imaging, sound stage, and room design
...With ML, to have the scenario is easier because they are truly di-polar, not bi-polar. Also we use our back wall to have some delay of the music, making us to feel and have better the image and scenario. The ML panels reproduce to the forward, the positive transients and to the back, the negative ones, like a live musical instrument. This feature helps to re-create the ambience with and the right image and scenario. They must disappear and you should listen the musicians performing in front of you. If you have ping-pong notes of a piano, as an example, from left to right, there is something wrong in the settings or you have to work more with their placement...hope this can help! and happy listening,
I have a question about this statement. In my investigations of room treatments, the emphsis seems to be on killing any reflections off the back wall and side walls. But the statement above seems to imply that this is where the image and scenario is coming from on ML speakers. Am I missing something here? (not questioning you Roberto, just a confused neophyte
asking a question)
The reason I ask is because I am about to build a house and have the rare opportunity to optimize my listening environment. I have a rectangular room where I will be setting up my ML's. The speakers will be on the short wall, with generous air space from the back and side walls. I need to figure out how to treat the room to maximize the sound. My current thoughts are sound absorbing behind the speakers and at the first reflection point on the sides, and a difuser on the back wall. I am also considering a slight angle (achieved with staggered studs) on the side walls, similar to that amazing audio room someone posted earlier.
Any thoughts and/or suggestions greatly appreciated! (btw, I'm making my way through the many links in the other post regarding room design)
