AV Rant #439: Escher Apt
This week we thank Michael, Kyle, and Sushmit for their donations along with Scott (LINK), Ceasar, and Paul. Tom briefly mentions some news from Onkyo (LINK), OLED (LINK), HDR (LINK), and the Hoover Dam (LINK). Cliff has placement questions for his subwoofers (one that is in-floor) in his temporary home theater, Greg needs help aiming his surround speakers, and Michael wants to know about the new Denon receivers and how much they’ll cost in Canada (LINK). Quintin is interested GoldenEar speakers, Jack wants a DAC to make his Shure flagship SE846 headphones sound the best (LINK and LINK), and Josh wants our thoughts on the BBE Sonic Maximizer (LINK and LINK). Kyle wants to know if his plans to get his preferred speakers up front (LINK) and the cheapest possible option (LINK) for the surrounds are a good idea. Any other options? (LINK and LINK) Barney was wondering why someone would calibrate displays for 35 (rather than 30) foot lamberts for a display shootout, Jay noticed us on a list of AV podcasts to listen to (LINK), and Tim is having some HDMI switch issues (LINK). Mike wants to know what the “Loudness” setting does (LINK), treble and bass controls, recommendations for sub-$100 portable DACs with bass controls (LINK and LINK), music players for Android (LINK), and custom earmolds for in-ear monitors. Lastly, Sushmit wants to know how to get the best possible sound from Netflix, why his speakers don’t sound like Magnepans, and what subwoofer to buy. Thanks for listening.
