If I were in your position, I'd ask the builder to apply the drywall and gyp board to the underside of the overhead floor deck, per the detail Jeff linked from soundproofingcompany.com. This is...

"I did consider the HTPC route..."

I tried HTPC back in 2000. It sucked.

Then I built a new machine a few years back. Much better but still more hassle than it was worth. All I used...

That's the way I see a UHD projector working too. I am trying to remove complexity, therefore would rather not have a lens in my system. I may be compromising some picture quality but I'm willing...

I've done a bit of fiddling with great success.

The Nvidia control panel has a setting for output resolution that I set for 1920 x 820 on the HDMI output that feeds the projector. DVI goes to the...

Thanks a lot for the feedback. I'm okay with loss of resolution on 16:9. I'll do some experimentation when I can and post results (and questions) here.

Anyone doing the "shrink" method with HTPC scaling?

I've been doing CIH with the zoom method for a few years now. My JVC RS2u works well, but I have to zoom manually (I have the lens centered on the screen vertically so I don't have to shift). It's...

Farting does not create new air. It just moves air from a very confined space to a somewhat less confined space. So if the dog "lets one" that's three cubic inches of air, his body volume decreases...

Why is this urgent? Can you write a comprehensible sentence? How about a paragraph?

I didn't read your questions.

25db of boost at 30hz takes some serious power (refer to previously posted EQ graph). My shop is ~11,000 ft^3. And it's really freaking loud when I clip the amp.

I've got 901's in my work shop. 120 watt per channel rotel amp is not enough power for them.

I've got two RB-991's (and an RB-993 three channel version). Overall I am very happy with them. They never struggle with listening volume I hit (loud!).

They run hot. And the RCA-XLR switches...

Either amp would serve you nicely. Those aren't transistors, they're transformers. Don't sweat the details though. That's a good deal on the Outlaw 2200's. And you can always add more when you're...

Maybe EMO will learn how to build processors with all the experience they're getting on the XMC-1 (UMC-1, UMC-200, and all the aborted "XMC-1" versions).

I don't intend this comment to bash EMO. ...

Sit tight for Dirac and REW integration on the XMC-1. That gives you two good options, ass-u-me(ing) Emotiva ever gets it done.

What's AR? Is that aspect ratio? Isn't AR usually followed by "-15"?

Mods, please delete anything that contains "Andrew" or "Robinson" from this "technical" thread.
