Bass.

In terms of performance there might not be that much real difference between it and a UM-18 (or an LMS) unless you use them far higher than most would take an 18, though the NS18 has lower...

For slightly more money they have a better closeout driver (Aura NS18 (http://www.parts-express.com/aurasound-ns18-992-4a-18-pro-subwoofer-driver-4-ohm--296-260)) right now. One that performs...

That sounds like a flaw to me. Labeling that misrepresents what a control does is annoying and misleading.

If the LP knob says 150Hz, it should cause an LP filter with a corner of 150Hz to be...

FWIW, FWIW, I've reluctantly listed my R-972 in the AVS classifieds. I had high hopes of continuing to use it to drive my desktop nearfield system – Trinnov is as spectacular in that role as it is in...

Depending on how many sources you have, the miniDSP DDRC-22D is a reasonably-priced option. If you don't want Dirac, their Open-DRC is IIRC the same hardware, and a bargain.

Indeed. Compare p. 75 of the 3050 manual with p. 69 of the 5100 manual.

The 5100 has enough DSP to apply loudness compensation to Atmos.

Guess that means for me (assuming no other interesting...

Markus, I agree that the best place for bass management is in the RC system. However, if that is not possible I'm thinking more and more that it's more appropriate to do it downstream of the RC than...

Yes. It occurred to me this morning that my Soundfield Audio Monitor 1's use the same box, so I measured the baffle inside the roundovers. It's just about 9" wide. Can you measure the width of the...

No. Now, it may have features beyond their top AVR, but in terms of audio signal path it is no different.



Many people imagine that, but reality does not agree with their imaginations.

Any word on loudness compensation with Atmos?



All that means is that it uses an AVR-LSI. That is to say, it's an ampless AVR and not a discrete pre-pro.

SEOS8 in .75 cube PE box?

Does anyone have a PE .75 cube box handy to see if an SEOS8 will fit inside the baffle roundovers?

Though a horizontal "mini-Malcolm" with 4 ND105's in the same box might be a fun little speaker,...

Perhaps not with the towers, but it worked pretty well with the Q15.

Interestingly, the Q95C had the beefiest Uni-Q of the whole line. I think it was the only one with a cast frame.

Are those kits designed for on-wall use? The sensitivity figures are quite high given the woofers' native sensitivity.

If so, cool. That's a niche too rarely explored, but very useful to get good...

That's purely a function of the lowered efficiency.

Besides, harmonic distortion at these levels is perceptually completely irrelevant.

Ah, is the 8207 the one with the LEDs instead of meters? Then I recant. Between those two the ATI for sure.
