Hi Everyone, I'm launching my own channel, or rather, using one I had for the first time ever, to post videos that aren't appropriate for the Audioholics channel. I know I have been MIA for a while, and this is why. I relocated to Florida recently and the disruption made it hard to continue making content for Gene. Now that the dust has settled and I am more stable, I will be producing much more content for both Audioholics and myself. The videos on my channel will largely be both personal and technical. That is, I will cover things related to designing and building our new home including the new home theater. I will also be covering technical topics in ways I want to cover them. For example, the soundproofing in this home theater will rely on some new techniques and products that are not widely used by others. I plan to spend far too much time discussing why I am doing what I am doing and how it works. To give you an idea, the outside walls of the theater will have an STC rating in excess of 75, among the highest achievable. While Green Glue will be used in parts of the build, the main thing I want to excite you about is that I will be making walls without the traditional decoupling methods, relying largely on traditional wood construction techniques and one specialized part. This keeps cost and complexity down, while having lab tested UL approved structures that outperform nearly anything else on the market. If you can put up a stud wall, you can handle this. If your contractor can put up a stud wall, he\/she can handle this. \n\nThis first video is just an intro, nothing all that interesting, but it gives you a chance to see my two daughters and the dug up plot of land we are building our house on. Over the next 6 months this will look increasingly like "this old house" if Bob Vila built ultra modern homes with soundproof theaters.\n\nThe channel will also occasionally cover very nerdy acoustic topics or document experiments. Subscribe and like so I can justify making more conent.\n\nFor Gene, well, just wait. A lot more content is coming, with reviews and technical discussions for many new products.\n\nIn the mean time, please help me get to my first 1000 subscribers!
