the many gifts of music… and
of sound with sight… enjoyed
by all, all of the time
through innovative, knowledgeable, high value, high-fidelity A/V system designs.
The two most difficult system designs were done in this room, The Music Room or the Home Theater (I have capitalized the word “The” in The Music Room title because the quality of the sound is of such extremely high caliber that it can be referred to as a reference music reproduction system), and the Bedroom System (The Family Entertainment system was relatively easy because the configuration of the room dictated where the components needed to be placed. But, even though the configuration of the bedroom dictated where the components needed to be placed, the design was difficult because of wall and roof construction).
Home Theater room
began life as a study / fourth
bedroom. But, since the couple
(read: husband) wanted a music room and their children had moved away (and they
wanted to keep it that way), they agreed to have relatively extensive
modifications done to the room to accommodate a sound system as best as
The preliminary evaluations were to acoustically test the room, and then evaluate the results with respect to need to determine the best configuration with respect to possible modifications of the room.
The basic problem with that the room was too small to accommodate the proposed system that would have extended low frequency capability because the husband loved pipe organ music.
was done to best solve this problem was:
After the room was finished, painted, and carpeted; extensive acoustic testing was done. As predicted, the room had a resonance peak at about 60 Hertz, and even with specialty carpet in place, the room was acoustically too live.
was done to best solve these problems were:
Then, the audio/video components and equipment were advised, selected, procured, broken-in, calibrated, installed, and then enjoyed and enjoyed and enjoyed....
We start with a view of those entrance doors from the inside. We will now rotate counter-clockwise to view the rest of the room. Next is a view of the The Reference Loudspeaker System, the DRM Stage II SW, with TV. Then, we have a view of the equipment wall. Last is the view of the entrance doors, again.
