AV Rant #338: Waveforms and Eye Rolls
Ever wonder what a waterfall plot was and how to read it? Wonder no longer. You and Liz will learn just what they are, how they work, and, most importantly, what they tell you. Still confused? Here are three videos to help you out. Tom previews his Samsung BD-F5900 Blu-ray player review. Is it worth $120? Time Warner and CBS are fighting. Who loses? You do, of course. Netflix adds the ability to make multiple profiles within one account. Let the rejoicing begin. Liz has a suggestion for their next improvement. Rob got a surprise from a listener. Is there a new format war on the horizon? Eh…probably not. Tom finally gets around to talking about the Leap Motion. Do you need one? Again, probably not. But it is super cool. This weeks recommendations are: Rob: www.audiocheck.net – a site where you can build your own test tones. Liz: not the lab-burger but to get yourself to Hamburg to have a miniature made of yourself. Tom: www.cross-spectrum.com – for under $100, you can get a calibrated microphone for measuring your home theater. Thanks for listening. Check out our Facebook Page.
