My last comments were on this one from Parts Express. While I could be misinterpreting it as well, the 1KHz ringing seems odd. And for everything else to drop 25dB in 3ms also seems odd. I have to wonder what they measured.
I'm the last person to ask, Jeff
My No 1 suspect is me. User error. I have abandoned waterfalls for the time being until I get some better idea of how to use them with OM.
In fact, I have now done about 6 Pro calibrations, mainly experimenting with mic positions around the MLP and I now have a superb result. It is the best I have ever heard my room sound. Detail is staggering, clarity is amazing, soundstaging is incredible - my room seems bigger than it is, the sound is entirely detached from the speakers, the bass is tight and controlled and stops and starts on a dime. I am currently a very happy bunny. So much so, I am ceasing doing measurements and calibrations for a while now and am just going to enjoy some movies for a while.
TOW, have you seen/heard MI, Ghost Protocol? The sound is fabulous - among the very best I have heard. And the movie is delightfully insane too, with a lovely streak of self-deprecating humour (qv the scene where Hunt receives his instructions which will, as always, self destruct in 5 seconds.... and many more similar scenes). Brad Bird has done himself proud - and I think the sound design is by Gary Lydstrom, who worked with Bird on The Incredibles and Ratatouille, two of my favourite movies for sound.
