  2. Two Channel Audio
    Wayne's thoughts on optimizing the rear wave of a dipole speaker to enhance the imaging make a lot of sense to me. So, I spent some time yesterday messing around adding reflective panels behind my ESLs to see if I could better optimize the sound. Because I'm still monkeying around with the ESL...

    A Soundstage Enhancement Experience One of the side projects during our recent High-End Amplifier Evaluation Event at Sonnie Parker's Cedar Creek Cinema was working on the soundstage and imaging with Sonnie's speakers. His MartinLogan ESL hybrid electrostatics were set up very nicely when we...
  4. System Setup and Connection
    Hello again! As I'm sure you all know, loudspeaker placement can be of paramount importance when trying to optimize tonal balance, soundstage depth, imaging, clarity, etc. A great deal of thought, time, and effort was put in to positioning the components of our TARA Labs listening room. Some of...
  5. Audio Processing
    Is it as important to setup a pair of speakers for soundstage imaging when you are using Audyssey? I am tending to think the differences in speakers is not as great when they are run through the processor vs no processing at all. Which brings up another issue... Does it make auditioning a pair...

I had always assumed there was only one way of looking at it, but of course, as with most things, that is not true. So now I am really curious to hear how others define good imaging. What is...
  8. Pro Audio
    While listening to a recording of Beethoven's Seventh Symphony a while ago, on headphones, I realized that the soundstage seemed chopped in two. I listened with different headphones and checked settings on my music server to make sure nothing was wrong there. I finally brought up Voxengo's SPAN...

    Still have a few small issues with my surround sound. Cant quite get that 3D sound that I used to have. When glass would shatter in a movie, it would sound like it sprayed all across the room! Now its not locked in like it used to be. Any suggestions on what it might be? Is it a placement issue...
  10. Home Audio Acoustics
    Over the last year that I have had my 5.1 system set up, I have become more and more aware that I am not getting the most our of my setup as far as soundstage and imaging go. On a lot of material, everything seems squished into the center of the room. One reason I know that I can get more out...
