    Dirac Unison

    Flavio, I am also now confused. Are you saying that for stereo measurements, the vertical spacing should be 36 inches (18 above the ear and 18 inches below the ear)? If so, the lower measurements will be taken well below the top of the back of the chair. If so, how far away from the back...

    Computer Audio: confusing, complicated, & INCONVENIENT. About MUSIC or inner nerd?

    There are conversions which even you use to improve the sound. How about the RIAA curve? What do you mean by the "the D/A converters used in DSP"? How do you know that the conversions you talk about are not transparent? Have you ever tested your hearing with these conversions? If...

    Computer Audio: confusing, complicated, & INCONVENIENT. About MUSIC or inner nerd?
