vidiot33 wins an incredibly lucky $750 shopping spree at GIK Acoustics!
GIK Acoustics' products are beyond simple do-it-yourself panels that are found on the market today. They use high-quality materials that will not sag or leak over time, and they build every panel by employing a unique two-frame system. GIK's team of professional builders handcraft each acoustic panel, bass trap, and diffusor to exacting standards, creating attractive and effective products. Dollar for dollar, GIK proudly claims that its products absorb more sabins (sound) than any other traps on the market.
Thank you to all of our members that entered, we appreciate and value each and every one of you. Believe it or not, but we have another Giveaway Contest that is about to begin. We'll drop a few hints on our Facebook feed this week...so check-in there. Otherwise, we'll see you on the forum!
Thank you all so much for the kind wishes, and I will be posting and sharing impressions as the project moves forward. I had started a room treatment thread before the contest was underway and added corner bass traps from GIK, with the kind input of Mr. Brian Pape (who has contributing many valuable insights on HTS), and am very pleased with the results so far. I had suspended the project pending the outcome of he contest, and thankfully, I was fortunate enough to win and the project may now move forward.
I would add that room treatments are an often overlooked component of home theaters. So many of us (myself included) have drooled over the latest speaker or component with little thought to our rooms, and it is my opinion that a properly treated room can do far more for the sound quality than expensive new gear, and for less money in many instances. I had planned to go with GIK regardless of the outcome of the contest, as I feel they offer great value, utility and top notch customer service. Many thanks to HTS and the good folks at GIK, and again to all of you, my fellow home theater enthusiasts!
