Thanks, Cork. I would be interested in your opinion of the mobile apps. The ability to control music without having the main display turned on has become one of my requirements. I played with my Roku 2XD. It also fails that test, but did provide

I could not eliminate the peak/null at around 60hz in my test room by moving subs around. I tried several locations. The response didn't change enough to warrant more graph pics. -just a differing level of nullness by a few db or so. The dual setu

To answer your dilemma, you set your speakers, treat room, then tweak your positions if need be. It's really not as hyper dynamic as it seems. The speaker response direct/off axis doesn't change, just reflections. Since your mains are omni directi

Matt, there are guidelines for what and where. The unknowns are how many and how much (thickness/frequency coverage etc.) It really depends on the room material/furnishings (sabin/absorbtion calc.) and dimensions (volume) and intended use. These d

In the world of audio, there are two kinds of companies. Those who gather the dirt and those who dish the dirt. One doesn't want to be on the dishing end when the gatherers have their day.

I have not heard the model T. I hear they are exceptional sounding speakers, but I think you have figured out the part of diminishing return. Are they better than the M100? I have been told yes. I know that I would not be able to hear much dif

Has anyone done a direct comparison? Curious if the Bryston's are worth almost triple the price. I've been thinking about buying a pair of the T's.....BUT I can't imagine they are truly that much better than the M100's.... Any input please! Thx

Since apple took away iPhoto, and forced us to start using Photo's, I cannot link a face to any of my contacts. It seems that the only way to do this now it through an iPad or iPhone.
