If they are pictures then it is even more nonsense, what are they trying to do. If they are pictures then put up a picture, nothing of no substance will produce anything of any substance, it is all

Most probably, although I have never had any room treatment in my own listening room. I have heard a demo were room treatments were put in and taken out and you can definitely hear the difference. Would the same difference be made by a pair of curtains, I don't know. I am sure if your listening position is close to the back wall you do need something behind you. If I were lucky enough to have a dedicated music room it is certainly something I would consider.savvypaul wrote: ↑Wed Nov 22, 2017 5:15 pmI think if were lucky enough to have a dedicated music room, I would still have carpet, rug, big sofa and chairs, heavy curtains etc etc. I mean, have you seen me? I don't keep myself minimalist, let alone my room...
Turning the question around...do you agree that in a traditionally furnished room, given a little bit of thought to absorbtion, studio type treatments are not necessary?
Don't want to confuse you Doc, someone I know purchased his pair of Cube 2's and A80 off ebay. I went with him and we met the seller at Leicester Forest services on the M1. He ended up returning them due to a fault with one of the A80's, although when I heard I did not notice a fault and thought it sounded good.Dr Bunsen Honeydew wrote: ↑Wed Nov 22, 2017 4:46 pmSo he bought them, you are confusing me.
Re room treatment, it is just another bullshit to fall for. Where do you think they get the materials to make these things, do you think they have magic up new materials. You can buy the stuff for a few £ or even some pence at B&Q or Homebase. It is all marketing and bollocks which is why he has to do a selling job at MCRU place, foot taping and all that.. There is nothing they make that you couldn't knock up in less than an hour for a few quid. And as far as the daft pictures FFS they are pictures, so buy some picture and stick / hide a slab of polystyrene behind it. I doubt it will do anything. Bass traps (as called) in reality they couldn't catch a cold, it is just tarted up foam blocks.
Why try to fight the room when you can work with it.
You may well be able to make some room treatments cheaper, but not everyone has the inclination or workspace to do it. I don't believe they are pictures, the ones that appealed to me were move arty designs, presumably to stop reflections. FFS you'll have us making our own amps next.
So where is this nva stuff now?
Many of the rooms at hifi shows use these treatments, and they don't even sell the stuff. Manufacturers and dealers want their rooms to sound there best and they are using room treatments. Make of that what you will.
If we judged real hi-fi systems on most of the stupidity that goes on in hi-fi show dem rooms none of us would have good music..
Have any of you tried listening to your systems, with your hands cupped behind ears. It's unnatural way of listening, but the results are interesting.
