Anyway this was my last EQed response run on REW. With room treatments.. Though I don't remember if I had my LR mains set to large with subs or small with subs when I did this measurement.

rhed the graph looks good but at the very least you should have it in 10dB increments but preferably 5dB not 20dB and I would suggest using 1/12th smoothing too.

+1

5db increments and 1/12 smoothing is pretty standard and gives a better indication of what is going on.

Here is a 0-300 sweep with 20db increments and 1/6th smoothing - almost perfectly flat



Same graph with 5 db increments and 1/12 smoothing



Same with 5db increments and no smoothing.

Yep, I love the look too!! I'm just under 6'1" so yeah, pretty much same exact height as me too. They look a lot better without the grills too.

Sounds like a good plan Dave, I know you have had your eye on the Emotiva.

Thanks.. Yea.. I dug this out here in my gallery. I'm gonna change it when I get back from my vacation. See how it looks with 5 db increments. I know I save every measurement done with REW on my LT. I'm not gonna do anymore REW measurements again till I add the two OS Pro's I have planned for early 2015. I've read reviews about the OS Pro's over and over how beastly these would bring out the midbass more. This should be a interesting addition. Though I will have to sacrifice one of my dedicated line for it. It's probably the one for my avr.

This is good information to know because when I first used my Omnimic, I ran a FR with 1/6 smoothing and it looked pretty good as you posted above. I thought, wow, my room is pretty good I don't have must tweaking to do. Then I ran it again with no smoothing and it looked like snaggle toothed witch...just like you posted above and I thought...dagnabit...my room sucks and I have lots of work to do to get it smoother I've never run 1/12 smoothing but I'd imagine it will be between 1/6 and none but the question is....


Wouldn't no smoothing be the best in terms of "truly" seeing what's going on in your room instead of 1/12?

Probably.

I think 1/12th is how we would hear it.

Then there is the XMC-1 but I'd like to get Atmos at some point...

So I'm going to try to wait patiently for a future avr (possibly combined with a future minidsp) that has both Dirac and Atmos.
I wonder if Emotiva have plans for Atmos in their pre pros.

They said with the RMC-1 (top of the line model) it "should" have every bell and whistle possible. Emotiva never keeps their word, so it's likely 3 years away.

Blasting brown notes for 10 years and counting!

The 3 years thing is just making fun of Emotiva and how they can NEVER keep a date for releasing something. I don't have any idea when it would actually be out lol. I'd bet at least a year or 2 though

Alright - crappy pics attached. I think I'll need to break out the good camera, since the iPhone ain't cutting it....

140" screen is up now....loving it. Still need to hook up the buttkickers, but when playing demo tracks it is already pretty visceral....things move. Everythings move!

Due to the soundproof-ish nature of my HT, my wife has resorted to texting me, and during some demo time, her last one said "cabinets are shaking...too loud."

I remember when you found that ant eater... Did you guys end up keeping him? I dug up the video you took of the little guy, seemed pretty friendly to say the least.
