I am happy to report that I went back to Glenn Poor's Audio and did another calibration.  Lorr Kramer was there and as you might imagine the calibration was great and the Realiser simulated 98% of the sound of a $100,000+  Wilson/BAT/Esoteric system.  It was mind boggling.

 

Lorr was much more careful with the placement of the microphones in my ears and I suspect that made all the difference.

 

Thank you to all of you who encouraged me to try it again.  I'm really glad I did.  This thing is amazing - they should be selling like hotcakes.

 

My only concern at this point is trying to figure out how I will get a few more quality PRIRs.  I've got one, but that doesn't feel like enough.

A good way to get exposure to high end systems is through local and regional audio societies. Some retail audio salons are willing to let people do emulations, especially if you're willing to compensate them for their time.

Anyone here get PRIR measurements in the Boston area?

"How was the event at Glenn Poors? I found out to late to make it over."

 

 

Sorry, I can't really say.  I was there in the afternoon, well before the event started.

 

I can tell you that Lorr Kramer of Smyth was a delight to work with, and was a big factor in my deciding to buy a Realiser.

And did you make it work using the Split A/V option in the Video Setup-> Dual HDMI Output menu, and/or something else?
post #2410 of 2628

-> Split A/V option in the Video Setup-> Dual HDMI Output menu

 

that worked. 

 

+ it works only on hdmi out 2 (oppo player).

 

my setup:

 

Oppo hdmi out 2 -> dvdo quick 6 output 2 -> realiser  

 

video = dvdo quick 6 output 1 -> projector.

 

but i still couldnt get multichannel working with dune hd base 3d.. i tried everything.. but failed :)

 

im very happy with oppo 103, it almost plays everything. but a bit slower than dune hd base 3d.

Yes, please write the app!

But can you imagine being able to play back your music and apply a PRIR and HPEQ in real-time in an iPhone or iPad?

 

That's what someone mentioned that Lorr had mentioned.

 

(Or maybe I should just write an app to do it. The algorithms used in the VST plugins are very well known and not proprietary.)

I have a Dune as well, and tried everything to make it work in multichannel with the Realiser.

I haven't succeed.

I guess the Dune's EDID doesn't like it.

 

The only to get multichanel audio from the Dune to the Realiser, is with a file with PCM5.1 audio.

There are a few posts about what doesn't pass lpcm- what actually does work?

Dune HD Max or Duo, but apparently no other Dune devices will work.

 

People have had luck with the Oppo players. I have never owned one, so I cannot confirm, but if you search this thread for Oppo, you will see that people have had success with the Oppo players.

 

The Sony Playstation 3 also works, so I have read. Again, I do not own one.

 

I have tried several other Blu-Ray players, and they seem to work. I can't recall all the exact model numbers, but usually the higher end models from Samsung, Panasonic, LG, etc. work. OK, I have a Samsung BD-D6500 and a Panasonic DMP BDT-320 that works for optical media playback. I also have a really cheap $80 Blu-Ray player that works, but I can't even recall the manufacturer.

 

The hardest part for me was finding a device that plays ripped files over a network or locally from a hard drive. If you are only playing from DVD or Blu-Ray discs, then I think most Blu-Ray players will work. Most media players will not work.

My concern is output from an integra 80.3processor which outputs data from a directv DVD or ps3. I would like to input that into an oppo and output multichannel lpcm.
