AV Rant #433: Soundproofing
This week Tom completes his review of the BenQ treVolo portable electrostatic bluetooth speaker. We thank Shannon and Rob W. for their donations and James and Shannon for their support. We cover some news from Onkyo and Hauppauge. James likes inwall speakers from SnapAV (LINK), Nelson’s dad got a 90″ Sharp and he wanted to share (LINK), and Infinite Gary has questions about Betamax. Joshua has a mirror issue (LINK), Kris “I Don’t Live in a McMansion” got his new SVS subs and now has some Audyssey questions, and Alan has some suggestions for cable management (LINK) along with a question about backer boxes for in-wall speakers (LINK). Ashley has some video calibration questions, Dave is looking for a display (LINK) and Blu-ray player (LINK) for his non-Audiophile friends, and Don is confused by SVS’s Merlin advice. Rob M. wants to know if he should go HDMI or HDbaseT for his long run, Scott shares some knowledge about home theater construction costs, and Efrain called Trinnov. Jonathan sent us a link to an article from a person that REALLY hated Age of Ultron (LINK), Brian got a defective unit from Accessories4less and reports, and Alan and Rob W. tell us how they remodeled their basement and made the coolest absorption panels ever (respectively). Look for individual posts about their tips soon. Thanks for listening. Check out our Facebook Page. Click here for our YouTube channel where you can see the recordings of our show videos.
