I'm replying just to keep you talking now. Excellent information Boom. When you say reducing peak frequency are you meaning bumps in the in room response? (like 20db spikes or so?). I know one method is to reduce the ouptut at those peaks to re

No lag that I can tell. I could easily adjust via the "phase" dial on the sub if needed, but the easiest way (for movies) is to add a foot of distance to the sub from the listener electronically. This would force my Oppo to delay the othe

The 8033 user's manual doesn't go into very great detail about how it works. From what I've read online, it attenuates the peak frequency (one or more?) without doing any valley boosting. Therefore, the overall effect is to reduce the signal streng

Can you pretty please take measurements before and after? How does it work? Does it find the standing wave fundamental frequency and reduce its level while reinforcing its harmonics to give you better perceived notes without the standing wave patte

OK - DSPeaker Cinema 8033 "Anti-Mode" first impressions: I plugged the little box in between my preamp's sub output and my vented 15" subwoofer. I set the calibration microphone atop a tripod at the listening couch at the same height

Went to the opening night of U2 in Vancouver. A spectacular presentation both visual and sound. They have outdone themselves with this show.

I tried this IPA last night, but it wasn't a win in my opinion. A trend here in Atlanta (I don't recall this being a "thing" in Louisiana...) is session beers - lower alcohol, but (nearly) full flavor. So next time I'll try this!
