Re: Can you connect USB Extrenal HD to AA linkstatic 12/02/20 12:47 PM
Well, I just thought I would plug the WDMyCloud 500 GB USB external hard drive into the Axiom Air Transformer and see if I could access music files on it.

It works perfectly, connects and plays my music files from it just fine.

Re: What video games are you playing tonight? rrlev 12/02/20 08:40 AM
I’m just going by any distance to screen size chart. I did quote the last post from memory but the numbers are close enough for the exercise. You can get more exacting distances off the chart below or read a full discussion on it In the link ... Rtings did one of the better discussion on why and when tv resolution becomes visible.

Re: Help needed with M5HP receiver options Sinclair 11/30/20 03:36 AM
brendo, I agree that some of those old designs are mind boggling, amazing and scary at the same time. Also agree on the value of science and engineering the enthusiasts of vintage hi-fi equipment carry on.

Speaking about Paul McGowan, I agree that his style and narrative might not be greatest/best for everyone. Still, he has achieved a lot as an engineer and entrepreneur. And, perhaps the most important thing is that he did not outsource and that requires lots of guts. Endless legion of others sold their souls to cheap manufacturing while keep asking high $ for their product with the smile on their faces. Last but not least, isn't Ian trying to promote Axiom speakers in his youtube videos? I think he is and I think that is absolutely fine and, actually, expected from him and anyone else who is proud of his achievements and interested in promoting his business. So does Nelson Pass and many others. Nelson has certainly more entertaining style, for sure smile

Thank you for recommending Hans Beekhuyzen, pure pleasure...

Re: What useful things do you make with speaker parts? bridgman 11/27/20 04:50 AM
Back in our university days there was a Philips DeForest building on the way between home and school. One of my friends would dumpster-dive for rejected woofers and re-cone them.

The things we do to pay our way through school.

Re: Axiom active LFR1100 vs. MBL Radialstrahler rrlev 11/26/20 04:13 AM
Ahh, I was thinking of something non-audio ... since you just spent $20k on audio stuff.
How about a trip to see the sights of the world ...
Or paying off your debt and investing the rest ... using the yearly income for something.

I'm sure there have to be some more creative ideas on what to do with it.

Re: Time to Upgrade Mojo 11/26/20 03:36 AM
Sweet. M5OW for sure.

Not sure you need a center given your listening distance and separation of your fronts.

Punt the center and QS8s for QS10. Maybe only two QS10? Is the 3rd QS8 behind you? Can you hear it doing anything?

You'll have a big upgrade with M5 and QS10.

Re: OLED vs QLED?? bman84 11/25/20 06:24 PM
That 88" OLED would be incredible to have. Hopefully it's a bit more attainable in about 5 years time.

That's a good point on Vizio. Too bad, as they were starting to show some real promise. I think their OLED's are making a bit of a splash in the US though.

OLED's are very consistent, which is a big part of why I'm finding the 48" LG CX to be the best monitor I've ever owned. If I can get it to run 3840x1600 at 120Hz, it'll be perfect. As much as I wanted to have a 77" in the basement, the cost is just a bit much. I was able to get the 75" TCL + 48" OLED + GTX 3080 for the same price.

Re: New finish bman84 11/24/20 01:52 PM
ARC makes a massive improvement in my room, and does a far better job than Audyssey XT32. I'm sure I could improve things further if I had the time to experiment and tweak, but the default 20-minute setup sounds great to me. Anthem is releasing a new line of receivers/processors in December, and I'm sure those will do an even better job of utilizing ARC (new calibration mic for one).

Basement 2.0 bman84 11/24/20 10:42 AM
I've made a few changes this year. Swapped the VP180 for a VP160, replaced M5 in-walls with M5 on-walls, and got a new TCL 6-series QLED. The system is sounding better than ever!

Here's the TV in action: https://photos.app.goo.gl/AcrgRuDzR1ARxd257

Re: Song Share- Stereo Fuel TrevorM 11/23/20 10:46 PM
I use bluos in my NAD receiver in the basement. Does the job!

If you have a receiver with spotify connect that would be the preferred method over bluetooth. I use bluetooth upstairs from an ipad mini to an arcam rblink. Sounds great.

Btw, the issue I’ve found with bluetooth is as much in the sender as in the receiver. My newish ipad mini sounds much much better than my phone. Dunno why.

Lid for the Air Mojo 11/17/20 04:04 AM
Has anyone ordered a different lid for their Air? I have walnut nutmeg which I don't find too pretty. I'd like to get the Boston Cherry which is now offered in real wood veneer. How is it ordered?

Re: Sound beaming Mojo 11/15/20 06:54 AM
John, I don't know how ears are tracked but the audio is indeed "sent" ultrasonically. The carrier frequency is ultrasonic and is modulated with audio.

Edit: the only way I can see how to ear track is via optics and image recognition. Once located, distance has to be figured out and head-related transfer functions to steer the channel carriers to each ear.

Yup, many drivers. The more drivers, the greater the spatial resolution.
