Thanks Fosi Audio! Looks like a great product that's well executed.
It may be just my computer, but FYI I clicked on the Fosi Audio link above and my MalwareBytes antivirus app gave me a compromised site message.
That's my basic setup also. EQ APO and Peace works really well for me. Load EQ APO first. Then Peace. Using Peace makes adjusting EQ much easier, in my opinion.
Without a Mic you are flying blind. You can use Peace to edit the frequency response of your speakers, but it will be very hard to get a good frequency response..
Here is a link to a good Mic that many of us use:
Here is a link to the EAPO documentation:
I highly recommend the Peace interface for EAPO. In my experience it's much more user friendly:
Costco has a Denon receiver for $499 that has AM/FM and a sub out. This receiver has not been tested here, but the Denon equipment that has been tested has generally tested pretty well.
It looks like you could improve your sound quality with some simple adjustments to your speaker locations. If you have the KG4s, I would definitely get some short stands to lift the speakers off the floor. Here is good explanation of different location approaches...
It's difficult to make a recommendation without budget numbers, so do you have a budget range in mind?
Also, here is a great list of speaker recommendations at different price levels that @sweetchaos compiled...
Here is an excellent list of EQ options compiled by @Doodski for different operating systems. They range from free to expensive.
For the best sound it's really important to have the speakers equidistant from your ears (without any obstruction). Floor stands could do that for you if you center the monitors on your desk.
I have Monolith stands that are very heavy and well made. That would be my recommendation.
Here is a link to a calculator to see how loud the Elac speakers would play with 50 watts. At a 10 foot distance the SPL would be 90 dB which is quite loud.
Well, what other information would you like Amir to include in all of his speaker reviews? Size of the tweeters, overall size of the speakers, colors available, material used for the woofers and tweeters, weight, etc......
If you plan to mix with the speakers, I think the Kali LP6 v2 would be a better choice.
Conclusions from Amir
The Kali LP-6 despite its ridiculously low price produced excellent performance. Had...
I think the point is that the curtains do not have enough mass to alter the low frequencies. So the low frequency response should be about the same with open or closed drapes.
EDIT: Can we agree on that?
