    Blu-Ray issue

    I tried to play a disc last night and although the audio was fine, the picture was all jacked up. Below is the best picture I could find that mimic'd the video i was getting. It was quite that bad, but close enough. I tried a different cable, i tried reseating the cable in both the player and...

    MiniDSP USB Microphone I have a Behringer ECM8000 measurement microphone I bought several years ago. I also bought and external sound card for laptop so i could do testing using TrueRTA. Now, several years later, my laptop no longer supports the external soundcard i used to have. Looking at...

    Cheap Bluetooth 2 channel amp

    I've got a speaker kit i'm finally going to get around to building sometime soon. My initial thought is to bring them in for my office - partly as a talking point, but also to be able to listen to some music while I’m working. The best place for me to put it is on a file cabinet facing my desk...

    Social Distortion

    For those that like Social Distortion, you'll be happy to know they're going into the studio at the end of the year for a new album, the first since January 2011. And I just saw them last night... worth seeing for sure, but i liked the other headliner better, Flogging Molly. But they are my...

    Fire Stick 4k -- First Impression

    Until recently, I've been streaming Netflix through my Dish receiver and Amazon Prime through my TV's smart TV app. Neither option has been perfect -- I'll get the occasional freeze, dropped resolution rate, etc. Definitely a first world problem, but annoying nevertheless. On a sort of whim, I...

    Measuring Software

    Just a curiosity thing... other than TrueRTA and REW, what other "good" and "inexpensive" audio measuring programs are there out there? And of those that have used both (and I wouldn't imagine there are a lot of those here) any pros/cons between the two?

    Turntable for OLD records

    I've inherited an extensive collection of old records -- everything from the phonograph cylinders to the record "books" built to be played on a 78rpm turntable to dozens of random albums. I will be getting the old players as well; however, I'd like to preserve the records as much as I can and I...

    Ruminations on a DIY Powered Desktop Speaker System

    Just one of those things, thinking of what I might look to buy if I were to try and build an relatively inexpensive powered speaker system for my bedroom. Since I wanted to avoid work as much as possible, i jumped on Madisound's website to look at some full range speakers that I thought might...

    Any new music I should be listening too?

    Since I'm in the midst of tax season, i'm listening to a LOT of music at work, but I'm kind of bored with the stuff I have saved. Anything new that I should listen to? Stuff I like that I think would be a good indication of what I'm looking for - and if you can find a common thread among these...

    Wax Cylinder Archive

    An uncle of mine has a pretty decent collection of old -- for the most part, they're 78s -- records. He also has more than a few old cylinder records, with the players for both. Unfortunately, he's in a home now and the family is clearing out his old room and I'm getting the collection. I wanted...

    Fire Stick or Fire TV

    I have an older plasma TV that I'm not going to be replacing anytime soon. I have an Echo Dot. I subscribe to Amazon Prime, Music and Netflix. Is there any reason to go with the Fire TV over the Fire Stick? It's not a huge price difference, but if there's no benefit, I'd rather not fork out the...
