    Bookshelf monitors buying guide summer 2024

    Linking it to point out you didn't like it(which I agree, publications like this suck) just drives them traffic, of course.

    Is Dolby Atmos the Future of Music or a Complicated Fad?

    Yes, but head tracking is required for it to be really convincing. There's a huge difference between the experiences there. And it isn't hard to build head tracking into active headphones. Yep it's pretty bad right now. Doesn't mean it always will be. It would be strange to wait until there's...

    Is Dolby Atmos the Future of Music or a Complicated Fad?

    You can emulate any surround speaker experience binaurally on headphones with head tracking and the right processing. Smyth realiser and bacch among others have already proven that this works very convincingly. Apple headphones do this as well it's just not nearly as good. But it's just a...

    Is Dolby Atmos the Future of Music or a Complicated Fad?

    It's not complex to setup Atmos. All you need are headphones, and the right hardware/software. So I dunno why bad articles keep citing that. The actual point of Atmos is not today's speaker setups, it's for future full spatial immersion on headphones. Mixes stick around for decades.

    Genelec 8351B Teardown (2nd Disassembled)

    So it has a breakup mode at 6K, but then using a steep crossover which would minimize the effect of that on frequencies outside of the driver's band is somehow also bad because of the not-fully understood-audibility of the resulting change to the *step response*??? :rolleyes::facepalm:

    Genelec 8351B Teardown (2nd Disassembled)

    There are a lot of differences between these speakers other than the tweeter, like SO MANY differences. The Salon 2s are not coaxial and they have much wider dispersion for starters. Also, one person's sighted comparison in non-ideal conditions doesn't even consistently translate to any other...

    Genelec 8351B Teardown (2nd Disassembled)

    None of that implies there would be any audible improvement.. There really isn't any evidence that the 8351/8361 tweeter has any kind of significantly audible issues. I personally think Be tweeters are more about bling and "uniqueness" than the material properties. They don't seem to make much...

    KEF Blade 2 Meta review by Erin's Audio Corner

    Ah what I meant to say is that there's little advantage to wider directivity in mch, not that directivity is irrelevant either way. I agree with you, I think there may be some advantage to narrower directivity for that reason.

    KEF Blade 2 Meta review by Erin's Audio Corner

    I've always figured that wide directivity Increases envelopment in a stereo situation because you're just throwing more energy into the room to form reflections. And it's pretty well established that stereo listeners like speakers that increase envelopment because stereo is so deprived of it in...

    KEF Blade 2 Meta review by Erin's Audio Corner

    What he actually said(in reply to you on YouTube), for those who care about subjective opinions: Personally, knowing the reliability of my own auditory memory and just how often I've been surprised when actually doing a proper A/B test with sub-1s switches, I will seriously never understand...

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    DBA requires a minimum of 8 subwoofers so no. But it's pretty easy to manually calculate the delays and levels for DBA so you only need a miniDSP or similar to implement it. And at that point you could have any room correction system treat it as a single subwoofer. Dirac ART is (sort of) a more...

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    Do you understand what multisub is? It's not having more than one subwoofer in general. It's having multiple subs that play the same signal, not different signals. Like I said, GLM can do more than 1 sub but it will not optimize them to play together. It behaves a bit like Dirac with no DLBC or...

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    Sure, I know what the manual says. You can(obviously) use more than one subwoofer *in general*. But GLM doesn't do real multi-sub, by which I mean, setting delay, gain, and EQ filters separately and *differently* for each sub to achieve smooth bass overall. That is what MSO & Dirac DLBC do...

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    Yes, that's all true. I do like GLM a lot, and I use it with my system, it's just missing that one particular feature is all. 1. Certainly, yes. Cardioid bass also reduces sidewall interactions. 2. They don't have to be stacked but because the W371 can play as high as 200-300hz depending on...

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    GLM can't do any real form of multisub bass management which is a serious limitation for a domestic system, especially at the price. A nonGLM multisub system like miniDSP+MSO or Dirac ART can significantly outperform GLM.

    Genelec 8351B Review (Studio Monitor)

    It's because Tannoys all measure poorly and don't seem to have improved much since they invented them, they certainly haven't solved the problems that Kef has let alone Genelec.

    FR variation around MLP, SPL in perspective

    Single point measurements are not very useful or representative of what we hear in the first place, except for low frequencies where the change over distance is less. That's why you need to average bunch of measurements together to properly configure room correction or use MMM. You can...

    Is the amplifier of SVS subs unreliable?

    This is a question that has no real answer, because no one knows what people have subjected their subwoofers to and no one outside SVS has large scale data either. I have an SVS SB12 NSD from 2008 that still works about as well as it did 16 years ago. I'm not aware of any evidence that would...

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    If you played content that didn't go below 100hz and didn't get anywhere near SPL limits, I'm quite confident that you would hear variation in room effects long before you'd hear any fundamental difference between the various sizes of Ones, even if they were placed side by side. The bass...

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    Yes, there is some variance. It is noticeable but it doesn't ruin things unless the volume is set really high and I'm usually at 75dB average for tv/film. The loss is less than 6dB per doubled distance indoors because of reflections. The 6dB and 3dB figures assume an anechoic environment...
