…I started to study the requirements for an excellent listening room. It is not that easy especially when you build up a completely new design & listening architecture.
Dampening but also establishing a profound power sound system I installed
a wooden ceiling with different long chambers to let the sound flow. You will also see special reflexion inlays in these chambers. But this is only one of the measurements I took into place.
The floor is a 20mm wooden parquet one which takes up a big carpet. At the side walls you will see LPs and CDs as well as books in the rear compartment to diffuse unwanted reflections.
Besides of a small window at the right front side you will only find a large glass face on top of the rear room, in this way avoiding unwanted glass impacts.
The walls are made of a 40 cm thick special concret mixture, should be the best in terms of a good listening room. I abstained from bringing in a floor heating or any air condition apparatus.
I am enjoying the room and the equipment since over 15 years! Quite a good investment when looking back.
