Russ,What about the triangles in the upper corners of the room against the ceiling,what are the dimensions and what is the effect of the panels.To help clean up the bass??Russb said:Robin as far as the room treatment goes I used 2'x4'x2" fiberglass panels covered in heavy cotton. The tri-angle is the same thing only 2'x2'x2" turned differently to brake it up.
The tri-angles in the uper corners are made by Michael Green. They are part of his room tune package. they are called corner tunes. They are used to reduce the pressure that is generated in the bass area. The corner is eliminated thus reducing the pressure point.theWB said:Russ,What about the triangles in the upper corners of the room against the ceiling,what are the dimensions and what is the effect of the panels.To help clean up the bass??

Justin I feel the Summits do the bass better between 40hz and 80hz. The drums are more detailed more in time with the panels. The Ascent-i speakers that I had before I got the Summits thay were missing that area of bass. I mean it was there but it was weak. You don't realy need a sub with the Summits but when I had my Descent it did make a big differance in the lower end. The Descent gave a stronger thump. But for $2500 I felt I could live without it for now. The panels to me seem to be almost equal in sound reproduction. The Summits have a bit more detail and bigger sound stage, but over all they are pretty close. The Summits just control the bass area much better.User211 said:Russ,
I own system #115. I just wondered whether you really think the Summits are a MAJOR upgrade over the Ascent/Descent combo you owned. In what ways do you think the Summits beat that combo?
Really curious to know, and PLEASE try to be honest and unbiased about it!

It is quite obvious your a man of great wisdom and refined taste!
I also have the Summits with the Rowland Concerto and 201's, but I currently have an analog only front end. I have a Clearaudio Solution TT with an outer ring clamp, a Unify tonearm, and a Cardas Ruby3 cartridge. My cables are AQ Cheetah and Gibraltar. I've been considering a Wadia player and would be interested in your thoughts about how the Wadia performs in your system. My local dealer is a Wadia dealer and has the new 900 series seperates on display, but for $38K thats a little out of my price range!!! It does sound amazing though. Looking forward to your comments.
We tried the same thing (with Concerto and without) with the big Wadia pieces at my local dealer and had the exact same results as yours. I think that speaks volumes on the Rowland gear. To my ear the Rowland/Summit combo is a perfect match.Russb said:I even tryed using the Wadia directly to my amps. but I find it lacking in the bass area and not as dynamic as with a preamp.
