RSAD Music Room, a Two-channel Audio System by Ridge Street Audio

1~0
Room Size
12.5'W x 20'D x 7.5'H
System Overview
This system really isn't just about enjoying music. It's more about creating a memorable experience. All components and component changes must make that cut before they take up residence in the music room. The presentation is extremely holographic and immediate - the whole back portion of the room becomes the recording venue. Tonal Balance is very good but need to treat the room better to even out the bass a titch. Front to back layering is quite apparent which digital usually has a hard time portraying. Lateral imaging can make the room boundaries disappear if the recording captured the venue size well. No sense of gear playing back music - just very easy to get swept away to a performance. System Approach and Philosophy: Optimized Simplicity.
Music Preferences
Chamber, Baroque, Pop Rock, Jazz, Slam Symphony, Punkabilly and Death Folk. (Genre/Selections): I enjoy most genres but have a particular fondness for acoustically recorded material such as smaller chamber works or Jazz. On the other hand, Big Band can be lots of fun too.
