    Revel Performa 3 vs ML Electromotion ESL - comparative measurements

    I ran recently on the russian HiFi site Stereo.ru where I found tests of these 2 speakers. As each of them is a kind of king of it's domain (monopole and dipole) it makes sense to imagine "battle of the titans" to see how they would fare versus each other. So, which speaker won this monopole vs...

    How to measure phase properly at home using REW?

    When trying to do room EQ measurements with REW you will find a lot of information on the Net. You have option to do RTA measurement with pink noise using moving microphone method. Another option is to make several sweeps at and around your LP and use "Average the response" feature under All SPL...

    Room EQ, do's and dont's

    I kindly ask members to share their knowledge and experiences with manual room EQ. I'm in no way expert with this, here's how I do it.. I design my filters with rePhase based on measurements done with REW with calibrated mic. In the 20Hz-600Hz region I make RTA measurements at the area around...

    Speakers distortion

    I believe it is safe to say that THD and IMD are no longer an issue with well designed DACs and amps. Thank God these days you no longer need to sell your kidney to buy such products as was the situation before. But how it is with speakers? How does THD and IMD of modern speakers, say Revel...

    How to make room EQ with Volumio

    Current Volumio users may find this news exciting as recently BruteFIR convolution engine has been ported to Volumio platform. At the very beginning I must stress a fact that although BruteFIR is available at all Volumio platforms I do NOT recccomend using it with Raspberry PI (including newest...

    Why or why not use balanced connections

    AES3 and SPDIF share the same low level serial protocol, but while SPDIF was designed for consumer market AES3 was meant to be used in professional envrionment. SPDIF covers max distance of 10m and is thus much cheaper than AES3, which covers max distance of 100m to 1000m, depending on the...

    How to make Topping D10 act as a preamp

    Seeing how well D10 performed on @amirm measurements, especially considering its very modest pricing, probably the same idea crossed minds of many of us: if only this little hero has volume control so it can be hooked directly to the amplifier! It would be even better if the volume could be...

    Loudness compression, loudness wars.. What exactly it is and why is it happening?

    It would be very nice if someone of you takes a little time and explain this loudness thing to the rest of us that don't really know what it refers to. :)

    My review of Topping D10

    Today I received my D10. On this lousy pic you can see it attached to the Raspberry Pi 3 B+. As you can see it is still "work in progress" as I'm still waiting for the case to arrive. :) But ok, as everything is fully functional I decided to make a short write up to describe my impressions so...
