years we simply went with a 2.1 system with KEF Q300...

    Minimum needed for Sennheiser HD6XX

    Getting these for my son and he will use them for gaming from his computer. What is an inexpensive way to drive them? 1) Just run line out from the computer into a headphone amp? 2) Or is there a need to run either USB into a dongle and then to the amp? 3) Or even Toslink into some kind of...

    Speakers optimized for use with subs

    To avoid stepping on the post asking about whether more than 5" mid woofer is needed for subs, I wanted to ask whether anyone makes a speaker that is optimized for use with a sub. By optimized, I mean that it doesn't trade too much sensitivity for extension, and doesn't introduce a port...
