    Revel b110v2 or b112v2 experience?

    These are on a major sale right now and while beautiful to look at the specs published at Revel don't show much depth, esp compared to a less expensive offering like the SVS SB3000. Just wondering if anyone has one or more of these and can share their experience. I read that Revel also blind...

The STR has the latest firmware and the ARC Genesis program is the latest version. I connect the STR...

    ASR Annual Awards

    I think we need ASR annual awards. Not the typical "Best Amplifier" stuff you see in the mags but awards that are of actual use to folks looking to buy. For example, "Best UI in a Streamer", "Most Transformative Component" (I would lobby for the STR preamp), "Best Engineered DAC", "Most...

    Is it important to have uniform amplification across the LCR channels?

    I was investigating Perlisten speakers for my 7.4 HT system (details below) and in emails with Matt Poes he mentioned as an aside that having uniform amplification across the LCR channels would be ideal. At the time I had March P701 monoblocks for R/L and an AHB2 in mono for the center. I...

    The role of subwoofer DSP in overall room correction

    If we agree that room correction should focus on the lower frequencies (sub Schroeder) it seems to me that the eq features in subwoofers might play an important role. If effective, could this be enough for many of us, esp when working with simpler two channel setups and accurate speakers? If...

    Justification of an expensive purchase

    I spotted the new Matrix Sabre 3 DAC/streamer thing and of course had to buy one. The discussion in my head between my rational self and my audioself went something like this: audioself: OMG this thing is gorgeous! Look at the glass, must be Gorilla glass, or better probably. It's Matrix...
