    Linus Tech Tips is going to be testing audio gear? LTT Lab 1

    Imagine you are part of a small business, send your product for evaluation to "mighty" LTT only to see it fail due to improper usage and the reviewer tells everybody: "This product would have been bulls**t regardless of improper testing and it is overpriced anyway." Just because they were too...

    Fan-less silent PC

    There are also a bunch of fanless cases available for Intel NUC and AMD Mini PCs at Akasa. I got this one for an ASUS PN51 with Ryzen 7 5700u CPU. For better cooling performance I placed a 12cm pc case fan on top. It's powered by USB which makes it inaudible but helps keep CPU temperatures...

    Denon 2023 range X3900H/X4900H/X6800H announcement....!!??

    I don't the need for I had the "old" 3700x with - according to reviews - much better SINAD than the 3800x. For me there is no audible difference between the two devices. On the other hand, the added features, in particular several subwoofer outputs that can be controlled separately, the option...

    The wealth-building thread

    I was very "angry" about gas prices and gpu shortage in 2020 and bought options for BP and also nvidia stocks to make up for the inflating prices. Unfortunately the stocks had to be sold by the end of last year to help finance the purchase of a new apartment... I agree with @Blumlein 88 that...

    New mysterious Genelec monitors

    At 1-1,5m listening distance my toy speakers offer much more SPL than my ears can handle (room 4 x 3,6m, listening distance 1-1,5m). 8341 + W371 will be the optimum as was already stated. If you worry about acoustic problems in your room maybe get just one 8381 and sit in it.

    Denon AVR-X4800H AVR Review

    I guess it's the same with Marantz' HDAM which is also used as a marketing tool to differentiate from Denon's products. But the consesus seems to be that it doesn't improve audio quality at all (rather the opposite).

    Small size speakers has more clear sound than big size?.

    My LG XBoom360 does what its product name suggests... It sounds very boomy. Although it is advertised mainly with the 360 degree Sound to me it requires a lot of eq to get decent/acceptable sound throughout a room.

    Convince me to not buy 8351b.

    Problem is that the in-room bass will most likely have some dips due to SBIR. My recommendation would be a pair of 8341 and 7360. With subwoofers you can even out the frequency response much easier because of placement options. Also the maximum SPL will be higher than with a pair of 8351.

    2.1 setup with GIK Acoustics

    You are right, they don't make much of a difference. But on the sidewalls there are windows/door/paintings and placing panels on the ceiling would throw shadows. The back wall is already covered:

    Similar to "commas can save lives" over here: "Komm, wir essen, Opa." = "Come on grandpa, dinner is ready." "Komm, wir essen Opa." = "Come on, let's eat grandpa."
