  2. Dacs are like any other piece of gear, Research, and testing are required. I have gone through at least a dozen DACs in the journey. When you get the right one you will know it. DACs absolutely have differences in sound. The trick is getting one that meets your preferences, as well as exceling at. Detail, Resolution, Clarity, Decay etc... I have seen you sell off amps etc... DACs are no different, If you want first class digital it will take a bit to get there. Have fun

  4. I’m starting this Topic for those interested in Acoustics and Room Optimization. Interest in the ASC Tube Trap were expressed in another thread and how they work as a Bass Trap so I will try to gather information and post in this thread as I get time and hopefully keep it updated for those interested. Art Noxon the inventor of the Tube Trap has written extensively on Acoustics in White Papers, AES Papers, Magazine Articles, Newsletters and has also made Videos to share his knowledge extending many decades and I highly suggest others to research them. I would like to cover some of the following all of which can be found in Art Noxon’s writings: Bass Traps: especially as it pertains to the transient nature of music and our listening environment. MATT TEST: invented by ASC (Acoustic Sciences Corporation) QSF (Quick Sound Field) Concept: which was born in the recording and mastering fields and I am experimenting with adapting it for my Listening Room as a logical extension of this powerful technique of controlling the listening environment. Acoustic Shadowing: another powerful tool which can be used in our listening rooms. I’ll start by posting some pictures of a room (converted garage) I’m experimenting with based on ASC Tube Traps and Concepts/Techniques I’ve learned from them and my implementation of the QSF Concept for a dedicated home listening room. miketn🙂 Front Wall: ASC Tube Traps in corners, RPG Skyline Duffusers, and ASC SoundPanel and ASC SoundPlank on custom ceiling grid/frame.

  6. Was hazy here, yesterday. Not so bad today, but still with us. We're in the 40` day/night temp spread. 60`AM Mid/high 90's in the afternoon Things are drying out. The cows are back in town. Another reason to mow the lush summer growth back. [The cows don't do a bad job clearing weeds ... it's just that they are rather indiscriminate and trample what they don't eat.] Wife goes to Flagstaff this week to attends the award/s ceremony. I think she said the winner would be announced Fri evening.. I'll have a quiet few days.

  7. Greetings! Your list is Impressive! However, the Museum has an unfair advantage. The current Archive index to "PWK Papers and Speeches" is attached. It is expected to grow when our archives are located in a space conducive to exploration. Note that most have a Klipsch date associated (YYMMDD). The folders have multiple page scans. The individual pages in the right three columns have yet to be collected into folders. There are also folders with additional content, such as the "Letter to the Editor" folder, also attached. I cannot supply all of these at this time, but a project to make all available does need to happen!

  12. Pick them blind folded likely not but I can tell you and anyone else that after a few hours with Higher res info I certainly am looking to go to red book. I find a LOT of the higher res stuff gets brittle and harsh

  13. Haha. I use foobar2000 as my player. When you go into settings, the "output" can be selected. Indeed nice Slabs of wood Dave. I'm sure that will make an amazing final product as always.

  22. I feel better, thought I was the only oddball who cooked them with chips for the grandkids. Added peanut once to try to make them taste like the peanut butter cups, it did not work at all, I even added about half a jar of peanut butter and they had very little peanut butter flavor so I tell them to just add it on top if they want it. They tend to like the crushed banana's or the blueberry the most.

  23. IMO, La Scalas need a subwoofer, or more, in most situations, which makes the djk mod a lot of effort for a stopgap fix. That said, there are situations where sub(s) are not practical or desired. The La Scalas I refurbished for a high school band practice room benefitted from the djk mod done by closing in the tops. There was no way a sub would be considered. One of the attributes of the djk mod is the easy and total reversibility. I would encourage hobbyist tinkerers to try the djk mod. To the impatient and/or unhandy, if La Scalas alone don’t have enough bass, then skip the djk mod and get a sub, or subs.

  25. A lot of things on here have been poo-pooed in the past. Still are. The idea of porting may be more acceptable now. 🤐

  26. A lot of “smoke haze” around the south central Midwest, KC area, from west coast wild fires. Weather pattern takes smoke to the north then swings down through south central. Quite noticeable and has been like this many times this summer. Stunning sunsets though -

  30. Thanks for the mention I’m not sure about who actually designed the lower bass cabinet for the La Scala However what I do know is - the original build on my speakers was done by member @sootshe For my part I actually measured the bass cabinet and uploaded those measurements for others to follow

  31. You use whaaa @Westcoastdrums??? Now I'm REALLY losted! hahaha I got a my old JBL128S Sub fired up a bit ago. Auction find for $150 coupled w/a new to me Sunfire plate amp? Also had some great help and guidance from a friend in here as to what to do and how to do it. I won't mention his name cause one of me floating around in here is enough! Finally hangin some stuff in here but that's on a temporary hold cause these LS coupled w/that old sub is killin me. Glad my neighbors love me is all I can say. hahaha Damn it's freakin incredible!

  33. Hi I will also put my 5 cents in as I have built almost the same project but in two separate blocks. Tweeter is B&C de10 with Dave small eliptrack, squawker is B&C DCM50 with fastlane 400 horn and woofer is crites 1526c. Crossover for now is upgraded Crites(with duelund) but it is temporary due to long waiting time for ALK. Currently, I stuck with crossover because crites and ALK allows for maximum 12db attenuation and it seems it isn't enough... With best regards, Andrew.

  36. Mike, I will give these a chance and have subscribed. As I have the attention span of a gold fish, I am curious if these are long and drawn out or quick tips that can be read in a couple of minutes. Room acoustics and treatments is something I would like to tackle this winter. I have been watching and trying to learn as much as possible. Some of the theories seem basic, but some seem to get over my head. At times I wish I could pay someone to come in my room and tell be what I need to build and where to put it for optimal use. Thanks for taking the time to continue this discussion.

  37. They sure did score a sh#tload of points. 122 to be exact against Akron and Alabama State. Doesn't really tell you much. Maybe I need to rethink my 63-0 PSU prediction. 😀

  45. @Full Range looked up that rastafarian-looking Lundgren kid with the lungs. His site where he states his love for mangos. The musicians he likes... wonder if he realizes how much he can resemble heavy metal singers from before he was born. That impressive heavy falsetto he does at about 1.5 minutes sounds like Rob Halford or maybe even Bruce Dickenson in the late 70s in their prime.

  46. Ask my ears what they like best ? And they will answer For the room the speakers are installed - we like the La Scalas better with the bass box mod Some things are what they are - they work or they don't A modification can only be proved or debunked if it's built and implemented to test - simple as that Question - Do you think the bass box would still be fitted to my speakers if the sound was worse
