What kind of listening chair
What I’ve learned is that there is a room mode in the vertical center of the room (as well as other places). So, consider that along with: ceiling height, ceiling/floor reflection points, tweeter height, and listening-position-ear-height.

I will be in a different, better room. What follows from there is not clear, but it will likely involve different room treatments and possibly different speakers. It will almost certainly involve a swarm.

Stereo Times list of the " 2020 MOST WANTED COMPONENTS"
I found this list to be more useful than I thought it would be, given some of the comments. As someone recently shopping for a lot of gear, there were more than a few things there which would have been within reach and good to know about. I look a...

@audio2design What’s funny is these people will be the first to put down or attempt to discredit scientists and engineers who have done the work, --unless-- what those scientists and engineers say agrees with what they already believe. It’s a vali...
