On October 1 Rachel And I plan to host a touring artist for a very small afternoon performance at our home. Very relaxed, outdoor and room for maybe 30. Details are being fleshed out right now however I am keen to gauge interest in such an idea. There will be a ticket charge ($20, the entire amount going to the artist) via House Concerts Australia which seems a brilliant idea to me. More info on the concept at www.houseconcertsaustralia.com
The performer is www.bartstenhouse.com
Im hoping we can pull a decent crowd and help support some grass roots music. Let me know if you're keen!!
FrankN +8 or so!
plus about 12 non SNA folk.
As the title asks, who here uses this?
I thought my room sounded good before, but after further experimentations, wow.
It is said that EQ is really the last resort. You should be aiming to fix room issues with treatments first, then applying EQ. Yet very few people actually treat their room and most rely on the auto EQ provided in their systems (Audyssey etc). The last time I did this, I was trying to workout the peaks from the bouncing dots and this time, I have applied smoothing to make the peaks easier to see. EQing is about pulling put the peaks to make the response flatter, not making the systems louder. I only have 7 bands of EQ per channel, so have played around with the RTA, a very cool tool that is a part of REW, to make these adjustments. This just might be the flattest I have ever had my system. ignore the audio picked up by the phone mic. The video starts at left screen, cycles through each channel, and ends back at left screen. The system is stimulated by tones from the AVR. Once I set the level, I worked through each channels in turn, then did a final level calibration to ensure I was playing back at +75dB/C/Slow.

I am planning for an HT room and would like to go Atmos/DTS-X. It is more the restricted Atmos setup with the ceiling speakers that is making my life difficult. I have an exposed ceiling with the roof studs starting at 220cm and the ceiling at 250cm.
In the picture, the black cubes are the 7 channel setup, (I know, no center or sub in the picture), the orange cube are Atmos 35 degree angle from LS, and the green are Atmos 45 degree angle from LS speakers. The six grey cubes are "chairs" and the blue box in the back of the room is a pantry that I cannot move, I might build a cabinet in the other corner in the back to mirror it.
I was thinking for the LS and RS to go with bi-pole speakers, to suit the back row. For the LSB and RSB I will probably go with mono pole speakers due to the pantry (and possible cabinet)
For the ceiling speakers I was thinking to go with box speakers angled toward the LS. These speakers within the Atmos preferred dimension will sit smack bang against the exposed roof stud. I could build a lowered floating ceiling to mount the speakers in, but they exposed roof studs will still be in the way since I don't want to lower my ceiling to 220cm height. Going Atmos 7.2.2 will have the same problem that the ceiling speaker will be sitting smack bang against the next exposed roof stud.
What would be the best option if not DTS-X
