Where are they at?

You know, with all of the gear that has come and gone through the years, I am surprised to have not once noticed any room treatments. With it being a known fact that the rooms are pretty much the weakest link [and most usual suspect] in any system, why aren't you using any?

Not dogging, just curious my man. :-s
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 consider myself an audio enthusiast. I'm not an audiophile working to get every nuance of critical listening squeezed out. I like music and I have fun. That being said, I also have a wife. She is very understanding of all the gear but things that change her decor and change it from a room in our house to a studio sound room are pushing it. So, I don't even go there.

Serenity comes not from what you have but knowing what you can live without.

Fair enough...it she ain't happy, nobody's happy.

Well played. I completely understand. 'Nuff said.

Re: Wardsweb - Feed the passion, live the dream

Here is the sun room that is more vintage room than anything else. The speakers are a custom setup. JBL C50 Olympus on the bottom (only using the woofers), custom CNC "smith horn" from some 1" bubinga with CNC aluminum vanes, and JBL 2405 tweeter in a custom stand on top.
