OK, attitudes in check fellas, I have some questions and obersvations about THX, I'm hoping that we can discuss like adults.
Essentially, that says to me that the folks at THX believe that ALL soundtracks have incorrectly mastered center soundtracks. I think that is too generic of an assumption. If you are getting (in a non-THX environment) even SPL's, I don't see the benefit. Am I reading this wrong?Granted, THX Cinema RE-EQ circuit tames the center down a little but remains sonically intact for the same dynamic as that of your mains which an eq can not do
Ok, if you got issues with room acoustics, OK. But what does a THX EQ offer that another that any other EQ doesn't? I don't believe that a THX badge on a piece of gear automatically makes it superior.Now I believe a THX rated EQ should be USED with a THX processor to fully tune a room
Now, as far as timbre matching on all the channels....'Rucy, you got some 'splaining to do. How is this possible? Are you saying that say you here a guy walking accross your rear soundstage (or front for that matter) that the actual soundtrack has a flaw in it that would change from one channel to another? How is this possible? It's the same sonic event that has been mastered onto different channels, I don't get how the timber changes.
Same thing with the phase correction. How do you do this via THX?
Does it come with a flunky that will invert your speaker wires as needed? "JUAN PHASE SHIFT! MUY PRONTO!!!"
I'm just saying, explain this to me, I don't understand how a THX processor does this.
Anywho....these are my thoughts and questions..
