Can anyone recommend a half decent soundbar to go with my Justop G client htpc? Looking for something around the £100 mark with Bluetooth subwoofer. Don't really mind whether its a 2.1 or a 5.1 system as long as its around that price range. I have a choice of either usb or analogue jack input, not too bothered which is used. TIA

Hi, I've just setup MP 1.12.0 as an alternative to WMC given Windows 10 no longer supports WMC. I've got static as well when playing MKV files, the TV audio seems fine not having any problems with that. I've tried different combinations of settings, and all I can seem to achieve is static or no audio at all. HELP! I've got my audio...

Sure. Let me know if you run into any kind of a dead end. Can be overwhelming sometimes with all its possibilities... I'll attach the part of my config with the lav stuff.

Impressions: First of all, the sound is much better than with the Pioneer I had to replace, surely because of the higher output specs. This might also be because of some processing to allow full surround feeling even at lower levels that I'm using. I had this on an older, non-HDMI Pioneer that I loved, and they called the setting...

Actually some sound cards out there do a very good job at mixing your audio through their optical S/PDIF output. See Dolby Digital Live, that makes optical output from those sound card the premium audio solution for your PC.

In this end of year 2014 I decided to eventually upgrade my sound system from basic stereo to surround. For years I was eying the systems from Teufel so I decided to try out that Cubycon 2 Digital HD. For various reason it was quite a disappointment so I decided to send it back. I'm now trying out SONOS' PLAYBAR + SUB + 2x PLAY:1 and...

I eventually got HDMI audio working with the replacement decoder but I've upgrade to a GTX750 in the meantime. I'm also sending back my Teufel Cubycon 2 Digital HD system since I'm quite disappointed with it. I got a SONOS PLAYBAR + SUB + 2x PLAY:1 instead and it feels like SONOS designed that system just for me :)

I see your point about the skin. It's true that ffdshow is doing a very good job but I've heard so many good feedback about the Qdeo conversion that I wanted to test it, but maybe it's too complicated for too little improvments. I don't think I will find a direct tool/plugin of MePo to do it but my idea was the following: -...

Got a Xonar DX myself. In general im pretty happy with it due to the DTS live function. Soundquality wise, I think the speakers used are the biggest influence normal people notice.

I set up a new Onyko HT-S3300b AVR over the weekend and so far everything appears to be working great, except that I have this one minor irritation that I can't seem to find a solution to.

It is worth noting that it won't decode Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD Master Audio, but it will pass through analog LPCM 7.1. LPCM is as good as if not better than the other formats, but isn't available on all releases (not sure of the number). In an ideal world it would be possible to buy a decoder for the other HD...

Hi guys. I am going down the hi-fi route but am buying older gear which only has analogue in. You can get some real nice audio gear for next to peanuts if you dont mind second hand. I believe to get quality audio you need an external DAC, because inside a PC case is a very electrically noisy environment. These are stupidly expensive...

No, but I have the RX-V1065 and would definitely recommend Yamaha. All three are great brands but it depends what speakers you (groan) intend to pair it with. What features draw you to the Yamaha over the others? And do you have any specific models from Sony and Marantz picked out? Do you have an eventual upgrade path in mind...

Hi, For your first problem I would check the settings of your sound system for something like auto standby. Another option could perhaps be to disable HDMI-CEC. Regarding your second problem, have a look at https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/windows-7-half-fullscreen.71785/ .

Not in the Windows control panel, AFAIK. If there is nothing in your sound card drivers etc the other option is to use FFDShow audio decoder and use it's 'mixer' to do the downmixing (which what I do on my system - I run a 'quad' speaker setup (FL/FR/RL/RR) so I have to do both upmixing and downmixing :)).
