AV Rant #466: The Hiss Covers The Hum
This week, we thank Todd and Herb (from Cross-Spectrum Labs) for their donations, and Tony, Corey, and Kevin for their support. You are our listeners of the week! In the news, Cross-Spectrum labs is now selling the MiniDSP 2×4 units (LINK). This means you can get your calibrated mics and MiniDSPs in one place. Convenient!. Also, for custom installers, the Noise Control Conference is taking place in Providence, Rhode Island this coming June. If anyone would like to make a presentation themselves, they can submit a paper and pay an admission fee at the following link: http://noisecon16.inceusa.org/. Aperion Audio has new Verus II speakers on the way. They’ve re-engineered the tweeter (which is now patented), which also means a new crossover and higher power handling: https://www.aperionaudio.com/verus-2-grand-tower-xd. Karl points out that Apple might be developing a way to get high-rez music (LINK), Todd corrects Rob (LINK), and Nathan loves is DSPeaker Anit-Mode and recommends it (LINK). Infinite Gary wonders about Power Sound Audio and review terminology (LINK), Andrew wants enough sub to pressurize his WHOLE HOUSE, Dev is having problems with his Woo Audio WA2 tube headphone amp, and Tim is looking for help for his friend’s theater build. Rami’s build needs to be clean (in-wall/in-ceiling speakers only), has a bar taking up much of the back of the room, and has a fireplace up front. This is going to be a tough one. Terry’s Oppo BDP-95 is on the fritz and needs help, Bill doesn’t like the placement of his surrounds, and we tackle Sean’s big theater build. Thanks for listening. Check out our Facebook Page.
