    So Long Logitech Harmony

    I really like the Harmony Ultimate One / Harmony Hubs I'm using in both my systems. I'm going to have to stock up on batteries and hope they don't break. The only other user friendly option is the Caavo, but it is not set up to address audio-only sources. This is very disappointing.

    So Long Logitech Harmony

    Caavo remotes are really nice. I have one and like it a lot. The downside is that it cannot handle things like bias lights and TV lifts. If all you have is a TV, receiver and source components, it is beautiful.

    So Long Logitech Harmony

    I used to use URC remotes back in the day and found them to be both harder to set up and less reliable. I wish I'd know they were going to do this. I would have bought a few more remotes. Oh well. I have one for each of my system and they should last a long time if I can get batteries.

    So Long Logitech Harmony

    Oh shit. The battery in one of mine is dying. It looks like I'll have to find a shop that can replace it. This really sucks. I guess that leaves Universal and those are a pain to set up.

    This is one of the reasons why I switched from lossless files to the highest quality 320K rips I could make from them. They work on everything and I cannot tell the difference at all with 99% of the material I listen to.

    Masque Acoustics

    I had the speaker system in my family room for about 9 months while waiting for the cabinet. This is what the setup looked like. I was always paranoid someone would kick a speaker by accident. One of my cats put a scratch in a midrange cone. Just cosmetic and I can replace the driver easily...

    The TV lift is mounted to the very back of the unit. The lift itself is pretty heavy, but the motor and a lot of the mechanism are down in the cabinet. It could still arguably fall backward into the wall, except the cabinet is 24 inches deep and weighs 250 pounds with almost all the weight in...

    Oh, I forgot to mention this, but you might have noticed the fans on the back are attached to removeable panels. Disconnect the power to the fan controller and they pop right off for easy access to the interior. I did not do that the first time around and wiring was miserable.

    There is a company called Axiim that makes a really nice WiSA pre/pro, but they are only selling them as part of a system. They used to sell them individually and I wonder if they are having a stocking problem. They cost about $1100, but it would be worth it if I could get my hands on one. It...

    I need to get the Harmony set up first. That is the last bit I need to do and it is a pain in the ass because of the lift. Once that is done, I'll be able to do a proper demo video where you hit the button, it rises out of the cabinet, the backlight comes on and the display comes on. If I were...

    Masque Acoustics

    Please bear in mind that this is really a prototype and there may be adjustments when I start working with a real furniture maker. The cabinet does not have a baseboard notch and you have to leave a little space for the cord, so it almost has to be an inch or two off the wall. The fans do not...

    I did enough laser cut panels to do three sets of doors. These are the other two. The first set are rift cut oak, like the set on the cabinet. The second set are composite and designed for paint.

    Masque Acoustics

    This is a reimagining of the console TV/Stereo systems of the 50s and 60s. They were entertainment and part of the décor. There is nothing like this out there. Not only could I not find anything comparable, I paid for a market study and they didn't find anything either. Franklin designed and...

    I cannot say enough about what an amazing job Flint did on the speakers. The Chinese vendor I worked with on the plate amps was not easy to deal with and he had to go back and forth with them for months to get the firmware right. He also had to change the speaker cabinet dimensions at least...

    A little more than two years ago, I set out to create a home theater company focused on fully integrating home theater systems into beautiful cabinets that blend into the décor of any room. Flint worked more than a year designing a fully active speaker system built around WiSA certified plate...

    It was a pre-launch promo. Three years for a lump sum that worked out to $4/mo.

    If I were not pre-paid for another two years, I would have considered dropping it over the Gina Carano firing. I'm getting super tired of this shit.

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it.....

    They cost less than a hundred dollars, so there is likely other stuff out there at high price points. My only complaint with them is that they don't sound great if you turn them up loud unless you add a subwoofer with a crossover and remove the bass from the speakers. That said, they are not...

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it.....

    Flint could make you something amazing to spec, but probably not active speakers at that price point. Have you looked at Mackie or Edifier? I have affordable small speakers from both and am quite happy with them. Mackie CR3s meet your dimensions. I have a pair on my desk and like them a lot, but...
