    I read the article and 1 thing strikes me as funny. The claim is super neutral ? The reviewer claims he is comparing the amp to others he has had with music he is accustomed to. It is BS to call the amp neutral as compared to A or B you can only call anything neutral if you were present at the master recording session and are comparing the product to that. But of course that brings up another whole pot of beans Musical Memory and all...............At 9-14K, The amp better be cooking breakfast every morning. Cost more than my whole system and I would bet it just sounds DIFFERENT when all is said and done, not necessarily better.

    You are correct, Sir!

    Who is feeling this way today with another great crash?  The last  few crashes are due to US policy related to the US policy.  Are you willing to take a big hit on current policy?  A simple yes or no is all that is need.  The crash will set you back 2 or 3 years.  Wait, we got a tax cut, I call BS on all the help from the tax cuts. and would gladly give it up.

  3. Looks like the last game in the Big Ten will determine who will be in the final 4 for the National Championship.  The Big Ten Champ at the end of the season will stand on it's own merit with little questionable controversy.

    Probably not a lot of grey area with Guy Richie's take on this one. It actually bombed at the box office & most are either gonna love it or hate it. Fortunately I enjoy Guy Richie's distinct point of view.

    No opinion on this one, everyone fell asleep 30 min. into the movie.

    two R-115SW's will run all over a single SB-16 at 20 hz.  SVS is usually more reliable and for music it will be tighter and more accurate though.  Pros and cons of each.  

    I want to say what Metro said!!!

  6. I should of define what a MBM (Mid Bass Module) is and who needs them.  A mid bass module will cover the frequency range of 50-250 Hz.  Why add a MBM?  For some small rooms, there will be a null in the frequency range of the MBM.  This is not correctable by EQ which is mainly used to bring down peaks and raise small dips.  MBM will provide more chest thump and club like music tactile response.  YYMV with employing a MBM so, they are not meant for everyone and may or may not be a good addition to a HT or music system.


    MBM are usually made with a 12 woofer.  A subwoofer can be used but, cutting it off at 50 Hz  is giving up a lot of what it was made to handle in HT.  A MBM is placed different than most subs.  These modules are commonly used nearfield with a delay to be in synch with the subwoofers.  This is not a process done by ear and REW or Omni mic should be used or some other measuring system.


    It should be noted that many systems with adequate subwooferage may lack the chest thump due to a lack of mid bass caused by SBIR(speaker boundary interference).  This SBIR can cause large dips or suckouts in some rooms.  This can cause destructive interference between direct and indirect sound waves in the room.  So, it is possible to have high spl at the MLP and miss the chest thump.  In an ideal world, one would place 4 subwoofers at the mid point on the 4 walls, followed by on sub in each of the 4 corners as a second choice.  I can't overemphasize that a truly  optimal HT will have subwoofer in the front and back of the room if the wall mid points are not available.


    As a closing statement, we don't see many people on the forum complaining  about the 8000 to 25 kHz range where there are few audible modal problems. I don't get caught up on which speaker is better or what avr I should buy because  Klipsch has  many offerings and there are an abundance of  quality avrs.  Proper setup  is the key to making or breaking a system no matter what dollar amount has been spent.  You can't buy quality sound without understanding what is going on in the room!!!
