    Bowers & Wilkins P7 Wireless - Impressions Thread

    I have two questions. 1) I have the P7 wired. Can someone recommend a 3rd party storage case? I had the OEM case. The leather frayed too much. I bought a replacement OEM case in 2021. It had a similar fraying problem. I've never really loved the case, I only kept it because it fit the...

    Bowers&Wilkins new flagship the P9!

    I have the P7, which I got from 2014. I looked at B&W's website a few weeks ago, and noticed they don't have any more over the head wired headphones. Is this true? To me, it's hard to beat both its comfort, and its sound. I compared it with 2 other over the head headphones in 2014, the...

    Sub audio during test but not when playing something in Windows.

    I have a ROG CROSSHAIR VII HERO (WI-FI). https://rog.asus.com/us/motherboards/rog-crosshair/rog-crosshair-vii-hero-wi-fi-model/spec/ I tried connecting a 3.5mm cable from the orange port on the on-board sound card, to the red and white LFE ports on the subwoofer. Here is the manual for the...

    5.1 Home Theater Setup.

    I have had the Hsu VTF-3 for a few weeks. After almost two weeks of tech support with Hsu, and having the amp replaced, we can't figure out why I'm getting low output. Even after the amp replacement. We tried several different setting changes. And I can barely tell it's on, when I'm 2-3 feet...

    5.1 Home Theater Setup.

    I'm having trouble playing music with the SVS PB-2000 Pro, from my PC. I don't have a 2.1 mode in my sound settings. I set it to 5.1, then on the next screen, unselected center channel, and rear speakers. Then it asks which speakers are full range. At first I unselected both front and...

    5.1 Home Theater Setup.

    From 1998-2016, I had a 44 watt subwoofer with my computer speakers, and I was happy with it. It wore down in 2016. I just got a SVS SB-2000 Pro for a home theater. My room is about 21.5' L x 12' W' with a upwards sloping ceiling that probably goes 12-14 feet high. For some content, with my...

    I have a ROG CROSSHAIR VII HERO (WI-FI). How do I connect it to a SVS SB-2000 Pro subwoofer? I tried connecting a RCA cable from the orange port on the on-board sound card, to the LFE port on the woofer. Two problems. One is that the cable doesn't stay firmly into the orange port. The other...

    5.1 Home Theater Setup.

    Good news. After a 3 hour, 1 minute call with Yamaha (on hold for most of it), they found the solution. When my TV is on, and I am playing music, I use "All Channel Stereo" sound mode. That will send the sound to all my speakers, from my PC.

    5.1 Home Theater Setup.

    Is this normal? I have my PC connected to my Yamaha AVR, then from the Yamaha AVR, out to my TV. When my TV is off, Windows 10 says the output device is the name of the AVR. When my TV is on, Windows 10 says the output device is the name of my TV. TV Off: DSP Program: Surround Decoder...

    5.1 Home Theater Setup.

    Any advice on the following? My PC is connected to the AVR via HDMI. From the AVR, I connect to the TV. When my TV is off, and I play a CD on my PC, then I can upmix it to the surround decoder. And all my speakers are used. When my TV is on, and I play the CD, then the AVR says PCM, and the...

    5.1 Home Theater Setup.

    How do I know if I like my center channel? Or is there anything that I can play that will test it out? Either some broadcast, some music, or something? Something that I can listen / hear to to see if it performs? For the front and rear speakers, I listened to music and would listen for...

    5.1 Home Theater Setup.

    Thanks. I just set up the center channel, and rear speakers on Friday. Subwoofer will be soon, and setup will finally be complete. Then it is just a matter of seeing if I like the subwoofer, and seeing what settings I like.

    5.1 Home Theater Setup.

    The Yamaha AVR has "DSP Profiles". What exactly are the differences between some of these? https://usa.yamaha.com/files/download/other_assets/3/1335553/web_AV19-0030_RX-V6A_ug_UCRABGLFPH_En_A0.pdf Pages 103 - 110. What's the difference between Straight Decode, Surround Decode, and Pure...

    Connecting a TV to an old Pioneer SX-3500 Receiver.

    Thanks. So using headphone out of the TV, to the Pioneer RCA receiver inputs, isn't a clean solution then. What this would do is force to use the home theater speakers. As even if the receiver was off, the TV speakers could not be used. Correct? Instead, if I use your suggested setup with...

    Connecting a TV to an old Pioneer SX-3500 Receiver.

    I'm asking this on behalf of someone. They have a Sony X900F TV. Could they use headphone out on the TV, to one of the RCA inputs on the Pioneer receiver, to use the home theater speakers? This TV is only used for internal apps within the TV. And if this setup was used, then would it have the...

    Another random question. My portable CD player has an optical out port. But it doesn't look like it uses a Toslink cable. What cable do I need? Here's a picture of the port, that the seller took, before I bought the player in 2015. I had asked the seller for a picture of the optical port...

    Thank you, that explains it. I'll make sure that my DAC has a USB connection, when I get one. I have an integrated sound card. Just for reference, these are the audio specifications. https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/ROG-CROSSHAIR-VII-HERO-WI-FI/specifications/ ROG SupremeFX 8-Channel...

    What computer speakers to get?

    Speaking of DACs to use with a PC, I'm a bit confused about the conversion process. If my motherboard has a DAC, then what does connecting another DAC do? Doesn't the DAC receive it when it's already in analog form?

    What computer speakers to get?

    Do DACs have an analog way to adjust volume? Or sometimes they do, sometimes they don't?
