AV Rant #394: Bass Case Scenario
Special thanks to Matthew, Luke, Stephen, E. Don, and Anand for their support of the podcast. Your contributions keep us going and we thank you! Tom and Rob both saw Gardians of the Galaxy and report. Tom even paid extra to experience Dobly Atmos though it forced him to experience 3D yet again. We have updates from Paul on our race car, Nathan reports on the f.lux software (LINK), and Miles is worried that his experience at a high-end audio show (LINK) has revealed his “tin” ear. John and Richard comment on Tom’s Harmony Ultimate Remote review from last week (LINK). Jonathan has an upgrade question, Nathan wonders about on-wall and in-wall speakers, and Scott is concerned that cars might be getting too quiet. Toby is loving his Denon X2000 we recommended (yeah! and LINK) but has a few questions about which sub to get, Audyssey MultEQ XT, and what to do with those unused amplifier channels. Cameron is looking for a DAC and we come up with two different suggestions (LINK to Rob’s). Jason is still confused about amplifier power, Travis wants a few more suggestions on sub/speaker setup, and Richard is having some issues with phase. Ashley has a followup soundcard issue, Paul ponders North American and European receiver manufacturers, and Steven is having some serious setup issues with his older Pioneer receiver. Another Stephan (from Australia) is looking for new speakers and asks if we think he should buy the SVS Ultra series speakers ear unheard (LINK). Thanks for listening.
