    Re: Equalizers

    EQ's in the 70's were basically money makers, a fad, everyone had the big smily face on them. Most introduced noise. And, even better if it had lights.

    In order for an EQ to even be effective...

    Re: vandersteen ct treo + Rotel

    Welcome to AS.

    I am not enthusiastic about Rotel, not a brand I'd personally use, subjective my opinion. I just do not enjoy their house sound. I actually prefer their Class D amps over the A/B....

    I just wanted to add this link which is better explanation than I can give.

  9. Re: Zu Omen Def Mk II MiniDSP experiment....

    What type treatments? Panels are not typically full frequency, thinner will reduce highs and move down frequency with thickness. That's why most bass traps are thick.

    I would expect a noticeable difference from the items you describe, but, how noticeable I'm not sure. New part, like caps can require some break in time.

    Re: Best Tidal tracks/albums

    Patricia Barber has two new songs on Tidal in MQA 352k. I don't get the full unfold but would love to hear these in full 352k to satisfy curiosity. They are single tracks from a upcoming album.
  12. Re: Hardware for Adjusting the Center Image in Stereo

    I should mention if using a home theater receiver/processor you do not need several channels of speakers or amplification. You tell the unit what you have in the set up menu, you can use what is...
  13. Re: Hardware for Adjusting the Center Image in Stereo

    Not to my knowledge. Back in the 90's when surround sound began to dominate the mainstream things like EQ and other similar faded away. Most A/V receivers had built-in EQ that was much better end...

    Re: New Amp on the Way

    I sold the 8, I don't know if it didn't have good synergy withmy Levinson pre or a character of the amp and I was more sensitive to it. Coda doesn't allow much audition time so use it wisely if you...

    Re: Ceiling Height and Speaker Sound

    You can try but EQ isn't going to correct an imbalanced placemen in the room.

    The placement is wrong and wiring should not have been ran that way. You can do your best and live with the result...

    Re: X150.8 front meter dancing around…

    Still if the Maggies didn't stress the 150.8 the Zu shouldn't even if a bit less than rated efficiency. Zu is driven by SET owners so shouldn't be an issue for your amp

    I wonder if the Omen maybe...

    Re: X150.8 front meter dancing around…

    Even leaving Class A wih the Zu you have to be much louder than 84dB unless your listening room is an auditorium. With that being said some Zu are 16 ohms and if that's your case it will limit the...

    Re: Top Quality Recordings

    I find quite a bit of the older Jazz recorded very well and typically sounding more as live, not so much getting messed up in the engineering. I don't go into the 40's or much mono though.

    Blades I've heard a few times but one of those models I've yet to hear at their best.

    Re: Using MA5300 integrated amp as preamp

    Only the one you posted in post #1 of your initial thread on the same subject.

    The 5300 has a preamp section and it would be fine to use but seems it lacks the connections you need for sub etc. ...
