My God, Keith, give it a rest.... ;)
LOL! Sorry, Jerry. It's been a bit quiet in here for a few days (unlike in my HT next week, once my two Seaton Submersive F2s have been installed) and I couldn't resist mentioning that I'll soon be the proud owner of two Seaton Submersive F2s .....
Now my room is treated, I'm expecting XT32/Pro will give me an even better result - the HT actually sounds pretty good ATM with Audyssey turned OFF (for the first time ever, just as an experiment and because, although I obviously need to rerun Audyssey after installing the traps, I don't want to do it now and then do it all over again when my two Seaton Submersive F2s are installed next week.
BTW, Jerry, what was it you wanted me to give a rest to?
I posted in the thread you link to, but as it has just 17 posts, most of them subjective claptrap from the thread starter, I'll repost here what I said there:
"The really, really scary thing is that someone with "40 years experience in studios all over the world" seems to know so little and understand even less. He hasn't even mentioned room treatments as the first line of approach in EQ-ing a room, or even the importance of the room itself. The thought of using electronic EQ makes him "cringe", so, in the absence of room treatments, he presumably just prefers the massive room-induced distortions, huge peaks and nulls, uncontrolled flutter echo, comb filtering distortion and so on and on. His views are just subjective and come down to being no more than an opinion."
When someone tells you you need to change your interconnects before getting your room right, then you know it's time to turn the page... ;)
Yes, that is a valid way to go for sure. Having been in the advertising business all my life, I have very, very rarely used any form of 'knocking copy' as it is usually counterproductive. Of course, true 'comparison advertising' is OK because that is exactly what consumers do when considering what to buy. So, for me, it would be acceptable for example to say "Audyssey uses 10,000 control points to create its filters whereas [Brand X] uses only 30, so you can be sure Audyssey gives a more sophisticated result". What would not be acceptable is to describe Audyssey the way the thread starter on the Disney WOW thread has done. Frankly it makes him look foolish and cheapens the value of his own product.
I took organic to mean he covers everything with BS :) I like your candles and incense idea better LOL.
I can recommend the OmniMic. Very nice and very easy to use. Even I got the hang of it after a while! You'll have no problems at all with it Theresa.
Good idea to invest in some form of measuring - tells you so much about what is really going on, so easily. What is it that you find 'disagreeable' wrt to Audyssey and music? People used to find XT could have an undesirable effect on their HF, but AFAIK this has been resolved with XT32.
Good point. I am going mad. :) He's not saying he can't tell the difference is he - he's saying he can and he doesn't like it! I'll amend my post - the fewer people who know I am going mad, the better ;)
Hahaha. Yes, the knowledge that my F2s are sitting less than 90 miles away - and have been since last Thursday - but I cannot get my hands on them, is driving me nuts. All normal thought processes have been suspended.
:) You: "That sounds like s**t."
Salesman: "Well, it's a Bose."
You: "Yeah, that's what I said....."
