  1. Re: In room, real-world measurements of my Harbeth 30.2s

    Nah, just a bit bored at home and wanted to tweak the settings on the REL sub to be optimal for the Beths. The sub was originally set up using a DOE for the big Dyns and I just wanted to tweak its...
  2. In room, real-world measurements of my Harbeth 30.2s

    Got my new Dayton NIST-traceable calibration USB mic today from MiniDSP today. Only $89. Measurements are now easier as I donít need to use the M-Audio mic preamp anymore, just plug in to a USB port...

    Re: Signal ground connection question

    Ah, okay.

    Per your photos, you can connect a wire from the ground shell of an unused input jack on your other components to the Signal ground connector on your Luxman. A simple way to do this is...

    Re: Signal ground connection question

    No.

    Before you connect anything to the ground post of your Luxman, find out from Luxman whether this is a connection for connecting to chassis ground or signal ground. They are completely...
  5. Re: Does size matter? Capacitors - few big vs many smaller

    Just some of the capacitors in my preamp....and it doesn't need to be a big as a D'Ag amp.

  6. Re: Does size matter? Capacitors - few big vs many smaller

    My hypothesis is...it depends. Reason I say this is that there is almost always more than one way to provide or mediate a transfer function, y=f(x) that drives a functional response. And, all audio...

    Cool. I love this stuff.

    Thanks, Mike.
  8. Re: In-Room Room Eq Wizard measurements of my GR-Research X-LS Encores

    Yeah, Randy, they look promising. I've set them up as the Mains for my home theatre AVR as when I'm not listening to the stereo, I have the TV on, generally 8-10 hours a day. That should run them in...
  9. Re: In-Room Room Eq Wizard measurements of my GR-Research X-LS Encores

    It'll be interesting to see how things develop once they are fully run-in.
  10. In-Room Room Eq Wizard measurements of my GR-Research X-LS Encores

    Some of you may remember my DIY build of the GR-Research X-LS Encores I did back in August, 2020. These cost me all of about 850 bucks, all in, including having the cabinets built, clamped and glued,...

    Re: Shunyata Everest 8000 Review

    I'm having a dejŠ vu, all over again...I just answered this same exact question about two days ago.

    Denali 6000/S V2 is excellent, but cannot not match Everest. Robert Harley described Everest in...

    It's the quality of the mastering that matters most, anyway.

    Re: Shunyata Grounding System

    You'll have to ask the folks at Shunyata about that, or wait and see.

    What I will say is that the (chassis) ground-plane noise reduction system in Denali v2 and Everest, for example, is quite...
  16. Re: Danny Richie tears apart the Dynaudio Special 40s

    Found the photo of the S3.4 crossover. This looks pretty good, with Mundorf MKP caps and air-core inductors. I'd replace those sandcast resistors with Mills resistors, though, if I kept the XO's...
  17. Re: Danny Richie tears apart the Dynaudio Special 40s

    Yes, I'm a big Dyn fan, and find this disappointing, also. I have get into my S3.4s and see what's up with them at some point. I wasn't impressed with the internal wire they used when I swapped in...
  18. Re: Danny Richie tears apart the Dynaudio Special 40s

    It's clear from Danny's analysis that the S40s were built to a budget with cheap parts, connectors, wire, and damping materials and R&D time. The data shows it; look at the rough response of the...

    Re: Shunyata Grounding System

    You can certainly try it by connecting a grounding wire from the ground post on your Pass monos to one of the ground posts of your Denalis. I would use 14 AWG wire or larger. If you like the results,...
  20. Re: Danny Richie tears apart the Dynaudio Special 40s

    I didn't say that, and neither did Danny, so it's not accurate to generalize on Dyn's expertise based on a single speaker.

    And in the interest of full disclosure, I'm a huge fan of Dynaudio, and...

    Re: Shunyata Grounding System

    The guidance you received from Shunyata is correct. The GP-NR grounding system is a "chassis ground" system, NOT a signal ground system. Chassis grounding and signal grounding are two completely...

    Beautiful speaker.
  23. Danny Richie tears apart the Dynaudio Special 40s

    Literally and figuratively.

    Danny Richie of GR-Research recently did his extensive analysis (including measurements with his Clio system) of the Dynaudio Special 40.

    Looks like Dyn cheaped...

    Re: Dynaudio confidence 30 with gaia feet?

    I don't have any of those Dyns, nor the IsoAcoutics Gaia footers, but one of the biggest improvements I've ever made to my system was to put my REL R-305 sub on A/V Roomservice EVPs. Significant...

    I'm not sure what the "question" was...but if I could make a suggestion, it would be to look into improving your room.

    Diffusion panels and strategically placed absobers or bass traps can bring...
