Are you interested in modern trends in interior design? Do you prefer high quality to mediocrity? Then feel free to read on. In this article, we link the traditional role of fabrics in interiors, namely of luxury brocade, to its practical function: acoustic optimization of modern interiors. We will explain the basics of acoustics and show you how to add another very important yet invisible value to brocade fabric—acoustic absorption.
“It took me a long time to finish my dream project, a dedicated reference listening room. Investing the time, money and painstaking efforts into the making of a personal ultimate man cave” …
“The main, back wall is covered with a large RDacoustics Hybrid circle pattern absorption Acoustic Diffuser (3 x 2 m). “
“I had much enjoyment playing with the Evo200. This amplifier offers a detailed and fast sound with excellent mid-band and secure top with a beautiful patina that simply makes music human again . . . PL are renowned for value for money and this product carries this forward . . . this is a lot of tubes and music.”
These are hifi enthusiast feelings, nothing measurable or in any way quantifiable. The high end system sounds a bit different (although it wasn’t bad before) now. The sound became clearer, perhaps the vocal and individual instruments now stand out more with quality recordings.
In one word, your Euphoria speakers are perfect. They managed to enthuse our entire family. We even moved a dresser and a terrarium with our belowed lizards out of the living room to avoid sound disruption. Now we are finally enjoying quality listening of various music genres. The speakers can perfectly reproduce piano concertos by Chopin, opera, string quartet, but even Pink Floyd or Eric Clapton. Thank you.
With wooden ears on [note: the Oris 500 front horn], the outcome is quite horn-alike, which for many enthusiasts is something to die for.
“David Brubeck’s “Take Five” (…) was a real eye-opener. All the instruments were sketched precisely, yet not clinical at all, and had a very vivid appearance in a remarkably convincing, big and open soundstage.”
At the first catch, the Evolution speakers enthrall by detailed rendering of midrange and clean, open heights, balanced sound and excellent space reproduction with precise instrument localization. One, that is usually unheard of even in the world of high end.
You feel like sitting in the first row at a concert. (…) [The listening] gives you an amazing insight into the recording—you know exactly where each musician is standing, instruments have real size and most importantly, very accurate spatial anchoring including, for example, reverberation of the cymbal, realistically depicting the entire recording room.
Our new listening studio is not for listening experiences only. It provides us with a good enough space to carry out different experiments, measurements and tests. This article deals with background noise measurements of an audio system, in the hearable spectrum. Using a microphone, we measure the noise coming directly from the speaker. We are going to compare a real noise of an amplifier, once powered directly from the power grid, once using RD EMI Neutralizer power filter.
We bring you a comprehensive account of room acoustics tuning in our listening studio in Rožnov pod Radhoštěm. We have acquired a space in which we were able to realise our demanding requirements, ultimately leading to the best possible acoustic properties of the reference room.
We are about to have a new listening room! On our hands, there is a space a construction of which we will be able to alter in order to reach ideal room proportions and gain the best possible listening space. The articles will be written continuously documenting the birth of the room. Ample acoustic and electrical measurements included.
Soon it will have been nine years since Ian Shepherd declared the Dynamic Range Day. Has something changed?
The unconvential Italian duet—Petra Magoni and Ferruccio Spinetti—released great audiophile album Complici in 2011.
