If you could...


If you could build a listening {not theatre} room that you did not need to use for anything else, what dimensions would it be? Ceiling height, etc... for optimal sound quality. Assuming an above average system.

Wouldn't that be great! A dome circular room, and only about $500/ sq. ft. Great thought Sd
Robert Harley's book "The Complete Guide To High-End Audio" recommends a formula with the hight being 1 the length of 1.9 and width of 1.7. If I were designing a room I would splay the walls maybe 2' smaller on the wall behind the speakers than the wall behind me. I have thought a big bow wall behind the listening possition as an effective and look cool. For sure the ceiling would slope, even if only a little was possible. I would look at areas for built in base traps. My new Audiogon friend "nicetom" recommended Everest's book "Sound Studio Construction on a Budget" as an excellant reference. I have seen other Everest books talked about here, that might be the best place to start. Good luck and have fun! J.D.
