    How to: A simpler way to measure and calibrate bass without REW and mic (Excel sheet included)

    So, we (Sigberg Audio) have speakers and subs with built-in manual EQ, which is great - but we have many customers who doesn't know how to and/or doesn't want to learn how to use REW and a microphone to measure their system. Even though most here on ASR might find that to be "easy" and "worth...

    What is the target frequency response/curve of a well treated room?

    Hi. I have seen many posts and articles where they show how to analyze and get flat response curves for speakers. However, none of them show how the frequency response of a well treated room looks like. Then I found this video: And from what I understand is that, flat frequency response studio...

    Is Nad c399 ok for subwoofer integration?

    Dear ASR community, I'm a new member. Most of the time I listen to music from Qobuz, with my integrated streaming amplifier Yamaha R-N803D, feeding a pair of Kef LS50 Meta and the active subwoofer Kef KC62. I've been thinking of upgrading to Nad c399, but I'm not fully convinced and I shall...

    Best nearfields under $5k all-in?

    Hi folks, My KEF LS50W Nocturnes crapped out ($2500, active) and I'm looking for a replacement. My request is that these are: - nearfields (sitting ~3ft away), - functional close to the wall (3-5 inches of separation). - active, or if passive, the price of a good amp can fit in the $5k I...

    Explain how to create an FIR file like I’m 5

    Hey all - so I’m totally new to PEQ/correction, etc. Done a bunch of reading and searching but still not exactly clear on this and how to generate the files. Here is what I’d like to do: I have an Eversolo A8 and I’d like to use its DSP to do room correction when I’m playing digital. I have...

    What is Dirac/DLBC doing to my sound ?

    Hello, I have been tweaking my new AVR (Integra DRX 8.4) setup and it has Dirac and DLBC options also. Firstly, I optimized my placement the best I could without any room correction and then I used room correction to see if gets any better. I would like to understand why Dirac is behaving the...

    RME adds Room EQ capability to TotalMix FX (UFX+, UFX II, UFX III and UCX II only)

    Just saw this yesterday on RME forums and thought it was exciting news: (full source) Preview: I can only hope this functionality finds its way to Babyface and ADI-2 DAC successors some day :) EDIT [2024-01-25]: Seems UCX II support was added as well; updated title accordingly.

    Working through OCA videos to create DSP filters

    This thread is mostly directed at @OCA to continue YouTube comment section discussions in a little easier format, but maybe it will be helpful to others. First system I'm working on is my office desktop setup, in a carpeted bedroom that's approximately 4.7m x 4.1m x 2.9m. I live just under...

    Raspberry Pi Room Correction 2023

    Hi all! I’m thinking about adding room correction to my setup and am wondering what’s the best way to go about it? My searches have led me to a number of things that seem like they might be out of date so I figured I would just ask. I currently have a NAS and a Logitech Music Server...

    Help needed on Gustard DAC setup without Receiver

    I currently have the XLR output of the Gustard DAC going to a Buckeye amp and it works well. The way I integrated the sub is with high level (speaker wires) since I don't have a receiver with LFE output and DSP room correction and speaker volume adjustments. I have the sub crossover dialed in...

    Active Speakers for New Listening Room

    I am moving soon to a new house and will have a new listening room that requires me to change to shorter speakers. The room is about 40m2 and has 3.2m high ceilings. There will be no acoustic treatment and I am looking to move from my current passive speaker setup (Focal Aria 948 and Onkyo...

    Nightmare room setup request for advice (audio only)

    Hi all - I'm looking for some advice on what appears to be an impossible situation - how to create a pretty good audio experience in a horrible room setup / layout. Diagram is below, but here's some background: - We're only worried about Audio... no AV requirements - There's a big room with...

    MiniDSP with a separate DAC and Preamp

    I'm trying to resolve a 45hz room mode and have been advised to check out MiniDSP. I know a little bit about MiniDSP but I don't fully understand how or where it would fit into my current system. I'm currently running a Chord Hugo TT2 with M-Scaler into a Benchmark LA4 preamp that feeds 2x...

    Is it possible to flatten out a non measurement microphone?

    I was wondering if one could flatten out a microphone by inverting the frequency response found in a graph. I would like to get a taste of the result without having to buy an expensive microphone for this... There's a Superlux microphone, which is pretty cheap, but requires an audio interface...

    Why don't the usual suspects (Topping, Sabaj, Smsl, Loxije etc) touch the dsp market?

    The question is serious, and is aimed at anyone with sensible hypotheses. In a market so saturated with dacs of all kinds, where a new photocopied dac comes out every month, all with the same functions, all with the same characteristics, how is it possible that none of the low-cost Chinese...

    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...
