Thanks for the notification, TuNk77. It's a false positive, all the VirusTotal detections apart from MAX are using the same BitDefender's engine. I have reported the false positive and expect it to be fixed soon.

Looking at the claimed "threat" name, this is most probably a false positive based on overly generous heuristics. More often than not, particularly if you go out of your way to target older platforms or build in different ways than normal, they'll think you're doing something fishy. Why would anyone legitimate ever bother to run without a CRT runtime, for example? :)

If you're still concerned, you may want to throw the component at some online service that tests with a horde of different AV products, to see if there's actual consensus or just an false positive.

You can give say virustotal.com an URL to have it scan it without you having to download it to your machine.

General Audio / Setting up speakers in room
Last post by JFS -
I am looking to set a listening area for a stereo system:
I have been looking at this website: http://realtraps.com/art_room-setup.htm

The layout at realtraps looks good, but I still would like some feedback on setting up my room. I'm not understanding enough to feel comfortable setting up. I live in a basement; I have uploaded a sketch I made of the room measurements. I was thinking of having the speakers at the front of the room,  where I have the 14' measurement drawn.

I'm not sure what I should get for speakers; am hoping that figuring out the best listening position will help with understanding what I should choose for speakers, and what I will need for amplifier power. I was thinking of using some larger bookshelf speakers since I have read that they will be better for midrange with a smaller cone than they of floor standers (appreciate advice on speaker selection), and I am also hoping to contain the sound from my neighbour upstairs, at least as much as possible.

According to the 38% rule that will leave me about 7' from the wall for a listening area. If I put the speakers 2' from the wall that will leave me 5' from the speakers. I'm thinking that this will help to keep the volume down as I am closer. Would like to know if this is a good distance for listening and soundstage?

I need to keep costs down so would appreciate references to material that will help to apply this and maybe a test tone CD or other method to help place speakers and any materials to help condition the room. How hard will this be for a novice to do and what can I expect on a budget.

Hello Case!
I just wanted you to know that my antivirus (Bitdefender), thinks that your component is a virus.

I guess he has no reasonable answer other than he's opposed to rational and level-headed discussion(?).

Since when has approval from a bunch of strangers on the internet been required?
Sigh! Could you please tell us wherein the previous questions was any kind of approval implied!?

Differently from what you've read into it (ie, too much), I myself was only asking about the reasons - no harm done, methinks.

Or isn't that kind of debate among "a bunch of strangers" expected from a community like this!?

I'll take that to mean you don't see a good reason to do the conversion, either.  If you do, please, by all means: share with the class.

con-fucking-gratulations on censoring me you absolute cunts.

You might want to check the forum edit permissions on people who can't make new posts without moderation.

Is it actually worth bothering reconverting to a newer FLAC version?
Exactly my thoughts. So, am still wondering why bother.
