Do YOU have a flat frequency response in your room?
@kota1, thanks for the compliment. The layout above looks like it will provide a good environment for our fine art of audio appreciation. 😁  
Do YOU have a flat frequency response in your room?
Flat on-axis frequency response is clearly the engineering objective for most of these systems. Those that deviate significantly earn lower ratings in double-blind subjective evaluations. Although there is more to be considered, a flat direct sou... 
What is the forums opinion of SVS subs?
@ratboysr, I may be wrong but I get the impression you think it necessary to have all subs in a multi-sub set up exactly same model. You are free to use a different type and in fact may prove beneficial. For example when helping a friend with 3 su... 
Question About Capacitor Upgrade in Tube Amp
First: disregard zipost's rude comments. He's just grumpy because he only took second prize in the local village idiot competition. Hey zippy, better luck next time. The Willsenton marked 0.33ufd cap is there to shunt any noise (high frequency cr... 
What is the forums opinion of SVS subs?
I own one of each, a REL S2 and SVS SB1000 Pro, and I prefer the SVS. They augment a pair of OB speakers in a 16' x 21' room to great effect where you feel immersed in the sound. As @soix mentioned, 2 subs better than 1.  Easier to get good sound... 
Room correction room system vs ears….
OK, some good advice here. All rooms need treatment, it is paramount for good sound. EQ/DSP may help after getting the room sorted out. The problem with room correction electronics is they can't reduce the overly long decay of sound in an untreate... 
Acoustic Curtain for listening area
OP,  curtains can help and I do not know the product you have ordered but would like to point out that the smaller the room the more you need absorption and that absorption needs to be broad-band in performance. Usually 4" thick frames are used t... 
Recommendations for HiFi Listening Room
Some have mentioned that the room acoustics are important, in fact treatment is paramount. I know a few who believe that if amps and speakers are properly designed they will work in any room, well sure they will 'work' but not in a satisfying way.... 
DAC comparison
@charles1dad, thanks. @vinylvalet, yes, Audio Note, SW1X, Merason, Abbas and a small handful of others are eschewing the fashionable 'does everything' DAC for one that prioritises power supply and the analogue stage and by omitting superfluous f... 
DAC comparison
My Wadia 15 which is now about 29 years old gets used all the time and it is redbook only. I also have a Bryston BDA-1, bought so I could listen to some hires but seldom listen to it because the Wadia gives me everything I want and its build sugge... 
Is There A Big Difference Between Subwoofers From Different Manufacturers
Hi OP, I have a small SVS SB1000 PRO and a REL S2. The SVS is, in my system, superior. The REL is more expensive and this reinforces my opinion that RELs are overpriced and overrated and they are certainly not unique in accepting high-level input.... 
Most Realistic Recordings
Dee Dee Bridgewater .. Live at Yoshi’s. Track 2 has the most realistic tambourine I've heard on digital and I use it a lot as a sanity check for realism  
My endgame system I think
Hi OP, the attention you have paid to room acoustics is impressive. Most just add some treatment as an afterthought. Congratulations, however you seem a little unsure about it possibly being overdamped. May I suggest you, if haven’t already, downl... 
“House” Character of Popular $20-$30k Speakers
I second the suggestion to consider Vandersteen which IMO represent excellent value. Also check out Egglestonworks.  
Turn off or leave on?
@kgbspy,  (putin, is that you ???) makes me wonder if any of you got electronics training Ok you can climb down from your pedestal now and go ... well go somewhere. If the component is solid state and does not consume huge amounts of power wh...
