Room Acoustics

You may have heard that “the room is the most important element” to a great listening experience. But how can you be sure you’ve invested in the right acoustical treatments and that they will be deployed properly?

Is your room a dedicated home theater? A media room? Are you a movie viewer, a gamer, a two-channel enthusiast, a sports junkie, or a combination of these? How do these different uses affect the acoustical qualities of your theater or media room?
