No reason not to take a measurement with music playing..
Switch Mr.Schumann on and then off for the section of music to be repeated. If there is a failure to detect and record a difference that either means there is no difference or I or we have no predictable method to measure a difference. That does not mean that our bodies and minds cannot sense the difference. Tom
Quincy posted this and they are rechargeable.
I have these on order so I can place a charged unit on other devices at other heights so to experiment quickly to find the most effective placement. Tom
I will do the same with my Music Fan all about reducing interfering energy and increasing laminar flow.
I wonder if a similar type of path crosses with Mr. Schumann and his wave machine. I can take measurements and observations on my grounded 6 shelf Sistrum rack front and center of the stage wall. Will laminar flow affect the concentration or dispersion of the
Mr. Schumann device? Never know till ya try.
I also have triangulated music directors on the floor that reduce floor bounce directly in front of my stand mounted mains. The music directors are slot loaded down there length and vented towards the ceiling to lift the air. Would placing a resonator in each one of my devices benefit or augment dispersion in any way? Wont know till I try. Tom
Respectfully. You are not the only one who follows the need and sense to experiment. New materials and a sense for shapes that augment the sound not to make it chaotic and unpleasant are chief components of my product designs all thru my audio room and sound system. A lifelong expression. Tom
Everything makes a difference
Change the position of one thing in your room and it makes a change in compressive and shear wave interaction and the air that surrounds these objects. They move ever so slightly between other objects and so does the air. Oh I hear a difference Oh I just moved something . Tom
Simply marvelous listening to the paint take effect. Have my 4 subs off just to get a handle on the mains. This new Purifi 6.5 in driver goes low with great control and clean midrange. So far the treatment to the out side service was different right away. Kinda like a fun house mirror at first with imbalance left to right but 24 hrs later with just the monitors going more and better bass..lower noise floor, stage is rock steady backround vocals a plenty but they could use more jump towards my chair..is that because there is less noise or there needs to be more time as well as play time. Overall a very positive difference. Next week some symmetrical cubic crystals in line with my chair and Music Fan in the glide path. Then Mr. Schumann enters the laminar flow line up. Kool..Tom
The lens I use on the floor are triangles a venturi open on both ends that have a slot along its top. These are portable so you can place them on the floor where most beneficial. There is much unfocused energy on both the floor and ceiling. I try to utilize all the dynamic energy my system generates. Ace Venturi is a personafication of the air flow devices I implement. Tom
The link reminded me of the MB Quart vari vent. An external variable tunning vent for loudspeakers.
Hmmm. Makes me wonder if you could do the same thing with slot loading a ceiling rafter or 2 especially if the sound room is located below ground or in a basement. You could locate false ceiling registers in locations to alter pressure. You could add or remove insulation in the ceiling as measured.. Tom
I have my single placed on top of my brass Platter Ground which sits on the top shelf of a Sistrum rack.
The unit faces up at an acoustic lens of sorts that surrounds my projection screen. The acoustic lens was conceived to capture and focus energy that travels the ceiling some which maybe lost especially bass and redirect to the listening area. Room is 27/21/9 with another acoustic lens that covers a soffit.
To my ears the resonator sounds as if it adds space to a system that is already wall to wall. This added space seems to come with a higher degree of focus and detail and with a more stable image all across the wall. The image seemed wider more stable and made me feel more at ease and relaxed..not stuck to my chair with my head in a vice. May add 5 to 7 more to place inside more of my acoustic lenses that reside on the floor in 4 locations.
I have been using Audiopoint inverted couplers, the APCD4s for several years and with proper placement and the right tensioning I can extend the soundstage down a couple of long walls..To tight =s too bright.. back the tension off a touch and there you are. Or I can focus the center stage. If you want it wrong keep adding more and it can sound like stretched pseudo surround sound..your choice you may like that sound. These can be threaded into mounted panels or use brass threaded inserts into materials and then thread the coupler and tune to your delight..Look at the overall shape and the center is inverted and will capture, focus and disperse energy or with another of our devices ground the resonant energy. Brass is the metal of music and Geometric shapes matter.
This method of usage with this specific product is something I have adapted for my own use. I am a company member. http://starsoundtechnologies.com/productsDetail.php?APCD4-Invert-38
When a geophysicist, mathematician and co designer on some of my projects came to visit I had her take a listen to my just turned on system. I asked her to close her eyes and spread her arms to the left and right edges of the soundstage. She expressed 11 to 1..
After 45 mins of playing time and repeating the same tracks at the same exact volume for her to close her eyes again and spread her arms to the left and right extension of the soundstage... ...she expressed 9 to 3 so it is the width of the room at 20.5 feet. She couldn’t believe the difference saying there was no way warm up or breakin of materials could affect electron flow and make that sort of difference. She could not express a different reason as to why. Her exposure to audio is a Bose system and her daughter is a cellist. Tom
I myself have been underwater with 2 chn.surround sound for many years..First with my modified Dunlavy SC4's and for the last many years with the 3rd revision of the Caravelle speaker..soon to be the 4th relife. A constant over that time has been the mechanical grounding inside and out of every component, Argent Room Lens (Mr.Helmholtz) acoustic angles on ceiling and floor, acoustic paint, active laminar flow enhancement device..and treatment of incoming AC with enhancement coating..
That's all for now..until tomorrow.
