Long awaited Smyth SVS Realiser NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE - Page 185

post #2761 of 2765

As I posted before, anyone who owns some SE535s is welcome to try my SE535 HPEQ file and judge for themselves. :)

 

However:

 

- It is not straightforward to create HPEQ files using Blu-Tac. You need to do it carefully and may need several tries. I created several different HPEQ files with Blu-Tac (with a slightly different seal each time) and compared them to each other to judge which one was the best. I played the front speaker only, as that is the most difficult to 'virtualise' in my experience, and picked the HPEQ file which sounded the most 'outside my head.'

 

- Any HPEQ file created without Blu-Tac (or some other way of creating a seal) is useless, in my experience.

I have a question regarding the HPEQ-optimisation. In the manual it says at first:

 

...

For this compensation, the Realiser generates a filter which is the inverse of the measured response.
However, a complete inversion may be neither possible nor advisable, if, for example, there are anomalies that are large and the compensating inversions would cause overload or signal-to-noise issues.
Therefore the Realiser typically compresses the inversion.
...
 
and a little bit later it states
 
...
1.0
denoting a full inversion of the
measured response.
...

 

So does this setting mean the device let me do a "neither possible nor advisable" inversion or is it related to the maximum compression of the measured response? So if I set the inversion to 1 it would apply the maximum inversion which is possible without having issues regarding overload or signal-to-noise issues or it would ignore this issues and there may be some degrade in sound quality of the measured PRIR and possible overload/distortion problems?

 

My problem is that i have new super comfortable headphones, but the combination of the prir and headphone characteristics give me some shrillness on hot recordings. So i try to improve the treble response with different inversion settings. Is this the right way?

Just try what sounds best. Nobody else than Smyth knows how _exactly_ the inversion works.

It's clear HPEQ is not perfect, HD800 6khz peak makes it go crazy unless you lower the middle value.

Anyone using a tactile transducer with their Realiser /w success? I wanted to get some tips on configuration settings. I’m trying to understand the difference/relationship between Direct Bass, LFE redirection, bass management, HP MIX, MIX to HP, etc. After reading the manual a few times, these concepts are starting to blur for me.

 

Without a transducer I use Direct LFE (MIX TO HP: Yes, HP MIX: 0, plus Managed bass).

 

Not sure if these settings should be adjusted after introducing an transducer, e.g. If HP MIX should be used instead of mix blocks.

 

As is, something feels off with the rumbles (or maybe this is what it’s like), either too little or not natural.

I'm also very interested.

 

I'm looking for something to improve that bass sensation, silently.
