    Foobar plays FLAC files natively. If you want to encode files into FLAC, you will need to point Foobar to the FLAC encoder, as you found out. Just toss a copy of FLAC.exe into the Foobar folder and...

    I used a CS400i with those for a while and it didn't sound terrible, although it didn't exactly match either. Probably the best you are going to do in a compact speaker is a Monitor 5 with SL2000...

    Did you level match the speakers at the listening position? Simply switching back and forth with the volume control in the same position will lead to many of the observations you describe (fuller...

    It does sound to be an issue of movies having more dynamic range than your family desires. I have a similar issue in that my fiance does not like even moderately high volumes. Setting the volume to...

    Either you can hear the improvements or you can't, either you knew what you were doing when installing the rings or you didn't. It's not meant to be rude and insulting to tell you that if you cannot...
