Sometimes its hard for people to parse out the contributions for a given room. Speakers hog the limelight. The Vapor/Lampi room threw a lot of $ at the unsexy world of room treatments, and that obviously paid dividends. People forget that the room is 75%+ of the final equation. I have discovered that for myself....
Nobody wants to admit how important the room is because most of us are stuck with the size/shape and domestic limitations. So we try to over compensate in typical alpha male mode with sexy gear (giant speakers, exotic tubes, thick faceplates, fat cables, lots of technology, etc.). Don't know how a percentage can be assessed but speakers synergize more with the room than the amps IMO.
“Ryan and Co are one of the very few vendors we see that really and truly try to push the envelope for their products. Separate bass cabinets, stacked ply construction, huge roundovers to avoid diffraction, acoustically asymmetric and optimized interiors, and clearly some of the best drivers in the world all add up to THE most consistent and best room at every show. I’m giving Vapor my lifetime achievement award. Yes, I just made that award up right now on the spot. But dammit, they deserve it.”A
I was just noticing that all of the systems have the electronics between the speakers, when folks say that moving racks to the side wall significantly improves sound. Even the rooms that tame corners and first reflections still have a bunch of reflective surfaces where they shouldn't. Is it just the "framing" of electronics that's expected? Room limitations?
Room is 75%? Come on, I'll give you 30% ...T&P, thanks again for the diligence over the years. And you really should think about a seminar training reviewers how to do proper coverage.
