 To be clear... the digital audio via HDMI from source (e.g. PC) to Realiser MUST BE LPCM, i.e. DECODED DISCRETE MULTI-CHANNEL from DD5.1 or DD7.1 or DTS or whatever. The Realiser does not have any decoding capability of its own, so if you just pass on the still-encoded multi-channel audio from the source program being played by the PC it will not work. Whatever you use on the PC to deliver multi-channel digital audio out via HDMI must also decode that digital audio to...
 You don't have to use the DAC/amp in the Realiser and the analog headphone outputs. You can instead use the alternative optical/digital output of the SVS processing to feed your own DAC. You don't produce a PRIR (i.e. measurement of sound in ANY environment as hear by your own ears) in a special reference speaker setup. And ideally, you don't use any pre-created PRIR (since there is no such thing as a "general purpose PRIR") nor do you use anybody else's PRIR for any...
As far as I'm concerned, I got my money's worth... no matter what it cost me.  Anybody else that's heard what the Realiser can do with their own custom made PRIR/HPEQ at a top multi-channel environment whose sound they like (e.g. AIX for me) and with high-end headphone playback equipment can't help but feel the same. I'm only glad it was finally brought to reality and made available for purchase by civilians like us.   For many many years, I used a vanilla Panasonic...
 First off... your suggestions for "audiophiles bringing gifts" gratuities are definitely terrific.  Myself, I go for a #11 with lettuce and tomato and thousand island dressing at Langer's (along with a bowl of chicken noodle soup).  And at Bay Cities I request a custom sandwich: Genoa salami and Parma prosciutto with provolone, "the works" but NO MUSTARD, mild peppers and some extra red wine vinegar though I don't fault those that request a Godmother. As far as how to...
Dr. Mark Waldrep (of AIX Studios) runs an online company named iTrax which sells the type of audio files you're probably looking for.   AIX itself also has a subsidiary named AIX Records, which sells disc versions of HD audio.   You can check these both out, to see if they satisfy your needs.
 I don't believe there's any affect on the sound field itself, or the audio illusion duplicating the listening environment that the PRIR captured.  It's still the same PRIR, and it's still the same headphone equipment (and corresponding HPEQ) that you're listening through. The only difference is that turning your head has zero effect on what you hear.  You could close your eyes, turn your head, and it sounds unchanged.  This isn't what happens in the "real world" if you...
 Many (including myself) don't use the head tracker at all.  Never have, because I found it very uncomfortable and distracting to try and keep my head upright and pointed straight ahead so that the two green lights were both on and "balanced sound" reached both of my ears equally same as would be the case with true speakers and looking straight ahead at the screen.  I found myself constantly looking up at the tracker sitting on top of the TV, to be sure both green lights...
 Two separate questions? The red "standby" LED is simply on at a constant brightness.  No setting to adjust its brightness. As far as the LED screen and white lights, the design is to have the in "bright" mode for only when you might be doing something or interested in something displayed on the screen.  Otherwise, after 10 seconds or so the lights go auto-dim so as not to be as distracting in a darkened viewing environment (if the equipment is visible to you).  What is it...
 I would agree with this observation.  I might describe it as "hollow, echo" sounding. The PRIR I got at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood (Lorr had made special arrangements) a few years back is notoriously "echoic".  We were sitting first row balcony in a large empty theater, and listening to anything through that PRIR is certainly unpleasant.  The original sample PRIR I got at the Smyth offices in Camarillo back in 2009, in their untreated demo room, was also very...
When you complete a PRIR measurement done properly, the final step is normally an A-B comparison (with the headtracker active, in order to facilitate the easy on/off of sound through either the headphones or the speakers) where you first put the headphones on while listening to Realiser-generated "solo" WAV sound from each speaker individually, and then take the headphones off while tilting them down so that the headtracker mutes the headphones and sends the same sound to...
