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 the factors to consider were: the proximity of the loudspeakers to the walls, the listening height of the stand-mounted loudspeakers, the angling of the loudspeakers towards the listener, and much more. I would be curious to know which are the most important factors you all personally take in to account when positioning your components?

Room acoustics, size, furniture, drapes...etc...etc all can affect the sound emanating from your speakers, also the type of speaker will make a difference (direct, bipolar, electrostatic). A speakers best placement takes experimentation on the part of the owner, its part of the hobby. Listen, move (better or worse), move again, take notes, find your nirvana

I have a hard time imagining doing a speaker setup without L & R impulse diagrams to work with. Any reflections that pair up L/R get aligned to within 50 uS (yes, micro seconds - roughly 1/2 inch precision) by refining placement, any that do not pair up get absorbed &/or dissipated with treatments. Listening angle can also make a big difference.

That is my "short version.":bigsmile:
