A sweet sounding moderately priced system. To improve the sound I turned the room into a magical sounding room with my DIY acoustical treatments. A labor of love building my treatments. I spent very little money and saved a many $1000 to beautifully transform the acoustics of my music room. To quote a well known acoustical engineer.."I'd rather listen to a mid-fi system in a high end room than a high end system in a mid-fi room, any day." Ditto! I believe this is what I achieved. I love the way my "small" rooms sounds--"Big".
sparky....I used the albums to work as ceiling diffuser and they worked well. I bought about 60 albums at .99 cents each. I used one inch PVC pipe cut to three inches in length. Cut one end of each 3" unit at different angles (the records need to be a various angles to diffuse sound wave); hot glued the angled end to the record; and spray painted the PVC pipe black. How I attached them was by using a rather large push/tack pin that I purchased at office depot. This particular push/tack pin would fit perfectly into the free end of the PVC pipe with a flush fit. I used a hot glue to attach the push/tack pin into the PVC pipe. Then I simply pushed the tacks into the ceiling. It was really that easy. The key is finding the push/tack pins. The ceiling diffuser looks "cool"--how befitting to have a diffuser using records in a music listening room--and sounds great acoustically.
Funny Tom....everyone Tom is my cousin who was instrumental in getting me to stop spending money on audio equipment improvements/tweaks and spend the money and time to acoustically treat my room. I am glad I listened to his advice. My room sounds wonderful. Thanks Tom...BAH-BAH-BAH!
thanxs! I love the way my music room sounds. Now I comtemplating doing the same downstairs in my movie room with acoustical treatments. Couldn't have done it without my wife's help....see made the covers for my bass traps. Hey guys...."don't I have a great wife?"
