    Room Correction, Dirac and devices that can implement it?

    I have been contemplating trying room acoustics correction in my system for quite some time and wondered what would be the 'best way' for me to add it to my quite generic system? Dirac seems to be quite prevalent in their field, perhaps because of their marketing in the field of domestic HiFi...

    TV between speakers

    I haven't found any useful threads on this topic, so I'll start one now. All those die-hard audiophiles always claim that having a TV between your speakers can ruin the center image and soundstage. How much truth is to that? How large will be the difference between having a large TV (or any...

    Best hifi buy vs top of the charts

    Thought I'd do a thread after the comments on the smsl dac that reminded me of a discussion after the minidsp flex. To be specific one on a chart about av interfaces, featuring both AVRs, dsp dacs and the likes of the Nad M33. I remember thinking: that's odd to place the minidsp flex on a chart...

    Networked stereo receiver with HDMI, room correction and bass management - does it exist?!

    Hi there. Hoping for some help to upgrade our lounge system. I am seeking the best possible sound (subjective, of course) for music and TV/film in a 2.1 system on a budget of £1k or under. I already have a BK XXLS400 sub so this is for the receiver and speakers. I'm not interested in surround...

    Longshot, but I need help, I'm an idiot and broke my MiniDSP with Dirac Live.

    Since you guys are scientists and love audio I'm posting here in the small chance that someone might be able to help. Long story short I tripped on my USB cable connected to my MiniDSP DDRC 24 with dirac live which now has a better algorithm that creates custom target curves instead of giving...

    Best Room EQ settings for a desk setup?

    Hey, I just tried to correct my LS50 using REW and my Behringer ECM-8000 to get a flatter response. I set the volume to roughly 75dB using the pink noise generator. I only corrected peaks which are mainly caused by room modes in my setup. I used the following settings for the filter...

    miniDSP Help

    I am looking for some help/advice with a hypothetical path that I may take with my setup in the future. First I will layout my current system: Marantz NA6006 > Marantz PM KI RUBY > Focal Chora 826. Everything I am about to say is hypothetical as it is not all financially possible at once, but...

    Accurate speaker in-room response. Which UMIK1 orientation is better, horizontal 0º or vertical 90º? (Question)

    Although I've been using Umik1 for years, at first I always seem to have it right, but then the results end up driving me crazy with the same doubt: What combination of microphone positioning and calibration file gives us the real response our ears perceive at the listening point above the...

    KEF LS50 and Sub Optimization?

    I have been experimenting with my LS50 and Sub KEF Q400 for several years, and still cannot find the optimal sweet spot for crossover and sub volume. The issue is that I find a good setting based on one song and album (let's say Diana Krall - Wonderful) but later when I listen to another album...

    REW and RME: How to Generate EQ tailored for RME ADI-2 using REW?

    My biggest problem is the room so I'll post this thread here.

    Good evening all from Ireland. I'm looking for some advice please on a few issues and I understand totally if you give up after a few lines as I ramble but despite being a wannabe audiophile (taking the scientific approach) I'm very much a noob. Given that my biggest problem right now is the...

    Impact of door/window position on in-room response

    For a while now I've been noticing that I can get pretty different LF in-room response depending on current room layout and whether doors/windows are open or closed. Anyway, a couple of days ago I decided to test a few variants to see what is the impact exactly on both my systems. First the...

    A collection of tracks spectrum

    Now that I have achieved a quiver of 3 sets of DRC filters that satisfies me both emotionally and intellectually#, I listen to music but plugged mu Umik in REW, checking for SPL and eventual anomalies. I think interesting to share the RTA measurements obtained with "Average forever" settings...

    General EQ advice

    Hey all, longtime reader and first time poster. The objective nature of this forum is refreshing, to say the least. It's also turned me on to the idea of EQ'ing my nearfield monitors and headphones. For now, I haven't attempted to measure or correct room gain or reflections at all. Using...

    Would You Rather: Soundstage+Phantom Center OR More Accurate Frequency Response?

    Moved studio monitors from corners to ~30% the length of the side walls closer. They are near the sidewalls, per Genelec recommending keeping them closer, or if there is space making sure they are more than 1.1 meters from the wall. this follows the first rule for the side walls, and the second...
