  1. HDMI Regen

    I'm not really sure what you want to do. I have a Blustream HDMI matrix, one of these in particular: http://www.blustream.co.uk/mx42ab Using my PC connected it was able to read the EDID from my Projector and my TV. I could store store the EDIDs on my PC as files with the potential for modification. The EDIDs are also stored within the device itself. This makes any connected source device (HTPC, Foxtel box) think that the actual display device is connected (Projector or TV) and not the Matrix. This also makes switching very fast and reliable. After a bit of fiddling around it works flawlessly, I'm very happy with it.

    Um, Lewis is currently 28 points ahead of Finger Boy. So even if Finger Boy won the next race (+25 points) and Lewis got 0, then Lewis would be 3 points ahead and in first place, ... still. Bottas is closer to Finger boy now than Finger Boy is to Lewis. I think a second place in the championship for Bottas behind Lews and ahead of Finger Boy is now quite a possibility.

    Maybe your man Red Baron Version 2.0 has learned by now that if Krashstappen goes left, you don't go following the nightmare.

    Fixed, just cause I like ya.

    You act like a big clown all the time and then ask me to grow up, come on don't be so precious. It's only a bunch of egotistical, over payed, maniac boys pretending to be men anyway.

    And neither will the 18 non-Scuderia drivers.

    You're still just like Vodka & Ice-Cream Man and Finger Boy; you still don't learn that Krashstappen won't change. If he was driving a red car Finger Boy would always be behind him so no problemo.

    LOL, if anyone including either red rose driver thought he was going to do that is in for a big surprise, wait they did get a big surprise! They should have learned by now that he won't back out of it. Finger Boy wasn't to blame but he certainly increased his risk by trying to squeeze Krashstappen. Maybe Finger Boy has learned now and will think better of it next time, but I really hope not!

    Not at all, no penalties applied.
  10. I think you're most likely right, but attributing way to much to your headphone amp, I think it has very little to do with it. Two words, room acoustics or rather lack thereof. But headphones can never thump you in the chest or make you feel vibration from head to toe.

    I'm crying ... ... tears of joy.
  12. I am honestly unsure of what these words mean, perhaps I don't have the background knowledge to understand. It seems like you might be highlighting a design aspect of these speakers. Perhaps someone else here can explain what it means. No offense, but you didn't really explain it in your post but rather repeated the sentence. Were you trying to say these speakers are going to be less influenced by the room than most other general speaker designs? Something like the Kii Audio THREE perhaps? At least we seem to agree that this system will at least be somewhat influenced by the room. That is why I suggested a sub-woofer or two strategically placed may help the overall frequency response of the system, in room, does that make sense? Your previous response to this suggestion was: " John engineers all his systems to be free field referenced, which means capable to deliver their full performance in a free field environment and therefore, not room dependent. The vast majority of sound systems are designed to be room dependent. " So this made me think that there was some design aspect of these forthcoming speakers that totally negated even the idea of having to consider room interaction and as such this course of action. This is what caused me confusion. In the end you can do whatever you want but I've been doing this HIFI thing for a while (like yourself) and I am an absolute unbeliever that a pair of stereo speakers without a well integrated sub-woofer or two or three or four can ever be an end game reference system. Maybe a pair of Kii Audio THREE's which incoporates fancy-smancy wave technology, but even then I have my doubts, especially over it's output levels. Don't think for a second I don't think that what you have coming won't be really-bloody-fantastically-good. Anyway, good luck with it, I'm sure everyone who's read this thread is looking forward to seeing the end result.
  13. Hi, here's my bunch if excuses not to. I don't have any digital outputs on my DEQX so that rules out avoiding a ADC. I have mono'd the subs with the minDSP 2x4 HD, it quite simply facilitates this. I can and have managed the delay of each sub individually, once again the miniDSP 2x4 HD provides such functionality. And I really don't want to do a speaker measurement and correction because I think my brain might pop. Cheers.
  14. To quote you: John engineers all his systems to be free field referenced, which means capable to deliver their full performance in a free field environment and therefore, not room dependent. The vast majority of sound systems are designed to be room dependent. I don't expect that at all. I've seen passive systems with much EQ applied and active systems with no EQ applied. This is in relation to room correction not anechoic speaker correction. I see no relationship with octave ranges and crossovers. Other than frequencies between 80Hz and 20Hz are omni-directional which as you know means the direction of their source cannot be determined. This crossover point is the THX standard and represents the last two octaves of human hearing, not three. And I think you mean to say IMD is reduced, not avoided. And really to reduce it the steepness of the crossover points not the number of crossover points will far more influence that.
  15. Good question! They are not identical but the first impulse peak time is.
