    Are SVS subs over-rated?

    I know. Remember that next time you decide to get hysterical over criticism.

    Are SVS subs over-rated?

    I don't really care how many years you have spent buying products. Your post about "slow, inaccurate and with lots of overhang" is an absurd and misleading statement to make. This is how people end up with sealed subwoofers in their open space, listening to 30% THD, because someone told them...

    Are SVS subs over-rated?

    Subs are so extremely sensitive to room and placement issues that these types of issues are almost never the sub's fault, with any vaguely decent designed sub. People will either not fix these issues and then complain, or they'll buy a different sub and declare it's better when the placement is...

    Wharfedale Diamond 12.1 bookshelf speakers Walnut

    Selling this Wharfedale set that I never wound up using. I'm asking $250 OBO in Baltimore MD, can ship (cost tbd) or deal locally. This is the specific speaker used by Amir in his review:

    Smartphones will kill off DSLR's soon/

    Here's an alternate chart I think you'll find informative: Unfortunately don't have separate numerical labels for ILC vs fixed, but it should give the basic picture. The compact/fixed market collapsed. The ILC market has undergone a significant contraction, but it's not nearly as radical and I...

    Upgrade to XenForo with different react options

    Amir, sometimes I just want to laugh at people. Can't I have that much without typing a reply?

    Upgrade to XenForo with different react options

    Basically this is what I'm looking for: I don't know if this requires a version upgrade or is just a setting change in XenForo, but it'd be awfully nice to have the wider range of react emojis. Looks like it was added in 2.1 but might require settings to enable.

    Monitor Audio Silver 100 Review (Speaker)

    Well this is nice to see. I bought a set of MA Silver 500 towers plus the C350 center last year to be my new cine/gaming rig. (At a substantial discount.) I sort of took a gamble on them at the time but spouse was especially fond of the aesthetic and I was a stickler for a speaker with at least...

    Solid Core Wiring

    What I said initially in response - and there are a lot of responses so I don't blame you for losing this bit - what I said is none of these things are happening inside speaker wire. If you would like to design radio equipment or have keen hearing into the megahertz range (or hell, building...

    Solid Core Wiring

    Here's the thing. Let's assume that tunneling is indeed happening between strands. What is actually tunneling? Electrons are the only sane possibility for this discussion, I hope. What's the implication? What are the actual consequences of tunneling between the strands? Electrons cross between...

    Solid Core Wiring

    You have no idea what you're talking about and the supposed physics you're discussing is absolute fantasy nonsense. I don't want to give the impression that this even deserves addressing, because what you said is little more than sciencey sounding words strung together in a grammatically correct...

    Dayton Audio APA1200DSP Review (DSP Amplifier)

    Yeah, the name is very deceiving as it's only rated for nearly 1200W in bridged mode. I guess it's actually exceeding its stereo 4 ohm rating by quite a bit if it's hitting 377W at a 240W rating? Although it's falling a bit short of its 8 ohm rating. The SINAD is a big disappointment but it is...

    What do floor standers really bring to the table?

    Fundamentally, I don't believe in the 80 Hz crossover that is considered the "default value" for the localization boundary. IMO this creates significant subwoofer output in the localizable frequency range, and makes an overall mess of the imaging. Ideally I'd like to cross my fronts at least...

    Wharfedale Diamond 12.1 Review (Speaker)

    Dang, that’s quite a performance at $400/pr. I feel like Wharfedale is typically ignored by audio reviewers.

    Asimov Foundation

    I am a lifelong fan of Asimov's work. Watched the trailer a while back and I still have absolutely no read on whether it'll be any good. I have a sub so I guess we'll see how it goes.

    My Dog - pet thread

    I took that photo shortly after a two day stay in the vet ER where she gave us quite a scare, it was nice to see her smiling again. She had a vestibular issue, which seems to be common in older dogs in her age range (11), and had to be on IV for a few days until she could stand on her own again...
