    Cheap DSP recommendation for bass management.

    Hi everyone, I'm looking for a small low-cost DSP (less than 200 euros) to only manage the equalization of two or three subwoofers. I saw the t.racks dsp 4x4 mini pro. Seems like he can do the job with dignity. Has anyone tried it? Are there any differences in sound quality between the non-pro...

    Room gain, sealed vs ported

    I might be moving my system into a pretty small room and I’m running dual SVS SB3000’s. Doing some research it looks like I’ll get a huge amount of room gain below 35hz… longest wall 15’, 126 ft.² and about 1050 ft.³.

    KEF "ultra thin" speakers

    Hello. Has anyone measured or tried in reality the "ultra thin" speakers from KEF? For our bedroom with limited space this seems like a good option cosmetically. But sound wise, I do not want it to be in the "soundbar" territory. We love our music and would love to have almost LS50 grade...

    I've Been Deceived!

    Honestly, just venting a bit. I figured, that at the least, a bunch of audiophiles would be able to commiserate.
