Back in May I wrote a blog post about room acoustics (cannily called ‘We need to talk about room acoustics‘). Long story short, the folks at GIK Acoustics had (some months prior) very kindly loaned me a bunch of acoustic panels to use in my Reel-to-Reel Rambler demo room at Hi-Fi Show Live. I was so impressed by them that, before returning them, I took them to my home listening / living room and had a bit of a play. The effect was so dramatic that I immediately realised I could never now live without them. However, the panels I had borrowed were very far from liveable with in my much more compact space, having been designed for a considerably larger one, and so I set out on a quest to find the perfect balance between sonic nirvana and home-friendliness.
Read all about phase II of the challenge, involving lots of shuffling and fine-tuning of a range of bass traps, on my Reel-to-Reel Rambler blog at: In pursuit of sonic nirvana: the GIK Acoustics experiment continues
