AV Rant #399: Drugs, Subs, and Screens
Tom is back and he’s determined to keep the podcast under two hours…and he DOES! Thanks to E. Don and Robert for being our listeners of the week by supporting our podcast. Your donations keep us going. We have a few announcements about upcoming interviews so get your questions in now. Eliezer enjoyed Lee, Jonathan remembers DAK, and Cameron is tests out slap echoes (time to look into room treatments). Gaylen updates us on his Onkyo replacement saga, Jared has some information on B&W headphones (reviews HERE and HERE), and Tom gets the skinny on setting 0dB before running Audyssey. Has Michael found the most decoupled speaker (LINK)? Alan found our talk of subs last week interesting and wants to take a look at the pdf’s that Rob mentioned last week (links below). Jared wants some advice on dipole speakers and Audyssey, Mark is looking for advice for his Dad with surround sound speakers and subs, and Barney wants to know how Trinnov and Dolby Atmos will work together. Jay switched his sub cable and now has a thump, Jonathan wants to tailgate with good sound, and Gary wants to know what screen we’d pick. Michael is looking for help on how to read subwoofer specs, Bruno wants to know how to plan his home theater, Alan wants to know if mixing speakers with different sensitivities could cause damage, and Bill is building a home theater and wants to know if he should move a wall.
