About Me

  1. Here's my dilemma: Our local community theater stages mostly plays and musicals. They have a small theater with what amounts to a 5.1 surround system (L,R,C,RR,LR,LFE) permanently installed. They use this primarily for sound effects and music cues in plays and sound reinforcement in musicals. They have a desktop PC to run their SFX cues and a Focusrite 18i20 USB interface to route the sound to their console which then routes the audio to their 6 active speakers through balanced +4 Db lines. All this works fine and sounds lovely. Now, they have decided to fill in some gaps in their schedule with "Family Movie Nights." They have contracted with Swank for the public performance rights of the "films" and Swank will provide the media in the form of a blu-ray DVD. I want to help them make the right choices in terms of playing that media from their current system. They have, as of yet, not purchased a blu-ray player and they have essentially three choices: 1.) A stand-alone DVD player 2.) Add a USB DVD player 3.) Add an internal player I have found no stand-alone DVD players with professional output levels and interfacing consumer gear into this console is somewhat problematic so this is not my first choice. An external USB DVD would be the best solution because it would mean zero downtime for their computer. An internal player is possible, but properly interfacing the drive with the motherboard is always a challenge. (FWIW--MoBo is MSI -7693) Regarding playback from a PC, what I am most unclear about is the middleware that will allow us to route the audio from the DVD to the 18i20 to get the audio to the console (SFAIK--there is no "surround decoder" in the 18i20. It will need discrete channels.). What software is best to use to play the show? We, of course, would also like the drive to be reliable (and rugged) so your thoughts on brand and model would be greatly appreciated. I am also wondering if there are any DRM compatibility issues that are distinct to audio that I should worry about or if that is all handled in the DVD device. So what say ye? Am I doomed or is there an easy answer?
  2. Hi all, I realize that this is not in relation to CD's or strictly audio but I think this may be the best place to find help. My husband owns 800 DVDs. For a long time he's wanted to find a way to rip them into some sort of hard drive to have easy accessibility to it from his devices. I am sure this question must have been posted previously in regards to DVDs. What I am looking for is the following: - Fastest external hardware to rip DVDs and Blu Ray. If it can handle multiple disks, even better. - Fastest way to convert these files to playback for media manager. - Recommended media manager (external hard drive + system) We currently have an iTV, would we be able to use that connected to a hard drive? Total novice and I would love to figure this out for my husband so I can give it to him as a Christmas gift. Thank you in advance.
  3. Hi, am looking for a optical drive to transfer all songs from my music CDs into my Mac, may I ask for recommendation and advise from any audiophile brother here? I'm using iMac and iTunes to store music data, the built-in drive sometime doesn't work and CD jammed inside sometime, so I bought a LaCie slim DVD+/-RW to replace the built-in because it seems that the LaCie is specially made for Mac, but it doesn't work after a while, so I want to get another one that can transfer music data into my Mac perfectly. - Does anyone know any really good CD/DVD-Rom Drive in the market? - I found one from a Japanese brand called "Buffalo", is this good? or actually the core of it is same as LaCie? Buffalo Inc. Thanks for helping

  5. I'll start with this both sonically and visually stunning classic : Talking Heads 'Stop Making Sense' (1984) [video=youtube;HFS2oz-i3Ik] (I'm pretty sure there are many audiophiles here who are videophiles too)
  6. Are you still spinning discs too, whether vinyl itself or various 12cm varieties ? A Thread then to share discs—ɹǝʌǝʇɐɥʍ, whenever released, we'd like to Comment upon Well, I recently bought all 10 SACD Soundtracks of Wong Kar Wai's films : He's celebrating 25 years... Generally, the most accessible, English-wise, are tracks in My Strawberry Nights : Incidentally, Anniversary set also available individually in vinyl
  7. Firstly, apologies if this is in the wrong section. I have a great home cinema system which I use for watching movies and listening to 5.1 albums (Blu-ray and DVD). Seeing as this set up is located in the living room of my home I only really get to listen to my 5.1 albums now and then, I'm usually relegated to a bedroom upstairs where I have another BD player and some headphones (Sony wireless). The problem I have is that the BD player doesn't allow me to change the EQ settings, so everything sounds as though it has too much bass through the headphones (which aren't the problem, I checked). Basically, some of my DVDs/BDs contain high-res stereo which is why I'm using a BD player and not just a CD player. Can anyone help me find a BD player which has EQ control and left/right (the red and white) output sockets? It doesn't need to be 5.1 capable and I'm not interested in its picture output quality, only the audio.
