Nice setup, I think I had that dream too, or was it a few too many Pilsners.

Mark, good to hear from you again. Have you done any work besides changing the room since the magic carpet ride?
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

I'm about to embark on an acoustic project, the purpose of which, is to rectify a standing wave problem at the second modal frequency of the length of the room. I've been aware for a couple of years that 37Hz has a notch at the seating position. I've traced this mathematically to the reflected wave from the back wall, cancelling out the incident wave from the speakers at the 2nd modal frequency.

The scope of the correct will involve large resonant panels, tuned to absorb 37Hz, so it won't reflect back into the room and form the deep notch that I discovered at 37Hz. Depending on the position of bales of fiberglass, and whether certain doors are open or closed, that notch can be as shallow as 15dB and as deep as 43dB. It's only 3-4Hz wide. I've only seen nulls this narrow in waveguides and RF transmission lines with shorted stubs. Seeing this sharp a null at a low audio frequency is quite phenomenal.

Last month saw the conversion to a theater, and the installation of an InFocus IN82 1080P projector. I may have forgotten to list that in the equipment list. I also left out much of the editing suite because, though it's connected to the audio gear, it's not an integral part of it.

I've got a lot of general renovation projects going on, beside the studio/theater work. In the middle of a 10-year structural renovation project involving the roof and several exterior walls. More than enough to keep me busy indefinately.
Take care,
