Solid State Low powered Amplifiers
The Schiit Aegir 2 should be released before the end of the month. It sounds like they are playing with very low feedback. The Output Impedance is .8ohm… Damping Factor of 10. It’s 25w/ channel into 8 ohms. Sounds like Jason at Schiit has creat... 
Five feet from the front wall
it's easy to over damp a room for hi-fi..we generally like the reverb of our rooms...but control rooms don't want the room involved...they of course aren't listening for enjoyment.  So this is the challenge...the panel sellers don't really unders... 
Five feet from the front wall
OMG, does no one on here actually read the OP’s question? I have long wondered the same thing; When a reviewer says they placed the speakers 2 feet from the wall, are they talking front or back of the speakers? Almost no one on here seems to actu... 
Recommend me a DAC under 3k
Take a look at the RME ADI-2 DAC FS. It excels at clarity & detail, yet isn’t overly bright or clinical. I have mine installed in my secondary system & I’m extremely happy with it. It has toslink input & is well priced at $1300. Best ... 
Affordable SS that sound like Tubes
Van Alstine solid state. SET 120 I think is $1200…it’s a steal  
As he promised, Guttenberg reviews the Eminent Technology LFT-8c.
@ricevs Lii 15  I don't really want to start an argument but a single driver design playing wideband with no filtering can't measure flat. I wish this wasn't a truth, but it is.  Regarding DSP, I agree easy to play with....   
As he promised, Guttenberg reviews the Eminent Technology LFT-8c.
@ricevs I'm sure that would be amazing if you were able to get the filters right in the mini DSP.  Regarding Lii Audio I still wouldn't connect amp directly to driver without passive filter or DSP for baffle step correction...there is no getting ...

John Atkinson knows how to measure a dipole...but I agree an average Joe would struggle to get the best possible measurement just like they would struggle to get the room and placement just right for that tiny sweet spot...reviewer gatekeeping is ... 
As he promised, Guttenberg reviews the Eminent Technology LFT-8c.
When Stereophile reviewed the original version it was kind of a disaster...John Atkinson is normally pretty nice about poor measuring speakers but this one just looked broken. A lot of time has passed and my question for Eminent would be how they ...

Here is a SUPER SIMPLE serious speaker. Buy a pair of the Lii Audio Platinum 10 inch full range drivers ($2200) and mount them on a four foot by 2 foot piece of multiply damped baffle and have four foot by 2 foot wings on the sides going back. No... 
Front or Back wall diffusers
The main difficulty with setting up diffuse panels are you do not want them too close to your listening position. Six feet away is the minimum and at least eight feet away is the preferred.  @axo0oxa 6-8 feet away for diffusion? To diffuse lowe... 
Front or Back wall diffusers
Also, about 6 years ago, when drawing the original plans for the house of stereo, GIK told me that the front wall should be addressed last if at all. Just saying. @baylinor GIK told me the same thing as it's the furthest reflection point for an... 
Front or Back wall diffusers
Thanks for sharing I think it's sound advice. I have never heard of a bass trap making a space feel larger...for me traps make my room feel smaller and more intimate.  I have also never heard of putting diffusion directly behind a speaker. My tho... 
Front or Back wall diffusers
I would be embarrassed to show a picture as my room is such a cluttered mess (free diffusion, right?).  Here are some good diagrams. https://www.audioholics.com/room-acoustics/room-acoustics-acoustic-treatments/room-acoustics-acoustic-treatments-... 
Front or Back wall diffusers
@seanheis1 @axo0oxa I’m seeing several people here advocating for diffusion over absorption.  Are there any general rules as to when/where it’s better to use diffusion or absorption?  I’m very interested and not clear on this at all.  My guess is...
