    Do small speakers make things sound small?

    Both of these pairs of speakers (Speedster TMM, Adire Kit281) are tower speakers. The Kit281 are rather large towers, since they are ported with two 8" woofers in a MTM design. There could be another culprit; I have an active crossover that pre-dates digital/Minidsp, which has the ability to...

    Do small speakers make things sound small?

    I finally go around to measuring my HT setup, as theorized, yes, it would appear that 100-170hz is considerably higher than my 2ch setup in my other room. Outside of that range, the speedsters seem to have a much more flat response curve in general. Note that I am also aware of the 1K to 2K...

    Do small speakers make things sound small?

    Here is my 2.1 channel setup, with the subwoofer not active. PC directly to amplifier. I'm no REW expert, so excuse any mistakes I've made.

    Do small speakers make things sound small?

    First, thank you for the response. My summer has been consumed with a pool/deck building project, so time spent on my audio has taken a back burner, sorry for the late responses. I am not high-passing the monitors in this current setup and this room. Truth be told, it sounded "small" in...

    Do small speakers make things sound small?

    Do small speakers produce small sound? My setup: Electronics ICePower 200ASC DIY fed by a Topping E50 DAC. I've used CamilloDSP on my MoodeAudio and REW to do some room corrections, and I'm also using Dayton LF1 to adjust the room response for my subwoofer. Speakers DIY Speedster TMM...

    Topping E50 Review (Balanced DAC)

    My E50 has introduced what sounds like a ground-loop hum during some playback, some silence, but now 100% of the time during standby. When in standby, it buzzes loudly. Like so: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1BUhF7HkpEIxfqNXNUanS0z7gx1IkSwFT/view?usp=sharing The power supply I'm using is...

    Onkyo TX-RZ50 Review (Home Theater AVR)

    Pretty sure they’re like $7000 and $9000. Not sure what dealer prices they are.

    Onkyo TX-RZ50 Review (Home Theater AVR)

    Onkyo TX-RZ50 Review (Home Theater AVR)

    The 5.4, not the 3.4 is the alternative.

    Onkyo TX-RZ50 Review (Home Theater AVR)

    Power limiting without ever even seeing a 4ohm load, or any specific setting within the unit enabled. This seems like an obvious firmware bug. I'm curious though; Is this what a 6ohm vs. 8ohm setting would actually look like in practice?

    Can Dirac overcome the Onkyo RZ50 shortcomings? X3700H instead?

    Given the stellar reviews of the X3700H (sinad, amplifiers) vs. the RZ50 sub-par (sinad, clipping at 4ohm loads) reviews: Would a fully tweaked (using MultiEQ app) X3700H outperform a RZ50, all else being equal? Or is Dirac such an advancement in technology that it can help the RZ50 sound...

    Onkyo TX-RZ50 Review (Home Theater AVR)

    AIYIMA A07 TPA3255 Review (Amplifier)

    I hear you. I cannot explain why it goes away when swapping amplifiers. Only difference is one is balanced TRS to unbalanced RCA vs. balanced TRS to Balanced XLR inputs.

    AIYIMA A07 TPA3255 Review (Amplifier)

    Hey guys, I got my Aiyima about a month ago, and its developed a distinct popping when a track starts/stops. It did not do this out of the box. Setup: PI4 USB w/Moode Audio > Topping E50 (volume controlled here) > Aiyima with volume set to 3/4 or sometimes full. When I switch to my DIY...

    Integra DRX 5.4 vs. Onkyo TX-RZ50

    Anyone know what justifies the $600 price difference between the Integra DRX 5.4 and the Onkyo TX-RZ50? They seem functionally identical.

    9.2 Atmos AVR questions on pre-amp/channels

    Its also a 9.2 processor only. So it can't run 7.1.4 regardless of amplification.

    9.2 Atmos AVR questions on pre-amp/channels

    It can't run surround + surround back + height 1 + height 2. I ended up downloading the user manual and it does indeed show that you can use an external amplifier for height 2, then use internal amplification for surround back + height 1

    9.2 Atmos AVR questions on pre-amp/channels

    Looking to try either the Integra 3.4 or the Onkyo RZ50, both of which are 9.2 enabled AVRs. I was looking thru the back panel though, and found that you cannot have both rear channel AND overhead Atmos enabled at the same time. Question though; Is this a processing limitation AND an...

    Reference data and/or AI to up-convert compressed audio on streaming

    I'm just talking about the compressed audio that Netflix, Amazon, HBO Max, etc.. streams with their content, not all compressed audio in general. A way to simulate this is if your AVR has a "night mode" you can enable. Also, perhaps there is something else I'm unaware of going on.. maybe they...
