    Last of Google's CHROMECAST AUDIO - now $15

    Thanks for the info!
  2. Regarding this with La Scala's... If there is still too much "boom" in the room broaden the bandwidth by lowering the Q. Salt to taste

    I was going to get another one for the family room but missed it by a couple of hours yesterday. Reminds me of Logitech and the Touch. Still doesn't make sense to me why they didn't continue to pursue that market.

    Heresy III’s on the way!

    What are you going to use as a Pre?
  5. My 1976 La Scala's produced their own fart sound when I first got them (only slight exaggeration). Starting at around 85db and up they really produced some lousy noise. They had spent their life in a choir loft organ installation so I imagine they were exposed to a lot of heat through the years. A large injection of glue at all the joints and bracing the bins took care of the vibration. This didn't do anything for the 148hz peak. I had never heard about this peak being a characteristic of La Scala's but was playing with DSP settings by ear to get pretty close to finding this out on my own. I just assumed it was my room causing the issue. Using pink noise I found that I had gotten pretty close already but was able to dial it in great. The iPhone makes for a surprisingly good spl meter. You don't have to go to an active crossover. If you are using a DAC it can be pretty simple to dial in these settings into DSP that is available with some players. I originally used Foobar which can get pretty close to the settings you want. Roon (I know... it's expensive) allows you to dial this in perfectly. What a nice difference there is dropping 148hz 7db (q=8)! We can do this even with our passive crossovers. However, I haven't figured out how I'm going to address this for vinyl. I might go as far as to digitize my vinyl so I can play it back via DAC with DSP enabled.

    veneering tips needed

    Good Job! That can be a hard lesson when you don't quit when you are tired. I find that making notes for myself and checking them off as I go can help. Thanks for sharing!

    SVS or Klipsch sub?

    The OP might not be interested in the price range but "stupid" is inappropriate

    veneering tips needed

    Use a razor blade as stated! I don't know what I was thinking and used a box knife on one of my miters on a receiver cabinet which left a tiny gap. Fill and stain made it disappear 95% but it's still noticeable. I felt really stupid which is why you should never rush.

    Tuba HT Subs, Matching SOLD TO BRYAN

    Yeah, I remember when I joined! I had 2 pairs of Cornwalls a week later. Hang around and we can help you spend your money.
  11. I hate to say this is unfinished... cut plywood collecting dust sitting on my bench for WAY too long. Too many projects and things keep getting in the way such as water heater bursting and wiping out our kitchen. I stopped it quick but 50 gallons of water and mdf underlayment is a bad combination! I have some thoughts for the person who thought that was a good idea.

    Room Treatment: Diffusion

    Bass traps can absorb up too high if you ask me. Tube traps add some nice diffusion.
