This is a very good reading thread. Jim1961 I'm very impressed with your set-up
And the measurements you posted. I also read the thread on gearslutz,a lot of
Hard work involved there.
I briefly checked into room treatments. This was after I heard some paradigm
Studio 100's in a very well treated room at a dealer. Before we turned the system
On I looked around at the treatments and said to myself "this is way overkill and
I could NEVER get away with this" . The wife would shoot me. When he turned
On the system my jaw nearly hit the floor!! Yeah it was that good. I was at the
Dealer to pick up my Athem MRX-300. I bought it because of the Anthem room
Correction system. I have Paradigm Signature speakers in my living room.
The idea of a flat in room response is something I strive for. But, I also realize that
There are many variables in the equation. Obviously is your own hearing and the hearing
Of the recording engineer, and the mastering of the source material,etc,etc. I guess the bottom
Line is does it sound good to you? If your hearing is starting to go,then maybe you might
Want to boost the treble. I don't see a problem with that.
I have a 2.1 system set-up in a spare bedroom. I'm thinking of getting some basic
Room treatments and REW and see what I can accomplish. Using an outlaw audio
RR 2150,paradigm sub w/PBK and Studio 40's.
I thought I would post the ARC graphs of my left/right speakers so folks could
See what the room correction of ARC did. Yeah,definitely not an "audiophile"
Approach but, it works for me. ARC set the cut-offs for my mains at 60hz, and
I basically have a plus/minus 2db response. I'm very happy with the sound.
PS: the green line is the corrected freq response.
