AV Rant #248: Losing Your Phone

September 8th, 2011

Liz dropped the ball on the Soup to Nuts but Tom sort of covered with a listener question. Learn about how a sub and a room can interact to strange results. Netflix and Starz broke up. What it means for you and is it a bad thing? Apple can’t seem to keep track of their new phones. George Lucas can’t seem to leave well enough alone. Aperion Audio releases a Dipole/Bipole speaker (Verus line) and Tom dissects it. Look for a full report on Audioholics soon. Thanks for listening and don’t forget to vote for us at Podcast Alley! To see our (mostly) complete collection of show videos, click here. Download Tom’s FREE ebook Bob Moore: No Hero which is pretty much available everywhere. Friend Tom and Liz on Google+ to join in on one of our hangouts.

    Is it possible that the loosing an Apple i-phone prototype at a bar gig is intentionally contrived to create buzz / free publicity? Just saying…

    Thannks for spending so much time on my question, even if was just to cover up for a failure to prepare. I still think there’s something to the theory, though, that Inception was sound-mixed for the movie theaters and the home version simply overaccentuated the LFE effects. To your theory, Tom, that’s there some particular frequency being used in Inception which affects my sub/room combination in some way, well, it’s possible… but six or eight times in the movie? And not in any other movies? Seems less likely. Try the movie yourself with your much better equipment/room and let me know.

    Apologies, Rob. “LFE effects” is redundant.

    It’s a shame that dipole surround speakers are so misunderstood by most folks. I remember Dave F. over at Ascend Acoustics saying that he got enough requests for a dipole Ascend surround speaker that he felt he needed to post a response, but that he had too much sales data showing that dipole speakers just don’t sell very well to make it financially beneficial to actually make and sell one!

    It looks as though Aperion is sort of hedging its costs with their new di/bi-pole. It clearly follows more in line with the “Verus Forte” line with its coaxial driver arrangement and low price point. But it isn’t called the “Verus Forte” surround; it’s just the “Verus” surround, which makes me think that there’s no “Verus Grand” dipole in the works. I might be wrong, but I figure they would’ve just called it the “Verus Forte” surround if they were planning on releasing a higher priced dipole in the near future.
