AV Rant #455: Best Buy Lies
This week, we thank Brian and Steve for their donations, Ash for the new artwork, Scott for the mention on SVS’s site (LINK), and James for the DIY absorption panel covers (LINK and mention us for 10% off). In the news, JBL Synthesis and Trinnov 3D Audio have partnered up to create the JBL Syntheses SDP-75 (LINK), Auralex has a new app that kind of sucks (LINK), Dynaudio has new speakers (LINK), Rob found a laser-powered projector, Kaleidescape supports Vidity (LINK), and Logitech has new remotes (LINK and LINK). Ian wonders why movies sound so “big” in the theaters, Gabe has some thoughts on Rock Mountain Audio Fest (Out of some dude’s head, ELAC, and MQA), and Nelson wants us to check his Audyssey settings. Kris is looking to reassign some of the internal amps of his receiver and is wondering if he did okay with the placement of his third sub. Brian is thinking of upgrading his amp, needs a new sub, and wonders why people don’t care more about audio. Jonathan is concerned about upscaling, Tim is still having problems with lossless audio, and Pieter is renovating a house in Belgium and needs advice. Nathan is looking for a DAC with a remote (Emotiva XDA-2 gen2), Martin wants to know the difference between the Marantz AV7702 and 7702 Mk2, and Ronald wants a bigger TV but isn’t sure of the size.
