Quote from: mattstick on October 04, 2006, 12:24:49 PMYou should figure out a way to do an A/B test of FLAC playback vs. WAV playback, I really don't think there will be a noticeable difference.Also, why are you guys adding extra speakers for your playback? You only have 2 ears, and the more speakers you have the more likely you are to be creating some form of phasing/time smear issues.

Quote from: rowjimmy on October 04, 2006, 12:54:21 PMFlac playback, seamless, free, and independent of any major corporation (winamp is owned by aol): http://www.foobar2000.org/Then, go here http://foosion.foobar2000.org/0.9/ and get the "stable components package" which is a bundle of plugins for foobar that includes a stellar plugin that simplifies tagging flacs for live shows (given a txt file that is formatted reasonably.) It's not fancy looking but you want to play flacs not look at them, right?
Quote from: jephrey on October 04, 2006, 01:12:49 PMI think the more speakers is for more volume (as long as the source can power it. Especially if they're hooked in parallel) I don't think there's an issue with phasing/smearing in a 20x20 room but I could be wrong. I suppose it has to do with the acoustics of the room too. I am sure all the cables will be within a few feet of length with each other too.J
Quote from: rowjimmy on October 04, 2006, 02:56:19 PMif you want volume, use a clean amp, clean speakers, and turn the knob clockwise.
Quote from: nab on October 05, 2006, 06:43:22 PMA good pair of headphones always helps to balance things out, right? No guessing about how to arrange your speakers, just plop them on your head and go. That's a subject for further debate.
Quote from: jephrey on October 05, 2006, 05:15:06 PMDoes that same idea apply to vehicles? I have a 7-speaker system. If the 3 speakers on the right side are playing the exact thing and I'm different distances from each, there's a potential problem right? Luckily, a vehicle isn't a soundroom.
Quote from: Marmar on October 06, 2006, 11:06:00 AMYou ever notice on a day with high humidity that bass is extended (thicker sounding) and highs get muddied? Ever notice that day sets sound TOTALLY different than night sets?
