I'm not sure about that. miniDSP has designed their system to work with their mic only, yet the umik-1 mic works wonderfully with REW. In fact, it's the mic of choice for many people (myself...

I'll try to take a look at it this weekend, but I believe we'll also require an update on the XMC-1 side in order to import and export filters. Right now I can backup or restore all XMC-1 settings...

I'll let other, smarter guys help you with evaluating the measurements. I'll just point out that the two graphs that say "No Smooting" in the title are indeed smoothed.

Just a reminder of the trick that worked well for me. Mu your sub in your seat, with the woofer at ear level. For my sub, I had to flip it so the woofer was pointing up the ceiling. Then move your...

I'll just point out that if you decide to purchase the XMC-1, do your self a favor and join the e-club fof $50. It'll gain you a 10% discount on XMC-1, for a net savings of $150. I'm assuming that...

It's been a while since I watched the movie but wasn't the biologist stoned out of his mind at the time? Or was that just the geologist?

Most of the negativity is from non-owners. Those of us with the XMC-1 are quite happy with it, and not just because we're lemmings as some might suggest. The continued delay around Dirac is getting...

He hasn't posted in 4 days. That's pretty uncommon for him. Usually he's busy providing tech support for JRiver. He's been one of the most prolific and helpful members on the site for a long time....

When you're doing sub only, is the sweep over HDMI channel 4, or HDMI channel 3? If you're doing it over 4, I would expect it to be 10dB hotter, as the LFE channel is +10dB.

Have you tried restarting your computer (rather than just REW)? I've had a restart resolve some ASIO weirdness.

That's probably why why he added the caveat "if". It's sensible to wait until Emotiva delivers a product that meets his needs.

I was thinking the same thing.



Go back and take a look at pages 393 and 394. There was quite a bit of discussion around using HolmImpulse to try to time align speakers. It was a bit over...

That's because there's so little output below 30Hz. If he dropped his volume 10-15 dB on the red graph, he'd see a similar decay from 30Hz down.

Oppo isn't using Dirac Live. They are using Dirac HD Sound in their mobile phones. As far as I know, the mobile phones and blu ray players are completely independent business units.

Lol...listening to the podcast right now. Talking about Dirac, Dan just said, "Don't ask me for a date because I'll give you one, and then I'll just miss it." Maybe the guy is finally learning.

The next XMC-1 firmware update will include full range pink noise to allow RTA measurement. Rather than waiting on Dirac, I guess Emotiva is going to release the new firmware at the end of this week.

A lot of movies are filtered below 30Hz. That said, that's A LOT of bass to give up. On the other hand, I don't see how it's possible that you could not notice a 20Hz wide, 20dB gash in your...
