Got my 2nd sub today. And at first ... I was kind of bummed. It sucked out a bunch of my bass. I thought, "How can this be? Two subs is supposed to be better, more even!"

Then I realized I...

I saw my urologist today, and he asked if I was ready to go back on testosterone. I asked him if my blood results said I had insanely low T levels, and he said, "Yes, insanely." But he also said he...

Well, the ashwagandha certainly helps with stress. But it also makes me a bit sleepy. I've seen reviews suggesting to take it at night, so I've switched to that. Better energy during the day, and...

Floyd then goes on to share lots of research that's been done since that 1971 one (that nobody read :-)). The ideal for movie listening seems to be Dolby's advice for 5.1 (with the surrounds a...

It's funny: I've been continuing to read through the Floyd book. Shortly after I found that I like having my surround speakers at roughly 90 degrees, I got to this part of his book:

Audyssey XT was a big deterioration in the sound. Couldn't stand it. I like XT32 far better. It does much more EQ at the low end, and far less higher up.

Yeah, but you're doing the same...

Sort of. I placed my surround speakers at +/- 80 degrees, so just slightly forward of being directly out to the sides. When I run music through the multi-channel stereo mode, it "upmixes" stereo. ...

Yeah, I had a run of bad luck between those two docs. My urologist thinks I could still be a good candidate for T, but didn't get into any details yet. He did make a point of voicing his...

I kept thinking about Floyd Toole's guidance that EQ should be avoided above the "transition frequency," especially as I've seen other authors with the same advice.

Yep. Lots of my current issues are classic symptoms of apnea. And I've heard some folks say that CPAP was "life changing."

I hope that CPAP could be a short term solution, as you're saying. ...

Similar to others, I try to keep it under $150, except when I'm staying in very expensive places. Another exception is when going to the beach; I'll pay extra for oceanfront. For us, that's a big...
