I am thoroughly enjoying the discourse between TumaraBaap and Terry Montlick. Having waded through the Toole paper so graciously provided by the former, I know from where he comes.
Absolutely not to take anything away from Dr Toole, but I still need to reconcile his direction - he didn't present it as a conclusion - on absorption with my own senses. And my senses tell me that reducing/eliminating the first (and strongest) reflections will improve imaging. I know that when I added my absorbers (2" OC SelectSound Black) to the first reflection points, I achieved nearfield listening vis-a-vis the LCR speakers at my main seating positions. How can anything be better than nearfield listening? How can letting the room affect what the artist/engineer/producer mixed be better?
