AV Rant #440: Smooth
This week we thank Rohan as our listener of the week! Thanks for your donation. Some news about Atmos and Game of Thrones (LINK), a nice roundup of all the new receivers coming (LINK), and Rob is for some reason really concerned about bubble wrap (LINK). We tackle Infinite Gary’s wall of questions about HDR and “vivid” modes, high resolution audio (LINK), speaker measurements in reviews (LINK), the importance of speaker quality versus room design, DTS 5.1 96/24 (LINK), the definition of “smooth”, and some info about Rives audio (LINK). Don let us know about an interesting Kickstarter project (LINK), while Barney is curious about our opinion of the state of receivers, the divide between the consumer and the high end receiver offerings, and some comments from Andrew Jones (LINK). Sushmit sent some feedback (LINK) but wonders about the performance of SVS cylinder subs versus their box subs, Jay wants an easy way to calculate standing waves in a room (LINK), and Andy was dismayed to learn how the mixing is done for movies (LINK). Nathan had a suggestion for Matt, Ken is interested in the Audiokinesis Swarm Subwoofer System (LINK) and has a question about bass in car audio, and Scott is shopping for a projector and a screen (LINK).
