Re: Need Opinions on a Sunfire True Subwoofer MK II

Had one, liked it all right, but wound up selling it to a buddy and have a pair of HsuTN1220's instead (stereo subs, FTW!). I liked it better after *hard-mounting it to a 12x12x2" chunk of black granite (32lbs of deadweight) with 5/8" spiked feet. If unmounted, it moves around, and not just a little...

Re: HOLY SHIT IT'S BEEN DEAD HERE

If it's dead, it's dead for a reason. This is probably not going to be a popular opinion, but this is how I see it... This forum often reads like a Tea Party rally, and this sentiment goes unchallenged at best, making it appear to be the actual sentiments of the hivemind. Far as I can tell, most pe...

Arcadian Audio PNOE Horns

Sorry if this is a repost... I searched and nothing came up. As a composite worker and an audio dork, these make me horny. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_NVQujPOPx2c/S0YyIdFPZTI/AAAAAAAANS8/Wlfnrk1ddlk/s1600/arcad1.jpg http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/arcadianaudio/1.html http://itishifi.blogspot.com/2...

Re: Hear exactly whats missing from lossy formats

What's funny, is for all the shit I talk I still listen to MP3 streams as low as 128kbps as background music more often than I care to admit. The main benefit of doing this is not the listening itself however, just that a great deal of internet radio stations I listen to and like are only available ...

Re: Hear exactly whats missing from lossy formats

What do you guys consider a "lossy" format? Throw me any and all examples, if you will. A lossy format is any format that winds up with less information than it started with before the compression. That soundcloud link from my last post demonstrates how much information is lost at the different com...

Re: Hear exactly whats missing from lossy formats

Link works, but it's to the page that has a podcast of the interview, which can be listened to by clicking 'listen' at the top left of the option column... Here's an experiment someone did using this technique. It's interesting to hear how much more is removed with each downgrade in compression: htt...

Hear exactly whats missing from lossy formats

This is from NPR's Science Friday. http://www.sciencefriday.com/program/archives/201202106 Basically, you can use Audacity to load the same track in two formats, and then to invert the phase of your lossy file. Then, when you play back both tracks simultaneously, the wave forms collapse except where...

Re: Adding a C-1 with a A/V receiver and Amp

Are you using the Pioneer/C-1/M1.0 as pure stereo(?) ...or as the mains in an HT? Anyone have any idea where i should set the volume level on the C-1. I dont want to over load the inputs on my Pioneer As I read your post and understand the question, that is entirely up to you, which is completely su...

Re: 55 minute long interview with Bob Carver

That was not only enjoyable, but also informative. It's the clearest SH explanation I've heard so far, as well as the bit on global feedback towards the end.
