AV Rant #448: Leather Curtains
This week, we thank Jefferson for mentioning to Elite Screens that he bought because of us, Michael for his donation, and Jason for the recipe. Thanks guys! If you haven’t before, this week you get to meet Austen, our producer. Everyone say, “Hi Austen!” In the news, Epson has new projectors (LINK), LG has new OLED displays (LINK), as does Hisense (LINK), and Vidity and UltraHD Blu-ray offer streaming (LINK and LINK). Nelson is wondering if a high-end processor with top end Audyssey will sound the same as a mid-line receiver with top end Audyssey, Greg found headphones that claim to sound better than CD (LINK), and Justin wants to know if we have any TV shows we recommend for good sound, is looking to upgrade his speakers, wants to know what the LPF knob setting on his subs should be, is looking for new headphones, and wants a standalone DAC with Dolby Headphone (LINK). Nick wants to share his experience with Audyssey MultEQ XT (LINK), Allen is looking for a 7.1 system for his friend with wireless surrounds (LINK, LINK, LINK, LINK, LINK, and LINK), and Bruno is looking for a display but is confused by the terminology (LINK). Calvin is interested in a Baffle Wall and wants to know our opinion (LINK and LINK), Jason has a large, open room and is worried that his receiver won’t have enough power, and Jonathan updates us on his theater build. Barney is confused by a video from Panamorph (LINK), Timothy is having HDMI syncing issues, and Karl has additional questions about his ongoing subwoofer upgrade. Thanks for listening.
