Re: [regsaudioforum] Re: impulse response
- I'm with Tom on this one. I never close my eyes at concerts and always listen at home with the room lighted and my eyes open. The visual aspect is important to me when listening to music, even recorded music, and I strongly disagree with the idea that this is in any way disdainful of the music.Ned
- Hi Tony,
Thank you for your thoughtful comments on this question (whether
sensibly applied dsp correction still makes things worse outside the
sweetspot--and possibly affects the room sound so much that even the
sweetspot isn't so sweet after all).
REG has noted before (in his TAS review of the Gradient Active
Revolutions) that the QUAD 63 et al. are exemplary in terms of
controlled dispersion. And your specially treated listening room takes
most early reflections out of the equation. Under these circumstances,
dsp would seem less likely to misfire even if you move outside of the
sweetspot. A speaker with nasty off-axis tweeter flares set up in an
untreated room--maybe that would highlight the limits of what dsp can
I wonder if Goran would care to comment on your observations.
