Yes, I'm also curious about that. I wonder how well edge-lit TVs will actually be able to display HDR content. They will not have the same dynamic range as e.g. FALD or OLED TVs anyway, and they will...

I guess it depends on how the hardware in the TV is designed. Possibly it could be achieved through a software update. After all the Samsung TVs are able to receive and display the HDR image if...

Ok, I see. So are you saying that upscaled high quality material also look noticeably better than on a 1080p Sony TV?

I was looking for sensible opinions based on fact. So far I've not found much of that. Only "all amps sound the same", which is ridiculous.

Right. Transistors, transformers, capacitors and resistors do not alter the sound any any way. Good luck with that.

That differs because there are different pre-amp designs. For example, pre-amps often amplify the signal too. But there are also even purely passive ones (basically just resistors). See e.g.

And that in turn is because those people who buy the more expensive pre-amps realize that they sound better.

Heck, you could design a pre-amp for $20. But not even low or mid range equipment use...

By ear. It would be interesting to measure it too of course, but measurement gear cannot capture all aspects of sound anyway.

Sure, but it's about comparable to many other sealed 12" subs. And...

Then how come a pre-amplifier affects the bass in a traditional Hifi pre/power-amplifier combination connected to normal speakers (i.e. no subwoofer)? Assuming your theory holds true, all that should...

Does the amplifier affect sound of an active subwoofer?

Hi,

If one is using an amplifier together with an active subwoofer, does the amplifier (e.g. AVR) affect the sound of the subwoofer?

I know an active subwoofer contains its own power amplifier,...

I've tried crossing them at 80 Hz too, but there was not much difference. If anything I think it sounds a bit better having them crossed at 60 Hz, which is why I chose that setting. The rear speakers...

I just wonder if there in general is any difference in video image quality between a HTPC and a Media Player (e.g. WD TV Live, Med8er, and similar)? This is under the assumption that at least...
