Equalizer in a Hi Fi system
@jtcf I have my preamp in front of my listening position under the television. My control units sit on an end table on the left side of my sofa (listening and watching position) I run my cables along the back and side walls. No real intrusion into... 
Equalizer in a Hi Fi system
@jtcf Since the API is a pro piece it is a fully balanced design and will support very long cable runs with very little to no signal degradation, you could place the unit within easy reach of your listening position so you do not have to get up to... 
Anyone have experience with using de-esser for sibilance in home audio system?
You say that you hear the sibilance issue when using ear buds, so that eliminates the room as an issue. Sounds like you have at least two systems maybe three depending on where the ear buds are used. Assuming the gear for each system is unique to ... 
Anyone have experience with using de-esser for sibilance in home audio system?
but I do hear it through earbuds. This is a problem. Do you only hear it when a "S" or "SH" is enunciated, or do you hear it thru the entire vocal track? Does it sound like a very high pitched hissing sound or more like a high pitched ringing... 
Anyone have experience with using de-esser for sibilance in home audio system?
I would be surprised if there is anything wrong with your ears. Does the issue happen with every song that you hear or only with some of the songs? As far as the de-esser is concerned it could possibly help, as could a parametric e.q. Most de-ess... 
Subwoofer xLr connection
The bottom processor link below may have preamp capabilities. You would have to contact them directly to verify. Links one and two are to balanced analogue crossovers and links three and four are to crossovers with DSP processing. https://www.jl... 
New TT : Balanced vs. Unbalanced Connection?
The turntable itself is neither balanced or unbalanced, it is the cartridge that can either be wired balanced or unbalanced and it is my understanding that virtually all cartridges are capable of being wired balanced. If you use the XLR connectors... 
Subwoofer xLr connection
I assume that the 1100XL is a discontinued model since a search on their website ends with no results? Regardless you can connect a balanced XLR output to an unbalanced XLR input. They will work, you just will not get the common mode noise rejecti... 
Using PA Speakers In A Home "Audiophile" Application!
Currently in my system I am using some touring level outboard gear with what I think are excellent results. I am not using touring level speakers but I have been wanting to compare some of Meyer Sound Labs products like the UPM-1P, UltraX20 and th... 
Little help with REL subwoofers, please?
You can try a T9x or a T7x to see what happens. Hopefully you can get them on a trial basis. As long as neither sub can reproduce the offending frequency of the room with enough power you should be good to go, but if either of the subs can reprodu... 
Little help with REL subwoofers, please?
Classical organ can cycle very low. To reproduce frequencies below 40 Hz. takes insane amounts of power and when you factor in that our ears are not as sensitive to lower frequencies the task can become particularly difficult. I’m not sure that ev... 
Musical subwoofer under $2000
Before you buy any sub read this first. https://soundoctor.com/whitepapers/subs.htm In my opinion if you are not listening to loud bass driven rock of some type, the addition of a subwoofer to a full range speaker will not make a big enough impac... 
Rhythmic F12SE setup using line in
I believe that your Marantz along with the Audyssey was performing both low and high pass functions and some e.q. functions. If you are unable to incorporate the Audyssey into your current setup you no longer have any of their benifets I.e. clear.... 
REL .LFE input
Why not just use the left and right low level inputs? Or does your REL not have them?  
What are your exact settings for volume and low pass filter on your SVS sub?
I have 2) SB4000’s  paired with Wilson Tune-Tots. I have the SVS output levels set at -3, but the whole system is controlled by a XTA DSP unit, using Audiocore software installed on a laptop. Crossover points and volume levels will vary somewhat d...
