    How do I connect my Subwoofer???

    Ohh gotcha that makes sense. So with this method, the low pass filter should work on the sub still right? Im not entirely sure if the low pass filter will work or not.    This is what the SVS manual says about that:    "There two sets of output connectors on the STA-400D. One set (labeled...

    How do I connect my Subwoofer???

    Wait  Sorry bit confused. If I have 1 stereo receiver/integrated amp, you're saying use the Pre-Out with RCA cables and put those into the sub's line in? I dont understand the high pass to speaker amp's line in part.    Currently I'd have a dac into the integrated amp's audio 1 line in...

    Review: NwAvGuy's O2 DIY Amplifier

    Quote: I figured it out. It came with 2 sets of screws. I'm good.          On another note, I can't wait to see what his full desktop+usb dac version looks like. This current O2 is said to be better than the new E17 and the M-stage and for $150, it's a pretty good deal, so...

    So.. does anyone know anything about painting?

    Hmm I might call around and pay like $20 for someone to do it for me or just leave it. It has some scratches and stains and smells a bit odd so I wanted to redo the covering.

    So.. does anyone know anything about painting?

    Anyone a bit of a hobbyist for painting and crafts? Auto repair, whatever, etc.    I'm looking to COMPLETELY strip everything off this receiver's cover/coating and repaint it. It's pretty much gray on the inside (metal) and the outside is black. It's got some scratches and stains on the...

    Help choosing a portable amp and/or DAC for my Android phone (less than $100)

    The source will be my Android mytouch 4g and I'm looking for a DAC/AMP to listen to music with. I sold my Ipod Classic because the Android phone does all my music. I can't possibly have all my music on 32gbs but I use Audiogalaxy to stream high quality audio off my desktop which gives me access...

    Why does 1 of my receivers sound worse than the other?

    I have 2 receivers. One is a Denon and the other is an Onkyo. The Onkyo is much newer with HDMI and all that stuff but the Denon sounds better. Noticeably. Is it because the Denon has a better built in DAC? Or can it be due to something else? Btw, this is for both speakers and the headphone out...

    Burn-in. Real or not?

    Quote: I'm not following. Where's the error in my logic? Its phrased a little weird, I was groggy but I was stating that burn in is real. BurnIn is simply mechanical parts getting older.

    To grill or not to grill.

    Sounds different on mine. Polk Monitor 30 Series II. The screen as thin as it is, makes the sound come out in unison and somewhat blended. Without the screens, it's a lot clearer in my opinion.
